We were made for relationships. However, if you talk to most people, they struggle to find a deep connection with family and friends. Why are meaningful friendships so difficult to find, how can we begin to pursue them, and what can Jesus teach us about friendship? Check out my latest sermon from Ecclesiastes, "I Have Called You Friends."
Many people want to start reading the Bible, but they are not sure where to begin. On this special mid-week episode of the Eric Roseberry Podcast, Eric sits down with Jeff Brewer (Pastor of Hope Fellowship in Lombard, IL) to answer the question, "How can I start reading the Bible on my own?"
Everyone wants to be happy. We spend most of our lives believing if we can find the right amount of success, wealth, or love, then we'll finally be satisfied. However, at the end of all of our searching, we can finally discover that Jesus stands ready and willing to give us everything we've been looking for.
There are plenty of ways we can try and find meaning and purpose in this life. In Ecclesiastes 2, Solomon looked for these things in entertainment, food, drink, art, beauty, wealth, and sex.

Everyone believes something at the core of who they are that impacts everything. In 1 Corinthians 15, Paul reminds the church that the truth driving followers of Jesus should be that Christ died for our sins and was raised from the dead. The resurrection gives us the hope that God is preparing something good for us in the future, and that hope can help us remain steadfast in the Christian faith when life gets difficult.
Almost all Christians agree that God has spoken to humanity through prophets, scripture, and ultimately Jesus. But does God still speak today? Should Christians expect to hear from God, and if they do, what should they do with those messages?
Join us for my latest sermon from 1 Corinthians. In this message, we look at the spiritual gift of prophecy.
