The Old Testament isn’t old by any means! As we press on in our study we’ll cover the Book of 1 Samuel today, focusing on the opening story of this narrative portion of the Bible. An amazing woman, Hannah, is the focus of chapter one and she represents everyone who has ever found that comparison between people can be a harsh reality. God shows us how to handle this all too common situation through Hannah’s story.
It’s Resurrection Sunday!
But like the early disciples and much of today’s world, it seems that few understand what His Resurrection means. Today’s message explains the meaning of Jesus’ Resurrection from the dead and gives an opportunity to make new life the theme of your present life.
Today we move on to the Book of Joshua! In the first eight chapters of this amazing record we find that a new man is leading the nation of Israel: Joshua. He was Moses’ assistant for many years, but now that Moses is gone, he must take the lead. And he learns, and we learn, that what you cannot righteously run away from, will define who you are.
Today we continue on in our study of the Old Testament, this week covering the entire book of Deuteronomy! As we’ve discovered in previous weeks, there are overall themes in these large books and today is no exception. Deuteronomy is all about large life transitions. We all go through them, but we don’t all go through them smoothly. Today we find the keys to a successful transition, no matter where or when it occurs in life.
We’re pressing on in our study of the Old Testament and this week’s message is the Book of Numbers. Yes, the whole book! Actually we’re discovering Numbers’ powerful theme and understanding that God is so gracious in His dealings with mankind at every stage of history. And the references to the Lord Jesus; they’re everywhere in this book!
We return to a rather long message series today, “The Old Testament isn’t Old.” This particular sermon brings us to the book of Exodus and the Ten Commandments. Now before you get all negative about them, we learn today that the framework and basis of God’s Law is actually love. You’ll find the answer to yours and society’s ills in what we talk about today.
Strategies to Stay Free Galatians 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage. This verse tells us something that we all understand. Even though we’ve been set free in Christ, we can be easily entangled in a yoke […]
What do we think of when we hear the word “freedom”? Today and next two weeks, we are going to talk about Freedom in Christ. Romans 8.1-2 says: There is a freedom in Christ available to everyone in Christ. The characteristic of those in Christ is they don’t walk according to the flesh, but in […]
Today we answer the question of “What Guides Us” as we set out on 2017. We’ll explore five verses of Proverbs 30 and find that God has set some strong lessons in the behaviors of some rather small creatures.
Everyone knows the “what” of Christmas. Mary and Joseph, the Innkeeper, the manger and the birth of Jesus, plus a whole lot of other facts. But the “why” of Christmas isn’t as well known. Why did God send His “only Begotten Son” to Planet Earth as a baby? That’s the question this message answers for Christmas Eve.
