— Last Sunday's Sermons —
Too many Christians live isolated and alone in the midst of a church family. The Scriptures know nothing of such a life. Christians are called to humbly open up their lives to others, and Paul explains why in Philippians 3:17-21.
Does the Bible have anything to say about Marijuana? Yes, it does. Biblical principles are applied to show us that “getting high” is not just an external issue, but it is an issue of the heart.
The focus is on the ladies, looking at Peter’s helpful instructions on the character and conduct of godly women in 1 Peter 3:1-6. If you’re interested in strengthening your pursuit of God-honoring relationships, whether it’s marriage or any other relationship, you will want to hear this.
In Ephesians 5, we look at men’s and women’s roles, as defined by God Himself! Whether you are married, dating or single, you will be hugely encouraged as we consider God’s wisdom on these crucial topics. Be strengthened in your pursuit of God-honoring relationships.
Paul commands Timothy to preach the Word, and instead of motivating him with how easy it is, he reminds Timothy how dedicated he must be to preach biblically. The preaching God expects preachers to do is not the kind of preaching we often see today. God commands preaching and describes the content of preaching–the Word. Then Paul raises the stakes even higher by reminding Timothy of the dedication required for genuine, biblical preaching.
Chris Mueller will take us through key passages in Scripture, laying the biblical foundation for marriage. Marriage (and all other relationships) are created by God and we are to follow His blueprint so that we bring Him glory through those relationships.
Paul challenges Timothy with the serious importance of preaching God’s Word. The first indicator of a healthy church is the nature of its pulpit. This also affects parents as you seek to teach the Word to your children or disciple a student or impact a spouse with the truth. You and I need to hear just how important preaching is to God.
We are expositing 2 Timothy 3:16 to 17 on depending on the Word of God. The nature of God’s Word, the benefits of God’s Word, and the purpose of God’s Word demand our dependence on God’s Word. This is a life changer and a great new year blessing for all of us.
Paul teaches Timothy how to navigate through difficult times. Paul describes our times and challenges Timothy to remain resolute and to remember his roots in verses 13 to 15.
We will survey Matthew 2, describing the greatness of our Savior in becoming a man and proclaiming His Gospel.
We will survey these passages describing the greatness of our Savior in becoming a man and proclaim his GOSPEL
Paul reminds Timothy of his active, passive and godly example that was and continues to be so influential in Timothy’s life. Timothy needs to be reminded since, just as Paul was persecuted, so Timothy will be persecuted. And just as Paul had to be tough about truth, Timothy must be unbending on upholding apostolic truth.
Timothy is really struggling in Ephesus. Many didn’t believe the truth, but the few who did were confused and struggling with errant teachers. The church was tangled as to who and what to believe, so Paul teaches Timothy how to stand for truth in an age of error.
We continue in 2 Timothy with part two of “Sheep Don’t Hand with Goats, focusing on the character of those who are phony. Paul warns us to avoid this type of church attender like the plague. Paul gives guidelines, the Spirit calls for repentance, and Christ displays His love by helping you know the distinction between the real and the fake.
