Daniel 3:1-30. We begin our Marriage and Family series with a message on choosing wisely. Daniel 3 illustrates that choosing wisely begins with having the priorities of our hearts set firmly.
2 Timothy 2:1-10. In Paul’s second letter to Timothy, Paul gives his marching orders to his young protege. He tells Timothy to share in suffering as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. Today, we discuss what that means and how to do it.
John 14:2-3. God makes many promises to those who follow Him. In the person of Jesus Christ, He promises that He is preparing a room for them and that He, Himself will be coming back to bring them there to be with Him. Why are we so slow to share this good news with those to whom this promise has not yet been made?
2 Corinthians 5:11-17. What are the practical implications that come from being an ambassador for Christ? How do we know if we are qualified for His service? Today, the qualifications are listed and the story of Jonah is reviewed to learn the effects of a believer’s response to their call to follow.
Matthew 28:18-20. The command to a disciple is to go with the intent of making more disciples. Today we break down this command to make disciples while we are encouraged by the Lord’s words about himself.
Matthew 28:18-20. The Great Commission is a familiar and often quoted command from the Bible as it should be. It is the command of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Disciples of Jesus are to go and make more disciples of Jesus. Today we deepen our understanding of what a disciple is so that we are prepared to take heed to this command.
2 Corinthians 5:17. When the gospel of Jesus Christ is received by faith it transforms the recipient. Those who believe in Christ become a new creation. Today we look at twelve gifts that come from being made new.
Romans 10:9-10. How can a sinner be saved? There must be an transformation of the evil heart within him. This transformation by grace through faith in the work of Jesus Christ. This inner transformation will lead to outward expressions and confessions of that faith. A sinner is saved by trusting in Jesus.
Ephesians 2:8-9. God has provided a way for sinners to be reconciled to Himself. We are reminded today that this way, His Son Jesus Christ, is given to us as a gift to be received by faith. There is no work that man can do to attain salvation. He simply must believe.
Romans 5:8. Our study this morning is put together to answer these three question about the verse: How does this verse prove God has love for us? How does this verse prove the greatness of the love God has for us? What does this love do for us?
Romans 6:23. Last week we learned that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. That is not news to any of us. We are ready enough to admit that. Today’s message is a little harder to swallow. But as we look at the big picture we see that it is absolutely necessary for us to hear the hard part of the Good News.
Romans 3:23. There are many ways that we can love our neighbor. There are many physical, emotional, and relational provisions that we can supply for our neighbor’s needs. All of these things are good, but they are temporal. At the forefront of our minds and hearts must be their greatest need. Today we learn that everyone’s greatest need is the same and it’s eternal. Sin has separated us from God. But Jesus has brought salvation!
Luke 10:25-37. Today we review the method of Love Listen Discern and Respond used by the Time to Revive team. This method is taught to the gathering before they go into the streets.
Before the method can be used properly there must be a compassion in our hearts for those who do not know the Lord. We review the story of the Good Samaritan in order to self assess our own walk and ask ourselves the question, “Are we proving to be neighbor?”
Eric uses this morning to review the method used by the Time to Revive team that joined the county in December. This method is not the only way to minister to our community, but it is a good one. After reviewing the method, Eric tells us where we are headed as a church to be equipped to go and make disciples.
Philippians. Bill Mills, who is our brother in Christ and partner in the ministry of the gospel, led Covenant Community Church in a gospel conference today. Bill leads the congregation through a three session study of the letter of Paul to the Philippians. Paul continues throughout the letter to point to the supreme worth of Jesus to be the bearer of the Good News! Listen to all three sessions below.
Today we conclude our spiritual examination series with a look at the gospel. We are reminded of seven images or pictures that the Bible describes for the person who has faith in Jesus Christ. Do you see yourself in each of these pictures?
As we conclude our spiritual examination series today, we consider the core biblical value of marriage. We will see the Bible has a very different view of marriage than the world does.
Today we consider a fifth core value: love. We are reminded from God’s Word that God is love and those who are God’s children must be characterized by love, by self-sacrificially serving others.
As we continue this time of spiritual examination, today we consider prayer. We are reminded of the link between God’s Word and prayer; all of the things that God’s Word reveals concerning what takes place when we pray. We are also reminded that God commands us to pray in a certain way and that through prayer we demonstrate our great dependency upon God.
We continue this time of spiritual examination by continuing to consider what God’s word should mean to us. The Bible, the very words of God, is our light in a dark and corrupt world and therefore, as a true disciple of Jesus, we must know God’s word and we must follow it.
