1 Thessalonians 3. We are challenged today to think about and possibly come to a better understanding of what the term “missions” actually means. Jonathan shares the pattern of Paul’s missionary journeys in the first century, and uses this chapter from Paul’s letter to the Thessalonians to reveal the heart and drive behind the mission of God.
2 Timothy. In light of the recent events of unrest taking place in the nation, we take a break from our study on the psalms to take a look at 2 Timothy. We are given the setting in which the letter was written, then we read through the letter, and are given application questions to help us think through how we, as Christians, should respond to not only these currents events but all suffering.
Psalm 2. In today’s psalm David uses an episode in his life to depict how God’s plan was working in his present setting and, whether David knew it or not, the psalm also sheds light on a pattern of God’s plan that continued into the time of Jesus’ incarnation and will be continued in His second coming.
Psalm 120. The psalmist is grappling with what to with people around him that are slandering and attacking him with their words. He cries out to God, receives his answer, and is left frustrated.
John 21:1-14 John continues to draw his readers’ focus towards Jesus Christ, the risen Lord. The resurrected Jesus reveals himself to his disciples for a third time while they are fishing in Galilee. They are left with irrefutable evidence. What makes you think that you have eternal life?
In today’s study of John 17, we take an in-depth look at Jesus’ prayer before He and the disciples cross the valley to head into the garden where He will be betrayed. We study what he requests and who he prays for.
Today we pick up where we left off in our study of John. Jesus and his disciples are coming to the conclusion of their time together in the upper room. Jesus uses these final minutes with His own to help them discover more about their love and obedience for him and the blessings that flow from those things. And we do the same in our study of the words He shares.
After washing the disciples’ feet, Jesus moves from serving his own to preparing them for the betrayal that was about to take place. John 13:18-38 teaches us that Jesus actually sets the course of his betrayal into motion.
Jesus continues to preach to the Pharisees and other onlookers after healing the man born blind. Like a good shepherd Jesus offers protection and provision for his sheep, his people. He is the only source of this protection and provision.
Sorry, no audio for this sermon
In today’s passage we continue to see confusion towards the words that Jesus speaks. We learn more on what the Feast of Booths (Tents) was a demonstration of, which helps us understand how profound Jesus statement of “if anyone thirst, let him come to me and drink.”
