It’s never a good thing when something is missing- especially in our lives. And when we decide to put our lives together rather than allowing God to order our steps, we’re not going to be our best and reach our full potential. We’re continuing in 1 Thessalonians chapter 4.
As we begin 1 Thessalonians chapter 4, we find a solemn call: a call to sanctification. We have been set apart for a particular purpose, a peculiar purpose and a permanent purpose. Get your Bibles and join in for today’s teaching.
We’re continuing our study in 1 Thessalonians, where a theme is quickly developing. It’s about hope, love and serving God by serving others. When we operate in faith it encourages others to do the same.
Today we start a new series in the Book of 1 Thessalonians. Here in chapter one Paul reminds them and us that our lives should cause others to be thankful.
Today’s teaching can be a bitter pill to swallow, but swallow we must. Challenge, exhortation and correction can be hard to handle, but the end is often transformative. God uses each of these as tools in His hands to make us more like Him. We’re still in the book of 1 Thessalonians.
Today we start a new series which takes us to Paul’s first letter to the saints at Thessalonica. Paul wants them and us to know that our lives should be a reflection of the love of God. Just as the moon reflects the rays of the sun, we as believers should reflect the love of the Son.
The Word of God has much to say about the power of the tongue. It’s a little member but it can cause big problems! As we continue to look at the themes found in the book of proverbs, we find that controlling the tongue is a wise thing to do. But it can only be done with God’s help.
Today we continue our trek through some of the themes found in the Book of Proverbs. This book contains a wealth of wisdom, and in today’s teaching we look at the trait of generosity, and the wisdom of those who operate therein.
In today’s teaching we learn what it means to “Fear the Lord.” The Bible uses the word fear at least 300 times in reference to God, so it’s important to understand what it is. Fearing God keeps us from caving in to our sinful inclinations. Join us as we continue our journey through the wisdom of Proverbs.
Living with integrity in a world where the corrupt seem favored is challenging. But as believers we are called to be like Jesus. It is by God's power that we become increasingly people of integrity. We are called to obey God and, in so doing, to be people of uncompromised morality. Today we continue our trek through the themes in Proverbs.
Today’s teaching contains God’s prescription for reconciliation and restoration of our relationship with Him. What God asked Hosea to do is an example to all of us. Open your Bibles to Hosea chapter 6 and follow along.
For some today’s message will hard to hear. For others it will be a plea to repentance. For all of us it will be a wake-up call. We’re in Hosea chapter 2.
Today we continue our series from the Book of Hosea which contains one of the great love stories in the Bible. In it, God uses the prophet to demonstrate to His people the patience and endurance of His love for them- and for us.
Today’s message from Hosea chapter 11 continues the theme we started last week, “Patient Love.” It’s the kind of love God has for us, and the kind He expects us to have for others. It’s not always easy, but with God, all things are possible.
God told the prophet Jeremiah, “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you; Before you were born, I sanctified you.” And in today’s message God gives Hosea the same message about His love. It’s a perfect love for an imperfect people.
