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.
On this Mother’s Day there is a question posed in today’s passage from 2Kings chapter 4. There we find a woman in very dire circumstances. But as we will see, God was greater than her circumstances.
God is a good father who wants to bless us in every area of our lives. But like all good parents, He often must teach us about the repercussions of our disobedience to Him. It’s sometimes a tough lesson, but it’s always a necessary one.
Grace is a constant theme in the Bible, and it culminates in the New Testament with the coming of Jesus, but it is manifested from Genesis to Revelation. Grace is God choosing to bless us rather than curse us as our sin deserves. It is His benevolence to the undeserving. And when we operate in it, we need fear no weapon formed against us.
The resurrection of Jesus Christ is recorded in all four of the Gospels because it is foundation of the Christian life. Without it, we are of all men most miserable. Paul writes that apart from the resurrection our faith and message are in vain and pointless. This is the oxymoron of the Christian life: that we are dead, yet we live. Yet, it is not we that live, but it is Christ living in us. And as we’ll hear in today’s teaching, His life is the pathway to God’s truth.
There are a lot of arguments about what faith is and what it is not. But there’s no arguing that in today’s message from Joshua chapter 2, victory requires faith- Bible based faith that is.
