God: Revealed

Children of the Promise

April 5, 2020

It’s a great feeling to be chosen! When we were on the playground as children it’s exciting to be chosen. On April 5, 2020 we will be challenged to live a transformed life according to who we are in Christ, the adopted children of God – recipients of God’s promise of mercy to all who actively believe in Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Please join us in reading Romans 9, in preparation for this message: Children of the Promise. Click on the image to listen. Click on the Facebook logo to watch.

More Than a Conqueror

March 29, 2020

We are living in uncertain times. At least, that’s what we are told from almost everyone around us. In this “uncertain time” there is something we can be certain of that should fill us with confidence to face the future. On March 29, 2020 we came to recognize the certainty of God’s love expressed through Christ. In Jesus, we are more than conquerors. Please join us in reading Romans 8, in preparation for this message: More Than a Conqueror. Click on the image to listen. Click on the Facebook logo to watch.

Suffering & Glory

March 15, 2020

Life isn’t easy, especially as Christians in a world that often doesn’t want to hear what God has done in our lives. Feeling the pressure of society to toe-the-line, many choose to hide their faith from those around them. Yet, Paul tells us that our present suffering won’t compare to our future glory. On March 15, 2020 we freed the Spirit to intercede in our lives according to God’s will, knowing that God works all things for the good of those who love him. Please join us in reading Romans 8, in preparation for this message: Suffering and Glory. Click on the image to listen.

Life through the Spirit

March 8, 2020

We sometimes wonder if the life we’re leading is all it’s cracked up to be. Often our lives are hectic and in turmoil. Yet, God tells us life doesn’t have to be that way. On March 8, 2020 we saw that a mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace, and we were challenged to live according to the Spirit who brings about our adoption as children of God.

Recognizing Sin

March 1, 2020

We often use “Paul’s struggle” in Romans chapter 7 as an excuse to fail. Yet, such a mentality doesn’t fit with what Paul has already said in his letter to the churches in Rome. Could it be that we have misunderstood Paul’s intention for what he wrote? On March 1, 2020 we were challenged to realize the power we have in Christ to continually put to death sin and live triumphantly in the Spirit. Please join us in reading Romans 7, in preparation for this message: Recognizing Sin. Click on the image to listen.

Slaves Set Free

February 23, 2020

The abolition of slavery is certainly something to be celebrated. Yet, set free physically, many of us are still enslaved to sin. On February 23, 2020 we were challenged to live as those who have been set free from sin – to be holy as those belonging to God. Please join us in reading Romans 6 & 7, in preparation for this message: Slaves Set Free. Click on the image to listen.

God’s grace, his passionate choice to save us in Christ is beyond our understanding. When we join Christ Jesus in his death, we also come alive with him to live a transformed life. On February 16, 2020 we were challenged to live a new life, set free from sin and death, alive to God to live a righteous life. Please join us in reading Romans 6, in preparation for this message: A New Life. Click on the image to listen.

One Righteous Act

February 2, 2020

Sin seems to reign in our world today. Even as those who claim to follow Jesus, we often live according to the desires of our own sinful selves. Yet, because of one righteous act, we are freed to live differently. On February 2, 2020 we learned to let God’s grace reign through righteousness to bring eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Please join us in reading Romans 5, in preparation for this message: One Righteous Act. Click on the image to listen.

Against All Hope

January 26, 2020

Abraham was old and Sarah’s womb was dead, yet Abraham believed God’s promise that his descendants would be more than could be numbered. Not by anything he had done, his faith was credited to him as righteousness. On January 26, 2020 we were challenged to live by faith, allowing God’s grace to transform our lives. Please join us in reading Romans 3 & 4, in preparation for this message: Against All Hope. Click on the image to listen.

Advantage

January 19, 2020

Many people put off making a decision for Christ, perhaps because they don’t recognize any advantage in this life of being a follower of Christ. What is the point of committing one’s entire life to Jesus as opposed to simply waiting until the end to make a decision for Christ? On January 19, 2020 we learned the importance of pursuing a relationship with God by living in His word according to His faithful promises. Please join us in reading Romans 2 & 3, in preparation for this message: Advantage. Click on the image to listen.

Indiscriminate

January 12, 2020

We have a tendency of comparing ourselves as Christians to those in the world. Such contrasts make us feel pretty good about ourselves. Yet, they can also cause us to think that we are good enough without a Savior. On January 12, 2020 we recognized that God doesn’t differentiate between people. Whether we are saved or lost, we are all in need of a Savior. Please join us in reading Romans 1 & 2, in preparation for this message: Indiscriminate. Click on the image to listen.

Not Ashamed

January 5, 2020

Witnessing is about revealing God. Paul says in Romans 1 that the gospel reveals the righteousness of God. But who is our witness revealing God to be to those around us? On January 5, 2020, and throughout this series of sermons, we were challenged to examine the gospel message to see the character of God, then unashamedly reveal him to those around us. Please join us in reading Romans 1, in preparation for this message: Not Ashamed. Click on the image to listen.
