"...anyone who has ever had to trash out a house before a big move knows that we don’t really want someone else cleaning out our stuff – first off, because we know that our closets and drawers are full of embarrassing things; and secondly, because there are a few things that we want to keep for our own reasons, that others wouldn’t understand. John is telling God’s people to get busy trashing out their own digs, or Messiah is going to come and do it for them and it won’t be pleasant."
Things are not always as they appear. In his Epistle, John wrote:2 John 7-8 “For many deceivers have gone out into the world who do not confess Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. 8 Look to yourselves, that we do not lose those things we worked for, but that we may receive a full reward.” Let us not be deceived by human logic and charismatic charm. Let us always seek the truth from God’s Word and remain faithful until the end of the age.
Dave continues his series from Luke, contrasting Jesus and Satan. The verses demand a verdict on the life of Jesus.
How do you know if you are a thankful person? Biblical thankfulness is not just a one time event, but a continual feast of contentment in our hearts. In this message, Pastor Jeremy identifies three important realities that relate to thankfulness in our lives: 1)The Importance of Thanksgiving, 2) The Opposite of Thanksgiving, and 3)The Hope for Thanksgiving in our Lives
Becoming a Christian will make you enemies: Jesus was hated and rejected, and Christians will be, too. Our enemies are 3-fold: those who keep us from speaking the gospel, the devil, and our own desires which lead us away from Jesus. But Christians know we are destined for this. Standing fast is a matter of faith - and that faith allows us to continue to love those who hate or disagree with us, fend off the attacks of Satan, and overcome temptation.
In the world, politics can start a fight. Unfortunately, politics can also start fights (sometimes we prefer to call them "debates") among those who claim to be a part of the Kingdom of God. What are we to do about this? Well, since all Christians claim the Bible to be authoritative, perhaps looking at some foundational truths will be helpful. While this sounds simple, it is often overlooked or assumed. With that in mind, and building upon last week's reality that The Church is by default political, this week we will look at some undeniable - and biblical - truths when it comes to politics. Also, please download or view the "notes" of this sermon as well; it contains many of the verses mentioned and will help you to follow the flow of this teaching/sermon. As always, if you are blessed by this - please pass it along. If you have questions, would like some clarification, or if this sparks some thoughts not covered in the sermon itself (of which there are many), please let me know. The Church cannot afford to not be political (and yes, I used a double-negative) - after all, God shows us the "good news" (gospel) is political.
"You are being tempted right now, and so am I." These are the words of Russ Moore, and they sound a call to understand how temptation works and how we can triumph over it in Christ. Our triumph will only be found in Jesus, the true and better Adam, the true and better Israel.
