The Proper Perspective

And when Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” Mark 2:5 Sometimes Christians lose their perspective on their relationship with God. This happens whenever things are not going right physically. We may pray to God to help heal our sickness or remove our burdens. We may ask him to give us more physical […]

Not Cleverly Devised Tales

  For we did not follow cleverly devised myths when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty. 2 Peter 1:16 It is an odd thing that people celebrate the death of a loved one. When looking back at great historical figures, people typically celebrate their birthday […]

God’s Great Grace

This week we dive deeper into God’s grace. Using Ephesians 2 and Romans 6 we look at what God’s grace is, why we should appreciate it, and how we obtain it.

Help My Unbelief

Immediately the father of the child cried out and said, “I believe; help my unbelief!” Mark 9:24 In the Bible, we are given many promises by God. We are promised salvation from our sins if we repent and are baptized (Acts 2:38). If we can overcome our sins, God will give us the crown of life (Revelation 2:10). Another promise […]

Praising God with Our Whole Being

“Bless the LORD, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name!” Psalm 103:1 There are times when we take the Lord’s Supper that it can become perfunctory. If we are honest with ourselves, some days we struggle to engage our minds, much less to reach down to the full depths of our soul. Yet David […]

The Reality of Sin

In this episode, we dive into the concept of sin. Our culture tends to excuse sin of all sorts, and wonder why God would be so judgmental as to enact the laws he has established. In this lesson, we look at the people of Israel committing a grave sin in the eyes of God. On the surface, and to the […]

The Appearance of Godliness

having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people. 2 Timothy 3:5 Organization has never been a strong suit of mine. This was incredibly obvious before I was married. Looking around my house, there was no system for where things belonged. Instead, everything had a temporary home. As a rule, the floor was the largest shelf in […]

What the Lord’s Supper Teaches Us

What the Lord’s Supper Teaches Us “For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age”  Titus 2:11-12 When we partake of the Lord’s Supper, it is valuable to focus on how we think. “Do this in remembrance of me” […]

God’s Great Glory

In today’s discussion, we look at Revelation 4 as an extension of our topic last week. Here we see another throne scene, but in this one, we have more details. We will discuss the glory of God in this passage and how we can learn to praise Him. It also helps provide perspective in times of trial. Finally, it helps […]

Sheep without a Shepherd

When he went ashore he saw a great crowd, and he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd. And he began to teach them many things. Mark 6:34 In Mark 6, Jesus has been teaching and healing people. His cousin, and fellow minister, John the Baptist was murdered by Herod. His disciples have returned from […]
