This week we are looking at one of the most popular chapters in the Bible. I Corinthians 13. We know it as the great love chapter, and though we know what it has to say most people simply don’t understand what this Godly love is. We have been given the gift of God’s love through Jesus our Lord and Savior. We need to learn to let His love flow through us.
This week we will focus on the instruction given to the church on the observance of the Lord’s Supper. As Paul writes to the church in Corinth he rebukes them for ignoring the purpose and preparation that is required to honor the Lord with our lives and in His church. Our worship should unify our service and fill our lives with thanksgiving for the sacrifice of Jesus.
This weeks message is from I Cor. 15 and is titled Resurrection Realities. In this passage Paul speaks of the historical realities of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. He point to the hundreds of people that witness the resurrected Lord Jesus who were still alive to give testimony and witness to this fact. Because he has risen we have a blessed hope.
This week we come to chapters 9 and 10 in the first letter to the church at Corinth. Through these first chapters Paul, under the leadership of the Holy Spirit of God, has encouraged us to glorify God, in our Salvation, in our relationships with Brothers and Sister in His Church, in our bodies, and in our Marriage or Singleness. Now the message moves to glorifying God in and through relationships with those around us who have not come to Christ. For these, we are to build redemptive relationships by building bridges of love.
This week we continue to turn the pages of these wonderful love letters from God. As we read from chapter seven Paul begins to answer a question the the Corinthian believers have asked him. “To marry or not to marry, that is the question,” that might have been a good title for the sermon as well. In this passage we will discover what it means to keep the commitments that we have made.
This is our second Sunday and first full week of our adventure into 1 & 2 Corinthians.
This morning message this week is titled Glorifying God. We were created for this purpose and in this message we will be reminded that what we do and say can distort our ability to bring God glory. The truth is that we are often distracted and deceived by the world into wrong thinking about the value of our lives. God’s word reminds us that He so highly valued us that He payed a high price for our redemption.
This week we launch our new series: Love Letters.
This weeks message is titled "United in Christ.” Begin in chapter one verse 10 Paul gets to the heart of the issue to this and every church when he asks the question, Is Christ divided? The reader must realize that, if we are in Christ, then we cannot live or act like there are divisions between those of us who are called by His name. This is a challenging true and we are going to explore its meaning together.
This Sunday’s message, You’ve Got Mail," will be an introduction to our upcoming 13 week Bible Adventure in the books of 1&2 Corinthians. The series title is Love Letters. In this weeks we are going to bring together our Sunday morning evening and Wednesday night messages in addition to our Small group sessions and daily bible readings. I believe that this will be an exciting time as our family is working through these wonderful letters of truth and love.
This will be the last week in the series Vision & Victory.
The message this week is from Joshua 24. In this passage we hear Joshua ongoing faithful commitment to the service of the Lord. But we are also looking at the end of Joshuas life. He has remained faithful and God has wonderfully blessed him. Their is wonderful blessing in a faithful life. But this morning we are going to consider what is required to live the faithful life.
This week we will read from Joshua chapters 5 and 6 which focus on the story of Jericho. For many it is a familiar story because it is so dramatic. In truth it is a story of humble faith. Both Joshua and the people of Israel were called upon to humbly and quietly walk around the city for seven days. God was teaching His people to trust Him and to not lean on their own ideas. It is a teaching that we need to consider for our walk with Christ.
