How Should We Reflect the First Coming of Christ? (Hebrews 2:9-18)

Christmas should not be focused on ourselves, on gifts, on lights, or anything else. These practices may not be wrong, but do they distract from the actual message of Christmas? Whatever our “Christmas practices” and our year-around lifestyle are, Hebrews 2 indicates that should emphasize these five essential facts about Jesus’ first coming.

Timeline of Truth: Jonathan, the Compromising Levite: Micah and Jonathan (Judges 17)

Monday, March 11th, 2019

The mindset of the children of Israel during the time of the Judges was “everyone did what was right in his own eyes.”  Though the story of Micah and a certain Levite we see the dangers of ignoring God’s word and choosing to live by one’s own “wisdom.”  We need to learn that God’s ways are the way a Christian ought to live and ignoring His instructions only bring trouble and confusion.

Jesus Teaches and Warns About His Second Coming (Luke 17:20-37)

Tuesday, May 8th, 2018

Jesus Teaches and Warns About His Second Coming (Luke 17:20-37)

Jesus answers a question of the Pharisees about the timing of the kingdom of God and then teaches and warns the disciples regarding his Second Coming. Jesus warns His disciples about what to look for when He returns, and how to avoid false reports of His return. Jesus likens the time of His Second Coming to the days of Noah and to the days of Lot. What does this mean, and when will this happen? How will this encourage us to share the Gospel with others? Understand, everyone will know the real Jesus when He returns to earth a second time.

Marriage does not exist for just the benefit of the husband and wife. Marriage exists, in part, to picture and illustrate Jesus Christ’s love for the Church, and the Church’s submitting to the loving leadership of Jesus Christ.

Timeline of Truth: Command #2 – You Shall Not Make a Carved Image (Exodus 20:4-6)

Sunday, May 25th, 2014

The idea of no carved image brings the idea of not making God into something we want or design. We are not to seek to re-define God as something created, or worship something created rather than the One who has created everything.

Timeline of Truth: Command #1 – You Shall Have No Other Gods Before Me (Exodus 20:1-3)

Sunday, May 18th, 2014

“You shall have no other gods before me” does NOT mean we can have other gods as long as God is first. It means that we cannot have any other gods anywhere in the presence of God. Nothing is to compete with God as the center and controller of our lives.
