The Gospel Centered Life – Philippians 1

The Gospel of Jesus Christ is the greatest news that has ever been heard.  It is central to the life of a Christian, and must be our focus in all that we do.  Paul appreciated how the Philippian church was involved in the spreading of the gospel, and he gives instruction to live as those who have been called by the gospel.

Disagree Without Being Disagreeable – Romans 14:13-23 (sermon audio)

We don’t have to agree on every single thing. Liberty is a gift that we all have, and we’re all free to exercise that gift.  However, when that liberty comes between brethren and causes problems for the church, something needs to be done about.  Thankfully, Romans gives us some guidance in how to live with each other, even when we may disagree.

The God Who Knows – Isaiah 40:28 (sermon audio)

We serve an awesome God! When we stop and we consider just how great our God is, it should leave us in awe, and we should be thankful for who our God is.  This morning we begin a series looking at several attributes of our God, and it is our prayer that by the end of it, we’ll have a great appreciation of our God.  In this lesson we consider that God is a God who knows. He knows all about us, what we do, what happens to us, and even why it happens.  And we should thank him for that.

What Did Jesus Teach About the Bible? – Matthew 5:17-18 (sermon audio)

If Jesus is God (and in recent lessons have concluded from evidence that He is), then He is perfectly moral, because God is perfectly moral.  If Jesus is perfectly moral, then He can speak no lies.  Since He cannot speak lies, anything that Jesus teaches is true.  Since the New Testament is historically reliable and accurately records the deeds and teachings of Jesus, then what it says about what Jesus teaches must be true.  So, examining teachings of Jesus recorded in the New Testament, we can examine what Jesus taught about the Bible, and have an understanding of whether or not the Bible is truly the Word of God.

The Builder of All Things is God – Hebrews 3:4 (sermon audio)

We serve a God who is infinitely powerful, infinitely knowledgeable, and infinitely loving.  Our awesome God created a universe for us to live in, and he created this race that we call humanity.  From that human race he has brought into the world his people, first the Jews who led to Christ, and now Christians, the citizens of Christ’s kingdom.  God wants all to be in his kingdom, and he desires that all would be saved.
