Paul uses the illustration of vessels in a house, some being used for honorable purposes, others for dishonorable. This illustration points to a truth in the church, that there are some bringing honor to God, but others who are bringing shame and reproach upon his name. Which one are we going to be? Paul describes how we must become vessels of honor in order to bring glory of God.
God’s grace is a wonderful gift. It’s important that we properly understand that grace, and not go to the extremes of cheapening the grace or constraining it. Join us as we study God’s grace together.
Using an outline given in the Truth for Today commentary on 1-2 Timothy and Titus, we spend our time in this lesson considering different attributes of God, as Paul describes them in this doxology.
Based on an article from Bro. Allen Webster in House to House/Heart to Heart, we consider how we can measure God’s love. Together, we consider the width, length, depth, and height of God’s love, and how we see those dimensions expressed in John 3:16
When so many things go wrong, it can be easy to give into fear. But the Bible reminds us, over and again, not to fear. Our God, in His Word, gives us many reasons that we should trust in Him, instead of giving in to fear.
On the First Sunday of each month, the Orangeburg Church of Christ hosts an abbreviated worship service, after which we sing for an extended period of time. On these Sundays, the lessons are shorter than usual sermons. In 2020, these first Sunday lessons are going to focus on passages from the Psalms. This week, we consider a lesson about trust i God from Psalm 4
Psalm 146:6 declares that our God, in whom we put our trust, is a God who keeps faith forever. He is a God who is always faithful and trustworthy. His promises will never come up short. Together, let’s study some of God’s promises, both conditional and unconditional, as well as some things that he didn’t promise.
Our awesome God is one who is never far from us. He is not constrained by space as we are, but is near to us wherever we go, in the good times and the bad.
God’s power is beyond our understanding, and even beyond our imagination. So long as it is consistent with nature and his purposes, there is nothing that God cannot do.
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.
