  • Faith and Family: Family By Faith (Week 3)

    26/09/2021 Duración: 43min

    Join a Concordia Group! We will often speak of our “friends and family.” There are some friends who are like family (Proverbs 18:24). Paul talks about how we are part of Christ’s family by faith in Galatians 3. When our own family fails us, we have a larger family that extends through space and time.

  • Faith and Family: Family Outside Faith (Week 2)

    19/09/2021 Duración: 39min

    A family apart from faith can attempt some spectacular things, as does the human family in Genesis 11 when they build the tower of Babel. But our success will only be temporary. Each family must ask: what is most important?

  • Faith and Family: White Picket Fence (Week 1)

    12/09/2021 Duración: 32min

    When God created Adam and Eve, He created history’s first family. He also placed them in an idyllic setting. Their yard was perfect. But Adam and Eve’s sin stained not only their family, but the whole human family. The white picket fence was replaced by a flaming sword to keep Adam and Eve out of the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3:24). But in the middle of this mess, God promises a descendant who will restore their family. What our family needs most of all is not a white picket fence, but a cross.

  • Work That Works

    05/09/2021 Duración: 31min

    When God is putting forth plans for the building of the tabernacle, He gives people the talents to do the work He needs. God has given us talents, too. How we steward our talents will guide how we feel about our work. Work can be a burden. But when we steward our talents well, work can also be a gift.

  • Deuteronomy: A Lasting Legacy (Week 12)

    29/08/2021 Duración: 38min

    Moses dies before Israel enters the Promised Land. But Moses leaves a lasting legacy. He had a special, close relationship with God that ultimately foreshadows Christ’s perfect relationship with God.

  • Deuteronomy: Making a Covenant (Week 11)

    22/08/2021 Duración: 36min

    "Covenant" is a word we hear in church, but we don't use it in many other places. Yet, this word is foundational to what it means to have a relationship with God and, when we understand it, can change our relationships with others for the better.

  • Deuteronomy: Blessing in Obedience (Week 10)

    15/08/2021 Duración: 40min

    As God establishes a covenant with Israel, He expects them to obey the stipulations of His covenant. Obedience leads to blessings. History, however, reminds us that the Israelites do not obey this covenant. This is why God must establish a new covenant in Christ.

  • Deuteronomy: Working Through War (Week 9)

    08/08/2021 Duración: 39min

    One of the most common questions that people ask about the Old Testament has to do with the violent stories in it. In this section, God lays down some rules of engagement for war. We see that God is not bloodthirsty, but careful and thoughtful and uses battle not as a first, but as a last, resort.

  • Deuteronomy: Leading Wisely (Week 8)

    01/08/2021 Duración: 42min

    God forecasts that the Israelites will eventually cry out for a king to lead them, which they do (1 Samuel 8:4-21). In this section, God reminds the people that any leader they have should be led first by God and His Word. A leader is at his best when he first follows the Lord.

  • Deuteronomy: Practicing Generosity (Week 7)

    25/07/2021 Duración: 28min

    God blesses the Israelites bountifully. But God also expects the Israelites to use their bountiful blessing to bless others. Israel’s generosity is to extend both to people to whom they are close and to people who are outside their social circles and national identity.

  • Deuteronomy: One God (Week 6)

    18/07/2021 Duración: 34min

    The ancient Israelites lived as monotheists in a polytheistic society. Anything that takes their attention away from the one, true God is spiritually dangerous. In this section, Moses instructs the people how to discern true religion from false religion.

  • Deuteronomy: God and Bounty (Week 5)

    11/07/2021 Duración: 35min

    Moses tells the Israelites that God will bountifully bless them material. With such bountiful blessing, however, comes the temptation to boast in what you have received and treat it as though you have earned it. Moses reminds the Israelites to remember that what they have are divine gifts of grace and not things they earn.

  • Deuteronomy: Love is the Key (Week 4)

    04/07/2021 Duración: 28min

    All of God’s commandments can be summarized in a single word: love. God’s commandments show us how to love Him and how to show His love to others. Indeed, God gives His commandments to us not out of harshness, but out of love. When we understand this, we can follow His commandments joyfully instead of begrudgingly.

  • Deuteronomy: A Needed Mediator (Week 3)

    27/06/2021 Duración: 32min

    Even as God was conceived of as near, as we discussed last weekend, the Israelites still feared the Lord and so they asked Moses to be their mediator. Ultimately, Moses fell short as a mediator because of his sin. This points to our need for a perfect mediator, given to us in Christ.

  • Deuteronomy: A Special Relationship (Week 2)

    20/06/2021 Duración: 33min

    God had a unique relationship with Israel. Whereas most religions conceived of divinities as distant and detached, Israel had a God who was near to them and heard their prayers. God’s nearness is ultimately confirmed and fulfilled when God comes near to us in Christ. On Father’s Day, we celebrate how Christ brings the Father near!

  • Deuteronomy: Learning from Mistakes (Week 1)

    13/06/2021 Duración: 41min

    In order to do well in the future, we need to learn lessons from our past – especially from our past mistakes. As Deuteronomy opens, Moses calls to mind some of the Israelites’ mistakes during their wilderness wanderings and encourages them to follow God into their future.

  • Overwhelmed... by Anxiety (Week 4)

    06/06/2021 Duración: 41min

    There is no shortage of anxiety about the problems we face – be those personal or cultural problems. Jehoshaphat, as a ruler in ancient Israel, faced an enemy that brought him great anxiety. But even in his anxiety, he turned to the Lord.

  • Overwhelmed... by Grief (Week 3)

    30/05/2021 Duración: 35min

    As we commemorate Memorial Day, we remember those who have given their lives while serving in our nation’s Armed Forces. The loss of life always brings with it grief. But, as Paul says, because of Christ, we do not grieve without hope.

  • Overwhelmed... by Depression (Week 2)

    23/05/2021 Duración: 41min

    The superscript of this psalm indicates it was written by “Heman, son of Korah.” This ancient Israelite honestly processes and records his depression. Along the way, he gives voice not only to what we may feel, but to where we can turn.

  • Overwhelmed... by Conflict (Week 1)
