  • The Tragic Story of Absalom

    The Tragic Story of Absalom

    11/10/2020 Duración: 34min

    Imagine a young, handsome, energetic, ambitious, wealthy, powerful, and charismatic man. Would you want to be friends with someone like that? Would you want your daughter to marry someone like that? Absalom had all of these qualities. But he was also deceiving, hot-tempered and disrespectful. He was someone who went about achieving his goals using […]

  • Arm Yourself

    Arm Yourself

    04/10/2020 Duración: 27min

    Introduction Here in America, we’ve fought hard for our constitutional right to bear arms (the 2nd Amendment). You’ve probably seen bumper stickers, shirts, Facebook posts, and lawn signs focused on keeping our guns. And some people are more heavily armed than others. Remember when Peter once armed himself for Christ, back when he found a […]

  • Submit Yourself

    Submit Yourself

    04/10/2020 Duración: 32min

    Introduction There’s two things you’re not supposed to talk about, and this morning, we’re going to cover both — politics and religion! Not because we’re coming up on an election, but because it’s where Peter goes next in his first letter that we’ve been studying together. But his take on the topic may seem radical […]

  • Complete In Christ

    Complete In Christ

    27/09/2020 Duración: 36min

    Those who are in Christ are recipients of great spiritual blessings from God (Ephesians 1:7). It is these blessings that the gospel writers tend to focus more on than the material. Consider the teaching of Paul in Colossians 2:8-10. Verse 8 – There are deceivers and false teachers out there who are trying to lead […]

  • Remember Lot’s Wife

    Remember Lot’s Wife

    20/09/2020 Duración: 35min

    Luke 17:32 is a short but interesting verse. In it, the Lord urges us to “remember Lot’s wife.” The story of Lot and his wife is found in Genesis 19. Lot was the nephew of Abraham. He also lived in the wicked city of Sodom. God was going to destroy the cities of Sodom and […]

  • Parables About the Kingdom

    Parables About the Kingdom

    20/09/2020 Duración: 28min

    Matthew 13 introduces us to Jesus’ famous teaching method of using parables. Jesus gives seven parables in this chapter. A parable is a story that is true to life, but it is designed to teach something spiritual.  There are several reasons why Jesus often taught in parables. Jesus told many famous parables during His time […]

  • Five Truths About the Truth

    Five Truths About the Truth

    13/09/2020 Duración: 36min

    In John 18:38, while interrogating Jesus, Pilate asked, “What is truth?” I wonder why Pilate asked this question to the Lord. Regardless, this is still a relevant question. We currently live in a society where there are virtually no absolutes (especially no moral and religious absolutes). Haven’t you noticed that? Jesus taught that religious and […]

  • Lessons From a Foolish Decision

    Lessons From a Foolish Decision

    13/09/2020 Duración: 28min

    Read 1 Kings 12:1-20. King Rehoboam has reached a point in his life where he has to make a critical decision. He has to make a decision that will not only affect his life but it would also affect the lives of the entire nation of Israel. What will he do? Observations After ascending to […]

  • The Greatest Servant

    The Greatest Servant

    06/09/2020 Duración: 37min

    The purpose of the life of a disciple is to be like Jesus. It is to follow in His footsteps. Probably the most significant thing that can be said about Jesus’ life is that He was a servant (Mark 10:42-45).  He calls us to be servants as well (John 13:12-17). Are we doing that? Jesus […]

  • What Would You Exchange for Your Inheritance?

    What Would You Exchange for Your Inheritance?

    06/09/2020 Duración: 31min

    In 1989 the Minnesota Vikings traded five players from their current roster, and six future draft picks to the Dallas Cowboys for running back Hershel Walker. They thought Walker was the missing piece for their Super Bowl run, but they were sadly mistaken. Not only did Walker play poorly during his time in Minnesota, but […]

  • Jailhouse Conversion

    Jailhouse Conversion

    30/08/2020 Duración: 34min

    In Acts 16:16-24, we read about two preachers (Paul and Silas) being thrown in jail because their work gets in the way of corrupt men making money. Thankfully, their story does not end here. The event that follows is an amazing turn of events! In Acts 16:25-30, Luke tells us about the conversion of the […]

  • Unusual Conversions

    Unusual Conversions

    23/08/2020 Duración: 42min

    Before ascending to heaven, Jesus gave His people the mission of preaching the gospel to the world (Matthew 28:19-20). Acts shows us when and how they carried out the Lord’s marching orders! The gospel is first preached in Jerusalem (Acts 2:1-38). Three thousand people are baptized and added to the church (Acts 2:41). The church […]

  • The Story of Acts

    The Story of Acts

    16/08/2020 Duración: 38min

    This week we will begin a six-week journey through the book of Acts. Acts is about the work of Jesus continuing through His people. It is about disciples carrying out the great commission after the Lord had ascended to heaven (Matthew 28:18-20; Mark 16:15-16; Luke 24:44-47). The thesis of the book is Acts 1:8. The […]

  • Consider Your Ways

    Consider Your Ways

    09/08/2020 Duración: 36min

    It was a prophet of God who said the words above. This prophet said these words to the people of Israel when God was very angry with them. This prophet was named Haggai. He went preaching to the people of Israel in about 520 B.C. (about 15 years after Israel had been released from Babylonian […]

  • The Rich Man and Lazarus

    The Rich Man and Lazarus

    02/08/2020 Duración: 34min

    One of the great stories told by Jesus is that of the Rich Man and Lazarus. Some see this story as a parable. Others see it as the retelling of a real-life event. Regardless, the lessons Jesus is trying to convey are still there. Consider three powerful lessons to be learned from this story (Luke […]

    By Faith I Watched You Die

    19/07/2020 Duración: 37min

    The death of Jesus is both the darkest and brightest moment in the history of the world. It is an event that was witnessed by disciples, soldiers, and enemies of Jesus (John 19:16-30; Mark 15:31-32). It is also an event that we are watched occur by faith. While we are 2,000 years removed from the […]

  • Is It From Heaven or Men?

    Is It From Heaven or Men?

    12/07/2020 Duración: 37min

    In Matthew 21:23-27, we find Jesus’ authority being called into question by the chief priests and elders of Israel. Notice a few interesting things. These men recognized the need for religious authority. Jesus did not casually brush their question aside. Instead, He countered their question about authority with one of His own. His question had […]
