1 Peter 1:1 - Part 2

August 12, 2018

The Apostle Peter is opening up his address to some hurting people by reminding them of their Identity (Whose they are). Even though they are often rejected by the people that are around them, and live like exiles, they are the elect of God. When you embrace your identity in God and begin to realize Whose you are, your life will begin to reflect your identity more and more. Jesus, Paul, and Peter all meant for the doctrine of election to be a wonderful source of strength and comfort. And I hope that you can find that same strength and comfort in this doctrine today.

    1 Peter 1:1 - Part 1

    August 5, 2018

    As we approach the book of 1 Peter, we realize that the words come with authority. They are from an Apostle. and most importantly they have been inspired by God. We submit to God by submitting to His word, which has been given to us through the prophets and the Apostles. Even today, as we have reviewed the life of Peter, may we learn from his teaching and his example.

    What does God have to say about homosexuality? (Part 2)

    What does God have to say about homosexuality? (Part 2)

    The authority of God’s Word comes from God Himself. Scripture has been breathed out by God and given to us for our benefit, so that we may know how what truth is, that we may know what to believe, what not to believe, how to behave and how not to behave. The Bible is from God, therefore if we desire to know how God views an issue, like homosexuality, then we should look to His Word for the answer.

    If we, as Christians, approve of homosexuality, then we are:

    1. Misrepresenting God like the false prophets.
    2. Undermining the authority of the Word of God.
    3. Relabeling unrighteous behavior, righteous behavior.
    4. Closing the kingdom of heaven to homosexuals by leaving them in their sin.
    5. Acting without love by withholding the truth about repentance and salvation.

    What does God have to say about homosexuality? (Part 1)

    More and more we are having to face the issue of homosexuality and we, as Christians, the people that are known to represent God, need to make sure that what we believe regarding the issue of homosexuality rightly lines up with God’s Word, and we need to be better equipped to teach Biblical truth to others. Many Christians are unsure how they are supposed to think about this issue personally, and very confused when it comes to speaking to a homosexual in a loving, caring, and Biblically truthful manner. Everyone has an opinion on homosexuality, but it is our purpose today to put aside emotions, experiences, cultural relativism, and to see what God has to say about homosexuality.

    Series: Acts

    Acts Summary

    Luke records that what began thirty years earlier in Acts chapter 1 with 120 Jewish believers quickly growing into the thousands with Jews, then Samaritans, then Gentiles believing. The gospel was being spread all over the world. The gospel had arrived in Rome, which was the epicenter of the known world for power, trade, commerce, and idolatry, but now would become mission central for Paul. Even though he was still in chains, he was able to teach people about “the Lord Jesus Christ with all boldness and without hindrance” (v.31).

    What are we to take from the book of Acts? The command to witness, the content of our witness, and the commonality of all believers to witness.

    Series: Guest Sermon

    Ephesians 2:1-10

    This sermon was brought by Randy Cox. We must constantly grow in our understanding of the gospel, but we will never grow beyond our need for the gospel.

    Four Truths of the Gospel

    1. We are saved from God’s wrath.
    2. We are saved by God’s grace.
    3. We are saved for good works.
    4. We are saved to the praise of God’s glory.

    Acts 28:11-30

    1. Paul trusted that God would use the gospel to bring people to salvation.
    2. Paul proclaimed the gospel clearly.
    3. Paul proclaimed the gospel Biblically.
    4. Paul proclaimed the gospel immediately.
    5. Paul remained faithful to his calling through trials and tribulations.

    As we look at Paul’s life, it seems so holy and so gospel-focused that it seems strange and foreign to us. But it shouldn’t. May God raise up more men and women whose lives are committed to proclaiming the message of forgiveness of sins through Jesus Christ.

    Acts 28:1-10

    The people of Malta had been eyewitnesses to the horrible storm that had plagued Paul and the other passengers. They knew that the storm was a bad one and that it was amazing that anyone on the ship had survived. But now, after all of that, a deadly snake bites Paul. What are the odds of that? They assume that this was a sign that he was a murderer. Even though he had escaped death on the see, justice had still found him.

    This was a special time where God used supernatural signs and healings to verify that He approved of Paul and his Gospel proclamation. Luke does not go into detail, but can you imagine the stories that the other 275 passengers on the boat told as they loaded back up and went to Rome. “You would not believe what we witnessed on our trip! This prisoner named Paul...”

    Acts 27:1-44
    Series: Acts

    Acts 27:1-44

    Paul had been tried by the Sanhedrin, Felix, Festus, and Agrippa. Now, he is sent to the highest authority in the land, the Emperor (Caesar) of Rome. Rome is a long way from Caesarea. And it will prove to be a much longer journey than it was supposed to be.  In Acts 27, Luke records detail after detail of this trip. It reads like a chapter out of Moby Dick with a lot of details about boating, ports, and weather. One thing that will stick out is the amazing attention to detail that Luke puts into his record. At least 12 geographical locations are mentioned plus details about the wind and the storm. Even to this day, this chapter is one of the places that skeptics are amazed due to the perfectly precise details. As we look at Luke’s sea diary, you will gain even more assurance that the Bible is accurate and truthful down to the details. 
    We will also see Paul’s faith not falter, even in the midst of what appeared to be certain death. As Paul was told to have no fear because he was given assurance of his safe arrival, we too should strive to rest in our salvation. That is, we rest in the One who has saved us and His power to keep us safe until we arrive Home.
