This past Sunday morning, we continued in our “Real Life. Real Gospel.” series by studying 2 Peter 2:10-22. As Peter continues to encourage the churches, he takes time to give a real picture of what false teachers are really like. We discover in these verses that they are pride-filled, animalistic and covetous. As a result, Christians must take time to know what they believe and why they believe it.
In the evening service, we began a new series talking about the value of the Bible and why we ought to meditate on and memorize it.
“Returning to Vomit” – 2 Peter 2:10-22
“Meditating and Murmuring on God’s Word”- Psalm 119:9-16
From April 7 – May 5, we went through a five-week sermon series that was based on Acts 2:42. In the morning services, we focused on answering questions like, “What does this mean?”, “Why is this important?” In the evening services, the messages were directed towards answering the question, “How do I live this out?”
Take time to dig deeply in God’s Word as you listen to these sermons. Also, feel free to download the manuscripts to get the biblical cross-references. In all of this, it is our hope that you, with God’s church, will see the glory of God in Christ to even greater degrees.
The following is the breakdown of topics:
April 14th – Morning: The Apostle’s Teaching; Evening: How to Continue Steadfastly in the Apostle’s Teaching
May 5th – Morning: Breaking of Bread; Evening: How to Continue Steadfastly in the Breaking of Bread
Almost every person who knows their Bible will turn to the psalms in times of trouble. Whenever a person does not know where to study, many times they will turn to the psalms. But, do we really understand them? What is the ultimate point and how can our hearts grow in knowing more about God and His ways through the psalms?
In this devotional, you will be able to mine more of the depths of the first ten psalms – seeing the saving grace of God as it points to Jesus. Utilize this for personal devotions or simply read and be edified. You can download the .pdf version here. If you have a smart device, this .pdf can be placed easily into your iBooks app.
Do you know why you believe what you believe? Do you want to gain a better understanding of the vital truths of Scripture?
