May The Peoples Praise You

My mouth will speak the praise of the LORD, and let all flesh bless his holy name forever and ever.Psalm 145:21 The redeemed have experienced the gift of salvation that God has provided through Jesus Christ and from that he has called us to worship Him and to share the good news with others. John Piper once said, “Missions exists because worship doesn’t. Worship is ultimate, not missions, because God is ultimate, not man. When this age is over, and…

John 20:19-23 for Gospel Groups October 22-28

Read the passages this week and think about these questions John 20:19-23 Luke 24:36-43   Why do you think Jesus says, “Peace be with you”? What are some other examples of when Jesus gave His peace? When have you needed the peace of Jesus? How did God’s peace help you? What do you think it means to make disciples? What are some steps a believer can take in order to live as a disciple who is sent by Jesus on…

Interpreting the Writings

The Writings section of the Old Testament is also referred to as the Wisdom Literature.  These books don’t fit naturally into the Law, History, or Prophets categories.  While these books are different, they each artistically teach the wisdom in keeping God’s Law. In light of what is recorded in the Old Testament narratives, prescribed in the Law, reminded by the prophets, will God’s people be able to make wise decisions in life? Job: Testimonial Wisdom Job suffers not for his…

Senegal Mission Trip – March 2018

In September, 2016, Alton and David sat on the front porch of a man we will call “Adam” with his friend “Abdou”, in a village in Senegal, Africa.  “Adam” had asked us for a French Bible and we were finally able to deliver one to him.  As we sat and discussed the Gospel of John, both men seemed eager to listen and understand.  When we left them, we challenged “Adam” to read the Gospel of John, and then to discuss…

October Missions Prayer Newsletter

In This Issue, read about and pray for: Two young ladies who have just arrived and are settling in to serve God in Africa. A woman who received assistance to be able to live, AND a stronger focus on Who to live for. A young lady who is investing heavily in students, many of who are basically “anti-christian”, but are hearing about the love of our Savior. A youth group that has outgrown the apartment where they meet but they still…

The Bible in 271 Words

We are at Day 51 of our 100-Day Word Bible reading plan!  As we begin through the New Testament, I thought it would be wise to remember where we have been and what we are anticipating.  In the second sermon of this series, I preached a summary of the scriptural narrative to help give us context to what we were studying. I have preached through the narrative of the Bible in different ways in the past.  For “The Word” series…

His Mercy is More

We all walk in God’s mercy everyday. There are days that we forget how merciful God is toward us. Here is a new hymn we started singing in our services yesterday that helps us remember how merciful God is toward His people. Song Video   Lyric Video  

Luke 24:13-35 for Gospel Groups October 15-21

Read the passages this week and think about these questions Luke 24:13-35   Have you ever faced a time of confusion, distress, or sorrow? Have you ever know Jesus’ presence during a time like this? What else do these verses teach us about Jesus? Is the Old Testament still relevant for believers today? What are some ways the OT points to Jesus? Are you praying that the Holy Spirit would open up the Word of God to you? With whom…

Interpreting the Law

In our study of Hermeneutics, we come to one of the most difficult sections of Scripture to interpret – the Law. Oftentimes, New Testament believers go too far in relation to the Law – either by expressing strict obedience to all types or by ignoring the commandments altogether as not applying to us.  We must find a healthy balance when it comes to interpreting this wonderful section of Scripture. Facts Pertaining to the Law The Old Testament contains 613 commandments.…
