May 15 – Worth Our Allegiance

Scripture(s): Genesis 22; Mark 8:35-37; Philippians 3:7-8; Hebrews 11:13-19; Revelation 4:11 & 5:9-14

Who God is can be an academic discussion. It can be about information and even appreciation. Yet, in the Bible we see that those who really know Him understand God in another way. Who God is calls them to respond.

May 8 – God is the Greatest of All, the Real and the Possible (part 2)

Scripture(s): Psalm 90; 1 Chronicles 29; Jeremiah 32; Colossians 1; 2 Peter 1; Isaiah 46

As we think about who God is to us, it is important that we let who He is to us come from the Bible. It is important that we let the Bible speak to us about who He is so that our own misconceptions can be laid to rest. When we hear from God’s Word, we will know that God is the greatest of all beings – both real and possible.

April 24 – Why Be a Christian?

Scripture: Romans 8:1-9

Think for a moment to how you would finish this statement – I will be happy when… Perhaps our answer tells us more than just what makes us happy.  Perhaps it tells us why true joy is so hard to find.

Scripture: Romans 8:1-9

April 17 – A Real Hero Has Come

Scripture(s): 1 Corinthians 15:1-11

We celebrate the resurrection, not because it is fantastic, but because in the resurrection all the promises of Christ are realized. The resurrection makes Christ’s sacrifice more than mere martyrdom. The resurrection makes the cross a joy rather than simply a sacrifice. The resurrection makes our future secure.

April 10 – The Final Charge

Scripture(s): 1 Timothy 6:11-21

As Paul urges Timothy, God urges us to believe Him. Yes, He wants us to believe in Him. But He also wants to believe Him. He wants us to believe Him when He says that His way is life. He wants us to believe Him when He says all other ways will hurt and maim us. He wants us to stop chasing fruitless paths and discover the one true Way.

April 3 – The Seduction of Greed

(which is… This Life is the One that Matters)

Scripture(s): 1 Timothy 6:3-19; Luke 2:40-47; Ecclesiastes 5:10; Revelation 18:2-3; Proverbs 13:11; Proverbs 28:20, 22

We live in a world that has turned industry into a means to an end.  Instead of wanting to be productive, we want things.  Instead of real security and satisfaction, we settle for stuff.  God’s people must be careful of such seduction because it declares that God and His promises are not relevant.

March 20 – Our Everyday Witness

Scripture(s): 1 Timothy 6:1-2

When we think  about what the Bible says about work we probably think about being honest, hard-working, and punctual. Being an everyday example of Christ might be on the radar, but is it our reason for being a good employee? God invites us to not just be good at our jobs, he invites us to see those jobs through His eyes.

March 13 – Elders, Sin, and Caring about Truth

Scripture(s): 1 Timothy 5:17-25

There are two sides to a healthy church. There is the side of the leader who chases after Jesus. There is also the side of the average believer who also chases after Jesus. Both are necessary for the church to be truly healthy.

March 6 – Living Well Together as Family

Scripture(s): 1 Timothy 5:1-16

Although God uses Paul to set out some big picture ways for us to grow in Christ, He also uses Paul to address some very difficult and specific areas of Christian growth. These areas challenge us if we have come to think of the church as a club to which we belong. They challenge us to be a healthy family.

February 27 – Persistent Actions of Growth (part 2)

Scripture(s): 1 Timothy 4:11-16

In our passage today, Paul is not trying to build an argument FOR growing in godliness. Nor is Paul trying to discourage us from certain behaviors. He simply wants to describe for us what a person who is growing in godliness looks like. Our question, “Do we look like that person?”

February 20 – Persistent Actions of Growth

Scripture(s): 1 Timothy 4:11-16

In our passage today, Paul is not trying to build an argument FOR growing in godliness. Nor is Paul trying to discourage us from certain behaviors. He simply wants to describe for us what a person who is growing in godliness looks like. Our question, “Do we look like that person?”

February 13 – Growing on Purpose

Scripture(s): 1 Timothy 4:6-10

There is no secret formula for becoming a strong and healthy Christian. Becoming a mature Christian is not a spiritual gift that only some have. Spiritual growth is for every Christian who will respond to God’s call.

February 6 – Why Train to Be Godly?

Scripture(s): 1 Timothy 4:1-5

There are those who turn freedom into slavery to sin. This is the path of licentiousness. There are also those who turn righteousness into a slavery to rules. It doesn’t matter if we are a slave to sin or a slave to rules. Slavery is slavery. Neither path leads us to God.

January 30 – Why Who We Are Matters

Scripture(s): 1 Timothy 3:14-16

Pragmatism is directly tied to getting results. We feel the pressure to get results. We call it “the bottom line”. When we begin to believe that certain results are what God cares about, then we start pushing aside those things we think are secondary or unimportant.

January 23 – The Character of the Deacon

Scripture(s): 1 Timothy 3:8-13

A deacon’s job is not the most glamorous in the life of the church. They do not have positions of power.  They do not get glory. Instead, they call us to a higher calling. It is the calling of service. They should be everyday heroes.

January 16 – The Right Man for the Job

Scripture(s): 1 Timothy 3:1-7

Paul could have encouraged us to have leaders who had certain skills or giftedness. That’s not what he does. Paul encourages to pay attention to the type of people our leaders are. He does this because those who will truly lead well will be those character shows that they are truly chasing after Jesus.

January 9 – The Character that Prays

Scripture(s): 1 Timothy 2:8-15

Do you remember the Biblical admonition, “A man reaps what he sows?” Do we understand how that applies to our character? It is people of godly character who truly respond to God’s call to pray.

January 2 – Why Share Jesus?

John 3

Guest speaker, Al Pietsch, challenges us to heed the call to share Jesus. Why? Because He lives!

December 26 – The Struggles of those involved in Bringing us Jesus

Scripture(s): Focus – Luke 2:1-12; Matthew 1-2, Luke 1-2

Our lives are full of struggles.  It is easy when we think about the beauty of the nativity to forget that those people had struggles too.  Yet, we all know how we respond when God is doing a new thing among us.

December 19 – The Shadows of Christmas

Scripture(s): Luke 2:25-35; Matthew 2:16-18

When we are seeking God diligently, we are surprised by shadows. We read of the hope and the joy of the Christian life, and we can start to assume that the joy we are promised removes the struggles. That is happiness, not joy. The joy we are promised does not remove the struggles, it overcomes them. We even see it in the first Christmas.

December 12 – The Sacrifices of Mary

Scripture(s): Luke 1 26-40

Let us consider the cost Mary was willing to pay to be a part of God’s story.  Let us note her cost and then ask if we treat God with the same worth.

December 5 – Surprised by God’s Call

Scripture(s): Luke 1 5-25; 57-66

Do you think the parents of John the Baptist struggled like we do? Were they human?  Did they have doubts and struggles with God’s call on their life?  Let’s look and learn today about God’s working in their lives, and how they responded to Him.
