November 10 – More Powers of Love

Scripture(s): 1 John 3:17-24

God’s love can overwhelm us. We feel unworthy. We must understand that this great love is just God’s gift to us. Living in this love is not just something in which we are involved. The love of God is intended to fundamentally change who we are.

November 3 – Can I Really Study My Own Bible?

Bible study is not difficult as we might think. However, it does take two things: care and time. What it requires is that we keep in mind a few straightforward principles.

October 27 – What is Sin?

Scripture(s): James 1:13-15 (and assorted scriptures)

October 20 – Living Water, Bread of Life

Scripture(s): John 4:7-15; 6:47-58; 10:1-15, 27-28 

God is so big, we might feel lost in the shuffle. Jesus gives us three teachings that declare we won’t get lost.  He is the One who will never leave, never forsake, and never fail.  He truly loves us.

October 13 – The Glory of Prophecy (Part 2)

Scripture(s): 2 Peter 3:3-15 (and assorted verses)

There are many ways to do an overview of prophecy. You can do a timeline. You can focus on end times prophecy. Our purpose today is to answer a specific question: Why does God tell us the future anyway? In answering that question we will discover the glory of prophecy and what it is supposed to do in us.

October 6 – The Glory of Prophecy

Scripture(s): 2 Peter 3:3-15 (and assorted verses)

When we see how much God has told us we discover two glorious truths. First, we see that God has always kept His Word. He does not tell us things that do not come to pass. Second, we can face the future with the calm assurance that God will do what He has said He will do.

September 29 – Special Service of prayer for our church family

(No recording)

September 22 – Biblical Love Calls us Higher

Scripture(s): 1 John 3:11-16

What is so convicting?  Love. Why?  Love calls the believer to be more. This calling either comfort us because we say yes or convicts us because we have rejected it.  What about you?

September 15 – Giving Sin Up

Scripture(s): 1 John 3:4-10

The problem with the excuses we use about sin is that we tend to minimize sin. Do we see sin like God does? God is begging us to give up our sin.  Will we?

September 8 – The Response to Love

Scripture(s): 1 John 3:1-3

When we really understand what God has done for us in Jesus we will experience gratitude.  God’s love overwhelms the one who understands it with profound gratitude.

September 1 – The Confidence of Abiding

Scripture(s): 1 John 2:28-29

Why is it that people struggle with knowing that Jesus accepts them? It isn’t because the Bible doesn’t say so.  It isn’t because the Bible is unclear about God’s commitment to us. We struggle with knowing the reality of the love of God because unconnected facts don’t give hugs.  Let’s find out what will today.

August 25 – The Power of Abiding

Scripture(s): 1 John 2:24-27

How does a person “abide” with Jesus?  How does a person stay in the love of God?  Do you ever struggle with that?  Do you ever feel distant from Jesus?  Do you ever find yourself wondering if God loves you as much as you thought He did?

August 18 – What We Resist

Scripture(s): 1 John 2: 18-23

The problem with sin is that it never looks that bad.  By the time we discover the evil we are in, we are already in trouble.  Jesus wants us to see how evil those sins really are.

August 11 – Building: Preparing to Overcome

Scripture(s): 1 John 2:15-17

Today, we need to build upon what we know about the world.  We need to make a clear decision for ourselves.  Can we serve God and chase after the world?

August 4 – Build to Overcome

Scripture(s): 1 John 2:12-14

There is a lot of darkness in our world.  If we are going to overcome it, we must start building our lives well.  Let’s examine together how God calls us to build so that we can overcome.

July 28 – Find Love

Scripture(s): 1 John 2:7-12

The key landmark in the road of life is love.  Not an abstract, “I love people,” sort of thing but a desire to bless the people in your life that is real and motivates the life decisions we make.  Without this type of love, we walk in darkness.

July 21 – Finding Obedience

Scripture(s): 1 John 2:3-6

Christians wonder why they do not experience more of God in their lives.  We wonder why there isn’t more joy.  We wonder why there isn’t more life, hope, and victory.  We forget that seeking life is not something you do once and then it is done.  Life is found when trusting God is always a “today” decision.

July 14 – Finding Light

Scripture(s): 1 John 1:5-2:2

Distortion is a real problem.  Not just with our eyes, but also with our lives.  Distortion causes us to not see who we really are. Distortion causes us to not see what life is really about. Distortion makes us accept the fake instead of what is real. Distortion makes us  spend time on worthless things rather than things that are important.  This distortion is sin.

July 7 – Finding Life & Joy

Scripture(s): 1 John 1:1-4

John’s question today: Do we have to let our circumstances dictate our life?  Purpose gives both meaning and joy to those who embrace it.  John’s advice? Embrace our purpose and we will find life.
