May 19 – I Can Share!

Scripture(s): Acts 4:19-20; 1 John 1:1-4; Romans 10:5-13; Acts 22:1-11; Acts 8:26-31; Luke 9:23-27

Making simple things difficult is alarmingly easy to do. Now, if we all loved hard things it wouldn’t be a big deal. However, too often hard things intimidate us. When it comes to witnessing, we must remove the difficult and come back to the simple.

May 12 – Do I Teach?

Scripture(s): Titus 2:1-8; Matthew 28:18-20; Proverbs 22:6; Psalms 78:3-4; Titus 2:7-8; Hebrews 13:7; 2 Timothy 2:2&15; James 3:1; Colossians 3:16; 2 Timothy 3:16; Hebrews 4:12; James 1:5

Yes, teaching is one of the spiritual gifts in the Bible. However, every Christian is called to teach. Understanding this calling means that we see the connection between formal teaching and the teaching we are all called to do.

May 5 – I Can’t Worship, Can I?

Scripture(s): John 4:23-24; Matthew 22:36-38; Philippians 2:9-11,3:3; Revelation 5:9-10; Luke 19:36-40; Matthew 21:15-16; Song of Solomon 1:1-4

Real worship happens when saved people lift up Jesus with all their being either together or by themselves. When we mean it and when we do it, we are we are worshiping.

April 21 – Easter Sunday – Why does the Resurrection Matter?

Scripture(s): 1 Corinthians 15:14–23; 1 Corinthians 15:29-32; Revelation 21:4; 2 Thessalonians 2:16-17; Romans 6:6-11; Colossians 2:12, 3:1

When we come to the week Jesus died, we focus much on the details. We think about the suffering. We think about His sacrifice. Yet, the early church believed so strongly in the importance of the resurrection that they changed the day of worship because of it. Why is the resurrection so important?

April 14 – Jesus on the Road to the Cross

Scripture(s): Luke 9, 12, 13, 18, 19, 22, 23

Propitiation. Vicarious, penal substitutionary atonement. For most of us these are simply big words without any bite. However, if we say that the blood of Jesus cleanses us from all sin, that means something to us. If we say that He who knew no sin became sin for us that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. That means something to us. What is the greatest thing? That it didn’t happen by accident or by circumstance. Jesus died on purpose for you.

April 7 – The Place of Jesus in History

Scripture(s): Luke 20:9-20

The Parable of the Vine-growers is not a story about getting saved. It’s not a story about being good or living by God’s standards. It is a story about Jesus and the enemies of God… religious people.

March 31 – Throwing Down the Gauntlet

Scripture(s): Joshua 24

I read the first and last chapters of Joshua and I think… This is how men think! They think of the challenge. They think of the mountain they are called to climb, and then the soldier, mountain man, and teenager in them responds, “Here am I, send me!”

March 24 – Make Faith Yours

Scripture(s): Joshua 23

We worry about our friends and neighbors because of the wickedness of the world. However, we must begin by passing on our faith to those in the church.

March 17 – Sin, Zeal & Misunderstanding

Scripture(s): Joshua 22

Have we really thought about why Jesus criticized the Pharisees and teachers of the law? They were the most morally conservative Jews alive. Many of them actually lived by what they believed (Saul of Tarsus was one of them). Why did Jesus criticize them? It was because they ignored the how and why and just focused on the what. When it comes to sin, we had better do the same.

March 10 -Preparing for the Future

Scripture(s): Joshua 20-21

They say that the ostrich buries its head in the sand. Fun fact: it does so to turn its eggs, not hide from danger. Yet, that has become the picture of a person who tries to hide from what they fear. God urges us to prepare for rather than hide from the challenges of life.

February 24 – Following Faithfully

Scripture(s): Joshua 11-19

When we become Christians we are told two things. First, that Jesus will make our way to God. Second, that we now follow Jesus in everything. What does that really look like.

February 17 – The Two Front War

Scripture(s): 1 Peter 2:11-12

It takes a tactical genius to win a war with two fronts. If God warns us that the war against our soul hits us on multiple fronts, aren’t we glad that He is such a genius?

February 10 – God’s Peculiar Sovereignty

Scripture(s): Joshua 10

For those who believe in Jesus, there is also a background to our lives. We see the disciples struggle with it. We see Jesus live it. What is that background? God’s control is never in doubt.

February 3 – When God’s People Forget to Pray

Scripture(s):  Joshua 9:1-27

What happens when God’s people forget to pray? Are there any real consequences?

January 27 – Recommitting to God

Scripture(s): Joshua 8:1-34

If you have ever realized that you have let God down, then you know the definition of being demoralized. You know what that failure feels like. You are also asking, “How can it ever be right again?”

January 20 – Taking Sin Seriously

Scripture(s): Joshua 7:16-26

Somewhere along the way many churches stopped communicating that repentance was a good thing. A false ideal of “perfect Christians” makes people hide who they are from the very help they need.

January 13 – The Consequences of Sin

Scripture(s): Joshua 7:1-15

There are two words that we must not avoid if we are going to have a strong relationship with God. In fact, we must embrace them: confession and repentance.

January 6 – Genesis 1 – Let There Be Light

December 30 – So What We Have Learned Applies to Our Lives Today

Scripture(s): Psalm 27:1-3; Galatians 5:22-26; Ephesians 4:32-5:2; Isaiah 55:7-11; Joshua 1:6-9

Whether it is living in love or becoming a missionary, living for God requires trust. We must trust that God’s promises are trustworthy. When we trust Him, we act on that trust.

December 23 – Jesus, the Light of the World

Scripture(s): John 1:1-13; Isaiah 49:1-7; Luke 2:32

When Jesus came on the scene, Jews understood God philosophically as the God of the universe, but practically as the God of the Jews alone.  Do we really appreciate and respect the nature of this baby we are celebrating?  He is the Light of the world!
