We’re going to see [in 1:18-3:20] that the sheer depravity of mankind is pervasive and sits exposed by and condemned under the righteous wrath of God. You need to walk away today aware or reminded that you CANNOT fully understand or truly appreciate/celebrate the good news of the Gospel without the enduring message of the first section of Romans.
When we think too little or too lightly of our sin and God’s wrath, we will think too little of the cross. We will think too little of Jesus and His gospel. Our affections will be numb. The context of the in breaking of God’s grace is everything. Like Dunkirk without a miracle…With no great plight, there is NO great rescue.
Join Pastor Dustin Rogers today as he challenges us from God’s word from Hebrews chapter 12 verses 1-2.
Pastor Dustin gives a brief message from 2 Corinthians showing the Gospel meaning of Christmas and why we have reason to celebrate every day.
What a blessing it is to be able to celebrate the birth of Christ – the advent of our Savior! – during the Christmas season. Jesus’ birth was the glorious dawn of the promised hope to Israel and to the world. It was the dawn of hope to people in desperate need of it. “The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness, on them has light shone.” (Isaiah 9:2) We praise God for the presence of Christ and the in-breaking light of His gospel! Please join us today as Pastor Dustin Rogers teaches from Isaiah 9.
The latter half of Ephesians 6:4 tells parents to “bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord”. This relatively small phrase is robust. It speaks volumes to us. [And btw speaks help to all who are positioned to influence children like grandparents, aunts/uncles, children’s teachers, etc]
I trust that God will use His word to encourage us in this great task.
The Family series has been about doing family well. God masterfully designed it as a beautiful and illumination of His glory. As we consider the last verse of Paul’s discourse about the family in Ephesians, it comes with a strong exhortation to parents.
Please join pastoral intern Micah Blowers as he brings us the word of God from Mark chapter 9 and will be blessed to consider Jesus as the Suffering Servant.
We continue to look into God’s masterful design of family. For the last few weeks we’ve narrowed our scope to the realm of marriage. Today we spend the majority of our time considering an oft neglected part of every family. Fortunately, our God doesn’t neglect anyone. No, every individual has a special place inside the family of God and inside His church.
As I’ve studied the Word and listened to dear friends, I’ve been both convicted and impassioned this week about the importance of what God has to say about the focus of our text. Marriage is NOT the ultimate prize. Jesus is the ultimate prize. Single friend, you are loved, complete, and useful.
