LIVING AS CHRIST’S IN THE WORLD
Christians have a responsibility to live as Jesus instructed us to live, and do what we are created to do. We get to bring the world a taste of eternity today.
A NEW NORMAL
As we settle into new CoVid norms we ask what that means for different areas of life. One area we must reexamine is our corporate worship practices.
AS DAVID BECOMES KING…
As we see David take his rightful place over Israel we are reminded of what a godly life looks life. David challenges us to live as Christ intends us to.
DOING RIGHT WHEN OTHERS ARE NOT
Idealogical/political divisions sometimes cause American Christians to oppose each other. How do we know what is right when many disagree?
How can we believe that Jesus lived, died, and rose from the grave, and live as doesn’t change everything?
Beyond the events that take place at Golgotha are all the people surrounding Jesus, and what their responses are to the crucifixion.
THE HIGHS AND LOWS IN LIFE
God allows (even causes) good and bad seasons of life. We are to live knowing that God is good, and accomplishing things we cannot see or understand.
WE AREN’T SUPPOSED TO KNOW EVERYTHING
God doesn’t reveal everything to us immediately. Faith requires us to live in the “unknown” and follow God daily, sometimes one step at a time.
KEEPING OUR EYES ON JESUS
The Old Testament points us to Jesus, not just character or moral studies. David fails, and so do we. Our mistakes allow us opportunity to draw near to God.
CAN THE CHURCH BE THE ANSWER?
David, on the run from corrupt king Saul, cares for people. Can the church be what our community needs when government has fails us?
The Fall & Rise of a King
Don’t let anything, especially jealousy lead to your demise;
If you find yourself green with envy or red with jealousy, rid yourself of it by loving God and loving your neighbor as yourself.
AVOIDING THE TRAP
Culture wants to suck us into their battles and their solutions. God has entirely different ways of solving human problems.
