Guest speaker, Ron McDugle, preaching on 1 Corinthians 13:1-3
Your perspective is dependent on where you are—God invites us to enter his presence as we face the trials of life!
In Romans 12, Paul describes both a vision and a strategy for living in this broken world today! God's righteousness has entered in, through his grace and mercy displayed in Christ, to those who have trusted in his salvation, but the world is still broken and needs righteousness! In Romans 12, this transformation is described in greater detail, and God's missional purpose for those in Christ becomes more clear... the transformed life, a life that displays the worship of God, comes about through a renewed mind! The life of worship displays the worship of God to an unbelieving, lost and broken world so that through God's people, dedicated to the worship of God, others may see, believe and receive God's gift of righteousness and also join his forever family!
True freedom is only found by confronting your feelings with the truth of God’s unfailing love completed in Christ’s redemption!
Romans 9-11 ties together the story of God’s rescue—how his covenant promise to Abraham is fulfilled in his new covenant family. As foretold by the Law and the prophets, God is faithful... All people everywhere are now invited to join God’s new “blended family!”
Some life choices are easily seen and measured—going to school, finding a job, getting married, having children. This series is about the often-unseen choices that decisively change our view of life, and our relationship with God and others. Over 2,600 years ago, a prophet named Zephaniah wrote a message in his day that is still true today. This book of the Bible invites us to make life changing choices that transform us today and for eternity.
In this series, we look at the hidden "Easter Eggs" or prophecies about Jesus in the Old Testament, and what they mean for the Easter story today. Each week connects a specific Old Testament prophecy about Jesus' death and resurrection with a correlating New Testament passage that explains its significance. By examining the importance of Biblical Prophecy & its role in Christian faith, this series uncovers the great rescue plan God had for humanity all along - one Easter Egg at a time.
Theme of Romans: The gospel of Jesus Christ reveals the righteousness of God by faith for the Jew and the Gentile as foretold by the Law and the Prophets. Now having been justified by faith, Romans 6-8 explains how believers can build Christ's church with confidence because of the gospel tranformation made available to every believer by a new life in the Spirit.
