1 Timothy Introduction02/23/15
In this message, Pastor Rich introduces us to Timothy and his strengths and failings. In spite of his weaknesses, Paul found him helpful. What has God gifted you to do? Do you see something that needs to be done or improved? Speak up and step out!
Don't be discouraged with the things happening in our world. Remember that when it is all said and done, the Lord will prevail. Keep in mind that we are on the winning team!
Hope Beyond This Life
Paula Chapman shares concerning her sister's death. We all face death, but death is not the end. We have a hope beyond this life and that hope is found in Jesus Christ, in the cross, and in the resurrection.
Getting a Handle on the Word of God
Error comes from not knowing the Word and it is only after we meditate upon it that we can grasp it. Remember AEIOU: ASK questions, EMPHASIZE words, put it IN your own words, check OTHER related scriptures, and USE it!
How Long Can you Hold a Grudge? (Obadiah 10-14)
Pride leads to holding a grudge, which destroys relationships. In Obadiah, we see a grudge continuing between two nations that started 1,100 to 1,400 years earlier. In the end, it is the one holding the grudge who is the most hurt.
Teen Challenge 2015
The Providence Chapter of Teen Challenge shares their incredible testimonies and encouraging music. We are blessed as a church to have them visit us so often!
Obadiah: Smallest Book in the OT, but no Small Message (Obadiah 1-4)
Our pride will bring us down and our arrogance will deceive us. These are the sins that keep us from bowing a knee to the Savior. Edom thought it was invincible but God brought it down. What can we expect Him to do to our nation and individually today?
The Bible: Can We Trust It? (Psalm 19:7,8)
Not only does the Bible claim to be the Word of God, but also the reliability of its claims can be assured in several ways, including fulfilled prophecy, archeological evidence, internal consistencies, extra-Biblical writings, and others. So read it!
A Reason for Hope (1 Peter 3:15)
As believers we have hope, which should be evident to all. We must develop the reasons we hope, both for our own faith, and as an apologetic tool when others ask. Be the type of Christian that will make others want believe, then explain why they...
Two Births, Part II: Jesus (John 1:1)
St. Nicholas was a believer in Jesus and was even imprisoned for his beliefs. He, like John the Baptist, knew that Jesus was the creator, not a created being. On Christmas, we celebrate His birth, but when we become Christians, He celebrates our...
Two Births, Part I: John the Baptist
Just as we cannot save anyone from his or her sin, neither could John the Baptist, but we can point to the one who can. We must prepare our hearts for His coming. Not just once, and not just at Christmas, but daily.
Forgiveness (Matthew 18)
We forgive others because we are commanded to do so, because it allows God's forgiveness to work in us, and because it restores our relationship with God. In order to forgive others, we must ask for God's strength.
Thank You (Col 3:15-17)
Phrases that people find difficult to say include, "I'm sorry," "Let's Pray," and "Thank you." Our thanks need to be directed to someone specific: the one true God. Sometimes a written prayer or song helps us express our thanks to Him.
Salvation (1 Timothy 2:3-6)
All people start out headed for disaster, in need of a warning, and to be rescued. God's plan of salvation is for anyone who calls on His name. Sinners enter into safety not by their works but by the work of Jesus on the cross. Have you warned anyone?
Grace! (2 Thessalonians 3:18)
Grace is sometimes called God's unmerited favor. Grace is receiving good that we do not deserve and is in contrast to justice and mercy. We must recognize that we do nothing to earn God's blessing and this should help us to show grace to others.
The animals and all God's creation are innocent victims of the fall. They groan just as we do in suffering for our sins and for the sins of others, waiting for the return of Christ to make things right again. Until then we have fellowship to lift us...
True Peace Comes from God (2 Thessalonians 3:16)
True peace comes from God, but only when we ask and when we trust Him. By first having peace with God through Jesus, we may experience the peace of God through prayer. Staying in that peace requires our obedience to His commands.
Keep in Step and Stay Busy (2 Thessalonians 3:6-15)
Associating with those who cause division in the church or enabling those whom can work but do not, is wrong. Scripture teaches us to be busy and work hard. We set a bad example when we proclaim Christ but are lazy busybodies.
The Lord IS Faithful (2 Thessalonians 3:3-5)
We are in a battle, but God has promised to protect us from the evil one. His faithfulness does not depend on our faith and He is faithful forever. He is faithful to love us even when we are unlovable and His compassions never fail.
We All Need Prayer, the Word, and the War (2 Thessalonians 3:1-2)
At the top of Paul's prayer list were the Word of God, and the war against evil. Pray for others to preach the Gospel fearlessly--especially your pastor. We are at war with Satan for souls, but we have the prayer advantage.
