Yes, I Believe

Our series continues, “Yes, I Believe…”  This Sunday we will address The Devil That Distracts Us.  The evil one has many weapons at his disposal, but none he employs more than distraction.  Distraction is used to divert our attention away from our destiny, goal, or calling.  Successful, he can prevent us from receiving God’s promises.  How can we combat these distractions?  Do we have the supernatural capacity to see past them?

Yes, I Believe

Our series continues, Yes, I Believe…”  This Sunday we will address Angels That Minister To Us.  Angels are mentioned 116 times in the Old Testament and 175 times in the New Testament, and for good reason.  They are actively involved in the redemption process.  Stories of angels in Scripture encourage us to be aware of the “unseen world.” 

Yes, I Believe

This Sunday, Yes, I Believe In The Gospel We Proclaim.   Our lesson will focus on the keys of the core of the Gospel, and how these are impacted by our faith.  

 

Bethlehem & Christmas

 Having looked at Nazareth and Jerusalem, we are now ready to look at Christmas through the eyes of the village of Bethlehem.  Bethlehem was the city of David, the greatest song writer in Israel’s history.  Bethlehem reminds us of the role music plays in the telling of the birth of Jesus.   

Jerusalem & Christmas

 Last Sunday we looked at the Christmas story through the village of Nazareth.  This Sunday, through the mighty city of Jerusalem.  We will see how the birth of Jesus was received in the capital of Judaism.  It was received in three different ways which reflect how it is received today. 

Nazareth & Christmas

 For the next three Sundays, I will be telling the Christmas story through the lens of three different locations.  This Sunday, Nazareth & Christmas.  How is it that a village of a few hundred people could play a role in the birth of Jesus?  The Old Testament mentions hundreds of cities and villages, but not a word about Nazareth.  The birth of Jesus changed that.

 

Yes, I Believe

This Sunday, Yes, I Believe In The Sin That We Rationalize.   Most Christians recognize there is sin, but not in their own lives.  Constantly comparing themselves with hardened criminals, a false sense of security arises.  To buttress this, a new terminology has developed.  No one has an addiction; it is called sickness.  No one lies or steals; it is just a lapse in judgment.  The Bible paints a different picture.

Yes, I Believe

 This Sunday, Yes, I Believe In The Spirit That Guides Me.   There are some unhealthy ideas about the Spirit that impede His ministry to believers.  We will examine some principles that remind us of the help available to us as we live in a broken world.

Yes, I Believe

This Sunday, Yes, I Believe In The Son We Follow.  Fredrick Nietzsche, a philosopher who paved the way for the rise of Adolf Hitler.  He hated Christianity and wrote that he might be convinced if Christians looked more like Jesus.  We will address his take through the words of Paul in Philippians 2.
