Box Theology, III

In this final installment of Box Theologywe ask, “Why is this story in here?”  God allows calamity to visit His people for one critical reason.  The costly error of believing God’s Word was boring was destroying the heart of Israel.

Box Theology, II

 Israel loses a battle with the Philistines, losing some 4,000 soldiers.  They believe that bringing the Ark into battle will surely turn the tide.  The result: the loss of 30,000 more soldiers.  In this second installment of Box Theology, we will explore why Israel had the wrong view of the Ark, and how this attitude profoundly affects our walk with God today.

Box Theology

 400 years after the Exodus, Israel was spiritually stuck.  They had difficulty connecting the holiness of God with their daily lives.  They had the Ark of the Covenant as a reminder of God’s presence, but they treated it like a good luck charm.  This Sunday, we start a series entitled, Box Theology, a study on the importance of God’s Word and His glory.

After God's Own Heart?

  Some are confused by Acts 13:22 and I Samuel 13:13-14 that says David was a man after God’s own heart.  How could the Holy Spirit provide this commentary on a man who did horrible sin?  This Sunday, After God’s Own Heart?  We will address why this said of David in the face of his many transgressions.

Sizing Up Jesus

 Every day we size-up people.  Physiologists tell us that we make about eleven decisions about a person in less than a minute.  Throughout the Gospels, numerous people had an opportunity to size-up Jesus.  This Sunday, Sizing-Up Jesus.  We focus on the seven different encounters found in Luke 7.

For Better Or Worse, V

In our last lesson in this series on For Better Or Worsewe will look at the process of decision-making when a couple become stuck.  God’s Word has a word on this, and the result of honoring His Word is real agape love.

For Better Or Worse, IV

Genesis 24 provides a wonderful template for finding a marriage partner.  This Sunday, Part IV of For Better Or Worse.  We will examine a passage that reveals the mind and heart of God regarding selecting a marriage partner. 

For Better Or Worse, III

 When marriages fall apart, it is usually not the result of a bizarre event.  In most cases, marriages fail because there had been a slow leak that went unattended.  In our third installment of For Better Or Worsewe will have a conversation about Covenant Companionship.

 

For Better Or Worse, III

In our second installment of For Better Or Worsewe will focus on Avoiding Marital Failure.  We live in a time when many have no problem walking away from vows made to God.  I even hear some speak of starter marriages.  We will look at the main reasons for failure and our need for God’s Word.

Love Is Not A Burden

There are many hard passages in the New Testament that challenge the believer to push to the next level.  Jesus’ words at Matthew 11:28-30 require our deepest trust of the Master.  This Sunday, Love Is Not A Burden.  Jesus taught that following God was not a burden as the Pharisees insisted.  This message will unfold the meaning of Jesus’ famous words.
