As Christians we often find ourselves asking God for wisdom in difficult situations. That is good practice, yet if we want our lives to be characterized by godly wisdom we need to listen to what God says about it. In short, asking for wisdom is good, but if we are to obtain it we need also to listen. Where does wisdom come from? What does godly wisdom look like in our lives? How do we avoid playing the part of the fool? Proverbs gives us the answers to these questions and more. In this series we will tackle a number of themes that are found in the book that help us to grow in wisdom and understanding. What we will find is not some magic formula for making hard decisions, but a way of life that honors the God who made us and bears much fruit.
The first book of Samuel records for us the transition of Israel from a theocracy to a monarchy. From the time of Joshua, Israel had been governed by judges and yet every man did what was right in his own eyes. Not only were they in moral decline, but they were also constantly oppressed by their enemies. Thinking a king would solve their problems, the people asked the prophet/judge, Samuel, to appoint for them a king like those of the other nations. I Samuel tells us the story of God granting their request. It is a tale of two kings who teach us in many different ways our need for a true Savior and King.
After the people of God have returned from exile in Babylon, they are back in their homeland with a newly rebuilt temple. Yet things are not as they expected them to be and they grow complacent toward God and the covenant that He had established with them. Through the prophet Malachi God reminds his people of his love, warns them of the consequences of their sin, and calls them back to the covenant.
This series will look at the beginning of the Christian church as told through the book of Acts. If we are to understand how we fit in God’s design for His church, we must look at the lives and experiences of those who were eyewitnesses to the life, death, and resurrection of the one who chose them to begin His church, Jesus Christ.
Deuteronomy is a record of sermons that Moses gave to the people of Israel before they entered the promise land. The book is a call to God’s people to remain faithful to the covenant that God has given them. Join us as we journey through this Old Testament book and discover how in many ways their story is very similar to our story.
The focal point of God’s love and mercy was born in Bethlehem.
“For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given;
and the government shall be upon his shoulder,
and his name shall be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” -Isaiah 9:6-7
In Him we find the greatest hope mankind could ever hope for.
“And being found in human form,
he humbled himself
by becoming obedient to the point of death,
even death on a cross.” -Philippians 2:8
In this series we will be examining the amazing implications of the Advent of Christ.
