The book of Romans is the most complete explanation of the gospel that we have in the Bible. It's like an instruction manual for why it works, how it works, and who it's for. This is week one of a series exploring the gears of the gospel as seen through the book of Romans. In this first week, we'll be in chapters 1 and 2 and learn the answer to question zero, "Why?"
As we conclude this 5 week teaching through the whole Bible, we spend time in one of the most misunderstood books in the Bible. The book of Revelation. When studying the book of Revelation, it's easy to get lost or confused. So, it's our goal to see the big picture of what God was teaching when he shared this vision with the Apostle John. It's a super encouraging message about the power of God and the role of Jesus in it all!
This week, Patrick Harrison shares part four of our series "Let's Open The Bible." We've crossed over into the New Testament and are looking at the foundational message of the church... the Gospel. It's more than just good news. It's the kingdom of God!
Each year we set aside a Sunday to partner with Compassion International by raising awareness of the need for child sponsorships and of children living in extreme poverty and to give our people an opportunity to sponsor a child. Compassion is one of God's greatest attributes and should be the mark of a Jesus follower. Today we study Colossians chapter 3 and dive into what it looks like to have the compassion of Jesus transform your life.
It seems like we can just never have enough....STUFF! Today we dive into what it takes to find contentment with our money as we look at teaching the Apostle Paul gave to Timothy in 1 Timothy 6. A strategy for freeing ourselves from the trap of money.
Who are you? Even more importantly, who are you to God? So much of our own happiness is tied up in how you see yourself. Unfortunately, we often end up with a distorted view of our identity. Which leads to a distorted view of the world around us, and a distorted view of God. Finding your "identity" can be a complicated process. With so many elements of our lives that tend to define us, what does it mean to truly find contentment in who you are?
It's Easter! This week's teaching is from Philippians chapter 4, where the Apostle Paul claims to have discovered the secret to finding contentment. This lesson is packed with several practical and immediately applicable principles you can put into practice right away. But more than that, it's a message about the power of the resurrected Christ to bring us true peace. Happy Easter!
