Wives and Husbands – The Mystery of Christ and the Church (pt 1) Ephesians 5:22-33

Wives and Husbands – The Mystery of Christ and the Church (pt 1) Ephesians 5:22-33

This section of God’s Word lays the foundation on what it means to be filled with the Spirit in three areas of relationships: wives and husbands; parents and children; slaves and masters. In part one, Pastor Steve begins to look at the roles of wives and husbands and how they reflect the Lord as a gift of grace to us in reversing the curse of the Fall.

“The Prayer of a Surrendered Prophet” (Habakkuk 3:1-19)

Good Evening! Our study of this timely book of Habakkuk brings us to the final chapter in the form of a heartfelt prayer.

It is a plea for God’s mercy (Hab 3:1-2), a proclamation of God’s power (Hab 3:3-15), and a praise for God’s sustaining grace and sufficiency (Hab 3:16-19).

Please read Psalm 5:1-12 and Philippians 1:3-11 to prepare your hearts and minds for worship.

I’m looking forward to a rich time in worship of making much of Jesus with you!

In His unfailing love and grace,
Pastor Steve

There’s Nothing Common About Grace

There’s Nothing Common About Grace

“Grace is a provision for men who are so fallen that they cannot lift the ax of justice; so corrupt that they cannot change their own natures; so adverse to God that they cannot turn to Him; so blind that they cannot see Him; so deaf that they cannot hear Him; and so dead that He Himself must open their graves.” -G.S. Bishop

You Alone are Holy, Rev 15:1-4

You Alone are Holy, Rev 15:1-4

This is the highest of all the attributes of our God – holiness!

Holiness is the very excellency of the Divine nature: the great God is “glorious in holiness” (Ex. 15:11). He only is independently, infinitely, immutably holy. In Scripture He is frequently styled “The Holy One”: He is so because the sum of all moral excellency is found in Him. He is absolute Purity, unsullied even by the shadow of sin. His holiness is the very antithesis of all moral blemish or defilement. Of old, God appointed singers in Israel “that they should praise for the beauty of holiness” (2 Chron. 20:21). “Power is God’s hand or arm, omniscience His eye, mercy His bowels, eternity His duration, but holiness is His beauty” (Stephen Charnock).

EVANGELISM GOD’S WAY: The Sum of the Gospel by Charles Spurgeon

The sum of the gospel is found in Christ Jesus! He alone is our peace, life, truth, way, hope, righteousness, Lamb and Lion. Spurgeon once again lifts us to the throne room in heaven to gaze upon the only One worthy of our praise, adoration, worship, and eternal joy! (Col. 1:15-20, 2:9-10)

Sola Scriptura… A Weapon of Mass Instruction

Sola Scriptura… A Weapon of Mass Instruction

Our only rule of faith and practice is God’s Word. Its authority knows no equal. May this article encourage you as to its sufficiency and supremacy. (Psalm 19:7-9)

For this reason we also thank God without ceasing, because when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you welcomed it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which also effectively works in you who believe” 1 Thess. 2:13

The most effective weapon we possess as Christians for the work of the ministry is not pragmatic methodology, our TV shows, book clubs, music concerts, radio programs, our celebrities, famous pastors, or even our social alliances with other cultural moral entities–as effective as some of those things may be. The most effective weapon that any church or Christian possesses is the Word of God and the life lived in obedience to its claims.
