Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,

This morning, we'll be taking another break from our journey through 1 Corinthians.  We'll hear from the team that went to Belize and also look at the doctrine of Scripture Alone.  Before I leave for a few months, I wanted to remind us of why we believe and trust the Bible.  The phrase, "Scripture Alone" is part of 5 core beliefs about salvation birthed out of the Protestant Reformation, and we'll focus on just one aspect of that phrase: the sufficiency of Scripture.  God's Word is indeed sufficient.  In fact, it is more than enough!  I pray you are encouraged and challenged today to better live for His glory by His great grace, through the power of the Holy Spirit.

Pastor Ryan

 

Text:

“But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it and how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.”

2 Timothy 3:14-17 ESV

Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

This morning we will be taking another break from our study in 1 Corinthians.  Last week we looked at the significance of the temple curtain being torn when Christ died on the cross.  This week we will focus on the significance of Christ’s ascension to the Father after his resurrection.  We will see that:

  1. Christ physically ascended on our behalf, just as He came down to earth physically on our account.
  2. Christ is now advocating for us in the presence of His Father.
  3. Christ is preparing a place for us and also sends us His Spirit.

I pray that these great truths strengthen you today to live boldly in His glory!

Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ!

This morning we take a break from our journey through 1 Corinthians and will look at a parable that Christ told found in Luke 18.  Here we will see two men (a Pharisee and a tax collector) and the way that they approach God: One with self-righteousness and one calling on the mercy of God.

During this season of Lent leading up to Easter we remember and reflect on the cross of Christ.  As we do so, may we have hearts of repentance and by the Holy Spirit be renewed and rejoice I the great mercy of our great God!

My prayer is that we will be changed by God’s Word today and better equipped for every good work, all for His honor and glory!
