From Trouble to Hope (Hosea 2:14-23)

From Trouble to Hope (Hosea 2:14-23)

We have 4 stories intertwined in Hosea 2: Hosea and Gomer, Achan’s sin at Jericho, the Exodus, and God’s relationship to Israel. But the 5th story in this text is yours. It’s what this text is telling you about how you have treated God and what He has done in response.

Ten Commandments and New Covenant (Matthew 5:17-20)

Ten Commandments and New Covenant (Matthew 5:17-20)

In the 3rd of three sermons on The Ten Commandments, we explore how the New Testament handles the 10 which were the basis of Israel’s Ethical Standards. Do they have relevance to the Christian? And if so, then what advantage do we have of living them out?

JUSTICE is a word thrown around a lot. But do we really understand what God means by it? Sometimes the best way to learn the meaning of a word is to look at the surrounding key words in a Bible text which provide flavor. We look at Micah 6 and Psalm 33 to see which words help season our understanding of how God sees Justice and our role in its execution.

When God Visits (Luke 7:11-17)

When God Visits (Luke 7:11-17)

The biblical description of what it means to VISIT challenges us beyond our usual connotation. We first explore a case where Jesus VISITS a widow grieving over her lost son. And then we look at how this concept is applied to all of us in our responsibility toward widows and orphans.

We discuss how the Bible does not endorse either of these positions but instead teaches us how to value the body without overvaluing it.
