Given Jesus paid the highest price for our redemption, this should produce gratitude, and gratitude should prompt passionate obedience. That we die to self, and take on all of Jesus’ desires & values for us & the world. How do we cultivate this over time since, indifference leads to entropy, life is a constant battle towards disintegration. We must choose to follow, and there are basic tools by which we choose to do so.

Today we explored how what we fill our lives, our hearts, our mind with matters. It matters to our view of the world, our understanding of sin, and our relationship with God. Jason puts it this way...

"What we spend our time doing matters. What we eat matters. Choices matter. We’ve all experienced the growing distrust we feel in the information fed us through media sources & conversations. History’s rewritten all the time, who knows if you can even trust these statistics! We sit in our baby chairs, tie on our bibs, and willingly allow culture to spoon feed the junk food of misinformation, violence, sexual depravity, greed, gluttony & all other things unhealthy. All the while our Bible sits on a shelf & we can’t remember where."

In Amos 3:3 it says, "How can two walk together unless they agree?” How do we walk hand in hand with Christ not only as Savior, but also as Lord? We agree with Him, and agreement is played out in lifestyle, choices & behavior. They will know us by our fruit, and fruit grows on the outside, for all to see hanging off the branches of our lives. Agreement is the first step of obedience, and love & devotion are expressed through obedience to the One who gave His life for us.

The building of faith is like the building of muscle. There is inevitable self-denial, stretching & pain involved, but the results are health, life, peace & hope. In our continued exploration of faith, let’s hear what the Scriptures have to honestly & forthrightly say about the righteous life lived in faith.

How do we approach life seeing with eyes of faith, with God’s perspective? What does a life of fear, as compared to a life of faith, look like? This is explored in this sermon beginning with Romans 4:18-25, as well as looking also at Numbers 13 & 14 where Moses sent spies to scout out the Promised Land.

What is faith? What keeps us going even through difficulties. Beginning with Abraham in Romans and then on to many others in Hebrews 11 we look at what makes great faith, and that to which it points.

What Came First?

What came first circumcision/the law, or faith in Abraham’s life? What made him righteous? Moralistic observance of the law? Or, just believing the promises of God? To the surprise of Paul’s contemporaries, and especially the Jewish background believers, we find that Abraham was a Gentile when he was made righteous in God’s sight. He simply believed God, and righteousness was credited to him. This has profound implications for us today in how we live. Will we be a moralistic judgmental people like the Judaizers Paul argued against in Romans & Galatians? Or, will we live out of the freedom found through the righteousness which is by faith in Christ alone?

What would the father of the Jewish faith, Abraham, or David, the great king, have to say towards Paul’s ongoing argument that it is faith & not works which makes us rightly related to God? How old is the Gospel? Did it start when Jesus came, or did it come beforehand? These questions are explored in this weeks sermon from Romans 4.

Curt Thompson Guest Sermon

Speaker: 
Curt Thompson
Passage: 
Matthew 4:23 - 5:12 (NIV) Read...

We enjoyed an engaging, challenging sermon from guest speaker Curt Thompson author of The Anatomy of the Soul and The Soul of Shame. He used the Beatitudes (Matthew 4:23-5:12) as a jumping off point for his message. Unfortunately the audio recording for the sermon was corrupted and we are unable to post the sermon at this time. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience. We will post any accompanying  text or information to to this location if it becomes available, so check back.
