In this study we saw that this oft-quoted passage of Scripture may actually be talking more about the effects of true faith more than its actual substance. Pastor Brett contrasted our initial saving faith with a faith that endures and continues, producing good fruit.
We were challenged with the questions of whether we actually believe God today and whether we are truly living our daily lives walking by faith.
Then we were pressed to examine our faith to see how it stands up. We looked at the substance of our faith, to see if our faith lines up with God’s word and has evidence of God’s fingerprint. Then we looked at the size of faith and saw that even a mustard seed (Matthew 17:20) is enough with Jesus to accomplish great work. Finally we ended looking at the strength of our faith seeing that the strength of our faith is related to faith’s object: Jesus Christ.
In Today’s teaching, Pastor Brett takes a look at science and the Bible to show these are not mutually exclusive. The Bible stands the test of time as a reliable source of truth, and humanity’s growing knowledge of creation continues to affirm the Bible’s authority.
In Ephesians 4, Paul talks to the church at Ephesus about their walk. Pastor Brett talks about how before we can walk, we must first learn to sit, then stand.
As we read through Galatians 1, Pastor Brett examines why Christianity is the only true religion. We learn of absolute truth in our continued study through the Bible.
Revelation 14 covers three major scenes. The first involves the 144,000 who are in the presence of the Lamb. The second reveals angels who are communicating messages about salvation, Babylon and Hell. The final scene is a sobering picture of the reaping of the earth, which ends with images of the Battle of Armageddon.
We cover the rest of Romans 1 tonight. Paul explains not only the qualities of the unrighteous, but their lack of excuse as well, in light of the great pains the Lord has taken to reveal Himself to mankind. This is the groundwork he is laying for the rest of this powerful book.
Paul is summoned to speak to Felix and his wife, Drusilla. Felix is shaken by Paul’s words. Yet, rather than respond, Felix sends Paul away. Today’s teaching is a deeper look at what Paul shared regarding righteousness, temperance and the judgment to come. Hopefully we will take the time to consider Paul’s teaching, and respond prayerfully and thoughtfully, unlike this foolish pair.
We cover the end of Paul’s first missionary journey. It wasn‘t an easy one as he and Barnabas were met with extreme reactions. On the one hand, some gave them praise and exultation they neither wanted, nor sought. On the other end of the spectrum, they faced fierce opposition and even stoning. In all of this, the gospel was taught faithfully and brought about much fruit.
Unable to deny the miracle of the lame man’s healing, the religious leaders attack Peter and John. By the Holy Spirit’s power, Peter boldly defends the name of Jesus. In spite of the opposition, the church is strengthened as the believers remain prayerful, steadfast and united.
At this time, Israel has forgotten his maker, flaunted his sin and fraternized with other nations. As we examine our own lives, learn how the Lord is our healer in our continued study through Hosea.
