Tonight, we see Jesus is better than the prophets, the angels, the law, and Aaron the high priest. Jesus is the Old Testament promise that there is something better than the law: the new covenant. We learn that Christ is the fulfillment of the Old Testament law and Jewish tradition.
Today, we start and finish Paul’s letter to Philemon. This short letter touches on some of the things we should adopt as attitudes and behaviors. In this letter, we see Paul as the beloved friend, the beseeching intercessor, and the burdened partner.
We begin our study through Paul’s second letter to the church at Thessalonica. Pastor Brett gives us a little history as to why this letter was written. Additionally, we see Paul encourage the Thessalonians in praise, in promise and in prayer.
In Ephesians 1, Paul praises the Lord in verses 3-14. He writes these praises while in prison, where most would probably complain about their circumstances. What should we do when we are upset or depressed? Learn the biblical answers as we look at Ephesians 1, in our through-the-Bible study.
As we wrap up the book of 2 Corinthians, we see Paul speak to the church in Corinth of their wrongful behavior. They in turn reject his corrections. We study the importance of being receptive to the Word of God.
In Chapter 5 of II Corinthians, Paul talks about what we, as Christians, should do during trials and tough times. Paul also discusses the Lord’s judgment.
Before we dive into the study, Pastor Brett provides a helpful review of the book of Revelation. As we read in Revelation 21, we are given a breathtaking view of the new heaven and the new earth, where tears are wiped away and there is no more death, mourning, crying or pain.
Romans 14:10-12 talks about “facing the music”. We are all going to be accountable for our actions in this life on judgment day. Paul reiterates Isaiah 45:23, saying that “every knee will bow and every tongue will confess to God.”
Tonight as we study through Romans 5, we find the theme of justification as something to celebrate! Our focus is on the many blessings we have as the result of this important doctrinal truth.
The Bible promises trials and tribulations, and yet they always seem to take us by surprise. This morning we look at some of the ways the Lord redeems these hard times in our lives. For anyone lacking hope, this is a great message of encouragement!
