January 12, 2018 - Preparing for the Lord's Day and Bulletin

The opening chapters of the book of Numbers can seem like just that, a list of names and numbers. To the casual reader, there does not appear to be much encouragement or direction for our faith in Christ. Nevertheless, as we study these chapters, we will find that they clearly point us to the work of Christ on behalf of God’s people. We will continue our study of Num...

This Sunday, we begin our new sermon series, Numbers: The Journey Home. Over the next year, we will join Israel on their long and often winding journey from the base of Mount Sinai to their new home in the promised land of Canaan. This journey is not for the faint of heart. There will be setbacks and disappointments. There will be rebellion and punishment. Yet in the midst...

December 27, 2017 - Preparing for the Lord's Day, and Sunday's Bulletin

Moving toward the new year, it is appropriate to reflect on our lives.  What did we devote our lives to in the past year and what do we want to devote to in the year to come?  We see that Jesus Himself regularly devoted Himself to the word of God as the source of His life direction.  It is no wonder that Jesus regularly quoted the scripture, because it had a...

Did you ever receive a Christmas present that you just didn’t want?  As a child, it was always disappointing to get something practical like socks or a tooth brush. As an adult, you hope not to receive something useless or offensive. “You think I wear what size?” And sometimes the hardest gifts to receive are the ones that we truly need. Yet, it take...

Johnathan Edwards once wrote, “Self-denial will also be reckoned amongst the troubles of the godly… But whoever has tried self-denial can give in his testimony that they never experienced greater pleasure and joys than after great acts of self-denial.” The third Sunday of Advent, we focus on the theme of joy. Yet we can often miss the biblical pathway to...

Preparing for the Lord's Day Peace is a strange word to associate with the holiday season. How are you to have peace with all the traffic? How are you to have peace when you have added fifteen Christmas parties/events to your calendar? What is peaceful about Walmart in December? What is peaceful about children hyped-up on the excitement of presents and the rush of sugar? ...

As we look to this coming Lord’s Day, we begin our Advent celebrations by looking at the theme of Hope.  Pastor Ron will be preaching a sermon from 1 Peter 1:3-9 entitled, “Living Hope and Great Mercy.”  In that sermon, we will see that we have been 1) born again, 2) to an inheritance that is 3) kept in heaven.       &n...

Preparing for the Lord's Day In our sermon series on Colossians, the last few weeks we have learned what it means to take off the old self and put on the new self. Through our union with Christ, we have been changed and have hope in this life and hope for the life to come. Yet, sometimes we struggle to convey the hope that we have and are not sure how to share the go...

Preparing for the Lord's Day We have all heard the phrase, “That man is so heavenly minded that he is no earthly good.” It means that someone can become so spiritual in their view of the world that they fail to address real-world needs and situations. In our study of Colossians, we have been exhorted to, “…seek the things that are above, where Chr...

Preparing for the Lord's Day A uniform helps us to identify who a person is and the role that they play in society. When we see a man in fatigues, we know that he is in the Army. When we see a woman in a white coat, with a stethoscope we know she is a doctor. When we watch a football game, we can distinguish between teams because they wear different colors. Ministers wear...

Preparing for the Lord's Day Puritan John Owen once wrote, “Do you mortify; do you make it your daily work; be always at it whilst you live; cease not a day from this work; be killing sin or it will be killing you.” This week we will return to our study Colossians picking up at Colossians 3:5-11. In these verses the Apostle Paul encourages ...

Preparing for the Lord’s Day Five-hundred years ago a German Monk nailed ninety-five points for debate upon a church door. While Martin Luther only expected a lively discussion, the Lord used this act to ignite the fires of revival, the Protestant Reformation. At the heart of this revival was a recovery of the doctrine of justification by faith alone. We are not sav...

Preparing for the Lord's Day Union with Christ is short hand for describing the relationship that Christians have with their savior. It means that we have been so joined to Christ that we have a new identity, that we have been forgiven and that we have spiritual life that all flows from our Savior.  As a result of this union, whatever Christ does, affects us.  I...

Preparing for the Lord's Day We do not often speak of the session of Christ. We speak of His incarnation, His death, His resurrection, and His ascension. Yet those have all taken place in the past. What is Jesus Christ doing right now? The theological term for what Christ is doing right now is session. Jesus is sitting at the right hand of God ruling this world with all p...

Puritan John Preston once commented that, “To be in Christ is the ground of all salvation.” It is from our union with Christ that every aspect of salvation flows. Our election, calling, regeneration, conversion, justification, adoption, sanctification, and glorification all flow from being joined to Christ by God’s grace. This week, we will begin a three ...

Have you ever been trapped? Maybe when you were a child you got your head stuck in the banister. Or, as an adult you have been locked in a room by accident or stuck in traffic for hours. It is a rather helpless feeling to be trapped. To know that unless someone comes to rescue you, you have no hope of freedom. This week we will continue our study of Colossians focusing on ...

Have you ever struggled to be free of a besetting sin? Something that you desired to leave behind but for some reason could not stop yourself from doing? We all struggle in this way. Yet as Christians our response is not the same as the world’s response. To be free from the power of sin we do not look to the law but rather to the power of the gospel. This week we wil...

Preparing For The Lord's Day The church in Colossae had come under the influence of false teaching and the people were in danger of being deceived. The heart of the false teaching relates to the relationship between the law and good works in the life of Christians. Do Christians need Christ plus the law to walk in obedience and holiness? If not, how are Christians to matu...
