Cheer up! It’s 2017

As the New Year begins, we are reminded that we are worse than we think but God’s grace is greater than we can imagine. Our identity is in Christ Jesus, not in our successes or failures. Our sins do not define us. God’s plan is much bigger than we think and His grace is perfected in our weaknesses.

I Timothy 1:15

Jeremiah 17:9

Ephesians 2:1, 4-5, 8-9

Good News for the Poor

During this first week of Advent, we learn that Jesus gives the poor three gifts of comfort and joy: a crown of beauty, an inheritance of hope for the future, and new clothes of salvation.

Luke 4:16-21

I Kings 17:7-16

Isaiah 61

2 Corinthians 8:8-9

Why did God bring judgment through a flood?

Sin makes the heart harder and harder over time in both individuals and society. In this passage, the heart of mankind is beyond self-help and God is about to intervene with judgement but Noah found favor (or Grace) in the eyes of the Lord.

  • Seriousness of Sin
  • Interior Nature of Sin
  • Content of Sin
  • Grievousness of Sin (Romans 3:23)
  • Universality of Sin

Conclusion: We cannot save ourselves. Salvation comes from the Lord and He will keep his promise.

Genesis 6:1-8

Why Does it seem that Culture & Society are Getting Worse?

As we continue our study through Genesis, Steve Resch teaches us that the ruin of culture and society comes from refusing to repent, building a culture without following God, and making a name for ourselves. In order to build and create a healthy culture and society we need to give glory and honor to God.

Genesis 4:10-26

The power of perspective

As we continue in the Summer Psalms, hear Pastor Steve speak on Psalm 73, which tells us that we will experience doubt once in a while. When we question whether or not God is just, we need to focus on God to gain the proper perspective because intimacy with the Almighty transcends all earthly power.
