Suffering For Good

As much as we do not like to experience it, suffering is a part of life. in 1 Peter 3 we are reminded that suffering can result in good things and that Jesus is a great example of that truth. As we tell that story we also know that after His suffering, He won the victory over death. We can share in that victory.
 



Chosen to Serve

We take a break from our series on the Gospel of Luke this week to look at the early church in Acts 6. The church has grown to the point that important works are being overlooked. The apostles’ solution was that men from among that church should be appointed to take on those responsibilities. The result was even more growth.
 



Do Good

In 1 Peter 2, Christians are encouraged to live good lives among people with different standards. Peter shows us how to put that idea to practice as he begins the third chapter. Doing good begins with us, and it begins at home.
 



Inside Out

The Pharisees and experts in the law that Jesus addresses in Luke 11 have the same problem that many people have: they are so concerned with outward appearances that they forget what is important. God calls us all to be transformed from the inside out.
 



The Will of God

Each month in 2019, we will spend one Sunday evening addressing a question submitted by one of our church members. This week we discuss this question, “Do we use the phrase ‘It was God’s plan’ to much?” We will look at the difference between God’s wish, God’s will and God’s plan, and how these things work in our world.
 
 
 



Harvest

The instructions Jesus gives to the 72 sent out in Luke 10 offer us great insight as to how the world around us reacts to Christians and the story of Jesus. Like them, we should stay encouraged and motivated to tell others the good news.

Your Will Be Done

In 1 Peter 2, Peter describes how part the will of God relates to how we interact with each other. Although we often think about God’s will for us, we glorify Him by honoring others.
 



Learning How to Move Forward

In Luke 9, there are a series of short events Jesus uses to teach His disciples. Like them, there will be times when we do not fully understand or feel equipped to follow, but Jesus reassures that we can continue learning and moving forward as we walk with Him.
 



Chosen

What does it mean to be God’s chosen people? It is not as much about predestination as it is about God’s desire to have a relationship with those who follow Him. Although the benefits of that relationship are good, there are also responsibilities for His people and their relationships with others.
 



Storms

When Jesus and His apostles encounter a storm on the lake, He is the only one in the boat who is calm. As we encounter storms in life, He provides that same calm. We need to learn the lesson that people learned in Luke 8, Jesus is the first place to turn in our storms.
