Loving God includes keeping His commandments. There are numerous examples in scripture of where obedience and disobedience lead people of God. In 2 Kings 5, Naaman is given simple instructions by Elisha, but hesitates to follow them. Eventually through the power of God, his obedience brings the result Naaman hoped for.  

Hear and Do

Jesus teaches in the Sermon on the Mount that living for God is about more than the rules. The rules they knew so well had purposes behind them. Understanding those purposes better helps us understand Him better. Living those purposes out helps us to be more of who He created us to be.  


On Sunday evenings in 2022, we will be looking at character traits mentioned in scripture. We begin this week by discussing the importance of character and examples of good and bad character from the Bible.  


Jesus begins the Sermon on the Mount by describing people who are blessed in various ways. Being blessed is not about how well life’s circumstances are going. It is a result of God being sovereign in your life.  


As we begin a new year, we take a look at how Jesus started His ministry. Following His example will help us begin well.

The Greatest

No study of love would be complete without a discussion of the love chapter: 1 Corinthians 13. Paul likely did not write it with weddings or wall art in mind. Instead it helps the Corinthian church and us better understand what the love we are to be known for should look like.  

Family Tree

We begin a study of the Gospel of Matthew this week with a part of the book that is sometimes overlooked: the Genealogy of Jesus. God orchestrates this family tree from an unlikely cast of characters to bring our Savior to earth.  

The Four Loves

Love is a major theme throughout the Bible. On Sunday evenings in December, we will talk about love and how important it is to love God and others. This week we look at four Greek words that express different kinds of loves using the book, The Four Loves, by C.S. Lewis as a starting point. […]
