In John 20:19-23, we find a room filled with fear and grief until Jesus Himself becomes the peace and sending voice for His Apostles. The reality of the Resurrection impacts how we see Jesus and the life He has called us to live.
Responding to the Call of God
Once a person has been a Christian for a period of time it’s not unusual to develop a sense that God is leading them to say or do something, or to go somewhere. We find ourselves in chapter 11 of Hebrews looking at Abraham and how this man of faith responded to the call of God. Join us as we look at how faith responds to the call of God.
Christ proves that He is God and Lord over all by demonstrating His power over death. We see His mighty power on display in Luke’s Gospel chapter seven. Join us as we see our mighty God enter into a hopeless environment, and cause everyone one in that environment to stand in awe and wonder of Him.
Faith for the Storm
As we continue to look at Hebrews chapter 11, we come to the story of Noah. The lesson that we are taught, is you survive a storm by being prepared for it’s arrival. Join us as we glean from Noah’s life how to prepare for the coming storms that we will face in life.
The Church and Culture - Clash of Values
Hebrews chapter 11 gives us a list of those who held true to their commitment to God in the face of opposition from both family and culture. As we come to verse 5, we now study the life of a man who held a different set of values than the values held by the culture. How can we live faithfully in the midst of a culture that is determined to live contrary to Scripture? Join us as we look at the counter-culture life of a man named Enoch.
Faith of Abel
In our study of Hebrews we come to a man by the name of Abel. What this man’s life shows us is that those who relate to God on the basis of faith have always suffered at the hands of legalistic and self-righteous people. After all, who turned Jesus over to the Romans to have him put to death? The self-righteous religious leaders of Israel. There has always been a war between those of Faith and those of Religion. Hebrews 11:4 now reveals how those who are of the “Faith” are to live.
