Synopsis: Amid these changing and uncertain times in which we live, there exists a bedrock of truth that brings stability, security, and hope to our lives--God is faithful! Do we dare to live in the reality of that wonderfully encouraging, stabilizing, comforting, hope-filled truth? What does the Bible when it says, "God is faithful?" Our text today answers that question with three important truths for us to embrace and express confidence in.
Synopsis: In Jeremiah 36, there are four important truths for us to see regarding the divine inspiration of the Scriptures and each one is inherent in the description of how this scroll was written at God's command.
Synopsis: Each time the Word of God is heard, He expects you to give it a proper, positive response! Otherwise it will not profit you! (Cf. Hebrews 4:2) Each of the major points developing this theme in Jeremiah 36 of responding properly to God's Word when it is heard, presents a reason for why we should.
Synopsis: As a follow up on this morning's message from 1 Thessalonians 2:13, we look at another text of Scripture that deals with our estimate of God's truth and how we can model the kind of responsiveness to it that receives God's stamp of approval. Our challenge is to take to heart the message from God's heart in our text. God wants us to internalize and personalize His Words to us. Tonight's message looks at answering three questions: 1) Why is this so important 2) What does this look like in life? 3) How do I do this?
Synopsis: Today's text of Scripture deals with our estimate of God's truth and how we can model the kind of responsive heart that received God's stamp of approval. It presents to us a pattern for responding properly to God's Word. God's truth is advanced in our lives when we personally welcome it and positively respond to it. Do we view and respond to the Scripture the same way the Thessalonian believers did?
Synopsis: Tonight's message presents the 5th and final evidence of God's transforming and triumphant grace at work in Philemon's life. The message concludes with one key, overarching truth that empowers us to express that grace.
Synopsis: Our last message focused on the second half of John 17:17 and unpacked the nature of truth as defined and delivered by God. It has been personally and propositionally delivered to us. In today's message we move to focus on the first part of v. 17 where we find a three-fold instructive, impactful message of truth for us for us that indicates the function of divinely revealed truth.
Synopsis: As we continue studying our third portrait of God's transforming and triumphant grace, tonight's message focuses on fourth evidence that God had indeed been working in Philemon's life. It challenges us to give the same type of evidence in our lives today!
Synopsis: Today's message continues to expound upon the theme of "Advancing the Truth." Last week we looked at three arenas in which God's truth is to be advanced and be given a position of prominence. Today, we zero in on the last word of our ministry theme, "truth." We must know what we are advancing and have that as a settled conviction so that not even circumstances nor people can tear us away from it - whether by doubt, denial, or dismissal.
Synopsis: Tonight's message continues our look at Philemon, the third portrait of God's transforming and triumphant grace. There are four ways he showed God's grace was operative in his life. Tonight, we look at the third evidence of God's work.
Synopsis: In this morning's message we return to our text in 2 Thessalonians 3:1 to see three arenas in which God's Word needs to advance freely and be given a place of prominence and exaltation as we individually and corporately engage in "Advancing the Truth" - our new ministry theme this year.
