   Stop Worrying!
   John 14:1-14
Sunday Morning Service,  May 7, 2017
Often the circumstances of our lives don't turn out the way that we expect. In the midst of that turmoil, it is easy to worry about how things are going, what will happen next and if everything will be okay in the end. The disciples have been on an emotional roller coaster leading up to John 14. Their expectations of the Messiah establishing his kingdom immediately have been dashed by his proclamation that he will be laying down his life for them, Jesus has told them that one of them would betray him, and Peter has been told that he will deny his Lord. Yet in the midst of all of this turmoil, Jesus commands his disciples to stop worrying and place their faith and trust completely in Him.

   I AM the Bread of Life
   John 6:22-71
Sunday Morning Service,  February 12, 2017
Although the feeding of the 5,000 was an incredible miracle, its purpose was much deeper than just demonstrating the power of Jesus. Jesus performed this miracle to teach a much truth regarding Himself. Jesus performed this miracle leading up to a lengthy discourse to confront the multitude with the truth that He is God and that He would give himself to provide eternal life. Confronted with the truth, the multitude was forced to make a decision regarding their response to the truth.

   Having Your Cake and Eating It Too?
   Revelation 2: 1-7, 18-29
Sunday Morning Service,  May 1, 2016
 
Some Christians and churches take a "you can't have your cake and eat it too" approach to the relationship between love and truth.  They can't seem to love while they stand for truth. However, the Scriptures clearly show that love and truth do coexist and must dwell together.  What is the true relationship of love and truth? What do believers and churches look like who hold to truth in a loving way? Revelation 2 proves three examples showing us that a Christ exalting church lovingly stands for truth.

   Jesus before Pilate: Who Are You Listening To?
   John 18:28 - 19:16
Sunday School,  January 25, 2015
Pilate had Jesus standing right in front of him and he did not recognize Him as The Truth. Jesus' destiny was a Roman cross and Pilate could not stand in the way of God's plan, but do we not walk in the path God desires for us, because we listen more to the world than to God? The connection of Jewish feasts to the timing of Jesus's death and resurrection is explored as well as the much overlooked declaration by Jesus that he was born "to testify to the truth."

   How Do We Use Evidence? Part 2
   1 Peter 3:15
Wednesday Evening Service,  July 23, 2014
In Lesson 4, “Defending the Truth, Part 1,” we defined truth as “an observation we make about what is real.” Our observations can be expressed in statements called “propositions,” which can be judged true or false based on whether or not they correspond to reality. We do not make something true. Our task is merely to recognize what is true and what is not.

   How Do We Know What Is True?
   2 Corinthians 4:3-5; 1 Peter 3:15; Acts 22:1
Wednesday Evening Service,  July 9, 2014
In Lesson 3, “Contending for the Truth,” we saw that being faithful to truth is not merely believing truth for ourselves. It is standing for truth, which the apostle Paul compares to laying siege to a city (2 Corinthians 4:3–5). Furthermore, this battle is not won in the flesh, but through the power of God. Yet as we have opportunity to stand for truth, we will find ourselves in contradiction with those who oppose the truth, and we must be ready to “give an answer” for the “reason” of our hope (1 Peter 3:15). This series of lessons is designed to prepare you for that moment.

   The Right Kind of Love – Part 5
   Hebrews 13:1–17
Sunday Morning Service,  July 6, 2014
When we learn to worship God “acceptably” (Heb 12:28), we also learn to love God properly; and when we learn to love God properly, then we learn to love what God loves in the way we should love it. In the final major section of this letter the author of Hebrews challenges us not only to have the right object of love, but also to have the right kind of love in three vital areas.

   Contending for the Truth
   2 Corinthians 10:3-5
Wednesday Evening Service,  July 2, 2014
Faithfulness to truth is not merely personal faithfulness to do what God wants. In order to remain faithful to truth, we must also stand for the truth—we must stand up for the truth: being willing to engage others. The world calls us to “coexist,” but we must be ready to “contradict.”

   Why We Turn from the Truth to Embrace Falsehood – Part 2
   2 Corinthians 2:11; John 8:44; Genesis 3:1-5; Matthew 4:1-11
Wednesday Evening Service,  June 4, 2014
If we would learn to be faithful to the truth of God’s Word, then we must first learn why we would ever allow ourselves to turn to error in the first place. This lesson will take us into the garden in Eden to examine the first instance of a turn to error. We will then briefly survey the course of human history since the garden, littered with examples of this same turning from truth, repetitions of the Fall. In our journey, we will discover that there are two basic answers to the question, Why do we turn from truth?

   Introduction: Principles of Satan's Attacks
   Genesis 3:1, Paul's Epistles
Wednesday Evening Service,  May 14, 2014
The attack on truth can be summarized in Satan’s challenge to Eve in Gen 3:1, “Did God actually say?” For the first time, Eve was confronted with the question of whether God spoke the truth, or whether he meant something else instead, or whether he had the authority to tell Eve what to do. Furthermore, Eve was introduced to the false idea that there is more than one version of the truth. In this introductory session we survey what this same attack looked like in the first churches and identify some foundational principles of Satan’s attacks.

   Teaching with Parables
   Mark 4
Sunday Morning Service,  May 20, 2012
In Mark 3:23, Jesus introduced the concept of teaching with parables. In Mark 4, Jesus teaches a large crowd gathered on the seashore four parables beginning with the Parable of the Sower. His purpose was to reveal truth to those who were ready to receive it (Mark 4:11) and to conceal truth to those who would have rejected it (4:11, 12). If we are to understand the parables, we need to be ready to receive it and to respond with obedience.
