Unified

A STUDY OF CHRISTIAN UNITY

Sermon Handout Unity is an important trait for God’s people to possess because unity is the trait that Jesus said would declare His deity. In John 17:20-21, Jesus prayed for His disciples to be united with each other and with God, and the reason He prayed for this is “so that the world may believe that you have sent me.” So, while love may be the trait that declares to the world that we our followers of Jesus, unity is…

MISSED OPPORTUNITIES

Due to technical difficulties, This sermon is not available by video. A Podcast option will be added soon. Sermon Handout Have you ever missed an opportunity? Did it cause you a great deal of regret? If you had the opportunity to face that opportunity again, what would you do differently. The Bible repeatedly indicates that we will encounter opportunities that we should not miss them. For example, Paul said In Ephesians 5:15-16, “Be very careful, then, how you live—not as…

Role Call

Nehemiah 3 identifies all the people who contributed to the construction of the wall around Jerusalem. Among these names are some details worth noting because they teach us a great deal about the role of construction workers. This is useful information because, in a section of Scripture called “the household codes,” Paul indicates that each member of the family has a role to play in the home’s construction. Sermon Handout 22 Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord.…

The Baggage of Bitterness

All of us get are wounded at some point in time, and sometimes those wounds take a long time to heal. When those wounds go untreated, they have the ability to become baggage. We call this the baggage of bitterness because bitterness is the feeling of resentment that can lead to grudges. This week, as we continue our study of baggage, we focus on the baggage of bitterness in an attempt to not only define it, but also check it.…

You Are Sealed

Sometimes you receive a gift that you don’t quite understand how to use and sometimes you receive a gift that you intentionally or unintentionally abuse. One blessing that Paul identifies in Ephesians 1:13-14 that might qualify as such a gift is the Holy Spirit with whom he says believers “were sealed.” How are believers sealed with the Holy Spirit? What makes the Holy Spirit a “gift”? What is the benefit of being sealed by the Holy Spirit? Sermon Handout EPHESIANS…

You Are Destined

Predestination is a controversial subject even though it is a biblical subject. Paul said in Ephesians 1:5 that God “predestined us for adoption.” What does that mean? Does it mean that God has predetermined our eternal state or does it mean something else? Predestination is identified as one of our spiritual blessings, so should we not be concerned with understanding it? In this lesson we will try to examine the biblical doctrine of predestination so that we can understand and…

A Sober Ethic

What does the Bible say about alcohol and other intoxicating substances? Does God’s Word only condemn the state of drunkenness and intoxication, or does it also condemn the recreational consumption of such substances? Our culture condemns consumption of intoxicating substances when it crosses the line into what is considered illegal or abusive. Is that the ethical standard to which we are to adhere as citizens of heaven or does God present a different standard? Sermon Handout EPHESIANS 5:15-21 15 Look carefully…
