Today, we are continuing our study of 2 Timothy, looking at the Rules of Life that Paul shared with Timothy. Paul, being at the end of his life, and suffering in prison while awaiting his execution, sent this letter to encourage Timothy, who was also going through trials in his ministry. What Paul shared…
Guided by a Sovereign God
Psalm 17 A lie-detector (polygraph) test claims to show whether a person is being honest. The common method asks the subject a series of questions while measuring physiological reactions such as blood pressure, eye dilation, pulse rate, and perspiration – factors which are difficult if not impossible…
Last week we started our study of 2 Timothy. I encourage you to open your bible to 2 Timothy now, so we can continue our study together. One of the methods I encourage everyone to use for Bible study is to read a passage multiple times. Also, we have the benefit of being able to read a passage in multiple…
Righteousness of God revealed - Book of Romans
Disputes Would you say that people, even Christians can dispute over even the smallest things? If we are honest do we want people to think the way we think and act the way we think they should act? If people don’t do that, what do we do? Or do sometimes? Insert Brothers in Christ Picture here The reality…

God Established When you think of things that God established, what comes to mind? Are there things that God established only for certain people or groups? Are there things that God established that are universal? God established institutions The home ( Gen2:18-25 ) God gave an order of things, gave…
Witness to the world: Book of Acts
Paul’s strategy Continues From speaking with the commander, to speaking to the angry mob, now to speak to the Sanhedrin council. Paul uses words to make a point and a difference. Along the way will give us somethings to consider this evening. When it comes to Paul and his confidence there is almost an…
Life as the Church - 1Timothy
James Rogers • Sermon • • 50 views • 1:03:25
Keeping the commandment Jesus said “if you love Me, keep My commandments.” Commandment keeping is not a popular subject and not a popular or even easy application. Today we are looking at keeping the commandment, not commandments, but commandment as given to Timothy by Paul. How do you look at commandment…
Apostolic Defense -Book of 2nd Corinthians
Does he really care? As we get into our section today we shift from “true comfort” and the reason comfort given (2Cor1:3-11) to the reason, or the body of the letter starts. (Courtroom setting picture inserted here) Picture a court room setting, there is an accusation that is made against you and you…
Summary: Paul teaches us in Romans 2:12-16 that all people are fundamentally law-breakers before God. What do the rules say? If you have a disagreement about the rules of a game, what do you do? You check the rule book (i.e. “Where are the rules?”) Here in this text, Paul is pointing out the ultimate…
Encouragement In Times Of Crisis
Introduction Do you know what today is? The last Sunday of 2020. We are 4 days away from the new year. I remember that as this year started there was a lot of talk about having a 2020 vision and dealing with seeing clearly in a spiritual sense. None of us expected the year to turn out like it has. Here…
Introduction We mentioned this last week but I want to stress it today. The foundation of caring for others is a desire to help them. There are several times in the gospel accounts where Jesus is moved with compassion for people. One of those accounts is actually my favorite miracle of Jesus. Turn to…
Watch Video on “The Trolley Problem” as intro... A dilemma such as this one is often used to discuss situational ethics. In philosophy it is often used to show there is not always a cut and dry right and wrong answer....sometimes things are more complicated. Today we are going to talk about what to do…
What is your faith constructed on? Is it built on the word of God, or is it based on the faith you have constructed for yourself?
The Gospel Transforms Us
Pastor Dean Taylor • Northridge Baptist Church • Sermon • • 2 views • 24:53
God has united us by the mighty truth of the gospel, but within this unity, we may find certain aspects of the Christian life uncertain. In these areas we are to give deference to other Christians to obey their conscience and receive, that is, lovingly welcome such Christians. While doing this we must beware of the pitfalls or ride we may fall into whether we be weak or strong in conscience.
As Paul closes his thoughts on our freedom in Christ he calls us to put the needs of others before our own desires. We must live with our focus on spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Omnivorian Liberty On our second date, I discovered a terrible secret, a truly disturbing life choice, a chronic disease afflicting my soon-to-be girlfriend soon-to-be wife. She was a… vegetarian. I wanted to make sure I wasn’t about to sacrifice my freedom to eat meat. #deal-breakers Some of you are…
The Corinthian Correspondence
Pastor Glenn • Grace United Family Church • Sermon • • 32 views • 45:06
What made the Apostle Paul such a powerhouse for God? Did he have great talent and skill? Yes but that was not where his power was. How about his Jewishness and understanding of Scripture? He did possess that but, again that was not the secret of his success. What was it that made Paul unstoppable as the Lord's "sent one"--sent to proclaim the gospel all over his world in his day? Come with the Grace United crew as we explore Paul's motive for his ministry.
Pastor George Coon • ELBC • Sermon • • 8 views • 40:17
Matthew 22:15-22 Government was established by God, and as Christians we want take the right approach to government. Pastor Coon gives us three things that are a proper, Biblical response to our government.
Jason Stuart Percy • Refuge TLH • Sermon • • 4 views • 1:15:06
Jesus position and authority in the Godhead are without question. Jesus pulls no punches in equating Himself to God in various ways. The religious leaders know what He's claiming about Himself and they hate Him for it. to them, it sounds blasphemous. And it would be, were it not true. While some believe various things about Jesus, it is His disciples, His followers who remain in His Word, who abide in His Word. Jesus has promised liberty in the truth for those who hear Him and so hear the truth. He who has ears to hear, let him hear! These thoughts shared by Jason Sturt Percy at Refuge TLH in Tallahassee, FL on Sunday, April 9, 2022.
