10AM – 2/4/2018 – “Our Amazing God & Savior” – Romans 11


As Paul considered God’s Amazing plan of redemption, how He saved he Gentiles, and yet will still keep His promises to Israel, he was just overwhelmed. “Oh the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out!” (Romans 11:33)                                        We don’t usually understand what Jesus is doing, as His ways are so much higher than ours (Isa.55:9) but as His plan unfolds, we are just amazed at the brilliance of His strategy. Jesus is God. Don’t question Him; just watch Him, and be Amazed!

10AM 2/4/18 – “Acting upon God’s Word” Romans 10 –


”The Jews were very confused that Jesus was the Messiah and now they were confused that Gentiles could be saved. But God had spoken to them many times, but they refused to act upon God’s Word (Romans 10).           Paul quoted Psalm 19 to show them that their King David understood the plan God had for reaching the world. Paul quoted Moses, as God said; “I will provoke the Jews to jealousy by those who are not a nation; I will move them to anger by a foolish nation” (Deut.32:21). Paul also quoted Isaiah 65; “I was found by those who did not seek Me – – I have stretched out my hands all day long to a rebellious people”.  If the Jews had been paying attention, they would have realized that God wanted to save the world from sin. If they had been listening to His word, it would have been clear that God wanted to use them to accomplish that, but they refused to hear Him, and act upon His Word.     God told Abraham; “In you all the families of the earth shall be blessed” (Gen.12). That has always been God’s plan.


10AM -1/21/2018 “Our Sovereign Father” – Romans 9 – cd#1674


”Is there any unrighteousness with God, our Father? Of course not! He is God, and everything He does is right. We would be foolish to judge God. The very nature of His mercy is that no one deserves it. It is a gift. And God says; ‘I will have mercy on whomever I will have mercy’. (Romans 9)

God doesn’t owe mercy to anyone, and He doesn’t have to give it to everyone just because He gives it to someone. Whatever He does is fair because it all comes from His mercy and He is God”. Pastor Chuck Smith

10AM-1/14/18-“God’s Conquering Love” Romans 8:18-39 -CD#1674


We who are saved are more than conquerors in Jesus. Christians go into spiritual battles having already won the victory. Those who are not saved can become victorious winners if they come to Christ. Jesus gives us victory freely; we cannot earn it, but only receive it. You may be fighting pride, covetousness, lust, or depression: Christ will enable you to conquer any iron bondage and give you victory. Are you are battling sin, addictions, or fear of death? Come to Jesus, He will make you more than a conqueror. He already conquered the crushing mass of our sin, and we no longer must fight it every day (Romans 8:18-39)     Jesus makes us more than conquerors. It is true! Will you believe it today? Come to Jesus Christ, & quit every other hope, by thinking only of Christ. If you come to Him the victory He will give you will be deep, holy & everlasting. He makes winners of all who come to Him.

10AM 1/7/18 – “Adopted and Loved by God” – Romans 8 – #1673

Romans 8

God desires to have a relationship with each one of us as our Father. He adopted us, sealed us with His Spirit, and wants us to be so close in our relationship that we call Him “daddy”.    My children always called me “daddy”, and as they got older, they called me “dad”. I would never want a formal relationship with my children. I want them to be close to me and comfortable enough to call me “dad”.                                 Our heavenly Father is the same way. We are now His children, and He wants a close relationship with us. That relationship is revealed as His Spirit communes with our spirit and lets us know that we are His. This is almost too wonderful to comprehend! God has adopted me as His child, and I am now an heir of God! And He wants me to call Him “Dad”.
