10AM 4/22/18 “All Is From God” 1 Cor. 4


Those in the church at Corinth were boasting about being more gifted than others (1 Cor.4).   The Apostle asked them; “Who makes you different from one another? And what do you have that you did not freely receive? And if it was freely given to you, why do you boast about it as if you had something to do with receiving it.                    Everything we have was given to us by God. Our life, our talents, abilities, knowledge, gifts, and possessions, all is from God. It is foolish to think we are more gifted than someone else because of our talents, knowledge, gifts or possessions. These were all freely given to us by The Holy Spirit of God who tells us not to think more highly of ourselves than we think of others (Phil.2:3,4).

10AM Sunday 4/15/18 “The Temple of the Holy Spirit” – 1 Corinthians 3 –


If you are Born Again the Holy Spirit lives inside of you. You are the temple of God the Holy Spirit! Paul is reminding the carnal, and immature Corinthian church that the temple of God is holy, and should be set apart for His use, and not mistreated or defiled in the world (1 Cor.3).  Some people use this scripture to teach against smoking or over eating. That could be applied; but to keep it in context we should include candy, and every other thing that is bad for our bodies.                         What Paul was really talking about here was the abuse of our bodies that takes place when we use our bodies for immoral behavior. Our bodies are His Holy Temple, and we need to keep them pure from the disease of sin that is in the world.

10AM Sunday: 4/5/18 “Revealed By The Spirit” – 1 Corinthians 2


This verse in 1 Cor. 2 – “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him” is from Isa.64:4 and has been quoted too many times as though it concerns heaven. Now it certainly does apply to heaven; but in context (read on to verse 10) the Holy Spirit is talking about what we have right now because of the sacrifice of Christ on the Cross.                                            People don’t really understand the glorious grace, forgiveness, and gifts of God that could be theirs if they would only accept Jesus into their hearts and lives.  How many Christians really appreciate what we have right here and now? But He has revealed them to us through His Spirit.

10am EASTER”The Resurrection & Our Faith” 1 Corinthians 15 – *NOTE* 6:30 pm Study Cancelled Tonight

Easter 2018

There so many so-called ‘ministers’ today who do not believe that Jesus really rose from the dead. Now this is nothing new; there were those in Paul’s day who said the same thing.  However Paul made it clear in this letter to the Corinthians; that if Jesus Christ didn’t rise from the dead we are hopelessly lost in our sins. (1 Cor. 15)          Any teaching that denies the Resurrection of Christ is empty. Any church without the risen Jesus is pathetic and to be pitied. But Paul went on to say; “But now Christ has risen from the dead.” Hallelujah.

10AM Sunday 3/25/18 – “GOD’S CHOICE” – 1Corinthians 1


God did not choose many “wise according to the flesh.” In the eyes of the world, most Christians are not wise or powerful, and influential. God usually chooses plain, simple people. And why does God choose that way? “.. that no flesh should glory in His presence!”                    If I were a great scholar, or had some great title or talent, and I was famous, people might say:       “No wonder Jesus chose him.” Or I might even be tempted to be prideful. But when they see what God is able to accomplish through a regular guy with nothing special to attract God’s attention then people say: “That’s amazing! God can use a simple guy like that.” And the glory is God’s for the great things He has done!

10AM Sun.3/18/18 – “Wise and Simple” – Romans 16 * * * * 6:30 PM Study Cancelled Tonight – Back next Week.


Be wise in what is good & simple concerning evil.” (Romans 16) The flesh has a morbid curiosity about evil things. The carnal person wants to know about the practices of the world of evil. They are curious about séances, spiritism, and the occult. These worldly people want to learn all about evil practices. Some Christians think that if you are going to minister to young people you need to learn all about the latest movies, music and media.      The Bible tells us to be wise about what is good, and simple about evil things. Why pollute your brain with garbage?  There are many things we’d be much better off not understanding.

10AM Sun.3/11/18 “One In The Spirit” – Romans 15 – Spring your clocks forward –


We are told to “receive one another, just as Christ also received us, to the Glory of God” (Romans 15). Ephesians 1:6 tells us that we are “accepted in the Beloved.” Since Jesus has accepted us, we should certainly accept one another.                                                                             Let the Holy Spirit of God pull down any artificial barriers that divide us from the rest of the Body of Christ. We are One in the Spirit and we must allow Christ to break down any walls people have built to define their own territory. Let’s always be open to the work of The Spirit of God.

10AM Sunday 3/4/18 “God’s Law of Liberty” Romans 14 #1677


The early church worshiped together on Sunday, because that was the day Jesus rose from the dead (Acts 20:7) But some of the Jewish believers in the early church wanted to worship on Saturday because that was Jewish tradition.   –  Some people today worship on Saturday.  Paul points out in Romans 14 that some people esteem “one day above another; another esteems every day alike.” It is acceptable to have differing opinions. What is not acceptable is to judge each other based on these opinions.  –  Christians enjoy God’s Liberty, and don’t allow anyone to judge them according to Sabbath days (Col.2:16). I have Liberty to worship on any day, because they are all the Lord’s days. But I won’t judge you if you see it differently, and I hope you won’t judge me, or other Christians. These are not the kinds of things the body of Christ should be arguing about.

10am Sun.2/25/18 “Wake Up & Enjoy The Love” Romans 13 – CD#1677


God wants His Bride, the church, to be awake & watching for the return of their Loving Bridegroom at any time. (Romans 13) There are no prophecies that have to be fulfilled before the Rapture of the Church because He wants His Bride to live every day knowing that Jesus could come at any moment to take up His Church.           Throughout church history there has remained in the hearts of every Christian an eagerness for Jesus’ return, and God planned it to be that way.     Living in anticipation of Christ’ return ensures that Christians stay awake, set apart from the pleasures of the world, and focused on their spiritual lives. And awake to the possibility that today might be the day Jesus will come back for us. (John 14) The church must stay awake, looking forward to the joy set before us. The day is at hand.


10AM Sun. 2/18/18 “Spirit Filled Loving” Romans 12 – Part 2 –


The purpose of nature is to lead us to the Creator and to worship and Love Him.  The purpose of our feelings and emotions is to lead us to our Creator, the One who planted them within our hearts.       Everything in creation points to the Creator arousing within us a Loving wonder, admiration and worship.  Wherever we go, we can worship.  Jesus taught that essentially we are portable sanctuaries, and if we are worshiping in spirit and truth, we can take our sanctuary with us.  Jesus said, “Don’t you see that if God is Spirit, worship is spiritual, and anything spiritual has no location in space or in time?”  You do not get up in the morning look at your calendar and say: “This is the time to worship”.  You don’t go out, look around and say: “This is the place to worship.” You worship God anywhere, any place, any time, because worship is spiritual- –    A.W.
