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

Romans16

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 –

Romans15

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

Romans14

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

Romans13

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 –

Praise

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. Tozer

10AM Sun.Feb.11,2018 – “The Spirit Filled Life” – Romans 12

 

Romans12

God has given each one of His children certain gifts and ministries to be used in the Body of Christ; and though we are all different, He calls us to work together to accomplish His purposes. Christians are connected, and as the Body of Christ we are dependent upon one another. (Romans 12)      If we all will use the gifts the Holy Spirit has given us, the Body of Christ will function beautifully. But if we do not work together; or if we neglect our gifts and worry about what someone else is doing, the Body will be useless and out of control! Surrender your body completely to Jesus and discover the gifts God’s Holy Spirit has for you.

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

Romans11

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 –

Romans10

”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

Romans9.jpg

”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

Romans8

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.
