The Legend of Joe Jacobson.
This is the story of Joseph, son of Jacob. It is a story of great promise, great difficulty, and great accomplishment. God is with Joseph and helps him to rise through the most unlikely and difficult circumstances. God can work in each of us in spite of the things that could bring us down to despair. Come and study with us. Use the study guide for personal study or join one of our small groups for discussion during this series. Series runs from September 23 – October 28, 2012.
There is an accurate description of the sinful condition of all mankind in Romans 1-3. This is the theology of sin. The good news that Jesus Christ died for sinners is found in Romans 4-10. I must acknowledge the truth that I am a sinner before I can trust Jesus as my savior. In this sermon series, we will see that ALL are Sinners, God made a way for ALL, and we need to share the gospel with ALL.
We are launching a book study this week on Forgotten God: Reversing our Tragic Neglect of the Holy Spirit. The sacrifice of Jesus has provided us a connection with God the Father, God the son (himself), and God the Spirit. The sad truth is that most American Christians live without even considering the present ministry of the Holy Spirit. Let’s try to strengthen that connection by reading this book and studying together. I pray that we learn to listen and yield to the Holy Spirit. May we be empowered to bring the light and life of God to a world that is dead without Him.
These sermons come from Luke Chapter 15, where you can read 3 parables about the lost. The Lost Sheep shows that God searches for the lost sheep and brings it back to the safety of the shepherd’s care. We have all been the lost sheep at one time. Many of us have also lost talents and gifts that God granted us. The Lost Coin talks about recovering what we have lost. I refer to the parable of the Lost Son in both sermons.
The season of advent reminds of of the coming of the Christ Child. He came as a baby to become our Savior. He came to save his people from their sins. He is coming again as a King to establish a kingdom and to reign. We are focusing on some of the gifts that God has given us in the person of his son in this series. He has given us hope, a way to God, joy, and One in whom we can believe.
This series is for Christians who want to have a Long Term Marriage. My goal is to share biblical principles about marriage that will help us enjoy being together for the long term. God doesn’t want us to endure a long term relationship with our spouse. He wants us to enjoy the relationship. The goal isn’t just avoiding divorce. There may be times we have to fight for our marriage, but we all want a marriage that is worth fighting for. We will consider several topics, including sacrificial love, submission, serving, forgiving, and appreciating the differences between men and women. If you are not married, you will still find principles that have application in your relationships. The photo is my parents holding hands. They have been married for 60 years. Thanks Mom & Dad for showing me and many others a wonderful example of a loving relationship.
This series addresses the desires within for which we seek fulfillment. These desires can be for good or evil. You must choose wisely which desires you pursue. We want to learn how to guide our desires toward good and how to steer away from evil. We must submit to God to have any victory in this area. There is forgiveness and cleansing for the times we go astray. Join us as we seek help from God’s word.
The church has a clear and concise message of truth for a culture that is struggling to find our way in the darkness. We will focus on giving Biblical answers to some of the most pressing questions of our culture in this summer sermon series. I’ve been troubled by recent answers religious leaders have given to these questions in the media.
Last words are important. This series begins with Christ Prayer in John 17 and moves forward to the crucifixion. It is evident as we read the gospels that Christ was living his final days with his impending death in mind.
GOD IS LOVE. crazy, relentless all powerful love. Does something deep inside your heart long to break free from the status quo? Are you hungry for an authentic faith that addresses the problems of our world with tangible, even radical, solutions? God is calling you to a passionate love relationship with Himself. Because the answer to religious complacency isn’t working harder at a list of do’s and don’ts — it’s falling in love with God. And once you encounter His love, as Francis describes it, you will never be the same. Because when you’re wildly in love with someone, it changes everything.
Jeremiah was a prophet of Israel during a very difficult time. His people had turned away from God. Many openly practiced idolatry. Jeremiah told them to turn around, turn away from sin, turn back to God. This was Mark Lowe’s first sermon series as Pastor of First Baptist Church. It was a six part series, but only three recordings are available.
