The Book of Hebrews

The Book of Hebrews

 

On Sunday we will begin a study of the book of Hebrews in the morning service.  Hebrews is a book that teaches us how Jesus fulfills the sanctuary, sacrifices, and priesthood established in the law of Moses.  You often hear me say that the more you understand the Old Testament, the easier it is to understand the New Testament.  This is certainly true with the book of Hebrews. The more you and I understand the sacrificial system and how Jesus came to fulfill it, the more we gain from our study of this book.

A Conversation Tool

A Conversation Tool

As we continue our discussion of the Joy of Church Membership during the morning service this week I wanted to give you a resource that you can use to share our congregation with others.  Providentially our church name can be used to share with people the type of church you attend and each individual word has a lot of meaning.  Our “official” name is: Faith Bible Church, Orthodox Presbyterian.   Continue reading “A Conversation Tool”

The Body of Christ

The Body of Christ

1 Corinthians 12:27, “Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it.”  

All of those who profess a faith in Jesus Christ alone are members of the universal church.  When we are regenerated by the work of the  Holy Spirit we are brought into the kingdom of God and we are made a part of the bride of Christ.   Continue reading “The Body of Christ”

Our Corporate Prayers

Our Corporate Prayers

Prayer is an area we can all learn to grow in as we develop a more robust prayer life.  There are some great differences between praying individually and praying corporately.  At the eve of another new year, I want to focus our attention on the topic of prayer and some avenues that may help us to grow in this spiritual discipline.   Continue reading “Our Corporate Prayers”

The Peace of God

The Peace of God

Philippians 4:4-7, “Rejoice in the Lord always; again I say, rejoice.  Let your reasonableness be known to everyone.  The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.  And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Continue reading “The Peace of God”

Are You Blessed?

Are You Blessed?

I hope that you have taken some time this holiday season to reflect and to remember how blessed you really are.  In the midst of our busyness and celebration let us not forget the blessings of God.  Continue reading “Are You Blessed?”

Of Nativities and Nature

Of Nativities and Nature

Last Sunday morning we began a look at Jesus, the Son of the Most High in our morning service.  This week we will continue in Luke 1 by looking at Mary’s song of praise where she exclaims, “My Soul Magnifies the Lord.”   Continue reading “Of Nativities and Nature”

Winter Reading Suggestions

Winter Reading Suggestions

I know this is a lengthy thought this week, but save this if you are ever looking for a good book to read.

I enjoy reading, but don’t often take the time to read like I probably should.  I find it is one of the ways that God uses in my life to feed me spiritually.  I make a priority of reading God’s Word every day, but I also read many other authors and books that help me to learn about God and the world around me.   Continue reading “Winter Reading Suggestions”
