    Genesis 18:17-19
    Though few of us want to admit it, a lot of who we are is wrapped up into who our fathers are. Who was your father? Was he a man of character? Was he gentle or angry or distant? Impossible to please? Yes. He's affected a significant part of who you are today. In ancient times, the Jews understood their confession "Abraham is our father" was central to their identity as people of the promise. The same is true of all of us. Dads play a huge role in our self identity, self confidence, and self loathing. Dads always make an impression on their kids. So let's do it on purpose.

    Jonah 3:1-4
    God gave Jonah a task and his response was something like you might see in God’s people today. God says “go” and we say “no.” When Jonah said “no”, God gave him a second chance, which was not so pleasant. It was effective, however.

    2 Corinthians 4:7-15
    When Jesus walked this earth, He made a statement that we often forget, or we miss when we are reading it. He says, “in this world you will have suffering…” This statement should prepare us for what to expect in this life. We can not run or hide from this fact. But we can pursue peace.

    Matthew 16:13-33
    The question that Jesus asks His disciples, which is recorded in this passage, is the most important question in Scripture. The answer determines the focus of your life and the depth of your commitment. If Jesus really is the Messiah, the Son of the Living God, then having Him as Lord of my life is transformational.

    Daniel 7:13-14
    Life can be pretty lame. Suffering in the world and among the church is not on the decline. It can be demoralizing and disheartening and cause us to lose our joy. Yet God does not want us to live sad lives, but hopeful ones. This morning we'll explore what Daniel's vision means for God's people when they encounter hard times.

    Judges 14-16
    Samson is a mixed bag and there's no way around it. His exploits bounce all over, from illicit romance and marriage, to prostitution; from bets and brawls to enraged vengeance. It's actually tough to find anything in Samson's judgeship that is praiseworthy, and yet, God called him and God used him. I'm convinced that God used Samson, not because of his faithful behavior; but in spite of his faithless behavior.

    Colossians 3:1-4
    Sometimes life really gets us down. The difficult situations we face cause such grief and pain. Sometimes we cause a lot of grief and pain. It’s not just the pain, but there is also confusion. When we love someone and they leave, it seems inconsistent with the principals of life. Something tells us it’s not right, it doesn’t feel right. Why is that?

    Judges 13
    The more I study about the life of Samson, the more I'm convinced that Samson gets thrown under the bus in our Bible classes. His calling as a Nazarite - for life - was important in how God was able to use him to liberate Israel. Come back tonight, and we will geek out on the nuances of the Nazarite vow together.

    Psalms 78:1-8
    It seems like our calendars are filled with dates to remember: birthdays, anniversaries, and holidays. Yet, there are some days we do not seem to remember or celebrate. Yesterday was Armed Forces Day, May 29th will be Memorial Day, and July 4th is Independence Day. To most of us, celebrating those days means having a family picnic or a camping trip. Why should I remember the meaning behind days like that? God has given us days and instruction that He wants us to remember. Today, we will look at why remembering is important to the Christian walk.
