He Is Not One Of Us (What makes us one of us?)
Acts 10:1-16
 
The Creator notices godliness. He yearns for it among His people, but he sees it among the nations. The Jews had a hard time accepting this. Nothing less than an intervention of God could have changed this. But it is clear. Do you notice this among non-believing friends and family? Pour fuel on that spark!

    Q & A
    We will take the next several Sunday evenings to revisit our Question and Answer series from May. I have several questions still in queue from last time, and have received a lot of positive feedback about this format for Sunday evening. The question we will look at tonight is: "Why isn’t it more common for Greek definitions of words in the NT to be taught in Bible classes so that when passages like 1 Cor.13:1-7 get read at weddings we (as Christians) understand that the “love” being talked about is not the romantic love between a husband and wife? This distinction would also help Jesus’ conversation with Peter in John 21:15-17 to make more sense to us."

    What They Say About You When You Are Gone Matters Most
    2 Chronicles 29:1-11
     
    The author of the books of the Kings and the Chronicles would either begin or end the accounts of the lives of the Kings with a simple summary statement. Of King Ahaz, he wrote, “He did not do what was right in the Lord’s sight like his ancestor, David.” (2 Chronicles 28:1) Of Hezekiah, he says something different. Which would you rather have written about you? What will be written?

    Gifts To Give Your Children: Contentment

    We have so much and there is so much potential within us. Sometimes people accept mediocrity because their view of their potential in Christ is blocked by what everyone else has or is doing. When we learn to see ourselves through God’s eyes, we begin the journey toward contentment.

    What They Say About You When You Are Gone Matters Most
    1 Timothy 4:1-10
     
    Godliness is the application of God’s plan to the human experience. Before a person become a Christian she or he lives according to their own plan. When Christ’s gift becomes our possession, things change; unless you decide to hold on to ideas of the past.

    Gifts to Give Your Children: Boldness
    Acts 4:5-13
     
    The first century Christians held themselves in a way that was hard to miss. They were confident and straightforward. Luke simply uses the term boldness to describe them. The opposite of boldness is fearfulness, which is the natural virtue that surfaces if boldness is not present.

    Principles of Perseverance
    1 Peter 3:8-18
     
    Peter states that perseverance is one of the virtues in which a Christian should continually grow (2 Peter 1:6, 8). Throughout the two letters he writes, he gives several principles of perseverance. Today we will notice those found in this section of 1st Peter.

    Gifts you Can Give Your Children
    Acts 2:42-47
     
    What happens when parents give their kids things they don’t need? The kids grow up. (Insert awkward pause). Then what? They operate according to the virtues that you have planted. There is no magical time when kids get it. They get what you give them. Godly character is the gift. Over the next several Sunday evenings we will discover several of these essential gifts.

    Perseverance Can Be Astonishing
    1 Peter 4:1-6
     
    It is not easy to live in this world when you have the convictions of faith. Culture clamors and shouts to be heard. It distracts and deceives to gain acceptance. We have to dig in or give in. Peter’s message to us is to “Dig in deep!”

    Don’t Use That Kind of Language Around Me
    2 Corinthians 4:7-8
     
    Is this sermon about the dangers of having a potty-mouth? No. If we have to have that talk, this would be a sermon on Matthew 15:18. This is a message about change. Sometimes, change is a bad word to us. We are afraid of it, don’t understand it and we’re comfortable the way we are; but change is the basic truth of life. When we stop changing physically, we start dying. The same is true spiritually.
