Wisdom to Discern

1 Kings 3:5-14

I/Me or We? 
This is a question we all face as we say our prayers, make decisions and establish our priorities. This is also a question Solomon faced when The Lord came to him in a dream and said he should ask whatever he wanted and God was going to give it to him. This sounds great. God is giving Solomon sort of a blank check. All he needs to do is fill in the amount.

Man Proposes God Disposes

Proverbs 16:1-4

This life revolves around plans we have, whether they be short-term or long-term. The truth is if we have no plans or goals it is clear that we are not moving towards anything of significant value. Life is not meaningful if you don't have something that you are working on or aiming for, to improve the overall quality of life. 
The Word of God declares in Proverbs 29:18, "Where there is no vision the people perish." In Proverbs chapter 16 the Bible says, "The plans of the heart belong to man but the answer of the tongue is from The Lord. All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes, but The Lord weighs the spirit. Commit your work to The Lord and your plans will be established."

Making Right Choices

Hebrews 11:23-26

We all have to make choices in life. Some choices are easy and some choices are hard but every choice we make is important because we are the sum total of all the choices we have made till this point. Some of the choices we made were good and some were bad, but we are where we are today. Our future going forward will also be determined by the choices we make today. That is the reason why we need to make good choices.

Surrender to God

Proverbs 3:5-6

The Bible is full of God's promises and one of these great promises is found in the Book of Proverbs, written by Solomon. In Proverbs chapter 3, verse 5 and 6 he writes, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight."
 
From this passage, Solomon explains that there is a cause and effect relationship between the promises of God and their fulfillment. In other words, God gives us conditions for us to follow so that we would receive the benefit of His promises. How God fulfills His promises is up to Him, but our failure to trust Him often deprives us of the spiritual and physical blessings we need.
 
Join us this week as we explore ways to trust and rely upon God's promises and His goodness.

Run to Win

1 Cor. 9:24-27

In this passage, Paul draws upon the metaphor of sports for the Christian life. Paul compares the Christian life to a Marathon race, an event well-known to the early Christians in Corinth. Paul challenged the Christians not only to enter the Christian race and just go through the motions, but rather to run in such a way that they may win the prize.
Join us this week as we study the game plan of this race.

Hebrews 11:1-3

The book of Hebrews repeatedly uses the word "better" to show the superiority of Jesus. It says Christ is better than the angels, He brought a better hope because He is the advocate of a better covenant, which is established on better promises. In the Old Testament God often spoke to his people through His prophets. This was incomplete until Jesus burst onto the scene.
Join us this week as we examine God's final revelation in His Son and the message that God has spoken by His Son.

Advent Series Pt1 - The Miracle of the Moment

Galatians 4:4-7

This year our theme for Christmas is "The Miracle of Christmas" and for the next four Sundays of Advent, we will explore what the season means for us. Galatians chapter 4 says that "At the fullness of time, God sent His Son." We have often heard that timing is everything. Paul says Jesus came at the right time. The birth of Christ was not just a happenstance or coincidence. God planned it and executed it. Many people at the time did not recognize the significance of Christ's birth at the time, but some did.
Join us this week as we examine how God intervenes in human history at the right moment.

The Love of the King

Romans 5:1-8

The whole Bible is a love story. The central message in the Bible is that God loves us. One of the famous scriptures in the Bible, John 3:16, declares that, "For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son that whosoever should believe on Him, should not perish but have eternal life."
In other words, every human being, whether he or she knows it, wants to hear it, or not, God loves you and loves the whole world.
This week we will look at the subject of the love of God. There is nothing like the love of God. It is an amazing thing to experience it. In our passage, Paul said this love was demonstrated at the Cross of Calvary.
Join us this week as we explore how God shows His love for us on the cross.
