Sunday, June 21, 2020 • John Cole • Christian Leadership
The church is called upon to follow, and be, Christlike examples. It is not enough for people to learn doctrine alone. Long before the full cannon of Scripture became accessible for Christians as it is today, Christlike examples testified of Christ through oral teaching and faithful living.
Wednesday, June 17, 2020 • John Cole • Worldliness
What does it look like to contend with God? Solomon reflects on common vanities and contentious responses in this chapter. As followers of God, we need to respond to life vanities with faith and trust in God and awareness of the world's system.
Sunday, June 14, 2020 • John Cole • Spiritual Maturity
Paul denies that he has obtained perfection in Christ, yet he declares it will happen because of Christ in the future and determines he will press on toward that goal and high calling of God in Christ now. He then exhorts believers t o do the same thing. This focus becomes our "one thing."
Wednesday, June 10, 2020 • • General
Whether rich or poor, God gives us the same portion to enjoy—our labor in life in relationship with Him. The good enjoyment of our labor, not just the profit, is our portion from God. This is something all of us can equally enjoy, if received in faith as a portion from our all-wise, good and holy God.
Sunday, June 07, 2020 • John Cole • Salvation
What might you need to give up to know Christ and grow in Him? Follow Paul's example of giving up anything that prevents the gain of knowing Christ and His righteousness, fellowship, and resurrection.
Wednesday, June 03, 2020 • John Cole • Contentment
Whether rich or poor, God gives us the same portion to enjoy—our labor in life in relationship with Him. The good enjoyment of our labor, not just the profit, is our portion from God. This is something all of us can equally enjoy, if received in faith as a portion from our all-wise, good and holy God.
Sunday, May 31, 2020 • John Cole • Salvation
Are you a true worshiper of God? If you or I are relying on religion as our worship, we are not. True worship of God is through Jesus Christ in spirit and in truth.
Wednesday, May 27, 2020 • John Cole • Fear of God
God has no delight in fools who do not truly fear and obey Him. They impetuously make promises to God either out of desperation or to look good before other people, not considering the repercussions between them and God. The wise person fears and obeys God.
Sunday, May 24, 2020 • John Cole • Service
In this text of Paul commending Epaphroditus back to the Church of Philippi, we see into the complex and loving inner-workings of a Christ-centered, missional church. We see realities of life, God's mercy, joyful sharing, selfless service, and honored service. The church is a family with give and take. It is a team with a clear mission. It is a shared life in Christ. Church ministry is to be a reputable, honored service.
Wednesday, May 20, 2020 • John Cole • Fear of God
Have you ever heard someone reference God as the Man Upstairs? Not a good idea. God is holy and to be feared--both in our worship and in our commitments. Join us tonight as we see this text contrast the sacrifice of fools with the obedience of the wise and how all that relates to fearing God.
