From Shadows to Light

This morning, Brother Danny shared with us from all four gospels, as well as other passages, as we all followed the tragedy of Good Friday and the crucifixion of Jesus to the joyous discover of the empty tomb on resurrection morning. For those who have Jesus as their Lord and Savior, we also have a tale of moving from the shadows of death into the light of our salvation!

Father Abraham Knew Best

This morning, Brother Danny shares with us from the book of Galatians, chapter 3. In verses 6 through 9, the Apostle Paul lets his readers know, in the face of the Judaizers, that we can look back to the example of Abraham to demonstrate that God’s plan of salvation for Jew and Gentile is grace through faith, and that it has remained unchanged throughout history.

Are We Ready to Come to the Table?

As we celebrated the Lord’s supper today, Brother Danny remined us of Paul’s first letter to the church at Corinth. Paul spoke of how the church at Corinth was becoming divided and was treating the Lord’s supper no longer as the time of rememberence that it should but rather they were treating it as a time to feast while others starved.

All of Grace

As we continue to read through the book of Galatians Brother Danny spoke of salvation by grace through faith. Pual in this book spoke of how no one could be justified by keeping the law and that he had been “crucified with Christ.” As we go thruoghout our lives we need to remember that we are new creatures in Christ.

United We Stand

In today’s message, Brother Danny shared the importance of unity in the body of Christ, using the text from Galatains 2:6-10. In this passage, we can see the truth that when the church is united IN CHRIST, there are no superstars in the kingdom. All members are important to the mission of the kingdom. As we each work to fulfil our role and our calling in the kingdom, we will find an increase in compassion for others.

Confirmation

This morning, Brother Danny continues to guide us through the book of Galatians, chapter 1, verses 18-24. In this passage, we see three truths concerning the faithful in Christ. First, the faithful know the wisdom of being connected to other believers. The Christian life is a life of community with others. Secondly, the faithful understand the importance of continuing service. The Christian life does not have a retirement plan. And finally, the faithful are confirmed by their actions and beliefs as they work together.

Jesus' Call

This morning, Bill shares with us the importance of following Jesus’ call in our lives. Using the examples of Andrew, Peter, Philip, and Nathaniel, as well as examples from his own life, he shows that, while Jesus may call us into paths that we never would have expected for our lives, it is important to remember that he will always walk with us when we respond to his call.
