Real Religion – James 1:26-27

8.12.18 AUDIO AND SLIDE TRANSITIONS

This week in James, we look at three key questions that test whether we truly practice religion honoring to God. As we examine these questions, let us ask our God to change us that we might honor Him with our speech, our love, and our lives.

Instruments of Love – 2 Timothy 3:1-5

4.15.18 AUDIO AND SLIDE TRANSITIONS

While the world needs biblical love, in the last days the self-seeking love of the world will penetrate the church. This week as we continue our study in 2 Timothy, we take a unique look at love by going to 2 Timothy 3:1-5. As we do, we are challenged to pursue biblical love.

 

Love that Forgives – Philemon 18-25

12.3.17 AUDIO AND SLIDE TRANSITION

After Paul gives Philemon four love incentives for reconciliation with Onesimus, he paints a vivid picture of forgiveness. Paul assumes Onesimusʼ debt as his own, reminds Philemon of Philemonʼs personal debt, and in faith urges Philemon to prepare to receive him after his imprisonment. Here we see a rich parallel to Christ’s work on our behalf and His coming return. Listen to learn what this episode from the early church tells us about our need to forgive.
