We continue in chapter 4, and look at Paul’s charge for us to be changed – truly transformed – in Godliness. How is Godliness demonstrated, and what separates that genuine Godliness from surface-deep goodness? Paul also gives us some key guidance in how true Godly transformation should show itself in the outflow of our priorities and habits.
Our friend Pete from Grace Valley Church join us, and takes us through Mark 1:1-8, and looks at where God is, even when He is silent when we call out to Him. Often, when we call out to God, we are really asking God to reveal Himself on our terms – we are looking for good news on a superficial level, not actually wanting to encounter God. In looking at where God is in times of silence, we also need to look in the mirror and examine where our own hearts are. To better check our hearts, Pete takes us through 3 points from the preaching and life of John the Baptist we can apply.
For additional reading, look at Psalm 88.
Vaclav explores Psalm 107 addressing how God delivers his people out of all of their wandering, rebellious and sinful ways when they call on him.
Nevin explores Psalm 94 to address where God is when His people face oppression. God will prevail against His enemies and bring rescue for His people.
This week, Nevin continued our series in Psalms, while Brad and his family are on sabbatical. We walked through Psalm 51, and looked at how God is with us even though we sin, and how he cleanses and washes us of that sin, through Jesus’ death.
This week, our intern Vaclav took a brief interlude from our study in Psalms, to break down some of the ways God has been present in his life and his story of Gods work within it.
This week, our intern Vaclav continued our series in Psalms, while Brad and his family are on sabbatical. We walked through Psalm 19, and looked at how God reveals himself in his creation, and his word, and how those things call us to response.
This week, our intern Vaclav continued our series in Psalms, while Brad and his family are on sabbatical. We walked through Psalm 16, and looked at how David viewed and called to God, and what we can learn about our own affections, and how we hold God in our lives.
This week we started our summary study in Psalms while we take a break from Leviticus. We take a look at Psalm 2, and what it has to say about both God and Culture. How does God compare Himself to culture, and what can we learn about our culture when comparing it to God? How does this apply to our lives?
