Let Us Pursue the Knowledge of the LordDate posted: July 17, 2016
by Jim Zes – Hosea 6:1-11
Godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation. But what happens when you expect forgiveness without repenting?
This was the situation for the people of Israel. In the book of Hosea, we see that they were completely given over to idolatry and harlotry. In the face of God’s discipline, the Israelites thought that merely returning to the prescribed sacrificial offerings would solve their problems. But God rejected that kind of “repentance.” It was as fleeting as “a morning cloud” and “the early dew” that fades away with the first rays of sunlight. Repentance must result in a change of heart and a change in behavior.
God desires mercy and knowledge of Him more than sacrifice.
The Christian’s Certainty in an Uncertain WorldDate posted: July 10, 2016
Mr. Martin – I John 5:13-21
Life in this fallen world is filled with uncertainty – there are few guarantees and little we can depend upon. As the Apostle John brings his letter to a close he focuses on five things that a genuine Christian can be certain of: 1) Jesus Christ is the true God, 2) we belong to God, 3) eternal life in Christ, 4) God hears our prayers, 5) God protects His saints. These certainties provide believers with assurance and encouragement in an uncertain world.
Our Obligation to GodDate posted: June 26, 2016
Dan Ford – Luke 20:20-26
When Jesus was asked whether the people of Judea should pay taxes to Caesar, He had a remarkable response. Noting a coin with Caesar’s image on its face, Jesus replied that they should “render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” This sufficed to silence Jesus’ enemies at the time but opened up a timeless issue among later Christians regarding our exact obligations to God versus those to the state.
