Christians generally make 2 mistakes when it comes to how they think about Satan - they either attribute too much to him or they don't attribute enough to him. The Bible is clear that Satan is a real, personal being who is hell-bent on opposing Christ and His Kingdom. In this sermon, we look at 1 Peter 5:8-9 and see who Satan is and how we can avoid and overcome his temptations.

In 1 Peter 5:6-7, we see that humility is the key to enduring the inevitable sufferings and difficulties of this life - what you might think of as anxiety-inducing situations. There’s a lot of hope in these verses and a lot of help for finding peace of heart and mind in the midst of our anxieties. 

Sunday May 21, 2023

In this sermon, we look at 1 Peter 5:5 and Hebrews 13:17 and see the two characteristics of a local church family that makes it through the trials and sufferings of this life - submission and humility.

One of the ways God has gifted His church is by giving them men qualified to care for His people. In this sermon, we look at 1 Peter 5:1-4 and see the connection between these instructions to elders and Peter's teaching regarding suffering and trials at the end of chapter 4. Then, we see 6 truths regarding a church's elders from this text and other Scriptures.

If 1 Peter 4:12-16 prepares us to face trials and sufferings well, then verses 17-19 help us understand to some degree why God still ordains and allows trials and sufferings in the first place. Trials and sufferings have a deep function in the plans and purposes of God in this life, and our goal in this sermon is to see that today.

In 1 Peter 4:12-16, Peter gives us three wrong responses to suffering - surprise, retaliation, and shame. In this sermon on verses 14-16, we see how the covenant blessing of being insulted for Christ helps us to do good to those who insult us rather than retaliate against them and to glorify God in the name of Christ rather than be ashamed of the name of Christ.

Peter's aim in this final section of 1 Peter, which begins in chapter 4 vs 12, is to prepare Christians to face suffering so that they are able to keep the faith through the suffering and come out on the other side - which is sharing in the glory of Christ when His glory is fully and finally revealed. Verses 12-13 shows us the inevitably of suffering and how Christians ought to respond to it, namely not being surprised by it, but rejoicing in the midst of it.

Greg Thomas preaches from Acts 5:33-42. In this sermon, Greg takes a close look at Gamaliel's counsel to the Pharisees in how they will deal with Peter and the rest of the Apostles, who refuse to stop talking about Jesus despite warnings, imprisonments, and even beatings. Greg shows how God's sovereignty over even seemingly unrelated events prepares the way for the Gospel from Jerusalem to Judea and Samaria and to all the ends of the earth. Greg exhorts us that the God of the Bible is One who is worthy to be trusted and worshipped.

In Philippians 3, the Apostle Paul writes that he wants "to know Christ and the power of the resurrection." In this sermon, we look at what Paul says kept him from knowing Christ and how that applies to us today. We also see that the power of the resurrection is a justifying, securing, and sustaining power for the believer. 

Sunday Apr 02, 2023

In Ephesians 5:22-33, Paul teaches us the marriage is a living, breathing analogy for Christ's relationship with His Church. When we look at the instructions in this passage, we get instructions for marriage and we also see how Christ relates to His church and how His church ought to relate to Him.
