Jul 03, 2022 — Elisha Freeman The book of Romans is considered the cathedral of the Christian faith. If this is the case, then Romans 8 is the sanctuary of the cathedral. It is the Bible chapter of the NT that provides instant comfort, strength, and encouragement. This morning we begin a two month walk through this powerful chapter for timely lessons.
Jun 26, 2022 Adam Hudson —
Why is it so difficult for many Christians to develop a strong faith in God? The one thing that is so essential for every Christian is having a strong faith in God and Jesus Christ. My goal today is to try and provide us with an understanding of the things that hampers the growth of our faith in Jehovah God and His Son Jesus Christ. And provide the things that increase our faith.
Jun 19, 2022 Elisha Freeman — As we arrive to the final lesson in our series entitled ‘Divergent: A Study through the Sermon on the Mount’, we come to the most challenging and convicting of Jesus’ teachings: loving our enemies. If we are to make a difference that God intends for us to make, then it will begin and end with love. Love for each other, love for others, especially love for enemies. This morning Jesus will remind us of the power placed in our hands to make a difference if we so choose.
Apr 17, 2022 Elisha Freeman — It has been at least two weeks since Jesus has been resurrected and Peter has not had an opportunity to speak with him. Does this mean Jesus is done with Peter? Can Peter return from his denial of Jesus when he was arrested? Does this mean the things that Jesus promised Peter in Matthew 16:15-18 are now going to someone else? Is there any hope for Peter? This morning we will read through the third resurrection appearance to answer our questions.
Apr 10, 2022 — Elisha Freeman Most of the recorded sermons found in the Book of Acts focus on the resurrection of Jesus. The resurrection is the bedrock of the Christian faith and the Bible provides evidence that it did happen. What practical implications should the resurrection have on our lives today and for the future? What decisions should we make today? We will seek to answer these and more in this morning’s lesson.
Mar 13, 2022 Elisha Freeman — Oswald Chambers once said ‘All heaven is interested in the cross, all hell is terribly afraid of it, while men are the only beings who more or less ignore its meaning.’ We continue with our series that focus’ on the disciples of Jesus who are committed to following Him. If we are going to follow Jesus then a cross is the path. How can we become a cross shaped people? This morning we will explore this question and have Jesus’ answer challenge us.
Jan 23, 2022 — Notre Dame Football coach Knute Rockney is credited with saying, ‘When the going gets tough, the tough get going’. This proverb speaks of being resilient in the face of adversity and challenges. What happens when the tough cannot get going? What happens when our strength has failed us or is failing us? How do we respond? We turn to a powerful passage that reminds us that our strength is found in the ‘surpassing power of God’.
Dec 19, 2021 – Elisha Freeman While the Christmas season is full of joy, there are many of us who find it to be a time of great struggle. The birth of Jesus is not full of angels singing, wise men searching and worshipping, or a husband and wife being full of faith. There is weeping, lament, hurt, darkness, and other unfortunate realities. What do we learn from this? What is God’s response and answer? These and more we will seek to study and allow the Bible to answer.
