The word of God says, “Great peace comes to those who love your
law,” Psalm 119:165.
Welcome to our second part in our study of the peace of God. Take
your Bible and have that ready as we're going to study together about the
marvelous subject of God's peace.
The word of God says, “Great peace comes to those who love your

“Enter by the narrow gate for wide is the gate and broad is the way
that leads to destruction and many there are who go in by,” Matthew
7:13-14. Jesus here made it abundantly clear that the road that leads to
eternal destruction is a wide path, and abroad gate, and many are going
down that path. Who is it exactly that is going down that wide path to
destruction? Why is it that God is going to send them to eternal
‘Though He was a son, yet He learned obedience by the things which
He suffered, and having been perfected He became the author of eternal
salvation to all who obey Him.’
Welcome to our study of Jesus, the author of eternal salvation. As we
think about the idea of Jesus being the author of eternal salvation, this
word for author is a very unique word.
An evil king asked a great question, ‘Is there any word from the
Lord?’ Jeremiah 37:17.
As we think today about God's truth and how it's been revealed to us
and what it teaches, we need understand God has spoken. There is word
from God. That word is found for us in the Bible.
Paul repeated a similar question in Romans 4:3 when he asked
“What does the Scripture say?” What does the Bible say? Has God
revealed Himself to us? Has He revealed His will to us? If so, where is that
will? What does it teach us about how to live and how to do the things that
God wants us to do?
Are you sure that you're saved? I'm not asking did somebody tell you
that you were saved, or do you ‘feel’ like you're saved.
Are you sure that you're saved? Do you know beyond a shadow of a
doubt that you are right with God and that if your life comes to an end,
you'll spend eternity in heaven with the father?
In Psalm 8:4 we find that compelling and ever humbling question that
the psalmist asked. “What is man? God, what is man that you care for him,
or the son of Man that you look after him?”
As I think about this wonderful question, it humbles us to realize there
is an answer in Scripture as to why God cares for me and for you.
Why does He care for me? Why does He care for you? Why am I a
big part and why are you a part of the thought of God? What is it about man
that makes him special and unique from everything else that our God
The Bible says, “God is not the author of confusion but of peace,” 1
In a world filled with conflict, disagreement, war, and chaos, how
wonderful it is to know that the God of the Bible is the true source of peace!
The peace of God is clearly seen throughout the Scripture. The Bible
says in Luke 2:15 that when Christ Jesus came into the world the Angels
proclaimed ‘Peace on earth, goodwill toward men.’ Philippians 4:7, the
scripture says “The peace of God that even surpasses all understanding
can guard our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.” Throughout scripture the
peace of God is a wonderful subject that every Christian can take comfort
In the gospel of John Jesus said “My sheep hear My voice, and I
know them and they follow Me,” John 10:27.
What does it really mean to hear the voice of Jesus? Get your Bible
as we let God's word answer this very important question for us today.
As Jesus said in John 10:27 ‘My sheep, My followers, they'll hear My
voice. I know them, and they follow Me.’ John 10 is the beautiful words
about Jesus being the shepherd and His people being the sheep.
Now friend we pose the question from Scripture today: What does it
mean to hear the voice of Jesus?
“Let all things be done decently and in order” (1 Cor. 14:40). Welcome to our study of
church order. In this series of topical lessons we will be discussing the nature of God,
church order, and various other topics that will encourage us to live faithfully before God
and to live in accord with the teaching of the New Testament. We first need to ask, “What
is the church?” Too many times we get the idea that the church is the building, or that
the church is present only at times when its members are assembled. But in reality the
church is the people.
“Give unto the Lord the glory due to His name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness”
(Ps. 29:2). Welcome to our study of exalting Christ through the Gospel. The child of God
has the privilege and the responsibility of glorifying the name of God in all that he says and
does. In fact, that is why I am here. And there is why you are here on this Earth. God said
in Isaiah 43:7, “Everyone who is called by My name, whom I have created for My glory; I
have formed him, yes, I have made him.” God created us to laud and magnify His holy
name by our lives and actions
The psalmist said, “My iniquities have gone over my head; like a heavy burden they are too
heavy for me” (Ps. 38:4). Welcome to our study of the high cost of sin. We live in a world
that acts like sin is pleasurable, and where it’s fun to name things that are sinful. People
just view sin as part of life. Sin is just a way of living. Sin is commonplace. But God has
made it clear in the New Testament that He wants His people to understand the high cost
of sin, and to not take it for granted so that they recognize it for what it is. Today I want
us to consider what sin will cost you.
“And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of
bread, and in prayers” (Acts 2:42). Welcome to our study of continuing in the apostles’
doctrine. As we examine this subject, let us first realize that we are not talking about fol-
lowing something that the apostles themselves created. When we follow the apostles’ doc-
trine, we are not following some sort of “apostles’ creed (or what is known as “the did-
ache”—the teaching of the twelve”).
In Matthew 26:28, as Jesus instituted the Lord's Supper among His
followers, when He took the fruit of the vine He said, “This is my blood of
the new covenant that was shed for many for the forgiveness of sins.”
Every person who reads the words of Jesus and looks into the life of
Jesus realizes the significance of the blood of Christ in the New Testament.
Today we ask you a very important question: How does a person
contact the saving blood of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ?
It's evident from Ephesians 5:25 that Jesus loved the church deeply.
The Bible tells husbands “love your wives as Christ also loved the church
and gave Himself for her.”
Today we're going to think about the love that each person ought to
have for the Lord's church, what makes that love so strong, and how do we
show that love for the church in each one of our lives.
What does the Bible say that a person has to do to become a
Christian? There could be no greater question all the world than the
question found in Acts 16:30-31, ‘What must I do to be saved?”
We hope that you'll get your Bible as we're going to think about what
the word of God says concerning the matter of salvation.
As we think about the great question, ‘What must I do to be saved?’
how does one become a Christian?
The Bible says in 1 John 1:7 that ‘if we walk in the light as He is in the
light, we have fellowship one with another and the blood of His Son Jesus
Christ cleanses us from all sin.’
The word of God clearly teaches that in Christ, Christians have
fellowship. But what is fellowship? That's a word we hear a lot, but are we
familiar with the biblical idea of fellowship?
What exactly is the word fellowship all about? What does it mean?
What do we mean when Christians say ‘we have fellowship’? What exactly
are we talking about?Read More
