Standing Firm on the Promises of God: Week 5

Standing Firm on the Promises of God: Week 5

September 30, 2018 | Kyle Brenon | Romans 8:26-28

Do you ever worry that you have made such a mess of things, that there is no way they could ever be turned around? Or have you ever felt like you somehow wandered down a trail that suddenly ended without warning, and now you are destined to wander the wilderness forever? Maybe, it just seems like no matter what you do, everything is stacked against you and you just can’t catch a break. When we find ourselves in impossible situations, do we panic, do we furiously try to work our way out of it, or do we trust the God of the impossible?

Standing Firm on the Promises of God: Week 4

September 23, 2018 | Jake Mitchell | 2 Corinthians 12:7-10

So to keep me from becoming conceited because of the surpassing greatness of the revelations,[a] a thorn was given me in the flesh, a messenger of Satan to harass me, to keep me from becoming conceited. 8 Three times I pleaded with the Lord about this, that it should leave me. 9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 10 For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong. (2 Corinthians 12:7-10)

Standing Firm on the Promises of God: Week 3

September 16, 2018 | Kyle Brenon | James 4:6-10

This week we continue in part 3 of our sermon series “Standing Firm on the Promises of God.” In this series we are looking to the rock solid promises of God in order to find a firm foundation on which to stand. Our adversary lies to us every chance he gets, and if we aren’t anchoring ourselves in God’s word, we are quickly and easily led astray by lies often disguised as truth. This week we look at James 4:6-10 where God’s word promises us that when we humble ourselves before our gracious and loving God, good things happen!

"EXILES" with a Living Hope: Wk 3

1 Wives, in the same way submit yourselves to your own husbands so that, if any of them do not believe the word, they may be won over without words by the behavior of their wives, 2 when they see the purity and reverence of your lives. 3 Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. 4 Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight. 5 For this is the way the holy women of the past who put their hope in God used to adorn themselves. They submitted themselves to their own husbands, 6 like Sarah, who obeyed Abraham and called him her lord. You are her daughters if you do what is right and do not give way to fear. 7 Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers. 8 Finally, all of you, be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble. (1Peter 3:1-8)
