Understanding Sin

Genesis 3 – What is truth? How do I determine right and wrong? Who am I? These are the fundamental questions, which define our existence.  If we live our lives on the basis of false answers to these questions our existence will be inauthentic and incomplete. That’s what sin does, it distorts our very person and provides false answers to life’s biggest questions. We need to understand sin so we can understand (and defeat) the root of what desires to take us down.

Praying Like John

1 John 5:14-15 – There is an old and well worn axiom in our culture, which states that, "anything worth doing is worth doing well." That is to say that when we engage in an enterprise, we should take care to do it with the highest degree of effectiveness we can muster. This is especially true, or ought to be, about prayer. In 1 John 5:14-15 the apostle John instructs us in a kind of prayer, which is most effective. Listen to learn how to pray this kind of prayer.

Praying like David

Psalm 18 – The Psalms are a treasure chest of prayer. David doesn’t hold back when he’s talking to the Lord. In Psalm 18 David is under intense oppression and suffering from grave injustices that others are seeking to do against him. How will the Lord respond? Maybe you’ve found yourself in a similar situation. Turn to Psalm 18 and see how David prays and God answers.

Praying Like Jesus

John 17: Do you think you can learn a thing or two from Jesus on the topic of prayer? In John 17 He gives us 4 prayer requests: 1. Glorify your Son 2. Protect the saints 3. Sanctify them 4. May they be one. Let’s study Jesus as he leads us before the throne through prayer.

A Refreshing Charge

2 Timothy 3:14-4:5: In his final charge to Timothy, Paul exhorts him to “preach the Word.” But it’s not just for Timothy but for us too. Paul charges us to know where the Word comes from, how it equips us, and finally he challenges us to let the Bible shape the public conversation we engage in.
