By Grace Through Faith in Jesus Christ

Peter stood up and said to them, “Brothers, you know that in the early days God made a choice among you, that by my mouth the Gentiles should hear the word of the gospel and believe. And God, who knows the heart, bore witness to them, by giving them the Holy Spirit just as he did to us, and he made no distinction between us and them, having cleansed their hearts by faith. … But we believe that we will be saved through the grace of the Lord Jesus, just as they will.” Acts 15:7-11
* Can you comment on John 13:35? “By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” * I’m having a struggle in my life and it’s around James 2:26. I’m full of fear.

New Heart – New Life

In any situation like this we always ask: “how do we fix this?” And we look to legislation, forgetting that this hatred flows from the heart. It comes from a belief system that leads to actions. All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. There is no one righteous. Do you believe that each person has worth … that we are all equal at the foot of the cross and are you willing to live that out?”
* Would you clarify in Acts 20:22 where it says Paul was bound in the spirit (NASB) to go to Jerusalem. * George asks about getting remarried after two failed marriages. * Is it OK for a Christian to see a psychiatrist?
* Why would Jesus tell Nicodemus, a man who was obviously already born naturally, that he has to be born naturally before he can be born of the spirit?

Called to The Tree of Life

When we look at the news and see what’s going on it can be very scary. We don’t know what to think. When Adam and Eve partook of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil that brought evil into this world. There is this constant tension between good and evil. Paul wrote: “… For I do not understand my own actions. For I do not do what I want, but I do the very thing I hate. Now if I do what I do not want, I agree with the law, that it is good. …” 7:14-24 God has called us to the Tree of Life! * Is today’s contemporary Christian music wrong?
* What is real worship?
* Will the Holy Spirit still be here after the rapture?
* Can you imagine a world without the Holy Spirit? I ponder that thought and WOW it’s not good.
* My mom has advanced Dementia. I am in charge of her finances. Should I tithe her income from Social Security?

Titus: Session 2

Titus was tasked with putting into order the church in Crete. Crete was known for its degenerate culture. This culture was negatively influencing the believers there. As a result, specific qualities were defined for the elders of this new church. Also the warning was given to not let false teaching take hold in the church from the insubordinate, empty talkers and deceivers. The utmost concern for the church in Crete was the message of grace – that it remain pure.

Obedient from The Heart

“For the love of Christ controls us, because we have concluded this: that one has died for all, therefore all have died; and he died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised. From now on, therefore, we regard no one according to the flesh.” 2 Corinthians 5:14-16 * JoAnn calls to update us on her fight with COVID-19.
* “Watch yourselves, so that you may not lose what we have worked for, but may win a full reward.” 2 John 1:8 What is the reward?

A Brand New Identity

There’s no other way for us to be saved apart from the grace of God. We’ve fallen short and there’s no way for us to work our way out of our position of a sinner. Only Jesus Christ could make us forgiveness and alive to live by faith in him. “For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures …” 1 Corinthians 15:1-11 * Can you please explain the “him” in 2 Thessalonians 2:7-8? * How can fasting be for today if we are complete in Christ?
