Walk in Love – Eph. 5:1-2

12/17/17 p.m. sermon

Speaker: Justin P. Sivley

Love is too important for a Christian to ignore. Love is emphasized as a required quality of God’s people throughout the Bible, and it is no different today than it was 2000 years ago. Christians are to walk in love. We are to walk in love because we have been loved. We are to love God with all that we are, and we are to love our neighbor as ourself.

Our Wonderful Savior – Gal. 4:4-5

12/17/17 a.m. sermon

Speaker: Justin P. Sivley
“A Wonderful Savior is Jesus My Lord.” So begins a favorite song about the Christ who died for each and every one of us.  At a time when many are mindful of the birth of Christ, we take some time to study about the wonderful Christ who gave himself for us, who rose from the dead, ascended into heaven, and is coming again.

Put on the New Self – Eph. 4:25-32

12/10/17 p.m. sermon

Speaker: Justin P. Sivley
Being a Christian is about more than going to church on Sunday.  Being a Christian requires that we putt off the old self, the way we once lived, and put on the new self, to live as a new creation in Christ.  In Eph. 4:25-32, the Apostle Paul gives some very specific and practical examples of how the new self lives.

Our Loving Father – Lk. 15:11-32

12/10/17 a.m. sermon

Speaker: Justin P. Sivley
Fathers are often not perfect.  In fact, fathers often let their children down.  Some even shun the responsibility entirely.  But God is our Heavenly Father, and no matter what men may do or say to us in our lives, we can trust without a doubt that God will never let us down.  He is our Wonderful Father.

The Heart of the Matter: The Christian’s Attitude Toward Self

12/10/17 Sunday Bible Class
Speaker: Matthew Burleson

Jesus said that the second great commandment was to “love your neighbor as yourself” (Mk. 12:31) and that we ought to treat others the way that we ourselves desire to be treated (Mt. 7:12).  But the New Testament also teaches clearly that we ought not to think too highly of ourselves (Rom. 12:3; Phil. 2:3-4).  So it is worth our time to examine together what the Christian’s attitude toward self ought to be.
