"Weary? toward being refreshed" is the second installment in a three-series study of 2 Corinthians 1-7:1. At this point the text (2 Corinthians 4:1) begins to stress the weariness and discouragement that we must successfully deal with. It becomes very practical in terms of weathering such seasons.
This series is the first installment of a study of 2 Corinthians 1-7:1 that will help our people understand life under the New Covenant and in the Spirit. This section of Scripture provides the theological underpinnings that our philosophy of ministry is based on at Red Mountain.
"He is the radiance of the glory of God...." — Hebrews 1:3
Goads and Nails is centered around the book of Luke. There are a number of occasions when Jesus utters something extremely profound with very few words throughout Luke's Gospel account. These are proverbial sayings that provide valuable wisdom. Each week we will identify one of these proverbial sayings spoken by Jesus and we will describe how it will transform us.
Our current series, “WE, The King and His Kingdom," is a six-week study in the book of Luke. As in the past, our fall series is an all-church devotional that involves journaling together as a church on a regular basis. Our devotional this fall will guide us through the Gospel according to Luke. Together, we will spend six weeks studying Luke together as a church on Sundays, as well as throughout the week in our devotional journals.
This series entitled, GOD, will teach a practical theology of God. The message will be that He is and does things in a certain way, and does them through us a certain way. We don’t want to lose sight of who God is, because in the end all His power is aimed at making us like Him. “God” will speak to your brain and into your day-to-day life, because who you’ll become is rooted solidly in who He is. What you’ll experience along the way is too.
The life we’re called to is a learned life. The tone of the series will be instructional just like Paul’s is as he passes along the applications of the truth he presented in the first part of the book. The emphasis is on how we approach things differently—with the truth in hand so as to “walk worthy of Christ,” or in a way that gives credibility to the gospel. Join us in this study. We have many resources that you can use, which will help you go deeper into God's word.
When I was a boy I thought a steward was a cook! It was logical in my mind since the word was obviously formed from stew. At church I learned that whenever we talked about stewardship, it was a talk about money. It’s too bad that most people think like I did. It is not just about money, though money is a part of stewardship. You will learn a lot that can impact you in great ways.
There was a period of time after the writings of the Old Testament prophets where there was no new revelation from God. This is sometimes described as 400 years of "silence." Then, Jesus was born and as "the Word made flesh," Jesus revealed all we need to know about God, salvation, and how God will recapture the life that was lost because of sin. As we teach throughout the Advent Season, there are certain themes that will be drawn out.
