Bob Smart visits from the United States to teach on Mark 15. The death of Jesus was one of the darkest moments in history, but in that darkness, God worked the greatest miracle of all time. He revealed his love and rescued His people from eternal darkness, and now we can live with him in light.
Sometimes it can be hard to recognize God’s work in the world. It can be tempting to think He was active a long time ago, but not much happens today. This, of course, is not the case, and Trevor Webb takes a look at 1 Peter 4 to identify what God is busy doing.
John 21 describes the last miracle of Jesus. It wasn’t big, it wasn’t massive, it was about fish, breakfast, and community. Trevor Webb explains why this is important and what makes Jesus unique:
Guest preacher John McGimpsey teaches on Ephesians 6:10-20 and explores why we need the armor of God and what it means to put it on.
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. 14 Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. 16 In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; 17 and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, 18 praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints, 19 and also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains, that I may declare it boldly, as I ought to speak.”
