November 6th News: Final Assurances

November 4, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

Series:  1 John

This week, we conclude our study of 1 John. In this final passage we will see John summarize the entire letter– hitting on 5 final assurances or certainties we have as followers of Jesus. In a world that is anti-Jesus, it is important to remember what is true about us as Children of God. I know that I need to be reminded often!

To prepare, read 1 John 5:13-21.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

October 30th News: The Testimony of God

October 28, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

Series:  1 John

Last week John told us that we should have confidence because we have overcome Satan, death, and the world because of Jesus. But how do we know that Jesus is actually who he says he is?

John addresses that incredibly important question in our passage this Sunday.

To prepare, read 1 John 5:5-12.

Just a reminder: If you are preparing a box for Operation Christmas Child, you need to turn it in this Sunday!

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

October 23rd News: Overcomers

October 20, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

Series:  1 John

Do you feel like life is a battle that seems to be consuming you? Do you find yourself worn down by different trials and challenges. Do you worry about the future? Do you feel like Norm on the old sitcom Cheers who responded this way when asked, “How ya doin’ Norm?!?” and he responded: “It’s a dod eat dog world out there and I’m wearing milk bone underwear.”

If so, John has some words of wisdom for you this week. (If not, come anyway, you feel that way soon!) We have more going for us than we can image!

To prepare, read 1 John 5:1-6.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

October 16th News: God’s Love

October 13, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

Series:  1 John

You may notice that this looks a lot like last week’s post… That’s because it is (except for these words). The storm cancelled our service, but we are back this week to pick up in our study of 1 John.

Well, here we go again. John is going to use the words “love one another” 3 times in the passage we are looking at this Sunday.

Why do you think he keeps repeating this? I think it is because we have a hard time doing it.

To prepare, read 1 John 4:7-21… Then read it again. These are powerful words that we can only understand with the help of the Holy Spirit.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

October 2nd News: Test the Spirits

October 1, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

Series:  1 John

This Sunday we will continue our series on the Book of 1 John.

There are a lot of voices around us trying to get our attention and trying to communicate information. How can you tell if the message they are sending is true or good?

It sounds easy to do, but, in reality, it isn’t. John is going to help us learn how to “test the spirits”.

To prepare read 1 John 4:1-6

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

September 25th News: Love One Another

September 23, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

Series:  1 John

This Sunday we will continue our series on the Book of 1 John.

The title of this week’s sermon bring us back to a common theme throughout the letter of 1 John– and the entire Bible. Although we are quite familiar with this concept, I believe we need to continually be reminded of this powerful and challenging command… Especially in a world that is broken by sin and infiltrated by evil.

So, how are you doing in this area? That’s what John asks us in our scripture passage this week.

To prepare, read 1 John 3:10-24 and Genesis 4:1-16.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

September 18th News: Jesus Overcomes the World

September 15, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

Series:  1 John

This Sunday we will continue our series on the Book of 1 John.

For the last 2 weeks, John has been warning his readers about the world– a way of living in rebellion against God and his truth. It is a place filled with temptation and deception that can distract and confuse every one of us.

Yet John wants us to have joy and hope in the midst of this. How is that possible? We will hear the answer this Sunday.

To prepare, read 1 John 2:28-3:10.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

September 11th News: Don’t Be Deceived

September 8, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

Series:  1 John

This Sunday we will continue our series on the Book of 1 John.

Have you ever heard about the “antichrist”? John mentions him in the passage we are looking at this Sunday. It is important for us to understand that we live in a world that is opposition to and rebellion against God. That is one of the reasons John tells us in 1 John 2:15, “Do not love the world or anything in the world.

In 1 John 2:18-29, John is going to warn us not to be deceived by the people of the world. This is an important topic in our culture today. Each of us is bombarded by so much information and so many opinions it can be difficult to identify and follow the truth. It was the same in John’s time. So, how can we prevent being deceived by these different voices we hear every day?

That’s what John we teach us this Sunday. To prepare, read 1 John 2:18-29 and see if you can discover some of his secrets to a firm and unshakable faith.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

September 4th News: Don’t Love The World

September 2, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

Series:  1 John

This Sunday we will continue our series on the Book of 1 John.

We live in a culture and a world that defines success, purpose, and fulfillment in a much different way than the Bible does. How do we walk through our lives faithful to the things of God when we are surrounding by a system that is in rebellion against God?

It is not an easy task… But it is one we can accomplish and, in fact are called to do. This week, John will share some thoughts with us about how we should relate to the world around us. They are challenging words, but they are truths that can set us free from bondage in which we often find ourselves ensnared.

To prepare, read 1 John 2:15-17.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug
