Trusting Scripture


 

Can we trust Scripture? This question is a popular one, and it’s answer is an important one. We can be confident that Scripture is reliable and relevant to our lives today.

 

In this series, we will examine three tough topics often thought about (if not asked) by those inside and outside of the church. If God is so loving, where is there so much evil and suffering in the world? How can we trust the Bible? Is abortion wrong? There are no easy answers, but Scripture helps us navigate these questions with wisdom, grace, and intelligence.

Overcoming Distractions


 

As we discussed last week, the closer we get to completing the work God has called us to, the harder the enemy will fight to stop us. Nehemiah was faced with the distractions, rumors, and attempts to get him to compromise. His response to this opposition is something we can learn from as we are sure to face some distractions of our own. Let’s learn how we finish strong!

 

What are you doing to make a difference in your world? Sometimes we just aren’t sure what we are supposed to be doing, and other times we just don’t really know how to do it. As we dig into the book of Nehemiah, we will see what it looks like to have a God-given burden, how to take practical steps to begin acting on that burden, and how to overcome obstacles and distractions that are sure to come when we start doing God’s work. The time is now!

Responsible Riches


 

Christians often think they have a solid grasp on managing their wealth. James warns us that the improper view and use of wealth is dangerous. We should be seeking to understand God’s way of handling this wealth instead.

 

Often referred to as the New Testament Proverbs, the book of James is full of practical life lessons for Christ-followers. Through the examination of these life lessons, we will learn how to take what’s inside of us as Believers and begin to live it out in our lives on a daily basis.

Respond


 

After we embrace Radical Patience, Radical Prayer and remember God’s Radical Promise when dealing with trials, James now presents us with outward responses that are a byproduct of our saving faith in Jesus Christ.
