    We’re going to begin in Philippians. Worship is very important in developing our relationship with the Lord. God wants us to understand that if you’re going to mature from Point A to Point B, worship is going to be a very important part of that. And if you want to mature from Point B to Point C, more

    Contributed by Dr. Jerry N. Watts on May 21, 2011
    based on 1 rating

  • Divine Providence Part 4 - Justice, Mercy, And The Plan Of Salvation Series

    Contributed by Sam Mccormick on Nov 10, 2018

    Justice and Mercy are polar opposities. Then how does God's plan for salvation satisfy the demands of both?

    This is Part 4 of an 8-part series, which was originally developed for a 13-week adult class, with some of the parts taking more or less than a 45-minute class period.

  • Playing Favorites (James 2:1-4) Series

    Contributed by Darrell Ferguson on Aug 19, 2021

    Are you more likely to be friendly toward someone at church who is attractive than someone who is repulsive in some way? Do you look with more favor on wealthy people than homeless people? This passage teaches us how to look at people the way God looks at them.

    Command: No Favoritism One of the most unsettling things that can happen when I read the Bible is when I discover that something is especially important to God, and it is not really a big deal in my thinking. For whatever reason, there are certain sins that we are all very aware of, and there are more

    Contributed by Darrell Ferguson on Aug 28, 2021

    We tend to disguise our sinful favoritism under the guise of loving our neighbor. Favoritism seems like love towards those we favor, but James shows that it’s really a violation of the royal law of love.

    James 2:8 If you really keep the royal law found in Scripture, “Love your neighbor as yourself,” you are doing right. 9 But if you show favoritism, you sin and are convicted by the law as lawbreakers. The Importance of the Command Is anybody here interested in seeing the most important more
