In our continuing study in the book of Proverbs, Alan taught about Proverbs on Righteousness a couple of weeks ago. To listen to this message, simply click on the audio player below. I’ve also included Alan’s outline and some notes with Scripture references linked to Bible Gateway or the NET Bible (which takes you to the chapter, so you’ll need to scroll down to the specific verses).
Proverbs on Righteousness
Introduction: Righteousness Defined
God sees righteousness as to be free of guilt or sin. For man, it is walking the morally straight path.
The third Sunday of April had Alan taking us back into the book of Proverbs. To listen to this message, simply click play on the audio player below. Also included are Alan’s outline and some notes with links to Scripture at either the NETBible (which Alan references) or Bible Gateway. Enjoy!
Review: The key attribute of godly wisdom is a fear of God – Proverbs 1:7 (NET Bible)
The phrase “fear of God” means to live life in respect to God for who He is and what He can do. It’s to align our attitudes, thoughts, and actions to God’s will, as stated in Scripture. An example of a “fear of God” would be Jesus’ words in Matthew 7:24-28.
Wisdom is a key attribute of God
Wisdom is seen as existing with God before creation and even orders creation itself.
While we, unfortunately, did not get the message recorded from Easter Sunday, I am posting Alan’s outline and notes with links to the Scriptures on Bible Gateway. It was a beautiful message about what it means to be a Christian. Enjoy!
Two Aspects of the Gospel
The objective aspect, which involves the actual reality of the person and works of Christ. Specifically, this week the focus is on the cross and resurrection as actual events that occurred. The objective aspect is the Truth.
The subjective aspect, which involves how we appropriate and benefit from the realities of the person and work of Christ. One example of this aspect is understanding and appropriating the truth that the risen Christ is alive to live in and through us. But for that to happen, we need to be aware of and act upon that truth. The subjective aspect is how you apply the truth to your life.
We will focus today on five elements of the subjective aspect. In light of the crucifixion and the resurrection:
Let’s be clear: we are all sinners. There is no such things as those who sin and those who don’t. It’s a matter of whether we are repentant/justified/reconciled sinners or unrepentant/unjustified/unreconciled sinners.
We must reject works
We can never merit/earn our way to being right with a Holy God.
Hi all! I am attempting to get caught up (again!), so I’ll be posting the messages we have from Alan from the last few weeks over the next days, beginning with his Palm Sunday message. To listen to this message, simply click play on the audio player below. I’ve also included his outline and some notes, along with links to Scripture at Bible Gateway. Praying you are blessed by this message.
Jesus’ Entry to People’s Worship
Introduction: Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem, at the beginning of Passover week, is met by the praise of people. This event is commonly referred to as the Triumphal Entry and also referred to as Palm Sunday. Every gospel records this event. This event teaches us the reasons we should praise Jesus. I’ll only read one of the gospel recordings, but look at all of them, because there are unique words in each record. Palm Sunday is all about praise! We will look at praise from four aspects.
The four gospel accounts of Jesus’ Triumphal Entry:
