Son of David, Part 1

Son of David, Part 1

Our aversion to rule by kings is understandable given our nation’s past.   But we in the church refer to Jesus as king, and the Bible refers to Him as son of another king, King David.  How can kingly rule be good when the track record of kings in so much of history is dismal?  This text describes the […]

Genesis 1:20-25:  As we continue through the account of God’s preparation of the earth for humankind, we come to the fifth day when He blesses the earth with living things in air, sea, and land.  The world bursts forth with the evidence of His provision, drawn from His wealth of intrinsic authority, beauty, and power.

The Trinity in Creation: God The Spirit

The Trinity in Creation: God The Spirit

Last week Pastor Taylor’s sermon helped us see the role of God the Father in Creation. Taylor reminded the congregation that Genesis does not explain “everything” about creation. There are some questions we have for which God chose not to provide detailed answers. Some of those questions we need faith to accept. Today we learned […]

The Trinity in Creation: God the Father

In Genesis 1:1, Pastor Taylor considers the question, How big is your God? Because God is big, we should give Him our hearts, but there is a more mysterious and wonderful reason to give Him our hearts: the Father has created us for Himself.
