True disciples, true followers of someone often ask for instruction, direction or guidance. This was true of Jesus disciples and should be true of believers today. Pastor David Menzel’s sermon focus Sunday was on the disciples’ request that Jesus teach them to pray. Why is praying important? How can we pray well?
St John chapter 14 consistently ranks very high as a favorite of believers in Jesus. And in many ways it is no surprise. The chapter is filled with hope; both for the present and for the future. But in v. 12 Jesus makes an incredible statement: Those who believe in him will not only do the works that Jesus has done, but will do even greater works that these! What to make of this statement?
If Christians have “died with Christ” and are supposed to have “a new life in Christ”, why do Christians (maybe not you) struggle with sin, or plainly “just sin” more than they wish they would? Randy Meyers’ sermon addresses this vary question.
What is the difference between Covenant Theology and Reformed Theology? Well, that is a good and fair question. Pastor Galardi takes up this question and a few more in Sunday’s sermon. He draws primarily from Genesis 12, 15 and 17 but slips in a few more references for good measure.
