“Seeing Jesus” through His Humility

This second lesson in the series endeavors to come to a better understanding of Jesus by looking at the humility involved in His birth, life, and death. 


Let’s Make Thanksgiving a Year ‘Round Event!

I don’t mean the baked/roasted/smoked/fried turkey part.  Nor do I mean the spending time with family-who-live-far-away part.  I’m not even talking about the deer hunting or watching football part.  And I definitely don’t mean the shopping part.  Our waistlines, nerves, and bank accounts couldn’t stand these things on a year ‘round basis!  But I do mean the part about being more cognizant and appreciative of our blessings on a daily and year ‘round basis….


The Importance of “Seeing Jesus”

This outline introduces the upcoming series, "Seeing Jesus" by examining the request made to "see Jesus" in John 12:22-26 by some Greek (Gentile) men to Philip outside the Temple.   The lesson focuses on four important truths Jesus revealed to them about Himself that, if understood and taken to heart, would allow them to truly "see" Him.


The Triumph of Good over Evil

God is certainly in control of human events and history to the degree that He chooses.  The Scriptures indicate that there were times when He chose to intervene, such as the Tower of Babel, Genesis 11:1-9; and times when He chose not to intervene, such as the (then) “generation gone by” when“He permitted all the nations to go their own ways,” Acts 14:16.  For humans living in these times- whether past or present, it can be difficult to know whether God is controlling or allowing things to unfold as they do to paint the eventual picture of history.  The tragic events in Paris a few days ago, and many others like them, remind us that most of what occurs on the timeline of human history is beyond our capability to comprehend, much less control.  But God is in control, and whether He choses to dictate or allow certain events- regardless of how we view them, good triumphs over evil!

Men’s One-Day Study: “How to Constructively Deal with Homosexuality”

This material was also presented as a part of our twice a year Men's One-Day Study.  As with previous efforts in this series, it was originally designed for preachers, but is open to any men interested in studying God's word in a more advanced way.  This particular study was specially written and delivered to help preachers, elders, deacons, and fathers deal with the subject of homosexuality in a constructive and productive way.  The session topics covered are: Thinking Through Homosexuality; Adolescent Motivations for Homosexuality; Homosexuality and the Bible; and Constructively Dealing with Homosexuality.  An Appendix of additional resource articles (both true and some that are included only for illustrative purposes) is also included.   After you download it, but BEFORE you decide to print it, please understand that this is a Word file consisting of 51 pages (over 24,500 words).

Daily Verse

“[The Word Became Flesh] In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.”

- John 1:1-2, 14
