Join Pastor Chuck Swindoll as he introduces us to Jesus as Lord. His followers first knew Him as a rabbi, but they soon saw Him as far more than a local teacher!
What words come to mind when you hear the term theology? Dry…Dreary…Doubtful…DULL? You’re not alone.
Too often we don’t realize that theology—thinking about God—is an intimate part of our everyday lives, rather than something that takes place in ivory towers crowded with bearded men crouched over dusty books. We each engage in theology because we each have a set of beliefs about God. But rather than being content with our ideas about God as they now stand, we should each have a desire to know God better than we do today. If you’ve got that desire, then you’re ready to do theology!
Let these resources point the way to a faith more deeply connected with who God actually says He is.
Rather than fearing the enemy, David took refuge and strength in the power of God! In this sermon on 1 Samuel 17, Pastor Chuck Swindoll describes how David looked past the giant to trust in the Lord of Hosts.
God sees and knows our shortcomings. And that is why we daily need His undeserved favour—grace. In spite of us, His infinite love is unconditional. Our relationship to God is not based on our perfection, but on Christ’s.
God created us and gave us principles to live by in His Word. Ignoring Him and these truths as Marxism does only results in death and destruction. This man-made ideology has always failed to bring about good in our world and always will.
From a pluralist’s standpoint, the exclusivity of Jesus as the only way of salvation is intolerant. It assumes the existence of absolute truth, that it may be known, and it delegitimizes all competing religious claims.
The term worry is derived from the old German word wurgen, which means "to choke." Somehow, by extension, the word came to denote "mental strangulation," and, finally, to describe the condition of being harassed with anxiety.
Jesus says if we build our lives on Him, when the storms of life come, we will stand. We can trust in His wisdom and power.
To summarize Scripture, the issue is not that possessions are wrong. It’s our attitude toward them. It is the LOVE of money and things that Scripture condemns. Anything we trust in besides God is an idol.
It’s easy to lose ourselves to fantasy. But God’s divine perspective grounds us in a proper view of the real world. He alone provides meaning and purpose to an otherwise pointless life.
King Solomon lived out his dreams. He enjoyed every pleasure the world had to offer, and it came up short. Solomon discovered living a life devoted to pleasure is meaningless.
