This study is all about how Jesus is the point of the whole book, and how we ought to live for Him. Check out this study, and let us know your thoughts!

Do you ever get tired of the same old, same old when it comes to youth curriculum?  I don’t know about you, but I get so frustrated with the low expectations writers and publishers have on teenagers.  Do they think teenagers aren’t studying British Literature, Calculus, Geography, Physics, Chemistry, Advanced Grammar, Western Civilization, etc?  If these students are studying those tough courses in school, no wonder they are bored in church with the shallow and watered-down lessons, studies, and sermons we give them!  Continue reading

When I was visiting some people in the hospital last week, I noticed a college aged girl who was walking in a group of people…but she was limping pretty badly.  I guess it didn’t throw me off to badly since I had already seen one patient walking around in a construction hard-hat and another walking around in furry-bunny slippers.  A minute or two after the group had passed, the girls came walking back towards us again, this time all by her lonesome.  She stopped and asked me if I knew where the emergency room was.  Apparently, this girl had been walking around the hospital with a torn ACL…looking for the emergency room!  She definitely needed immediate attention since her knee was swollen to the size of a honeydew melon.  But what if someone walked in with a gun-shot wound, or a woman in labor, or someone vomiting, or someone with diarrhea (yeah, I’m going to stop there)?  Which one should get attention first, second, third?  Hospitals have developed a system for these kinds of dilemmas called “triage.”  Triage comes from a French word meaning “to sort.”  And this system will help us theologically.

Right now our church is working on a revival in November.  We as a church staff have gotten together and made plans, we’ve called the evangelist who’s coming, we’re talking to schools in the area to get him in, etc.  Notice how we first wanted to have a revival here, then next we put plans in place to have it.  From before the beginning of creation, God’s first thought was how He wanted all eternity to look, and then He put His plans in place to make it happen.  Eternity isn’t just the last thing on God’s list, but it was the very first thing on His mind.  Continue reading

            Imagine living hundreds of years ago in a medieval kingdom, with a castle in the middle, and citizens living as servants to their sovereign king.  Imagine your King making an appearance once a week to verbally address his kingdom from the castle’s third-floor balcony.  Remember, whatever the King says is law for his kingdom and life for his citizens.  All would listen intently!

Likewise, the Doctrine of Revelation is all about God revealing Himself, His character, and His purposes through the way in which He speaks to all people. Continue reading

Have you ever thought to yourself that what you learn in church is difficult to remember?  If you worship with the church in Sunday school, Sunday morning worship, Sunday evening worship, Sunday evening Discipleship Training, and Wednesday evening worship, then you may feel like its impossible to really remember everything you hear.  If you think that, I’m with you!  That is why there needs to be one central, overarching point to every message, sermon, and lesson just like there is one central theme in the Bible.  Continue reading
