According to Luke’s Gospel, the disciples were troubled and doubted when they first saw Jesus risen from the dead. Jesus revealed Himself to them as flesh and bones and not a spirit. Through many proofs, Jesus presented Himself alive from the dead. His resurrection changed the disciples and changes many today. Jesus also gave the greatest mission to tell the world about His resurrection, repentance, and forgiveness of sins. Jesus did not give a mission that could not be accomplished. Furthermore, God gave gifts to Christians for that mission. This message explores the faith, hope, and love that compels obedience to Jesus’s Great Commission.

Why do you go to church? Better yet, how would you describe the ideal church to attend? How do the people communicate and interact with each other? How would they handle disputes and disagreements?

We live in a world where people are moving further away from home and engaging less in the real world. No longer feeling a sense of community at church or within their family, people are looking elsewhere to fill the void.

The church was created to be the most influential and powerful sense of the belonging the world will ever know. So when did things start going wrong? We will discuss the leading cause of division within the church (or any relationship), plus three key elements to overcome them.

As the chief priests and scribes mocked Jesus on the cross calling Jesus to come, many today mock the cross of Christ. The message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing according to the apostle Paul. What is the cross of Christ to those who being saved? This message presents Christ’s crucifixion as the power of God to salvation. The cross of Christ is God’s demonstration of love. Paul concluded Christ is the wisdom and power of God.

Jesus challenged hypocrisy and hidden sins. Many people put God off until later. They focus on this life now. They reason that they are good enough not thinking about the faithful are saved. Jesus told the parable a rich farmer whose land produced much. The man tore down his barns and built new ones. He told himself, “Soul, you have ample goods laid up for many years; relax, eat, drink, be merry.” However, God spoke, “Fool! This night your soul is required of you, and the things you have prepared, whose will they be?” Jesus revealed that only a few are saved. The answer to salvation is in Christ’s words found in Luke 9:23–26.

Christians believe that God instituted marriage for life — one man, one woman, one life, one exception. Jesus declared, “What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate” (Mark 10:9). People are amazed at any couple who remain married for decades. However, marriage is often hard but worth it as God made man and women for each other. Divorce seems too common. The Bible describes the cruelty of divorce for any reason. This message urges all believers to listen to Jesus Christ and bring His love into your marriage.

Jesus instituted a memorial meal on the night of His betrayal. The New Testament church recognized this as “the breaking of bread.” Many know this memorial as "the Lord’s Supper" or "communion." The breaking of the bread is a communion partaking of Christ’s body and blood, and the meal is an essential act of Christian unity. Paul further warned Christians to partake of the Lord’s Supper in a worthy manner discerning the body and the blood. For in doing this, Christians proclaim the Lord’s death. This message explores these significant points and more from the Scriptures.

Can readers trust every “Bible”? The Holy Spirit guided the inspired writers to write God’s wisdom. If God revealed His Word directly to you, how would you record God’s Word? Every word of the Scripture matters. Jesus promised that His words would judge the world one day. However, some “translations” have changed God’s word for strange reasons. This message directs the believer to identify translations that are true to God’s Word.

Do you need love, attention, acceptance, or security but you feel unlovable? Do you need meaning, purpose, significance, and success but you feel like a failure? God loves you and has a purpose for you. God will transform you when you come to believe and obey Him. This message presents how God’s gracious gifts make disciples of Christ more than conquerors. Nothing in creation can separate the faithful from the love of God. However, selfish sins can separate you from God. Coveting the acceptance of others and protecting your self-importance separates people from God. God has seen you at your worst, yet He loves you. This message presents how God’s grace provides a purpose for your life.

Words are powerful. James described the tongue as a deadly poison. When the Holy Spirit fills hearts, there is no room for insults and profanity. This message presents the faults of the tongue. Christians can change their words to build up and give grace. Jesus revealed, “For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks” (Matt 12:35). On the other hand, how should Christians respond to those who insult, abuse, and persecute them with words? Christ taught, “Love your enemies.” Listen and consider how the Scriptures guide believers in the use of their words.

Jesus declared that His words would never pass away. Faith in Jesus as the Christ the reason that many believe in the Bible. The Bible is the source of Jesus’s life, death, and resurrection in the Gospels. How does the Bible attest to its reliability? This message considers come critical points about trusting the Bible many centuries after its origin. Believers find that the Bible is perfect in harmony without any contradiction. The Bible is only as infallible as Jesus is sinless and His words are without error.
