What are good and evil? More specifically, how shall we define moral evil, functional evil, functional good, and moral good? Moral Evil is behavior, thoughts, and feelings that violate God’s law, will, and character. These are behaviors that we always consider to be wrong and can never be right (Exodus 20:1-17). For instance, lying is a moral evil and is never considered...

God gave us three kinds of glimpses of Jesus in the Old Testament that illustrate His ministry to us. PROPHETS: A prophet speaks for God. HIGH PRIESTS: A high priest provides access to God. KINGS: A king provides protection. The stories of Moses, Melchizedek and Uzziah demonstrate these three roles. Christ is prophet, priest and King to every believer. We have great privilege...

Topic: Diety of Christ
Jacob and his sons learned to look past circumstances to hope in God's promise to make Israel a great nation. Joseph looked past years of suffering and mistreatment to see God's ultimate purpose for his life. We must hope not in what we see, but what we can't see. When we can't find hope in something, we must find our hope in Someone. Nothing can separate us from God's love.

Topic: God the Father
So many of God’s people missed God’s heart for everyone. They missed the purpose of the law and how God wanted them to live. In the New Testament, the scholars ignored what they taught and the religious zealots missed what God wanted. The disciples of Jesus didn’t think Jesus meant what He said. We can often miss Jesus at work in our lives if we are not looking for Him.

Topic: Preaching & Teaching
Work is the contribution we make to life: to sustain life, to improve life, to advance life. God wants us to honor Him in our work. Your work is noticed and valued by God.

Topic: Work and Vocation
Complaining makes life miserable. Complaining causes us to miss what God is doing now, damages the gifts He gives us and hurts our testimony. If we speak instead with gratitude and contentment, we enhance our relationship with God and others, and we receive heavenly rewards.
Scripture: Philippians 2:14-15, Genesis 3:11-13, Genesis 4:6-9, Exodus 16:1-2, Matthew 20:1-16
God's presence with man revealed in Christ is traced throughout scripture. God's call in the Garden, the Tabernacle, the Temple, and the saints remind us that He is with us to care for us and save us.

Topic: The Birth of Christ
God wants to have a reciprocal, intimate relationship with us. Spiritual children experience the beginning of a relationship with their Heavenly Father. Spiritual young men and women know the Bible, are strong and have overcome the Evil One. Spiritual mothers and fathers experience the infinite depths of intimacy with God Himself.

Topic: Devotional Life
We're looking into the 1st crime scene of the Bible - pulling out another theological foundation God has for us from the early chapters of Genesis. God designed us for community, calls us to community and has some divine purposes for his community to accomplish in this world.
