May you be blessed this week. I hope that you are enjoying the daily videos in Proverbs. Leave your thoughts and comments on my Facebook page if you would like to share what you are getting from our daily studies. In today’s video, I asked if you would like to do another book of the Bible, so also please comment with the next book you would like us to study together.
Pastor James will be doing our sermon recap video tonight. I am looking forward to it.
Here are the sermon notes from Sunday:
This is week 1 in our Doctrine and Devotion series.
My hope for you during this series is that you become rooted and grounded in the faith as Paul explains in Colossians 2:6-14
To be rooted or established, there needs to be a foundation on which to build. So, we are building upon the foundation of Scripture.
We are told in James to be doers of the Word and not hearers only. You can say that you believe something but do something else entirely. What you believe determines what you do. I can point out the way to you but I cannot make you believe.
We believe that the Bible is our highest authority. It is holy, it is inerrant, it is infallible.
We believe that the Bible is the only sufficient, certain source of all saving knowledge, faith and obedience. In other words, the Bible tells us about God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. The Bible tells us how we are saved from our sins, and the Bible tells us what God expects from us in the form of obedience in light of the fact that we have been adopted into His family.
We believe John 1:1
We believe that Word is Jesus. Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Jesus spoke the universe into existence and through Him are all things held together.
There are some people that you will meet, that will proclaim that they believe in the Bible. They will tell you they love the Bible, they may tell you that they believe the Bible is sufficient for salvation and sanctification. But there is a cavernous gap between what they say and what they do. There is a huge disconnect.
If you say that you believe the Bible than you should be conforming to the image of Jesus.
Romans 10:9-13 salvation
Romans 12:1-2 sanctification
You cannot come into contact with this sword and remain unchanged. You are either driven to Jesus or you harden your heart and you run from Jesus. Every. Single. Time.
No one is left neutral.
I LOVE OUR CHURCH!
