The Fall introduced The Battle of the Sexes. The Christian husband and wife relationship will face temptations. Christian men and Christian women both received sin natures that manifest themselves differently. Which temptations are most common to men? What about women? More importantly, how can these temptations be resisted so husbands and wives can have the healthy, joyful, Christ-centered marriages God desires for us? https:/...

Colossians 3:19 commands, "Husbands love your wives and do not be harsh with them" and Ephesians 5:25 commands, "Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her." What does it look like for husbands to love their wives as Christ loves the church? The world would have multiple answers, but what does God's Word say? Also, how can wives help their husbands obey this command?...

Ephesians 5:22 and Colossians 3:18 commands, "Wives submit to your husbands as is fitting in the Lord," and Wives are commanded to submit to their husbands: "Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord," and 1 Peter 3:1 commands, "Likewise, wives, be subject to your own husbands, so that even if some do not obey the word, they may be won without a word by the conduct of their wives." "Submission&#...

Peter commands, "Likewise, husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way, showing honor to the woman as the weaker vessel, since they are heirs with you of the grace of life, so that your prayers may not be hindered" (1 Peter 3:7). After Peter commands wives to submit to their husbands, he tells husbands how to treat their wives in an understanding way so as not to abuse the authority given to them. Also, two husba...

"Nevertheless let each husband in particular so love his own wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband" (Ephesians 5:33). Husbands are commanded to love their wives, but wives are commanded to respect their husbands. Learn why there are two different commands, and what this difference means for men and women. Can a wife love her husband without respecting him? Also learn what it means for a wife to...

James 1:2 says, "Count it all joy when you fall into various trials." Notice it says WHEN you fall into various trials instead of “IF you fall into various trials.” We’re going to face trials. What can we do to ensure we're prepared for them when they come? How can we have a foundation that prevents us from being destroyed when the storms of life occur? Asa, King of Judah, provides a good example for Christians to learn...

John the Baptist commanded the multitudes to bear fruit worthy of repentance (Matthew 3:8 and Luke 3:8). This verse helps reveal the most common reason people fail regarding repentance. They put off without putting on. They stop the sin without starting the accompanying behavior God wants. Manasseh, the evilest king of Judah, surprisingly is a great example of repentance, as well as a tremendous vessel of God's mercy and forgiv...

The consequences of poor spiritual leadership are shown well through Jacob's decision to settle his family in Shechem. Jacob's family, especially his daughter, Dinah, suffered because of his poor spiritual leadership. He planted his family at Shechem, never considering the terrible spiritual, physical, mental, and emotional consequences. What can men learn from Jacob's mistakes? How can fathers and husbands - as well as...

Jonah is a type of Christ. Jesus taught that the Old Testament is about Him (Luke 24:27). Jonah serves as one of the clearest types and shadows of Christ. When Jesus was asked for a sign, He staked His death, burial, and resurrection on the prophet. Additionally, the storm the disciples experienced with Jesus in the boat parallels the storm Jonah experienced when the sailors threw him overboard. Having Jesus in the boat with the di...

Unity and holiness is important to the church for the sanctification of believers and outreach and evangelism to unbelievers. God’s pattern throughout man’s history is to have an inside and outside, including during the Church Age. Holiness creates the boundary so the church doesn’t look like the world. In the Old Testament the Mosaic Law contained commands that allowed Israel to be holy and set apart from the surrounding nations. ...

Proverbs 22:6 says, "Train up your children in the way they should go," but as parents we must go that way ourselves to avoid being hypocrites. We desire the best for our children. We want them to embrace the Gospel and follow the Lord at the earliest possible time in their lives. Our children face so many threats. Could one of those threats be from their own parents? As Christian parents what can we do to avoid hypocrisy i...

Strong Christian men spiritually protect their home from the enemies that seek to destroy their wife and children, such as the world, the devil, and the flesh. In Matthew 12:29 Jesus said, "How can one enter a strong man's house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man? And then he will plunder his house." The entire house is protected by the strong man. The house rises or falls based on him. Strong m...

"Behold, children are a gift of the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a reward," writes Solomon in Psalm 127:3. My desire with this sermon is for people to view children as they're described in the Bible, which is to say view children as God views them. https://youtu.be/WhenX1JvKGA "Behold, children are a gift of the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a reward," (Psalm 127:3). Children and barrenness are sensitive...

James 5:11 says, “We count those blessed who endured. You have heard of the endurance of Job and have seen the outcome of the Lord’s dealings, that the Lord is full of compassion and is merciful.” If someone said, “Show me an example in Scripture of God being compassionate and merciful” you wouldn’t take them to Job, but James 5:11 says that even with Job, God was still "very compassionate and merciful." The Coronavirus has...

Isaiah 64:8 says, "You are our Father; we are the clay, and You our potter; and all we are the work of Your hand." We can say this to God since He's sovereign, including over the trials we experience. To reject trials is to reject God's will for our lives. The Potter and the Clay in Jeremiah 18:1-12 is an object lesson God used to teach this truth to His people. As Jeremiah watched the potter work, he learned how we...

Second Corinthians 7:10 says, "Godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation, not to be regretted; but the sorrow of the world produces death." At different times people defend Judas, minimize his actions, and even claim he was a believer. It always relates to him bringing back the money saying he sinned, and showing sorrow over what he did. The problem is that Scripture discusses two types of sorrow: godly sorrow a...

"Wives, in the same way submit yourselves to your husbands so that, if any of them do not believe the word, they may be won over without words by the behavior of their wives" is commanded in 1 Peter 3:1. The same command is found in Ephesians 5:22 and 24: "Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord...Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything...

Jesus took our place on the cross and His substitutionary atonement is demonstrated beautifully when He died in the place of Barabbas, a notorious sinner. Matthew 27:26, says, "Then Pilate released Barabbas to them; and when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered Him to be crucified." I’d like you to put yourself in Barabbas’s place. When the guards came to get him, what do you think he thought…and didn’t think? He thought, “T...

First Peter 2:13-14 commands, "Therefore submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake, whether to the king as supreme, or to governors, as to those who are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers and for the praise of those who do good." Pastor Scott explained why the elders feel led to submit to government and appeal to officials during the Coronavirus lockdown (Covid-19), versus rebel against the co...

The importance of family worship is in the Old and New Testaments. Since families are at home together because of the Coronavirus, Pastor Scott recorded his family worship, modeling for other families what they can easily do too. The video includes them coming together at the table, singing worship songs, reading the Bible together, and praying for some requests. You can jump to 5:50 if you want to see when we actually begin, b...
