This week we take a look at I Kings 17-19.  Here God shows us how He used the firebrand prophet Elijah to bring His Word to the evil nation of Israel as they slipped into the worship of false gods. The words of Elijah ring true as a call for repentance and faith even in our day.

As our study of Ephesians comes to a close, Paul tells us about the armor of God which He gives us to fight temptation and the evil around us.  He reminds us of who the real enemy is and that this armor is Jesus Christ.  God clothes us with Jesus Christ and  in His victory can we stand in the “evil day.”  For the victory is ours in Jesus Christ.

The world has it’s own views of marriage, the role of husbands and the role of wives. These worldly views are far from God’s Word. Ephesians 5:22-33 gives us the truth about marriage, husbands and wives based on the relationship between Christ and His bride the church.

Paul now leads us into a discussion of new life in Christ in chapter 4.  The language here reminds us of our baptism.  For at our baptism we put off the old man, our hard hearts and our sinful desires.  We also put on Christ with His righteousness and holiness.  We are renewed and have a whole new way to live our lives in Christ.

Unity is a continuing theme in Ephesians.  In chapter 4 “the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace” takes center stage.  This unity is a gift of God to us as we continue in the faith in Jesus Christ.  We are to hasten to keep this God given gift.  This is possible only through Jesus Christ giving His people so many blessed gifts.

In Ephesians 3 Paul tells us what the mystery is.  The mystery is that it is God’s will that Paul preaches the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles.  For they too are fellow heirs and partakers of the promises of forgiveness of sins and eternal life in Christ.

“For by grace are you saved through faith” is one of the most well known passages in the New Testament from Ephesians 2.  However, there is even more in this chapter from walking in trespasses and sins, to being saved by grace through faith in Christ resulting in a new life of walking in good works and finally, being built up as a "holy temple in the Lord.”  How amazing is our God and all He does for us in Jesus Christ!

Pastor David Smith begins a study of the book of Ephesians, providing a brief history on the people of Ephesus. Paul writes to the church in Ephesus.  The Apostle spent over three years in Ephesus.  He writes a general letter to them instructing them in a number of areas.  He begins with a Prayer of Praise in 1:3-14.  Interesting is the fact that these verses in the Greek text are one long sentence.  This emphasizes unity.  Within ...

As John begins the last chapter of his epistle, he weaves together many themes including faith, love, the Holy Spirit, testimony, water and blood. In just a few verses he ties all these together around Jesus Christ. He affirms that our faith in Jesus Christ overcomes the world. Jesus Christ is the only One who tells us the truth. Jesus Christ is the only One who gives eternal life to all who believe. Due to technical difficul...

In 1John 4 the Apostle says, “God is love.”  Then he proceeds to tell us about the love of God manifested in Jesus Christ.  This is the very nature of God. John shares with us our lives here and in eternity as God gives us His selfless, unconditional, undeserved, eternal love.   John says, ’”No one has seen God.”  Yet, with eyes of faith we see that God is love.

Pastor David Smith continues the study in 1 John, beginning with verse 11. John carefully draws the comparison between those who believe in Jesus Christ and are in a right relationship with God versus those who do not believe and are not in such a relationship.  Faith in Christ translates into a life of loving one’s neighbor.  Without that faith there is the opposite-hatred of one’s neighbor. This is the way of the world.
