Romans 8:28 is probably the second most well-known and used verse in the evangelical Christian's Bible vocabulary. The big question is beyond do we know what it means. The biggest question is, do we believe it to be absolutely true in our lives and in the lives of others. Bill Ehlers presents us with this challenge to help us understand what...

Ephesians 4:11-13 shows that Jesus Christ is like the "Head Coach" of the church. Jesus plans and directs how we operate in the world as individual believers and as a whole church family. Jesus also made leaders part of the team. These leaders are people in the church who exercise their gifts and abilities to help guide the church along...

The Bible is God’s inspired Word and our foundation for living. Biblical preaching and teaching are means by which we achieve deeper Bible knowledge and should result in transformed lives.

God invites us to pray. Prayer is the cornerstone of our involvement in God’s will and His mission. On our part it is an act of faith and obedience. Jesus illustrated this in a powerful and somewhat humorous parable in Luke 18:1-8, where God calls us to passionately plead our case before him, knowing that He cares about us...

1 Corinthians 11:23-32. Communion is a vital part of every church and Christian's life. It was instituted by Jesus Himself. We have been called to practice communion and to do it carefully. This care means we must take a deep look at ourselves, evaluate our motives and our reasons not just for what we do, but for whom we are participating.

When God had finished his creation work, he "took a Sabbath" from his work. When God put together the covenant with his people, Israel, he commanded them to "take a Sabbath" from their labours. When Jesus was on the earth, he told people to come to him, and he would give them "Sabbath". The Sabbath, like everything in the Law,...

The Power of God to Raise the Dead - Acts 20, 1 Corinthians 15. People have been falling asleep in church for centuries. It's most likely the preacher's fault. Even Paul's sermons dropped on poor young man not just into dreamland, but out of a third story window. What could have been a horrific tragedy, turned into another revelation of God's great power...

In Judges 4, God was rescuing Israel from their own troubles...again. Deborah had been named as a judge over Israel by God and she led the way to victory, all the while holding the hand of the General who wouldn't go to battle without her. Jael was faced with a brutal decision, but took the steps necessary to ensure the...

As a result of a foolish decision, the Israelites were now caught in a treaty with the Gibeonites. Nearby tribal kings saw that Gibeon was now aligned with the feared Israelites, so they decided to bring the Gibeonites back into line so that they could all join forces against Israel. God sent Joshua and the Israelites out to not only...

God had given the whole world to King Nebuchadnezzar. In fact, in Jeremiah 27, God called Nebuchadnezzar his "servant". In a move that is common to all people, Nebuchadnezzar began to think his incredible success was a result of his wisdom, intelligence, craftiness and greatness. Little did he know that God was not going to let him get away with this...

Daniel 3. Three young men were faced with a huge fiery test: do something directly against their faith, morals and ethics, or be burned to death. When we hold firm to our faith in Jesus Christ and live the lifestyle of loving God and loving our neighbour, we will face a backlash from our society, even from our closest friends and...

Acts 9:36-43 The Story of Dorcas . The idea is that the gospel must be preached, but it is to be proven as life changing through our service. Our service must also be from genuine love. We are challenging the church to participate actively in the Great Commission, right where we are.

We have the command from Jesus to share our faith. Most Christians really do want to share their faith. Our modern culture, though, has drifted so far from the true God, from church and the Bible that we cannot assume they know what we are talking about when we share our faith. We have to take the time and have...
