John 10:9“I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.” (John 10:9) Right before this verse, Jesus stated, “All who ever came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them” (John 10:8). Clearly, Jesus is teaching that He is the only way to salvation,...

Then Jesus declared, ‘I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.’” (John 6:35) Like in many cultures, bread was a staple in the diet of the Jewish people, and when Jesus said that He was the “bread of life,” He was saying that, as...

Baptism is the outward demonstration of the inward reality of Jesus' dying for our sins and rising from the dead to give us new life. It also illustrates how, through Jesus, we died to our own sin and were born again by the Holy Spirit into new life through faith in Jesus.

Grace and Mercy come from God, we still battle with sin and yet, God, in his grace and mercy, comes to us personally and eternally to keep us on track. Galatians 5:16-25 tells us how to "walk in the Spirit", which means we are to completely surrender and submit to God's way in our lives. Walking in the Spirit is...

"But, I Have a Sin Problem." The previous two weeks had to do with grace, mercy and forgiveness through Jesus Christ's person and work. It seems that we should be in perfectly condition now. But, we keep sinning? Is it just me? Even the Apostle Paul recognized that we continue to battle with our sin. In Romans 7:14-25 we find...

At Christmas time, one of the most famous ancient prophetic Bible verses we read comes from Isaiah 9:2, where the prophet says that the people walking in darkness have seen a great light. What is darkness? What is light? #albcgreatlight

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...

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.

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...

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...

The "Messed Up" series changes to Cleaned Up through the power, person and work of Jesus Christ. Good Friday is the day we recognize that Jesus’ died for our sins. Our sins made us impure and dirty before God. We were unworthy to be with God. But Jesus’ blood and his life make us completely clean from all sin.

Sin makes us dirty. Jesus cleanses us. Baptism represents what Jesus did for us by dying on the cross and then rising from the dead. His death took our sinfulness down with him to the grave and when he rose from the dead, we received new life, too. This new life is clean because of Jesus. Baptism also represents this...

Symbols mean something. It is good for us to know what they mean and how they apply to our lives. Baptism is a symbol. Baptism, in and of itself, is not special, but the truth it symbolizes is very powerful. It represents Jesus' work to save us from our sins. We proclaim Jesus through baptism.

We cannot be saved on our own. We need Jesus. How do we know this? We have a message: the Gospel, which means, literally, the Good News. We need this Good News in order to be saved from our sins and from God's punishment. We also need to proclaim this message to others.
