Description: Now that Jude has commanded us to contend earnestly for the faith once for all delivered to the saints, he now gives us the things to do in order to accomplish this task. The tasks he gives are both practical as well as profound. If churches were to follow Jude’s instruction many wouldn’t be in such dire need of reform.
Description: Sometimes familiar words lose their meaning. The word fellowship is like that. We use the word fellowship as an adjective to describe a church event. For instance, a potluck becomes a “fellowship meal” and just hanging out with other believers becomes “fellowshipping”. The term fellowship though is significant in meaning and must be understood within the context of Christ’s fellowship with His people. As Christ is in fellowship with His people, His people are in fellowship with each other. The teaching of and about Christ become the truth upon which our fellowship is based.
In our message today, we see that there are some who have broken fellowship, they have dis-fellowshipped themselves over the truth. John tells the church that those who have left — left because they never were truly in fellowship in the first place.
Description: In today’s sermon, we come to a controversial section of Scripture for two reasons. The first is that the mention of “alcohol” opens a can of worms for many Christians and the second is that there is disagreement on what it means to be filled by the Holy Spirit and the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives. This sermon attempts to clear up any confusion and misconceptions regarding both of these areas and clearly outline what Paul means by this verse and why he makes such a comparison.
Description: The special emphasis of the Gospel of John is the Deity of Jesus. The reason why this Gospel was written is clearly given, “these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.” John 20:30-31
