Living as Exiles

August 9, 2020 | Series: Special. Scripture: Jeremiah. Speakers: Jason Donaldson.

Jeremiah 29:1-14

Over 2,500 years ago, God’s people were uprooted and sent into exile, to live among a hostile pagan culture.  God did not leave them without instruction, however, sending word through the prophet Jeremiah on how they were to live as his people in exile.  Today, every assembly of believers is an outpost embedded in a pagan culture, and so Jeremiah’s message stands to guide us in how to live during the years of our sojourning.

God’s Greatness Made Known, Even in Apostasy

August 2, 2020 | Series: Special. Scripture: John. Speakers: Jason Donaldson.

John 13:21-31

Sensational “deconversion stories” make the news, and seemingly threaten to undermine the faith.  The Bible teaches us better than that.  Certainly, it warns us to expect it and to guard against it.  But it also shows us how great our God is, and how he glorifies himself even in the most egregious example of apostasy in history.
