Where Is Your Trust?

December 30, 2018 | Series: Special. Scripture: Ezekiel. Speakers: Jason Donaldson.

Ezekiel 17

In the midst of disciplining his people for their faithlessness, God sent a parable against King Zedekiah, condemning his misplaced trust and dishonoring of the name of the Lord. Yet, in the context of further coming judgment, God promises a wondrous deliverance. This lesson was not only for the people in Ezekiel’s day, but all the more for us today.

Why Suffering?

January 1, 2017 | Series: Special. Scripture: John. Speakers: Jason Donaldson.

John 11:1-44

The raising of Lazarus from the dead is a well-known and precious text from the earthly ministry of Jesus. Examining the setting, the theme, and the purpose of this account, we see a far-reaching and decisive response to the age-old problem of evil, and a response to our suffering that takes place under the power of a sovereign God.

The Threads of Divine Providence

June 12, 2016 | Scripture: Philemon. Speakers: Jason Donaldson.

Philemon

For those with eyes to see it, the scriptures referral the threads of God working out his purposes, in history and in human lives. While we usually see this clearly only in retrospect, the knowledge that he works good for his people in the worst of circumstances (as seen most clearly in the cross of Christ) servers to strengthen our ability to trust in him looking forward.

Jesus On His Own Terms

March 20, 2016 | Scripture: John. Speakers: Jason Donaldson.

John 12:9-19

At what we call Jesus’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem, just days before his crucifixion, everyone involved had their own agenda for Jesus. Jesus, however, will not be had on mere fallen human terms. In love, he sovereignly insists, now as then, that those who would have him must accept him on his own terms.

Reaching the Biblically Illiterate

July 26, 2015 | Series: The Church on the Move: Acts. Scripture: Acts. Speakers: Jason Donaldson.

Acts 17:16 – 18:1
In Athens, Paul was confronted with a sophisticated culture full of ideas and thinkers, full of religious worship, and utterly biblically illiterate. Examining the apostle’s response is of increasing relevance to us today, as he biblically responded to their lostness, to lead them from what truth they had, into the most important truths that they lacked.
