    2. A Call to pray. A Prayer Partner can enhance your prayer power. Become part of a pray partner team. In addition, please join us for Noonday Prayer on Wednesday, May 5. Our unified journey in prayer makes our journey more enjoyable. As we continue to pray read Nehemiah 1. Jesus Christ our Savior, High Priest and Redeemer is always available to us on our spiritual speed dial-God’ word (Hebrews 4:15-16). In fact, Jesus desires to help us with our burdens and struggles. Listen to Jesus open invitation, “Come to me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and My burden is light” (Matthew 11:28-30). Prayer is more than an opportunity to talk directly to God but an act of obedient to Him, for Jesus said, “Men should always pray and not faint” (Luke 18:1). Even the Apostle Paul insist that prayer is an endless act of obedience to God (1 Thessalonians 5:17). Your prayer of faith is giving us the edge in our war against Evil (Hebrews 11:6).

    12. Faith Inspiration: FAITH IN THE MIDST OF A PANDEMIC: A Call to Faithfulness because of Who Jesus is.
    Background Scripture: 1 Corinthians 13:1-13
    SUBJECT: A Challenge to Love Responsibly (Hebrews 13:1-16; John 15:9-17). GOD SETS THE Love Boundary
    Introduction: In response to a Pharisee’s question, Jesus put the Mosaic Law into the most concise form possible. He called attention to the two greatest commandments (Matthew 22:37-40; Deuteronomy 6:5; Leviticus19:18)
    Jesus said that love for Jehovah accompanied with the love for one’s fellowman constitutes the heart of the Mosaic law. Go meant for His people to love by both precepts as they maintained a witness for Him in the midst of the Gentile nations.
    In verses 1 through 4 the writer discussed the expression of love in various realms: toward other Christians (Hebrews 13:1), Strangers (Hebrews 13:2), and sufferers (Hebrews 13:3), and in marriage (Hebrews 13:4).
    “Philadelphia” is the English transliteration of a Greek word meaning “brotherly love” Hebrews 13:1; Romans 12:10; 1 Thessalonians 4:9). The same word is also translated “love of the brethren” (1 Peter 1:22 and “brotherly kindness (1 Peter 1:7).
    The writer urged the continuation of this brotherly love (Hebrews 13:1), or love for other Christians. He did so since some were already showing this kind of love (Hebrews 6:10; Hebrews 10:33-34).
    Israel’s failure to bear witness to the heathen nations or how love and faith in God affected their lives drew rebuke of one prophet after another (Isaiah 66:2; Jeremiah 7:3; Ezekiel 16:60-63; Micah 6:8).
    I. Exhortations to Continue to Love (HEBREWS 13:1-4)
    A. Christian Love is Expected (Hebrews 13:1)
    B. Christian Love is Hospital (Hebrews 13:2)
    C. Christian Love Help Those that are Suffering (Hebrews 13:3)
    D. Christian Love Makes Marriage Honorable (Hebrews 13:4)

    II. The Christian Love Lifestyle Reflects their Relationship With Jesus Christ (Hebrews 13:5-9)
    A. A Christian Love lifestyle Functions independent of covetousness(Hebrews 13:5)
    B. A Christian Love Lifestyle is Dependent on Jesus Christ (Hebrews 13:6; John 15:4-7; Ephesians 6:10)
    C. A Christian Love Lifestyle Acknowledges Teachers who Taught them the word (Hebrews 13:7-8)

    III. A Christian Love Lifestyle is Maintained by Strong Doctrines (Hebrews 13:9; 5:10-14)
    A. Be Not Carried About with Divers and Strange
    Doctrines (Hebrews 13:9a)
    B. Sound Doctrines Establishes a Heart in Grace (Hebrews 13:9b)
    C. Sound Doctrines Makes us Less Dependent on the Flesh (Hebrews 13:9:c, Romans 8:1-8)

    IV. The New Christian Altar (Hebrews 13:10-16)
    A. An Entitlement for Christian Only (Hebrews 13:10-11)
    B. Jesus’ Blood Sanctify the Christian Altar (Hebrews 13:12-13)
    C. Christian Anticipates the Return of Jesus (Hebrews 13:14; Revelations 21:1-7)
    D. The Christian Praises are Offerings to God (Hebrews 13:15-16, Revelation 5:1-14; Psalm 47:1-2; Psalm 48:1)
    Truths to Practice:
    1. Christian love can be seen because it necessarily involves acts of kindness toward others (Hebrews 13:1-3).
    2. As Christians, we should make every effort to uphold by word and example the biblical ideal of marriage
    (Hebrews 13:4).
    3. The key to contentment is a proper appreciation of God’s goodness and wisdom (Hebrews 13:5-6).
    4. Those who faithfully teach and live the word of God should be held up as worthy examples for all Christians
    (Hebrews 13:7).
    5. Doctrinal stability is a mark of Christlikeness
    (Hebrews 13:8-9).
    6. Ritualism is no substitute for a personal relationship with Jesus (Hebrews 13:10-14).
    7. Praise without deeds is neither genuine nor God honoring (Hebrews 13:15-15).

    12. Faith Inspiration: FAITH IN THE MIDST OF A PANDEMIC: A Call to Faithfulness because of Who Jesus is.
    Background Scripture: 1 John
    SUBJECT: A Challenge to Love Responsibly (Hebrews 13:1-16; John 15:9-17)
    Introduction: In response to a Pharisee’s question, Jesus put the Mosaic law into the most concise form possible. He called attention to the two greatest commandments (Matthew 22:37-40; Deuteronomy 6:5; Leviticus19:18)

    Jesus said that love for Jehovah accompanied with the love for one’s fellowman constitutes the heart of the Mosaic law. Go meant for His people to love by both precepts as they maintained a witness for Him in the midst of the Gentile nations.
    In verses 1 through 4 the writer discussed the expression of love in various realms: toward other Christians (Hebrews 13:1), Strangers (Hebrews 13:2), and sufferers (Hebrews 13:3), and in marriage (Hebrews 13:4).
    “Philadelphia” is the English transliteration of a Greek word meaning “brotherly love” Hebrews 13:1; Romans 12:10; 1 Thessalonians 4:9). The same word is also translated “love of the brethren” (1 Peter 1:22 and “brotherly kindness (1 Peter 1:7).
    The writer urged the continuation of this brotherly love (Hebrews 13:1), or love for other Christians. He did so since some were already showing this kind of love (Hebrews 6:10; Hebrews 10:33-34).
    Israel’s failure to bear witness to the heathen nations or how love and faith in God affected their lives drew rebuke of one prophet after another (Isaiah 66:2; Jeremiah 7:3; Ezekiel 16:60-63; Micah 6:8).

    I. Exhortations to Continue to Love
    (HEBREWS 13:1-4)
    A. Christian Love is Expected (Hebrews 13:1)
    B. Christian Love is Hospital (Hebrews 13:2)
    C. Christian Love Help Those that are Suffering (Hebrews 13:3)
    D. Christian Love Makes Marriage Honorable (Hebrews 13:4)

    II. The Christian Love Lifestyle Reflects their Relationship With Jesus Christ (Hebrews 13:5-9)
    A. A Christian Love lifestyle Functions independent of covetousness(Hebrews 13:5)
    B. A Christian Love Lifestyle is Dependent on Jesus Christ (Hebrews 13:6; John 15:4-7; Ephesians 6:10)
    C. A Christian Love Lifestyle Acknowledges Teachers who Taught them the word (Hebrews 13:7-8)

    III. A Christian Love Lifestyle is Maintained by Strong Doctrines (Hebrews 13:9)
    A. Be Not Carried About with Divers and Strange
    Doctrines (Hebrews 13:9a)
    B. Sound Doctrines Establishes a Heart in Grace (Hebrews 13:9b)
    C. Sound Doctrines Makes us Less Dependent on the Flesh (Hebrews 13:9:c, Romans 8:1-8)

    IV. The New Christian Altar (Hebrews 13:10-16)
    A. An Entitlement for Christian Only (Hebrews 13:10-11)
    B. Jesus’ Blood Sanctify the Christian Altar (Hebrews 13:12-13)
    C. Christian Anticipates the Return of Jesus (Hebrews 13:14; Revelations 21:1-7)
    D. The Christian Praises are Offerings to God (Hebrews 13:15-16, Revelation 5:1-14; Psalm 47:1-2; Psalm 48:1)

    Truths to Practice:
    1. Christian love can be seen because it necessarily involves acts of kindness toward others (Hebrews 13:1-3).
    2. As Christians, we should make every effort to uphold by word and example the biblical ideal of marriage.
    (Hebrews 13:4).
    3. The key to contentment is a proper appreciation of God’s goodness and wisdom (Hebrews 13:5-6)
    4. Those who faithfully teach and live the word of God should be held up as worthy examples for all Christians.
    (Hebrews 13:7).
    5. Doctrinal stability is a mark of Christlikeness.
    (Hebrews 13:8-9)
    6. Ritualism is no substitute for a personal relationship with Jesus (Hebrews 13:10-14).
    7. Praise without deeds is neither genuine nor God honoring (Hebrews 13:15-15).

    2. A Call to pray. A Prayer Partner can enhance your prayer power. Become part of a pray partner team. In addition, please join us for Noonday Prayer on Wednesday, April 7. Our unified journey in prayer makes our journey more enjoyable. As we continue to pray read Matthew 26:36-46. Jesus Christ our Savior, High Priest and Redeemer is always available to us on our spiritual speed dial-God word (Hebrews 4:15-16). In fact, Jesus desires to help us in our burdens and struggles. Listen to Jesus open invitation, “Come to me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and My burden is light” (Matthew 11:28-30). Prayer is more than an opportunity to talk directly to God but an act of obedient to Him, for Jesus said, “Men should always pray and not faint” (Luke 18:1). Even the Apostle Paul insist that prayer is an endless act of obedience to God (1 Thessalonians 5:17). Your prayer of faith is giving us the edge in our war against Evil (Hebrews 11:6).

    12. Faith Inspiration: FAITH IN THE MIDST OF A PANDEMIC: A Call to Faithfulness because of Who Jesus is.
    Background Scripture: Hebrews 11
    SUBJECT: A Challenge to A Renewed Commitment (Hebrews 12:1-11) Next Lesson: A Challenge to Love Responsibly (Hebrews 13:1-16)
    Introduction: Every generation of God’s people passes the baton of committed living to the next and joins the cloud of witnesses who cheer for the present runners. In order to maintain the standard of faithfulness established by the heroes of chapter 11 and copied ever since, we need to strip away the nonessentials of life that get in the way and the sins that will trip us up and ruin our race.
    Commitment is a word of a different flavor. On the personal level it implies involvement. It suggests making an agreement or pledge to do something. It implies that the one who promised will share his time and energy to see that something accomplished.
    In many local churches, a handful of the people commit themselves to help do the church’s work. Often 80 or 90 percent sit in the pews as spectators. This does not mean they are idle; nearly all have outside interests. They are just too busy to work in the church’s prescribed programs. Specifically, Worship, Pray meeting, Sunday School, and Bible Study. These are the spiritual formation ministries of the church. In tonight lesson the writer of
    Hebrews appealed for a spiritual commitment. His readers needed to be stirred up (shakeup, troubled, turn-up-side down, invoke).
    As we run the race of committed living, we should think about how Jesus endured the hostility of His enemies (Hebrews 12:3). When we keep our focus on him, we will not give up before the race is over.
    I. Renewal Involves Running The Spiritual Race (HEBREWS 12:1-4)
    A. Strip off Weights (Hebrews 12:1a)
    B. Persevere (Hebrews 12:1b)
    C. Consider Jesus’ Example (Hebrews 12:2)
    D. Consider Your Responses (Hebrews 12:3-4)

    II. Renewal Involves Receiving God’s Discipline (Hebrews 12:5-8)
    A. Remember God’s Word (Hebrews 12:5-6)
    B. Remember that God Disciplines (Hebrews 12:7-8)
    C. Worship Requires Discipline (Hebrews 12:8)

    III. The Purpose and Goal of Discipline
    (Hebrews 12:9-11)
    A. Understand Why God Disciplines
    (Hebrews 12:9-10)
    B. Discipline Cultivate us to Bear Fruit
    (Hebrews 12:11; John 15:1-2)

    Truths to Practice:
    1. If we are to be Christlike, we must rid our lives of anything that prevents us from following Christ wholeheartedly (Hebrews 12:1).
    2. Following Jesus is not easy; it means enduring shame, opposition, and weariness (Hebrews 12:2-3).
    3. God has enabled us to resist sin, but it still involves great effort on our part (Hebrews 12:4).
    4. Divine discipline should be welcome as an evidence of God’s love and concern for us and an assurance of our relationship with Him (Hebrews 12:5-8).
    5. Let us always heed the Lord’s discipline, for it is essential for mature spiritual growth (Hebrews 12:9).
    6.Lives of righteousness and holiness cannot be produced by a carefree existence devoid of hardship and disciple (Hebrews 12:10-11).

    12. FAITH INSPIRATION: FAITH IN THE MIDST OF A PANDEMIC: A Call to Faithfulness because of Who Jesus is.
    Background Scripture: Hebrews 11
    SUBJECT: A Challenge to A Renewed Commitment (Hebrews 12:1-11)
    Introduction: Every generation of God’s people passes the baton of committed living to the next and joins the cloud of witnesses who cheer for the present runners. In order to maintain the standard of faithfulness established by the heroes of chapter 11 and copied ever since, we need to strip away the nonessentials of life that get in the way and the sins that will trip us up and ruin our race.
    Commitment is a word of a different flavor. On the personal level it implies involvement. It suggests making an agreement or pledge to do something. It implies that the one who promised will share his time and energy to see that something accomplished.
    In many local churches, a handful of the people commit themselves to help do the church’s work. Often 80 or 90 percent sit in the pews as spectators. This does not mean they are idle; nearly all have outside interests. They are just too busy to work in the church’s prescribed programs. Specifically, Worship, Pray meeting, Sunday School, and Bible Study. These are the spiritual formation ministries of the church. In tonight lesson the writer of Hebrews appealed for a spiritual commitment. His readers needed to be stirred up (shakeup, troubled, turn-up-side down, invoke).
    As we run the race of committed living, we should think about how Jesus endured the hostility of His enemies (Hebrews 12:3). When we keep our focus on him, we will not give up before the race is over.
    I. Renewal Involves Running The Spiritual Race (HEBREWS 12:1-4)
    A. Strip off Weights (Hebrews 12:1a)
    B. Persevere(Hebrews 12:1b)
    C. Consider Jesus’ Example (Hebrews 12:2)
    D. Consider Your Responses (Hebrews 12:3-4)

    II. Renewal Involves Receiving God’s Discipline (Hebrews 12:5-8)
    A. Remember God’s Word(Hebrews 12:5-6)
    B. Remember that God Disciplines Sons (Hebrews 12:7-8)
    C. Sonship Requires Discipline (Hebrews 12:8)

    III. The Purpose and Goal of Discipline (Hebrews 12:9-11)
    A. Understand Why God Disciplines(Hebrews 12:9-10)
    B. Discipline Cultivate us to Bear Fruit (Hebrews 12:11; John 15:1-2)
    Truths to Practice:
    1. If we are to be Christlike, we must rid our lives of anything that prevents us from following Christ whole heartedly (Hebrews 12:1).
    2. Following Jesus is not easy; it means enduring shame, opposition, and weariness (Hebrews 12:2-3).
    3. God has enabled us to resist sin, but it still involves great effort on our part (Hebrews 12:4)
    4. Divine discipline should be welcome as an evidence of God’s love and concern for us and an assurance of our relationship with Him (Hebrews 12:5-8).
    5. Let us always heed the Lord’s discipline, for it is essential for mature spiritual growth (Hebrews 12:9).
    6. Lives of righteousness and holiness cannot be produced by a carefree existence devoid of hardship and disciple (Hebrews 12:10-11).

    Pledges can be given in a lump sum or piece by piece until completed. When you return the pledge envelope please indicate what method you will use. Pledges will be used for mortgage relief. Easter Sunday Morning Worship Events – Two Services: Sunday School at 8:45 and both In person and Recorded Video at 10:00 A.M. Sunrise service will resume in 2022.

    2. A Call to pray. Pray that our faith will help us overcome fear. Please join us for Noonday Prayer on Wednesday, March 24th. Our Journey in Prayer grants us the great privilege to speak directly to God. As you continue to pray read Psalm 73. Keep in mind that our Savior, High Priest and Redeemer is always available to us on our spiritual speed dial (Hebrews 4:15). In fact, Jesus Desires to help us in our burdens and struggles. Listen to Jesus open invitation, “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and My burden is light” (Matthew 11:28-30). Prayer is more than an opportunity to talk directly to God but an act of obedient to Him, for Jesus said, “Men should always pray and not faint” (Luke 18:1). Even the Apostle Paul insist that prayer is an endless act of obedience to God (1 Thessalonians 5:17). Cannot wait to pray with you. Additionally, the Corona Virus is still raising havoc in our communities. Especially, in the African American Community. With our prayers of faith, we are winning the war against Evil.

    3. Covid19 Testing and Tracing Goal-Herd Immunity: Tracing is particularly important to understand when keeping safe from the Corona Virus. In other words, be aware of people you are in contact with. Places where you socialize must be carefully considered? Be wise. Have you been tested? Have people in your family been tested. Keep in mind that a person who has no symptoms are asymptomatic; might be infected. The CDC recommends that we should be tested once a month. So, throw someone a life preserver by getting tested and then encourage others to get tested. We have reached another tragic and horrific Milestone, over 500.000+ deaths and climbing.
    Good news on the front to fight the virus. Pfizer have a vaccine that
    has been proven to be 90% effective and Moderna effective is 94.5%
    in fighting Covid-19. News Flash Johnson and Johnson just
    introduce a vaccine that requires just one dose. In Addition,
    President Joe Biden is taking aggressive steps to defeat Covid-19.

    Finally, a confident Union officer named Ulysses S. Grant came to Lincoln’s attention. Instead of dodging Lee. Grant used the strategy of hounding him and attacking whenever possible.
    Confidence in Jesus Christ is essential for a victorious spiritual walk. Our lesson for today’s lesson emphasizes trusting our great High Priest.

    1. A Call to pray. Pray that our faith will help us overcome fear. Please join us for Noonday Prayer on Wednesday, February 17. Our Journey in Prayer provokes a greater nearness to God. As you continue to pray read John 17:1-26. Keep in mind that our Savior, High Priest and Redeemer is always available to us on our spiritual speed dial (Hebrews 4:15). There is no pain or disappointment that we cannot talk to Him about. He is our Abba. The one who parent us through our greatest fears. In our prayers let us thank God for giving us a President with a heart of flesh instead a heart of stone (Ezekiel 36:26). In fact, our faith in Jesus should be even the more embolden because He brought us through the political nightmare of the presidential election. Let us not forget Jesus’ invitation to pray “If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.” (John 14:14) Please join us in an act of obedience by praying at noon. Cannot wait to pray with you. Always keep in mind that godly wisdom is not separate from faith, because faith produces wisdom and spiritual courage. Additionally, the Corona Virus is still raising havoc in our communities. Especially, in the African American Community. With our prayers of faith, we are winning the war against Evil.

A test could save someone’s life.
    So, throw someone a life preserver by getting them to get tested. We have reached another tragic and horrific Milestone, over 400.000+ deaths and climbing. Fall and winter numbers has significantly increased. Be wise and get your flu shot as soon as possible. Many drug stores have it on hand and it’s free.

    FAITH IN THE MIDST OF A PANDEMIC:
    A Call to Faithfulness because of Who Jesus is.
    Scripture for Exposition: Hebrews 11
    SUBJECT: A CHALLENGE TO BE MATURE
    Introduction: Jews who trusted in Christ in the first century often did not make a complete break with Judaism. They had been trained all their lives to worship as Moses had taught.
    In addition, they listened to their rabbinic leaders who, from the time of the Babylonian Captivity, had constructed an elaborate religious system that sometimes had little in common with the Mosaic law (Matthew 15:1-14). Their ideas became the oral traditions of Judaism that were recorded in a voluminous work called the Talmud. The Writer of Hebrews argued on behalf of the superiority of Christ’s person and priesthood in chapters 1 through 10. He concluded the epistle to the Christian walk.
    The writer had referred to the Melchizedekian priesthood, which had outranked that of Aaron (Hebrews 5:6-10); Christ’s priesthood was superior to the Aaron priesthood because it was of the order of Melchizedekian.
    The phrase “of whom” (Heb 5:11), or concerning which, refers to the Melchizedekian priesthood, The writer wanted to say more about this subject, but he saw a problem with the people’s understanding because of their limited spiritual development. The Apostle Paul had this same problem with the church at Corinth (1 Corinthians 3:1-3). It seems that persecution by Jews had caused some believers to give up their Christian profession and return to the tenets of Judaism. They therefore had not developed in their faith.
    Familiarity with the readers had enabled the writer to gauge their needs. They would be helped by encouragement, but they were not able to digest advance truth. He therefore exercised self-restraint with respect to saying more about Melchizedek.
    Some people are more receptive to spiritual teaching than are others. Some believers are mature enough to receive in-depth spiritual truths; others may not be (Acts 17:11; 1 Thessalonians 2:130.
    The readers of the epistle had retrogressed. Instead of being teachable as before, they were “dull of hearing” (Hebrews 5:11), or sluggish in their hearing. What once had excited their thinking about Christ and stimulated their Christian performance no longer had that effect. They were sluggish in their reception of God’s truth (Matthew 13:11-16)
    1. THE STUNDED CHRISTIAN GROWTH (Hebrews 5:11-14)
    A. The Sluggishness Problem (Hebrews 5:11)
    B. The Milk Problem(Hebrews 5:12)
    C. The Evidence of Spiritual Immaturity (Hebrews 5:13-14)

    2. THE EXHORTATION TO GROW SPIRITUALLY (Hebrews 6:1-3)
    A. The Goal of Maturity(Hebrews 6:1a)
    B. The Foundation Truths (Hebrews 6:1b-2)
    C. The Need for God’s Involvement(Hebrews 6:3)

    3. APOSTASY CAUSES SPIRITUAL DWARFISM (Hebrews 6:4-5)
    A. Apostasy is not a Good Alternative to Spiritual Growth (Hebrews 6:4-6)
    B. The Consequence of Apostasy (Hebrews 6:7-8)
    C. The Consequence of Rejecting Apostasy (Hebrews 6:9-10
    Scripture Truths to Practice:
    1. Every Christian should be progressing toward spiritual maturity (Hebrews 5:11-12).
    2. Spiritual growth requires a commitment to learning the Word of God and Learning to apply the Word to everyday life (Hebrews 5:13-14).
    3. No matter how well-grounded we are in the Christian Faith, we must never be satisfied with resting upon that foundation; there is still much for all of us to learn (Hebrews 6:1-3)
    4. Those who have enjoyed the privilege of biblical instruction and then turn from it run the risk of losing forever the opportunity to be saved (Hebrews 6:4-8).
    5. The godly works that accompany salvation assure us that we are pressing on in our faith rather than falling back (Hebrews 5:9-10).
    6. If Old Testament believers could trust God even with the limited revelation they had received, surely, we who have God’s completed revelation can also live by faith (Hebrews 11:39-40;).

    FAITH IN THE MIDST OF A PANDEMIC: A Call
    to Faithfulness because of Who Jesus is. HEBREWS
    11.
    Scripture for Exposition: Hebrews 11
    Introduction: In our series of lessons on Faith we will focus on a call to be faithfulness to Christ because of who He is and what He has done.
    The book of Hebrews was written to first-century Christians who were saved out of Judaism. The writer’s purpose was to demonstrate the superiority of Jesus Christ in His Person over all human and angelic beings and the superiority of His work and sacrificial ministry to the Mosaic priestly system.
    The writer did not name himself, and we do not know when he wrote or who the original recipients were. By giving a wide array of reasons to be confident in Christ, the writer encouraged Jewish Christians to be faithful when they might otherwise have apostatized because of persecution.
    The writer emphasized the importance of faith to a persevering life of godliness. He emphasized that faith is the basis of one’s hope to receive the eternal promises of God. The basic meaning of the term translated “substance” is something that is set under something else to support it. It is used of a strong base or foundation that will firmly hold what is put on it so that one can have complete assurance in what it holds.
    For this reason, the term translated “substance” (Hebrew 11:1) carried the ideas of assurance and confidence, “that” steadiness of mind which holds one firm (II Corinthians 9:4).

    Points to Ponder: Hebrews 11:1-40

    1. THE NATURE OF FAITH (HEBREWS 11:1-6)
    A. The Partnership of Faith and Hope
    (Hebrews11:1-2)
    B. The Power of Faith and Creation
    (Hebrews 11:3)
    C. Faith and Our Attitude Toward God (Hebrews11:4-5)
    D. Faith and God’s Existence
    (Hebrews 11:6-7; Genesis 5:21-24)
    2. God Working in the Lives of People with Faith in God (Hebrews 11:8-16)
    A. Faith and Abraham’s Call
    (Hebrews 11:8-9; Genesis 12:1-4)
    B. Faith and Abraham’s Focus (Hebrews 11:10)
    C. Faith and the Challenges for God to fulfill His Promises (Hebrews 11:11-14 Genesis 16:1-5; 17:15-22)
    D. Faith is the Fuel for Perseverance
    (Hebrews 11:15-16)

    3. Faith Accepts the Challenge to Trust God
    (Hebrew 11:17-19; Proverbs 3:5-10)
    A. Abraham’s Sacrificial Faith When Tested (Hebrew 11:17; Genesis 22:1-19)
    B. Faith Trust the Worthiness of God’s Word(Hebrews 11:18-19; Genesis 17:17-19; Romans4:17-19)
    C. Faith Forecast God’s Promises to be Fulfilled (Hebrews 11:20)

    Scripture Truths to Practice:
    1. Faith in God is exhibited by complete confidence in unseen realities (Hebrews 11:1-2; John 20:24-29).
    2. Belief in God’s supernatural creation is a true test of biblical faith (Hebrews 11:3).
    3. All efforts at pleasing God are worthless if they are not accompanied with faith in Him (Hebrews 11:6)
    4. God calls us to walk by faith, trusting in His Word; we are not to wait for His word to be confirm before we believe (Hebrew 11:7; II Corinthians 5:7; 1 Peter1:8-9).
    5. The life of faith is a lifelong pursuit that requires great perseverance.
    (Hebrews 11:8-10, 13-16; II Corinthians 11:22-28).
    6. If Old Testament believers could trust God even with the limited revelation they had received, surely, we who have God’s completed revelation can also live by faith (Hebrews 11:39-40).

  • WEDNESDAY, January 20, 2021

    1. A Call to pray. Pray that our faith will help us overcome fear. Please join us for Noonday Prayer on Wednesday, January 27th. Our Journey in Prayer continues. As you continue to pray read Psalm 32. Keep in mind that our Savior, High Priest and Redeemer is aware of all that we are dealing with (Hebrews 4:15). There is no pain or disappointment that we cannot talk to Him about. He is our Abba. The one who parent us through our greatest fears. Our Faith in Jesus cannot be sidelined in the context of this present Pandemic, Social, Racial, or political Nightmare. In fact, our faith in Jesus should be even the more embolden. Let us not forget Jesus’ invitation to pray “If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.” (John 14:14) Please join us in an act of obedience by praying at noon. Cannot wait to pray with you. Always keep in mind that godly wisdom is not separate from faith, because faith produces wisdom and spiritual courage. Additionally, the Corona Virus is still raising havoc in our communities. Especially, in the African American Community. With our prayers of faith, we are winning the war against Evil.
    .
    2. Covid19 Testing and Tracing: Tracing is particularly important to understand when keeping safe from the Corona Virus. In other words, be aware of people you are in contact with. Places where you socialize must be carefully considered? Be wise. Have you been tested? Have people in your family been tested. Keep in mind that a person who has no symptoms might be infected. A test could save someone’s life. So, throw someone a life preserver by getting them to get tested. We have reached another tragic and horrific Milestone, over 4327 a daily record high, and 399.000+ deaths and climbing. Fall and winter numbers has significantly increased. Be wise and get your flu shot as soon as possible. Many drug stores have it on hand. Walmart, Publix, and many others have it as well. If you are a senior 65 and above, you must get a booster flu shot. Good news on the front to fight the virus. Pfizer have a vaccine that has been proven to be 90% effective and Moderna effective is 94.5% in fighting Covid-19.

In other words, God became a human being. For many it is difficult to understand God being a human being. Therefore, we often tend to highlight Jesus’ divinity more than His humanity.

    The teachings of Jesus’ incarnation must
    not be diminished by belittling His humanity
    while highlighting His divinity. Jesus is in essence
    Immanuel (God in Us). One of the teachings that
    the Jewish Leader held against Jesus is that
    He identified Himself as being the same as God
    the Father (John 10:30, 17:4-5, 17:22). Because
    Because of this claim by Jesus to forgive sins
    they sort to kill Him (Luke 5:21, 24).
    Jesus Christ, God’s one and only Son, is clearly
    and preeminently exalted as deity. In simple yet
    profound terms, Jesus is set forth so that all may
    believe that He is indeed the Son of God. In the
    end, as we read this Gospel, we are brought to
    see that life eternal, for time and eternity,
    begins with Jesus Christ.”

    CONDITIONS OF THE HEART: A Repenting Heart
    Scripture for Exposition: Psalm 51
    Introduction: The heart is the seat of our affection. The bible often makes reference to the heart. By its many references it means that it plays a significant role in our relationship with God and other believers.
    The heart I am talking about is not the unregenerate heart of the unbeliever but the spiritually conditioned heart that can comprehend and acknowledge the presences and existence of God truths (Ezekiel 11:19-21).
    The bible makes references to both heart conditions. Throughout the bible it makes a clear distinction between the two. The spiritually condition heart functions in obedience to Jesus Christ of Nazareth
    (Romans 8:1-9). On the other hand, the carnal or unregenerate heart cannot be obedient to Jesus (Romans 8:7).
    Tonight, we will study King David’s repenting to God. Therefore, let us examine our own hearts and then let us repent of our sins.
    How does God deal with those who fall? Is it possible to be restored to fellowship with Him? What is our proper response when we fall into sin? Some of the Psalms give answers to these questions because they are prayers of repentance. Perhaps the best known of these is Psalm 51, in which guilt but repentant David confessed his sin and implored God for renewal and restoration. It has much to teach us—we who still fall short of God’s glory (Romans 3:23)

    Points to Ponder: Romans 10:1-11

    1. A Confession of Sin (Psalm 1-6)
    Cleansing Craved (Psalm 51:1-2)
    Guilt Acknowledge (Psalm 51:3-4)
    Depravity Recognized (Psalm 51:5-6)

    2. A Plea for Renewal (Psalm 51:7-12)
    Renewal of Purity (Psalm 51:7)
    Renewal of Joy (Psalm 51:8)
    Renewal of Fellowship (Psalm 51:9-12)

    3. A Desire to Witness and Worship
    (Psalm 51:13-15)
    An Opportunity to Convert Sinners
    (Psalm 51:13; Matthew 7:1-5)
    A Renew Appreciation for God’s Mercy
    (Psalm 51:14)
    A Commitment to Unhindered Praise
    (Psalm 51:15)

    4. God’s Expectations of a Repenting Heart (Psalm 51:16-19)
    God Does Not Want Empty Religious Jesters (Psalm 51:16)
    God Wants Genuine Acts of Repentance
    (Psalm 51:17)
    God Demands the Sacrifices of Righteousness (Psalm 51:18-19; Matthew 5:6)

    Scripture Proofs: Heart (823 Times in the bible)
    1. God knows the heart (1 Samuel 16:7)
    2. The Heart is full of deceit (Jeremiah 17:9)
    3. The Heart is Evil (Genesis 8:21)
    4. The Heart can be Converted (Romans 10:8-11)
    5. The Heart can be hardened (Exodus 7, 8)

    CONDITIONS OF THE HEART: A Repenting Heart
    Scripture for Exposition: Psalm 51
    Introduction: The heart is the seat of our affection. The bible often makes reference to the heart. By its many references it means that it plays a significant role in our relationship with God and other believers.
    The heart I am talking about is not the unregenerate heart of the unbeliever but the spiritually conditioned heart that can comprehend and acknowledge the presences and existence of God truths (Ezekiel 11:19-21).
    The bible makes references to both heart conditions. Throughout the bible it makes a clear distinction between the two. The spiritually condition heart functions in obedience to Jesus Christ of Nazareth
    (Romans 8:1-9). On the other hand, the carnal or unregenerate heart cannot be obedient to Jesus (Romans 8:7).
    Tonight, we will study King David’s repenting to God. Therefore, let us examine our own hearts and then let us repent of our sins.
    How does God deal with those who fall? Is it possible to be restored to fellowship with Him? What is our proper response when we fall into sin? Some of the Psalms give answers to these questions because they are prayers of repentance. Perhaps the best known of these is Psalm 51, in which guilt but repentant David confessed his sin and implored God for renewal and restoration. It has much to teach us—we who still fall short of God’s glory (Romans 3:23)
    Points to Ponder: Romans 10:1-11

    1. A Confession of Sin (Psalm 1-6)
    Cleansing Craved (Psalm 51:1-2)
    Guilt Acknowledge (Psalm 51:3-4)
    Depravity Recognized (Psalm 51:5-6)

    2. A Plea for Renewal (Psalm 51:7-12)
    Renewal of Purity (Psalm 51:7)
    Renewal of Joy (Psalm 51:8)
    Renewal of Fellowship (Psalm 51:9-12)

    3. A Desire to Witness and Worship
    (Psalm 51:13-15)
    An Opportunity to Convert Sinners (Psalm 51:13; Matthew 7:1-5)
    A Renew Appreciation for God’s Mercy (Psalm 51:14)
    A Commitment to Unhindered Praise (Psalm 51:15)

    4.God’s Expectations of a Repenting Heart (Psalm 51:16-19)
    God Does Not Want Empty Religious Jesters (Psalm 51:16)
    God Wants Genuine Acts of Repentance (Psalm 51:17)
    God Demands the Sacrifices of Righteousness (Psalm 51:18-19; Matthew 5:6)

    Scripture Proofs: Heart (823 Times in the bible)
    1. God knows the heart (1 Samuel 16:7)
    2. The Heart is full of deceit (Jeremiah 17:9)
    3. The Heart is Evil (Genesis 8:21)
    4. The Heart can be Converted (Romans 10:8-11)
    5. The Heart can be hardened (Exodus 7, 8)

  • WEDNESDAY, November 11, 2020

    1. A Call to pray. Pray that our faith will help us overcome fear. Please join us for Noonday Prayer on Wednesday, November 18th. Our Journey in Prayer continues. As you continue to pray read in Matthew 11:28-30. Keep in mind that our Savior, High Priest and Redeemer is aware of all that we are dealing with (Hebrews 4:15). There is no pain or disappointment that we cannot talk to Him about. He is our Abba. The one who parent us through our greatest fear. Our Faith in Jesus cannot be sidelined in the context of this present Pandemic, Social, Racial, or political unrest. In fact, our faith in Jesus should be even the more embolden. Let us not forget Jesus’ invitation to pray “If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.” (John 14:14) Please join us in an act of obedience by praying at noon. Cannot wait to pray with you. Always keep in mind that godly wisdom is not separate from faith, because faith produces wisdom and spiritual courage. Additionally, the coronavirus is still raising havoc in our communities. Especially, in the African American Community. With our prayers of faith, we are winning the war against Evil.
    .
    2. Covid19 Testing and Tracing: Tracing is particularly important to understand when keeping safe from the Coronavirus. In other words, be aware of people you are in contact with. Places where you socialize must be carefully considered? Be wise. Have you been tested? Have people in your family been tested. Keep in mind that a person who have no symptoms might be infected. A test could save someone’s life. So, throw someone a life preserver by getting them to get tested. We have reached another tragic and horrific Milestone, over 240,000+ deaths and climbing. Fall and winter numbers will greatly increase. Be wise and get your flu shot as soon as possible. Many drug stores have it on hand. Walmart, Publix, and many others have it as well. If you are a senior 65 and above, you must get a booster flu shot. Good News on the front to fight the virus. Pfizer have a vaccine that has been proven to be 90% effective in fighting Covid-19. In Addition, President-Elect Joe Biden is taking aggressive actions to defeat Covid-19.

    3. Personal Devotion “Our Daily Bread” The Next issue of Our Daily Bread (September, October, and November) is at the church. We have stacks of them.

    Tonight, as we study a portion of Paul’s letter to the Romans let us examine our own hearts.

    Points to Ponder: Romans 10:1-11

    1. Paul’s Burning Passion for Israel (Romans 10:1-3; John 3:16-15-18,
    2 Peter 3:9)
    2. Paul’s Explains God’s Righteousness (Romans 10:4-5; John 1:17)
    3. Paul’s Challenged Israel’s Assumptions about Making Jesus Available (Romans 10:6-7; Acts 2:36-38)
    4. Paul Makes the Case, Jesus as the Means for Salvation (Romans 10:8-9; Acts 4:10-14)
    5. Paul Claims that a Confession of Faith Makes Salvation Possible (Romans 10:10-11)

    Scripture for Exposition: Job 2:1-10
    Introduction: The perpetual question for many Christians is—Lord how did I get here? Especially when we have been faithful and obedient to our Christ. For many of us it is a heart break moment.
    Like Job’s wife we often do not understand God’s love, grace, and mercy in the context of our pain and heartache. For many it is a puzzlement that is often repeated in our quest to fulfill God’s will and purpose for us. .
    Perhaps the most upsetting and confusing thing is trying to determine why did God allowed it to happen. Although, Job is hurting he was still loyal in giving God worship (Job 1:20-22). However, Job’s wife could not come to grip with the drastic change that came upon them suddenly.
    Like most of us sudden and unexpected changes cause havoc with our faith in God. Like Jesus’ disciples who was caught in a storm said to Jesus, “Master, carest thou not that we perish” (Mark 5:38)?

    Points to Ponder: Job 2:1-10

    1. Satan have His Eyes on You (Job 2:1; Luke 22:31; John 10:10-11; 1 Peter 5:8)
    2. Satan is seeking ways to discredit your witness God (Job 2:2-3, Matthew 4)
    3. Satan has an Attack plan designed to make you break fellowship with God (Job 2:4-5;)
    4. Satan Efforts are limited by God’s Sovereign Power (Job 2:6; Matthew 28:18; John 10:17-18)
    5. Satan’s attacks our flesh to intimidate our support system (Job 2:7-10)

    3. Voter Registration and Census: Be careful of the lie rationale. I would like to encourage each of us to Vote in the general election on November 3rd. Absentee voting and mail in voting are also a good way to go. If you were not able or ineligible to vote in the primary elections, it does not mean you cannot vote in the general election. For additional information call Sister Shirley Lawrence. Additionally, taking the census will qualify our community to receive more economic resources to help improve our community.

    The upcoming election is one of the most important elections of our lifetime. Before the next election make sure you know where you will be voting. Check with the Voter Registration office to make sure. Keep in mind that elections have consequences. Our Postal Service is under attack. Mail in voting could determine the outcome of the Presidential election and down ballet voting. Here are some things you can do immediately: (1) Call or write your Senator or Congressman. (2) Circulate or sign a petition to voice your concern about the abrupt changes to the Postal System. (3) Contact your local officials (Councilman, Mayor, State officials and the Governor. (4) Be knowledgeable of your voting rights and help your family and friends to understand them. Let us get in “Good Trouble” John Lewis. Vote Early!!

    Faith Inspiration –Lord, How Did I Get Here?
    An Introduction:

    Jesus Christ of Nazareth is Lord Indeed: Philippians 2:5-11; Colossians 1:16-18
    Scripture for Exposition: Acts 27
    Introduction: Shipwrecks are a significant part of all our lives. In fact, some of us are still experiencing the effects of mistakes and bad choices we have made early in life.
    Paul gives us a view of how to handle the many unavoidable human events-shipwrecks. Shipwrecks come in all forms. Hebrews chapter 11 gives us the overview of how God rescued His people time and time again. Although, each of us often does all we could to avoid them it still comes.
    The task then is for us to learn how to survive and subdue our shipwrecks. God’s got a plan to rescue us from shipwrecks. He knows when, where and how we are going to be delivered.

    Points to Ponder: Acts 27:37-44

    1. Shipwrecks offers us an opportunity to throw away the weight of Self-Interest (Acts 27:37-38; Acts 27:10; Hebrews 12:1-11)
    2. Shipwrecks limits our ability to accept God’s plan for our rescue (Acts 27:39-40; Abraham and Sarah Genesis 16)
    3. Shipwrecks are always on a collision course with God’s will (Acts 27:41-42; Acts 5:34-39)
    4. Shipwrecks does not diminish God’s power to protect or defend His Servant (Acts 27:43; Psalm 91)
    5. Shipwrecks gives us an opportunity to view God plan to rescue the helpless (Acts 27:44; Mark 9:24)

  • WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 14, 2020

    1. A Call to pray. Pray that our faith will help us overcome fear. Please join us for Noonday Prayer on Wednesday, October 21. Our Journey in Prayer continues. As you continue to pray, read Psalm 51. Keep in mind that our Savior, High Priest and Redeemer is aware of all that we are dealing with (Hebrews 4:15). There is no pain or disappointment that we cannot talk to Him about. He is our Abba. The one who parent us through our greatest fear. Our Faith in Jesus cannot be side lined in the context of this present Pandemic, Social, Racial, or political unrest. In fact, our faith in Jesus should be even the more embolden. Let us not forget Jesus’ invitation to pray “If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.” (John 14:14) Please join us in an act of obedience by praying at noon. Cannot wait to pray with you.
    Always keep in mind that godly wisdom is not separate from faith, because faith produces wisdom and spiritual courage. Additionally, the coronavirus is still raising havoc in our communities. Especially, in the African American Community. With our prayers of faith, we are winning the war against Evil.
    .
    2. Covid19 Testing and Tracing: Tracing is particularly important to understand when keeping safe from the Coronavirus. In other words, be aware of people you are in contact with. Places where you socialize must be carefully considered? Be wise. Have you been tested? Have people in your family been tested. Keep in mind that a person who have no symptoms might be infected. A test could save someone’s life. So, throw someone a life preserver by getting them to get tested. We have reached a tragic and horrific Milestone, over 213,000 death and climbing. Fall and winter numbers will greatly increase. Be wise and get your flu shot as soon as possible. Many drug stores have it on hand. Walmart, Publix, and many others have it as well. If you are a senior 65 and above, you must get a booster flu shot.

    3. Voter Registration and Census: Be careful of the lie rationale. I would like to encourage each of us to Vote in the general election on November 3rd. Absentee voting and mail in voting are also a good way to go. If you were not able or ineligible to vote in the primary elections, it does not mean you cannot vote in the general election. For additional information call Sister Shirley Lawrence. Additionally, taking the census will qualify our community to receive more economic resources to help improve our community.

    The upcoming election is one of the most important elections of our lifetime. Before the next election make sure you know where you will be voting. Check with the Voter Registration office to make sure. Keep in mind that elections have consequences. Our Postal Service is under attack. Mail in voting could determine the outcome of the Presidential election and down ballet voting. Here are some things you can do immediately: (1) Call or write your Senator or Congressman. (2) Circulate or sign a petition to voice your concern about the abrupt changes to the Postal System. (3) Contact your local officials (Councilman, Mayor, State officials and the Governor. (4) Be knowledgeable of your voting rights and help your family and friends to understand them. Let us get in “Good Trouble” John Lewis. Vote Early!!

    An Introduction:

    Jesus is Lord Over Our Shipwrecks” Acts 27.
    Introduction: Shipwrecks are a part of all our lives. In fact, some of us are still experiencing the effects of mistakes and bad choices we have made early in life.
    Paul gives us a view of how to handle the many unavoidable human events-shipwrecks. Shipwrecks comes in all forms. Each of us do all we can to avoid them as much as possible but often with truly little success.
    The task then is for us to learn how to survive and subdue our shipwrecks.

    Points to Ponder: 1 Timothy 1:19-20
    1. Shipwrecks are caused when we ignore God’s Warnings or Admonishments (Acts 27:17-19; 1 Kings 9:1-9)
    2. Shipwrecks should lead us to acknowledge and understand that our strength is limited (Acts 27:20; Philippians 4:13, 19; 2 Corinthians 12:7-10)
    3. Shipwrecks requires a Spiritual strategy to Survive (Acts 27:21-25; 2 Chronicles 7:14; John 16:13-15)
    4. Shipwreck must deal with the “However” (Acts 27:26-30; Romans 8:28)
    5. Shipwrecks are an opportunity to let Godly Wisdom prevail (Acts 27:31-36; Proverbs 3:5-10)

    Coming Attractions: Job 2
    Faith Inspiration – Lord, How Did I Get Here?
    An Introduction:

    Jesus is Lord Over Our Shipwrecks” Acts 27.
    Introduction: Shipwrecks are a part of all our lives. In fact, some of us are still experiencing the effects of mistakes and bad choices we made early in life.
    Paul gives us a view of how to handle the many unavoidable human events-shipwrecks. Shipwrecks comes in all forms. Each of us do all we can to avoid them as much as possible but often with very little success.
    The task then is for us to learn how to survive and subdue our shipwrecks.

    Points to Ponder
    1. Shipwrecks often starts with a well intention decision (Acts 27:1-3)
    2. Shipwrecks are often proceeded by warning signs (Acts 27:4-8)
    3. Shipwrecks are often accommodated by God Sending His Spokesman (Acts 27:9-10; Genesis 16)
    4. Shipwrecks are often facilitated by Man’s Wisdom and Expertise (Acts 27:11-13)
    5. Shipwrecks often leads us to the unanticipated consequences (Acts 27:14-15)
    6. Second warning: Shipwreck Delayed (Acts 27:16)

    1. A Call to pray. Pray that our faith will help us overcome fear. Please join us for Noonday Prayer on Wednesday, September 30. Our Journey in Prayer continues. As you continue to pray read the Gospel of Matthew chapter 26:36-46. Keep in mind that our Savior, High Priest and Redeemer is aware of all that we are dealing with. There is no pain or disappointment that we cannot talk to Him about. He is our Abba. The one who parent us through our greatest fear. Our Faith in Jesus cannot be side lined in the context of this present Pandemic, Social, Racial, or political unrest. In fact, our faith in Jesus should be even the more embolden. Let us not forget Jesus’ invitation to pray “If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.” (John 14:14) Please join us in an act of obedience by praying at noon. Cannot wait to pray together.
    Always keep in mind that godly wisdom is not separate from faith, because faith produces wisdom and spiritual courage. Additionally, the coronavirus is still raising havoc in our communities. Especially, in the African American Community. With faith we are winning the war against Evil.

    2. Covid19 Testing and Tracing: Tracing is particularly important to understand when keeping safe from the Coronavirus. In other words, be aware of people you are in contact with. Places where you socialize must be carefully considered? Be wise. Have you been tested? Have people in your family been tested. Keep in mind that a person who have no symptoms might be infected. A test could save someone’s life. So, throw someone a life preserver by getting them to get tested. Red Cross is also a good place to get tested. Phone #800-733-2767. Milestone 200,000 and climbing.

    THE LORDSHIP OF JESUS: JESUS IS LORD OVER ALL
    INTRODUCTION: Jesus came down from His heavenly home to save us. He laid aside the cloak of royalty and entered the world as a human, subject to sin and shame. Though He was rich, for our sakes, He became poor. He lived a sinless life but died on a shameful cross. Then God exalted Him. He came as a babe in a cradle, but no He wears a crown. The cross was once an object of same, but to all who love and believe in Jesus, it is a symbol of His Glory.
    When Jesus died and when He rose from the dead, so did our sin; so did our hope. No other religious leader or person in the history of the world can make that claim.
    Because Jesus’ crucifixion and Resurrection those who believe in Him and live according to His example will also rise. Christians don’t stay in their tombs when they die. Tombs are for the dead, but all those who are in Christ rise to eternal life. This means that, though our bodies will remain in the grave until Jesus’ second coming, our spirits go immediately to heaven to be with the Lord (2 Corinthians 5:8).
    However, at times, it may seem as though we are entombed and that the pressures and stress of living in an ungodly world are getting the best of us. We should be encouraged because God is faithful. He can break the ties to oppress us or hold us in bondage. The Holy Spirit is the one who sets us free from our tombs.

    Our lesson tonight challenges us to reexamine the value of Jesus’ sacrificial Death on the Cross. When Paul wrote to the Philippians, he was encouraging them to embraced the solid foundation of their faith. The value of Jesus’ Death is our escort to eternal life. Let us worship Him for his Gift of grace.

    EPOSITION: Philippians 2:5-12
    I. A Christ Centered Mind (Philippians 2:5-7)
    A. A Choice to Have a Christ Centered Mind (Philippians
    2:5-6; 1 Corinthians 2:16)
    B. A Mind Determined to Be a Servant Of God (Philippians 2:7a)
    C. God In fleshed in Human Form (incarnation),
    (Philippians 2:7b; John 1:12-14)

    II. Attitude of A Christ Centered Mind (Philippians 2:8)

    A. Jesus Christ Was a Human Being (Philippians 2:8a)
    B. Jesus Christ is Our Example in Obedience (Philippians 2:8b
    C. Jesus Christ Obedience Fulfilled God’s Purpose for Our Salvation (Philippians 2:8c)

    III. God Exalted Jesus Christ (Philippians 2:9-12)
    A. God Highly Exalted Jesus Christ (Philippians 2:9)
    B. Jesus Christ Name Bows Every Knee (Philippians 2:10)
    C. Jesus Christ Name Commands Every Tongue (Philippians 2:11)

    Points to Ponder:
    1. The mind of Jesus is a choice and not an option (Philippians 2:5)
    2. The Mind of Jesus helps us be in the Image of God (Philippians 2:6)
    3. The Mind of Jesus positions the Christin to be Obedient to God’s Will (Philippians 2:7-8)
    4. Jesus’ Obedience Made Him Worthy of Worship (Philippians 2:9; Revelation 5)
    5. Jesus Obedience to God gave Him absolute authority over the world (Philippians 2:10-11)

    THE LORDSHIP OF JESUS CHRIST: Jesus is Lord Over Water
    INTRODUCTION: Jesus performed miracles for various reasons: to demonstrate His compassion (Matthew 14:14), to demonstrate His deity (John 14:13), to fulfill prophecy (John 6:14), and to alleviate suffering and pain (Mark 5:34). John’s Gospel records eight miracles that Jesus performed. Jesus turns water to wine (John 2), signifying Jesus as Creator. He heals the government official’s son (John 4), symbolizing Jesus as healer. He then heals the lame man at Bethesda (John 5), which portrayed Jesus as God.
    In Chapter 6 Jesus feeds 5,000 men, which signified Jesus is the Bread of life. In the same chapter, Jesus walked on water because He is the Lord over nature, In chapter 9, he heals the man born blind because He is the Light of the World. In Chapter 11, Jesus raises Lazarus from the dead, signifying that Jesus is the resurrection and the life. In the last chapter, John records the miraculous catch of 153 large fish to show that Jesus is humanity’s provider.
    The bible records 37 miracles that Jesus performed, but the bible days, “There are also many other things that Jesus did; if every one of them were written down, I suppose the world itself could not contain the books that would be written” (John 21:25).
    In our lesson this evening John retells the story of the wedding at Cana where Jesus turned water into wine. Here John wants us to look beyond the miracle itself and begin to believe in Jesus and the Father who sent Him.
    EPOSITION: John 2:1-11
    I. The Setting of the Miracle (John 2:1-2)
    A. Cana of Galilee (John 2:1a)
    B. A Key Member at the Wedding (John 2:1b
    C. Other Invited Guests at the wedding (John 2:2)
    II. The Challenge at the Wedding (John 2:3-4)

    A. They Ran Out of Wine (John 2:3a)
    B. Jesus’ Mother Intervene (John 2:3b)
    C. Jesus Give a Strange Response (John 2:4)

    III. The Focus of the Miracle (John 2:5-11)
    A. Mary Demonstrated Faith In Jesus (John 2:5)
    B. The Resources for the Miracle (John 2:6)
    C. Jesus Commanded the Miracle (John 2:7)
    D. The Fruits of the Miracle (John 2:8-11)
    Points to Ponder:
    1. Jesus attending the wedding in Cana of Galilee as a demonstration to illustrate His respect for the institution of marriage (John 2:1-2; Genesis 2:21-25; Ephesians 5:21-25)
    2. Human efforts can never anticipate short coming of our plans. In other words, God is never limited by our plans’ failures (John 2:3-4; Genesis 16; 17)
    3. Faith in Jesus always proceeds a Miracle (John 2:5; Hebrews 11)
    4. Jesus’ miracle at Cana represents His capacity to exceed humanity’s limitations (John 2:6-9; Judges 7)
    5. The focus of miracles is to display God’s Glory and sovereignty over nature (John 2:10; Exodus 14).
    6. Miracles and signs are performed to convince and convict Jesus’ disciples to believe in Him (John 2:11; Matthew 17).
    7. Miracles and signs were performed to convince and convict sinners of God’s Glory and sovereignty (Daniel 3:21-29)

    Sacrificial, Joyful Giving: II Corinthians 8:1-14
    Introduction: Most of the times we take up love offerings when guest musicians or speakers come to our church. Occasionally, we will try to meet special needs without having a representative there, and our missionary giving is almost in a budget format.
    In his first letter to the Corinthians, Paul gave instructions about collecting a gift for the poor believers in Jerusalem. They were to set aside certain amounts weekly and let the total accumulate until he came and pick it up. It was to be completed before he arrived. He would take or send it in whatever way made them comfortable. He wanted no question to arise over the integrity of its handling.
    The most detailed passage on giving in the New Testament is found in Second Corinthians chapters 8 and 9. The primary reason that Paul addressed this topic here was that false teachers in Corinth were questioning his motives for ministry. Evidently they were suggesting that Paul was pocketing contributions earmarked for the poor believers in Jerusalem. Consequently the Corinthians had not donated.
    Our lesson this evening is and has been one of the most controversy problems in the church. Hopefully, we can examine the scriptures and gleam from it the intent and purpose for giving.
    DEPOSITION: 2 Corinthians 8:1-14
    I. Believers Must Give Freely (2 Corinthians 8:1-2)
    A. A Good Example (2 Corinthians 8:1-2)
    B. A Desire to Fulfill the Obligation of Fellowship (2 Corinthians 8:3-4)
    C. A Personal Commitment (2 Corinthians 8:5-6)
    D. A Reasonable Challenge (2 Corinthians 8:7)

    II. Believers Giving Willingly (2 Corinthians 8:8-)

    A. Follow the Example of Jesus (2 Corinthians 8:8-10)
    B. Perform by Doing (2 Corinthians 8:11
    C. Exercise a Willing Mind (2 Corinthians 8:12)

    III. Find a Balance Christian Life Through Giving
    (2 Corinthians 8:13-14)
    A. Be Make Sure Everyone is Accountable (2 Corinthians 8:13-14)
    B. The Goal of Equality (2 Corinthians 8:14)
    C. Share Your Blessings of Over Flow (2 Corinthians 8:14)
    Points to Ponder:
    1. Grace Giving is Sacrificial giving (2 Corinthians 8:1-2).
    2. Grateful Christians joyfully seek opportunities to give (2 Corinthians 3-4)
    3. Biblical Giving begins by giving ourselves to God and others as Jesus did (2 Corinthians 8:5-6; Galatians 1:4; 2:20).
    4. The foundation motive for our giving should always be love (2 Corinthians 8:8:7-9).
    5. If you promise to give, fulfill your promise (2 Corinthians 8:10-12).
    6. Biblical giving seeks to meet the needs, not just the wants, of others (2 Corinthians 8:13-14)
