Rest

When Jesus heard of it, he departed thence by ship into a desert place apart: and when the people had heard thereof, they followed him on foot out of the cities. Matthew 14:13 And the apostles gathered themselves together unto Jesus, and told him all things, both what they had done, and what they had … Continue reading Rest

Gifts in the Church

Is not this the carpenter's son? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas? And his sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then hath this man all these things? And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without … Continue reading Gifts in the Church

Our Response to Grace

And they began to pray him to depart out of their coasts. And when he was come into the ship, he that had been possessed with the devil prayed him that he might be with him. Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great … Continue reading Our Response to Grace

Triumphal Feast • Ephesians 5:21-33 “Submission” pt. 2

Today's edition of Triumphal Feast is the conclusion of the message “Submission” from Ephesians 5:21-33. This message focuses on the husband's role as Christ in the home and how the home should reflect the relationship between Christ and His bride, the church. We apologize for the poor audio quality of this recording. Our primary microphone failed in the middle of the sermon.

Triumphal Feast • Ephesians 5:21-33 “Submission” pt. 1

Ephesians Series • 19 “Submission” 5:21-33 Continuing in his series from the letter to the Ephesians, Elder Bryce teaches about God’s design for the home and how it honors God and should reflect the relationship between Christ and His Bride, the church. In part one of this message, Elder Bryce defines what Paul means by submission in the home, and the husband’s responsibility to be Christ in the home.

Triumphal Feast • Ephesians 5:15-21 “Redeeming the Time” pt. 2

Today's edition of Triumphal Feast concludes the message "Redeeming the Time." We live in a society with a consumer mentality and unfortunately that mentality has infiltrated the thinking of God's people regarding church. Many look for and attend a church that fits their personal taste or that gives them the experience they desire. This attitude is foreign to God's design for HIS church. Church is about glorifying God in Jesus Christ and learning to live like Christ by loving others. Through submitting ourselves to one another in a single local assembly, we will redeem the time and live our lives to the fullest.

Triumphal Feast • Ephesians 5:15-21 “Redeeming the Time” pt. 1

Time is fleeting. Once it has passed, we cannot physically go back and reclaim it. However, the Apostle Paul teaches us that we can redeem that time by living differently. The closer we are to Christ in our daily walk, the closer we are to eternity! When we seek the good of others rather than pleasing ourselves, we walk on "God's time" and make the most of our lives.

Triumphal Feast • Ephesians 5:1-17 “Walk Like Children” pt. 2

Today’s edition of Triumphal Feast is the conclusion of the message titled “Walk Like Children.” Last week we learned that God saved us to Himself for His glory. In doing so, He regenerates us so that we are able to glorify Him in our walk as discipleships in His church here in time. Last week’s edition ended in the middle of Ephesians 5:4 with the subject of “jesting.”  We will begin today’s message at that point where we see that Christ never acted for His own benefit but always for the benefit of God’s elect.

Triumphal Feast • Ephesians 5:1-17 “Walk Like Children” pt. 1

Ephesians Series • 17 “Walk Like Children” Ephesians 5:1-17 Paul’s letter to the Church at Ephesus is the perfect example of what a church ought to believe and how it should behave together as a unified church. The first three chapters stand as an Articles of Faith clearly showing the finished work of Jesus Christ and that salvation is by grace plus nothing. Chapters four through six are a sort of Church Covenant. Here, Paul teaches how to apply the doctrine of grace taught in the first half of the letter to our daily living with one another in the church. Today’s message begins in chapter five where Paul teaches us to walk in love as children. When we understand and truly believe the doctrine of grace, we are then able to live our lives in the liberty of love knowing that our sonship is secure and preserved by the power of God.
