This Lord's Day we will continue our series on THE BIBLE'S STORY, a survey of the major events that shape our understanding of the Scriptures and our place in the the world in which we live! All of history, both within the pages of Scriptures (and without) fits into this unfolding story of Redemption and are on the way to the final conclusion of God's purpose and plan.
This morning we continue our jump ahead jump in our timeline in THE BIBLE's STORY to the incarnation of the Lord Jesus! We will continue for the next month or so looking at the Christ Jesus and His work.
The role of Christ is CENTRAL to the Bible's Story. In today's passage we look at Christ's childhood Anna especially how Jesus fulfills all the requirements of the law. Through Him salvation and full redemption from our sins and the Fall comes. This is THE STORY THAT MATTERS MOST. Be sure you're paying attention!
"Codependence" is a term the therapeutic community uses to describe the universal condition of relational brokenness. It effects believers and unbelievers alike in its patterns. And Christians are commanded to overcome this subtle form of idolatry. The good news is that God in Christ has made provision for us to overcome this sinful condition and learn to develop healthy, loving relationships. Here we discuss the nature and characteristics of codependence and offer you five points as tools for recovery from this spiritual disease.
Today we're taking a closer look at the twentieth chapter of the Book of Proverbs.

A little reminiscing is a good thing when we learn from our past mistakes. And in this case, a childhood memory reminds us of the difference between hearing and "getting it" with hearing not ignoring reproof.
How is God's faithfulness known in old age? Psalm 71:14–24 looks forward to the opening portion of morning public worship on the coming Lord's Day. In these eleven verses of Holy Scripture, the Holy Spirit teaches us that our God brings us through great and severe troubles so that we will rejoice over the certainty of resurrection unto corporate worship for the everlasting praise of God.
A child speaks, understands, and thinks as a child. Life is simple when you are a child. With little knowledge and little experience our thoughts do not have so many places to go. But when we grow up we find there is much more to life than playing games and pretending to be something we are not. When it comes to our spiritual life and development we are only children now. At our very best now we only see through a glass darkly. Now we only know in part, but one day, much sooner than we think, we will see Him face to face, and our understanding and our thoughts will no longer be like children, but as the fully-grown sons of God.
There are consequences for ignoring or rejecting God's word and doing things as you see fit. Being a companion of fools is one major example. If you choose not to be wise and walk with wise men, you will suffer destruction by being a companion of fools, not only in this life but at Judgment.
King David's son Absalom was also his enemy. So should love have set aside justice? Should justice have prevailed at love's expense? David strategized to defeat his enemies while preserving his son's life—yet the message of victory was accompanied by the announcement of Absalom's death, and the king was consumed with guilt-laden grief. Examining God's providential role in tragedy as well victory, Alistair Begg points us to the one place where perfect love and perfect justice meet: at the cross of Christ.
