Pure Milk (1 Peter 2:1-3)

Of the twenty-two different variations of milk that exist today, we're going to discuss one variation that is not on the list…and this milk is essential to life.  This milk has no harmful side-effects. This milk is a daily dietary requirement. We’re talking about the pure milk of the Word of God.

How to live as a Christian in a World of Hostile Leftist Hatred (1 Peter 1:22-25)

As we celebrate America’s 245th birthday while studying 1 Peter, I want to use this morning’s passage to draw attention to a national scandal, a cancer in American culture that has been metastasizing for years.  If we don’t get it reversed, there may not be a 246th birthday.  The problem is hatred. Why is the atheistic angry left so hate-filled?  And how are we to live and succeed as Bible-believing Christians in a harsh, hostile "Twitter-verse" of leftist hatred?

More Precious Than Gold (1 Peter 1:17-21)

Recently, a man digging through the contents of a dumpster found two paintings worth hundreds of thousands of dollars.  In a place of filth, among worthless debris destined for destruction, he rescued a treasure of immense value.  I mention it because this is a great illustration from the world of current events of the message that Peter has for us this morning.  Why should we live holy lives?  Because of the fairness of God's verdicts and the value He places on us.

Be Ye…Holy? Are You Serious? (1 Peter 1:13-16)

We freak out a little when we hear that we’re supposed to be “holy.”  We think it’s unrealistic, but it’s not.  As Peter lays out our instructions, he will explain how we can by showing us that there are behaviors we should not be doing and behaviors we should be doing now that we're in Christ.  “Do not be conformed…” (v. 14) but instead “be holy in all your behavior.” (v. 15)

Why Are Atheists So Stupid? (Psalm 2)

God asks, "Why do the heathen rage?"  It's a good question for our day too, when so many outright atheists are not just apathetic to Christian doctrine and morals but angrily resistant to them.  Why are those in leadership in our country today working overtime to defend those who burn down their own cities, deny due process in courts of law, kill the economy, and implement other illogical, science-denying, socially destructive policies with such passion and fervor?  We have the answer.

When All Hope Is Lost (John 19:31-20:10)

The ministry of Jesus has fallen apart.  The powerful religious establishment has illegally arrested Him under the cover of darkness, pushed Him through a mock trial with a predetermined outcome, tortured Him, and nailed Him to a cross.  Thanks to the "fake news" propaganda of the religious and political elite, the people who once heralded Jesus into Jerusalem, now demand His crucifixion.  On top of all that, His own disciples have forsaken him and bitterly mourn their own failure.  All hope is lost...or is it?

Behold the Man! (John 19:1-16)

When Jesus goes to the cross as the substitutionary atonement for our sins, He not only pays for them with His shed blood, brutally extracted from His innocent flesh, but on top of that, He endures mocking and humiliation on a grand scale. It’s highly unlikely that any of us will be killed for standing up for Christ, but I guarantee you that at some point, you or I will be made fun of for our faith.  In this morning’s passage, we will see how our Lord responds to being made a fool of while also suffering the effects of severe torture.

What Is Truth? (John 18:28-40)

How do we as believers share the gospel truth in a time of post-modern thought which rejects the very notion of truth, claims that logic and reason are racist tools of Western civilization, and that words have no meaning?  The same way Jesus does before Pontius Pilate and Pontius Pilate does before the hypocritical religious leaders who want Jesus executed.

Peter’s Denial of Jesus (John 18:15-27)

As Jesus said he would, Peter denies his association with Christ three times in this familiar passage from John 18. The Bible simply tells us that it happened; it doesn't tell us the lesson we are to draw from it.  Was Peter weak, feckless, and unworthy of the high position to which Jesus appointed him?  Or was Peter a good man who made a terrible mistake in the heat of the moment? Let's walk through the passage and draw some conclusions.

Volunteer Not Victim (John 18:1-18)

The "Last Adam" in the Garden of Gethsemane will reverse the curse brought about by the first Adam in the Garden of Eden. Even though Jesus is the victim of a sinister plot which begins in this garden, He is also an all-knowing, all-powerful voluntary participant in it. Remember that He said, “I have the power to lay My life down and the power to take it up again.” He is enduring this week of injustice, torture, and death for you and for me. And just because these events were known before the foundation of the world, does not make the men who committed them any less culpable.  They had the power to do right, but chose not to use it, and God in His foreknowledge knew they would not and He used their stubbornness to fulfill His purposes.

I Have Overcome the World (John 16:23-33)

Jesus prepares His disciples for His departure as we enter the final week of Jesus' life prior to the crucifixion.  They are upset and confused (their hearts are troubled) because they are losing Him.  Jesus responds by pointing out all they will gain as a result of His departure including a place in heaven prepared for them, the presence of the Holy Spirit for their Christian walk, and another benefit mentioned in today's passage.

What Did the Angels Sing at Christmas? (Luke 2:8-14)

Singing angels on Christmas morning is one of those assumptions that we have baked into the Christmas story over the years that isn’t actually included in the sacred text!  Whether they sang, spoke or shouted their glorious announcement, it was a message from heaven and it needs to be understood.  So let's brush the tradition out of our eyes and let the Bible speak for itself.  We need to hear this as much as the shepherds did!

“And That’s What Christmas Is All About” (Luke 2:21-35

As with most people, I love Christmas time. I love the decorations, presents, trees, lights, and the memories of past Christmases.  I love the movies like “It’s a Wonderful Life” with Jimmy Stewart. But most of all, I love that the whole world -- for at least one day a year -- is reminded of the birth of Jesus Christ.  Even with all the noise and distractions of the commercial secularism, the birth of Jesus still shines through.  However, many of the secular songs and movies end with either the stated or implied axiom, “And that’s what Christmas is all about.”  99% of the time, they are totally incorrect.  Today, we're going to meet a guy who got it 100% right!

Hang On! Help is on the Way! (John 16:1-15)

In this chapter of Jesus' farewell speech to His disciples, He has some serious warnings for them. Namely, things are going to get pretty bad.  The silver lining though, is that they will not endure it alone because Help is on the way.  For us as American Christians, it looks like we are in for a rough time too as atheistic, left-wing agitators and their accomplices in the media will unleash a new wave of persecution against Christians very soon.  Where to turn?  Tune in and find out.

In a World That Hates You, Love One Another (John 15:12-27)

Sports commentator Jason Whitlock described the 2020 election as a parable of love versus hate. Trump supporters have a blind unconditional love of their leader which fuels their energy and action. Meanwhile, a blind unconditional hatred of President Trump fuels the energy and action of Biden supporters. Biden’s ideas, policies and resume are irrelevant. He is a tool to kill the Trump presidency so they will vote for him. If you think the persecution suffered by Trump and his supporters is bad, wait until you see the persecution against Jesus and His supporters. Jesus' message to His followers prior to the apex of this persecution is to expect the world to hate them, and He tells them one important thing they must do in the midst of all this hatred.

I Am The Vine (John 15:1-12)

Good morning fellow branches and twigs. This morning’s passage is a familiar and convicting one.  It’s about bearing fruit, and if you’re like me, you probably look at your list of Christian accomplishments and think “I don’t bear much fruit at all.”  Chances are that you bear more than you know, but if you want to bear more fruit, listen up. This morning, we will discover why fruit production is low, and how to fix it.
