The Gospel and Marriage

This week, we ask how the gospel informs marriage.  The gospel reminds us that marriage is not just an ordinary relationship.  Marriage is a profound gift from God and symbolizes the relationship between Christ and the Church.   Ephesians 5:21-33 21 Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.22 Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church,…

The Gospel and Suffering

This week, we ask how the gospel informs suffering.  When we experience suffering, we often get stuck on the question of why.  What the gospel does for us is shift our attention from the why to the who.  The gospel informs who the Lord is for us as we suffer and how his heart soothes our suffering souls.   Matthew 11:28-30 Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon…

The Church Fulfills Its Mission by Sharing the Gospel Wherever and Whenever It Can

Section 8: The Church Week 1: The Nature of the Church and It’s Mission Day 4: The Church Fulfills Its Mission by Sharing the Gospel Wherever and Whenever It Can Rom. 10:14-15 The gospel is the single most important truth people need to hear. Their eternal destinies hang on them putting their faith in Christ. Yet, to paraphrase Paul, how can they trust in Christ if they’ve never heard about him (Rom. 10:14-15)? That realization should motivate us to spread…

The Church Fulfills Its Mission by Worshiping God with Everything It’s Got

Section 8: The Church Week 1: The Nature of the Church and It’s Mission Day 3: The Church Fulfills Its Mission by Worshiping God with Everything It’s Got Rom. 12:1-2 What is worship?
