Message #323 Mother's Day 2018, "All These Things In Her Heart" Sunday, May 13th 2018 Throughout the Scriptures, God expresses His grace to and through mothers in ways that glorify Him, show us His character, and instruct us in His ways. This teaching will focus on two such mothers: Rahab and Mary. Rahab - introduced to her in Joshua 2:1-21. She fits perfectly the description of a Gentile given in Ephesians 2:12. Though she did not know much, when the word of God came to her she believed God and acted on His word (Isaiah 66:2; Romans 10:17; Hebrews 11:30-31; James 2:20-26). She had greater faith in God's word than the twelve spies of Numbers 13, and a model of John 20:29. Mary - was of the line of David (Luke 3). Her heart was full of the Scriptures (Luke 1:46-55). A virgin (Luke 1:26-38), who acknowledged God as her Savior (Luke 1:47).

Message #319 "Growing Strong Through Suffering" - 1 Peter 5:6-14 Sunday, April 15 2018 Jesus told Simon Peter (in Luke 22:31-32) that though he was about to be "sifted like wheat," Jesus had prayed for him, "that your faith may not fail." Jesus added, "And when you have turned again, strengthen your brothers." Jesus knew that in God's strength, we not only can endure, but we can grow strong and come through our suffering better equipped to strengthen our brothers. Some thirty years later, Simon- then known as Peter- wrote a letter to scattered believers suffering more and more persecution. He did not have to persuade them that persecution might come, because they already were experiencing it. We sometimes need to be reminded that we can expect suffering during our lifetime. (Acts 14:22.) Wanting the believers to be equipped to live victoriously despite their suffering, Peter gave them a series of reminders on how they (and we) can grow stronger in the midst of suffering. In short, Peter was doing just what Jesus had predicted about Peter more than three decades earlier: strengthening his brothers. In this message, we looked at the ways we can grow strong during times of suffering and trials, as seen in Peter's letter to the scattered Christians, in 1 Peter 5:6-14.
