But really, we’re all in a sphere of...

Maybe some of you are coupon clippers; you’re bargain shoppers. You like a good deal! But then you hear those dreaded words, “Some exclusions apply.” It’s not going to be as good of a deal as you once thought. I came across a department store coupon the other day that was $10 off for every $25 you spend; sounds like a pretty good deal, but “Some exclusions apply.” And...

Rewire

You will remember that Paul has been dealing with the problem of divisions at Corinth and in the second half of chapter 12 he is particularly concerned about the kind of divisions that have developed over spiritual gifts. Some at Corinth, tongue-speakers and others, consider themselves, because of the gifts they had, to be super-spiritual and they were looking down on others. Which led to some at Corinth saying, “Because...

God Reigns

In a fascinating book entitled, Affluenza: How to be Successful and Stay Sane, Oliver James analyzes the dysfunctions of contemporary western culture that have been generated by the relentless acquisitiveness and greed that is so characteristic of our age. “Consumption,” he says, “holds out the false promise that an internal lack can be fixed by an external means. We medicate our misery through buying things.” And then he illustrates...

1 John

Amen. If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to 1 John chapter 2 as we continue to work our way through this letter of the Apostle John to the church. As we've worked through this letter over the last several months, we have said that over and over John's concern is to show us what the marks of a true Christian are. What's...

The Incomparable Christ: Exposition of Colossians

Colossians 1:13-20 The Incomparable Christ #4

If you will kindly take your Bibles and turn with me to Colossians chapter 1, we will continue our study of this great book.

That teaching did not deny the supremacy of Christ, but by...
