Jan–Dec 2019

How To Not Mess Up Communion

1 Corinthians 11:17-34 • July 14, 2019 • Bert Alcorn

The church body in Corinth has misunderstood the purpose, value, and blessing of the Lord’s Supper and in abusing it are creating a Gospel issue as it relates to the understanding of Jesus’ sacrifice. 1 Corinthians 11:17-34; Pasalm 139:23-24

Head Coverings, Etc.

1 Corinthians 11:2-16 • July 7, 2019 • Bert Alcorn

Don’t do things that will make your brother or sister stumble, rather in everything we do, live and worship in a way that builds them up and glorifies God. – 1 Corinthians 11:2-16; Genesis 1:26-27, 2:7-8, 15, 19-25; John 3:30; 1 Corinthians 10:23

Doing All To The Glory of God

1 Corinthians 10:23-11:1 • June 30, 2019 • Kyle Ripley

In humility, we make day to day, moment to moment decisions to honor God as we go through life. Paul offers himself as a picture of one seeking to live a faithful life.

Dining With Demons

1 Corinthians 10:14–22 • June 23, 2019 • Kevin Marsden

Worship of God is exclusive - one cannot worship God and "dine with demons". Paul's stern warning against idol worship shows us the importance of an undivided heart, in an undivided community in undivided worship.

Living in the Tension of the Fear of God and the Love of God

1 Corinthians 10:1-14 • June 16, 2019 • Bert Alcorn

Paul shows how the community of Israel, established by God and given gifts by God, still sinned and was judged. Because of that, it gives the Christians in Corinth an example, and us as well, of what not to do. Dependence on God and his faithfulness, not on us, our abilities or experiences, will help us endure temptation, defeat sin, and live the life Jesus has set out for us.   This is the audio podcast from Bert's sermon at Anthem Camarillo.

Flee Idolatry

1 Corinthians 10:1-14 • June 16, 2019 • Steve Scherer

Paul shows how the community of Israel, established by God and given gifts by God, still sinned and was judged. Because of that, it gives the Christians in Corinth an example, and us as well, of what not to do. Dependence on God and his faithfulness, not on us, our abilities or experiences, will help us endure temptation, defeat sin, and live the life Jesus has set out for us.

All Things to All People

1 Corinthians 9:18-27 • June 9, 2019 • Zach Bloom

Paul gives us an example of living a life of intentionality for the sake of the Gospel.

Laying Down My Rights

1 Corinthians 9:1-18 • June 2, 2019 • Josh Snowden

Paul uses himself as an example, to us, of one who has laid down his rights to pursue unity in the body of Christ. *This is part of our apprentice teacher month at Anthem Ventura. Today's teacher is Josh Snowden.*

What Am I Free To Give Up?

1 Corinthians 8:1-13 • May 26, 2019 • Bert Alcorn

Because of the gospel, we gladly give up our rights out of love for Jesus and our brothers and sisters. *This is the audio from the Anthem Campout, so there are some drops in volume from time to time.

On Singleness and Kingdom Effectiveness

1 Corinthians 7:25-40 • April 14, 2019 • Bert Alcorn

Undivided devotion to the Lord should guide decisions about whether to remain single or to marry, but other factors, which point to the value of remaining unmarried, should all be considered.

The Assigned Life

1 Corinthians 7:17-24 • April 7, 2019 • Bert Alcorn

What defines you as a believer is not your family, your job, etc. but your identity in Christ.

Marriage & Divorce

1 Corinthians 7:1-16 • March 31, 2019 • Steve Scherer

All relationships are complicated, we need Jesus at the center of all of them to find the joy, contentment and hope that the Gospel brings. Whatever your situation, work hard to put Jesus at the center and “Glorify God with your body.”

Flee Sexual Immorality

1 Corinthians 6:12-20 • March 24, 2019 • Steve Scherer

You were bought at a price, so glorify God in your body.

And Such Were Some of You

1 Corinthians 6:9-11 • March 17, 2019 • Bert Alcorn

The Gospel is powerful to work in any broken person and in all forms of brokenness. - 1 Corinthians 6:9-11, 8; Romans 8:11 *FYI: The audio quality goes pretty downhill around the halfway mark. #churchplantlife

Why Not Be Wronged?

1 Corinthians 6:1-8 • March 10, 2019 • Bert Alcorn

As followers of Jesus, we don’t live in a bubble, but we do have a different ecosystem… our lives are shaped by a new kingdom and the world does not know how to properly engage that, so there are things that we need to deal with “in house”. - 1 Corinthians 6:1-8; John 13:34-35; Ephesians 5:8; 2 Corinthians 5:17; Matthew 5:38-48; Romans 12:18; 1 Peter 2:19-25; John 17:20-21
