Faithful and Wise Servant

July 15, 2018 • Andy Falleur

- Jesus tells the disciples three parables to illustrate how they are to live in light of his immanent return. He’s told them that it may take a while. But, he’s also told them that it could be in a moment, and happen so fast there wouldn’t be time to prepare. You would need to live prepared. These three parables illustrate what that looks like in three basic stages of the Christian life: leadership, youth and maturity. Keywords: Leadership, Wisdom, Faithfulness, Second Coming

Marriage - Ephesians 5:22-24

Wives • January 20, 2019 • Andy Falleur

In our third study on the topic of marriage, we turn the page from looking at marriage as a whole, to the question of how to stay married. And, we start, where the New Testament starts, which is with wives. It’s important to get the Biblical understanding of submission, as it is not solely in the realm of marriage.

Marriage - 1 Corinthians 7

"Free" • January 13, 2019 • Andy Falleur

- In our second study in this series on Marriage, we turn the page to the New Testament and look at Paul’s “opinion” on marriage in 1 Corinthians 7. He makes some statements that were provocative both then and today, and they deserve a closer look. It’s interesting to see what he says is “good.” Jesus truly did change everything.

Marriage - Genesis 3:16-20

"Parents" • January 6, 2019 • Andy Falleur

- This is the first in a series on Marriage. Here we look at our “parents” marriage, the very first one, and the conditions that marriage exists in. From there, we can ask some questions about our immediate parents’ marriage. Our parents shape not just our norms about marriage, but human beings, and more importantly our expectations about God.
