Context

Introduction

Context • May 9, 2021

Words. We are inundated with them. They convey. Sometimes words are associated with a cause or movement, giving them a slant with an associated agenda that is often defined as “political”. Whether spoken or written, words are important and deserve our careful attention. If we are diligent and wise, we can harness the Biblical context of words to do good and provide a benefit for ourselves and others.

Truth and Understanding

May 8/9, 2021 • May 9, 2021 • Rusty Coram

Recently, terms like “my truth” and “fake news” have become common. If we aren’t careful, we can slowly begin to think truth is something squishy and more a matter of opinion than objective fact. God wants us to have some rock-solid truth that undergirds our lives.

Justice

May 15/16, 2021 • May 16, 2021 • Rusty Coram

When we look at the concept of justice, things can get confusing. God has given us a framework to have a good understanding of what He sees as just and right.

Reform

May 22/23, 2021 • May 23, 2021 • Rusty Coram

It is a lot easier to talk about change than to do it. From God’s perspective, reform should be something we are constantly open to and ready to embrace in order for our lives to line up with Him.

Lament

May 29/30, 2021 • May 30, 2021 • Rusty Coram

Some have the idea that followers of Jesus should be happy all the time. If we are walking in Jesus’ footsteps, there are times when our hearts will be broken over our own sin, the sin of others and the brokenness in the world.

Unity

There is a kind of unity we were created by God to enjoy. It is when we recognize our differences, but don’t let them divide us. It comes when we recognize some key things we have in common and humbly choose to value them the most.
