He Who Began A Good Work in You

Philippians 1:1-6

November 11, 2018 • Pastor Paul Edwards

What is "the good work" which God the Father began in us? When did He begin this work? How will we know when this work is completed? In this message we examine the broad scope of the Trinity's work in saving us: the commencement of the work, the continuation of the work, and the consummation of the work as described by the Apostle Paul in his letter to the Philippians.

Eternal Love Transcending Time

Jeremiah 31:1-3 • December 30, 2018 • Pastor Paul Edwards

The passing of time brings change and uncertainty, but the steadfast love of the Lord never ceases.

Sin's Deceptive and Destructive Progression Displayed in Our Speech

1 John 1:1-2:3 • June 24, 2018 • Pastor Paul Edwards

James tells us that the "tongue is a world of iniquity, set on fire of hell." In 1 John 1:1-2:3, the Apostle John reveals the progression of sin's deceitfulness: from hypocrisy, to duplicity, to apostasy. This progression is on display as our tongues reveal our hearts in what we say.

Between Babylon and Jerusalem: Remember

Psalm 137 • May 27, 2018 • Pastor Paul Edwards

In 600 BC Jerusalem was sacked in a ravage attack by the Babylonians. Psalm 137 is a beautiful song of lament by the Jewish remnant who were carried away from their homeland to captivity in Babylon. The Psalm moves from reflective longing rooted in emotion at the beginning to recollected learning rooted in God's word at the end. Memory is a powerful emotion that must always be kept in check by the promises of God.
