The Test of Delay
Psalm 27:14 Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD. • October 1, 2017 • Jimmy Reyes
As we wait we will be tempted to take shortcuts or try to change our circumstances. See the story of Abraham and Sarah Genesis 12:1-4, 15:1-6, 16:1-6, 21:1-5 As we wait we need to remember: What God is doing in us is more important than the things we are waiting for.
The Test of Endurance
2 Corinthians 4:7-12 • September 24, 2017 • Bill Dwyer
Endurance in Greek is HUPOMONE Luke 21:19 Stand firm and you will win life. 2 Corinthians 4:7-12 But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that his life may also be revealed in our mortal body. So then, death is at work in us, but life is at work in you.
The Test of Your Call
Ephesians 4:1 • September 17, 2017 • Bill Dwyer
2 Corinthians 5:9-10 So we make it our goal to please him, whether we are at home in the body or away from it. For we must all appear before the judgement seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.
