The Benefit of Regular Church Attendance

The Benefit of Regular Church Attendance (March 15, 2020)
Elder Bryce Lowrance considers the Apostle Paul’s instruction in Hebrews chapter 9:25 to not forsake “the assembling of ourselves together.” While a seemingly simple command in scripture, do we appreciate the grace and finished work as explained by the Apostle Paul earlier in the chapter leading up to that command? Are we thankful for and understand the opportunity we have been given? Brother Bryce considers how we should look at the commands to action we’ve been given in this portion of the book of Hebrews and what it means to exhort one another, especially “as ye see the day approaching.”

True Prosperity (March 8, 2020)

True Prosperity (March 8, 2020) – Elder Bryce Lowrance concludes a series of messages on the book of 1st Timothy. He asks how do we define prosperity? Are we concerning ourselves today with being successful or being faithful? Brother Bryce considers what is “godliness with contentment” mentioned in verse six and the lessons Timothy is reminded of by the Apostle Paul throughout the rest of the chapter.

Wholesome words (March 1, 2020)

Wholesome words (March 1, 2020) – Elder Bryce Lowrance considers the “wholesome words” spoken of in the book of 1st Timothy chapter six. He looks to the Apostle Paul’s instruction to establish the importance of making sure someone speaks wholesome words and doctrine. What happens when wholesome words aren’t being spoken? Do we know and appreciate the lengths to which our Lord has gone to provide us His wholesome words?

Servitude (February 23, 2020)

Servitude (February 23, 2020) – Elder Bryce Lowrance considers the subject of servitude within the context of the first two verses of 1st Timothy chapter six, discussing the verses’ application today. He establishes that the Bible condemns slavery and that the Apostle Paul was laying the groundwork to deal with even the bond servant relationship under consideration in the 1st Timothy chapter six. He then looks to the book of Philemon to see what we can learn from Onesimus and how the Apostle Paul handled his message to Philemon, as well as to what end.

Brother Bryce asks and answers a number of questions about this account. Why is Jesus traveling where he is traveling? What’s going on? What are the reactions of these men to their healing? How do these things apply to us?
