The Peace of God • Colossians 3:15 – Elder Bryce H. Lowrance In order for the peace of God to rule in our hearts, we must first know how the peace of God got into our hearts. The doctrine of grace tells us the the finished work of Jesus Christ from election to glorification is the source and sustainer of peace between the elect and God. Peace is a fruit of the Spirit and so is therefore given to us in the new birth. In order for that peace to be the ruling factor in our lives, we must believe the gospel in sincerity. When we do, we grow closer together in the church and, even though the world may crumble around us, we can have peace and live and worship in thankfulness.

Put on Charity • Colossians 3:12-14 – Elder Bryce H. Lowrance Colossians, Chapter 3 teaches that the logical response to God’s grace in our lives is to transform every aspect of our lives to be more like Jesus Christ in our daily walk. After the Apostle Paul instructs about what behaviors we should should cease, he gives us Godly behaviors that we should pursue every day. Ultimately, Paul shows us that we are to work toward pure charity in our behavior. Charity is love in action purely for the benefit of someone else with no regard to what we receive in return.

Nebuchadnezzar’s Dream • Brother Jonah Lowrance Brother Jonah preaches from the second half of Daniel, Chapter 2 where Daniel has prayed to God for help in interpreting the dream of the king. Daniel gives glory to God and then explains that there will be four major kingdoms in the earth that will ultimately be replaced by an everlasting kingdom ruled by the Rock not made with hands. What Is Your Passion? • Colossians 3:1-13 – Elder Bryce Lowrance Since we have been raised to newness of life by the power of Christ’s resurrection from the dead, we are now dead to the power of sin. Further, we have been called and given power to live a different lifestyle than before. Our old man loves itself and wants to please itself. We are called to put off the old man and put on the new man that seeks to love and help others.

Colossians 9 “Boasting in ” Colossians 2:6-23 • Elder Bryce Lowrance Since we are saved by the finished work of Jesus Christ plus nothing, we are able to walk in obedience to God out of pure thankfulness. In this portion of the letter, the Apostle Paul expounds upon the many ways that we are IN Christ, WITH Christ, and TOGETHER WITH Christ. All of these statements build a beautiful doxology of praise for our successful Redeemer!

Living and Praying in Babylon • Brother Jonah Lowrance & Elder Bryce Lowrance Brother Jonah ably presents the way we ought to live in a world that is against us by showing what Daniel and his friends did when facing adversity in Daniel, Chapter 2. Daniel prayed and immersed himself in church fellowship while waiting on the Lord to answer and help. Elder Bryce continues with the same theme in 1st Timothy, Chapter 2 and reminds us that it our duty to pray for our leaders and all those in authority over us. This is not so that they we get our way politically, but that we may continue to worship freely.

Colossians 8 “How Do We Receive Christ?” Colossians 2:6 • Elder Bryce Lowrance How do we receive Christ? How a person answers that question greatly affects how they walk in Christ. If salvation be by man’s will or works, then our continued works are the grounds for our justification before a Holy God. However, if salvation is by grace plus nothing, then we are secure in the finished work of Christ. God gets all the glory for salvation, and we can walk in humble obedience out of just pure thankfulness.

Daniel, Chapter 1 • Brother Jonah Lowrance Brother Jonah begins in Proverbs, Chapter 3 with a text that Daniel and King Hezekiah would have both known. There, Solomon teaches that we are to acknowledge God in everything we do. Jonah then shows how Hezekiah was blessed throughout his life but eventually forsook this counsel and Judah was taken into captivity because of his sin. In contrast, Daniel continues to follow the Lord and seek His ways throughout his entire captivity in Babylon.
Elder Bryce Lowrance goes back to 1st Kings, Chapter 20 showing that King Hezekiah was very selfish when he responded to Isaiah. He was glad that Israel would not suffer while he was alive. We are to take care that we are not selfish in our discipleship. We need to continue like Daniel and live for God by living for others.

Colossians 7 “When Church Works” Colossians 2:1-5 • Elder Bryce Lowrance When the pastor that the Lord has chosen to feed His flock faithfully delivers the whole counsel of God, and when the congregation responds in thankful obedience, the glory of the perfect and finished work of Christ is revealed. God is greatly praised. And the church members grow closer together in the riches of the full assurance of salvation.

“An Introduction to the Book of Daniel” • Brother Jonah Lowrance
Brother Jonah sets the historical background of the life of Daniel and the nation of Israel when Nebuchadnezzar takes the sons of the kings captive. He shows that theme throughout the twelve chapters is the coming kingdom of Jesus Christ.
Colossians 6. “The Preeminence of Christ’s Church” Colossians 1:24-29 • Elder Bryce Lowrance Elder Bryce continues the series of messages on Paul’s letter to the Colossians church. This message shows that the church of the Lord Jesus Christ is the most important organization on earth because it is the method whereby God reveals everything we need to know about Him, ourselves, and salvation.

April 17, 2022 • Eld. Bryce Lowrance – The Seven Sayings on the Cross

The Seven Sayings of Christ on the Cross
Jesus taught us several things with the last few things He spoke as He died for our sins on the cross. 1.At our worst, God forgives. 2. When we die, we get to be immediately with Jesus in Heaven. 3. We should care for one another, especially our parents and the elderly. J4. esus died alone so that we would never have to be alone. 5. Jesus died as a man so that we can have the hope of being raised in our flesh like Him. 6. Jesus declared that the work He came to do was finished. 7. Satisfied that He had saved God’s children to the uttermost, Jesus commended His victorious spirit to the Father. We should therefore rest in the finished work of Jesus Christ.
