In Jesus Is Life • John 1:4 Mount Paran was blessed to have Elder John Burkett from Green Pastures Primitive Baptist Church visiting with us this Sunday. Elder John preached how Jesus is the source of natural life, the source and cause of the resurrection, and the cause of regeneration. In each case of giving life, God acts alone by His sovereign will and power.

Stand Fast in Liberty • Galatians 5 – Brother Jonah Lowrance The Apostle Paul now makes practical application of what he has been teaching the churches in Galatia. He shows them and us that faith manifests itself in two way – love and hope. We are not be legalistic nor antinomian in our service to the Lord. We are to live in liberty by living for the benefit of others.
Grace Is Enough • Titus 3:1-7 – Elder Bryce Lowrance Elder Bryce continues with the same theme of “faith working by love” as he teaches about Paul’s main point of his letter to Titus. The doctrine of grace is sufficient teaching and motivation for good works. Any other reason for good works in without true faith and is unprofitable for the child of God.

February 20, 2022 • Elder Bryce Lowrance – Psalm 46

Psalm 46 – Elder Bryce Lowrance Our world is filled with dangers and uncertainties, and Satan seeks to rob our minds of hope and joy. Psalm 46 reminds us that God is greater than all the fears and powers that seem to bear down us in our lives. in this song of God’s power, David calls on us to run the our true Refuge, Jesus Christ. And when we are there, we are to be still and know that He is God and will keep us from all harm.

Galatians 4:21-31 • Paul’s Allegory – Brother Jonah Lowrance 
The true story of Abraham, Sarah, and Hagar is an allegory that teaches how the the church and the people of God should view the law. Any use of the law to seek justification is like Sarah giving Hagar to Abraham. This is not God’s chosen way. The law is to teach us about Jesus Christ – the only source of true and free justification and salvation.
Romans 8:1-3 • 2 Laws – Elder Bryce Lowrance Following up on the conclusions drawn by Brother Jonah, Elder Bryce shows that there are really only two laws regarding our salvation. One is the law of sin and death. The other is the law of the Spirit of life. If any aspect of a system of salvation gives even the smallest possibilities of eternal damnation it is a “law of sin and death.” True grace teaches that the finished work of Christ is sufficient for all the elect of God, and it leaves nothing in the hands of men. In Christ, we have no condemnation!

Psalm 5 • Pray without Ceasing – February 6, 2022 Elder Bryce Lowrance 
In this Psalm, David shows us the striking differences in the way God views His elect and the wicked. God’s chosen ones have access by His abundant mercy to approach the throne of grace for help in time of need. The wicked continually seek to fulfill their own desires, and God will ultimately bring them to destruction. The righteous saints of God are redeemed freely by the blood Jesus Christ and therefore have direct access to the Father and can expect help when they ask in faith.

Brother Jonah Lowrance • “The Importance of Belief in the Trinity” The doctrine of the Triune nature of the Godhead is clearly taught in scripture. If we do not believe in this doctrine, we are in danger of embracing many false teachings and heresies.
Elder Bryce Lowrance • Psalm 13 “The Howling Psalm”
David cries out “How Long?” four times in anxious despair. Yet after he prays, he moves from feeling that God has left him to realizing that God has blessed him bountifully. When we are discouraged and think that God is not there, we need to turn to Him in penitent prayer and ask for His favor in our lives. When He grants peace, we should sing praise!

Brother Jonah Lowrance • Galatians 4:16-20 “Be Zealously Affect in a Good Thing” We should not allow the lies and distractions of the world draw us away from the fellowship of the saints and the true doctrine taught in church. Rather, we should be zealous for the truth when we hear it, and be more active in church.
Elder Bryce Lowrance • Psalm 4 “An Evening Prayer”
The key to finding peace and rest in this fallen world is understanding that God is our righteousness. He loves us, He chose us, He counts Christ’s righteousness as ours, and because of these facts, He is there for us when we call.

Psalm 3 • The Peace of Sovereign Grace – January 9, 2022
Elder Bryce Lowrance
Psalm 3 was written by David when he had to flee from Jerusalem because his son, Absalom, sought to kill him. When David considers the faithful and merciful character of God, he finds peace enough to rest even though he is in the middle of a flight for his life.

November 12, 2021 • Elder Bryce Lowrance Psalm 47 “Clapping, Shouting, and Singing” – In this Psalm celebrating the victories of God, we find that we should not hold back our praise of God. If we are truly excited about God’s grace we may even find ourselves clapping with “happy sounds.” In particular, this Psalm celebrates the ascension of Christ back to His throne. At that moment, there was shouting in heaven. David then tells us that we should respond with continual singing.
