July 18, 2021 • Looking for Christ’s RetBrother Jeff Autry preaches about speaking peace with one another in 1st Peter 3 and James 3. Brother Jonah Lowrance preaches from Galatians 2 showing that we are justified by Christ’s imputed righteousness alone. We can therefore, live in liberty for others. Elder Bryce Lowrance concludes the morning by tying together the thoughts of Jeff and Jonah. He preaches from 1st Peter 3:11 and encourages the congregation to not just wish for peace but to pursue it and bring it into their lives.

July 11, 2021 • Looking for Christ’s Return

Looking for Christ’s Return • July 22, 2021 Elder Bryce preaching from 1st Thessalonians chapter 5, teaches us that we are to comfort and encourage one another with the fact that Christ is coming back to redeem us. Paul’s focus in this passage shows that we the doctrine of the resurrection is to be used to build and strengthen the body of Christ in the local assembly.

July 4, 2021 • The Perfect Law of Liberty

The Perfect Law of Liberty • July 4, 2021 (James 1:17-27) The writer James expounds upon the conclusion Jesus makes in the Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 7. He gives further examples of the life of those who rejoice in the preaching of the gospel but do not apply it to their lives. They have no true identity and seem to be lost in this world. To the contrary, those that hear the gospel and try to live it in their daily lives, see Christ in themselves. They have peace and enjoy “true liberty.”

June 13, 2021 Psalm 2 _ Kiss the Son

Psalm 2 • June 13, 2021 Just like the times of 1st Century, the enemies of God still conspire against God and against His church. God laughed at their feeble efforts then and He laughs at them now. The people of God can take great comfort that Christ loves His bride and will protect her with all His power. The nations of the world should take heed and “kiss the Son” by acknowledging his almighty power and dominion.

June 6, 2021 Psalm 48

Brother Jonah preaches from Galatians on the topic of attempting to justify ourselves by our own works. Elder Bryce continues with the same subject in Romans 7 and 8. We see from the example of the Apostle Paul that we will never find peace if we seek to justify ourselves outside of trusting and resting in the finished work of Christ. When we seek to love others, we fulfill the law, and we feel justified.
