Proverbs Part 6
Posted by Chatman Laxton
In the 6th Part of our study of Proverbs, Chatman sheds to light the idea that we were created for the path that wisdom calls us to. In fact its the path of wisdom that was the first meeting place where God and Adam would convene on in the garden, building there relationship up. And since the fall, God has been calling us back, out of the bushes and back onto the path with Him. Starting in Proverbs 2, Chatman begins to show us that the path of wisdom holds in store for us protection and provision, which allows us to continue down the path into deeper things.

    Does He get your praise? In a culture of personalization, likes and dislikes, Melanie Bertoglio asks this pertinent question boldly to the church. Do we spend more time criticizing the atmosphere around our worship time, than actually in the presence of God? Melanie draws out of scripture that we are called to worship God, and He deserves our praise. Rebelling against this, lines us up with the Deceiver, Lucifer, who sought to steal the honor and praise that only belongs to God.

    Proverbs Part 5
    Posted by Chatman Laxton
    In the 5th part of the Proverbs series, Chatman brings a verse by verse comparison of the way Wisdom and Folly call us in chapter 9. As we see in the chapter, Wisdom and Folly have very different plans for us, through what they call us to. Our understanding of Folly's plan for our life(which is destruction) will hopefully make us think twice before we take the bait.

    In Philippians 3, Paul encouraged the church of the day to "press on toward the goal in order to obtain the prize," which was before them. In what amounted to crazy times with persecution of believers where false teachers who abounded in plenty were preying on the desperate, Paul called them to persevere after the truth! Pastor Ashley brings the same timely word for us as he challenges us, that even in the face of opposition we must not focus on what is going around us, rather we should "Press On" towards what is before us.

    Don’t Rob God
    Posted by Ashley Ellison
    From Malachi 3, Pastor Ashley teaches the church what God means when He commands us to not rob Him. God isn't concerned with running out of gold for the streets of heaven, rather he doesn't want us to rob Him of an opportunity to be bless from Him because of our obedience! God isn't concerned with our tithe because has missing out on something, its because of what it will unlock in our lives by being obedient, that he encourages us to "test Him in this."

    Remember
    Posted by Ashley Ellison
    In his sermon, Remember, Pastor Ashley asks us, "What symbols do you have in life that cause you to remember a moment or a season of your life?" When preparing to partake of communion, we understand the imperative to examine ourselves and to remember Christ and His sacrifice. We understand that the bread and juice represent the body and the blood of Jesus. Pastor Ashley points out the additional imperative from John 6:56 to abide, which means (in the Greek) to "remain and continue to remain" connected to Jesus in everyday life, not just on Sundays and Wednesdays.

    Essential: Indispensable
    Posted by Ashley Ellison
    In today's culture of dispensable technology, Pastor Ashley speaks to the wisdom of 1st Thessalonians 5:21 which tells us to ," Hold on to what is good." From this passage, Pastor shows us how essential it is for the church to stop and take a look at the things that we are "throwing away". If we want to continue to grow in the things of the Lord ,then we will have to start honoring the good things that God is placing in our lives.

    Posted by Chatman Laxton
    In the third part of our Proverbs study, Chatman Laxton brings in the idea that wisdom is a direct reflection of Christ in the New Testament. By looking through the lens of 1 Corinthians 1:30, and specifically the part that says "Jesus Christ has become our wisdom," we can have a deeper understanding of how important the wisdom in Proverbs is for us. God fully intended His people to be wise, and as His people, we should be "waiting at wisdom's doorpost" with expectation.

    Essential: Excellence
    Posted by Chatman Laxton
    In his message of "Essential: Excellence'', Chatman conveys the importance of Christians operating at the highest level. Through the message of Cain and Abel, Chatman brings to light that the favor Cain so desired could've been his had he only pursued excellence thoroughly. In our lives it's important to the kingdom that we operate in excellence or else we soon will be facing disasters of our own.
