The Church - The End of the First Century

This week we cover "church history".  For years this was my least favorite subject in school... but I was wrong - understanding our history tells us a LOT about our present.

The Church - Paul’s Favorite Metaphor

In 1 Corinthians 12 Paul introduces his favorite metaphor for the church - the Body of Christ.

The Church - Acts 10 - Everything Changes

Acts 10 records the story of Peter's vision and the visit with Cornelius.  Peter's vision changed not only his attitude, but the direction of the church forever.  If Peter doesn't get this right, the Church doesn't grow beyond the Jewish believers of the day.

The Church - Acts 2 - 6

There's a LOT that happens in these chapters.  By the end of chapter 5, there are over 5,000 men (plus women and children) who have come to Christ!

The Church - Acts 2 - The Beginning of the Church

Jesus said "I will build my church".  When He said that in Matthew 16, He was looking forward to the time the disciples would quickly learn to lead as Jesus intended.

In Acts 2, we take a look at the Day of Pentecost.

The Church - A Study for Christian Leaders

The Church - A Study for Christian Leaders

One of the most important words Peter uttered before the cross is found in Matthew 16: "You are the Christ (Messiah), Son of the living God."

Jesus goes on to tell the disciples for the first time about the Church and His impending death for them.

Nehemiah 11-13

As we finish out the book of Nehemiah, we see a familiar problem.

For 12 years, Nehemiah was the governor over Jerusalem before he returned to Babylon to serve the King.  We're not sure when he returned (probably around 2 years later), but when he did, everything had fallen apart.  The priests, levites and those who took care of the temple had abandoned their tasks.  Even the most ardent enemy of Nehemiah had moved into one of the storage rooms in the Temple!

Once the walls were done, Nehemiah turned his attention to restoring the people.

Nehemiah 6 - 3 Foiled Plots and the Walls Are Completed

Nehemiah 6 gives us a glimpse into the intense opposition he faced as he completed the task God had given him.  With each plot, Nehemiah responded with insight, wisdom and a firm belief in God's revealed plan.

Nehemiah 4 & 5 - Opposition & Sin

Whenever we try and do something great for God, Satan is right there hoping, scheming and working towards your utter failure.  Nehemiah faced tremendous opposition from leaders of surrounding areas - all of whom hated what was happening in Jerusalem.

Nehemiah dealt with with prayer and action!
