How Did We Get Our Bible and How Did God Keep it Safe From Errors?

For most people, the way that all those scrolls Moses, the prophets, and the Apostles wrote as God inspired them: is quite hard to understand and a bit mysterious. John takes to the marker board and draws out the pathway that God used to get His Word to us. He answers how God kept the Word in the CUSTODIANSHIP of the Apostles & Prophets. How Christ put His seal of Approval on the OT Scriptures; and how He gave the Apostles the seal of authenticity on the NT. If you want your mind challenged with truth, and your heart stirred with confidence: this session in God’s Word is for you!

God Pro-Life, Pro-Marriage, Pro-Justice, Pro-Work

Tagged With: / Exercises for Spiritual Health and Fitness

God’s Word is our source of truth, Jesus Christ Himself is the Truth; and we are to exercise the Discipline of Truth: knowing and defending His truth. That led us to ask: What are our Biblical Convictions (those based upon God’s Truth)—as Citizens of Heaven, while living on Earth? If we were to apply the truths or doctrines of the Scriptures as far as they relate to the current issues in human society, I would say that revealed in His Word:
GOD is Pro-Life—God is opposed to Abortion and Euthanasia. He is the Creator of Life, the One who grants conception.  
GOD is Pro-Marriage—God is opposed to Gay Unions, as well as divorce, adultery, fornication, pornography, and any other form of immorality.
GOD is Pro-Justice—God is opposed to murder, violence, discrimination, prejudice, and abuse of the weak, poor, and unborn; He invented capital punishment, and commands societies to have a just legal system.
GOD is Pro-Work—God is against indolence, sloth, entitlements, oppression of the poor by the rich, and every form of false hope produced by gambling and lotteries.

Roaring Lion – What Can Satan Do to Us, as Believers, If We Don’t Seek God’s Protection?

Tagged With: , / Spiritual Warfare Series

What Can Satan Do to Us, as Believers, If We Don’t Seek God’s Protection?

That is our focus today.

Today the most cunning terrorist in the Universe is stalking us as Christ’s followers.

As we open to 1 Peter 5 we learn that Satan is not only God’s adversary, he is ours.

He is coming after each of us who leave the door open to him.

He can devour us at any time we let the defensive perimeter down.

He is able to penetrate any safe room, secure location, and security system.

Designed for Christ’s Church

Tagged With: / Our Shared Life

Calvary Bible is a church that belongs to Jesus. He is building this church, and as we celebrate our 80th year as a local church, Jesus has great plans for each of us. Every believer has been specially designed by God, to do ministry in Christ’s church. 

Please open to the verse that is on the lanyard holding our nametags. Find the reference on your lanyard or someone’s around you (and if you don’t know them, say hello and meet them). 

When you have opened to the verse, stand with me for the reading of God’s Word. First Peter 2:5 is a “design-check” verse. It is God reminding us that we all need to check if we are together doing the ministry He designed us to do in Christ’s church.

How Godly Dads Can Bless Their Chlidren

On Father’s day perhaps the greatest question every husband and father should ponder is, “Am I fulfilling my high calling from God to bless my wife and children?”

Today as we open to I Peter 3, we proclaim the incredible duty that God has given to husbands and fathers to bless those around them in their life and family.

God’s Word declares that He has chosen husbands to lead their homes and marriages with Christlike love. Jesus showed us how to love by His example to His disciples. Part of what every born again husband and father will stand before Christ’s Throne and explain is how he did at blessing his wife and family with Christ’s sacrificial love.
