"With relationship comes responsibility." Listen to this teaching from Chuck Hartness, Pastor of Adults, from our sermon series on The Book of Amos, 'Law & Love.' In 'Presuming Upon God's Grace, we see how God offers His grace and forgiveness to us as a free gift and how we demonstrate our understanding of this free gift in our extension of grace to others and how we respond to our own sin.
Comparison to the ways of others leads to judgment. Commitment to the ways of God leads to love. Listen to this teaching from our current sermon series, 'Law & Love' on the Book of Amos. In 'Us and Them' Amos confronts God's people with the reality that their lack of concern for the oppressed is ultimately a rejection of God Himself. Jesus' command to love others is rooted in understanding how great God is, how much we need Him, and how great the gift of salvation is.
Knowledge about God and the Bible, excitement about God, and a successful life may all be nice things, but they are not guarantees that we actually close to God. Listen to this teaching from our sermon series on the Book of Hosea. In 'The Ways of the Lord are Right,' we see how turning to God and away from false securities leads to the ultimate security we crave. Jesus is the fulfillment of every promise of deliverance and redemption and has the authority to claim victory over all things, even death.
