Better Together—Draw Near, Part 2

May 5, 2022

There is an open door, and the name of that door is Christ. But in order to go through that door you can't be trying to go through another door too. Jesus is the only way, and there is a choice that has to be made. You may think you're losing something, but once you go through the right door, Christ and everything else is yours.

Free Resource | Does the Bible Promote Tolerance or Intolerance?
One group says the Bible is a book about love, mercy, and kindness. They think of the story of the Good Samaritan and of Jesus telling us to turn the other cheek. So how could anyone think the Bible prevents a tolerant society? But for another group, the Bible is far from tolerant. There’s the conquest of Canaan. There’s Elijah killing Baal’s prophets by his own hand. And in the New Testament, Jesus talks often about hell. That’s not tolerant. What then can we say in answer to this question?

Today we are seeing a lack of understanding about what the church is and why we should meet in person. Church is not about watching something on TV, it's about gathering with God's people around God's Word.

As Christians, we need to meet together in person. When we come together in worship, we discover the reality that we are called together as a church. We truly are better together.

The book of Hebrews says that Jesus is better, or greater, 25 times. It's also better to keep meeting together, as this passage emphasizes. It's so important that Christians gather together in person to worship Christ.

Peter is putting on a mask. How do we take off these masks? The only way to not pretend is to realize that you are okay as you are now. You are accepted by God.

In the Bible, life doesn't simply mean existence. It means thriving, true life. One of the distinctives of Christianity is that it's not simply a set of rules to follow, it offers us a whole new life. Through faith in Christ, we come back to life.

Ultimately, what is a mid-life crisis? It reveals what idols you've been worshipping for the first half of your life. We need to be careful of burnout and have a good, biblical response to it.

At one point or another, the challenge will come. Will you give in completely to the identity of the world? Or will you take a stand? Somewhere, at some point, you have to say, "This is who I am."

Here Paul reaches out to the church in Phillipi and says that his joy will be complete, but the bigger goal is that the church please God. Together they will find joy in the process of ongoing, real unity.

Unity is not that complex. This is not a matter that stems from a high-flowing knowledge of the Scriptures or something that is based upon tough theological negotiations. But the witness that unity amongst believers has to a watching world is key.
April 25, 2022
Peter was afraid and hypocritical. We are to be the opposite. Instead of fearing man, we need to fear God. Instead of putting on a pretentious, hypocritical show, we need to take off the mask.
