communion is a common union of broken people, who are made whole by the body and blood of Jesus Christ. We are united by our differences, and there is a seat for everyone at the table.

#8 The New Self

series: Love Incorruptible

title: The New Self

date: June 11, 2017

teacher: Jacob Bender

scriptures: Ephesians 4:17-32, Matthew 7:12, Ecclesiastes 7:2, 2 Corinthians 5:14, 

This section begins by working on the issue of ME. The issue of YOU. 

Paul tells us to put OFF the old self… put away everything that used to be us… the former life… the corruption… the greed that drives most of our lives. Put it all away. 

That used to be your life… That is not your life anymore

You have learned Christ… Christ has done something NEW in you.

#1 Loneliness

series: Jesus & Me (and the people we need)

title: loneliness

teacher: Jacob Bender

date: February 7, 2016

scriptures: John 17:6-11, Genesis 1:26, Genesis 2:18, Ecclesiastes 4:9-12, Proverbs 5:14, Isaiah 59:14, Romans 5:8, Luke 5:31, 1 John 4:7-8

We want our relationships to look like the gospel.

and the only way to do that is to understand the gospel, and then let it trickle into the way that we relate to one another. Everybody, deep down, has a desire:

to be fully known.

to be fully accepted.

and to be fully loved.

and the good news, right out of the gate, is you are all of those things!

Jesus Christ knows everything about you. He knows you fully. And yet he still accepts you just the way that you are and he still loves you with all of his heart to the point of literally laying down his life for you.

and the types of relationships that are worth having, look like that… they look like the gospel. The gospel should trickle. It should apply everywhere. We love, because he first loved us (1 John 4:19) – well how did he first love us?

He loved us, and accepted us, fully knowing us.
