The Perfect Guy, Part 3

Nowadays, women often find themselves in relationships with men who don’t really think it’s important for dating to lead to marriage.  This seems to be acceptable within today’s popular culture.  But as we consider some Biblical principles of dating and relationships, Pastor Ford explains that if a man will not be accountable to anyone, and will not give you his last name, then he won’t be responsible as somebody to be in a relationship with.

The Perfect Guy, Part 2

We’ll hear more of Pastor Ford’s description of the perfect guy, based on Genesis 2, and we’ll see that this person has respiration from God—God breathed in him and gave him the breath of life.  The perfect guy also has revelation—he’s a man of the book.  And, he has a relationship given by God.  These are just a few of the characteristics we’ll learn today as we look at how to identify the perfect guy.

The Perfect Guy, Part 1

As we start a new study from Genesis 2, we’ll begin to look at the attributes of someone who could be considered “the perfect guy.” We’ll also learn some characteristics of someone who’s not.  And Pastor Ford will ask, “What do you do when your prince charming turns into a frog?  What do you do when your knight in shining armor turns out to be a fool in aluminum foil?”

Treasured Truth Weekend - Still on the Wheel, Part 1

Pastor Ford compels us to come to Christ no matter what our circumstances.  We shouldn’t try to clean ourselves up.  Rather we should just bring our stinky selves to Christ and He will cover us.  We’ll end up smelling like His sweet aroma, instead of the pigsty we’ve just come from.

The Significance of Suffering, Part 3

When we’re going through persecution—but we know that we have Biblical salvation— that assurance should override any suffering we may be experiencing.  How can that override any suffering?  Well, it’s because suffering’s only temporary, but salvation is eternal.

The Significance of Suffering, Part 2

Pastor Ford explains that in order for suffering to be remedial, then what we have to realize is that we need to quit looking at the circumstances, and also quit looking at Satan.  Instead, we have to start looking at the Savior!  We have to begin by saying, “I know that God is controlling this thing.”  And then we have to trust that He is going to get us through whatever we are facing.

The Significance of Suffering, Part 1

Suffering always has significance.  God allows us to go through what we’re going through to develop in us something that is lacking in our character and to strengthen our walk with Him.  And when we endure suffering, that’s when we find that we become more mature spiritually.

Passing the Baton of Faith, Part 2

Passing the Baton of Faith, Part 1

Mothers have the responsibility of passing the baton of faith to the next generation.  As we look at 2 Timothy 2, we’ll discover that Timothy’s mother knew that it’s not how high you jump or how loud you shout on Sunday, but it’s how straight you walk after your feet hit the ground on Monday.
