Christ, The Son of David (Mark #43)

 

Shortly after He is questioned two different times by the priests in an effort to trap him, Jesus was able to begin teaching. He starts by immediately address another tough topic – how can the Christ be the “Son of David” and also David’s Lord.

In this quandary, Jesus knew something the people listening did not. By the very fact that he is God, he already knows the beginning and the end of time. While the people listening couldn’t make sense of this conundrum, Jesus already understood how this not only made sense, but how it would ultimately play out.

Protected by Wisdom (The Protection of Proverbs #2)

Proverbs, chapter 1 verses 20-33 still speaks to our culture to this very day. Humanity, as a whole, has turned its back on the wisdom of God and put faith in its own abilities and knowledge. This means that we are destined to learn lessons that God has warned us against over and over again.

In today’s sermon, Pastor Erin Bird explains how ignorance is not necessarily bad. When we choose to trust God’s wisdom, it is a form of choosing a Godly ignorance.

Why Proverbs (The Protection of Proverbs #1)

Chapter 2 of Proverbs begins with Solomon addressing his son and imparting words of wisdom that his son should heed. This instruction is much like the “Sand Palace” on Mexico Beach, Florida that was built to withstand even the most devastating hurricanes. Just like this structure has stood when all the other buildings around it have been destroyed, Solomon is hoping to help his son stand up when everyone around him is failing to honor God.

The kids join the congregation this Sunday as Pastor Erin encourages parents to use Solomon’s Godly counsel in raising their children.
