Building a Culture of Discipleship

October 5, 2014 | by: Josh Manley | 0 comments

A culture of discipleship is a culture in which we help each other grow in the grace of the cross and our Lord who went there. We intentionally meet together and point each other to Jesus, all that he holds out to us and help each other grow in our love for him and obedience to him.... Keep Reading

The Eternal Power of God's Word

November 7, 2013 | by: Josh Manley | 0 comments

We live in a world with competing powers. There are world powers which vie for strategic influence and territorial gain. There are corporate powers which seek greater marketshare. There are even powerful weapons which nations seek to acquire and other nations seek to prevent them from acquiring. We ourselves can feel powerless in the face of such a world. Yet, for the Christian, the greatest comfort comes when we realize that the Scriptures are clear that there is no greater power on this earth than God’s Word, the very Word which began and moves history....

Making the Most of Corporate Worship

June 10, 2013 | by: Josh Manley | 0 comments

How do we make the most of corporate worship? Since the resurrection of Jesus, Christians have gathered each week to sing praises to God, pray corporately together, and hear God’s Word preached. This gathering is not only a good idea but also commanded in Scripture for followers of Jesus (Heb. 10:25). So, how can we individually make the most of the time we spend together corporately?...

This is the surprise of Jesus and the why of the church, a rejected Messiah whose death and resurrection powerfully forged people together who would otherwise have no reason to be together. Such people band together in the church. In so doing, we testify to the resurrected Messiah whose authority still gives life to sinners in this fallen world.... Keep Reading

Jesus taught in parables

April 16, 2013 | by: Josh Manley | 0 comments

With even a basic knowledge of the Bible, many will know that Jesus taught in parables. Most assume that Jesus’ teaching on parables are nothing more than clever little stories giving sweet, non-intrusive life lessons. Yet, Jesus himself understood that this could not be further from the truth.... Keep Reading

Jesus has Authority!

April 3, 2013 | by: Josh Manley | 1 comments

Does Jesus really have authority? If he does, how much does he have, and are we accountable to it? The gospel writer Mark presents Jesus in a fast-paced, action-packed fashion in which he comes into a world that desperately needs him but at the same time does not know it and resists him. Jesus begins to exert authority over sickness, demons, the Old Testament law, and even people.... Keep Reading

Who Is Jesus?

March 25, 2013 | by: Josh Manley | 0 comments

Who is Jesus? From the rise of liberal protestant theology in the 19th century which rejected the miraculous side of Jesus’ ministry to the famous Jesus Seminars in the 20th century which sought to uncover the true historical Jesus, this is a question that has garnered great attention through the ages. The identity of Jesus of Nazareth has not only been a subject of interest to those who have an interest in religion, it has been a subject of interest to people all over the world.... Keep Reading

Why Church?

March 18, 2013 | by: Josh Manley | 0 comments

Why the Church? With so many social organizations or clubs that we could join, why add one more to the list? Many today think of the church as a nice add-on to life, maybe a place to take their kids, or a place for they themselves to make friends. So, why is it, from the Bible's perspective, do we have the church?... Keep Reading
