Stick with the Scriptures

In 2 Timothy 3:14-17, we find a very familiar passage to many of us where Paul exhorts Timothy to remain faithful to the simple Gospel truth he was raised on, in contrast to the false teachers who invent new doctrines to tickle the ears of their followers.

Sardis: The Dying Church

In Revelation 3:1-6, we read the letter from Jesus to the church at Sardis. It is a solemn reminder to us to remain vigilant and active in love and good works, lest we fall under a similar condemnation.

Useful Vessel in the House of God

In 2 Timothy 2:20-26, Paul uses a metaphor of vessels of gold, silver, clay and wood to describe people, but there is some disagreement amongst scholars about whom Paul is speaking and exactly what he means. Pastor Vitaliy attempts to shed some light on this difficult passage.

Our Confidence in Christ

In Hebrews 4:14-16, the author speaks of Christ as our great high priest and the confidence we can have to approach God in supplication because of Christ’s intercession on our behalf.

Jesus Revealed

In John 21:1-14, we see Jesus third appearance to his disciples following his resurrection. By this time, we might expect them to be excited and eager to spread the gospel, yet instead we find them returning to their former life as fishers of fish.

Grace-Empowered

In 2 Timothy 2:1-7, we see Paul’s charge to his child in the faith, Timothy, to re-commit himself to the preaching of the gospel in the face of persecution, especially in light of Paul’s own dire situation as his final imprisonment leading up to his death. Paul encourages Timothy to be strengthened by grace.

Sola Gratia

Easter’s Footrace

In John 20:1-9, we see Simon Peter and John race to the tomb upon hearing Mary’s news that Jesus’ body is missing. As we have come to expect, the disciples fail to understand what has happened… until the lights turn on for John, and he begins to grasp the truth in faith, without seeing the risen Lord.
