The Gospel Leads to Eternal Joy

Sound Doctrine is a Christian’s starting point for a life of godliness and contentment. The core of sound doctrine is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Sound Doctrine – the Gospel – produces godliness and contentment. Godliness with contentment is great gain. This great gain is eternal joy that begins at the moment of salvation and endures for eternity. Indeed, the Gospel leads to Eternal Joy – joy in Christ.

Scripture: 1 Timothy 6:3-10

What Do You Sing About?

What would you celebrate wildly and without inhibition? Someone who had cancer but hears the word, “you’re cancer free”? Someone who you’ve been praying for to become a Christian and they finally come to a saving knowledge of Jesus? There are a number of events that we would celebrate wildly and without inhibition; there would be an outburst of emotion! This is how we should read Luke 1:39-56 as Mary is singing to God for the gracious acts He has done, namely, that she would bear a son named Jesus, who would be the Savior and King of the world.

Scripture: Luke 1:39-56


I’m Thankful For You!

What brings people to a church? For almost every person it’s a place, program, personality or a pastor. What keeps a person at a church? Relationships—every time.

Paul’s words highlight:

  1. the relationship he had with the Philippians and
  2. the joy they brought him.

Scripture: Philippians 1:3-8; 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
