Simple (Cstone U)
In the final week of the class, we talk about the “end of the world” and the beginning of the next. We’ll also discuss Heaven in the Bible and in pop culture.
This week is a bit different since it was recorded after the class was over: we had a slight technical difficulty during the class. Despite that, we’ll take a brief look at what the Church calls “sacraments” or “ordinances”—water baptism, communion, and marriage.
Prayer and worship are two foundational disciplines, or behaviors, that are critical to our spiritual health. However, could it be that prayer and worship aren’t “two” separate disciplines as we’ve all assumed but two parts of the greater discipline of “loving God and living in His presence”?
This week, we’ll look at how God views the church and what its mission is, but first, let’s bring some clarity to last week’s topics.
Tonight, we’re going to fly through three topics that could have been given their own night: faith, sin, and the difference between mercy and grace.
We were made in the image of God but chose our own way. Jesus was sent to be our new “Way,” to redeem us and restore the image of God within us.
Jesus was sent for a variety of reasons—saving us, comes to mind—but one of the very important reasons was to reveal God to us. In this session, we’ll look at Jesus as The Word and The Way; The Lamb and The Lion; and finally, The God of the Party.
In this class, we dig deep into the Bible in search of the simple faith that first drew us to Christ. This week, we’ll look at some of the character and attributes of God. The topic is infinite; the class won’t be. Please treat this course as an appetizer as you continue to “feast” daily upon God’s Word.
