The book of Genesis is the book of beginnings. Many are surprised, however, to learn that grace is first found in Genesis. In this lesson we discover how in the story of Noah we find grace, faith and obedience - God's eternal formula for salvation.
It's always a good thing to have a reset. The first of every year if often a time when people take a look at their lives. In our first lesson of 2019, we take a look at three men in Luke 9:57-62 who teach us some practical lessons about our commitment to God.
In the final sermon of 2018 we take a look back and then forward. Waterview has been a successful church in the past, but we acknowledge the path to success is to keep moving forward. To inspire and encourage us we reflect on the words of Moses from Deut. 31:6.
On Sunday nights in 2018, we have focused on going through the Bible. We have read it and reached the end. What do you do when you get to the end and you know what the Bible says? Why should you keep reading the Bible even if you have read it before?
Sundays have always been important for those who are Christians. Yet, there is a problem if Christianity is only a Sunday experience. God desires we take our faith beyond the Sunday worship experience and allow it to impact those around us all week long. Romans 12 gives us a great reminder of how this may look in our lives today.
Grieving the loss of a loved one can make an already stressful holiday season even more difficult. Larry Barber from GriefWorks provides practical advice and counsel for navigating the season.
Philosophy will endlessly debate the question of "why" people suffer. A better, more productive question we should ask is "what are we going to do when problems happen?" In this lesson, we contemplate the value of difficulties and what we can do to overcome them with a Bible-based faith.
This lesson continues a brief, two-part series on seeing Jesus in Revelation. While there are confusing and debatable passages throughout the book, Jesus always rises above the speculation and becomes unveiled and even more clear to us even today.
Every Christian faces a difficult task. How do we live in the world but not like the world? Our task is to not allow the world to trick us into valuing things of the world over things of God.
It's easy to approach Revelation with fear and uncertainty. There are many things in Revelation that are confusing to us today that, apparently, was more clear to those who were accustomed to apocalyptic literature in the first century. But, Revelation does one thing we often miss: Revelation reveals Jesus. It's a beautiful and powerful thing we shouldn't miss that we want to expose in two brief lessons called "Jesus in Revelation."
