In today's sermon, Pastor Richard Crocker (Mentoring Pastor, Cheyenne Berean Church) teaches about the roots of the Berean Fellowship and her churches. Freedom Church is a Berean Church founded in 2018 on the authority of Scripture. We are rooted in the Word of God!
We believe the Bible is God’s only written communication of Himself and His plans and purposes for mankind. Therefore, we will believe its promises, obey its commands, and apply its principles.
In this sermon, Pastor Scott looks at the question in Psalm 119:9, “How can a young person keep their way pure?” The answer is found in the second half of the verse, “By obeying your [God’s] word.” Psalm 119:10-16 outline six courses in a spiritual diet that works.
The question of authority is important. We all have a source of authority in our lives, someone or something that guides and drives us, something that rules. For most of us, like the Sanhedrin in today’s story, it is ourselves. We are not really interested in surrendering that rule to anyone else.
However, we must. And that someone else is God. His authority will eventually be recognized by everyone (every knee will bow, every tongue confess, that Jesus is LORD), better to do so now than before you stand before God in judgment.
In this passage, we see Jesus shut down hypocrisy and idolatry and begin to rebuild missions and prayer. We also see how prayer is rooted in history, faith, confidence, expectancy, and forgiveness.
In this passage, we see Jesus and his disciples around the city of Jericho. He tells of his death and resurrection, but the disciples still don’t’ get it. Jesus teaches his disciples about servant leadership. Finally, Jesus restores sight to a blind man. What a day! His eyes are now set on the task before him in Jerusalem.
When folks from Jesus’ hometown met the man they knew as a boy, they were forced to consider who He was, what He said, and what the implications of this Son of Man were. Today, we must consider Jesus as well.
We saw last week how Jesus saved a man. Today, we see Jesus save a woman and a child. Jesus saves everyone who calls on the name of the Lord!
In today's message, Pastor Scott walks through the Parable of the Lamp and asks some important questions: "What is the light? What is darkness? What is hiding the light? How do you let your light shine? Are you listening? What are you listening to? What should you be listening to? How do you listen? and What does this have to do with accountability?"
In this passage, we look at the Parable of the Soils from Mark 4 and ask ourselves what the soil of our heart looks like? Is it hard, shallow, crowded, or good?
