  • Thankful For The Cross

    Contributed by Christopher Benfield on Nov 18, 2018
     | 206 views

    As we consider Thanksgiving, we should be mindful of the many blessings we have in Christ. While these are too numerous to name, every believer should be thankful for the cross!

    Thankful for the Cross Galatians 6:14 This particular epistle of Paul was written to the churches in the region of Galatia. As you read and study this letter, a common theme becomes evident. Many in the region of Galatia had been influenced by the Judaizers, those who insisted the Law must be ...read more

  • Accused Before The Council Series

    Contributed by Christopher Benfield on Nov 14, 2018
     | 120 views

    Having been betrayed, arrested, and taken to the home of the high priest, Jesus then faced preposterous allegations. Finally admitting that He was the Son of God, the council voted to codemn Jesus for blasphemy.

    Accused before the Council Mark 14: 53-65 Jesus has now been betrayed by Judas in the Garden of Gethsemane and is led away to stand trial before the Sanhedrin. Our text deals with the mock trial, standing before the council of the Pharisees. John’s gospel records that Jesus stood before Annas, ...read more

    Contributed by Christopher Benfield on Nov 7, 2018
     | 169 views

    Following the agony Jesus endured in Gethsemane, Judas led the multitude there to arrest Him. Having all power, Jesus could have resisted, and yet He submitted to the Father's will. He endured Calvary for you and me!

    Betrayal in Gethsemane Mark 14: 43-52 The events of this faithful night are rapidly unfolding. Having departed the Upper Room with the eleven, Jesus had made His way to the Garden of Gethsemane. Knowing what was soon to come, Jesus spent some intimate time in prayer with the Father. We cannot ...read more

     | 173 views

    Closing this amazing chapter, Peter emphasized the importance and great significance of the Gospel. Not only does faith in the Gospel lead unto salvation, but the Gospel should continue to shape and guide our lives.

  • Agony In Gethsemane Series

    Contributed by Christopher Benfield on Oct 31, 2018
     | 219 views

    It is hard for us to comprehend the dual nature of Christ - being fully God and fully man. As He endured the agonies of Gethsemane, His humanity cried out regarding the physical suffering, while His deity cried out regarding the sin and separation.

    Agony in Gethsemane Mark 14: 32-42 As we continue to follow Jesus on this faithful night, His impending betrayal and crucifixion are drawing closer with each passing moment. Supper had ended, and along with the eleven, Jesus made His way from Jerusalem toward the Garden of Gethsemane. As they ...read more

  • The Gratitude For The Saints

    Contributed by Christopher Benfield on Oct 28, 2018
     | 173 views

    The success of a pastor cannot be fully measured until after his departure. If he has equipped the church to continue in his absence, then his ministry will have been successful.

    The Gratitude for the Saints 2 Peter 1: 12-15 As we continue to examine this first chapter of Peter’s second epistle, I am convicted and encouraged by the heart of this man of God. His love and concern for the church cannot be missed or overlooked. He is now a seasoned apostle and his focus is ...read more

  • Warned Of Denial And Desertion Series

    Contributed by Christopher Benfield on Oct 24, 2018
     | 203 views

    Have you ever been cautioned - never say never? Peter and the disciples were told they would deny and desert the Lord, but they vehemently denied they would ever commit such an act. We must seek the Lord and His strength to endure.

    Warned of Denial and Desertion Mark 14: 27-31 Our text reveals a critical moment in the lives of the disciples. They had just enjoyed the Last Supper with Jesus in the Upper Room. Having departed, they are making their way to the Garden of Gethsemane. While they are completely unaware, Jesus will ...read more

  • The Guidance For The Saints

    Contributed by Christopher Benfield on Oct 21, 2018
     | 341 views

    As believers, we experience complete transformation in salvation, and yet our salvation experience is an on-going process. We are saved wholly of grace, but that does not absolve us from responsibility in our Christian walk.

    The Guidance for the Saints 2 Peter 1: 9-11 Our text today is actually a continuation of the conversation we began to consider a few weeks ago. Clearly, Peter is writing to the church – to those saved by grace and added to the body of Christ. While we are not saved by works of the flesh, service ...read more

  • The Upper Room (Part 2) Series

    Contributed by Christopher Benfield on Oct 11, 2018
     | 204 views

    Imagine the shock of the disciples when Jesus declared that one of them would betray Him into the hands of sinful men. With that, they began to question - Lord, is it I? Could I possibly do such a thing? We often boast of our faith, but I fear we are unaware of what the flesh is capable of.

    The Last Supper (Part 2) Mark 14: 12-26 In our last study we began to look at this beautiful passage dealing with the Last Supper in the Upper Room. Jesus had met with His disciples as they prepared to eat the Passover meal. This was a feast the Jews had celebrated for centuries as they ...read more

  • The Last Supper (Part 1) Series

    Contributed by Christopher Benfield on Oct 4, 2018
     | 409 views

    As the disciples prepared for the Passover meal, they had no idea what was soon to happen. The Lamb of God had come to redeem humanity, and most of the Jewish people were completely unaware.

    The Last Supper (Part 1) Mark 14: 12-26 Our text today reveals one of the most intimate moments our Lord had with His disciples. It records their last meal together, and the intense emotion experienced on that faithful evening. While the disciples were unaware of the enormity of this moment, Jesus ...read more

  • The Growth Of The Saints

    Contributed by Christopher Benfield on Sep 30, 2018
     | 655 views

    The Lord provides our salvation, but that does not absolve us from any responsibility. We are responsible for our growth and maturity, striving for Christ-likeness in this life.

    The Growth of the Saints 2 Peter 1: 5-8 Following his introduction and reminder of the glorious benefit of salvation, Peter immediately extended a challenge to the believers who would read this letter. While salvation is an act of God’s marvelous grace offered to those who are underserving, ...read more

  • The Grace Afforded The Saints

    Contributed by Christopher Benfield on Sep 23, 2018
     | 439 views

    Promises are only as good as the ability of the one making the promise. Often promises are made, and yet the individual is unable to keep the promise. Such is never the case with the Lord. What He has promised, He will provide!

    The Grace afforded the Saints 2 Peter 1: 3-4 It is interesting to note, Peter penned this letter near the end of his life, V.14. No doubt he was mindful of what he faced, knowing the tactics of the Romans and their accepted practices of execution. However, like his contemporary Paul, Peter faced ...read more

The events recorded cover a span of just over twenty-four hours. At the conclusion of the chapter, we will find Jesus accused and condemned of the Sanhedrin in the ...read more

  • A Greeting To The Saints

    Contributed by Christopher Benfield on Sep 16, 2018
     | 247 views

    At times the church faces challenges from without, but often the greatest danger may come from within. If we are to combat the struggles associated with false doctrine, we must be settled in the Word.

    A Greeting to the Saints 2 Peter 1: 1-2 This second epistle of Peter is very similar in tone and intent to the second epistles of Paul. In large part, the second epistles were written to follow up on the first, and particularly to combat apostasy and false doctrine. Having written the first ...read more

     | 1,731 views

    Making His way toward the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus declared that He was the True Vine. Those abiding in Him would bear much fruit. Jesus took time to describe the significance of His position as the Vine and the great care afforded the branches.

    The True Vine John 15: 1-5 We have come to the last of the I Am statements recorded in John’s gospel. Along with the previous statement when Jesus declared He was the Way, the Truth, and the Life, these comments followed their intimate time within the Upper Room. Jesus and the disciples are at ...read more
