  • The Poverty In Riches Series

    Contributed by Christopher Benfield on Mar 14, 2018

    A rich young man came to Jesus desiring eternal life. He felt good about himself, but left saddened because he was unwilling to meet the Lord's demands for eternal life. We must come to the Lord by faith alone for salvation.

    The Poverty in Riches Mark 10: 17-22 Our text today reveals a young man very eager to get to Jesus. It is apparent that he had heard of Jesus’ ministry and the promise of eternal life. We will discover that this young man was blessed with all one could desire. He had wealth; he had status and more

  • Reconciliation: Restored Relationship Series

    Contributed by Christopher Benfield on Mar 11, 2018

    Sin hinders our relationship with God, creating division and preventing fellowship. We have no way to restore that which sin has lost, but God provided the means of reconciliation through the offering of His Son.

    Reconciliation: Restored Relationship Romans 5: 8-11 As we continue the series, Understanding Christianese, I want us to take a moment and consider the state of affairs in our nation, and even around the world. Particularly in America, if I had to choose one word to describe where we are more

  • Jesus Love The Children Series

    Contributed by Christopher Benfield on Mar 7, 2018

    While the disciples viewed children as trivial, Jesus welcomed them. He revealed that child-like faith was essential to salvation. May we emphasize children's ministry and continue to possess child-like faith!

    Jesus Loves the Children Mark 10: 13-16 Immediately following His teaching on divorce and the expectations of marriage Jesus is met by parents who brought their children unto Him, desiring that He touch them. They were literally seeking a blessing from the Lord for their children. This was a more

  • Justification: Declared Righteous Series

    Contributed by Christopher Benfield on Mar 4, 2018

    Justification lies at the very core of our Christian faith; it is central to Christianity. Martin Luther declared justification as the cornerstone of Christianity. It is a doctrine we must understand and embrace.

    Justification: Declared Righteous Romans 3: 23-26 As we continue the series, Understanding Christianese, I want to consider a term that every believer should know and embrace – justification. For those who have attended church over the years, you have heard this word spoken many times, but I am more

  • The Debate About Divorce (Part 2) Series

    Contributed by Christopher Benfield on Feb 28, 2018

    Jesus was asked of the Pharisees regarding divorce, not necessarily desiring to learn from Him. Unfortunately most approach the issue this way today. Their minds are already made up. We need a biblical perspective.

    The Debate about Divorce (Part 2) Mark 10: 1-12 Today I hope to conclude the passage we began to consider in our last study. I am well aware that this is a very sensitive and somewhat contentious issue. Likely everyone here has been affected by divorce in some way or another. I too know the more

  • Propitiation: Wrath Appeased Series

    Contributed by Christopher Benfield on Feb 25, 2018

    Propitiation is a word that most may be unfamiliar with, but every believer needs to understand and embrace its significance. Christ Jesus provided the sacrifice, the payment to appease the wrath of God for sin - our propitiation.

    Propitiation: Wrath Appeased 1 John 2:2 As we continue our series: Understanding Christianese, I want to consider one of the most endearing and beautiful words in the English language – propitiation. Webster defines propitiation as “an atoning sacrifice.” The word propitiate is defined as “to more

  • The Debate About Divorce (Part 1) Series

    Contributed by Christopher Benfield on Feb 21, 2018

    Divorce is a sensitive issue that has touched a majority of lives, either directly or indirectly. With so many people affected by this issue, we need to consider what the Bible has to say and look at if from a biblical perspective.

    The Debate about Divorce (Part 1) Mark 10: 1-12 Our text today deals with an issue that has caused debate, division, and devastation for centuries. It is a sensitive issue that has affected a large majority of people, either directly or indirectly. I am well aware of the hurt and devastation more

  • Redemption: Free From Guilt Series

    Contributed by Christopher Benfield on Feb 18, 2018

    Redemption speaks of being delivered from bondage through the payment of another. Christ provided our redemption, purchasing it with His blood. We have been removed from the slave market, never to return!

    Redemption: Free from Guilt Ephesians 1:7 As I read publications, articles, and blogs today, many caution preachers and pastors in regard to using particular theological terms. These writers warn of a disconnect between the world around us and those within the church. The church has long used more

  • An Honest Word About A Horrific Place Series

    Contributed by Christopher Benfield on Feb 14, 2018

    Most people believe in existence beyond the grave, with the majority assuming everyone will eventually wind up in heaven, or some place of euphoric bliss. Heaven is reserved for the saved, but hell will be a reality for those apart from Christ.

    An Honest Word about a Horrific Place Mark 9: 42-50 As I studied this passage, I was reminded of the common attitude that permeates modern society. We live in an age when most believe that truth is relative, rather than absolute. Most believe in existence beyond the grave, with the majority more

  • The Bond With The Gospel Series

    Contributed by Christopher Benfield on Feb 11, 2018

    Being saved by grace through faith in the finished work of Christ creates an eternal bond with the Gospel. As we grow and mature in the Lord, the Gospel continually shapes our lives. The life of every believer should be directed by the Gospel.

    The Bond with the Gospel Philippians 1: 27-30 For the past few weeks we have been considering the impact of the Gospel in our lives and the challenge of allowing the Gospel to be central in our lives. Clearly the Gospel brings about an immediate transformation, from the inside-out. 2 Cor.5:17 – more

  • The Least Shall Be Greatest Series

    Contributed by Christopher Benfield on Feb 7, 2018

    As Jesus and the disciples journeyed toward Capernaum, the disciples debated among themselves which of them was the greatest. knowing their discussion, Jesus taught a lesson on serving others. To have position in the kingdom, one must be willing to serve.

    The Least shall be Greatest Mark 9: 30-41 After delivering the young man from the unclean spirit, Jesus and His disciples have departed and are on their way back to Capernaum. As they journeyed, Jesus again reminded the disciples that he would be delivered into the hands of sinful men, die, and more

  • The Beauty In The Gospel Series

    Contributed by Christopher Benfield on Feb 4, 2018

    Paul's life was shaped by the Gospel. Even in the face of an uncertain future and difficulty, he embraced change in life through the power of the Gospel. That is the beauty in the Gospel.

    The Beauty in the Gospel Acts 20: 24-27 Our text today finds the apostle Paul on his way to Jerusalem. He is well aware of the animosity of the Jews toward him, and quite uncertain what his future will hold once he arrives. One would expect him to be very nervous and apprehensive about more

  • Help My Unbelief Series

    Contributed by Christopher Benfield on Jan 31, 2018

    Life on top of the mountain is exciting and often rejuvenating. Unfortunately we can't dwell on the mountain continually. Trails come in the valleys of life. It's imperative to use the lessons learned on the mountain when we face a valley.

    Help my Unbelief Mark 9: 14-29 Today our text takes a captivating twist. Peter, James, and John had experienced the glory of Jesus on the Mount of Transfiguration. Their experience was so wonderful that Peter desired to remain on the mountain. Jesus knew they could not stay there; He had much more

  • The Burden For The Gospel Series

    Contributed by Christopher Benfield on Jan 28, 2018

    Paul had a convicting burden for the Gospel that compelled him to preach and share the good news. Every believer should share that burden. Are we burdened for the Gospel, compelled to share?

    The Burden for the Gospel 1 Corinthians 9:16 As we continue our series, A Gospel Centered Life, I want to address the need for a proper burden concerning the Gospel. In my estimation, our text reveals one of the most convicting, compelling, and honest statements the apostle Paul ever made. In more

  • Confusion After The Transfiguration Series

    Contributed by Christopher Benfield on Jan 24, 2018

    Following the Transfiguration the disciples were confused about everything they had witnessed and the Lord's departure. He offered clarity in their confusion. There is wisdom through the Word, but we must seek it.

Three of the disciples were privileged to accompany Jesus on the mountain as He was transfigured before them, revealing His glory. They had walked with Jesus for several more
