The Cure for Gnostic Christianity

John 21:23-25

by Eric Mock

The cure for gnostic Christianity is an ever increasing and deeper love of Christ shaped by knowledge of Him and obedience to His calling for you, for the greatness of God was revealed to us in the inexhaustible love and life of Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God.

John 21:23-25

Believe!

John 20:24-31

by Eric Mock

Jesus is God and Savior. Such belief does not flow from God providing us enough evidence of that truth, but that God opens our heart to believe that Jesus is all Whom He said that He is. Great faith does not come from a greater number of signs or proofs,but from a greater love and devotion to Jesus as Lord and Savior.

The Cure for Practical Atheism: Faith

John 20:1-10

by Eric Mock

The tomb was empty, and Jesus did all that He said He would do. Yet a seemingly impossible situation revealed a shortfall in faith, a faith needed to connect God's Word to the life we each live. We are reminded that our peace is only found when we walk by faith, and not by sight.

John 20:1-10

They Will Know Us By Our Love

Ephesians 5:1-6

by Eric Mock

As followers of Christ, we are to live our lives in love as God has displayed His love. This is in contrast to love as the world defines it, yet many will attempt to deceive you that it is. Only God's love has at it's core the desire to satisfy Him rather than self.

True Love

1 Corinthians 13:7-8

by Eric Mock

Love is not an expression or feeling, but it is deeper. It is a bond that transcends hardship and hopelessness and transcends time itself.

Jesus Our Peace

John 20:19-21

by Eric Mock

In Christ we are given a peace unshakable, a peace of God's presence and promise. Jesus secured this peace both at the cross and through conquering death. And this peace is ours through faith, as without this faith we will remain in fear and hopelessness in this world.

Jesus, A Shield About Me

John 17:11-12

by Eric Mock

The world seeks to unravel and destroy the things of God, exalting man and worldly things above God. We even fight this in our flesh. But Jesus ever prays for us, and lifts us up before our Father that would guard and protect us, so that we would be united in walking and proclaiming His love and His truth.

The Sixth Sola

John 17:6-8

by Eric Mock

People do not come to faith in Jesus, to a life transformed by His Word, through superior thinking or even response to crisis. People come to faith in Jesus as God reveals it to them as Truth. And this Truth - eternal life and peace in Jesus.

The Church in Message

by Eric Mock

The Church in Heart

Acts 4:32-33

by Eric Mock

The Church in Identity

Acts 2:38-39

by Eric Mock

The local church is identified as those who have cast off the love of self and this world, and turned in faith to love Christ and others; those whom God has called to Himself and now who walk by the Spirit in obedience to Him and in love.

The Compass

John 16:33

by Eric Mock

Suffering and hardship are a reality in this world. But stand courageously, for in Jesus we have peace in this world and a certain hope.

The Church in Worship

John 4:23-24

by Eric Johnson

Worship is about ascribing worth to God in all that we do - both individually and corporately - such that God is glorified, the Church is edified, and the gospel is magnified for the world to see.

Hitch Your Joy to the Right Hope

John 16:16-24

by Eric Mock

Real and enduring joy is rooted in certain hope. Sorrow and suffering are turned into joy, not through problems being solved in this world, rather through hitching your hope on the promises of God and on Jesus.

The Spirit's Guidance

John 16:12-15

by Eric Johnson

The Spirit of truth, under the authority of the Father and the Son, uniquely guided the disciples of Jesus Christ into all the truth, such that we now have the infallible truth of God in our Bibles. Rather than looking outside the Bible for truth, or seeking to alter the truth, we should look to the Spirit's guidance, that he might illuminate the glorious truth of Jesus Christ in our hearts and minds as we read his Word.

Our Helper He Amid the Flood

John 15:26-27

by Eric Johnson

In John 15 and 16, we are warned of the inevitable hatred and persecution that accompanies the life of the Christian. In the midst of these warnings, however, Jesus points us to the Divine Helper who bears witness about Jesus both to us and through us, and who strengthens us to live all to the glory of God even when it hurts.

Being Hated and Rejected Like Jesus

John 15:18-25

by Eric Mock

In contrast to the greatest love, Christ also brings out the greatest hate. There is no greater hate than the rejection and hate of Jesus, for He stands in opposition to the desires of this world. Therefore, believers who openly declare Christ in their actions and words can expect rejection and hatred.

Loving and Living Like Jesus

John 15:12-17

by Eric Mock

The greatest love of all, a love that followers of Christ are called upon to show, is the love that Jesus showed in laying down His life to see people set right with God through the Gospel.
