The Maine* Idea: Our sure hope in Jesus allows us to have joy, independent of circumstances, to pray with confidence about the future, and to give thanks, even before we see the answers. And so, God wills us to be 1) relentlessly joyful (16), 2) persistently prayerful (17), and 3) consistently thankful (18).
The Maine* Idea: Let God’s grace toward us motivate us to love and encourage one another! 1. Respect our teacher and leaders; 2. Reach out to one another; and 3. Remember to do good for all. [The video froze at the 30 minute mark, cutting out the last three minutes which are available on the audio recording].
The Maine* Idea: We live in the light of our sure hope: Jesus will return! That means certain judgment of the lost, and joyous rescue for all who believe.
The Maine* Idea: This too will pass. Jesus is Lord of History, and His victory over death gives us hope as we face trials today. [For the fourth week, this is not a typical sermon, but a message given from the church office during the COVID-19 pandemic. May God’s word accomplish the purpose for which it is sent!]
The Maine* Idea: In the context of the Passion Week, the triumphal entry invites us to worship the Passover-King, the Lamb on the throne, and calls us to love Him, trust Him, and obey Him. [For the third week, this is not a typical sermon, but a message given from the office of Boothbay Baptist Church during the COVID-19 crisis.]
The Maine* Idea: His presence can bring peace in the crises that come with life in this fallen world.
This study is not a typical sermon, but a Bible lesson from my office as we are not meeting for a time due to COVID-19! The Maine* Idea: When trials come, don’t despair, rather, look to the Lord, remember His faithfulness, trust in His goodness.
The Maine* Idea: God is pleased as we live a life of holiness, love, and integrity before the world.
The Maine* Idea: We should rejoice in seeing others established and growing in their faith. It’s not all about “me,” it’s about Jesus building His church! [The Sermon audio failed this week, our apologies. We are providing a PDF of the study that served as the basis of Pastor Steve’s message].
The Maine* Idea: God has given us the church to encourage us when life gets hard, so we can stay faithful and carry out His mission until He comes.
