Angry With God

Jonah 3 records how Jonah finally preached, Nineveh penitently responded, and God graciously relented. If the story ended there, it would be like a fairy tale with the perfect “happily ever after” conclusion. However, there is more to this story. Jonah 4 records Jonah’s frustration over Nineveh’s fate, causing us to ponder some questions. Why was Jonah angry, was Jonah’s anger appropriate, and what should we take away from God’s confrontation of Jonah’s anger? Sermon Handout 4 But it displeased Jonah…

The Mourners

In Matthew 5:4, Jesus said, “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.” In other words, Jesus indicated that citizens of God’s kingdom manifest good grief, but what is He talking about?

A Sober Ethic

What does the Bible say about alcohol and other intoxicating substances? Does God’s Word only condemn the state of drunkenness and intoxication, or does it also condemn the recreational consumption of such substances? Our culture condemns consumption of intoxicating substances when it crosses the line into what is considered illegal or abusive. Is that the ethical standard to which we are to adhere as citizens of heaven or does God present a different standard? Sermon Handout EPHESIANS 5:15-21 15 Look carefully…
