Speaker: Jotham Manoranjan - Toady we take a break from our regular series in the book of Habakkuk and study of passage from 1 Corinthians. We are introduced to a gospel-centric account of Paul's missionary journey to Corinth. Paul characterizes his time in Corinth as a time of weakness and fear, and yet we see the miraculous work of God in building up his church. We see evidence of the spirits working in bringing those who are blinded and lost to the light of the glory of the Gospel. Join us today as we study the life of Paul, his message, am a conversion of the believers at Corinth.

Speaker: Josh MacAvoy - We have all heard it said, "familiarity breeds contempt." Our days are filled with tasks and habits so familiar, that we can almost perform them mindlessly. Of all the routines ion each week, our worship and response to God should never be take for granted or treated with contempt. This Sunday, we will look at Psalm 95, where God's people are exhorted to respond to God in anything but a routine fashion. Psalm 95 guides us along through exuberant praise, reverent contemplation, and a very timely warning regarding our response to God's word. In preparation, you can prayerfully consider Psalm 95 and Hebrews 3:7-4:13.

Speaker: John Moon - Today as we finish 2017 we will look at the closing of Paul’s letter to the church in Philippi. This letter is a very encouraging little letter to this church that he loves very much. The church in Philippi was the first church that Paul planted in Europe. You can read the story of how that happened in Acts 16. It’s just an unbelievable story. If you read through the letter, it’s very obvious that Paul has great affection for these believers in Philippi. Most of the letters in the New Testament are full of correction and reproof. This one is not. Overall, this is a very positive letter. In fact, it’s arguably the most positive letter that Paul wrote in terms of what he wanted to say to the church. So his purpose in writing this letter is to encourage them. He’s in jail when he wrote it, so he wanted to encourage them. But then he also wanted to give them some instruction and thank them for a gift of support that they had sent him while he was in prison. Paul is going to deliver one of the most treasured promises in scripture with a masterful stroke. “My God will supply every need of your according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” May God give us future grace to rest in his supply to his Glory as we look into the New Year.

Speaker: Danny Brooks - God the Father has made promises to God the Son that must be fulfilled before the end of the age. The Apostle Paul took the promises of Isaiah 52-53 as the basis for his gospel ambition and specific geographical strategies for mission and evangelism. He believed that God would fulfill those promises through his ministry as he left the familiar and established places of ministry for the unreached peoples in lands beyond. These same promises are still being fulfilled in our day. God intends to motivate us and provide direction for our ministry, not only in the Salt Lake valley, but also into regions beyond.

Speaker: Lukus Counterman - In Matthew 16:13-20 we see the first mention of the word “church,” and it comes from the mouth of Jesus, the Head of the church. Jesus uses this word to refer to an assembly of followers that he would build to proclaim his name and spread his blessing to the people of the earth. The heartbeat of Christ is described in this passage – he expresses his desire to build his church. What wonderful news when he says that he wants to use faith-filled disciples in the project. May he embolden each of us to herald the gospel and may he encourage each of us invest in his work.

Speaker: Lukus Counterman - Genesis 12 marks a turning point in the course of history. With the God’s call of Abram out of the city of Ur, things would be changed forever and a door of hope would be opened for the people of the world. Abram’s story provides a helpful paradigm for anyone who wants to understand God’s heart for missions. In our text this morning we will see that God’s mission involves understanding his calling, believing his promises, and spreading his fame to the ends of the earth. According to Gal. 3:7-9, Christians are children of Abraham by faith. What that means is, in Christ, we inherit Abraham’s blessing as well as his mission. That is, God wants us to go and be a blessing by spreading the fame of Jesus to the neighborhoods and nations of the world. The story of missions is the story of the spread of God’s blessing. May he use each of us in the task.

The Scriptures teach us to honor what is honorable and praise what is praiseworthy, and so as we celebrate the 5-year anniversary of Gospel Grace Church, we will take time to do what Hebrews 13:7 says, “Remember your leaders, those who spoke to you the word of God. Consider the outcome of their way of life, and imitate their faith.” Authentic Christian leaders reflect a genuine love for and commitment to the people they have been called to lead. They serve with authentic motives and sacrifice deeply. That sort of service to the Lord and ministry to the body of Christ is worth imitating. May the Lord teach us walk in a manner worthy of the gospel mimicking those who God has placed as examples to the flock.

Speaker: Jon Kopp - The glory of God changes everything. We know that on a grand scale. Weekends like Easter or amazing messages or miraculous life-change grab our attention. But, none of us live in those types of experiences. We all live in the normal. And, this morning, we are going to see from the early church that the glory of God doesn’t just affect the once-in-a-lifetime, it also affects the everyday. God uses awe-inspiring encounters with His glory to totally affect the normal patterns of our lives together. This morning, the first church is going to show us that healthy community is “normal” life totally affected by the glory of God. And that is something we all need.

Speaker: Will Galkin - Happy New Year! What was last year like? Was it a year filled with joy or sorrow? Did you obtain all of your goals? Do you have any regret from choices made? It could be that last year is one that you would rather forget. It could be that you are looking forward to 2017 as a fresh start. Perhaps, you should begin this year with a humble heart asking God to revive you. Revival is one of the themes of Psalm 119. When one cries out to God for revival it is a realization that he or she has a need that only God can meet. In addition, this need is so great that he or she desires for God to work right now. So if your spiritual compass is spinning and you are struggling to find your way come to God and ask him to revive your heart.
