Speaker: Will Galkin - The moral argument begins with the fact that all people recognize some moral code (that some things are right, and some things are wrong). We sense this most when injustice happens to us or we are stirred injustice of others. Every time we argue over right and wrong we appeal to a higher law that we assume everyone is aware of, holds to, and is not free to arbitrarily change. Right and wrong imply higher standard or law, a law requires a lawgiver. Because the Moral Law transcends humanity, this universal law requires a universal lawgiver. This, it is argued, is God. http://www.reasonablefaith.org/moral

Speaker: Will Galkin - While there are a number of arguments for the existence of God, we are going to look at the Kalam Cosmological Argument for God. Do not be put off by the name. In fact, you probably don’t even want to use that name when talking to other people. The foundation of this argument comes at us on the commonsense level. “It is based on an instinct of mind that we all share: the instinct that says everything needs an explanation. Nothing just is without a reason why it is. Everything that is has some adequate or sufficient reason why it is.” So what is the Kalam Cosmological Argument? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6CulBuMCLg0&feature=youtu.be

Speaker: Will Galkin - We are gathered together as a church because we believe that Jesus Christ is God the Son. We believe that Jesus Christ walked this earth 2000 years ago, was crucified and was raised from the dead. We believe that Jesus sits at the right hand of the throne of God and as Lord will judge the World. This is countercultural! Everything about Jesus Christ runs contrary to the naturalism, materialism, individualism and inclusivism of our present age. The faithful Christian should not be surprised by the pushback of the culture but rather expect it. So be prepared as 1 Peter 3:15 exhorts us, “always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you.”
Jonah

Speaker: Will Galkin - Do you know and believe that God loves each of us so much that He brings circumstances into our lives to show us our idols? He actually allows difficulties in our lives that reveal our wrong thinking about Him and ourselves. He uses situations to showcase our insecurities and our need for Him. But let’s be honest we don’t always like it! We get frustrated and so we run. We are irritated so we attempt to hide. We withdraw and sulk in our self-pity. We are filled with self-righteousness and sit in judgment of God. But God finds us and specifically reveals our shortcomings and meets us with His grace. His mercy is there for any that make a movement toward Him. God is showcasing His desire to save the lives of all of the main players in the book of Jonah. He wants to save the sailors, the Ninevites, and the prophet. So don’t you think that God wants to save you?

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.

Speaker: Will Galkin - Messengers from heaven brought news that caused humble people to quake in awe and fear, but ultimately these messengers brought good news of God’s love. What is this good news? It is that the Love of God was born in the flesh. Jesus would live a perfect life and die as the perfect sacrifice. So this Christmas, rather than just celebrating a cultural holiday we need to 1) Understand the love of God that is being revealed and 2) Receive the love of God that is being offered.

Speaker: Will Galkin - Paul’s expresses his love for the church of Philippi throughout the epistle that he sent them. His time with this church must have been sweet. Yet, since his last visit, strife had broken out among the believers. This is why Paul in Philippians 1 reminds the members of this church of his own hardships for the gospel. He shared that some who claimed the name of Christ were actually preaching Christ out of rivalry. But this did not slow down Paul from living worthy of the gospel. Throughout the book Paul offers himself as a joyful example of Christian maturity. The idea is that the Philippian believers should live just as Paul lived. Philippians 1:27 exhorts the believers to live worthy of the Gospel. Later, in Philippians 2:1-11 Paul encourages the believers to live worthy of the gospel by allowing the humility of Christ to guide all of their interactions with others. In Philippians 2:12-18, Paul reminds them of their dependent responsibility to work out their own salvation so that the lost would see Christ in them.
Proverbs

Speaker: Will Galkin - Proverbs is an immensely practical collection of Scripture. The book of Proverbs brings up all sorts of “everyday stuff” and calls us to live in a manner that is wise. Wisdom is the ability to make the right choice, right now. Yet, sometimes we can find ourselves discouraged by our lack of growth in wisdom. Thankfully, God loves us and exhorts us to be wise through His gentle yet firm discipline. The author of Hebrews 12:5-11 quotes Proverbs 3:11-12 and reminds his readers that God has a plan for His discipline in our lives. May we response correctly to the discipline of our Father so that, “When you walk, your step will not be hampered, and if you run, you will not stumble.”

Speaker: Will Galkin - How many times does a Christian have to be rejected until they stop sharing their faith? Have you noticed that It does not take much opposition to cause believers to question if the Message of Christ is Sufficient for our Pluralistic Society? Being a real Christian in western culture is not becoming easier. To be an outspoken Christian is frowned upon. Preaching the exclusivity of Christ is the quickest way to be labeled intolerant and a bigot. Many Christians are tempted to question if a life of intentional ministry is worth all of the trials and hardships that come with it. Is the Message of Christ sufficient for today? How are we to live a life of ministry in a culture that redefines truth, undermines Scriptural authority and challenges everything? How do we communicate the sufficiency of Christ to our culture? Thankfully, God gave us the Apostle Paul for an example. Paul faced many afflictions for the Gospel. In 2 Corinthians 11, Paul recounts his imprisonments, beatings, shipwrecks, hunger, sleepless nights, and the constant pressure regarding the health of the churches. On top of all this, false teachers were incessantly opposing him. Some had apparently come into the church of Corinth and attacked Paul by saying he was weak, dishonest, and a corrupter of God’s Word. If anyone had an earthly reason to give up and lose heart, it was Paul. His response was not to commend himself but rather remind the Corinthian believers of what God had done in their lives. He then let their testimony stand as a letter of recommendation commending the authenticity of His ministry. With this backdrop, Paul in 2 Cor. 4 declares what true ministry should look like in the midst of a hostile environment. He reminds us that the message of Christ is sufficient.
