  • Jesus' Ministry in Nazareth: Luke 4:14-30
    After Jesus' baptism & temptation in the desert, He returned to His hometown. And He brought them the glorious message that He was God's chosen Messiah. However, the people were hard-hearted and the message was lost on them. They refused to hear God's message & rejected it as being from God.

  • Book Corner: 31 Ways to be a 'One Another' Christian by Dr. Stuart Scott
    "Nobody reaches out to me when I go to church." "This church really isn't much of a family."
    Have you heard these kinds of comments? How sad if they are true, especially as God's Word has so much to say about how believers should interact with one another! An array of interpersonal problems between spouses, children, parents, siblings, friends, coworkers can easily develop, but if you are a Christian, you can put the Bible's message into practice and see how radically it transforms your relationships with others. By carefully examining the "one another" commands in Scripture, the authors provide a Word-based understanding of what God intends for Christian relationships - showing not only what they look like, but also how to develop them.
