    God's Promises Regarding COVID-19

    May 15, 2020 by Forward Baptist
    This week, when my wife Becky went grocery shopping, she had a brief conversation with the cashier, which started started off being about the amount of coffee she was buying.  As Becky explained that she was shopping for our church’s food bank, the cashier said that she also went to church and that every day before work, she read Psalm 91 as a reminder of God’s protection.

    Son of God Part 3

    What does it mean that Jesus is the Son of God? Part 3 February 29, 2020 by Forward Baptist
    We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
    the only Son of God,
    eternally begotten of the Father,
    God from God, Light from Light,
    true God from true God,
    begotten, not made,
    of one being with the Father.

    What does it mean that Jesus is the Son of God? Part 2 February 29, 2020 by Forward Baptist

    I will proclaim the Lord’s decree: He said to me, “You are my son;  today I have become your father. (Psalm 2:7, NIV)

    Son of God Part 1

    What does it mean that Jesus is the Son of God? Part 1 February 29, 2020 Pastor Steve Lambert
    Hebrews 1 speaks of Jesus being “appointed heir of all things” and becoming superior to the angels. That doesn’t sound like he’s fully divine, equal with his Father, it sounds like he became God’s Son at some point in the past.  I knew that was theologically incorrect, but no one ever explained that to me, and I didn’t know how to explain it, so I was scared of these verses.

    The Word of the Year

    December 11, 2019 Pastor Steve Lambert
    At the end of every year, dictionary websites choose a word that they feel best represents the year that is ending.  They then name that word the word of the year. For 2019, chose the word ‘existential’.

    The Story of the Bible

    November 3, 2019 Pastor Steve Lambert

    Whenever you read a book, you have to take into consideration what kind of book it is.  You don’t read all kinds of books the same way. The kind of book you are reading determines how you read it.  So what kind of book is the Bible?

    Prophecies of Jesus

    September 1, 2019 Pastor Steve Lambert

    The writers of the New Testament point out over and over how Jesus fulfilled Old Testament prophecies in His birth, His life, His death, and His resurrection.  But if you have ever looked up the prophecies that Jesus fulfilled, you may have found yourself confused. Sometimes these prophecies aren’t prophecies in the way we expect...

    Entering the Psalms

    July 28, 2019 Pastor Steve Lambert
    The Psalms teach us how to come to God in prayer, but they can be very confusing for many Christians.  Many of the Psalms seem like complaining (these are called lament psalms). Others ask God to destroy our enemies (these are known as imprecatory psalms).  Surely God doesn’t want us to pray that way, does He?

    Prayers of Doubt

    July 15, 2019 Pastor Steve Lambert
    What does faith look like in the face of doubt and despair?  How do we pray when we aren’t sure that God is listening or that He cares?  Most of us don’t know how to answer those questions. We find them awkward and disturbing.  We like to think, or to pretend that Christians don’t ever feel that way. But those reactions to doubt and despair aren’t realistic, they aren’t helpful.  Thankfully, they aren’t biblical either!
