True Freedom, Indeed | John 8:31-36 [Sermon Text & Audio]

July 9, 2018 @DannyScottonJr 0

Research suggests that the modern conception of freedom — our most cherished virtue — is almost purely negative (i.e., freedom *from* constraints). The Truth of Jesus gives freedom *from* (negative freedom) our rebellious nature and freedom *to* (positive freedom) fulfill our original purpose — right relationship with God. Though our culture often co-opts His words, His is the Truth that truly “will set you free.”

Sermon: Always Be Ready | 1 Pet 3:15

June 27, 2018 @DannyScottonJr 0

Peter tells us not to fear people, but to revere Christ. We are to always be ready to make a reasonable defense for our faith – a defense I believe is more convincing when supported not only with personally subjective reasons, but objectively evidential reasons. And we are to do this gently, out of reverence to God.

[Sermon] Life: Use Only As Directed | Psalm 1

June 8, 2018 @DannyScottonJr 0

Meditation: For what? To be a true fan of Jesus, fanatically imitating Christ. Meditation: Why? According to Psalm 1, we can use life as selected or life as directed. One way leads to self-destruction, the other leads to bliss. Meditation: How? By making meditation a priority concerning our time, by putting God’s word in our hearts using tools, knowing that we are in this together.
