An Opportunity to Give Financially to Enhance City Light Ministry!

We are moving forward in what the Lord continues to do in and through our church! One of the needs that we have had for some time is a new audio/visual/technology system. We are now beginning to raise money for the purpose of buying a new sound system, computer, projectors, and recording equipment. Our desire is to also have a camera installed in the church so that we can ...

Leaving God's Word: Mark 7:1-8

Religion is not always a bad word. There is nothing inherently wrong with saying that one is part of the Christian religion. After all, James uses this word in 1:2627 of his epistle. However, a helpful distinction has often been made in Christianity about this word religion. In this sense, it is quite appropriate to say that Christians are not a part of a religion, but ar...

A Sad Day: Still called to sit.

The Lord still sometimes calls us just to sit as we sense something very weighty is happening and the darkness presses in. And they went to a place called Gethsemane. And he said to his disciples, "Sit here while I pray." Mark 14:32 Let him sit alone in silence when it is laid on him; Lamentations 3:28 ...

What Christ is Looking For: Mark 6:45-52 (Part I)

Discuss some of the responses to Jesus' ministry (to Jesus Himself in particular) in Mark that we have seen thus far. For example, we have seen scorn, misunderstanding, etc. What...

The Haunting Voice of Righteousness: Mark 6:14-18

We have noticed that the primary theme of Mark is that Jesus is a servant. That is, He came to serve others by His sacrificial life culminating in His death and resurrection. Yet, while He is a servant, He is also the king. He is the servant king. He came preaching about a kingdom and like every kingdom has a king, this servant is king of His kingdom. Please discuss the b...

Marveling at Unbelief Mark 6:1-6

We have noticed that many in our society are indifferent to the things of Christ. That is, one could say that they are unmoved, stiffnecked, or hard of heart. Scripture has an all encompassing word that succinctly describes all of these characteristics, unbelief. At the bottom of all indifferent hearts is unbelief. Note what Jesus said in John 6:36 and read and discuss Heb...

The Beauty of Life

Sadly, a day that has historically been set aside to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus has become, for far too many, simply a day to muster up the effort to get to church and endure a service. Many have abandoned this effort altogether seeing little benefit from getting to church maybe once or twice a year. It is absolutely impossible to get excited about the resurrecti...
