    May 19, 2019 – Celebration and Worship Generated by the Scripture by Dr. Glenn Jago

    by COD

    Amid the growth of secular truth claims, the motivation for godly living is becoming more of a battleground than times in the past. The aptitude toward knowing the right from wrong, according to God’s standard, is dead, and the convictions acquired from the Scriptures appear oppressive. Unfortunately, pressure begins to mount against the believer to abandon their beliefs. Consequently, worship begins to exalt the individual rather than Jesus Christ. In our time, the fashionable trend among Christendom is to celebrate the Exceptional You as it worships human sovereignty rather than Christ’s sovereignty.

    May 12, 2019 – Commending the Messiah as King and Priest by Dr. Glenn Jago

    by COD

    The reality of the work of the long-awaited Messiah has dramatic outcomes in every aspect of the believer’s life. In times of joy and prosperity, Jesus Christ is the provider. In times of pain and sorrow, Jesus Christ is the protection and answer. In times of doubts, fears, and apprehensions, Jesus Christ is the rock that never crumbles. Compellingly, as Jesus Christ is the central figure in Scripture, He is also the central figure for the believer’s identification in thought, attitude, word, and action. Indeed, the splendor of our life is only because of Jesus Christ. However, who He is and why He is so prominent are questions seeking answers.

    May 5, 2019 – Counteracting Hardship with God’s Faithfulness by Dr. Glenn Jago

    by COD

Indeed, multiple disrupters in the world and the church are capable of taking your commitment to Christ off course and drive you into despair. The question of what you pursue to counter those adverse interruptions and distractions reveals the passions of your heart. Each person has many options within their culture to gain relief. Those options may consist of sports, music, money, friends, spouse, social media, and much more. The problem is, they never satisfy or bring relief.

    April 28, 2019 – Celebrating the Lord in Corporate Worship by Dr. Glenn Jago

    by COD

    The Scriptures do not regard worship as a man-centered or need- based response, but as believers so overwhelmed by the glory and character of God that worship naturally takes place. The only reason we can worship God and Jesus Christ is by the sacrifice of Jesus Christ and the control of the Holy Spirit making our worship acceptable to God.
