  • The Theme of the Book (Week 1)

    09/01/2022 Duración: 39min

    A popular acronym to understand the theme of the Bible is Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth. But though the Bible does contain plenty of instruction, instruction is not its primary theme. Jesus is. Paul speaks of how the Scriptures are able to make us “wise for salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.” If we miss Jesus, we miss the main point of the Bible.

  • We Need a Little Change (Week 5)

    27/12/2021 Duración: 21min

    See our Christmas Lineup! Most people make New Year’s resolutions because they want to make a change in their life. But sometimes we don’t choose change. Instead, it chooses us. Joseph and Mary planned to raise Jesus in Bethlehem. But then, because of a murderous plot of a mad king, they had to first flee to Egypt and then settle in Nazareth. Sometimes, the changes we most don’t want to make are the changes that do us the most good.

  • We Need a Little Sign (Week 4)

    25/12/2021 Duración: 20min

    See our Christmas Lineup! Have you ever asked for a sign from God? Usually, when we ask for a sign from God it’s because we want something fixed by God. But God has already given us His ultimate sign – a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger. God may not always give us signs that shock and amaze, but He has given us the sign we most need in His Son.

  • We Need a Little Peace (Week 3)

    19/12/2021 Duración: 33min

    See our Christmas Lineup! The stresses of the holiday season and life in general can sap our peace. There are stresses that circumstances foist upon us and there are stresses that we bring on ourselves through our own decisions. When the disciples are caught in a storm, life has foisted stress on them but their reaction only exacerbates their stress. Jesus steps into all the stress with His peace.

  • We Need a Little Patience

    12/12/2021 Duración: 27min

    See our Christmas Lineup! Christmas demands patience. From traffic jams to long lines at stores to, now, slow delivery service because of supply chain interruptions, we need patience now more than ever. In Luke 2, we meet a man named Simeon who had been waiting for decades to see the Messiah. He patience was rewarded. In a society that obsesses over quickness, a little patience can do our souls well.

  • We Need a Little Restoration

    05/12/2021 Duración: 27min

    See our Christmas Lineup! With all that we have been through, our souls can feel shriveled at times. In Matthew 12, Jesus restores a man with a shriveled hand. What He did for this man physically, He can do for us spiritually.

  • Stories of Christmas

    28/11/2021 Duración: 16min

    See our Christmas Lineup! Enjoy hearing the origin story of some of your favorite Christmas songs and carols, along with with a devotion from Pastor Paul!

  • Grumbling to Gratitude (Week 2)

    21/11/2021 Duración: 29min

    Contentment is great! Gratitude is even better, for gratitude is not only happy with what it has – as nine of the lepers healed by Jesus were – but actively thankful for what it has. In this way, gratitude blesses others because gratitude is an expression of contentment and fulfillment.

  • Grumbling to Gratitude (Week 1)

    14/11/2021 Duración: 31min

    Join a Concordia Group! The Israelites were wildly blessed by God while wandering through the wilderness – but, for them, it was never enough. Grumbling misses the blessings God gives. The first step out of the trap of grumbling is contentment.

  • Through You: Work and Stewardship (Week 3)

    07/11/2021 Duración: 33min

    Join a Concordia Group! David refused to even drink water if the water was a product of someone else work and risk. David wanted to work for what he had. Part of stewardship is working for what we have so we can share what we have. Are we more interesting in working or taking?

  • Through You: Sacrifice and Stewardship (Week 2)

    31/10/2021 Duración: 43min

    Join a Concordia Group! Joseph was entrusted with a huge estate. But things quickly turned sour when he was falsely accused of mismanaging what he had been given. How can we be faithful with what God has given us, even when being faithful means sacrificing like Joseph?

  • Through You: Designed for Stewardship (Week 1)

    24/10/2021 Duración: 34min

    Join a Concordia Group! From the very beginning of history, God entrusted people with the responsibility of taking care of His world. What you have is still part of His world. Are you cultivating what God has given you or wasting or hoarding it?

  • Faith and Family: Family in Faith (Week 6)

    17/10/2021 Duración: 33min

    Join a Concordia Group! One of the hardest challenges families face is when they are divided over faith. Jesus’ own family struggled to believe in Him! But when we hold on to our faith, our household becomes divided against Satan. And, as Jesus reminds us, a house divided cannot stand. There is hope for your family members who are outside the faith!

  • Faith and Family: Priorities (Week 5)

    10/10/2021 Duración: 44min

    Join a Concordia Group! Some of the hardest sayings of Jesus have to do with family. Jesus called twelve men away from their families to be His disciples. Jesus challengingly invites us to remember that, as important as family is, family without Him is idolatry and will only lead to pain.

  • Faith and Family: Family With Faith (Week 4)

    03/10/2021 Duración: 43min

    Join a Concordia Group! Every family encounters problems and conflicts. Before Isaac and Rebekah even have children, God promises their sons will fight with each other. Looking at our family through the eyes of faith – through how Jesus sees them – can help us navigate the short-term conflicts with a larger goal in mind.

  • Faith and Family: Family By Faith (Week 3)

    26/09/2021 Duración: 43min

    Join a Concordia Group! We will often speak of our “friends and family.” There are some friends who are like family (Proverbs 18:24). Paul talks about how we are part of Christ’s family by faith in Galatians 3. When our own family fails us, we have a larger family that extends through space and time.

  • Faith and Family: Family Outside Faith (Week 2)

    19/09/2021 Duración: 39min

    A family apart from faith can attempt some spectacular things, as does the human family in Genesis 11 when they build the tower of Babel. But our success will only be temporary. Each family must ask: what is most important?

  • Faith and Family: White Picket Fence (Week 1)

    12/09/2021 Duración: 32min

    When God created Adam and Eve, He created history’s first family. He also placed them in an idyllic setting. Their yard was perfect. But Adam and Eve’s sin stained not only their family, but the whole human family. The white picket fence was replaced by a flaming sword to keep Adam and Eve out of the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3:24). But in the middle of this mess, God promises a descendant who will restore their family. What our family needs most of all is not a white picket fence, but a cross.

  • Work That Works

    05/09/2021 Duración: 31min

    When God is putting forth plans for the building of the tabernacle, He gives people the talents to do the work He needs. God has given us talents, too. How we steward our talents will guide how we feel about our work. Work can be a burden. But when we steward our talents well, work can also be a gift.

  • Deuteronomy: A Lasting Legacy (Week 12)

    29/08/2021 Duración: 38min

    Moses dies before Israel enters the Promised Land. But Moses leaves a lasting legacy. He had a special, close relationship with God that ultimately foreshadows Christ’s perfect relationship with God.
