CURRENT SERMON SERIES

CONTEXT
The Scriptures are full of things that we struggle to understand. To complicate matters, sometimes in our human weakness we misinterpret some passages too. In this series, we’ll look at some common Bible passages that are frequently misunderstood and misquoted.

October 13 | Plans to Prosper You
Jeremiah 29:11
This verse from the prophet, Jeremiah, is often quoted to mean that God wants all believers to have prosperity, good health and wealth in this life. But it is written in the midst of a letter to Jewish people who were in exile from their homeland and that colors its meaning significantly.

October 20 | I Can Do All Things
Philippians 4:13
A common phrase used by athletes, this phrase seeks to give Christ credit for personal achievement or perseverance in the midst of adversity. Its real meaning was about contentment, whether living with plenty or in need.

October 27 | Ask Anything
John 14:14
This is the proverbial ‘ask for anything and you’ll get it’ saying from the Bible. It makes God out to be a virtual ‘genie in a bottle’, only with unlimited wishes. But the real meaning is a bit deeper than that.

November 3 | Judge Not Lest You Be Judged
Matthew 7:1
A classic text that seems to indicate that there is no place for passing judgment on other people. However, when taken in connection with other passages of Scripture, the issue is not judging itself but rather the context and manner in which it is done.

November 10 | Where Two or Three Gather
Matthew 18:20
This phrase is often used as a rallying cry to pray for some crisis going on in life. Get two or three Christians together and pray and God will be with you and will help you. But the truth is that Jesus isn’t talking about prayer or personal crisis at all in this verse.

November 17 | Faith is All You Need
1 John 5:4
A great old hymn was titled; Faith is the Victory. It conveyed the idea that all you had to do to win the battles of your life was to have faith. If you had faith, you would not be defeated. But does history and experience really show that to be true?

November 24 | Where There is No Vision
Proverbs 29:18
A common verse quoted regarding organizations and companies and teams. It is the language of competition and growth. Unfortunately, the word ‘vision’ is often misunderstood.
