Ruth 4:13-22 (November 13, 2022)
"As we come to a close in the book of Ruth, we want to look at the overall picture of what has happened here with Naomi and Ruth, how at the beginning we were introduced to a family in complete and utter despair, but who in their bitterness entrusted themselves to the LORD and now have seen His plan of redemption come to fruition in the birth of Ruth and Boaz son Obed."

Ruth 4:1-12 (November 06, 2022)
"In this part of the story of Ruth, we see a picture of our Advocate and our Redeemer, Jesus Christ. Who, just like Boaz, advocates on our behalf with something that we in our own human nature do not possess, that is perfect, sinless, righteousness."

Ruth 3:1-18 (October 30, 2022)
"We rejoice in the provision, protection, and personal fellowship provided to Ruth and Naomi by Boaz but acknowledge the need for the perseverance that can only come by a complete redemption. A redemption that begins taking shape as we enter into chapter three where we see the plan of redemption, the promise of redemption, and persuasion of redemption."

Ruth 2:14-23 (October 23, 2022)
"In the Old Testament kinsmen redeemer, we see this vivid picture of our Redeemer Jesus Christ through whom we have been made and who has the desire and the means of securing our redemption."

Ruth 2:8-13 (October 16, 2022)
"Ruth had left her homeland, people, and family and had sought refuge under the wings of the God of Israel, and Boaz is the practical, tangible expression of that refuge. As we look into these things, we see a profound picture of Jesus Christ who likewise initiates with people in the desire to see them come to fellowship with Him and with those in his household."

Ruth 2:1-7 (October 09, 2022)

Ruths Covenant and a Bitter Return (October 02, 2022)
"The cross of Christ, the cross we are called to carry in His name, is both Naomi and Mara, it both pleasant and bitter. It is pleasant as the forgiveness of sins for the world, it is where God has said our souls will find rest. But it is also bitter in the reality that this is what sin against the eternal God deserves, His wrath poured out on rebellion, transgress and injustice; we need to grasp that until sin is bitter, Christ will never be sweet."

The Old Nature of Sin and the New Nature in Christ (September 25, 2022)
This Sunday we are joined by guest preacher Zachary Hall who shares with us how faith in Jesus Christ, the message of the gospel, changes our essential nature.

Zachary Hall is a third-year student at Millar College of the Bible and also serves at the Chase campus of Shuswap Community Church.

Seeking a Home by Faith - Ruth 1:6-14 (September 19, 2022)
While from all exterior and visible explanation, returning home is the most logical route to go, and yet in her two daughters-in-law we see two different returns as one does indeed return home, but the other does not. She chooses instead to return with Naomi to a land foreign to her, whose people she does not know and in so doing demonstrates for us a visible picture of what it means to walk by faith and not by sight.

Sorrow Upon Sorrow - Ruth 1:1-5 (September 11, 2022)
What we see as we consider the suffering of Naomi is the sovereign hand of God at work to bring about a great salvation for his people through the birth of King David and David is going to be a shadow of the savior to come: our King, Jesus Christ.

Caring Fellowship & Families (September 04, 2022)
The family in its most basic elements is crawling with theological significance as reflections of Gods character, nature, and plan of redemption.

Compassionate Service (August 28, 2022)
...each one of us who has believed in Christ has received a gift in the Holy Spirit, and that gift is not primarily for the purpose of building up the individual but is for the purpose of building up the Body of Christ; the gift is for the purpose of serving others.

Courageous Mission (August 21, 2022)
We as a church do not support Gods mission, rather, Gods mission has a church through which He works. Gods mission is the proclamation of his Son Jesus Christ and reconciliation with Him through faith in Him. When we look at the overarching message of the bible, we see that this has been Gods mission since the beginning.

Call to Prayer (August 14, 2022)
We may be able to wrap our heads around the idea of being reconciled with God and having a restored relationship with Him because of Jesus sacrifice on our behalf and his resurrection from the dead in theory, in a transactional sense. The innocent dying for the guilty so that the guilty would be declared innocent in the sight of God. But prayer goes beyond the transactional and into the relational and transformational.

Christ-Centered Worship (August 07, 2022)
Paul usually addresses religiously Jewish people in the synagogues as he goes from town to town, but here in Acts 17:22-31 he addresses a crowd that is profoundly polytheistic. Pauls usual methods of preaching Christ wont be as impactful as they are among the Jewish people, so what is he going to emphasise? What does the Spirit lead him to address first and foremost? Worship

Commitment to the Word of God (July 31, 2022)
As much as creation can declare to us the incredibly awesome power of God, there are things that creation is unable to tell us about who God is, and in the abundance of his mercy, grace, and love, God has spoken in order to reveal his character and his works of salvation.

Why Don't Christians Obey All the Old Testament Laws? (June 16, 2022)
The law has been nailed to the cross of Christ; He has come to fulfill the law and the prophets (Matthew 5:17). We are no longer under the curse of the law, but at the same time acknowledge that the law is good (1 Timothy 1:8) and that all scripture is God-breathed (2 Timothy 3:16).

Losing Legalism for the Gain of Christ (May 01, 2022)
Legalism is a thief of joy in the Lord. It says "do" when Christ has said "it is finished". True joy is found by faith in the knowledge that my ability to stand in the presence of God with confidence is because I stand in Jesus.

Living Illustrations: Epaphroditus (April 24, 2022)
The pattern of love for others laid out by Jesus in Philippians 2 and emphasized in the Easter season is now picked up and demonstrated for us in the person of Epaphroditus. Christ is the victor who has accomplished salvation on behalf of all who believe in his name, but he is also the example by which we walk.

Salvation Received in Christ and Worked Out with Others (March 20, 2022)
When love when welcoming and when forgiveness are lacking in our relationships towards one another we have to understand that a part of the reason is that in those moments weve lost sight of the abundant love welcoming and forgiveness which we have received in Christ.

The Supremacy of Jesus Christ in Considering Others (March 14, 2022)
As the Spirit produces His fruits and as we make an effort to have the mind of considering others first by following Jesus ultimate example we must remember this critical addition that Paul made which is 'yours in Christ Jesus.' It is already yours. How is it already yours? It is only through His victory that we can hope to have this mind among ourselves at all.

The Many Joys of Communion with Christ Completed by Community (February 28, 2022)
As we begin Philippians 2 we are exhorted by God as he speaks through Paul to make His joy complete by living in unity in demonstrations of the sacrificial love which Christ exemplified laying down our own ambitions and considering others as more significant than ourselves and looking to their interests not just ours.

Standing and Striving in Salvation and Suffering (February 20, 2022)
Life as a citizen has its privileges and responsibilities so too does citizenship in the kingdom and the call is to carry ourselves in a manner that is worthy of the Gospel. To live in a way that reflects the forgiveness redemption and reconciliation that we have received in Christ.

The Labor of Love for the Glory of Christ (February 13, 2022)
Through Pauls struggle with life and death he comes out the other side of it with a conviction that he will remain and that his remaining has a purpose it is not simply for the sake of being alive but it is for others.

A Hope for the Future and Reason to Rejoice in Affliction (February 06, 2022)
What kind of deliverance should we be expecting when we experience hardships? Is it a prosperity gospel that says if you pray hard enough youll have a get out jail free card? Paul describes deliverance with a few key ideas shame and honor and life and death.

Loving the Glory of Jesus More Than Your Own (January 30, 2022)
"We are not freed by Christ to pursue our own glory but we are freed from pursuing our own glory and can fully and finally find lasting joy in Christ to the point that it doesnt matter if we are slandered so long as His glory is going forth."

Submission and Civil Disobedience: Where is the Line? (January 27, 2022)
"We are not called to 100% full unquestioning obedience to the governing authority because there are instances where that would mean disobedience to God and at the same time were not called to 100% disobedience to governing authority because that would also mean disobedience to God and what he has established. But where is the line?"

Paying the Cost of Christ for the Sake of Others (January 24, 2022)
The work that God gave Paul to do in speaking the Gospel put him in places we find undesirable i.e. prison none of us would desire to be put into a prison particularly for so unjust a reason as telling people about the love of God displayed in Jesus. Yet as Paul pays this price of proclaiming Christ he can do so with joy because He knows that even in this God is at work in others.

The Fruit of Gospel Participation (January 16, 2022)
"...the foundation of his thanksgiving and his joy in their Gospel partnership does not finally and fully rest on their achievements, but on Christís accomplishment of their faith."
