[07/08/19] The Kingdom of God has come. Praise the Lord!
So the question for tomorrow is what was Job's theodicy? How did the prime example of a good man experiencing the worst of suffering and evil view God as a a result of it? The most righteous man in the world experienced the loss of everything. He is the classic and prime example of when bad things happen to good people. Did he question God's goodness?, His power?, His knowledge? Come tomorrow morning to the Leesburg Church of Christ at Cool Spring Elementary and listen to Job's testimony. Bible study (Ezekiel 8) is at 10 AM and Worship is at 11 AM.
Theodicy is the technical term for the theological/philosophical attempt to vindicate God and to affirm His goodness in the face of human suffering, tragedy, pain, and evil. Job is the paragon of "when bad things happen to good people" (Harold Kushner). What was his theodicy? Come this Sunday, April 7th, to the Leesburg Church of Christ and see how Job responded to God in the midst of tragedy. We meet at Cool Spring Elementary in Leesburg, VA (20176). Bible study is at 10 AM (Ezekiel 8) and Worship is at 11 AM.
"Repent therefore, and turn back, that your sins may be blotted out, that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord..." (Acts 3:19-20a). Repentance is an odd but meaningful source of refreshment.
"But Peter said, “I do not possess silver and gold, but what I do have I give to you: In the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene—walk!” (Acts 3:6)
"Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved." Acts 2:46-47
Which part of this do you like the most; meeting together, breaking bread, praising God, enjoying the favor of people, or seeing people saved?
"They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer." (Acts 2:42)
Amazingly, the truth of what this verse says about baptism and salvation is misunderstood by the majority of believers in Jesus.
"Peter said to them, “Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit." (Acts 2:38)
[03/18/19] “Men of Israel, listen to these words: Jesus the Nazarene, a man attested to you by God with miracles and wonders and signs which God performed through Him in your midst, just as you yourselves know—this Man, delivered over by the predetermined plan and foreknowledge of God, you nailed to a cross by the hands of godless men and put Him to death. But God raised Him up again, putting an end to the agony of death, since it was impossible for Him to be held in its power...Therefore having been exalted to the right hand of God, and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, He has poured forth this which you both see and hear." (Acts 2:22-24, 33--The Core of the Gospel)
You can't slip anything by God. He knows it all...all of it (think about what that means in your life). Darkness is like light. Whispers are like shouts. Secrets are His daily news. Come tomorrow and hear what you should and shouldn't do about this truth that we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ. There will be no unbelievers when He returns. Join us at Cool Spring Elementary School in Leesburg at 10 AM for Sunday School and 11 AM for Worship. John 4:24
This verse is the tail end of the OT passage Peter quotes on the Day of Pentecost. "And it shall be that everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." (Acts 2:21). Acts 22:16 tells you how this call is made: "Now why do you delay? Get up and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on His name." Baptism is the moment in which the sinner calls upon the Name of Jesus (Acts 2:38) to wash his or her sins away.
"But God raised him from the dead, freeing him from the agony of death, because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on him." (Acts 2:24)
“Men of Galilee,” they said, “why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.” (Acts 1:11)
The story of Job is one of the most riveting in Scripture. It's the classic tale of a man who lost it all...except his faith in God and this, in the end, provided him with even greater blessings. Tomorrow we start his story at the Leesburg Church of Christ at 11 AM (Bible Study and Sunday School begin at 10 AM). We meet at Cool Spring Elementary School in Leesburg, VA.
What does it mean to be strong in the Lord? In David's final words to Solomon we find a key. Please join us tomorrow and find out what it is...whether you are a king or a servant, a husband or a wife, a son or a daughter, a teacher or a student, an boss/manager or an employee. This answer applies in every context.
[01/11/19] Due to Loudoun County Public School Administration cancelling all weekend activities at Loudoun County schools for both Saturday and Sunday, the Leesburg Church of Christ must cancel its normal services for this Sunday, January 13th. We anticipate being together again next week, January 20th.
For the 1st Sunday of the New Year we will be discovering the meaning(s) of "the sign of Jonah" from Luke 11. The story of Jonah is an interesting one. One of my favorites in the Old Testament. I hope you enjoy the "cartoon" version below (I hope its visually legible). We meet at 11 AM at Cool Spring Elementary School in Leesburg, VA (Sunday School for all ages begins at 10 AM).
What began as one sermon on salvation from Matthew 1:23 will end up this Sunday as a three-part mini-series. Come and join us as we put on a close on 2018 with a few of the great Bible verses about salvaiton. We meet at Cool Spring Elementary in Leesburg, VA. Bible study (for all ages) is at 10 AM and worship is at 11 AM.
From a biblical point of view, Christmas rejoices in the incarnation of God in the person we know as Jesus of Nazareth. One of the reasons the incarnation fills us with joy is because in it the salvation of our God and Father is made known. Today we will devote our time to reading some of the marvelous passages about God's salvation. Come and hear! We meet at Cool Spring Elementary School in Leesburg, VA at 11 AM (come at 10 and listen to some teaching from John 16--" These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.") Great stuff!
Is God Mr. Incredible? Check in with us tomorrow morning at 11 AM and see what Gabriel told Mary. Come at 10 AM and listen to some teaching on John 15, "I am the vine and my Father is the vine-dresser..."
Who is my neighbor? In the story of the Good Samaritan Jesus defines a neighbor not in terms of proximity but in terms of opportunity. Come and learn what that means this Sunday at Cool Spring Elementary School in Leesburg, VA at 11 AM.
What must I do to be saved? That's the question for tomorrow morning. If you're nearby, come and listen for the answer. If you don't know the answer or have been given the wrong answer you must come tomorrow and hear the truth. If you know God's answer (the only one that matters) then this will be a helpful reminder and something to share with family and friends. If your answer to the question is "Nothing" then this is a Sunday you cannot miss. Go ahead, leave the church whose preacher tells you "there's nothing you can do to be saved" and come worship with the church who will tell you exactly what God expects you to do! #heartheWord #believeinJesus #repentofyoursins #confessyourfaith #bebaptizedintoChrist #livefaithfuluntildeath
Anyone care to guess where you find Mt. Sinai in the New Testament? Come and join us tomorrow and we will scale the New Testament mount into the glory of God's presence. 11 AM at Cool Spring Elementary in Leesburg, VA. "The voice of God has thundered. The voice of God has whispered. The voice of God has spoken and is still speaking. Are you listening?"
Do we understand Christianity the way Christ did? The path of Christ was the way to the cross. Discipleship isn't any different. Following Jesus means picking up a cross you never put down until you reach eternity. Sadly, too many Christians never pick theirs up and others lay it down far too soon. That 's a preview of tomorrow's sermon. To hear the whole sermon come and join us this Sunday at 11 AM at Cool Spring Elementary School in Leesburg, Virginia. I hope to see you tomorrow.
[07/20/18] The Ministry of the Seventy(two) is filled with interesting macro and micro points. How do I chose between them? Maybe I'll just touch them all. Come and see (Sunday, 11 AM, Cool Spring Elementary School, Leesburg, VA).

What is the relationship between fear and faith? This Sunday I will preach on this from the four miracles in the second half of Luke 8. Come and join us and find out if they are friend or foe.
What role did women play in Jesus' ministry? Luke 8:1-3 has something to say about it. Come join us on Sunday morning @ Cool Spring Elementary in Leesburg, VA and hear all about it.
The day has come. The message is prepared. Come and hear about the blessing of dying in the Lord. There's no better way to go! Cool Spring Elementary School in Leesburg, VA at 11 AM. I'm looking forward to it. I hope you are, too. Come and join us.
Making final preparations for sermon on the greatest blessing anyone can ever know: "Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord." (Rev. 14:13) Everyone will die...once. This is appointed for everyone (Hebrews 9:27), but dying twice doesn't have to be. There is only one escape and His name is J-E-S-U-S.
We will celebrate this blessing this upcoming Sunday....just two days away!
One day closer to preaching about the blessing of all blessings!
This is the sermon for this coming Sunday...I can hardly wait!
Tomorrow's sermon will be on the blessing of faith and will be centered on one of the verses most often quoted within Scripture by Scripture, "And Abraham believed God and it was accounted/reckoned/credited to him as righteousness" from Galatians 3:6 and few other places. Cool Spring Elementary School in Leesburg, VA at 11:00 AM. Come at 10 AM as we study Exodus 11.
Starting a new series of sermons on the blessed life that Christians live in Christ Jesus.
[02/25/18] This Sunday is another look at what we do in worship, namely "singing" with an emphasis on the biblical tradition of a capella and a preview of the spiritual significance of singing. Singing in worship is not optional!
The opening verses of 1 John 1 are a reminder that the story of God becoming a man is not a myth. The apostle writes, "What was from the beginning, what we have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we have looked at and touched with our hands, concerning the Word of Life—and the life was manifested, and we have seen and testify and proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was manifested to us—what we have seen and heard we proclaim to you also..." This was an important reminder to second generation Christians who never did see or hear or touch Jesus. How much more important for us who are removed 2,000 years from it! The story of the Gospel, while narrative, is not fiction. John was among those, who like Adam, walked with God. We now know what our lives are suppose to look and be like; honorable, compassionate, zealous for righteousness, powerful, patient, dependent on the Father, loving, pure, humorous, relational, forgiving, serving, redemptive, just, honest, hopeful, active, dynamic; praying, proclaiming, teaching (to name a few).
Jesus lived a real life, a life worthy of us following (discipleship). Men like John (and Peter, et al) did not commit themselves unto death for a sham or a flim-flam man. Jesus is as real today (at God's right hand) as He has ever been, it's just there was a lifetime (33 years) where you could hear his voice like you do your Dad's, look onto his face like you do your wife's, and touch him like you do your children and grandchildren. That was a special time. Let us never lose sight of it
We worship God because he is worthy of it, but it is also a way for us to resist the evil in our lives and in the world around us. Come this Sunday at 11 AM and listen to what this means. This is your chance each week to gather with God's people and, with one voice, tell the devil and his world a resounding, "NO!"
[10/01/17] Is it a temple or a robber's den? Come on over tomorrow and see what Jeremiah and Jesus think. How do you view the church?
"I will open my mouth in a parable;
I will utter dark sayings from of old,
things that we have heard and known,
that our fathers have told us.
We will not hide them from their children,
but tell to the coming generation
the glorious deeds of the Lord, and his might,
and the wonders that he has done." (Psalm 78:2-4)
Generations, even in America, are losing a basic knowledge of the glorious deeds of the Lord and the wonders He has done simply because their parents have stopped going to church and have abandoned the stories their fathers told them. This is a call to stop hiding God from your children before its too late."
"Sing praise to the Lord, you His godly ones,
And give thanks to His holy name.
For His anger is but for a moment,
His favor is for a lifetime;
Weeping may last for the night,
But a shout of joy comes in the morning." (Psalm 30:4-5)
Praise God the night does pass but His favor goes with me every day.
[07/05/17] "Give, and it will be given to you. They will [w]pour into your lap a good measure—pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return.” Luke 6:38
[07/05/17] Sermon title for Sunday: The Ear Bone's connected to the..." from Luke 6:46-49.
[07/02/17] Tomorrow's sermon will be on how we should respond to the gift of freedom. Freedom always comes with responsibilities. The adult Bible study at 10 am will be on one of the quirkiest psalms in Scripture; Psalm 88.
