Sometimes we may think that generosity is something for other people to do. But the reality is that we all can give generously to the spread of the gospel. We see exactly this in Philippians 4:10-23.
What do you think of when you hear the phrase “enemies of the cross?” What are some ways believers may betray the cross with their actions? In Philippians 3:17-4:1 Paul tells us that we must deliberately pursue Christ.

Exodus 20:13 Human life is sacred. God is the Lord of life. Life must be protected. An angry hearts break the sixth commandment. Jesus is the refuge for our angry heart.
The fourth commandment is “remember the Sabbath to keep it holy”. We must keep God’s progressive revelation throughout time in mind. Pastor Kevin walks us through scripture as we study the Sabbath.
