Eternal Hope - 2 Corinthians 4:16 - 5:5

There is bad news and good news in 2 Corinthians 4:16 - 5:5. The bad news: if we put our hope in this life, we are going to be disappointed because we are not going to live forever and our hope dies with us. The good news: Jesus has purchased for us an eternal hope by what he accomplished on the cross. Jesus also provides us a down-payment for the assurance of eternal hope by sealing us with the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit and Mission

If you've been around Veritas for any length of time you heard us talk about Jesus.... a lot. Before Jesus ascended to the right hand of the father he said we need the Spirit. In fact Jesus talked about the Spirit a lot. In this series on the Holy Spirit we are hoping to repair our broken understanding of the Spirit, deal with polarizations and confusion surrounding this often overlooked person of the Godhead. We may not know everything but we do know that Jesus said that it was better that he go so that the Holy Spirit would come. We know that we were not meant to operate without the empowering work of the Spirit. Finally we want to be people of God's word empowered by his Spirit. Getting to know/rely on/worship/thank God the Spirit should be our great joy until the day Jesus returns.

Partnership in the Gospel - Standing For the Truth in Love

Brian Recker, a pastor at One Harbor Church, spoke to us from 2 Timothy 2:14-26. In this passage Paul encourages us not to put our hope in trivial things but rather to stand firm in the truth, namely the gospel of Jesus. In the wake of certain court decisions about the definition of marriage, the disintegration of a moral majority, or the stampede of secularism we should be confident that the church flourishes in times of being marginalized. Brian charged all of us as believers to do the hard work of taking our own sin seriously and living on mission for Jesus. For, the greatest threat to the church is her own hypocrisy.

Partnership in the Gospel - Seek First the Kingdom

Bryan was ordained as an elder at One Harbor Church in October 2012 after serving as a U.S. Marine. In addition to regular pastoral care, he is responsible for supervising many of their church programs, ensuring that the vision, direction and requirements set by the elders are implemented and carried out. 

Bryan preached from Matthew 6 where Jesus tells us to seek first the kingdom above all else. This may at first tempt us to increase our many reasons for being anxious, but Jesus lovingly assures us that as we carry out his mission, to make disciples of Jesus, he will take of everything else.

Did Not Our Hearts Burn - Luke 24:13-35

Guest speaker Lucas Parks, from Belfast, Northern Ireland, preached from Luke 24 about living the reality of the resurrection. If Jesus really did rise again from the grave then it changes everything! Just as Jesus opened the scriptures to the disciples and showed them all things concerning himself, so can we now see our lives in the light of Jesus who is seen clearly throughout the whole of scripture. But this begs the question, are you living in this amazing reality of a God who fulfills all of our desires or are you clinging to counterfeit saviors who will never be able to satisfy?
