King Asa: Failing at the Finish Line


Speaker: Mark Petersburg

Summary: Asa began his reign in Judah with such great promise. “He did what was good and right in the eyes of the LORD his God.” Unfortunately and sadly, he didn’t finish the same way. His life is an example and a caution to us on finishing the race strong.

King Asa: Strong Out of the Starting Block


Speaker: Mark Petersburg

Summary: Asa followed his father as king over Judah, the two southern tribes of Israel. From his life and reign in these early years, we draw two important application principles: we need to diligently maintain a cutting edge in our faith lives, and God delights in manifesting his power through our weakness.

Things We Know


Speaker: Mark Petersburg

Passage: 1 John 5:6–5:21

Summary: The culture and climate of our day seems to frown upon “certainty.” It’s viewed as arrogance or presumption. But as biblical people we should not be afraid to declare that there are some things we know, we really know. In the last chapter of the Apostle John’s first epistle in the New Testament, he shares four things we can and should know for certain: God has given us eternal life, God answers prayer, God protects his own, and Christian faith is true reality.

The Spirit of Truth and the Spirit of Error


Speaker: Mark Petersburg

Passage: 1 John 3:23–4:6

Summary: The Apostle John concerns himself in his New Testament letter with how to tell the counterfeit from the real. Though he might use different words if he was writing to 21st century readers, his message would be the same: Either Jesus was who he said he was (God in the flesh) or else he was an imposter, a counterfeit, a liar.
