WHO IS GOD? Many people often wonder what God is like. Have you ever asked the question of what God is like? In this video, join Andrew Chalmers, as he talks about an important attribute of God’s character that we find in the Bible. This session specifically helps to answer the question, Does God discipline us? Many people have varying views and ideas about what God is like. In order for us to really find out the truth of who God is and what he is really like, we must always go to our primary source, the Bible. In the bible we can find the answers to many of our questions we have about God. Does God discipline us? In this session, Andrew Chalmers explores Hebrews chapter 12 where it talks about God’s discipline in our lives. We discover in this chapter the truth that God not only disciplines us but also that His discipline in our lives is a sign of being His children.

What are the Covenants from the Old Testament?

November 30, 2020

Let’s explore some of the places in the bible where God makes a covenant with a person or a group of people. This bible study will primarily look at the old testament covenants. Main Points o   Covenants are a common theme throughout the whole Bible. o   A covenant is simply a way to define the terms of a relationship. It is an agreement from all parties. o   Typically, a covenant has some sort of initiation. Examples include meals, sacrifices, and ceremonies. o   From the very beginning God uses covenants, or promises, to interact with mankind. o   When God makes covenants or promises to His people, He always keeps them. o   Covenants tend to use “if/then” statements. God promises to bless His people, as long as they do as He has asked. Scriptures to Study  Genesis 9:1-17,  Genesis 17:1-8, Exodus 24:3-8, Deuteronomy 11, and 2Samuel 7:4-17 Do you have more questions about a New Covenant reality?

Melissa – YWAM Boston

“Getting to be a part of Take the City was such a blessing both in seeing how God moved in the lives of the people I met as well as how he moved in my heart. I was so encouraged to be surrounded by people willing to passionately pray for their city and the people in it. As we worshipped, people would stop and ask what was going on and we got to talk and pray with them. I felt a greater desire to pray for our nation grow in me as we sang and prayed together.”
