Dr. Ashley Stein is a Board Certified Naturopathic Medical Doctor (NMD) in Arizona. She received her Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering at Boston University, but quickly learned that medicine is much more than surgeries and pharmaceuticals. Growing up loving both nature and medicine, she went on to attended medical school in Arizona wher…
 
The book of Ruth takes place in the dark setting of the time of the judges. Everything that could go wrong seems to go wrong. What we would expect is that every person would do what is right in their eyes, but what happens is that even in the most difficult times imaginable, an unlikely person, Ruth, chooses to show loyalty to God and His people. W…
 
Paul brings his first and deeply affirming, encouraging letter to the Thessalonians to a close. He prays that their sanctification, God’s will for them, will be finished and through at the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. And he promises them that their faithful, heavenly Father, the God of peace, will surely do it! In the midst of all the rigor of…
 
What does it look like to be a family of believers headed to forever together? That’s the question Paul is answering in this text. He’s calling the believers in Thessalonica to walk in a way that pleases God more and more. He’s told them that it’s God’s will for them to be sanctified. And as he finishes his letter, he gives them 17 commands that we…
 
How do people come to faith in Christ? How do Christians grow in Christ? One thing is central to both – the scriptures. Apart from the scriptures, apart from teaching the Word, disciples cannot be made, and teaching them cannot happen. This text shows us that Paul, Aquilla and Priscilla, and Apollos all rely on the scriptures to help non-believers …
 
Maybe your neighbor has this bumper sticker, “Coexist.” That was Athens when the Apostle Paul entered it on his second missionary journey. Athens was like a college town. Philosophy, art, politics, education, commerce, and religion were all part of the experience in the heart of the city, the marketplace. As we look into this passage, we see Paul p…
 
Christmas is proof that God is a promise maker and a promise keeper. This is the first message in a series of four for Christmas as we study some of the promises God made and kept about the coming and work of Jesus from the book of Isaiah. Isaiah 7-12 is one unit of thought, but we will study it over three sermons. In Isaiah 7:1-8:10 the big idea i…
 
At it’s best, a model is a pattern of something to be made, a design to be followed. You use a model when you want to sew a dress, construct a freeway, or build a new car. So, before you can put on that first tire, or move any earth, or cut that first length of fabric, you start with a model. Amazon is loaded with books providing churches and pasto…
 
This text is about how the gospel penetrates a new people – the Gentiles. It shows us the conversion of Cornelius, a Roman Centurion and his household. But it also shows us the conversion of Peter, the Apostle, and the Church. First, God converts Peter through a vision that His grace is enough for everyone. And when the Spirit falls on the Gentiles…
 
Most commentators say that Peter and Paul are the two most pivotal people in the book. This passage, Acts 9:1-31, is the story of Saul’s (soon to be known as Paul) conversion. His lust for stamping out Christianity has him pursuing the Christians outside of Jerusalem. But on his way to Damascus, he’s confronted by the risen Christ, converted and co…
 
At this point in Acts, the church has experienced significant growth. Thousands of people have come to faith. At the same time, the Apostles have faced significant trouble: arrests, imprisonment, questioned before the authorities, threatened, and beaten. Chapters 6-8 begin a transition of people and places. The ministry of the gospel begins to spre…
 
Jesus promised His disciples that we would be hated as He was hated. We would be mocked, misrepresented, shamed, even killed for following Him. The persecution of Christians began within days of the birth of the church, and it will continue until Jesus comes. In this text, we read about the first Christian martyr, Stephen. Not an Apostle or church …
 
In Acts 4-7, the Christians face a lot of opposition. This passage shows us how they handled that opposition, the threat of death, and a beating with heroic courage. At the same time, God proves that He is not going to let anything or anyone get in the way of the Gospel going out. He intervenes not once, but twice in this text. In the midst of it a…
 
Have you ever heard someone say, “I wish the Church would just get back to the way it was in the book of Acts!” If you have, you may be speaking with someone who’s never read the text for this sermon. There are two stories in this text. One is a picture of radical, gospel driven generosity. The other is a picture of ugly, satanically inspired hypoc…
 
If you have shared the gospel or your story of faith with many people, then you’ve run into “trouble.” Some people are antagonistic, others can be apathetic, and a few might be accepting. It seems, however, that the negative response far outweighs the positive. This is not new. Jesus faced trouble, He taught His followers to expect it, promised the…
 
After months of searching for the will of God, the church has now affirmed Brian McCoy as the new Lead Elder of Foothills Baptist Church. This is the installation service instating Brian into this new position. What are the responsibilities that accompany the office of lead elder? What priorities should he establish to serve well in this position? …
 
Acts 3 is an example of the “signs and wonders” being done at the hands of the Apostles Luke refers to in Acts 2:43. Peter and John, going to the temple see a lame man they likely have seen many times before, but this time it’s different. Peter speaks in Jesus name and the man is healed. A crowd gathers and Peter preaches his second sermon. Chapter…
 
If we were to ask 100 active Christians about their motivations for joining a specific church, we would get a wide variety of answers. Some join for the youth program, others for the music, some join for the convenient location, and others because a friend invited them. The are many reasons why people make that decision. While all of those factors …
 
Everyone experiences defining moments, times that change the trajectory of your life. The most important is the moment of your salvation! However, other defining moments may include going to college, marriage, the birth of a child, retirement, and others. One of the most crucial and life-changing moments in the life of the Church is recorded in Act…
 
“How can I know God’s will?” That is a question that we ask many times in life. What is God’s will concerning where to go to college or work? How can I know where to go to church or what house to buy? Should I do this or does God want me to do that? These are just a few of the issues that a sincere Christian will grapple with as we seek to live a l…
 
Acts is the story of the Gospel unleashed by the power of the Holy Spirit, through the people of God to the world. And Jesus teaches us that He means for that story to be continued through us. But many Christians find witnessing awkward at best, and unthinkable at worst. Perhaps that’s because we’re “giving it our best shot,” or feeling “forced” in…
 
Before a parent would die for their child, they die to self. Love is not first found in the big outward acts of dying for another person, but inwardly dying to self. Love, as demonstrated by Jesus in washing His disciple’s feet, is laying aside status and forsaking entitlement to pursue the holiness of another person. Scripture: John 13:31-35 The p…
 
The temptation to compromise our faith is enormous. Television commercials often reveal a homosexual agenda. The news carries stories about the “narrow mindedness” of Christians. Educators belittle Christian faith and values. And society, in general, is decaying into the moral abyss. What impact is this having on you? Before you say that it has not…
 
Esther is a compelling and beautifully told story in the Bible. At the same time, it’s a bit obscure for some people. The story is told with many coincidences and reversals. Perhaps most impactful is that God is not mentioned anywhere in the book. However, just because He seems to be hidden, doesn’t mean He’s absent from the story. If you read Esth…
 
Today we come to one of the most dramatic and most well-known events in the O.T. To understand Abraham, we must understand this passage. It is a one-of-a-kind story that portrays the greatest story ever told. Abraham would offer Isaac by faith and in doing so, gives us a good look at what would happen 2000+ years later on Mt. Calvary. In Genesis 22…
 
Abraham is a larger than life figure in both the Old and New Testaments. He is also called the father of our faith. What was it that made Abraham so special? Was he perfect? Far from it. Abraham had an unmistakable quality; most of the time, he trusted God even with the hard events of life. Abraham’s life is a dramatic illustration of grace. He was…
 
The most significant problem of both the Old and New Testaments is idolatry. And for that matter, the greatest problem that we face is also idolatry. Elijah was a man called by God to confront idolatry in the most convincing way. It is a story like none other. But Elijah shows us that even God’s choicest servants can suffer from profound weakness. …
 
What is it that the church has to say? We believe the message of the church is the Gospel. Paul refers to it as “the gospel of God,” “the gospel of His son,” and also “the word of the cross.” Christians are gospel people. We believe that the gospel is the message that saved us. And as followers of Christ, we obey His command to make disciples of al…
 
The idea of church membership is fading. Many churches are doing away with it altogether. Many people see it as nothing more than a bureaucratic tool for keeping track of people’s attendance and giving. In our culture spirituality has become an individual rather than community pursuit. And even “churched people” often attend more than one church at…
 
Worship is the proper response we to make to God as He comes to us clothed in His promises throughout the biblical narrative and covenantal promises, all of which culminate in the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. Christian worship, then, is Christ-centered. It is love inspired reverence, honor and glory for the One who is the eternal word that beca…
