18 October A.D. 2020 Deuteronomy 4:41-49 – Evening (Rev. Michael Grasso)

Understanding the law can be difficult, but it remains an important part of the Christian’s life.  In this passage in Deuteronomy 4:41-49, cities of refuge are established east of the Jordan and the law is introduced.  This transitional passage, wrapping up the historical review section and preparing for the giving of the law, teaches important aspects about the law of God for the Christian.

18 October A.D. 2020 1st Peter 4:1-6 – Morning (Rev. Michael Grasso)

Part of the suffering a Christian is called to comes from living a godly life that the world disdains.  As Christians live lives differently than unbelievers, unbelievers will often put pressure on Christians to give up their convictions.  How can a Christian have the strength to stand firm when faced with such opposition? In 1 Peter 4:1-6, this question is addressed.  The realities of the gospel provide the foundation for courageous living in a hostile world.
