 Passage: Romans 8:16
Methodists do not celebrate the day on which the founder of the movement, John Wesley, was born, but the day on which his heart "strangely warmed" on Aldersgate Street in London, May 24, 1738. That was the day that Wesley received the inward witness of God's Spirit assuring him that he did trust in Christ, Christ alone, for salvation; and that Christ had taken away his sins and saved him from the law of sin and death. The Witness of the Spirit became the most controversial doctrine in early Methodism. That truth, though still controversial in many theological arenas, remains at the very heart of not only Methodism but evangelical Christianity.

 Passage: Acts 2:32
Given all the difficulties of trying to explain the idea of the Holy Trinity, why do we even believe in it? The apostles gave us this conundrum as a result of their experience with God, particularly in how they encountered God in Jesus Christ. They left us a witness to not an explanation of, this mystery we call "the Trinity."
 Date: Sun, May 15, 2016       Teacher: Jon Carrell      
 Passage: Ephesians 5:18
Paul links two things in this verse that, at first glance, don't seem to go together at all-drunkenness and the infilling of the Holy Spirit. We see this same connection at Pentecost. What is going on here?

 Passage: Hebrews 7:24-25
...He is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them. Hebrews 7:25 The New Testament repeatedly reminds us that Jesus is now seated at the right hand of God, the position of divine power, where he intercedes for us.

 Passage: Ephesians 1:18
The preaching of the Apostles emphasized the ascension of Jesus Christ every bit as much as His death and resurrection, In fact, they often treat the three: the cross, the resurrection, and ascension, as one. Their message says that the One who died and was resurrected now regins as exalted Lord above everything else, Ephesians 1:18-22 is one of those passages that directly speaks of Jesus' ascension and His present position. Let's look at it and see what it says about Jesus who reigns above all.

 Passage: Romans 10:9
I've heard many plans of salvation, formulas for getting saved. Paul says it's really pretty simple: Righteousness, that is salvation itself, is a given to us as a gift from God's grace that we grasp by faith. Paul is straightforward, ...if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9 (NIV)

 Passage: Acts 11:1 & Acts 11:15
 Date: Sun, Apr 10, 2016       Teacher: James Slone      
 Passage: Luke 24:46
Jesus calls for radical repentance, in the best and basic sense of the word radical. The English word derives from the Latin redix with was the word for root. It related not only to plants and mathematics, but in a more general way to the origin and that which is fundamental to something's existence. In Scripture, repentance refers to that which is fundamental to the very existence of the gospel and those who believe it. So preaching repentance really is radical!

 Passage: Acts 5:30-31
Peter says that the resurrection of Jesus Christ brought about repentance and forgiveness of sins (Acts 5:30-31). I wasn't surprised that forgiveness was a result of the resurrection, but repentance? I'd always thought repentance was our job, pretty much a human effort, and Jesus' job was to forgive.
