Ephesians 5:25-31 – In the world, love is a word that has lost its deep significance. The Bible uses the term love to denote unconditional, and inexhaustible sacrifice. Eugene helps us understand what God calls love, how He demonstrates it to us through Christ, and how He calls every husband to display this love both to his wife and to his family.
Luke 2:13-14 – All earthly gifts will one day become old, worn out, or unattractive. God’s gift of Jesus Christ is valuable not only here on earth but also for all of eternity. Eugene reminds us that we need to be so grateful for Christ and cling to Jesus, not because He has given us heaven, peace and eternal life, but because He has given us Himself: the best Gift of all.
Song of Solomon 8:8-10 – In this sermon, Eugene speaks about how parents and the church are responsible for the protection, raising, and preparing children for a godly life and fruitful marriage. The moral strength of each child is contingent upon the strength and example that he or she is given. Let’s be a healthy example to this next generation!
Ecclesiastes 2 – In a world where success in life is based on wealth, achievement and fulfilling your own dreams, we learn from the life of Solomon that a full life is not found in the emptiness of seeking pleasures, alcohol, acquiring treasures, or being a humanitarian. True happiness is found in a relationship with God. Discover this happiness as Eugene uncovers the treasure of a life lived for God.
1 John 2:14b – Many people wear masks pretending to look better and feel better than they really are. As the world is full of bad examples that Christians should not follow, we need to stay close to God’s Word and His Son, who helps us in the fight to be leaders, pure, holy, and an example to the rest of the Church and world. This message preached to young men has benefit for all, as it calls us to stop pretending, get real and really put first the priority of God’s Word in our lives.
1 John 2:14 – One’s attitude toward God’s Word tells much about a person. Often people run from it because they are afraid that it will expose sin, but it is only trying to keep them from danger. As healthy believers, we need to be feeding on His Word and not the food from this world. Eugene helps us renew the importance of studying, memorizing and treasuring God’s Words to us.
Matthew 2:2 – Motivation fuels our actions and reveal our hearts desire. Men naturally like the easy road with little risk and low cost, but like the wise men who went searching for Jesus, we must be willing to set aside our laziness, selfishness and follow hard after Christ. What are you willing to pay for such a treasure as Jesus? Eugene helps us explore the narrow, difficult but rewarding path to finding true treasure in this life.
Deuteronomy 6 – The family forms the building blocks for a philosophy of life. It is the priority of parents to build a strong foundation for future generations, but living in such a busy society, we often sacrifice the things that are truly important for what is urgent or fleeting. Eugene outlines this famous passage by admonishing parents to be faithful to teach their children the Word of God: 1) The family must be a tool for God’s ministry; 2) The Father’s priority of godly leadership; 3) Systematic and faithful studying of the Bible.
“If the family does not study the Word and serve the Lord, the Church will not study the Word and serve the Lord, because the Church is a family which includes many families.”
1 Thess 4:3-8 – God’s will for the believer is to keep himself sexual pure, and He gives us the tools to do this in the Bible. God doesn’t want to deprive us of pleasure and intimate relationships. He wants to bless us and use us for Нis service, but we need to be vessels fit for service. Our bodies need controlling. If we do not take action to control them, they will control us.
True Christian purity is attacked by the modern world from various angles. In this message, Believers learn what part they can play to win the battle over lust and impurity between men and women. 1) Don’t isolate yourselves from others or spend time alone. 2) Don’t touch each other with impure intention. 3) Be careful with your words and compliments; don’t flatter unnecessarily. 4) Avoid innuendo and bodily flirtation. 5) Pay attention to your own spiritual state, and love. Win temptation with God’s power and for His glory. Be holy and be blessed!
