Study & Share Sermon Blog

This is Pastor Jared's weekly sermon info and his weekly Study and Share devotional Bible study. Unless otherwise noted all sermons and studies are copyright Jared Stillions 2020-2023. The devotional Bible studies may be reproduced & shared for personal, non-sale use, provided this copyright notice is included. The studies are formatted two to a page to make sharing it easier. Weekly posts go live at 9:00 AM on Sundays. 

You can find his sermon podcast on the sermon-cast page. Check back each Sunday for new content. The podcast will soon be listed with major services. 
Why not put them on the same page? Due to limitations of our website builder.

By the way, here's the Lutheran Confessions, The Book of Concord, online and in the public domain. These writings, including Luther's Small & Large Catechisms are frequently referenced in these devotional studies. The Confessions are the historic doctrinal standard of the Lutheran Church and a faithful exposition of the Bible. You could say they are squared, leveled, and plumb by and to the Bible itself.

...#2 Consider Hosea 12:3-5 (also Exodus 4:24-26); Luke 12:27-34, 13:24; 1 Corinthians 12:27--13:1 (13:2-8), 14:1; Colossians 4:12; 2 Peter 3:15; see also Isaiah 45:9. How is Jacob’s wrestling match, striving with God, a model for us? What warning does Isaiah give? What do 1Corinthians 9:24-27; 2 Corinthians 11:21-28 1 Timothy 1:18, 6:12; 2 Timothy 4:7 add?

...#2 What connections do you find between Ruth & Luke 17:11-19? Remember Ruth is a foreigner/Moabite (descended from Lot; see Genesis 19:30-38, Deuteronomy 2:9). Consider especially Ruth 1:15-17 & Luke 1:15-19. What does 2 Timothy 2:8-15 add (esp. vv11-13)?

...#4 St. Paul is “in chains” in Rome (v16; cf. Acts 25-28, esp. 25:1-12, 28:11-30, also 23:23-35), a rather embarrassing truth for early Christians. Nonetheless, Paul encourages boldness with the Gospel (v7; Romans 5:3-5, 8:15, 10:13-17; 2 Corinthians 3;13; Ephesians 3:12, 6:19-20; Philippians 1:14, 20, 3:10; also 1 John 4:18). List at least 10 concrete circumstances in your everyday life right now where you need more boldness for the gospel & then pray for it.
