Confidence out of Confusion

Posted by on Apr 4, 2010 in Rev. Serven

Job 14:14, 19:25-26 April 4, 2010 Pastor Marcus J. Serven Covenant Family Church (RPCGA) Modern-day living can certainly be a confusing and confounding experience! However, there is a lesson that you can learn from one who lived long ago, that ancient man of the Bible—Job. Job had everything going for himself—family, friends, and finances. Yet, when all of these were taken away he experienced massive amounts of personal confusion, which lead to self-doubt, self-pity, and extensive soul-searching. In the midst of Job’s personal despair he asks a crucial question about life, “If a man dies,...

The 8th Commandment: You Shall not Steal

Posted by on Mar 29, 2010 in Rev. Serven

Deuteronomy 5:19 March 21 and 28, 2010 Pastor Marcus J. Serven Covenant Family Church (RPCGA) We come now to the 8th Commandment which reads, “And you shall not steal” (Deuteronomy 5:19). At the heart of this commandment is the admonition in both the Old Testament Law (Leviticus 19:18) and the New Testament Gospels (Matthew 22:37-40), that “you shall love your neighbor as yourself”. Indeed, the whole second table of the Law (Commandment’s #5-10) deals with the injunction to “love your neighbor as yourself”. Thus, it is fundamental to the Christian faith that we purpose to never steal from...

The 7th Commandment: You Shalt Not Commit Adultery

Posted by on Mar 8, 2010 in Rev. Serven

“The 7th Commandment: You Shall Not Commit Adultery” (Parts 1-2) Deuteronomy 5:18 & 1 Peter 3:1-7 March 7th and 14th, 2010 Pastor Marcus J. Serven Covenant Family Church (RPCGA) Both Christians and non-Christians alike would readily admit that the family is under attack in the world in which we currently live. Academics of a more liberal persuasion are urgently trying to redefine the family, primarily so that it can be used as a tool for rapid social change. The problem with this effort to redefine the family is that God is the one who has set the pattern and the boundaries for marriage...

The 6th Commandment and Anger

Posted by on Feb 14, 2010 in Devotional, Rev. Serven

“The 6th Commandment and Anger” Matthew 5:21-26 February 14, 2010 Pastor Marcus J. Serven Covenant Family Church (RPCGA) Our Lord takes the 6th Commandment to an entirely new level in this potent passage from the Sermon on the Mount. Whereas the Jewish Rabbis taught that the 6th Commandment was only an external standard, Jesus instructed his disciples that it was an internal standard as well. In other words, if you even contemplated murderous thoughts then you were guilty of breaking the 6th Commandment. This was a shocking development for Jesus’ disciples! So much so, that following the...
