Wealth and Worship - (Sermon on the Mount)
Jesus speaks more on the issue of money/wealth than any other issue in the Bible. Here, in his iconic Sermon on the Mount, he once again renovates our understanding of how God determines blessed and righteous living versus cursed and sinful living, all in regards to the wealth have and how you see it. Preacher: Rand Cho Passages: Matthew 6:19-6:34 saviorcommunity.com

BIBLE LECTURE - Understanding Israel: The Mosaic, Davidic, and New Covenant (Part 3)

When No One Sees You Worship - (Sermon on the Mount)
Jesus revealed to us that even when we refrain from doing wrong, that does not mean we are in the right. And now he tells us that even when we do what's right, it does not mean we are doing it rightly. Once again, God's standard of righteousness is higher than man's, as He inspects our hearts, not just our deeds. Preacher: Rand Cho Passages: Matthew 6:1-9:15 saviorcommunity.com
55:31
August 4, 2020
BIBLE LECTURE - Understanding Israel: The Abrahamic Covenant (Part 2)
Beginning with the covenant to Abraham, God proves that He fulfills His promises just the way that He says them. The question is whether or not that promise has been fully fulfilled yet, either for ethnic Israel or instead for the Church.  Preacher: Rand Cho Passages: Genesis 12:1-28:15 saviorcommunity.com

You Must Be Perfect - (Sermon on the Mount)
Just as Jesus has recovered the truth behind who is blessed, he moves on to recover the truth behind who is righteous. To no surprise, righteousness is only truly righteous if you are perfect; but it's not the perfection the Jews were thinking. Preacher: Rand Cho Passages: Matthew 5:17-48 saviorcommunity.com

BIBLE LECTURE - Understanding Israel: Positions on the Millennial Kingdom (Part 1)
The Old Testament seems to be about Israel.  The New Testament seems to be about the Church.  Are they same?  Are they different?  What is their involvement with each other?  Which one(s) is God’s covenant people? These theological questions determine your outlook on what God said in the beginning, what He's doing now in the middle, and how He'll bring things to the prophesied end. Preacher: Rand Cho  Passages: Revelation 20:1-7 saviorcommunity.com

Who's Doing the Blessing? - (Sermon on the Mount)
Matthew 5-7 comprise what is arguably Jesus' greatest sermon ever given, encompassing just about every issue of life in some form or fashion. His opening statement, then, comes at no surprise to be both a challenge to our natural instincts of how to approach God, as well as a heralding of gospel faith by trusting only in Christ. Preacher: Rand Cho Passages: Matthew 5:1-12 saviorcommunity.com

Worshiping in Hardship
In a season of constant difficulty, we're called to have confidence in the Lord. But how? King David shows us that confidence in the Lord is found when the worshipper seeks out and gazes upon the beauty of the Lord Preacher: Howard Kim (Lifestream Christian Reformed Church) Passage: Psalm 27:1-5 saviorcommunity.com

The Triumph of God's Glory - (Isaiah)
Isaiah's final chapters explain how God intends to consummate His plan of redemption for mankind by restoring Israel and removing the curse of sin. These are haunting words of warning to God's wayward people, and yet also matchless words of hope for them and (by God's grace) also for the Church today. Preacher: Rand Cho  Passages: Isaiah 58:1-66:24 saviorcommunity.com

Suffering to Glory
How do we as Christians suffer well? In light of current suffering, Paul puts before believers their future glory in order to help them endure faithfully today. We as believers need to face the reality of suffering in the present age and examine if and why we think it's worth it. Preacher: Patrick Cho Passages: Romans 8:18-30 saviorcommunity.com

June 27, 2020
The Plan of God's Salvation - (Isaiah)
Isaiah writes about the spiritual relationship between God and man that is and will continue to be true all the way until the return of Jesus Christ.  The purpose of this entire book is captured in the ideas held in these chapters, as Scripture has always been given for us to understand how to respond to God's holy judgment and loving grace.  Chapter 53 will be dealt with separately and specifically in the next installment. Preacher: Rand Cho Passages: Isaiah 49:1-57:13 saviorcommunity.com

June 17, 2020
The Comfort for God's Exiles - (Isaiah)
Isaiah prophetically speaks comfort to the Israelites who will be living in exile 150 years after he is dead. The foreknowledge and sovereignty of God are put on stark display as the Lord assures His people that His plan was always to love and save for their sake and for His glory. Preacher: Rand Cho Passages: Isaiah 40:1-48:22 saviorcommunity.com
54:46
June 8, 2020
The King and God’s Prophet - (Isaiah)
The menace of the Assyrian threat comes to a conclusion and a new threat is introduced in the transitional chapters 36-39.  Through the conversations between king Hezekiah and the prophet Isaiah, the history depicts a spiritual lesson regarding faith and folly.  This concludes the portion of the book that addresses events that took place during the prophet's lifetime. Preacher: Rand Cho Passages: Isaiah 36:1-38:8 saviorcommunity.com
1:04:02
June 2, 2020
The Sound of God's Lament - (Isaiah)
Isaiah had already declared 6 "woes" in chapter 5, and God Himself now declares 6 more.  Each woe exposes a wayward faith inside the heart of man and a grieving lament in the heart of God. Preacher: Rand Cho Passages: Isaiah 28:1-35:10 saviorcommunity.com
55:37
May 26, 2020
The End of God's Enemies - (Isaiah)
God has declared judgment upon His guilty people.  But what of the other nations?  What will God do with godless nations that have long stood as enemies of the Lord?  And if He declares judgment on them as well, will He also extend the same hope of salvation as He does to undeserving Judah? Preacher: Rand Cho Passages: Isaiah 13:1-27:13 saviorcommunity.com
59:10
May 18, 2020
The Judgement on God's People - (Isaiah)
God's people (Israel and Judah) have rebelled, and God has chosen to use a godless people (Assyria) to judge them.  Where is the hope when the enemies of God carry out God's will upon the people of God who defy it? Preacher: Rand Cho Passages: Isaiah 6:1-8, Isa 7:1-2, 4, 8-17, Isa 8:13-15, Isa 9:2, 6-7, 12-19, Isa 10:1-4, 10-12, 20-23, Isa 11:1-9, 12, Isa 12:1-5 saviorcommunity.com

May 11, 2020
The Guilt of God's People - (Isaiah)
In the Old Testament, God had opinions about how His people lived.  What did He get upset about?  What outraged Him to the point of promising judgment?  How does that inform us as His people today? Preacher: Rand Cho Passages: Isaiah 1:1-4, 7, 16-24, 27-28, Isaiah 2:1-5, Isaiah 3:1-5, 8-9, 13-24, Isaiah 4:2-3, Jeremiah 23:5, 33:15, Isaiah 5:1-2, 7-8, 11, 18, 20-25 saviorcommunity.com

Hearing God's Voice - (Peace Amidst Pandemic)
What is the difference between faith in the Bible and faith in Jesus?  What is the difference between reading God's Word and hearing God's voice?  And, of course, how can a Christian learn to know God's will for his/her life?

Desperate for Treasure - (Peace Amidst Pandemic)
Throughout the gospels, various people came to Jesus asking to follow him.  Some he received warmly, many he warned, and others he outright rejected.  What was the basis for his response?  Of those types of people, which one describes you?

Worship Without a Temple - (Peace Amidst Pandemic)
First-century Jews that became Christians no longer worshiped at a temple.  It must have been a startling adjustment to have lost their gathering place.  Perhaps we can relate during this time of self-isolation and quarantine during the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. Preacher: Rand Cho Passages: John 1:14, Hebrews 4:14-16, Hebrews 9:11-14, Hebrews 10:11-14, 1 Corinthians 3:16-17, 1 Peter 2:4-5, Romans 12:1 saviorcommunity.com

How to Pray Supernaturally
Why does prayer feel at times mechanical, cold, and burdensome when the Bible describes it as a personal and intimate interaction with God? How we are to experience prayer supernaturally is primarily on the basis of our relationship with God through Christ's atoning work. Preacher: Patrick Cho Passages: Matthew 6:7–9, Psalm 27:4, Romans 8:15–16 saviorcommunity.com

March 9, 2020
How to Read the Bible Supernaturally
Believers are described in Scripture to love the Bible for it is God's holy Word, but at the same time most of us can read it diligently or intellectually without passion or transformation. How does one read God's Word as He truly intended it to be read, as a supernatural experience to see the glory of Jesus Christ?

Baptism – The Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit
When Jesus commissioned us to "make disciples of all nations," he included in that the process of "baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit."  Why do these three share one name?  What is that name?  Why do we baptize in it?
