BTM Episode 11: Ephesians 5:21-33

As we study through Ephesians, more and more people ask us to record Behind the Message.

However, we are launching a new resource to help us Ponder, Pray, and Practice the truths we’re studying from God’s Word. Whether you listen on your commute, while mowing, or watch as a conversation starter before dinner, the hope is to further normalize…

The Church Does The Work Of Ministry Through You, Not Around You

What we’re pursuing at TCBC is costly. We are calling one another to something that requires more than what many will deem to be ‘normal.’ It may feel like a higher standard, but in the light of Scripture, it is just discipleship. Let me try to explain why.  Discipleship is costly. It is death to self (Luke 14:25-33). It has been almost 100 years since Bonhoeffer penned his now famous commentary:  The cross is laid on every Christian. The first…

Walk According to His Calling

As we will see in Ephesians 4, the church is one body, uniquely gifted, each part building one another up toward the full stature of Christlikeness. I asked Laura Cabaniss to summarize our study of Ephesians 1-3 and resource us to look ahead to 4-6. Laura serves TCBC in love. One of the ways she uses her gifts to build up TCBC is by resourcing our teaching ministry. She oversees Prepare and the resource pages for our studies such as…

Disciples Of Jesus Are Not Silent

Disciples of Jesus are not silent. We are sent to proclaim the good news. “And he said to them, ‘Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation’” (Mark 16:15). View message notes from Sunday, March 24. As Easter approaches and we focus on Sending Disciples, be mindful of the opportunities in front of you to proclaim the gospel this week. Today I received the following text, “I used your my-favorite-holiday-is-Easter line. Probably the easiest time…

Promises are a Big Deal

Promises are a Big Deal Ask any child, they will tell you, promises are a big deal!  Promises are our way of communicating commitment.  If a child gets a promise from mom or dad, they know what was a “maybe” has now become “most likely.” An Example: My daughter (Lena) and I regularly pursue daddy-daughter adventures. I remember one month when she was much younger I had promised to take Lena on a special daddy-daughter date.  The plans were set for…

Called Out Of Death

Ephesians 2:1–3 [1] And you were dead in the trespasses and sins [2] in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience—[3] among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind.  Consider…

GO, No Cape Wearing Super-Christians Are Coming

Years ago I found myself teaching a course at a seminary in Southeast Asia. While there I planned to connect with a few IMB missionaries. I was early for our meeting so I waited at a table in the corner. I remember almost being nervous as I waited. These were the real deal, IMB missionaries in a life-threatening environment. They had to sacrifice many basic comforts and faced persecution, yet bravely shared Jesus to whole communities who had never before heard His name. I expected…

Study Ephesians

There are precious treasures ahead for TCBC in 2024! This Sunday we begin our 7-month, verse-by-verse study of Ephesians. This New Testament epistle is rich in doctrine and prescriptive instruction for Christian living. Notice two overarching themes. First, in Christ, we are called according to His purpose. Second, in Christ, we walk according to His calling. We have been set apart in Christ by the grace of God for his glory, therefore let us live accordingly. In order to help…

By Faith: Joshua

As we’ve been studying and preaching through Hebrews this year, we’ve seen the resounding beat of the same drum over and over: Jesus is better!We’ve looked at answers to the question– “Better than what?” He is better than the revelation of the angels and the prophets (1:1-2). He is better than the rest that Joshua could not give (4:8-10). He is better than the high priests who had to offer continual sacrifices, including for their own sins (5:3, 9-10). He…

Pray For Those Who Govern

Elder Letter by Daniel Broyles It’s late. Raven, our dog, is hiding under some furniture. The booming echoes of random fireworks bring her anxiety. I, on the other hand, find an odd sense of calm in them. It means we’re celebrating. July 4th or Independence Day is a birthday of sorts. It is a marker for the beginning of our nation, the recognition of its government and authority. Hence, we celebrate. We live in and are a part of a…

Each letter will share applied methods and answer a ‘how.’ These practices are not perfect or comprehensive. They are personal testimonies; shared knowledge and wisdom gained through pursuit and service that helped facilitate growth in our lives. We pray they help you grow as well. How do you put away obscene talk? The faithful put away obscene…

The aim is to share practical knowledge and wisdom to help us grow as doers of the word. Each letter will share applied methods and will answer…

Jesus Is Better

Who are you? It is such a simple yet profound question. How we identify ourselves is a confession of sorts. There are millions of connections, roles, achievements and failures, ideologies, and attributes by which we could describe our identity. How we define our identity gives insight to the way we see life and our place in it. The author of Hebrews writes to an audience who is practically struggling to answer this question. Rather than finding their identity in Jesus,…
