TCH Bible Study

Image
What is the difference between the testing of our faith and temptation?
It’s clear that the testing of our faith produces patience (James 1:3) as we fully place full trust in our Heavenly Father. It also gauges where we're at in our faith in God, but what about when we experience temptation? 
Does God tempt us? Why do we experience temptation? What happens when we give in to temptation? Should we give into temptation?
Temptation is a process that starts as a root. It then continues to develop slowly and so subtle that one can barely tell it’s there. The end result is compromise and giving in to our own desires that lead to sin.
The Cobbler House upcoming Bible study will be in James 1:13-18. As we read through the scripture and lesson, we will be taking a look at what the Bible says about temptation and much more.
We hope you can join us for worship, study of His Word and fellowship!

If you need prayer or have any questions about the study there are various ways you can connect with us:

TCH Memory Verse of the Week

Image
Memory verse extravaganza week! We have four verses to put to memory this week. No worries if you are unable to. At minimum, put at least one to memory. The following memory verses relate to temptation.
We all battle or will battle temptation at one time or another. Memorizing scripture will help you in this time of need.
As you call on the Lord, during trials, He will help you to recall the verses you've memorized. At that point, simply stir them up in your mind and in your heart and then give it all to the Lord. Totally let Him guide you through it.
Since many of us use a cellphone, I've created images with scripture so that you can download to your phone and set it as your phone wallpaper.
They worked on my phone. Only one thing. I had to pinch the image to make it the size of the phone background. This is a test run so let me know if it works for you in the comments section below.
1 Corinthians 10:13 (NKJV) "No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; …

Thursday Evening Bible Study

Image
This week at the Cobbler House we are beginning our study through the book of James. James was a leader of the Jerusalem church, who writes a powerful message to a persecuted people for purposes of instruction and encouragement in difficult times.
In between James 1:1 and 1:2, James tells us that he is writing to the twelve tribes that are scattered abroad and facing trials.
What trials were these people facing exactly?
Well, Acts 8:1-3 tells us that the death of Stephen marked the beginning of a great persecution against the church with Saul and others like him “dragging off men and women, committing them to prison (v3).”
Certainly the dire circumstances that these early believers found themselves in were not of their own choosing, but they were nonetheless the reality of following Jesus.
James takes the opportunity in his letter to challenge his readers to view their trials from a heavenly perspective and recognize that good will come from their very difficult circumstances.
What ever hap…

TCH Memory Verse of the Week

Image
Join us as we venture into memorizing scripture once a week, one passage at a time. The Bible says to "write them on the tablet of your heart."
Part of our weekly Bible study at the Cobbler House, is to take a passage of scripture that pertains to the lesson and put it to memory.
As believers, putting scripture to memory helps us in many ways such as:
-It builds up our personal relationship with our Heavenly Father.

-It prepares us to recall scripture when we don't have our Bible with us.
-It helps us when we are witnessing to an unbeliever about Jesus and much more.
Hope you can join us in this!
Ok, so this week's memory verse is James 1:2-4: "2 My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, 3 knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. 4 But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing."God bless you. Stay Strong in Christ!

Testing of Your Faith

Image
So it’s almost time to take the big test, and you feel confident that you are going to do well because you have studied and prepared for it.
It took hours upon hours, but you took the time to read the entire textbook.

Even though you knew it would take a vast amount of time, you created flashcards to help you memorize the information you read within the textbook.

For days upon days, you labored to bring all things you thought would be on the test to memory, and finally the day of the big test arrives.

You strolled to the test location with great confidence. No stress. No fear. ‘I’ve got this’ you said.

You then take a seat and the big test begins.

Although there were a few questions that stumped you, and one that brought you a little bit of stress, you whiz through the test with great confidence in your heart.

Once completed, you picked up your test, and took it over to the proctor, and handed it over to be checked.

As you wait for the results, you think about all the studying and effort you…

Do You Remember When You Became Born Again?

Image
Do you remember back in the day when you finally turned your life over to Jesus and became born again?
The affects of that great event in my life were awesome! Not only was I forgiven for all my previous foolishness (sin), but I also began to view my surroundings in a different way.

I viewed them with amazing sharpness and clarity, wonder and awe.
Things that I once took for granted and never really stood out to me, became awesome, amazing things to me.
The sky looked different. The rain looked different. The mountains looked different and so did the trees and even the leaves and the grass on the ground. (Twenty-two years later, I'm still amazed.)
I'd be driving staring at the sky and mountains with great amazement at God's creation. 
The Word stands true - I certainly went (at that time) and still go out in joy and [am] led forth in peace every day. The more I focus on Jesus the more joy and peace He provides.
If you have not turned your life over to Jesus, I would say do it tod…
