On episode 79 of the Adorned Podcast we discuss the last part of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount in Matthew Chapter 7. It is said that “the hardest thing for man to maintain since the fall is balance.” We see Jesus addressing the idea of balance several times in this passage. We would love for you to join us as we wrap up the first part of our study of Matthew!Quotes:“The hardest thing for man to maintain since the fall is BALANCE” -Thabiti Anyabwile“God is not just our provider, but He is kind.”“False prophets depend on us not knowing The Bible.” -Jen Wilkin“Am I really resting in and trusting the fact that Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection is what saves me?”“When storms come, that’s when we really see what our foundation is.”Resources:Inductive Study Guide The Village Church’s women’s Bible study on MatthewSermon on Matthew 7:1-12 by Thabiti AnyabwileKnowing the Bible: Matthew by Drew Hunter *The beautiful music heard on today’s episode is by Katie Cobbs*
On episode 78 of the Adorned Podcast we dive into the second part of Matthew chapter 6. In this section Jesus reminds us several different times in several different ways that we should focus the attention of our heart and mind on things with eternal value. What does it mean to seek first the kingdom of God? We invite you to listen in and join us as we study God’s Word together!Quotes:“Are you finding your satisfaction in your comfort and trust in things on earth or are you looking more at things that have eternal value? It comes back to the same question of who is on the throne?”“As soon as you think we couldn’t live without something, that thing has become your treasure.”“What am I allowing into my heart through my eyes?”“Worry distracts us from the primary goal of seeking first the kingdom of God.”Resources:Inductive Study Guide Do No Worry by Ellie Holcomb The Village Church’s women’s Bible study on Matthew*The beautiful music heard on today’s episode is by Katie Cobbs*
On episode 77 of the Adorned Podcast we walk through the first part of Matthew chapter 6 and look at how Jesus was teaching His disciples to pray in verses 9-13, “The Lord’s Prayer.” Jesus demonstrates a pattern of bouncing back and forth between praise and petition, which in turn leads to confession. Join us as we take a deeper look into how Jesus is teaching us to commune with The Father.Quotes:“Would I still do this act of kindness even if I couldn’t take any pictures or post them on social media?”“What we should do is show when we’re tempted to hide and hide when we’re tempted to show.” -Jen Wilkin“God cannot be flattered, educated, convinced, or coerced.” -Jen Wilkin“Who is sitting on the throne of your heart? If you’re still sitting there, he’s not hallowed. He’s not holy. He’s not set apart. If the approval of others is sitting on the throne of your heart—if it’s pride, if it’s lust, if there’s anything else sitting on the throne of your heart—he’s not hallowed in it.”  -Tyler St. Clair“It’s God’s kingdom. He is the one on the throne!”“Recognizing temptation is the first step in resisting it.”Resources:Inductive Study GuideThe Village Church’s women’s Bible study on Matthew*The beautiful music heard on today’s episode is by Katie Cobbs*
On episode 76 of the Adorned podcast we discuss the second half of Matthew chapter 5. In this section of The Sermon on the Mount, Jesus is teaching His disciples, and in turn us, that we shouldn’t live with a “what’s the least I can do to get by” attitude, but one that desires to truly love others as He does. We would love for you to join us as we continue to study God’s Word together!Quotes:“Jesus is saying that the reason for the law is to point us toward him.”“Sin often starts with what we fix our eyes on and that leads to an unhealthy desire and actions.”“There are times that the marriage covenant has been so defiled that it doesn’t bear any resemblance to the relationship between Christ and the church and it is a mercy to dissolve it.” -Jen Wilkin“Let your yes be yes and let your no be no.”“Do we really trust that God is in control and He wants what’s good for us and what brings Him the most glory?”“God is good, God is worthy of my trust, and He holds all of this in His hands.”“Can a person be perfect? Theoretically, the answer to that is yes. The New Testament tells us that with every temptation we meet, God gives us a way to escape that temptation. He always gives us enough grace to overcome sin. So sin in the Christian life, I would say, is inevitable because of our weakness and because of the multitude of opportunities we have to sin. But on a given occasion, it is never, ever necessary. So in that sense, we could theoretically be perfect, though none of us is.” -R.C. SproulResources:Inductive Study GuideThe Church as the Light of the World sermon by Sinclair Ferguson When Jesus says, "Be ye perfect as your Father in heaven is perfect," does that mean we can attain perfection, and should we? by R.C.

This week on the Adorned Podcast we begin our study of The Sermon on the Mount, Jesus’ longest recorded sermon. In His teaching, Jesus answers the question “what is a good life or what is human flourishing?” On episode 75 we cover the first part of chapter 5, which is known as the “beatitudes.” The beatitudes are not a band, as Erin once believed, but they are short statements that start with “blessed” and they summarize the essence of The Sermon on the Mount. Join us as we continue to see Jesus paint this picture of what it looks like to live as a follower of Him.Quotes:“True human flourishing is only available through communion with the Father God through his revealed Son, Jesus, as we are empowered by the Holy Spirit. This flourishing is only experienced through faithful, heart-deep, whole-person discipleship, following Jesus’ teachings and life, which situate the disciple into God’s community or kingdom. This flourishing will only be experienced fully in the eschaton, when God finally establishes his reign upon the earth. As followers of Jesus journey through their lives, they will experience suffering in this world, which in God’s providence is in fact a means to true flourishing even now” -Jonathan T. Pennington“The first 4 beatitudes are where our faith takes root and the last 4 are how it bears fruit” -Jen WilkinIn reference to being poor in spirit - “ It is the conscious acknowledgement of unworth before God, the deepest form of repentance.” -D.A. Carson“Meekness is not weakness it is strength that is restrained”Resources:God’s Very Good Idea by Trillia NewbellThe Garden, the Curtain and the Cross by Carl Laferton and Catalina Echeverri Inductive Study GuideThe Village Church’s women’s Bible study on Matthew*The beautiful music heard on today’s episode is by Katie Cobbs*
This week on the Adorned Podcast we take a look at the beginning of Jesus’ ministry in Matthew 4:12-25. We know that Jesus didn’t need the disciples’ help, but in His kindness He invited them in. The Bible tells us that the disciples didn’t hesitate to follow Jesus, they just dropped their fishing nets and went “immediately.” Immediate obedience is hard, but it is a theme that we have already seen so much in the first 4 chapters of Matthew. How is God asking you to follow him in immediate obedience today?Quotes:“Being a disciple means having an open mind, an open heart, and being willing to be taught.”“Jesus didn’t need the disciple’s help, but He was willing to invite them in so they could be a part of what He was doing to expand the kingdom. What a gift.”“Caring for someone’s physical needs is hard, but it really is such an important part of sharing the gospel.”“We need more than the humble life of Christ, we also need need the victorious rule and ministry of Christ to overcome Satan’s schemes, to bring healing and restoration to the brokenness that sin produces, and provide reconciliation between God and man.” -Jeff VandersteltResources:Inductive Study GuideThe Village Church’s women’s Bible study on MatthewGospel Fluency by Jeff Vanderstelt*The beautiful music heard on today’s episode is by Katie Cobbs*
On episode 73 of the Adorned Podcast we dive into the first part of Matthew chapter 4. Temptation is such a difficult topic, but we can find immense comfort through this passage that shows us how Jesus was tempted in the same ways we are today. When we break down these 11 verses, we notice that Jesus gives us some very practical examples for how to fight temptation in our own lives. We can praise God for sending his Son to identify with His people!Quotes:“We have to hide His word in our hearts so we can use it to fight temptation.”“The question is “do you seek to Glorify yourself or will you glorify your father in heaven” The Son always gives glory to the father.” -Jen Wilkin“God is who He says He is and He will do what He says He will do. He will provide.”“God is our provider and just like he provided manna for the Israelites, he provides everything we need today.”“Every temptation you face comes down to the question “Is God really good, can you really trust him?””“God is good and His work is sufficient.” -Jeff Vanderstelt“You can’t impart what you don’t possess.” -John PiperResources:Inductive Study Guide Gospel Fluency by Jeff VandersteltThe Village Church’s women’s Bible study on Matthew*The beautiful music heard on today’s episode is by Katie Cobbs*
On episode 72 of the Adorned Podcast we dig into chapter 3 of Matthew. The chapter begins with John the Baptist preaching a message of repentance and addressing the importance of baptism. When Jesus approaches John desiring to be baptized himself, John is understandably hesitant, but he acts out of obedience. Why is it important for Jesus, God wrapped in flesh, to be baptized? How is the trinity so beautifully displayed during this event? Join us as we discuss these questions and more!Quotes:“We don’t repent so the kingdom will come, but we repent because it is here.” -Jen Wilkin“Repentance isn’t just turning away from sin, but it’s turning to something else.”“God truly wants the best for His children.”“ The entrance of Christ into his public ministry on earth was the chosen opportunity for the public manifestation of the intimate union between God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.“ -Charles SpurgeonResources:Inductive Study Guide The Song of Creation, sermon by Tim Keller The Village Church’s women’s Bible study on MatthewGospel Fluency by Jeff Vanderstelt*The beautiful music heard on today’s episode is by Katie Cobbs*
On episode 71 of the Adorned Podcast we dive into chapters 1 and 2 of Matthew. The book begins with the genealogy of Jesus and we immediately notice that Matthew is reassuring the Jews that Jesus is indeed their promised Messiah. Matthew then goes on to recount the story of Jesus’ birth and the events surrounding the first few years of His life. Throughout these first 2 chapters we continually see God’s sovereignty in the big miracles, the small details, and even through  what Herod meant for evil. The beginning of this book is such a good reminder that we can rest in the fact that God is in total and complete control!Quotes:“God is in control and can use anyone He pleases. He can save anyone He pleases.”“The first link between my soul and Christ is not my goodness but my badness, not my merit but my misery, not my standing but my falling, not my riches but my need.” -Charles Spurgeon“If you believe in a God who controls the big things, you have to believe in a God who controls the little things.” -Elisabeth Elliot“God is not only sovereign over the big things and the small things, but He is also sovereign over the bad.”“Seeing the brokenness of man truly gets us to see Jesus for who he really is and how much His blood accomplishes on the cross on our behalf.”Resources:Inductive Study Guide The Village Church’s women’s Bible study on Matthew*The beautiful music heard on today’s episode is by Katie Cobbs*
On Episode 70 of the Adorned Podcast we recap our last series “Our Gifts, His Glory” by discussing what God taught us through our conversations with all of the amazing ladies we were privileged to interview. We officially announce that our fall series will be a walk through the first part of the gospel of Matthew. If you are at all familiar with this podcast, then you know that we believe the context of what we are studying is so very important. That is why we spend some time during this episode discussing who wrote the book, when he wrote it, his purpose behind his writing, and what themes we will continually see as we read? We can’t wait to see what God is going to teach all of us as we continue to study His Word together!Quotes:“Don’t stop walking just because you might trip.”“Recognize, repent, and keep walking forward.”“If Jesus said it then it’s absolutely true and we should focus on what He’s saying.”“Matthew gave us God’s entire plan from Genesis to Revelation” -Spurgeon Study Bible “Matthew was writing this book to announce and affirm Jesus.  What does your life announce and affirm?”“Matthew makes no division between history and theology. History is the basis of theology, and theology interprets the meaning of historical events. He speaks truth about real events in history, and he does so with a spiritual, pastoral, and covenantal agenda.” -Reformation Study Bible“The false teacher relies on you having ignorance of the text.” -Jen WilkinResources:Inductive Study Guide The Village Church’s women’s Bible study on Matthew*The beautiful music heard on today’s episode is by Katie Cobbs*
