The Law, The Gospel, and the Kingdom 03/01/15

What happens when you do something wrong and it’s found out. Well you try and make an excuse to justify your actions. Sometimes that works but eventually you’ll get caught and punished for your wrong behavior.

Luke 16:14-18

Your Money or Your Life 02/22/15

Have you ever gone to the store to buy a friend! I doubt it. But I bet you’ve bought an ice cream cone just to impress a cute girl so that she’d be your friend! Are you using your money and resources for your personal gain? Or are you using your money for spiritual advancement?

Luke 16:1-13

The Lost Brother 02/15/15

Sibling rivals! How often have you heard “Daddy loves me more!” ”No he doesn’t!” and on it goes. The oldest brother in the Prodigal Son was jealous of the love his father showed to his younger brother. But the truth is he didn’t want the love. But we’ll see his father longed to give it to him.

Luke 15:25-32

The Prodigal Father 02/08/15

Have you ever loved someone even when it really cost you something, and then kept on loving? Have you ever loved so much that other people thought you a bit strange? That’s how God loves us.

Luke 15:11-24

The Lost Son 02/01/15

What does a teenage boy, a bunch of money and freedom equal? It equals Trouble! You know how the stories go. If the truth be told we really just want to live the way we want to, wasting away in the pleasures of the sinful world. However we must repent of this desire and come back to Christ!

Luke 15:11-24

The Lost Coin 01/25/15

Are you looking for an excuse to celebrate? The Angels in heaven are. But do you know what brings them joy? It should also bring joy to our hearts. There is nothing greater on this earth an a lost soul coming to salvation.

Luke 15:8-10

The Lost Sheep 01/18/15

It may not be flattering to think of ourselves as sheep – they may be cute as lambs, but they’re stupid and often wander. It’s truly comforting to know that Christ is our shepherd. When we wander and got lost, he will come find us and carry us home.

Luke 15:1-7

The Cruciform Life 01/11/15

If you want to follow Jesus, you must hate your father and mother, your spouse and even your kids. These words seem not only harsh but they seem to contradict the very commands God has given to us. Yet Jesus said them. Today we’ll be trying to understand what Jesus meant, and how we can follow him.

Luke 14:25-35

An Open Invitation 01/04/15

Sometimes we picture God condemning most people, while only a very few make it into heaven. The parable of the banquet shows us a completely different picture. We see God relentlessly seeking after people to come join his feast.

Luke 14:12-24

The Best Seat in the House 12/28/14

Have you found yourself stepping on other people in order to get what you want? Maybe it’s for recognition at church, a promotion at work, or a gadget at the store you’re dying to have. Our hearts tell us to push others aside to get what we think we deserve. Jesus shows a very different way for us to live.

Luke 14:1-11

Sent to Justify 12/21/14

If you look around at Christmas time you’ll likely see almost everywhere baby Jesus in a manger. But something is missing, can you think of what it is? In order to fully understand Christmas, another part of Jesus’ story needs to be told. Tune in this week to Every Last Word with Dr. Phil Ryken to hear about the very important connection between the manger and the cross.
