Son of David, Have Mercy



David is pretty heroic in Sunday School stories, pretty cringe-worthy at other points in his life. Yet God made a BIG promise to David that people are still talking about it in eternity. God would establish a “house” for David so that the Son of David would establish a “house” for God and be established in God’s kingdom forever. With all the talk about “seed” and “forever” it makes you wonder how anyone got confused about this covenant ever being about a temple in Jerusalem. It is so much bigger than that.

Faithful to Pray



Jesus used the story of a self-serving judge and a persistent widow to teach His disciples how much better God the Father is at answering prayer. But will we trust that He hears and answers our prayers in His good timing? Will we be found faithful when He comes?

Don’t Just Stand



We enjoyed having Jake and his family share with us their testimony of God’s faithfulness and their mission project in the other “battlefield town.”  Plus he preaches to us of the importance of Standing Firm and not falling away in challenging times.  But the Word of God calls us to more than standing, we need to be contributing to the kingdom of God.

The Wait is Over



It is an often under-appreciated in not overlooked portion of the Christmas story, just a few days later and before the wise men arrived. Joseph and Mary take their newborn son to fulfill purification and dedication requirements from the Law. And the Holy Spirit had two faithful saints waiting for the coming of the Messiah: Simeon and Anna. And what they proclaim is important for us to know. For it can bring us joy as it brought them great joy to behold the Consolation and Redemption.

Necessary for Obedience



Jesus beautifully illustrated the command to love one’s neighbor with the story of the Good Samaritan, where someone who had no reason to show compassion to a hurting person went above and beyond to help.  But how can one have that kind of love for another?  The following episode that Luke reports shows that Jesus answers that question for Mary and Martha.  The most needful thing is to sit at the feet of Jesus to learn of His love.

Repent for More



The children of Israel had broken the covenant of love and broken the heart of God with their traitorous turn with the golden calf. Moses had successfully pleaded with God to turn away His wrath. But the people would need to turn from their sinful attitude if they wanted God to still be in their presence. That turning is called “repentance.” And it’s kind of a big deal.  But it is the path to a closer vision of God.

The Kingdom is Here



The King of kings was born humbly, anointed by the Holy Spirit at His baptism by John, manifested with power through miracles and teaching with authority. The King defeated His enemies: sin, death, the devil, and the grave. He was unmistakably proven that He is alive to His closest followers, empowering them to be witnesses of His kingdom. That is the their new commission, testify to the resurrection authority of the King who has ascended to His throne and is coming again in like manner.

Complete in Christ



The virgin conception reported in Luke 1:30-35 sets the stage for an important doctrine for followers of Jesus – the Deity of Christ. The completeness of the Godhead resides in Him and thus we are complete in Christ. Don’t let anyone plunder you empty with vain deceptions to follow weaker things. Christ is where the fullness resides.

The Miraculous Catch



Jesus draws people unto Himself with His power and His words. And some will want even more and see His working. Through repentance and faith, these people will hear the call to greater intimacy with Christ. And intimacy that empowers them to be a part of drawing others to Christ.

Wise unto Eternity



Jesus used a curious parable to teach a profound truth – we need to be prepared for the future.  The future often comes without warning.  And most important is the future in eternity.  Are we investing in eternity or only in today?  Listen in as we examine the different points that Christ makes from the story of the Unjust Steward.
