From Death to Life10/19/14
From Death to Life Paul’s words to the Christians of Thessalonica are meant for us all, and that despite what might befall, we are to remain faithful to our Lord, for above all else He has brought us from death to life.
"All Things are Ready"
"All Things are Ready" This exposition on the parable of the wedding feast highlights the Lord's words directed at the religious elite. That there are those that should be at the great banquet of the Kingdom, but will refuse, and many who had no...
The Perils of Posing
The Perils of Posing Jesus following the confrontation with the scribes, Pharisee, and High Priests will express to those that flock to hear Him, that there is danger in only appearing religious. That there is peril in posing as what you are not.
Responding to Truth
Responding to Truth Our Lord is confronted by the religious elite, and challenged concerning His right to act and speak as He does. Jesus' response reveals their lack of honesty, and their need to respond, as is we too must, to the truth.
"Life in Christ"
"Life in Christ" Paul is in prison in Rome, but he seems less concerned about his trial, than what is needed most for his parishioners. He also reveals what is to be our true desire, despite all things it is to be a life in Christ.
Hard, but we must
Hard, but we must There are a number of what are called the "hard sayings of Jesus." Just what do they really imply, and what is to be our reaction to their hard demands.
Life as a Christian
Life as a Christian Just how does a Church discipline itself? In this wonderful narrative Christ lays out how as Christians we are to deal with conflict and difficulties in our midst. It is rational, gracious, and unfortunately seldom used.
"The Cost of Discipleship"
"The Cost of Discipleship" Discipleship is not for the few or select, it is the calling of all who believe, but there is something that should be weighed, the Cost of discipleship.
"Full of the Spirit and Wisdom"
"Full of the Spirit and Wisdom" Just how does a church properly deal with conflicts and problems that arise? The early church had one answer, and one we should all emulate, that is find those of good repute, and who are also "full of the Spirit and...
Branches of the Olive Tree
Branches of the Olive Tree This is an exposition of one of the most misunderstood portions of our New Testament, and that God will fulfill His word, and before the Lord returns, one sign will be the widespread coming to Christ of natural Israel.
"Came walking on the sea"
"Came walking on the sea" The miraculous feeding of the five thousand is quickly followed by another sign, one too often overlooked, but should not be, for it is Jesus again revealing His nature in a divine theophany.
His provisions in the wilderness
His provisions in the wilderness This special sign that Jesus performs in the wilderness is the one found in all four gospels, and is one in which too are to understand just who Jesus truly is. This program is a look at the meaning of the feeding of...
"That God may have mercy upon all"
"That God may have mercy upon all" There is nothing like Paul to confuse the skeptic, and irreligious, and this is so true as he regales his readers with the quandary of why Israel has yet to accept Jesus as their Messiah.
"The Kingdom is like"
"The Kingdom is like" This is the continuation of last week exposition, as the true and complete meaning of Jesus' frequent use of parables is further explored, and it?s meaning for us, even to this day.
It is all about the Kingdom
It is all about the Kingdom This is about the parable of the sower, and what it really means. It is about the Kingdom of God, and what that really means. It may not be what you think it is, and how it applies to our lives centuries later.
More Tolerable On That Day
More Tolerable On That Day This program is a profound look at how our Lord judged the disbelief on the cities of Galilee, and as they were so privileged in what they experienced, and what they may mean for our own societies, as we have been so...
"God will provide"
"God will provide" The program takes a different tack, and looks at the profound and disturbing test of Abraham, concerning his son, "his only son," Isaac to be sacrificed. What this meant, and its impact on our faith even to this day.
"Be not afraid"
"Be not afraid" This is a look at the tenth chapter of Matthew?s gospel, and how precious we are in the sight of God. And that no matter what we face in life, God is concerned, and has said that we need not be afraid, for He knows us intimately even...
What's in a Name
What's in a Name This Trinity Sunday we look at the importance of this tenet of our faith. It is not a human construction, but how our God has revealed Himself, and includes for us the question posed to the disciples, just "who do you say I am?"
"As Many as the Lord God Calls"
"As Many as the Lord God Calls" This is Pentecost Sunday, which is not so much the beginning of the Church, as it is about the fulfillment of the Holy Spirit. Not upon a select few, but this is "the promise to as many as the Lord God calls," and...
