Jesus Christ’s Compassion for Sinners (Luke 13:31-34)

10/25/2021
We see Jesus Christ’s compassion for sinners when He said, “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to it! How often would I have gathered your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you were not willing!” (Luke 13:34). The Jews murdered the prophets, apostles, and Jesus, yet He still wanted to gather them under his wings to love and protect them.

Four Ways to Know When to Spend Money

10/16/2021
Because we know we must spend money, and because there are times when you really will find a good deal—many people have saved hundreds or thousands of dollars finding the right purchase at the right time—how do we know when to buy something? Let me first suggest this: Regardless of how attractive it looks, if you must take on debt, don’t make the purchase. Without the money, it is not a good deal for you. You might be tempted to say, “If I don’t get this now, I’ll never find this good of a...

Why Many Will Seek to Enter but not Be Able (Luke 13:25-30)

10/10/2021
Jesus said, “Strive to enter through the narrow door. For many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able” (Luke 13:24). In last week’s sermon we made it halfway through this verse. Notice the two halves. The first half is about people striving to enter through the narrow door now while they can. The second half is about people seeking to enter later when it’s too late. So Jesus spoke of the narrow door that’s open now and the closed door people encounter later. Not only is the...

Why We Must Strive to Enter Through the Narrow Door (Luke 13:22-24)

10/3/2021
Jesus said, “Strive to enter through the narrow door. For many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able” (Luke 13:24). There is probably an obvious question you are asking. It’s the same question I asked when reading these verses and I looked forward to studying them to learn the answer. Jesus says we are supposed to strive to enter through the narrow door, so does that mean we get to heaven by trying hard enough? It almost sounds like: If we put forth enough effort we will be...

Do You Have an Income Problem or Spending Problems?

9/27/2021
If we have spending problems, but blame our income, we don’t make appropriate changes because we put the blame in the wrong place. We blame our income when we should blame ourselves. We complain about our paycheck, when we should handle our finances differently. Let's discuss some of the most common spending problems. This is part one. Here is part two.

The Parables of the Mustard Seed and Leaven (Luke 13:18-21)

9/20/2021
The Parables of the Mustard Seed and Leaven in Luke 13:18-21 describe the growth and spreading influence of the church, but from different approaches. The parable of the mustard seed is about outward growth. Birds from outside fly into and become part of the tree. The parable of the leaven is about inward growth. The leaven works from inside the dough. Leaven makes dough rise from within which pictures the way the gospel changes us inwardly: it changes our hearts and then works its way into...

Husbands Lead Your Wives According to Scripture (Ephesians 5:25)

9/13/2021
The primary commands for husbands: "Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word" (Ephesians 5:25-26). Husbands lead your wives by obeying these verses and the verses that follow. https://youtu.be/tKxc4TPofqQ Husbands lead your wives by obeying Ephesians 5:25-33. The most common complaint wives have is that their husband is not leading in the home. Church and Family...

The Dangers of Legalism and Spiritual Bondage (Luke 10:13-17)

9/6/2021
The dangers of legalism and spiritual bondage are demonstrated in the account in Luke 13:10-17 when Jesus heals the crippled woman. Legalism makes people captives as much as any physical disability. The synagogue ruler was angry because Jesus healed on the Sabbath. It is hard to believe that something so beautiful could be so upsetting, but it reveals the bondage he was in—a bondage that was worse than the crippled woman’s bondage. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NCxyV95irrs The dangers of...

Should Christ or Your Spouse Meet Your Needs? – The Secret to Creating Remarkable Relationships

8/31/2021
"Should Christ or your spouse meet your needs?" This is a question every married person must answer. Fortunately, the answer is an easy one: Jesus Christ. Most people don't have to be married very long to recognize that their husband or wife will disappoint them at times. Marriage is a gift. God wants our relationship with our spouse to provide us with joy and blessing. But regardless of how committed our spouse is to Christ, he or she is still a sinner. Every husband or wife will fail to...

Bear Fruit in Keeping with Repentance (Luke 13:6-9)

8/16/2021
We must bear fruit in keeping with repentance. The main point of Luke 13 verses one through five is that we must repent. Jesus says, “You are looking at people who died in these tragedies and asking if they died because they are worse than everyone who lived. Instead, you should ask whether you have repented, because they perished physically, but if you don’t repent you are going to perish spiritually, or eternally.” Then Jesus adds to this in verses six through nine by talking about fruit,...

Are We Suffering for Sin? (Luke 13:1-5)

8/9/2021
The common tendency when experiencing trials is to wonder if we are suffering for sin. When Difficult situations occur we wonder what we did to cause the suffering we are experiencing. In Luke 13:1-5 Jesus taught that suffering is not always the result of sin. When Jesus commented on two tragedies that took place, he didn't explain why they happened, because we don't often get to find out why suffering occurs. Instead, he said we must all repent so we don't perish eternally....

Make Every Effort to Settle with God (Luke 12:54-59)

8/1/2021
We should make every effort to settle with God before we stand before Him. In Luke 12:58 Jesus said, "As you go with your accuser before the magistrate, make an effort to settle with him on the way, lest he drag you to the judge, and the judge hand you over to the officer, and the officer put you in prison." If we are involved in legal disputes and we are accused and guilty, the best thing to do is try to settle outside of court, because if it goes to trial, we will be found guilty and it...
