Study Break

5/4/2022
The podcast is on break for some much needed study time before we start a new series.

Duration:00:03:53

04 Sabbath: Did Jesus change the Sabbath?

4/27/2022
How did Jesus had to our understanding of what should we do or not do on the Sabbath? He taught that Sabbath is a rest that is given, not earned, and that our “job” is to enjoy it, not to live up to it.

Duration:00:45:02

03 Sabbath: When do we keep the Sabbath?

4/20/2022
Sabbath rest is yet to come —the rest we enjoy today anticipates the real Sabbath rest that awaits us in the kingdom. That future rest is granted to those who have saving faith in Jesus Christ.

Duration:00:44:24

02 Sabbath: How do we keep the Sabbath?

4/13/2022
How do we keep the Sabbath? The simple command is not to work. We stop the activities we do that sustain our lives and instead we do the things that most foster our relationship to, understanding of and dependence on God.

Duration:00:42:20

01 Sabbath: Why remember the Sabbath?

4/6/2022
Sabbath is about who God is. It’s not about what we need to live healthy lives. It’s not about making sure we get our rest so that we can be productive at work, be nice to our family and stay awake during Bible Studies (though none of those things are bad things). Sabbath reminds us who God is. Because as we’ll see, on the Sabbath, we rest to remember God.

Duration:00:40:09

03 When God calls: but I’m afraid

3/30/2022
What if God has called me to something and I'm just plain afraid to follow? What if the path He has put before me seems too frightening or overwhelming?

Duration:00:26:31

02 When God calls: Rethink greatness

3/23/2022
How do you accomplish great things for the kingdom of God and quiet that inner voice that says whatever you're doing, it's not enough? In 2Kings 5 we see a series of contrasts between how the world measures greatness and God measures greatness.

Duration:00:38:59

01 When God calls: Burn your ox

3/16/2022
When God called Elisha to be succeed the prophet Elijah, Elisha was a farmer with no apparent qualifications. Yet Elisha burned his ox and followed. Then Elisha refused to leave his mentor's side, humbly asking that God equip him for the journey ahead.

Duration:00:33:31

04 Habakkuk 3:1-19 Habakkuk Responds

3/9/2022
Habakkuk responds to what he has learned with a song of praise and fear. In his prayer we see the answers to our 2 theme questions.

Duration:00:23:51

03 Habakkuk 2:1-20 The Lord Answers

3/2/2022
Habakkuk first asks why God would let evil go on so long among His own chosen people. Confused by the Lord's answer, Habakkuk then asks how the Lord can let the wicked trample the righteous? Again, the Lord's answer is not what Habakkuk expects.

Duration:00:26:32

02 Habakkuk 1:1-2:1 Habakkuk complains

2/23/2022
Habakkuk asks the Lord one of the most fundamental questions of faith: How long will you let your people suffer? The Lord answers, but not the way Habakkuk expects.

Duration:00:21:56

01 Habakkuk Introduction

2/16/2022
The Old Testament book of Habakkuk speaks to two of the most fundamental questions of the Christian faith: 1) How long will God let His people suffer? and 2) Why should we keep believing Him if we're not spared the tragedies of life?

Duration:00:16:46

41 Matthew 7:12-29 The Golden Rule & 2 Roads

2/9/2022
Matthew 7:12-29 summarizes two great themes we've seen in this sermon: 1) You shall love your neighbor as yourself. 2) There is a road that seems right to us, but it leads to destruction.

Duration:00:42:58

40 Matthew 7:7-11 Seek and you will find

2/2/2022
Ask God for the life He has promised and you will receive it. Seek the good things that He has promised and you will find them. Knock on the door to the kingdom of heaven and it will open to you. These words are powerful because of the difficult battle they represent. Believing and acting on these promises is the central struggle of the Christian life.

Duration:00:28:29

39 Matthew 7:6 Throwing pearls to pigs

1/26/2022
In Matthew 7:6, many people understand Jesus to be saying something like: you don't need to share the gospel with hostile, unworthy people. However, I agree with the minority who understand Jesus to be saying: don’t be the kind of fool who throws away what is beautiful and precious.

Duration:00:40:45

38 Matthew 7:1-5 The Log in your eye

1/19/2022
The log in your own eye versus the speck in your neighbor's eye is a powerful image of willfully living a lie. Jesus warns that if you condemn other people for their sins, you are ignoring a fundamental truth about yourself in a way that is almost impossible to imagine.

Duration:00:47:33

37 Matthew 6:25-34 Do not be anxious for tomorrow

1/12/2022
At first reading, Matthew 6:25-34 seems simple and straightforward: Don’t be anxious. God knows what you need and He will take care of you. The tricky part of this passage is figuring out exactly what we should not do and what we can expect God to do.

Duration:00:51:24

36 Matthew 6:19-24 Treasures in Heaven

1/5/2022
Why is the kingdom of heaven so incredibly valuable? In this passage, Jesus gives one of many important reasons: We cannot keep the treasures of this earth, and we cannot lose the treasures in heaven.

Duration:00:47:22

35 Matthew 6:13 The Lord’s Prayer: Temptation

12/8/2021
This last request is not to avoid the choice posed by temptation. This request is to be preserved through the choice. Father, do not let me fall into temptation to my doom.

Duration:00:44:44

34 Matthew 6:12-15 The Lord’s Prayer: Forgiveness

12/1/2021
It's not surprising that we find forgiveness in the Lord's prayer. For believers neither sin nor mercy are hypothetical concepts. We should be staggered by the power and beauty of mercy as proclaimed to us on the cross because we have been forgiven so great a debt.
