A Centurion's Slave, a Widow's Son & Doubting John (Luke 7)

Luke offers no details about the diagnosis of the centurion's slave, which is uncharacteristic for him as a physician, but by doing this he focuses our attention on the prognosis. The prognosis is terrible, even terminal. The centurion, therefore, sends for Jesus that He might come and save his slave. Jesus responds graciously and begins the trek to the centurion's house t...

Learning, Living, and Loving (Luke 6)

As the Pharisees were trying to trap Jesus in something He said and as they grew in their rage against Him, Jesus goes away to pray all night. He is not praying that the opposition would go away, nor was He looking for a new course of action or a different method. Rather, in the face of opposition, He spends all night in prayer with His Father in order that He might press ...

Living Between Two Realities (Isaiah 2:1-9)

When Christ's church is in a state of such decline that it is no longer able to function as salt and light, leaving the culture around her free to pursue a self-destructive course at an alarming pace, then the Lord will enter into judgment. When the church is under judgment, we often follow the pattern of the Israelites, thinking that the cure to our problems is more relig...

Cultural Chaos (Exodus 1-3, Psalm 105)

The current state of our situation is not the result of a few rash decisions or changes that happened overnight.

Sinners, Wineskins and the Sabbath (Luke 5:27-6:11)

Jesus continues with his mission to seek and save the lost. To do so, he does not choose the theologically trained, moral upright, or the spiritually disciplined. He chooses people like Levi the tax collector, who is worse than your average sinner. Jesus chooses all types of sinners from all types of backgrounds, and accomplishes the impossible. These sinners are united no...

Membership Requirements (Ephesians 1&2)

The Kingdom of God is that which is made up of the Church Universal throughout all of time. It is the heavenly kingdom to which every true believer belongs and will belong for eternity to come. The embassy of that kingdom on the earth is the local church. The local church is the outpost or embassy of the Kingdom in a foreign land. It is the tangible representation of the K...

Doubting John and the Compassionate Christ (Matthew 11:1-6)

Doubting John and the Compassionate Christ (Matthew 11:1-6)Sermon Link While we have often heard of "Doubting Thomas," we sometimes forget that even fiery John the Baptizer began to wonder if Jesus Christ was really the Messiah after all. The question that John the Baptist faces is also the question that rings hauntingly to us as well - "Art thou he that should come or lo...

Fishing, Healing, and Forgiving (Luke 5:1-26)

Fishing, Healing, and Forgiving (Luke 5:1-26)(Sermon Link) Fishing (verses 1-11) The instruction that Jesus gives Peter is accompanied with a promise, telling him that if he lets his net down, there will be a catch.

Preaching: Practical and Powerful (Luke 4:14-34)

Preaching: Practical and Powerful (Luke 4:14-34) God had one Son and He made Him a preacher. Everywhere Jesus went, he preached. In every age of the church, preaching has been God's principal means for the awakening of sinners and the edifying of saints. Practical Application: The Jews were amazed by His teaching, but doubt and unbelief overtakes them. They are delighte...
