 History’s Most Memorable Speech-"Appearances Can Be Deceiving" | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3557

The old saying goes, “Don’t judge a book by its cover.” This is usually meant to be a reminder that someone who looks like little on the outside may be incredibly wise on the inside. But sadly, the inverse can also be true. Those who look righteous on the outside can harbor deep wickedness on the inside. Jesus warns us against these kinds of people and reminds us that these kinds of people can look a lot like…us.

 History’s Most Memorable Speech-"Engaging our Enemies" | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3546

Jesus begins His Sermon on the Mount with a word on how we are blessed by God. Now, Jesus exhorts us to be a blessing to others – but not just to any old “others,” but to our enemies. In this message, we look at some ways to bless those we like the least.

 History’s Most Memorable Speech-"Tackling Tough Topics" | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3399

Jesus certainly does not shy away from tough topics in the Sermon on the Mount. He talks about murder and anger and making vows and loving enemies and foregoing worry. In these verses, Jesus talks about sexual morality. Like Jesus, we must never be afraid to tackle even the tough and controversial topics of our day. People need and want to know what the Lord says.

 Christmas in Reverse-"Reversing…Insignificance" | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3237

In the ancient world, shepherds were considered to be blue collar, insignificant scoundrels. But it is to these simple men that God chooses to herald the birth of His Son. God takes insignificant shepherds and gives them a significant role in one of the most famous stories of all time. God can also use us – no matter how insignificant we may feel – for amazingly significant things.

 Christmas in Reverse-"Reversing…Ignorance" | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3184

Herod was ignorant that the Messiah was to be born in Bethlehem. The wise men were ignorant that Herod was an evil despot. Both needed to understand God’s Word and plans more fully. We too need to understand God’s Word and plans. Thankfully, God reveals Himself to us through Jesus so that we do not remain ignorant of who He is.

 Discipleship as Following & Leading (part 2) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3986

“Leadership is not an identity.  It is a function.  Leadership is not a position.  It is relational ... it is a behavior.  This behavior is learned best by learning how to follow well.  First and foremost, Godly leaders will be Jesus followers.”

 Discipleship as Following & Leading (part 1) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3671

“Leadership is not an identity.  It is a function.  Leadership is not a position.  It is relational ... it is a behavior.  This behavior is learned best by learning how to follow well.  First and foremost, Godly leaders will be Jesus followers.”

 Jesus Christ, M.D.-The Process | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3516

Healing is often not so much an event as it is a process. The woman Jesus heals from her bleeding has gone through doctor after doctor, but none have been able to help her. Jesus Himself then leads her through a process of not only physical healing, but of confession and absolution. When we are sick, we too go through a process of getting help from medical professionals and turning to Christ in faith for help.

 Jesus Christ, M.D.-The Faith | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3659

Some people treat faith as if it is a magical healing force. “You can be healed,” some will say, “if you have enough faith.” But faith is not a force; it is trust in Christ. Faith is only as good as what it trusts in. The Canaanite woman is healed not simply because she has faith, but because she has faith in Jesus – that He loves her and desires to help her.

 Jesus Christ, M.D.-The Reason | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3118

Why does sickness plague us? Because sin plagues us. When some friends of a paralyzed man bring Him to Jesus, before He heals the man physically, Jesus heals the man spiritually – He forgives this man’s sins. Though we cannot say that it is some specific sin that leads to an illness, disease is a part of and the result of living in a sinful, fallen broken world. Therefore, we all need healing.

 Treasure(d)-You | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3248

On Reformation Day, we remember that we are God’s treasure. Indeed, God treasures us so much that He sends His Son to die so that we might be saved. In Mark 10, when Jesus meets a rich young man, He immediately treasures him: “Jesus looked at him and loved him” (verse 21). But this rich young man will not respond to Jesus’ love in faith.

 Treasure(d)-God | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3263

Too often, we value the things of this world above the things of God. In two short parables, Jesus asks us to envision this world’s most precious treasures and then asks: What if we pursued the treasure of God’s kingdom as passionately as we pursued the treasures of this world?

 Treasure(d)-Others | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3452

Zacchaeus began as a man who look out only for himself. But then he met Jesus and went from being greedy – concerned only with his wealth and needs – to generous, gladly giving sacrificially of himself to serve others. When we put others before our money, this inspires generosity. Do we live as Zacchaeus lived?

 Jesus.-Turning the Tables on Temptation | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3082

Everyone is tempted. Even Jesus was tempted. Jesus responds to temptation with the sword of the Spirit – the Word of God. This is how we too are called to respond to temptation. In this message, we learn about Satan’s tactics for tempting us and how we can stand strong against him

 Jesus.-Big on Baptism | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3279

Baptism washes our sins away (cf. Acts 22:16). Of course, Jesus had no sins to wash away, yet He still wanted to be baptized! This is why the one whom Jesus asks to baptize Him, John the Baptist, becomes so puzzled. During Jubilee Weekend, we take a look at the theology of baptism and learn how we should follow Jesus’ lead in baptism and trust the promises He gives through baptism.
