 The Conflict that Stole Christmas (Week 3) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3202

When families get together, conflict can abound. We can get frustrated with each other instead of celebrating with each other. James reminds us that, instead of fighting with others, we can trust in God to bring ultimate justice to all, even when we feel as though others have wronged us.

 The Schedule that Stole Christmas (Week 2) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3289

During the holidays, there are parties to attend and presents to buy and relatives to visit and too many things to do! The stress of the season can steal joy from the season. It is important that, rather than overscheduling ourselves, we take time for rest and, when we need it, be willing to ask for help.

 The Materialism that Stole Christmas (Week 1) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3264

It is easy to get so focused on the gifts of Christmas that we forget about the Gift of Christmas! Materialism is rampant not only during the holidays, but in our society, all year long. In Luke 12, Jesus tells a parable that reminds us that the earthly things we store up for ourselves are not nearly as important as the spiritual inheritance that is ours in Christ.

 Self-Storage: In Store (Week 3) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3488

Sometimes, we get so caught up worrying about what we have stored up, we forget that, no matter how much or how little we may have on this earth, God has something fantastic in store for us – nothing less than a crown of righteousness. In a world that test and try our faith, we can be confident that our faith will be vindicated when Christ returns.

 Lutheran Hour Ministries Presentation | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3014

If we are going to store up things, what things should we be storing? Jesus invites us to store up things that are imperishable – things that last into eternity. Thus, in this life, we ought to store up God’s Word in our hearts and we ought to store up people in our lives, for these treasures last.

 Self-Storage: Store House (Week 1) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3113

The first principle of stewardship is this: no matter what we may store, it ultimately belongs to God. Any store house is finally God’s house. To help us understand this, God has given us a tithe. In the tithe, we not only give to God, we give back to God, since everything we have comes from Him in the first place. When we give back to God, we learn that God continues to give us what we need and even beyond what we need.

 Sola: Glory to God Alone (Week 5) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3418

Soli Deo Gloria explains how we should live. Everything we do should be connected to Christ. In this way, we have no spiritual life and everyday life, we only have a Christ-centered life. Do you do everything with Christ in mind?

 Sola: Scripture Alone (Week 4) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3265

When it comes to understanding God, it can be all too tempting to trust ourselves rather than God’s Word. We try to trust our consciences, our culture, or our comprehension. But going beyond God’s Word either allows us to create a God in our own image (Mark 7:1-13) or saddles us with burdens we cannot bear (Matthew 23:4).

 Sola: Faith Alone (Week 3) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3602

They way in which we receive God’s grace is through faith. We trust that God wants to forgive and save us. If we seek to work for what God has given, we are saying that God’s work is not enough. Do we trust God’s work so completely that we do not try to add to it or augment it?

 Sola: Grace Alone (Week 2) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3414

Grace is when God gives us what we do not deserve. In a culture that works on merit, that can be difficult for us to accept! Yet, even if grace goes against our cultural senses, it is a deep spiritual need – for each and every one of us.

 Sola: Christ Alone (Week 1) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3439

Grace is when God gives us what we do not deserve. In a culture that works on merit, that can be difficult for us to accept! Yet, even if grace goes against our cultural senses, it is a deep spiritual need – for each and every one of us.

 When the Waters Rise: We Serve (Week 2) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3386

As recovery efforts from Hurricane Harvey get underway, insurance companies will be working overtime. One insurance company boasts, “Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there!” We don’t need to work for an insurance company, however, to be a good neighbor. Jesus explains that being a good neighbor can be as simple as seeing a need and taking the time to offer your help. Everyone can be a good neighbor. Everyone can serve.

 When the Waters Rise: We Pray (Week 1) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3423

When the disciples are caught in a furious squall on the Sea of Galilee, they offer up a simple, ineloquent prayer: “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!” No matter how simple the prayer, Jesus hears and helps because Jesus has been there the whole time. As we process what has happened with Hurricane Harvey, we must remember that Jesus hears and helps us when we pray because He is not only the calmer of storms, He is with us through every storm.

 Genesis: Reunification (Week 14) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3578

After all that Joseph’s brothers have done to him, when Joseph becomes second in command in Egypt, he could use his power to exact vengeance from his brothers. But instead, he eventually reconciles with his brothers. In Genesis 43, when the brothers are getting ready to go see their brother Joseph a second time, Judah offers to bear the blame if something happens to his younger brother Benjamin. How far are we willing to go to love our families?

 Genesis: Two Dreamers (Bible Class - Week 13) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3468

After being thrown into a cistern, Joseph eventually winds up in prison in Egypt. But even in prison, Joseph seeks to serve God by helping others. During our worst times, do we seek to help others, or are we only focused on ourselves?
