11-30-2014_Isaiah 64_The Tale Of The Underdog

Israel was God's favored people, but she was never an empire. Often found wanting to be bigger than life, Israel had rejected her God many times. Still, her God loved her and sent His Son to be their king forever.


11-23-2014_Matt. 25_Not Much Distance From Right To Left

Jesus' picture of the king's return in judgment raises questions about genuine faith and unbelief. It is not what we can say of ourselves that stands for us in judgment, but what Jesus says for us.

Readiness for Jesus' return begins with repentance. Recognizing our sins of buried talent gives opportunity for Christ to renew his investment in us and produce a return.

Jesus never fails us in His gifts. Through His gifts, He keeps us "oiled," that is, prepared for His coming.

11-02-2014_Matt. 5_Blessed

We are blessed not simply by the things we can see. Jesus' opening words of the Sermon the Mount speak blessings into His disciples ears. These words reveal the true nature of God Himself, a God of blessing.
