There are times when every believer feels disappointment with God. Even though we haven’t lost our faith, in our most honest moments, we are willing to admit that it’s hard to pray. It’s hard to talk with someone who has dashed our expectations, including God. So, we are tempted to ask the honest question, “Why pray?” In this Sermon, Pastor Ben returns to the pulpit to continue our study of Jesus’ parables in Luke 11:1-13 and 18:1-8, where the Lord teaches us why we should always pray and not give up.
Does God Really Care about Me?
The Parables of Jesus
January 16, 2022 • Pastor Ben Cross • Luke 11:1–13, Luke 18:1–8
Are You Ready?
January 23, 2022 • Pastor Ben Cross • Luke 19:11–27
THE defining moment in our lives will be when we stand before Jesus as our Judge. There is nothing more crucial than being ready for that moment and helping others be ready as well. That moment means everything. In Luke 19:11-27, Jesus told a parable that captures the full meaning of this moment for every person in history. The pressing question we must ask ourselves is, “Are we ready?”
The Parable of the Prodigal Son
January 9, 2022 • Pastor Michael DiMarco • Luke 15
The Parable of the Prodigal Son in Luke 15 is one of Jesus’ most famous illustrations of the Father’s love for rebellious children. Yet, the parable is really about the Father’s two sons. If we look close, we might just see ourselves in both sons’ attitudes and actions. Join us this Sunday as Michael DiMarco continues the sermon series, “The Parables of Jesus.”
The Parable of the Rich Fool
December 5, 2021 • Pastor Matt Erdmann • Luke 12:13–21
God's provision and plan was packaged in the birth, life, death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. And because of Jesus we have the ability to experience the riches of our Heavenly Father and to take those riches and be a blessing to others and to live a life of response that leaves a lasting legacy of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, and more! In Luke 12:13-21, Jesus shares a story about a man who missed those moments, who measured life by materialism, and made mistakes that left his life marked by earthly endeavors rather than eternal expectations. This Sunday we will be challenged, encouraged, and inspired to be people who are blessed, by God, to be a blessing and called to live a life of lasting legacy.
