Part 2

Matthew 20:1-16 • September 2, 2018 • Pastor Luke Uran

Part 3 | SLT Vision Casting Sunday

September 9, 2018 • Pastor Luke Uran

Prefacing the SLT's vision casting for this year, Pastor Luke uses the story of Elisha and Jehoshaphat to encourage us to practice "faith that works." Our greatest need can become a blessing when it drives us to depend on God. Furthermore, Gods wants us to work and participate in His filling our needs.

Part 5

What is the meaning of "judge" as Christ uses it in Matt.7:1? Pastor Luke unpacks the meaning of this word in its worldly vs. biblical context and teaches how Christians should practice moral discernment.

Part 6

September 30, 2018 • Pastor Luke Uran

Pastor Luke examines the apparent contradiction between Luke 12:51 and Isaiah 9:6. The difference is that Isaiah speaks of the Messiah bringing peace between God and men; whereas in Luke, Jesus speaks of causing division between His followers and other men. There is no middle ground in our walk with Christ. We must "own" Jesus in all of our earthly relationships.
