VERY SHORT STORIES

The Parables of Jesus

Don't waste your invitation

November 21, 2021 • Ps. Jorge Romero • Matthew 21, Matthew 22:1–14

After Jesus' authority is questioned following his triumphal entry into Jerusalem. Jesus responds with 3 parables. These parables are known as parables of judgement. The closing statement in the third parable reads: "For many are invited, but few are chosen". In this message we learn that accepting God's invitation requires obedience in faith.

Embracing the New

November 14, 2021 • Ps. Larry Long • Mark 2:18–22, Mark 7:1–8, Mark 7:14–23

Growth always requires change. But change doesn’t always bring growth. The Spirit must guide us and lead us through change.

The Good Samaritan

November 7, 2021 • Ps. Larry Long • John 10:33

Those of us who consider ourselves spiritually sophisticated at avoiding truth will often seek to excuse ourselves. Often silencing the truth with a thousand definitions and a thousand qualifications. Sometimes we redefine the question so that it becomes unanswerable. When that doesn't work, we define the answer so that it no longer applies.

The Kingdom of God and our Response

October 31, 2021 • Ps. Jorge Romero • Matthew 13:31–43

The parables about the Kingdom in Matthew 13 remind us about God’s activity in our world and the proper response to it.

The Parable of the Sower

October 24, 2021 • Ps. Jorge Romero • Matthew 13

A parable is a story or an illustration that us used to teach a bigger truth. In the parable of the Sower, we find out that Jesus uses an everyday situation to describe a supernatural possibility.
