Jesus appointed his apostles to be the authoritative witnesses to his words, his works, and his resurrection. In the New Testament we have a record of their testimony that is not only historically reliable but which is also powerfully transformational.
The New Testament: The Transforming Record of the Apostle's
December 17, 2017 • Larry Kroon • Luke 6:12-16
The Parable of the Dishonest Manager
January 13, 2019 • Joel Stamoolis
Although Jesus concludes this parable with a simple directive and then explains the reasoning behind his directive, Christians often find this parable and the accompanying directive perplexing. Our goal this morning is to slow down and listen carefully to the words of Jesus, that we may hear him well and obey.
The Gospel of Repentance
December 16, 2018 • Larry Kroon
At the heart of the gospel is the call to repentance. At the heart of the call to repentance is the heart of God. Our goal today is to hear God’s heart in the words of Jesus, and to hear it in such a way that we will ever hear the call to repentance for the glorious good news that it is.
Count the Cost
December 9, 2018 • Larry Kroon
The demands of Christian discipleship are absolute and unavoidable. If you are going to say, “yes,” to Jesus you must, in a very real way, say, “no,” to everyone and everything else. No person and no possession can be of more value or importance to you than Jesus. Short of this “all in” commitment, you cannot be a disciple of Jesus. You do not make that sort of commitment without first sitting down and counting the cost. We will be doing that today.
