Ten lepers are cleansed, but only one is truly healed. The difference is that he enters into relationship with Jesus.
Recordings of our Tuesday night teaching series on values, vision and membership
The unnamed rich man rejects God’s grace by rejecting the poor man Lazarus. The parable lifts the veil on how God sees poverty, and how we should see people.
A greedy, desperate and dishonest man uses his wealth shrewdly. How much more should Christians, motivated by love, be able to use wealth to bless others.
True holiness leads to passion for the lost.
There is hope, because God is in charge of the world, the country and your life!
Jesus prescribes medicine for the pride and fear that fuel our self-promotion.
A woman is healed on the Sabbath. God’s law is for our blessing.
Jesus’ statement that he has come to bring division shows an important element of real love, that it requires fortitude to do what is hard. This understanding saves us from weak and sentimental imitations of the fire of God’s love.
Confidence that God’s desire is to give us eternal life frees us from fear and enables us to live with a love that make more sense of the world around us.
