Did Jesus have bad days when he lashed out unfairly at people? So many of the stories in the New Testament show Jesus’ love for even very objectionable people. What are we supposed to make of the times when he scolds … not just people but whole cities? Pastor Luke preaches from Matthew 11:20–24 in “Regrets Only,” part 4 of his 10-part series “Responses to the Messiah.”

Jesus cautioned people against complaining when things aren’t what they expect. Instead, he suggests, it is an opportunity to reevaluate what we could learn from that situation. How would we do that? Pastor Luke looks at Matthew 11:16–19 in “Playing Games,” part 3 of his 10-part series “Responses to the Messiah.”

God brought Israel out of slavery in Egypt to freedom in the promised land. Freedom is certainly far better than slavery. But it is not always easy. Freedom includes the freedom to starve, but it also includes the freedom to make mistakes and destroy relationships. We don’t want to go back into slavery, but what can we do – what can God do – about the problems of freedom? Pastor Luke teaches from Exodus 18:13–27 in “Capable People,” the concluding message in his series “The Road Out.”
