Christians believe that the coming age will lack sickness, poverty, violence, death and everything else that makes the current age so hard. But is this just wishful thinking? That’s the question a group of Bible scholars asked Jesus. Pastor Luke preaches from Luke 20:27–38 in “Resurrection,” part one of a new series of that name.

We often do things in order to influence other people. We might want them to help us, or give us jobs, or just to like us. Can we influence God? And if we can, how? Pastor Luke looks at Luke 19:1–10 in “Reputation Management,” the concluding message in his series “Faith.”

The New Normal

Since the Covid-19 pandemic began, we’ve been wondering about the “new normal.” What will the new normal be like? How will we know when we get there? What should we do in the meantime? Centuries before Christ, God spoke through prophet Jeremiah to encourage people with questions pretty similar to ours. Pastor Luke preaches from Jeremiah 29:1,4–7,10 in “New Normal.”

Paul wrote the letters to the church in a Greek town called Thessalonica to encourage people he loved but could not be with. They found what he said was so encouraging, they kept the letter, and circulated to others who needed encouraging. They shared it in turn, and after a couple of centuries of being shared to encourage people, this letter – likely the oldest surviving Christian document – became part of the New Testament. Can it still encourage us today? Pastor Luke teaches from Thessalonians 1:1–10 in “Brand-New Testament,” the first message in a new series “Brand-New Testament.”
