Now I See – Part 5 of “Notorious”

Jesus gave sight to the blind and made the mute speak, and not only as a kindness to the blind and mute people he helped. Part of the reason Jesus performed miracles during his earthly ministry was to teach us about God – and especially, to show how he continues to miracles today by the power of his Spirit. What kind of miracles are those? How can we see them? Pastor Luke looks at Matthew 9 in “Now I See,” part 5 of his 6-part series “Notorious.”

Whitewash – Part 3 of What Sorrow Awaits

Jesus hung out with all kinds of people, including some pretty questionable characters like tax collectors and thieves. He didn’t endorse what they did, but he seemed to like them, and to be liked by them. But religious hypocrites were a different story. Why? What’s so bad about being a hypocrite? Pastor Luke preaches from Matthew 23 in “Whitewash,” part 3 of his 4-part series “What Sorrow Awaits.”

Series: What Sorrow Awaits

We think of Jesus as a happy person, mostly, with kids in his lap and a sheep somewhere in the picture. That’s not a bad image and there’s lots of support for it in the Bible. But sometimes Jesus got angry, too. In his biography of Jesus, Matthew records a whole speech where Jesus listed seven different things that he wasn’t happy about. Can you imagine what they were? You might be surprised. (The series begins on March 9, 2014 and runs for 4 messages.)

Humility – Part 4 of “What’s Good”

God wants us to do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with him. Why? Why is it so important to God that we relate to him in humble fashion? It might seem like God was insecure or prideful. But the real problem becomes clear when you look at the reverse: if you look at someone who doesn’t walk humbly with God. Pastor Luke looks at Luke 18 in “Humility,” the concluding message in his series “What’s Good.”
