Zacchaeus: A BIG SINNER WITH A BIGGER GOD

A BIG SINNER WITH A BIGGER GOD LUKE 19:1-10 Zacchaeus was a tax collector who his contemporaries despised, yet Jesus sought him out and spent time with him. After being with Jesus Zacchaeus was transformed. Zacchaeus repented, which led to his restoration and restitution to those he had cheated. He was small in stature but became a giant in the faith. Like Zacchaeus, we are all sinners in need of the grace of the Lord Jesus. We wash our hands…

THREE CROSSES AND A CAVE

THREE CROSSES AND A CAVE LUKE 23:26-46 Christ, our Lord, is risen today! As we celebrate the victorious resurrection of Jesus Christ, we think of the three crosses on Mt. Calvary: a cross of rejection, a cross of reception, and a cross of redemption along with a deceived sinner, a decided seeker, and the delivering Savior. Think about how quickly Jesus can change a life, making it not just fit to live but fit to live in heaven with Jesus!…

BENT AND BROKEN

BENT AND BROKEN Luke 13:10-17 Have you ever felt bent and broken? Perhaps now? The message today is about Jesus healing a desperate lady who had been physically bent and broken for 18 years. That which Jesus did for this lady physically, Jesus wants to do for you and me spiritually. When we are utterly powerless, bound and shackled, unable to stand, we need to remember that nothing is impossible with God. God has His hand on your life. He…

REPENT! A CALL TO ALL, Part 2

REPENT! A CALL TO ALL, Part 2 Luke 13:1-5 Is repentance essential to a follower of Jesus Christ? The obvious answer is yes, but sometimes it is lacking in real everyday life. The enemy of our souls wants us to duck behind our shame and guilt, deny or ignore it, and go on with business as usual. Gradually this hardens our hards to the Lord and opens our minds to compromise with sin. Repentance is essential. What is in our…

THE GOOD SAMARITAN

THE GOOD SAMARITAN Luke 10 How would you respond if you were in the Samaritan’s shoes? Would you love your neighbor as yourself ? It is always easier to pass to the other side! There are so many reasonable excuses. Passing on the other side doesn’t always mean physically distancing ourselves. It can be emotional or mental distancing, avoiding the risk of sharing another’s pain or need. Hurt is messy; helping is battling against risk, very real risk. It often…

JOHN: THE REDNECK PREACHER, PART 2

JOHN: THE REDNECK PREACHER, PART 2 Luke 3,5 John the Baptist, prophesied of in the Old Testament, came to prepare the people of his day to see Jesus. He lived in the wilderness, ate locusts and honey, wore clothing of camel hair, and had never cut his hair because of his Nazarite vow. His appearance probably was a bit wild and defiant. However, the real defiance was internal – against a worldly system of sin, complacency, apathy, and lukewarmness –…

CHRISTMAS IS CRITICAL

CHRISTMAS IS CRITICAL Luke 2:1-14 Why is Christmas critical? Christmas is of the greatest importance for many reasons. From this passage, Rob explains five vital reasons for its significance: (1) Christmas is a cure for panic, (2) Christmas is a cure for pessimism, (3) Christmas is for all people, (4) Christmas is very personal (God’s offer of salvation is loving that offered to each of us –individually), and (5) Christmas is about a pardon.
