• OK (Luke 1.26-38)

    Third Sunday of Advent

    Scripture: Luke 1:26-38

    In the sixth month, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.”

  • Defying Gravity (Matthew 14.22-33)

    Matthew 14.22-33

    22 Immediately Jesus made His disciples get into the boat and go before Him to the other side, while He sent the multitudes away. 23 And when He had sent the multitudes away, He went up on the mountain by Himself to pray. Now when evening came, He was alone there. 24 But the boat was now in the middle of the sea, tossed by the waves, for the wind was contrary.

  • 5 Faith-Limiting Assumptions (Matthew 13.53-57)

    “Where did this man get this wisdom and these mighty works?”
    They knew the answer — "God!" But they could not get around their false assumptions -- and therefore severely limited God’s blessings.

    5 Faith-Limiting Assumptions

    “I know the full story.”

    Not really -- they only knew half the story. Joseph was not Jesus’ dad!  We don't often know the backstory.
    “Judge not, that you be not judged.” (Matthew 7.1)

  • Two Burdens

    Burdens of Doubt

    Jesus doesn’t mince words when it comes to judgment and hell.
    “Does God subvert judgment? Or does the Almighty pervert justice?” (Job 8.3)

    Selective Blindness
    This blindness ranges from turning a blind eye to the beauty of creation to staunch refusal to acknowledge all things spiritual.
    And Jesus said, “For judgment I have come into this world, that those who do not see may see, and that those who see may be made blind.” (John 9.39)
