“Judgement and Mercy on the Same Horse”, Luke 19:28-44. Many Palm Sunday sermons will be preached from Matthew 21 today. Luke’s account has a view we will study today (which is entirely consistent with Matthew) that documents Jesus’ heart for Jerusalem before entering into the temple. His arrival into Jerusalem was not an easy journey physically. He had a job to do; the will of his Father. His work was not in the garden, but on the cross. Hallelujah for the Cross!
“The Truth”, 2 John. I share many times from the pulpit that Truth is not relative to anything. It stands alone. It has to. Truth is not subjective. It is in a category like nothing else in the world. How can we know and live in truth? God’s Word is Truth, His son is Truth, his plan for our lives here and someday in Heaven is Truth, and his way is Truth. Are you living in the Truth of his Word or are you living in the alleged truth of a deceiver?
“Only the Overcomers”, 1 John 5:1-15. Many people today claim belief in God and feel that is enough to make it to Heaven. In Scripture we find out belief goes much further than that. It truly involves being born again! The ONLY way of being in a covenant relationship with God is through Christ his son. He is our greater witness of the Father. (vs9) He who has the Son has LIFE!
“Loving as God’s Children”, 1 John 3:11-24. As we continue our study in the epistles of John, we see the standard for love and what that looks like in a believer. Real love has the ability to lay our lives down for our brothers. What does that look like? It begins with word AND deed. Talk is cheap in ministry. Do you really love others? Do you really love God?
“Living as God’s Children”, 1 John 3:3-11. Living under grace is not a license to sin. The early church really struggled with that bad theology. Today is a scriptural wake up call to the church today. Repentance begins in the house of God!
