  • Spirit-Led Heirs Series

    Contributed by Ed Vasicek on Jun 1, 2020

    Every true believer in Christ is a Spirit-led heir of eternal life and blessings we cannot imagine. This is all from the hand of a loving Father.

    Spirit-Led Heirs (Romans 8:12-17) 1. “You may have heard the term “laughing heir” used by an estate planning lawyer, the media, or by courts. The legal definition of a “laughing heir” is a distant relative with inheritance rights without a close degree of kinship to the decedent. At common law, more

  • The Believer’s Two Inclinations Series

    Contributed by Ed Vasicek on May 25, 2020

    In explaining the spiritual nature of the true believer, Paul asserts three important FACTS.

    The Believer’s Two Inclinations (Romans 8:5-11) 1. Here is a true story from Patrick Grilliot: We Uber drivers never know whom we’re going to end up with as a passenger.

  • Why Some Will Not Forgive Series

    Contributed by Ed Vasicek on May 11, 2020

    Not everyone is willing to forgive the truly repentant. This lack of forgiveness can be divided int three categories at least.

    Why Some Will Not Forgive Luke 15:25-32 Review: We forgive as God does, conditioned upon repentance. When we wrong another, and we take responsibility and ask forgiveness for the specific wrong, things are then out of our hands. If people forgive us, it is out of their graciousness. If they do more

  • The Logic Of Pursuing Godliness Series

    Contributed by Ed Vasicek on May 11, 2020

    Paul clearly taught salvation by grace alone through faith alone in Jesus Christ alone. Such a teaching could easily raise two objections Paul addresses. And in doing so, he charts God’s agenda for holy living for the believer.

    The Logic of Pursuing Godliness (Romans 6:1-23) 1. It must be tough right now for to take the Census, with Covid and all. 2. I have a funny Jewish joke about this.

  • Why The Law Cannot Fix Us Series

    Contributed by Ed Vasicek on May 11, 2020

    Although ignorance is a major problem in the Christian world, our biggest issue involves being rightly related to God. Many, sadly, look to law-keeping as the way to know God or receive His forgiveness. This simply will not work; we need regeneration, the work of the Holy Spirit within us.

    Why the Law Cannot Fix Us (Romans 7:1-25) 1. Happy Mother’s Day to all our moms. Moms come with all sorts of personalities and approaches toward parenting. A mother is trying to get her son to eat carrots. “Carrots are good for your eyes,” she says. “How do you know?” the boy asks. The mother more

  • Genuine Apology Series

    Contributed by Ed Vasicek on Mar 29, 2020

    Asking for forgiveness is an excellent thing to do when we are genuinely remorseful. The Parable of the Prodigal Son models this.

    Genuine Apology (Luke 15:18) 1. Two hunters hire a small plane to take them to a remote area of Canada. Upon dropping off the hunters, the pilot tells them, "Remember only one moose, because the plane wouldn't be able to take off with more weight than that." The hunters go off. A more

  • Ignorance, Hurt, And Forgiveness Series

    Contributed by Ed Vasicek on Mar 16, 2020

    Today we will look at the difference between willful sin, sinning in ignorance, and the feelings that hurt creates -- and how this all relates to forgiveness.

    Ignorance, Hurt, and Forgiveness (topical) 1. A man given to day-dreaming was driving down the freeway a cell phone call came in through his blue tooth audio system. He heard his wife's voice urgently warning him, "Herman, I just heard on the news that there's a car going the wrong more

  • Letting Go Specifics Series

    Contributed by Ed Vasicek on Mar 2, 2020

    Letting go is an informal process, not a science; nonetheless, it is helpful to grasp two concepts about this matter.

    Letting Go Specifics 1. Two weeks ago, I tried to prove to you that the Bible teaches forgiveness is conditional, requiring repentance on the offender’s part. We forgive as God forgives. 2. We saw that forgiveness is a continuum. In some cases, forgiveness in the fullest sense – relating as more

  • When No Apology Is Forthcoming: What Do You Do? Series

    Contributed by Ed Vasicek on Feb 24, 2020

  • Forgiveness Is Conditional: Basics Series

    Contributed by Ed Vasicek on Feb 17, 2020

  • Lunch With Joseph Series

    Contributed by Ed Vasicek on Jan 27, 2020

    It is a lot easier to forgive someone who has hurt you deeply when you are convinced that they have pondered the gravity of their wrong-doing.

    Lunch with Joseph (Genesis 43:1-45:28) 1. “When I was a kid, my dad and I were driving somewhere on a nice, sunny afternoon…. My window was rolled down. The town we live in isn’t known to be a destination for celebs of any kind. We pull up to a light; we’re the second car from the front. A more
