    They all pointed to Him. Those prophets of the Old Testament were seeing something they couldn’t figure out, but longed to understand.

    When is the last time you saw something about to happen and you knew it would? At that moment, you were looking into the future and seeing the outcome of events that were yet to take place. God has made us spiritual creatures like himself. We make plans, we set goals, we write out our schedules more

    Gabriel was the last person Zachariah expected to meet in the temple and Gabriel’s message was the least expected word from God that Zachariah thought he would hear.

    How many parents do we have here today? Raise your hands. I met Phil and his wife, Linda when we lived in Vermont. They were DINKs. That was the term we used to describe people married where the husband and wife had a career and no plans to have children. DINKs was short for “double more

    When I was in high school there was a Christian College group that came to our chapel assembly and did some skits. I think they were called the Ambassadors or something, I can’t remember their name exactly, but I remember one skit that impressed me. I’ve updated it a little for this more

  • 5. Do You See This Woman?

    based on 58 ratings

    In order to truely see others as they are we must first see Jesus for who he is and ourselves for who we are. Blindness is prevelant among the religious.

    Do You See This Woman? Luke 7:36-50 Jesus’ ministry is impacting many people. His reputation as a healer continues to spread just as his clash with the religious leadership grows. He has crossed the line by forgiving sins, healing on the Sabbath and spending time with the wrong kind of more

  • 6. Is Jesus Your Teacher?

    based on 36 ratings

    If a fully trained student is like his teacher, we need to seriously consider who we allow to hold that position in our life and in our children’s lives.

    In this part of Luke’s gospel we see how Jesus began to get into trouble with the religious leaders. Chapter 5 tells us how he touches a leper and later announces to a man that his sins are forgiven, then he demonstrates his authority to forgive by healing the man. He doesn’t fast like he’s more

  • 8. Two Daughters Desparately Needing Jesus

    based on 49 ratings

    Luke tells us more about the women in Jesus’ life than any other gospel. Jesus on his way to deliver one daughter is detained by another one. Study the details... Discover your duty.

    Luke’s gospel has several unique features. I’d like to point out a couple of these: First, Luke is the only Gentile writer in the Bible and yet by volume, he contributed more that any other New Testament writer, more even than Paul. We’ve said this before, but it bears repeating. more

    The authority of Jesus flashes in our hearts and minds and brings light and deliverance from demonic darkness. But beware! Armor is essential to spiritual survival!

    At the heart of Luke 11 is a message about the battle for the heart. This chapter contains 54 verses of 1,314 words with 10 paragraphs in the NASV, or 1,311 words with 6 paragraphs in the KJV, or 1,244 words with 25 paragraphs in the NIV. I didn’t get a count of these in the Greek New more

    Jesus gets tough on hypocrisy and worldly desires. All that stands in the way of the kingdom of God must go!

    Does Jesus ever say things that make you mad? Sometimes when we get close to someone and there are disagreements, we get mad at each other. Does that ever happen in your family? Some things have to be said and done even when it makes for an angry response. Jesus knew when to be soft and when to more

    Our memory verse this week is Colossians 4:2. You’ll find it each week on the back of your bulletin entitled: Words to Live By. Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving. Can you say that with me? “Continue earnestly in prayer… being vigilant in it with more
