    based on 5 ratings
     | 14,511 views

    The focus is humility in prayer out of a realization that righteousness can not be reached by means of our own efforts. Prayers are heard & answered because of God's mercy not because of our self-justifying merits.

    LUKE 18: 9-14 [PARABLES IN LUKE] THE PARABLE OF THE PRAYERS [Luke 11:39-11;54] In this section Jesus tells a story of a Pharisee and a tax collector. Both were sincere and devout.

    Contributed by Allan Quak on Nov 18, 2010
    based on 4 ratings
     | 11,242 views

    The inclusion of Tamar in the genealogy of Jesus demonstrates that, even when we find ourselves in a sinful situation because of our desperation, God is still willing to include us into His family line.

  • Rahab - Living Without Fear Series

    Contributed by Allan Quak on Nov 25, 2010
    based on 8 ratings
     | 5,795 views

    Rahab teaches the Israelites a truth they should have learnt 40 years earlier. When you fear instead of trusting in the promises of God you will find yourself missing out on the full freedom that a relationship with God can give.

  • Ruth - An Outsider Welcomed In Series

    Contributed by Allan Quak on Dec 1, 2010
    based on 3 ratings
     | 5,641 views

    Logically Ruth should not be in the genealogy of Jesus. As a Moabite she is from a despised nation and the only person seeking to be an example to her is Naomi - a woman who is bitter and angry at God. Yet God moves in mysterious ways to include Ruth.

    Contributed by Allan Quak on Dec 14, 2010
    based on 4 ratings
     | 5,309 views

    Despite being the Mother of Jesus we get the feeling that Mary was quite an ordinary person. Yet, when the angel appeared to her, she has an extraordinary response of faith. Our call is to know that Jesus brings ordinary people into His family.

  • Eliphaz’s Answer:- You Have Done Evil Series

    Contributed by Allan Quak on Jul 22, 2011
    based on 2 ratings
     | 2,969 views

    Eliphaz has a one sided view of God which turns God into a cause-and-effect God. We see that only focussing on one aspect of God’s character will give us a skewed view of God.

    based on 1 rating
     | 1,858 views

    How do we relate to people who are outside our church group? It is easy to judge and keep away - but Jesus calls us to a different attitude. We are to be those who keep building relationships no matter what.

  • The Ultimate Challenge Series

    Contributed by Allan Quak on Jul 14, 2011
     | 2,361 views

    The difficulties in life are not what cause us to suffer. It is our response to these difficulties that cause us to suffer. The ultimate challenge in the book of Job is:- Will I Trust God ... Or Not?

    based on 1 rating
     | 1,866 views

    Zophar’s answer to Job’s situation is to tell Job to pick up his performance - work harder and all will be well. But this is not a correct portrayal of God.
