    In 2003 a guy by the name of Chris Moneymaker changed the face of poker when he turned $39 into 2.5 million by winning the World Series of Poker.

    based on 5 ratings

    Hate your parents, spouse, kids??? What is going on here in Luke 14? Before we decided to change the Word of God, consider the unthinkable with me for a bit. It might just open our eyes to a deeper understanding of who Jesus is.

    (If you rate this sermon please offer helpful comments, God bless, Greg) When was the last time you said something that you really didn’t mean? What if I got up here and said, “If anyone comes to this church and does not hate his father and mother, his wife and children, his brothers and more

    A Place of Service Luke 14:25-30 25 And there went great multitudes with him: and he turned, and said unto them, 26 If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple. 27 And more

    based on 2 ratings

    How can we hate our parents, partners and children? It has to be the most offensive exhortation Jesus ever gave - telling us that we have to hate the ones we love th most...

    As soon as I noticed that our Gospel reading today was the one that begins by telling us that we’ve got to ’hate our mothers and fathers’, I decided then and there to give my sermon today on Paul’s Letter to Philemon! No, as much as I’d like to do that, I feel I have to stick with "hate your more

    based on 4 ratings

    Get Off Your “Buts” 1) The Lord’s banquet is ready, so hurry! 2) The Lord’s banquet hall is huge, so herald!

    An article in the Edmonton Journal last week reported that children are spending an average of six hours a day in front of some type of a screen. Add that up and it’s about as much time as their parents are spending each week at work! Such an inactive lifestyle so early on will lead to future more

  • The Great Banquet Series

    Contributed by Sean Harder on Jul 26, 2012

    Jesus launches into a parable about a wedding feast where he is essentially saying that in the kingdom of God the humble are exalted and those who seek to exalt themselves are humbled. It’s an upside down Kingdom from what people are used to. So that’s t

    Two weeks ago we looked at the parable of the sower whose main theme was the impact of the world on our hearing and doing of the Word. Last week’s Good Samaritan parable spoke to the fact that real love is action based on compassion. And now this week the main theme is about us realizing our more

He was so determined to have us as dinner guests that He sent His own more
