    In our text for today's study, we find Jesus responding to two individuals regarding the matter of discipleship. One we will call simply the Scribe: One who wanted to be a disciple, the other we will call the loyal son, who had to reminded of the cost.

    Introduction A. A teacher was helping one of her kindergarten students put his boots on? He asked for help and she could see why. With her pulling and him pushing, the boots still didn't want to go on. When the second boot was on, she had worked up a sweat. She almost whimpered when the little ...read more

    Jesus displayed the cost of Discipleship in His own Life and Death and followers of Him can expect nothing less than total commitment to God's Kingdom.

     | 1,538 views

    Kneeling in worship of the God who abased Himself for our benefit is a physical way of signing our desire that our wills be in conformity with God's will.

    June 27, 2011 St. Cyril of Alexandria The Spirit of the Liturgy What do we owe to God? What gift should we give Him? Before considering that question, we should ask about God’s nature and actions. The Scriptures today tell us much about this God we worship. First, before injustice ...read more

  • Authority And The Fear Of God

     | 3,048 views

    Matthew 8 demonstrates Jesus’ authority in miracles and ministry. Jesus’ words and works show us the depth and extent of His authority. Our call is to walk under that suthority as we hear and heed his instruction.

    Matthew 7 ends with the amazement of the crowds who heard Jesus teachings. They observed that Jesus spoke with authority and not as their teachers of the law or scribes. We noticed several passages last week about the fear of the Lord and its importance to our lives as Christians. Without the ...read more

    So how does our loving saviour and Lord get away with saying "Forget about burying your father. Just follow Me now!" How unsympathetic! How insensitive! Give the man a break. Let him bury his own father! What is going on here?

    Part 12 - Matthew 8:18-22 - HOW CAN JESUS BE SO CALLOUS? My Dad died of cancer in a nursing home. He was in a partial coma when I visited him before that day came.

    It's interesting to me that Jesus called His disciples to leave the crowd and His disciples and they experience some spiritual warfare as they cross to the other side of the lake. Why would Jesus miss this opportunity, when He had a crowd gathered?

    Part 10 - Matthew 8:18-34 - WHEN JESUS SKIPS OUT ON CHURCH, YOU KNOW SOMETHING IS WRONG! I remember as a young student Pastor being invited to a Church for afternoon tea. They said they wanted to pray for me. What I didn't realise is that they wanted to pray for me to be their Pastor. At the end ...read more

    It’s simple,really. Jesus calls us to follow Him. Let’s see what that means.

    Passage: Matthew 8:18-22 Intro: As a kid growing up in the church, there were certain songs that seemed dishonest for me to sing. Here was one: 1) “Earthly pleasures vainly call me, I would be like Jesus. Nothing worldly shall enthrall me, I would be like Jesus. Be like Jesus, this my song, ...read more
