The Love of Sheep and Goats

Matthew 25.31-46
Apr 14th 2019

They say a chain is only as strong as its weakest link.

I've also heard it said that our love can be measured best by those we love the least.

Do you think your love for the least would pass the test of Christian love?

Join us this week as we wrap up another...read >>

No Profession Without Practice

Matthew 25.14-30
Apr 7th 2019

Are you someone of great means? Perhaps you own a lot of property, or several vehicles, your own business, or brand? Do you manage all or any of it in a way that honors the Lord?

Perhaps you're on the other end of the scale: not a person of great means? Maybe you...read >>

Everlasting Light

Matthew 25.1-13
Mar 31st 2019

If you want to make your point clear, state it clearly and repeat it. Well, that is certainly the Savior's approach when it comes to preparing His disciples for the Church age.

Two weeks ago, in chapter 24 verses 42-44, Jesus took up parable #1 in encouraging His...read >>

It’s All Good

Matthew 24.45-51
Mar 24th 2019

According to our passage today, there is no neutral ground. In Christ, there are the faithful who play their role in feeding and building up the body of Christ, or the unfaithful who feed on and divide the body of Christ.

But perhaps the most concerning part of...read >>

Stay Awake

Matthew 24.36-44
Mar 17th 2019

So when will the Son of Man return?

That's a question apparently not even He knows the answer to.

Wait... What? There's something the Son of God doesn't know?

Well, that's what He said.

But how can He be God, but not know something?

Glad you've joined us. If...read >>

My Words Will Not Pass Away

Matthew 24.32-35
Mar 10th 2019

Way back in v3 of chapter 24, the disciples asked the question that we would do well to keep before us. It is the question that Jesus spends a chapter and a half answering: “Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the...read >>

The Sign of The Son of Man

Matthew 24.29-31
Mar 3rd 2019

"And after those days..." After what days? And what is it that is going to happen after whatever day those are?

Those are the kinds of questions we have for our Messiah even still today.

Are you ready for more prophecy, more of Matthew 24?

Today's...read >>

The Abomination of Desolation

Matthew 24.15-21
Feb 10th 2019

"The Abomination of Desolation" Sounds pretty fierce, doesn't it? But what does it mean? What was Jesus talking about, and when would such desolation occur?

As mentioned in last week's sermon, theologians have argued for years as to what and when were all of the...read >>

The Beginning of The End

Matthew 24.1-14
Feb 3rd 2019

In his first epistle, Peter exhorts us to 'pay close attention to prophecy', but if we were honest, I wonder how many of us really do? It can be a world of encouragement, if we comprehend what we're reading. But it does take some effort; sometimes, a lot of...read >>

He Would But They Would Not

Matthew 23.33-39
Jan 27th 2019

On the heels of His seven woes we see the sorrow of the Messiah. How often He desired to gather the lost under His careful leadership, but they would not. They did not want Him. What would it take, to what length would the Messiah go to win the heart, soul & mind of...read >>
