Matthew 14:22-36

Matthew 14:22-36 – May 31, 2020 Jesus Walks on Water  Review 8:23-27 The beginning of understanding. When Jesus got into the boat His disciples followed Him – they had made a decision and were not waiting to follow Him. Then the storm. Many of them may have been seamen, fishermen, but the waves were breaking over the sides of the boat. They tried all they could and it was not enough. They became fearful of dying. In their fear they…

Matthew 9:27-38

*Apologies for not capturing the audio of Angi’s sharing her missionary trip to Costa Rica and Honduras.  Many accepted Christ – and many recommitted.  Angi listened to God’s call to go out into the field….. Matthew 9:27-38, March 01, 2020 Healing and Missionary Message  Review:  9:18-26 Twelve and Twelve. Matthew gives these two miracles only 9 verses, while both Mark (5:22-43) with 22 verses and Luke (8:41-56) with 16 verses provide much more detail. Matthew quickly focuses on the faith…

Matthew 9:18-26

Thank you, Vic, for stepping in with such short notice.  Pastor Riley is recuperating from acute bronchitis….    

Matthew 9:1-8

Matthew 9:1-8, February 09, 2020 Hearing and Seeing  Review:  8:28-34 Demons and Pigs. When the boat arrived on the Eastern shore of the Sea of Galilee something truly odd happened, two demon possessed men came out to meet Jesus and only Jesus. They had no interaction with the others, only Jesus. A number of things stand out about their meeting with Jesus. 1) They knew who He was, 2) they feared Him, 3) they knew a time would come for…

Matthew 6:16-34

Note: due to technical difficulties, there is not a podcast for this message. Matthew 6:16-34, December 29, 2019 Your Heart and Your Priorities Review – The Lord’s Prayer and Your Heart Can we forgive others? Can we see our sins against God no matter how small we think they are, they are greater than any sin against us. Not sure what this means – look to what Jesus told us in Mark 11:25 and the comments of Spurgeon and Scott…

Matthew 6:1-15

Matthew 6:1-15, December 22, 2019 It is All About Your Heart Review – Chapter five concluded with six examples that had to do with your heart. Murder begins with anger in your heart. Adultery begins with lust in your heart. Divorce begins with selfishness and a hard heart. Oaths are only necessary if you have a lying heart. Revenge is only necessary if you do not have a forgiving heart – more on this today. Loving your enemies is made…
Then a cloud appeared and covered them, and a voice came from the cloud: "This is my Son, whom I love. Listen to Him!"

Mark 9:1-29

Review: 8:34-9:1 He teaches not only the disciples, but the crowd that has followed them at a distance while they walked. He calls them all together because He has a message for everyone – not only for His disciples. Denying self means to live as an others-centered person. Parents do this all the time for their children. Jesus would carry a cross, and walk down death row; so must those who follow Him. Are we willing to deny ourselves and…
Romans 1:9-10

Romans 1:1-12

Romans – the Meat and Potatoes of Christianity. Romans – the Consititution of Christianity. Romans has 16 chapters, the longest of Paul’s letters. Romans is considered by many to be Paul’s Magnum Opus or the greatest work of his life. The early church saw Romans as the most significant letter that Paul wrote and today it is thought to be the most ordered, complete, and comprehensive statement from his pen. It is believed he wrote it on or about 57…
1 Thessalonians 3:12

1 Thessalonians 3:6-4:12

Review 2:7 The three of them were like a mother caring for her own children. What image does this create in your mind? 2:11 Now as a father – a loving father – with his own children 2:12 Such a father encourages, comforts, and urges them not just to live life as a good person but to live lives worthy of God, who calls you into his kingdom and glory 2:13 Word of God Message 3:6-8 The Thessalonians had not…
