Today we look at one of the most beautiful but also heartbreaking sections of the Bible. The parable of the vineyard and the wicked tenants is a grand scale story about all of creation and what happened when men fell into sin. Luke 20:9-18
Many of us know the parable of the prodigal son, but today we look into the older brother and his relationship with both his father and his brother. Luke 15:25-32
Today we are in the story of the lost son or most widely known as the prodigal son. This story contains the most beautiful expression of the relatship between a father and son. This is a wonderful account of what our sin looks like in the eyes of God and the devastation we bring upon ourselves. Yet, Jesus is waiting and ready to run to us. Luke 15:11-24
As we dive back into our series of the Parables: The Stories Jesus Told. We find ourselves at Luke 13:22-30 with the Parable of the Narrow Door. In this parable Jesus is asked a question, "Will only a few be saved?" Jesus not only answers this question but explains why only a few will be saved. In doing so He reveals a core truth of the Gospel that is both exclusive and inclusive at the same time. Luke 13:22-30
Today we focus on the importance and Biblical command of baptism and church membership. This is so important as we see our culture being absolutely devoid of all commitments. The Life of a Christian is commitment.
While many know this passage as the Parable of the Sower, the real focus on the various types of soil that are affected by the one seed. These are those who hear the Word of God, the Seed, and Jesus describes how the Gospel then affects them. How does this impact our evangelism? Luke 8:4-15
As we celebrate Easter Sunday, we need to realize that not everyone was joyous on that Easter morning. Some of the disciples had given up hope on Jesus and had left the city. Yet, Jesus seeks these disciples out and reveals to them the ramifications of the Resurrection. Luke 24:13-35
This Good Friday, we will examine how Christ was substituted for Barabbas. When we look at Barabbas it becomes clear that he was a sinner, guilty, deserving of death, and without hope much like us before Christ. Luke 23:13-25
Palm Sunday is often celebrated because of the words spoken by the crowd, but few understand the motivations behind their words. This was not a spiritual welcoming to the Savior as He arrived in Jerusalem, rather this was a political rally. The Israelites, specifically those who were from Bethany, were facing their expectations on Christ. Do we do the same today? John 12:12-18
Benedictions in Scripture are often overlooked and understudied. As we finish our series in Ephesians we must look into Paul's closing of this beautiful letter. Paul's final words to the Ephesian church are words of love. He shows the church what it means to love you brothers and sisters in Christ. Ephesians 6:21-24.
Paul gives his final big topic to the Ephesians as he focuses on the spiritual battle that is raging all around us even today. Satan, his demons, and the world is trying to trap Christians into giving into sin and abandoning the faith. Paul teaches that this battle cannot be won by us. Christians are completely outgunned, yet the victory can be won through Christ and the power He gives to those who follow Him. This power is known as the armor of God. Ephesians 6:14-20

Paul turns his focus from living the Gospel through righteousness in the home to how Christians are to live within the issue of slavery. Slavery is something many falsely consider the Bible silent on, but there is much to be discussed on how God views slavery. Since slavery is not in our immediate context, the application is made to how Christians are to work for their employers and how employers are to treat their workers. Ephesians 6:5-9
