Luke 6

Luke
Sabbath Issues

From the time of Nehemiah, about 450 years before, the religious leaders have developed a fanatical approach to keeping the Sabbath. They built walls and then fences around the walls. Jesus came in like a bulldozer to destroy the traditions and it infuriated them to no end.

Easter
A True Look At Ourselves

What is the meaning of Easter? Do a google search and you will be both amazed and disheartened at the news articles posted about Easter. It is perhaps better to call it Resurrection Sunday, some make a big deal over the words we choose, but we can understand that Easter and Resurrection Sunday are the same day. But what is this day all about?

Guest Speaker
Rapture: I Shall Return

Can we still believe in the rapture? If so, how then shall we live?

Luke 5

Luke
Matthew

Jesus routinely reaches out to the social outcasts; Matthew is a wealthy one. Nothing is new under the son, no one likes the tax collector then or today. Jesus calls him, and us, to a new life.

Luke 5

Luke
Cleansing and Healing

The disease of Leprosy was pernicious and pervasive in the 1st Century. What was also pervasive is the opposition to healing that Jesus finds in the religious leaders. It almost seems that they would rather see people suffer than find relief. The crowds though are thrilled at Jesus’ miracles.

Luke 5

Luke
Fishers of Men

Jesus’ most faithful followers are gathered from the salt of the Earth men who would not have a shot at rabbinical training. As someone once said: “He doesn’t call the qualified, He qualifies the called.”

Luke 4

Luke
Demons & Mother In-Laws

One of the things that is interesting about Jesus ministry is how He is inundated with both the extraordinary and the mundane. Casting out demons left and right and in the middle of it is Peter’s Mother in law who has a fever. Jesus can deal with any problem we may have, large or small.

Luke 4

Luke
Galilee Ministry

The bulk of Jesus ministry happens either in Galilee or in Jerusalem. Galilee is the blue-collar area of Israel with fishing and farming being the primary industries. Jesus is embraced by the masses, probably because He looked and talked like them, but it quickly became apparent that He could provide for them as well.

Luke 4

Luke
Jesus' Temptation

We are reminded in Hebrews that we have a High Priest who was tempted as we are, yet without sin. While the gospels record 3 different ways Satan tempted Jesus, He was always aware of the pitfalls that surrounded Him and always deftly dealt with them.

Luke 3

Luke
Jesus’ Baptism and Beginnings

As Jesus is introduced, effectively ending the ministry of John, His credentials are presented for examination.

Luke 3

Luke
John the Baptist

John took his mission of “preparing the way for the Lord” seriously. He was a powerful preacher whose walk matched his talk.

Pastor Phil Perry

Luke 2

Luke
The Childhood of Jesus

We know nothing from Jesus’ early years save for this story from his middle years. A prequel to the upcoming back and forth between Jesus and the religious leaders, Jesus demonstrates at an early age incredible wisdom and understanding.

Pastor Phil Perry

Luke 2

Luke
The Presentation of Jesus

Mary and Joseph demonstrate what kind of parents they will be as they follow the traditions of the law with their newborn son. Along the way we are introduced to some of the faithful who have been waiting for the Salvation from the Lord.

Luke 2

Luke
Birth of Jesus

While we know this story well, the very smallest of details points to not only the extraordinary nature of this just born child but also His incredible mission. God with Us, Emmanuel is born!

Luke 1

Luke
Birth of John the Baptist

Apart from the birth of Jesus, the arrival of John the Baptist would be the most amazing event of the 1st Century. He is a throwback to the ancient prophets mixed in with a New Testament preacher. The circumstances around his birth point to the special nature of his life.

Luke 1

Luke
The Worship of the Women

The two Moms-to-be are united together in worship of what God is doing miraculously through them. What follows is a song for the ages!

Pastor Phil Perry

Luke 1

Luke
The Birth of Jesus Foretold

One of the reoccurring themes of Luke is an elevation of those considered “2nd class” in society. Instead of Zacharias and the priests being blessed by the good news of a coming Savior, it is two women, one old and one unmarried who know what is coming.

Pastor Phil Perry

Luke 1

Luke
The Birth of John the Baptist Foretold

The 1st character introduced in the book of Luke is Zacharias. He represents the important link between the Old Testament conduit to God—the priestly system and the New Testament--Jesus

Pastor Phil Perry

Luke 1

Luke
Introduction

The 3rd book of the New Testament is the longest book of the New Testament. While Matthew and Acts have more chapters, Luke is about 4 pages longer than both of them. Luke covers the birth of Jesus and his drive towards the cross more extensively than any other book. This book is filled with parables and miracles and we are excited to begin looking in depth at this wonderful retelling about our awesome Savior, Jesus!

How Do We Express Being Thankful?

Is saying “thank you” enough to be considered a thankful person? Is saying a brief prayer before a meal enough to be called thankful? Is sending out an occasional thank you card for a received gift enough? How do we embrace the idea of being so full of thanks that someone would describe us as being thankful?
