Three Relationships with the Father - Luke 15:11-31

Taught on | Topic: The Law

Jesus' parable about the prodigal son is one of the most well-known parables from the Bible. But as we discover who Jesus' specific audience was, we learn that the son's warm welcoming by his father isn't the only—or even main—message Jesus was communicating. In this study of Luke 15:11-32, we learn about three types of relationships with the Father: the rebellious, repentant, and religious.

Introduction: Welcome to Calvary Albuquerque. We pursue the God who is passionately pursuing a lost world; we do this with one another, through worship, by the Word, to the world.

Pastor Nelson Walker: Let's pray. Father, we ask that you would, this night, open our eyes, our hearts, our minds, our ears to behold the heighth and the depth and the breadth and the width of your love in Christ Jesus, for it is in his name we ask, amen.

As you're turning to Luke 15, I would like to give you some Will Rogers wisdom: "There are two theories to arguing with women, [laughter] neither works. [laughter] Never miss a good chance to shut up. If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging. There are three kinds of men: some who learn by reading, some who learn by doing, and others who just have to touch the electric fence to find out for themselves. [laughter] Good judgment comes from experience, but a lot of experience comes from bad judgment. Letting the cat out of the bag is a whole lot easier than trying to put him back in." And this was the one that applies to tonight. He said, Will Rogers: "I've spent a lot of time hanging out with good religious people, so I think I understand why Jesus preferred tax collectors and sinners." [laughter]

It's funny but it's sad, isn't it? Tonight we are going to look at tax collectors, sinners, and good religious people. Three different possible relationships with God the Father all described in one parable by Jesus. There's the rebellious relationship, the repentant relationship, and the religious relationship. So I'm going to start with Luke chapter 15 verse 11 and we will look at the rebellious relationship. Here's the point: the rebellious relationship wants the things of the Father, but does not want the Father. "I want your blessing, but I don't want you in my life." So we start reading: "Then Jesus," speaking a parable, "said: 'A certain man had two sons. And the younger of them said to his father, "Father, give me the portion of goods that falls to me." So the father divided to them his livelihood.

"'And not many days later, the younger son gathered everything together, took off, and journeyed to a far country and there wasted all of his possessions with prodigal living. But when he had spent all, there arose a severe famine in that land, and he began to be in want. And then he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country, and he sent him into the field to feed swine [to feed pigs]. And the prodigal son would gladly have filled his stomach with the pods that he fed to the swine, and no one gave him anything.' "Before talking too much about the prodigal, I want to talk about sin. What is sin? What's the nature of sin? Where did it come from? Did it come from humanity or did it come from the heavenlies? Because sin didn't start with man. The nature of sin is selfishness.

Let me put it this way: "It's all about me." We don't like people to tell us what to do. Have you ever seen a "wet paint" sign, "Wet Paint Don't Touch"? Uh-hum, how many of you touched? I gotcha. How about this one? Have you ever seen a sign that said "Speed Limit"? [laughter] "I'd like to---don't tell me what to do!" And it is all about me. Have you ever been in a group picture and somebody showed it to you? Who do you look for first? [laughter] Because, you know, everyone else can look good, but if I blinked, it is not a good picture. You know what I'm talking about because you do the same thing. I could look good, everybody else blinked---it's a good picture. [laughter] It's all about me. Where did this come from? Well, it started with Lucifer. So let's back up before we look at the prodigal.

When God created the heavens and the earth, it says in Job 38:7 that these sons of God, these angels shouted for joy. Lucifer was created before. The angels were created before. And God describes Lucifer in Ezekiel 28. He said, "You were the absolute seal of perfection, full of wisdom, perfect in beauty. You walked in Eden, the garden that God planted. And you were the anointed cherub who covers." That means that where God had his throne, he was the angel that hovered above the throne, the closest to God leading all the other angels in worship. "The most perfect, beautiful of all the angelic beings hovering above the throne of God; I established you. You were on the holy mountain of God hovering above God. You were perfect in all your ways. That's the way I have created you, until iniquity was found in you and you sinned."

What was the iniquity? Selfishness. Isaiah 14 says, "How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer. Son of the morning! For you said in your heart: 'I will ascend into heaven. I will exalt my throne above the stars of God. I will rule from the throne. I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, and I will be like the Most High.' Therefore you've been cast down to hell." And Jesus said, "I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven." You see, basically what Satan said is, "It's all about me." John Milton wrote a series of books called Paradise Lost, and in volume one it says at this point that Satan is cast out of heaven. He's screaming back, "I would rather rule in hell than serve in heaven!" Have you ever raised a little boy? Grrrr! [laughter] That's right, I am looking at you. [laughter] My son's in the front row. I had to get that dig in.

Okay, so the problem is that hell was created for the devil and his angels and it's a place of everlasting punishment, not a place of rulership. His arrogance---"I want to be number one." So sin starts in the heavenlies, then he goes, Lucifer, to the garden and Adam and Eve are there. And God had told Adam, "You can have anything. I made it, I give it to you. Just don't eat from that true." Adam's like, "What tree?" "That one." "This one? Don't eat from this tree? This one here?" Because they made their camp at that tree. Eve takes when Lucifer comes and says, "Oh, I know God said you're going to die if you eat from that, but you're not going to die, just go for it." Eve says, "Okay. Adam, here." Like men we just---"Okay." You don't want to make the wife upset, you know, because if mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy.

So, Adam eats and they die instantly. So what is death? Death is separation. At the moment the relationship between God and humanity was cut so that all born from Adam after that are born out of relationship with God. We are self-centered, not God-centered. That was the death. One of the reasons Jesus was born of a virgin, by the way, was this way he did not descend directly from Adam. The relationship was not kept. We are all born separated from God. Separated from self---immediately Adam is ashamed, gets fig leaves, covers up. Separated from each other---immediately he's going, "It's the woman's fault!" Separated from nature---thorns and thistles. There are two more separations coming. "It is bourne unto man once to die, and then comes the judgment." Our inner being, soul, spirit, separates from our body.

And there's one possible separation for those who have not received Jesus Christ as their Savior, when they enter the judgment they are told, "Depart from me, you who are cursed and work iniquity, into the lake of fire that was not created for you but for the devil and his angels." Sin is about self. It's all about me. Death is separation. That's why God mercifully allows man to die, by the way. As soon as man died spiritually, God put an angel in the garden and said, "Don't let him eat of the tree of life, because if he does, he'll live forever in this state." Angels can't be saved; they made an eternal choice. We pass through death. God doesn't want any of us to perish. He put eternity in our hearts to call us home. He declares his righteousness in the heavens in Psalm 19.

He put his witness in the heart of every man, and if we don't know God, it's not because we don't know him, it's because we deny him and we suppress him in unrighteousness. Everybody knows God is there. Everybody has that call. Jesus said, "If I'm lifted up, I'm going to draw all men to me." Jesus said, "I'm going to send the Holy Spirit." "He will convict all men of sin, righteousness, and of judgment." It's not a lack of knowledge, it's because we're selfish and we don't want to serve God, and God will honor our choices. But for those who receive Jesus as their Savior there's a promise: "When this perishable dies and puts on the imperishable, and this mortal puts on the immortal," in First Corinthians 15, "then will come about the saying that says, 'Death has been swallowed up in victory.' 'O Death, where is your sting?' O grave, where is your victory?' The sting of death is sin."

But if I'm born again, I pass from this life into eternal joy. The sting of death is gone. Death is something to look forward to, not to try to bring about, but it's a release. So it's God's mercy. Everybody lives forever, but there are two destinations: one is heaven, one is hell. But everybody lives forever. So what is sin? It is putting self-first. Now we think about sin like doing all the bad stuff, you know, going out there and killing and maiming and burning and stealing. Sin is bad stuff, you know. That's really not the answer. Sin is putting anything in the place of God. I could take something good, like I want to work, take care of my family, provide things. And so I throw myself into my work and make a good living and I provide for my family and they have good stuff.

But I'm never home and my kids never knew they had a father, because I would never spend time. My wife never had a husband to hang out with, because I was so busy working. That's a good thing, but I made it the ultimate thing. It's not sin the way we see sin. Sin is replacing God. Let's go back to the first of Ten Commandments: "I am the Lord God who brought you out of Egypt. You will have no other gods before me." "Jesus, what's the greatest commandment?" "Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength, and your neighbor as yourself." The nature of sin is to replace God with something else. Now, we could wind up and go out and do a whole bunch of bad stuff, but you know, there are a lot of good people out there that are just as lost as the bad people.

That's why it says, "The wages of sin [singular] is death." We are separated. Am I a good person? I throw myself into education---that's great. But I spend no time training others---that's bad. I throw myself into making a living---great. But I spend no time with my family---bad. I throw myself into physical fitness---that's good. But I spend no time in fellowship with others---that's bad. I have replaced God with something else. Anytime I do that, I have failed the greatest commandment, to love God. So let's get back to this. You've got the rebel son, "'A certain man had two sons. And the younger said to his father, "Give me the portion of goods that fall to me." '" Let's back up. In this culture, farming, agrarian culture, number one, the dad is boss. You must respect your elders.

Disrespected elders could even bring the death penalty if it was bad enough. You must respect your elders, that's one, or you're going to shame the family. The other is: their wealth wasn't so much because of money in the bank, but because of the amount land that they owned, the amount of crops they had, the amount of livestock. And a lot of their wealth was in their clothes. Most people didn't have more than one coat or one jacket or one cloak. Their wealth was with them. They might have had some coinage, but for the most part it was land, crops, livestock, clothing. So when he says, "Give me the portion," he's saying, publicly sell off the stuff that tells everybody you are the leader in the community that you are the man, publicly do so, convert it to cash.

"Father, give me that of your livelihood." "And not many days after, the younger son gathered it together," it's converted to cash, "journeyed to a far country, and wasted his possessions in prodigal living," basically, wine, women, and song, party down, live like there's no tomorrow. "When he had spent it all, there arose a severe famine in that land, and he began to be in want." The money didn't last forever. The stuff he chased was empty. The people who were his friends ran out when the money ran out. And now he's sitting there in want and he joins himself to a man who sends him to feed pigs. You know, pigs were the most unclean animal for the Jew. This is a man---as Jesus is telling the story to a Jewish audience---who shamed the family. It's so bad he should have been killed.

Ran out on the family, lived a bad life, which would have broken all the laws of Moses, and then lived with pigs in constant contact with the most unclean animal. For the Jewish people, they're looking at this guy---have you ever seen the old movies, you got the black hat and the white hat? Jesus hand painted, you know, the Darth Vader guy. He's all black. He is bad news and should be cast off. That's the picture Jesus painted. And no one gave him anything. You know, your party friends, when you run out, let's see who shows up. I used to visit some of the prisons, and one of the things we'd ask is, "How many of your gang friends come down here and say hi to you now that you're here?" Your party friends ran out. So the rebellious relationship wanted the things of the father, but not the father.

And he ran out and he wound up completely isolated from the father and destitute, which leads us to the repentant relationship. It begins in verse 20. "'But when he came to himself, he said, "How many of my father's hired servants have bread enough to spare, and I perish with hunger!" '" Two types of servants: the household servants lived there, kind of in the bunkhouse, and the hired servants were seasonal. They came in when the crops needed to be planted or harvested. They didn't live there all year. He wasn't even think thinking close household servant; he was thinking the one you just hire at certain seasons when you need more people to pick crops or plant crops. "How many of them have food enough to spare, and I perish with hunger!"

I want you to notice this. He's not thinking, "My father's all good and I am all bad." He's not repenting. He basically says, "I'm hungry! Where's dad?" You know, sometimes God will let us fall down until we look up, you know. Anybody know what I'm talking about? Sometimes God will let us come to the end of our rope and cry for help. What kind of hunger do I have? Relationships that are broken? We're in an economic downturn, are you having financial problems? Are there health issues? "I'm hungry!" I found that I pray a lot when I am in need. Do you do that? And I'm real good---when things good wrong, my prayer life goes up. It shouldn't be that way, but I'm being honest. The worse life gets, the more time I pray. Would to God that I would pray more without life getting bad, but that's the way it is.

So he's hungry. " ' "I will arise," ' " he says, " ' "and go to my father, and will say to him" ' "---okay, he's got to practice this speech, you know, because I know that my father should kill me, but let's practice this speech. " '"Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you, and I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Make me like one of your hired servants." '" "I don't even want to live in the house. I don't even want to live in the bunkhouse. I'll live out in the countryside and come in seasonally." "'And he arose and he came to his father. But when he was still a great way off' "---I want to pause there for a moment. God said, "All who seek me will find me." I want you to know that he didn't get cleaned up. His clothes probably looked pretty ragged. He probably didn't have a decent haircut and a decent shave.

I mean, the guy's coming from pigs, and pigs don't live in the cleanest environment. He's coming back looking pretty bad, but he's coming back. "'And his father sees him a long way off,' " which means the father was watching. It's not that he had to clean himself up to get home, he just had to say, "I want to come home." He didn't have to get everything all fixed, he just had to turn in the right direction. "'And the father saw him a long way off and,' " second, " 'and had compassion on him.' " For any of you who are parents, when that little one---or you work with children, when you see the little one fall down and they skin their knee and they're crying, your heart breaks with them, you know. The father saw him and just had compassion. It wasn't, "Look what he did!" It was like, "My son, he's hurt." It was a cry of love. "My son!"

"'Compassion, and he ran.' "Men don't run there. For the older man to run was a disgrace. You sit and let them come and bow before you. You're the patriarch. They need to give you honor and respect and bow down before you. Running? That's wrong. But, you see, if anyone else had seen the son, they had the right to go chase him off. They had to right to say, "Don't even come near here." The father intervened. "No one's going to stop him from coming to me." "'And he ran and he fell on his neck and he kissed him.' ""All who seek me will find me, if they seek me with their whole heart," says God. And the son started giving his practiced speech. "'"Father, I have sinned against you. I've done---father . . ." ' " His practiced speech, you know, because "I'm hungry. I'm just---I just want food. So I'm going to give my speech."

The father doesn't even let it happen. "'But the father said to his servants, "Bring the best robe." '" You know, when you come to Christ, it's not because your clothes are clean. But it says that "He made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin, that we would be clothed in the righteousness of Christ," that we'd be the righteousness of Christ in him. "'"Put the best robe on him, put the ring on his finger." '" The ring was kind of the family emblem that you sign documents with. It's like, put him in charge, give him a place of honor. "'"Put sandals on his feet," ' " a little pause here. Whenever there's sin, someone has to pay the debt. "I don't know why God can't just forgive?" No. Someone has to pay the debt. This man had lost part of his farm, some of his animals, probably had to sell off some clothing.

His family name had been dishonored. He had been disrespected. He had been shamed in the community. There's a debt to pay. Now, either that young boy had to come back and pay it, or looks like the father paid the debt for him, doesn't it? That's why Jesus died. I can't pay my debt. But if I turn and I want to head back, he'll clothe me in Christ's righteousness, he'll give me the authority to be his son, because he paid the debt. "'"And bring the fatted calf," ' " not a fatted calf, "the fatted calf." I'm into barbecue. "'"Bring the fatted calf, kill it, and let us eat and be merry; for this son of mine who was dead," ' " separated, separated, " ' "is alive." '" We're back in union. Jesus, John 17, "Father, I would that these would have eternal life. And this is life eternal, that they would know you through your Son whom you have sent."

Death is separation; life is union. "My son was dead. He was separated. He is now united. Let's party down!" Actually it says, "'"Let's begin to be merry." '" But it's, party! What's the nature of repentance? Because that's what the son did. First is, I have to agree that God is right. He said, "I'm a sinner," and then, "I need salvation." I have to agree with that. "The Lord's hand is not short, that he cannot save; his ear is not deaf, that he cannot hear. But my sins have separated me from him." I have to agree with that. I'm a sinner. I can't save myself. Someone's got to pay the debt. So I agree. But, secondly, the nature of repentance is I have to accept that I'm a sinner and I need salvation---not man's a sinner---I'm a sinner, and I need salvation. It's gotta be personal.

But these two steps make me about as good as a demon, because it says, "The demons believe." You say you believe in God? That's good, the demons believe. They probably got better theology than I do. They probably know the Bible better than I do too, huh? They believe. They really believe. They knew who Jesus was: "We know who you are---O Son Of God! Don't cast us into the pit. Please! Not yet." They believe. I hear a lot of people say, "I believe." But there's a third part of repentance: I have to act on it. It's not so much that I feel sorry or that I apologize or that I shed tears or that I promise to do better, it's that I throw myself down on the mercy of God and say, "I will follow you." Real belief is what's called repentance. "Repentance" means to do an about-face and turn around.

The son was living with the pigs. He agreed that his father was better. He agreed with the---and it was better for him. His father had a better house and it would be a better house for him. But it wasn't until he came home that he got the benefits. So I need to check my belief. I can know all the stuff. Jesus said that there will be "many people who come to me in that day and say, 'Lord, Lord, didn't we do many mighty works in your name? In your name we healed the sick. We cast out demons. We raised the dead, Lord." And Jesus will say, "Depart from me, you who are cursed and work iniquity; I never knew you." This wasn't someone who lost their salvation, it's someone who was never saved. They believed, they did stuff, they taught the Word, they saw Jesus do great things, just like Judas Iscariot.

But they never followed him. They never surrendered. H'm. So the rebellious relationship wants the things of the father, but not father. The repentant relationship driven by personal selfishness---because after all, it is about me---still wants the things of the father. "I want a good house, you know, and I want this and I want that. So I'm going to come home." But, you know, the Father gives me so much more. He saves me. But the real issue here is the religious relationship beginning in verse 25. Jump up to verse 1. "Then all the tax collectors," those are the bad people, "and the sinners," the bad people, "were"---notice this drawing, constant drawing, "drawing near to Jesus to hear him," crowds. You know, these are the scum of society. These are the outcasts. These are the ones you stay away from.

These are the ones when they're nearby, you make sure your car door is locked and run in the other direction. These are the bad people. These are the people you don't want in your neighbor. They were the ones that Jesus attracted, and they were coming to him. Okay, so, they're drawing near, "And the Pharisees and the scribes complained, saying, 'This Man receives sinners and eats with them.' So he spoke a parable to"---who? What does it say?---"to them." This parable wasn't about the prodigal son, it was about the religious son. So let's take a look at the religious son. Verse 25, "'now his older son was in the field. And as he came and drew near to the house, he heard the music and the dancing.' "Now they don't have iPods. They don't have all that stuff.

These guys, these guys brought musicians in. I mean, this is live band type stuff. There's a party going on. The cow is being cook. Yeah! The music is playing. Party time! "'He called to the servants and said, "What do these things mean?" And the servant said to him, "Your brother has come, and because he has been received safe and sound, your father has killed the fatted calf." But the older brother got angry and refused to go in.' "Wow, that's nice." 'Therefore the father came out and pleaded with him.' "O my goodness, this is the same type of shame. You come to the father, you bow before him, you reverence him. You want to talk to me, you come to me. What was the attitude? You don't disrespect your father publicly like that, make your father beg you.

That's just as disrespectful as the younger brother. He's angry. The father's pleading. "'And the older brother answered and said to his father, "These many years I have slaved for you; I never transgressed your commandment at any time; and you never gave me [the fatted calf] or the young goat that I might make have a party with my friends. But as soon as this son of yours" ' "---not saying "my brother," you know. I mean, my wife pulls this out on my sometimes: "Your son . . ." [laughter] Okay, okay. "'"As soon as this son of yours came, who has devoured your livelihood with harlots, you killed for him the fatted calf." The father said, "Son, you are always with me, all that I have is yours. He was dead, he's alive." ' "

"We should party down!" And then Jesus didn't finish the story. He said, "The end." These religious leaders go, "Whoa, whoa, whoa! What happened? What's going on?" You see, this was a call to them. Have you ever not finished a story? I would wake up my daughter by not finishing stuff. I would open the door and say, "Hey, hey, hey, it's time to get up. [singing] O say can you---" You know, the brain can't handle that. [laughter] She's trying to go back to sleep, [singing] ". . . see, by the dawn's . . . Dad, I hate you!" No, it's---she doesn't---[laughter] He didn't finish the story because they had to think about it. What are you going to do? The religious relationship, they wanted the things of the father, but they didn't want the father either. It's just as selfish, but it's more blind.

So I asked myself a question: How do I know what I'm slipping into religion? Because, you know, that's easy for me. I've got five things. When am I becoming religious? Number one: anger toward God. You know, "God owes me. I've been good. I slave for him. I mean, I served him in Sunday school. I worked with the toddlers. I mean, come on, that counts for something. And he let this happen to me? How dare he!" And I get angry with God because I served him and he didn't do what I wanted him to do. Religion---"I slave for you"---anger toward God. Two: superiority toward others. You know, "He's just scum. He's not as holy as I am. I don't think he's reading his Bible as much or prays as much. How dare God bless him more than me. He got the promotion? She got the promotion? Who do they think they are?

"They shouldn't even be here with people like us. They smell bad. They look bad. They probably slept on the street. How dare they come in here and dirty up our nice, beautiful stuff." Anger toward God, superiority toward others. "This son of your came home, I'm not even going near him. He's not worth it. Prodigal, hung out with harlots." You hear it? I'm serving God more out of fear than love. There's this idea, you know, that I'm never good enough. God loves them, but he only tolerates me. It's kind of like---have you ever been working and the boss came in the room? You know, you start to work harder and you're kind of watching the boss out of the corner of your eye. And if the boss looked over and went like this, "Sigh," and walked off, how would you feel?

Okay, that's I'm serving God out of fear. I'm serving God because I don't want to get in trouble. I'm serving God, not out of love. Well, that's what the older brother was doing. "If I don't serve you, you're not going to give me the fatted calf." Anger, superiority, slavish service. "And I don't really believe in the Father's love. Oh, yeah, I could talk about it, but my picture of the Father is that he's usually just waiting for me to mess up one more time so he could kick me to the curb, because I really am not good enough, and he's usually pretty fuming. He just doesn't blow up all the time, because he doesn't want to kick me to the curb while they're watching. I mean, I'm really not loved. Well, he has to love me because he said so, but he doesn't like me."

And I start to see this in my prayer life. The first indicator is when I pray, is it about adoring and worshiping, or is it about gimme, gimme? What's my prayer life? Now, we are to pray for all things. We are supposed to "ask for everything with prayer and thanksgiving." But we have this prayer request list and a very low praise list. I'm getting into religion when it's all about me getting my way and not about me worshiping him. I'm getting into religion when I'm angry because I didn't get what I thought I deserved. I'm getting into religion when I am superior to those other people, because, you know, they're not as good as me. You know what I'm saying? You know, those other denominations also, you might as well throw them under the bus. They're not good like me.

I'm getting into religion all kinds of stuff anger towards God, superiority toward others, slavish service, doubt the Father's love. You know, Paul struggled with that. Paul the apostle struggled with that. Paul said in Philippians, "If anyone thinks that they have confidence in the flesh," in the ability to be religious and earn God's favor, he says, "I more than you." It's like, "I'm more humble than you. I was circumcised the eighth day. I was a stock of Israel. I'm of the tribe of Benjamin. I'm a Hebrew of Hebrews. Concerning the law, I was a Pharisee." In other words, "I'm top dog." "Concerning zeal, I persecuted the church; concerning"---I love this part---"the righteousness which is in the law, I was blameless." It was like, "Dude, you're like---touch your robe, man. That is awesome!"

He said, "But all those things that I thought caused God to owe me," he said, "that I thought was gain, all those things that I thought made God owe me" he said, "they were nothing. It was nothing more than refuse. God owes me nothing." And so Paul would say, "Therefore, after I preached the gospel, I beat myself under subjection, lest I be cast away." Why, because you have a problem with the Ten Commandments? "No. I'm blameless. I'm religious. I'm used to saying they're second-class saints. I'm used to putting them down. I'm used to hanging out with my own." Paul struggled with that. One of the churches he planted struggled with it.

In Galatians, "O you foolish Galatians!" he writes, "Who has bewitched you? Before whose eyes Jesus Christ was crucified so evidently. This only will I ask you: Did you receive salvation by the hearing of faith, or by earning it through the works of the law? If you were saved by faith, why are you trying to perfect yourself through religious works?" Oh, what happened there? The solution to both the rebellious and the religious is repentance. Jesus told another story: "Two men went up to the temple to pray, one was a Pharisee, the other a tax collector. The Pharisee stood and prayed thus within himself, 'God, I thank you that I am not like other men---extortioners, unjust, adulterers, even like this tax collector over here. I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all I possess.'

"And the tax collector went a long way off, and hung his head to the ground and beat his breast and said, 'Father, be merciful to me a sinner!' "And Jesus said, "That man was justified." H'm, what's my prayer life? How am I doing? "For by grace are you saved through faith, not of yourselves; it's a gift of God." Do I begin by faith and try to perfect myself through works? Am I angry with God? Superior toward others? Feel like God doesn't love me, doesn't really care? See, it's not the degree of sin, it's not that I---unlike the Pharisee---it's not like I'm a prodigal doing all the bad stuff. The Pharisees were living good lives. The problem isn't how bad my sin was, the problem is that God can't stand sin. How do I fix that? How do I fix religious tendencies?

By the way, is there anybody here ever struggle with those things? I just---because I'm preaching to myself here. I struggle with religion. Because I could look around here at some of you guys and go pfft! No, I'm just---[laughter] The early church struggled with this too. There was a letter written to the church of Ephesus and Jesus says, "I commend you, your works are great. You're always busy serving. Your doctrine is awesome. You even hate the deeds of the Nicolaitans, I hate that too. You're just tireless in your service. I love that." He goes, "but you got a problem. You left your first love." Somewhere along the line you got so busy serving Jesus Christ that you forgot about worshiping Jesus Christ. Somewhere along the line you got so busy doing things for God that you forgot to sit at his feet.

Somewhere along the line you thought God owed you for everything you did rather than just sitting down saying, "God, thank you, because Jesus died for me while I was still a sinner. It's not because I did anything. I brought dirty clothes home, he gave me other clothes. He didn't dip them in mud, he gave me the good stuff." So, how did Jesus say to fix religion? He said, "Remember, repent, and redo." I was saved many years ago when the dinosaurs roamed the earth. [laughter] And I was in the military. And though I had grown up and been exposed to different good things, I had also been exposed to a lot of bad things. And having been in the military, I was exposed to some bad things many people aren't exposed to. And let's just say I crossed some lines. You know what I'm talking, crossing lines?

You can be a good person and cross lines. You don't have to cross the same physical line, but you know you crossed a line. You disappointed God. You didn't live for God. You were raised in a Christian home, and you looked good outwardly, but you still crossed lines, you know it. I crossed some lines and somewhere in there God saved me. I didn't deserve it. I knew who I was. I was ashamed of who I was. But, you know, you put on the front, you know, "I'm all good." I wasn't. I was hurting inside. I was lost. I knew it. But God saved me. And I can remember, I called this the honeymoon. For the next few weeks every night lying on my rack, because they don't have beds in the military. They're racks, like torture things. Lying on my rack I would just stare up at night and say, "You saved me, me. I know who I am. You love me. Jesus died for me. Wow!"

It was the honeymoon phase. And I would just sit and adore him. And then I started learning the Bible. And then I started serving in church. And then I got so busy serving I forgot worship. And Jesus said, "Remember the honeymoon." Here's another story: Jesus in Bethany, home. Lazarus, Mary, Martha, they're all there. Jesus sitting and he's talking. The disciples are sitting around. Lazarus was there. Mary's sitting there. Martha is the person saying "Oh no! We have guests. Oh, oh!" And she's cleaning the house. Do you ever have guests drop in? What if Skip came to your house? "Hey, I'm here." So she's running around, she's cleaning the house, and she's banging the pots and pans. Finally, she goes, "Jesus!" Can you imagine that?

"Jesus, Jesus, will you just hush a moment? Now listen, I'm doing all this work"---good, religious girl here. "I'm doing all this work---" it's not bad work. We need to cook dinner. We need to clean the house. "I'm doing this work, Mary is just sitting there! Tell her to come help me." "Oh, Martha, Martha, you're so weighted down, so worried about all these trivial things. For the moment, Mary chose the best part." Religion or relationship? Now I still have to clean the house; it just wasn't time. I still have to make dinner; it just wasn't time. It was time to hang with Jesus. So, that's the honeymoon phase. So I'm going to give you a homework assignment. Are you ready for it? If you're rebellious, you're going to go burn in hell forever. [laughter] I say that, but it's true.

Your job tonight is to turn around and say, "My clothes are dirty and I'm hungry and I want to come home." If you're a good religious person who doesn't know the Lord, your job is to turn around and come home. But if you're like me, you love the Lord, but your biggest problem is yourself---my biggest problem is me. I always get caught up in all stuff. I'm a Martha, you know, pots and pans and banging stuff. "Jesus, tell them to come help me! They're not working as hard as I am. They're not doing the stuff I do. Look at them!" Angry. Superior. If you're like me, we're going to do the same thing that Jesus told that church in Ephesus, "You're doing all the good stuff, but you forgot, you forgot to love me. I love you so much. You just forgot to love me." He says, "Remember the honeymoon?"

So here's a question. Let's stop for a moment. This is part of the homework. Do you remember the honeymoon? Huh? You remember it? You remember the honeymoon? Some of you could have been Christians all your life in a Christian home, but there was a honeymoon where you just said, "Oh my goodness. God showed up." You know what I'm talking about? Do you remember the honeymoon? Remember that? You'd just sit in awe. Remember. Repent. "I'm too busy." You know, lots of marriages fall apart because we get into life and then we don't hang out anymore. Cars fall apart because we don't change the oil. Marriages fall apart because we don't spend time investing in them. Religion creeps in when I forget the honeymoon. Remember. Repent.

Now, we're going to sing a worship song here in few minutes, and let's just redo that. Remember how worship was so sweet? Now, I can sing the songs and be thinking about football scores, whether or not my team drafted the people I wanted. But I can remember just---just I'd get lost. I would encounter God every time I came to church and say, "Oh, wow!" Now, I can go through the motions and look good. Remember, remember the honeymoon. Repent. Refocus. Redo the honeymoon. Can you do that? So you're going to do that tonight. We're going to close in worship in a few minutes, but when you go home tonight, I want you to take your prayer list---it's probably got all kinds of good stuff on it like: "Please save this person, and help this person . . ." And it's probably a good prayer list.

And we are to pray, the Bible says "in everything by prayer." But, you know, I want you to take that prayer list and I want you to [tosses list aside]. I am just going to sit here and worship you. You saved me, and I know who I am, but you saved me." That'll still be there tomorrow. So your homework---you got it?---you're homework: we're going to worship the Lord, and you're going to go home and you're going to set your prayer list down, and you're going to worship God tonight. Can you do that? Because I gotta break out of this religion stuff, man, it's ugly. I hate it when I'm angry all the time. I hate it when I'm always feeling superior to others. I'm walking around thinking like the other shoe is going to drop because everyone's going to find out the truth and God's really mad.

He just hasn't opened it up for other people to see yet. I just need to go back and say, "You saved me?" Because the Scripture said, "If Christ died for us while we were sinners, how much more now that we are his children will he not freely bless us with more." Yeah, yeah. Father, thank you for loving us. Thank you for your Son who died for us while we were sinners. Forgive us, Lord, because we default to being religious. We are descendants of the religious, because we're so self-centered. And, yet, Lord, you have numbered the hairs of our head. Every thought toward us is only good continuously. If we could number the sands of the sea, they're not as great as your thoughts towards us. Your loving-kindness is new every morning. God, what is not to praise?

Lord, I want to be Mary tonight, I want to sit at your feet and worship you, and I want to put down the pots and the pans. They'll be there tomorrow. Help me tonight, Lord, to remember my honeymoon and go back there and just hang out with you and adore you. And if you're here tonight and you're rebellious, today is the day of salvation. Today if you hear his voice, don't harden your heart. I'm going to ask---is there anyone here that's been running and you're ready to surrender? Because God loves you. If so, while we're praying, heads are bowed, would you raise your hands or hand? Just say, "Oh, yeah, I am ready to come home. I'm done running." God bless you and you. God bless you, yes. "I'm done running. I'm tired of the pigs stuff. I am ready to surrender."

Okay. As we sing this final song I'm going to ask you who said, "Yes, Lord," just like the prodigal walked home, would you walk up here to the front to say, "Father, I surrender." We will pray together. So, in Jesus' name, amen. Let us stand. While this song is playing, those who raised their hands, please, just walk to the Father, he loves you. He loves you so much. [applause] [worship music plays] Come, come, come. Thank you, thank you. God isn't angry with you. God loves you. He sent his Son to die for you. He wants to call you home. He wants to put the new robe on you. [applause] Come to the Father's love. We're going to pray. Now prayer is just talking to God. It's nothing special or magical. I want to say some words just like a pastor would if they were doing a marriage ceremony and the couple repeats them.

But you're not praying to me, you're saying, "God, I'm tired, I just want to come home. Okay, Father, I've run away, I've rebelled, I'm a sinner." And if you'd just repeat those words to him: Father, I'm tired. I've run away. I've rebelled. I've sinned. And, yet, you love me and you're watching for me to come home. Thank you for sending Jesus to create that way for me to come. He paid my price, he died for me, and you're going to give me his goodness. I surrender. Save me, run to me, embrace me, have compassion on me, and kiss me, in Jesus' name, amen. [cheers and applause] For those who have come forward, Jarrett is going to give you a Bible. He just wants to bring you over here, give you a few items.

And for those who are here, may the Lord bless you and keep you, may the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you. May the Lord lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace. And unto him who is able to keep you from falling, and to present you before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, to the only wise God, our Savior, to him be glory, honor, dominion, and power, now and forever, amen. Begin the honeymoon. [applause]

Closing: What binds us together is devotion to worshiping our heavenly Father, dedication to studying his Word, and determination to proclaim our eternal hope in Jesus Christ.

How Jesus prays for us
John 17
Bill Holdridge
Info
Message Summary
Ever wonder why or how Jesus prays for us and that if we know He does, how should we really be acting and thinking? Our guest speaker Pastor Bill brings out the vital points of prayer teaching how Jesus prays for us. The Apostles and Disciples hear the beautiful words of their master as Jesus speaks to His Father about us. As we hear and read the prayers of Jesus we must never forget that Jesus is full of thoughts of us and He will be praying for those who love him. So, do you want to know what Jesus prays for you?

Senior Pastor Tom Stipe of Crossroads Church in Denver brings us a vital message from the book of ACTS concerning our approach in preaching the gospel and uses Paul as the example of how a single man brought the gospel to folks in his sphere of influence. Pastor Tom challenges us to not be afraid or have fear when we do preach the gospel. Are you willing to step out and be confronted by the public, friends or loved ones? God did through Jesus, so why not you?

Who among us has not failed? Who among us can truthfully say I can make it on my own? The Israelites failed and walked in disobedience, but God used and allowed circumstances to bring His people back to a place of worship.

Love Never Fails
1 Corinthians 13
Dave Row
Info
Message Summary
Is it true that All you need is love? The rock group The Beatles seemed to think so, Paul the Apostle thought so, and you should also think so. Love is what God is all about, for love is the very nature of God. Pastor Dave Row speaks to us about love, what it is, and what it is not. Pastor Dave shares from the book of I Corinthians, Chapter 13, breaking down the elements of love. If there is one thing you can count on concerning love, it is that Love Never Fails. Pastor Row presents three aspects of love that we should know, including The Significance of Love, The Substance of Love, and The Superiority of Love.

Psalms 46
Don McClure
Info
Message Summary
God tells us to be still and to know that He is God. Do you rest in Him when the storms come, or do you run to the confines of your mind to figure things out? David knew God and the peace and rest that can be found in Him. Pastor Don McClure reminds us of a different world where we should dwell as we grow in our understanding of the things God would have us to do in times of trouble. Psalm 46:10 tells us to be still and know that He is God. Are you too busy to know God on a deep level or do you dwell in the throne room of your Lord and receive His strength for your refuge? God has a plan for you and it can only be for good. Step into His world and know Him.

In Psalm 51, David speaks about how God will use a contrite and broken heart. Pastor Chip Lusko brings insight into this Psalm as we hear how brokenness forms a beauty that God delights in.

Message Summary
News media resources count on names such as "Eyewitness News" or "Action News" because these names say something about their mission. Have you been faithful to repeat what you have seen or heard about Jesus Christ? The Book of 1 John gives us keen insight into the heart of John as Pastor Dave Rowe elaborates on the writings of John from the perspective of joy. Pastor Dave challenges us to seek this joy by telling others about Jesus. So, as you share about Jesus, notice that your joy becomes complete.

Can light and darkness join as one? Can God take away our darkness and bring us into the glorious light? The Apostle John writes in 1 John that God is light and in Him there is no darkness at all.

Does God Speak Today?
Psalms 19
Scott Richards
Info
Message Summary
Does God really speak to us? If so, how does this happen? If it does happened, how do I know what He's saying? These are good questions and a young King David learned the answers to these questions in God's outdoor classroom. God speaks to us in a still small voice and gives us His word to confirm His love for us. You can know that God does speak to us today by becoming His child and reading His word. In these ways we can see how God leads us from glory to glory. So, how about you? Are you tuning in on the right frequency or are you still dialing through the world of stations?

Behavior vs. Bravado
1 John 2:3-11
Dave Row
Info
Message Summary
Some questions are hard to ask sometimes, especially if those questions are directed at us. Questions like "Do we really love God?", "How do we know we love God?", and "What does it look like to love God?" can really be tough. Many good men strive to do what is right, but unless we know God and we follow His commandments we do not know the truth. John writes words aimed at helping us understand the free will choice we have to make daily to love God. So, if you really want to understand what it means to have a deep love for God or to know where you stand, just listen to what John has to say to us through the Holy Spirit.

Samson - a life of Compromise
Judges 13-16
Brian Michaels
Info
Message Summary
What does it take to keep a promise or vow? Do we really understand the commitment of keeping our words? In the book of Judges Samson clearly demonstrates that he neither understood nor took seriously the instructions of his parents concerning the keeping of the Nazirite vow. We will see that compromise leads to more compromise and ultimately to our demise. But God is gracious and if we repent and turn from our evil ways God will, as He did with Samson, grant us grace. So, when you sign that paper, say those words, or make that promise…, be sure you understand what it's all about.

Permanent Love vs. Passing Lust
1 John 2:12-17
Dave Row
Info
Message Summary
As a believer, are you ready to choose between the passing pleasures of sin or staying the course even if you are called to suffer? The way you live your life is a testimony to the internal nature of your convictions. Any way that leads away from the Lord leads to destruction. This world and its destructive lusts will come to an end, but one who is continually doing the will of God has a front row seat to eternity. Where is your seat located, in the aisle of destruction or on the front row or eternity?

Jesus Christ is risen! It's not about a fancy holiday outfit, candy, or anything other than the fact that He is risen. Are you passionate about your walk with Him? Are you committed to do the things He calls you to? Considering the love He has for each one of us, the sacrifice He made for each one of us, and the depth of knowledge He has about each one of us, can we offer anything less than a passionate commitment to everything He has for us? Do you really want anything less than His best in for life? Join us for a very special Easter message by guest teacher Ryan Dobson, entitled The Power of Passion.

Info
Message Summary
Are you willing to stand up for the cross of Christ, or are you content to hear only what you want to believe? How do you know who the real believers are, and if you do recognize them are you willing to follow? John writes in 1 John 2:18-29 about how to recognize the real Christian and how to spot the false one. The marks of a true believer are clear to all as John speaks of the telltale attributes of the Holy Spirit in the believer's life. So, are you among the true believes or are you sitting in with those who really oppose the Gospel of Christ?

The Power of a Resurrected Life
Philippians 3:10
Dave Row
Info
Message Summary
What power do you know of that can raise a person from the dead and then give a promise to do the same for you? We all were dead in our sins, but through the resurrection of Christ we now have the re-birth needed to live. Paul writes to the Philippians about the Power of a Resurrected Life as part of the knowledge we need to live a life before those who do not know Jesus. Paul showed us, as Christ did, that to live is to die and to die is to live only through a resurrected life. There is power we can know only if we know the One who bore our sins and gave us eternal life. If you want to know that power, the Apostle Paul has some words for you.

The Children of God pt. 1 - Godly Living
1 John 3:1-9
Dave Row
Info
Message Summary
How would you describe the state of your family life? Is it close, comforting, and encouraging? Or is it not quite what you had always hoped for? As Christians, we are part of God's family, the family of all families. We are bathed in His love and have access to all of the benefits of being His children. But if we abandon His invitation to join this family we automatically become members of the family of sin and there simply are no benefits associated with this family. So think about which family portrait you would like to be part of – God's Family Portrait or Sin's Family Portrait.

Do you ever ask yourself when all of your hard work will finally pay off? If you are a Christian, you are on a deferred payment plan. You might be rewarded here on earth, but the real benefits are gained in heaven. Who and what are you working for today? If it's self and earthly gain, you're missing out on the best that the Lord has for you.

The Divine Code
2 Timothy 3:16-17
Dave Row
Info
Message Summary
All of us have read books and some of those books stirred our hearts but did you know that the Bible can stir your heart to know and understand the deep truths of God? In II Timothy we read that all scripture is given by the inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, correction, reproof and instruction in righteousness. Why? So that we may know how to dispel false doctrine and equip others to stand in the faith they have been given. What do you think about the word of God and do you believe that all scripture is given by the inspiration of God? Timothy writes to us by the Holy Spirit that we can know and be assured that the word of God is the Word of God…, and that's a fact you can believe and know, so get into the word and live.

The Love of God - Part 2
1 John 4:15-21
Dave Row
Info
Message Summary
What are you afraid of and why? Did you know that God says to fear not? Did you know that your past and future is in God by Jesus Christ and you have not need to fear? Perfect love casts out fear as the Apostle John writes in First John Chapter 4, if a man fears he is not made perfect in love. All of God's love is for us and in us, so if you really want to know God's love you must abide in Him and He will abide in you. Yes, God is for you and loves you completely, but, will you let Him?

Love on Display
Romans 5:6-11
Dave Row
Info
Message Summary
Do you know of anyone who would die for you? Do you know anyone that would trade their life of liberty for your life of sin and death? There is one who did all that for you, Jesus Christ is that one. The book of Romans, chapter 5 discusses the love of God and how God chooses to demonstrate it. God looked down from this Holy thrown and saw you and loved you and wanted you and sent His Son to die, all so He could have you for His own…, but you must choose that…, will you? Think about it.

Witnesses of the Truth
1 John 5:6-13
Dave Row
Info
Message Summary
Have you overcome the world? Do you know how to overcome the world? Is your family strong enough to overcome the world? The Apostle John writes in First John Chapter 5 concerning how we can know that we have overcome the world. But what is it to really do just that? John says, it is our faith in God and in His Son Jesus Christ that overcomes the world. The question here is; do you know who God is and His Son or do you just know of Him? Your family will get you through this life but only Jesus can bring you beyond this world to His Father and all of it by His love, do you want this love or will you turn and trust in your worldly family? Think about it.

A Bridge Of Hope
Mark 9:36-37
K.P. Yohannan
Info
Message Summary
How do you see you're self in the eyes of God, as little children or as one needing to become one? We all have a need to be loved and taken care of and Jesus is able to do that, Jesus told a story that is repeated in three of the four gospels about taking a child in His arms. This story is asking you to be that child and to see others as little children who are seeking a father, the Father. So, are you being taught by the Holy Spirit as a little child or are you too old for that…, think about it.

Praying 101
1 John 5:13-15
Dave Row
Info
Message Summary
Do you believe that God hears you or do you just believe God does not want to hear from you? If God hears you do you really believe God will grant what you ask of Him? The Apostle John in 1 John 5, writes to us concerning having confidence that if we ask anything in His name (Jesus) He will hear us. Is that really true? John knows it to be and so can you. God wants you to know that He is available to you anytime and for any reason…, you just have to come and ask. So, as you think about this ask God to show you and you will see that God is able to do all things for you according to His will, but it all start with meeting, asking and believing in Him.

Sin, Death and Idols
1 John 5:16-21
Dave Row
Info
Message Summary
Sin affects us all and without the knowledge of God's word we would not know sin and be lost. John writes in chapter 5 concerning sin and how we are to understand sin and its nature. Sin all started with pride in Lucifer and in the disobeying of Eve and Adam but all sin can be dealt with by one simple act…, repentance. Are you in a state of sin or are you in the loving peace and care of Christ? God calls us to be set free from sin and live free. So will you accept God's gift or grace or will you hold onto what you think is right?

Rewind, Remember, Resolve
1 John 5:18-21
Dave Row
Info
Message Summary
Abiding in Christ will keep you from the wicked one for God wants us to understand Him and know that we are born of God. Are you born of God? Can you really say, I am His and He is mine? This is the confidence we have in Christ, that Jesus died and rose again by the will of God and in this we who believe are born of God. John writes to us in 1 John 5 concerning who we are in Christ and how we can and do know that we belong to God. So, have you learned that your faith overcomes the world or are you still looking to the things of the world and its wisdom to help you overcome? Know this, God is yours, you only need to ask and receive Christ, will you?

Character in Conflict - When Motives Collide
3 John
Dave Row
Info
Message Summary
How often do you spread the news of someone you know who is walking in Christ that is having a great impact on others to the strengthening of the faith of many? In Third John the elder Apostle gives us two great examples of men who have kept the faith in unselfishness, impacting many to Christ. But John also exposes a man who thinks of himself first instead of bringing Christ to light. These people are selfish, prideful and without wisdom, from these put yourself at distance. Do you spread the faith in humility putting the light on Christ or are you keeping the praise for yourself putting light on you?

Like many of us, Manasseh was raised in a good home where he was taught who God is, and yet he chose to walk away.

Why Redeem the Time?
Ephesians 5:15-17
Raul Ries

Message Summary
We often have a pretty good grasp of how fleeting time can be. In this day and age of waxing philosophical, moral relativism, and a church that gives in to the pressures of the world, we need a firm grasp of how and why we must redeem the time. As we consider Ephesians 5:15-17, we'll be reminded that time is short—we need to be wise, walk in the light, use our minds, and understand that God has a plan for our lives.

Eternal Life: The Deepest Yearning of the Human Heart
John 17:1-5
Sean McDowell
Info
Message Summary
There are different ways of knowing. We can know "that," and have an understanding of something; we can know "how," and experience something; and we can know "personally," and have a relationship with someone. In John 17:1-5 we will dissect a portion of Jesus' prayer to His Father, before being handed over to crucifixion. In this passage we learn that Jesus' suffering and death would reveal the glory, or character of His Father, and that through His death and resurrection, we can know God. Knowing God is intimate and personal, and by studying what it is to know God, we'll understand that eternal life comes from being in relationship with the only true God.

Through this text, we learn from her sacrifice and Jesus' commendation to the heart of what we do be done in extravagant devotion to God.

Sinners in the Hands of an Angry Leader
Numbers 20:1-13
Neil Ortiz
Info
Message Summary
As a follower of Jesus, how are you representing God? In Numbers 20:1-13, the people contended with Moses and Aaron. They did not trust God and the leadership He appointed. Likewise, Moses and Aaron allowed their anger and frustration to control them. They rebelled against the Lord and misrepresented Him to the people. As we consider this text, we learn that as ambassadors for Christ, we must be gracious and submissive both in our leadership and in our following.

Josh McDowell presents to us one of the rarest scrolls in the world, called the Lodz Torah Scroll, showing us that God will always provide the means for His sacred Word to be available to His church.

How to be a Hero of Faith
Hebrews 11

In Hebrews 11, we read testimonies of men and women who demonstrated extraordinary faith. When God commanded them to do something, they obeyed. From their examples, we learn that in our weaknesses, we are made strong, faith requires courage to face difficulties, and obeying the Lord is about using the faith we have rather than the amount of faith we possess.

Your Life: an Epic Fail Compilation or an Epic Feat?
Genesis 37-50
Neil Ortiz
Info
Message Summary
Time and time again, Joseph encountered hardships that were not his doing: harsh treatment, betrayal, false accusation, and apathy. But Joseph was always mindful of God and remained obedient despite the unfairness he met. We learn it was his reverence of God that gave Him peace to get through every situation—and God raised him from a slave to the second in command over all of Egypt. His life seemed to be an epic fail, but as we study his reactions, we see how God turned his life into an epic feat.

Today, there are many who walk in darkness—even believers—but as we study 1 Peter 1:15-16, we are reminded to live honorable and holy lives for the Lord. Let's consider what Scripture says about holiness, glean from examples of strong believers who came before us, and learn about the reasons for living a holy life.

How To Live The Blessed Life
Bob Shank
Info
Message Summary
As we search the Scriptures to find out God's thoughts about generosity, we discover that we are called to make giving an integral part of our lives. Through two passages from both the Old and New Testament, we see how generosity is a call to obedience from the Lord as well as a demonstration of faith on our part. When we give generously, we become more and more like God as He blesses us, and the world can see that our God is alive and moving.

God's Building Code
Matthew 7:21-29
Nate Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
In Matthew 7:21-29, Jesus told a story about two men who had built duplicate houses, but there was one critical difference: the foundations. Jesus used this story to call out the imposters who claimed to be His followers. In this study, we are reminded that God has a building code for our lives and His Word is our blueprint. We must carefully consider if we're building on the unshakeable foundation of Jesus Christ.

Truth Defined and Described
2 John
Brian Nixon
Info
Message Summary
Up until the last several decades, the world has taught that truth exists, but we've seen the rise of relativism in our society since then. Because Jesus talked a lot about truth in the Bible, this issue should be important to believers. In this study, Pastor Brian Nixon helps us understand the world's changing definition of truth and the Bible's fixed definition of truth.

The A-Team
Matthew 10:1-4
Nate Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
When we think of the twelve apostles, we sometimes get the idea that they were an elite, holy group of men who effortlessly followed Jesus. But as we study Matthew 10:1-4, we see that almost the opposite is true. While they did have dedication in following Christ, they didn't have it all together, and they made mistakes along the way. In this message, Pastor Nate Heitzig explains how God used even this ragtag group of men to radically change the world, showing that God wants to take us as we are and transform us so we can also impact the world.

In this teaching, Brian Nixon looks at three characteristics of God's nature, and we learn how we should respond with our conduct.
