The Proof is in the Pudding

Date: February 3, 2019

Bible Text: Luke 7:18-35 |

Series:

Today we are in Luke 7:18-35 (and the parallel passage in Matthew 11:2-19). Pastor Chris takes a look at what John the Baptist was expecting of the Messiah, and why he had doubts that Jesus was the Promised One. Jesus answers John’s questions by pointing back to the descriptions of the Messiah found in Isaiah 35:5-6 and 61:1-4. He is moving among the people as a teacher and a healer, and He has demonstrated His authority over life and death. Our own doubts that the Lord sees, knows and loves us, can grow when we are overwhelmed by the pain of life

Your Personal Seismology Report

Bible Text: Luke 6:37-49 |

Series:

Pastor Chris Robbins continues our series in the Gospel of Luke with a message from Luke 6:37-49. To live well, we need to take Jesus’ foundational teachings and: 1) Come to Him in trust, 2) Really “hear” His teachings, and 3) Put them into practice. As we grow in Him, we will learn to respond to others the way that God responds to us – with grace, love and mercy. It is a walk of humility before God, seeking to follow the life Jesus Christ lived before us.

From Failure to Future Glory

Bible Text: Isaiah 59-60 |

Series:

Pastor Chris Robbins teaches from Isaiah, chapters 59 and 60 today. God speaks to His chosen people through the prophet Isaiah - reminding them they are in exile because of their iniquities. (See also Psalm 137 and 2 Kings 24:2-4.) Yet these two chapters of Isaiah also hold hope: As God's people confess, repent and cry out for mercy and justice, the Lord answers with His reminder, "I am the LORD" and promises His peace, righteousness, and salvation to Israel. Both chapters are a clear picture to us as well. With humility and faith in God, we are to hate what
