NUMB3R5 Part 1: Los 33

November 17, 2014

Then the kingdom of heaven will be like this. Ten bridesmaids took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom. 2Five of them were foolish, and five were wise. 3When the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them; 4but the wise took flasks of oil with their lamps. 5As the bridegroom was delayed, all of them became drowsy and slept. 6But at midnight there was a shout, 'Look! Here is the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.' 7Then all those bridesmaids got up and trimmed their lamps. 8The foolish said to the wise, 'Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.' 9But the wise replied, 'No! there will not be enough for you and for us; you had better go to the dealers and buy some for yourselves.' 10And while they went to buy it, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went with him into the wedding banquet; and the door was shut. 11Later the other bridesmaids came also, saying, 'Lord, lord, open to us.' 12But he replied, 'Truly I tell you, I do not know you.' 13Keep awake therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour.
Matthew 25:1-13

Coming to Know a Generous God, Pt 1

September 22, 2014

Philippians 1:21–30

Key verse:For he [God] has graciously granted you the privilege not only of believing in Christ, but of suffering for him as well (v. 29)

Paul encourages the Philippians to unite – stand side by side, as one in mind and for the faith of the gospel, to not be intimidated by those who oppose them (this coming from someone in prison awaiting most certain execution for his faith in Christ).

Why should the Philippians do this?

29For he [God] has graciously granted you the privilege not only of believing in Christ, but of suffering for him as well (v. 29)

Now, here is the deal…

On behalf of Christ, God has gifted us graciously the honor and privilege of

·        A) Believing in Christ

·        B) Suffering for Christ

Sacred Conversations: Part 1, Jesus speaks to a Religious Person

March 19, 2014

John 3:1-17 Second Sunday in Lent, Sunday, March 16, 2014 Peace Lutheran, Port Ludlow, WA

What does it mean to be Born Again? It is packed with a lot of baggage, manipulating evangelists and high pressure evangelism.  But it is actually a central part of the Bible and is akin to the concept of the way of the cross: dying  and rising, dying to the old life and being a new creation in Christ.  This can be a bridge of understanding between us Mainline Christians and Evangelical Christians.  Comes with three practical, take-home ideas for sharing Christ with those who see religion as a way to climb a ladder to heaven - which is the worst sin of all! Listen today!
