The Lost Elder Brother
Luke 15:25-32 Jesus told a parable about two lost sons, not just one.  There is more than one kind of lostness.  Though the elder brother prided himself in his goodness—as compared to his younger brother who had been openly rebellious—he actually shared some of the same bad attitudes and motivations.
  • He questions the ways of his father and his authority.
  • He is not above being openly disrespectful of his father.
  • He loved his father’s stuff more than he loved his father.
  • He is willing to fracture the unity of his family.
We see signs of lostness in the heart of the elder brother:
  • He held a deep anger.
  • His obedience was joyless and mechanical.
  • He felt disdain toward his younger brother.
  • He did not understand his father’s love.
  • He was judgmental and unforgiving.
If we identify these same signs within ourselves, we need to seek a change of heart through Jesus Christ.  Only through him do we learn to truly love, forgive and sacrifice.  Even lost elder brothers can be found!

    The Lost Younger Son
    Luke 15:11-24 The Younger Son’s Heartless Request and the Father’s Surprising Response
    • “Father, give me my share of the estate.” (v.12)
    The Younger Son’s Senseless Rebellion and the Father’s Broken Heart
    • “The younger son got together all he had, set off for a distant country and there squandered his wealth in wild living.” (v.13)
    The Younger Son’s Humble Return and the Father’s Extraordinary Reception

    The People Around Jesus
    Luke 15:1-10  Introducing “The Prodigal God” by Timothy Keller:
    • This series is a study of Jesus’ parable we tend to call “The Prodigal Son,” though a better title would be “The Loving Father” or “The Two Lost Sons.”
    • Though we think of “prodigal” as meaning wayward or rebellious, in truth it means “recklessly extravagant.” We will be looking at God’s extravagant love toward all of His lost children!
    Who were the people around Jesus in Luke 15?
    • There were the tax collectors and “sinners” who came to learn. (v.1)
    • There were the Pharisees and teachers who came to judge and criticize. (v.2)
    In his parables of The Lost Sheep and The Lost Coin, Jesus reinterprets for his audience how God responds to those who are lost. (vv. 3-10)

    Striving Toward God’s High Calling
    Series: (All)
    Philippians 3:12-14 Today is the beginning of a new year!  Rather than getting caught up in stereotypical New Year’s resolutions, why don’t we study and apply what the Bible teaches about making a new start in life?  The Apostle Paul gives us some excellent guidance in his letter to the Philippian believers. We need an attitude of humility.  “Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect…”  (v.12a)
    We need the aspiration to grow.  “...but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.” (v.12b)
    We need to keep a singular focus.  “But one thing I do…” (v.13a) We need to leave the past in the past.  “Forgetting what is behind…” (v.13b) We need to set our sight on the future God has in store!  “I press on toward the goal…” (v.14)

    A Shepherd for the Shepherds
    Series: (All)
    Luke 2:8-20 Perhaps we all tend to identify with the shepherds of the nativity story because they were just common, ordinary people like us.  It was to them that the angels first announced the birth of the Savior, sending them to find the Christ Child in a manger in Bethlehem.  Their hearts were filled with wonder, but there was much they did not yet understand about that precious baby. They didn’t know the child sleeping in a manger was also a Lamb.
    • John 1:29
    • Revelation 5:12
    They also didn’t know that he would be a Shepherd.
    • John 10:14   
    Jesus Christ is the Lamb of God sent into the world to save us from our sins.  He is also the Good Shepherd who came to seek and save us.
    Are you ready to follow him today?

    Jesus
    “She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”  — Matthew 1:21 The name Jesus speaks to the condition of the heart of every person.
    • Jeremiah 17:9 “The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure.  Who can understand it?”
    The name Jesus speaks to the compassion of the heart of God.
    • John 3:16  “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
    The name Jesus speaks to the change of heart that God makes possible.
    • 2 Corinthians 5:17  “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old is gone, the new has come!”
  • Dec 11, 2022Immanuel
    Dec 11, 2022
    Immanuel
    Matthew 1:18-25 Immanuel (or Emmanuel) means “God with us.”  This is a central promise of the heavenly Father all through the Bible!
    • God was in the Garden of Eden with Adam and Eve.
    • God was with Abraham when he traveled to Canaan.
    • God was with Joseph while in Egyptian slavery.
    • God was with Moses when he stood before Pharaoh.
    • God was with Joshua while conquering the Promised Land.
    • God was with David as he governed the nation of Israel.
    • God was with the world when He send His Son to be born in Bethlehem.
    The last promise of Jesus to his disciples before ascending into heaven was, “Surely I am with you always, even to the very end of the age.” Isn’t it wonderful to know that because Immanuel came to earth, God is with you in all your decisions, all your challenges, all your victories and defeats, all your joys and sorrows?
  • Dec 4, 2022Messiah
    Dec 4, 2022
    Messiah
    One of the most important and most common titles for Jesus in the New Testament is “Christ.”  It is the Greek translation of the Hebrew term “Messiah,” which means “The Anointed One.”
    In the Old Testament, prophets, priests and kings were often anointed with oil to illustrate their appointment to a high office.  Jesus the Messiah fulfills each of those ministries with complete perfection. Isaiah 11 is one of the many messianic prophecies found in the Old Testament.  It helps us understand at least three very important characteristics of the One sent by God to bless and to save us.
    • He is the Righteous Messiah. (11:1-5)
    • He offers Peace and Security. (11:6-9)
    • He extends an Invitation to all who are scattered and lost. (11:10-12)
    God’s Anointed One, Jesus Christ, offers you a place in His kingdom.  Won’t you accept His offer today?
  • Nov 27, 2022Son of David, Son of Abraham
    Nov 27, 2022
    Son of David, Son of Abraham
    Matthew 1:1-17 The names and titles attributed to Jesus in the first chapter of Matthew go a long way in defining his mission and ministry to a lost and hurting world.  We begin this morning by considering the significance of his genealogy.
    • The Son of Abraham
    • The Son of David
    • The Son of Zerubbabel
    • The Son of Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, Bathsheba, and Mary
    By coming into the world, Jesus related himself to all of humankind— men & women, rich & poor, Jew & Gentile, immoral & pure.  By God’s design, there is no barrier to keep any person from receiving Jesus as Savior and Lord!

    Psalm 103:1-5 The Benefit of Forgiveness (v. 3a) The Benefit of Healing (v. 3b) The Benefit of Redemption (v. 4a) The Benefit of Fulfillment (v.5a) The Benefit of Renewal (v. 5b)
