Rejecting Jesus - Rejecting His Perfection

Today we begin a short Holy Week series that will look at four of the major reasons that people have rejected Jesus throughout the generations. In this study, we will see how the Bible depicts Jesus as sinless and determine how we should respond to this.

Offensive - The Woes to the Religious

Today we conclude the OFFENSIVE series by seeing Jesus be very offensive to religious people. In fact, He gives seven definitions for religious people and none of them are flattering. In this study, we want to determine that we won’t be religious but righteous.

Offensive - The Sign and The Light

Today we continue our OFFENSIVE series and see that Jesus calls the people of His generation “wicked.” He goes on to explain why that is so and then offers wisdom on how to be “full of light.”

Offensive - Beelzebub

Today we see that Jesus is starting to really irritate the religious elite with His healing and teaching.  They find Jesus, even in His compassion, to be terribly OFFENSIVE and so they call Him Beelzebub.  Jesus takes this name calling as an opportunity to teach and to declare who is…

Offensive - Prayer

Today we begin a series where Jesus seems to be intentionally OFFENSIVE to the religious people.  This four week series closes with the words, “the scribes and the Pharisees began to be very hostile.” As we look at the topic of prayer today, we will possibly see that we have been like…

Stay Focused - On His Mercy

We refer to today’s passage as ‘The Story of the Good Samaritan.’  However, this parable is not about the Samaritan’s ‘goodness,’ it is about his ‘compassion' - the mercy he shows to a person in desperate need.  We will be taught by Jesus’ story to open our hearts…

Stay Focused - On His Joy

When we last studied Luke 9, Jesus had just made a decision.  He had “set his face towards Jerusalem.”  Today, we pick back up in Luke 10 to find that Jesus sent disciples ahead of Him on His journey towards the city.  We will learn some principles about sharing our faith that apply…

Here We Stand - Participate

Our society has become less spectator and more participative in many ways.  That’s a good thing.  But, it is one of those rare things that needs to filter into the church from secular society.   Many churches have a few people who do the vast majority of the ministry.  Today we…

Here We Stand - Prepare

We continue our HERE WE STAND series today by looking at the gifts that God has given you through Christ.  Seeing these gifts helps us understand our responsibility to PREPARE ourselves to serve Him. This passage is critical to understanding Emmanuel’s heart and your responsibility as a…
