Where your treasure is, there your heart shall be. I’ve misunderstood this phrase for years. It doesn’t mean – “Put your heart in the right place and then everything else will follow.” That’s not bad, but what Jesus is saying is more pointed – “Look where you put your money. That’s how you tell what’s really in your heart.” Think this is easy? Think again. Ask any teenager how hard it is to control the heart. Join us as we learn from our Lord how to turn our heart to him.
When we walk into God’s court room, how much does it take to walk away free? No amount of money can pay for our spiritual freedom, of course. What lies do we tell ourselves to walk away? In our parable there is a Pharisee and a tax collector. You’ll hear in the sermon the modern equivalent of the two parties involved.
There are plenty of scary events that come into our lives. Mary the mother of Jesus knows the feeling too. Not only was she terrified at the sight of an angel, the news the angel gave her would change her life forever. This Advent season God doesn’t want us quaking in our boots. He comes as the prince of peace for our lives. Want to find that peace? Watch!
Where ever two or three are gathered in his name, there he is with them. With these and other words we have a basic definition of the church. It is a gathering of believers around Jesus and his word. What exactly does that group look like and what should they be doing? Watch this morning and find out!
I think there are a few people in life who know exactly where they are, but at the same time, they are completely lost. Does this sound like you? This Sunday we’ll talk with two disciples who didn’t understand Easter. They knew the facts, but they couldn’t put it all together. Lost on your Easter Journey? Let Jesus show you the way!
