The exalted are humbled. I know it doesn’t always look that way, but it’s true! The word for exalt has the idea of something swelling in size. I suppose we picture the head of a movie star or some other celebrity that swells to twice its normal size.
The way to heaven is narrow. Although the door is narrow, it is open to all, and the saints will come from all nations to behold the glory of the Lord. Jesus is that narrow door. Join us this Sunday as we continue our series Weeks of Warning: Narrow
If you were hungry – I mean, really hungry – and you could turn stones into bread, would you? Would there be any harm? A guy has to eat! There was more to the temptations of our Lord that first meets the eye. Join us as we consider what our Lord went through so that we might be saved.
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.
