Parabolic – The Two Brothers

When God asks for obedience he wants it right away, not tomorrow. The parable of the Two Sons is an illustration of what the spiritual landscape was in Jesus’ day. The common people, sinners, had fallen away from God. When John the Baptist called them to repentance, they listened. The Jewish leaders said all the right things, but they refused to repent. God’s call to repentance is just as real and urgent today as it was two thousand years ago.

VIC – Luke 19 – Palm Sunday

Jesus rode into Jerusalem on the back of a donkey. That might not look as cool as an iron clad knight striding in on a white steed, but in doing so Jesus fulfilled the promises of God. Everyone, including Jesus’ enemies knew that he was promised Messiah.

VIC – 2 Peter 3 – A Thousand Years

To the Lord a thousand years are like a day and a day is like a thousand years. Our God is eternal and timeless. Looking at 2 Peter 3 we see that one day God will end time itself when he ends the world. Despite what the scoffers might say, God is not slow. He is patient wanting everyone to come to repentance.
