Matthew 5:13-15 and Luke 6:46-49 (Matthew 7:24-27) Fact: you are salt “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again?

Lord willing, we’ll be going through them in order as they appear in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. The Lord Yeshua is known for teaching in parables. Why did He teach in parables?

Chanukkah 2019: His Hidden Hand in Human History

“God works in mysterious ways!” You hear it all the time. Sometimes you hear it from people you’re pretty sure don’t even believe in God. It’s become an expression people use when things go very unexpectedly, but turn out well. It’s like saying, “Boy, I didn’t see that coming,” but since things turned out okay, you chalk it up to

The Personality-Driven Church

Kanye West has apparently gotten serious about the Lord. I was really happy to hear about it, but apparently, I underestimated how significant this was for a lot of people. For the next several weeks, it seems like it was wall-to-wall Kanye. Kanye releases a Gospel album. Kanye leads worship services. Kanye makes a guest appearance at Joel Osteen’s stadium.

Thanksgiving As A Way Of Life

We’ve heard two great messages on giving thanks, why it is important and how it is a response to God’s mercy. This morning I would like to talk about the importance of giving thanks every day to Adonai, and to those around us. Let’s begin with Luke 17:11-19, which unfortunately reveals how most human beings treat the importance of being
