The Parable of the Rich Fool

Media, Parables of Jesus: Windows into Reality, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

Parables of Jesus: Windows into Reality

This morning we are continuing our series, The Parables of Jesus: Windows into Reality, in which we are exploring ten of Jesus’ most famous parables. Today, in the Parable of the Rich Fool (Lk. 12:13-21), Jesus invites us to consider where we believe life is found and challenges commonly held assumptions about the role of material possessions. If life does not consist in the abundance of our things then in what does it consist?

The Parable of the Good Samaritan

Media, Parables of Jesus: Windows into Reality, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

Parables of Jesus: Windows into Reality

Today, we reach the Parable of the Good Samaritan, found in Luke 10:25-37. This is one of Jesus’ best known and most loved parables but it may also be one of his most misunderstood. As we’ll see, this is not ultimately a story about showing grace to those in need, but a story that highlights our need for grace.

Media, Parables of Jesus: Windows into Reality, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

Parables of Jesus: Windows into Reality

Today, we reach the Parable of the Unforgiving Servant, found in Matthew 18:21-35. This parable contains Jesus’ major treatment on forgiveness. Living in a broken world, as a broken person, surrounded by broken people will provide ample opportunity to forgive and be forgiven. But, why should we forgive?

Today, we reach the Parable of the Soils, found in Mark 4:1-20. This parable reveals why people respond to Jesus so differently. Our response to him is dependent on the condition of the soil of our heart—and only one soil produces a harvest that will last.

Today, we reach the Parable of the Talents, found in Matthew 25:14-30. This parable is used to highlight the value of stewardship—which is good and right—but there’s much more to it than that. This parable challenges the very foundations of how we see reality and what we do with our lives.

The Gospel to the Nations

Media, Sermons | by Pastor David Parker

What is the mission of the church? What does it mean to go and make disciples? How do we do that and how does God want to use us in those endeavors? As we look at Luke 24:44-49 and answer those questions — my prayer is that we will see from Scripture, that we exist to declare and display the glory of God, through the Gospel of Jesus Christ, by living sent lives to those across the street and around the world, for the establishing and building up of His local church among the nations.

Be Holy, for I am Holy

Media, Sermons, The Pentateuch: Rescue East of Eden | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

The Pentateuch: Rescue East of Eden

Today we continue our series through the first five books of the Bible, known as the Pentateuch. This is a five-week overview series, during which we’ll spend one week on each book. Today we land on Leviticus, one of the most neglected books of the Bible. Building on Genesis and Exodus, Leviticus recounts God’s call for his newly-forged people to, “Be holy, as he is holy.” Holiness isn’t a popular topic today, but it should be. God’s holiness is not dry, lifeless, and sterile but pulsates with life, pleasure, and joy—and he invites us to share in it with him.
