The Parable of the Soils

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

Parables of Jesus: Windows into Reality

This morning we are in the third week of our series, The Parables of Jesus: Windows into Reality, in which we are exploring ten of Jesus’ most famous parables. 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.

The Parable of the Talents

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

Parables of Jesus: Windows into Reality

This morning we are entering our second week in a new series, The Parables of Jesus: Windows into Reality, in which we are exploring ten of Jesus’ most famous parables. 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.

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

Parables of Jesus: Windows into Reality

This morning we are beginning a new series, The Parables of Jesus: Windows into Reality, over the course of which we will explore ten of Jesus’ most famous parables. Today, we begin in Matthew 13:44-46 with the parable of the hidden treasure and, its pair, the pearl of great price. Here Jesus illustrates the unrivaled worth of God’s Kingdom and invites us to consider: What is my greatest treasure? And, more importantly, am I living for the greatest treasure?

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.

The Pentateuch: Rescue East of Eden

Today we conclude our study through the first five books of the Bible, known as the Pentateuch. This is a five-week overview series, during which we’re spending one week on each book. Today we reach the fifth, and final, book of our series: Deuteronomy. This book records Moses’ final encouragements and exhortations to a new generation of Israelites as they prepare to enter the Promised Land (again). It is filled to the brim with the love and law of Yahweh.

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.

Sovereignly Saved for God’s Glory

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

The Pentateuch: Rescue East of Eden

Today we continue our new 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 reach Exodus. Building on Genesis, Exodus continues to unfold the (true) story of how God sovereignly saves his people for his glory. He did then—and he does today. Exodus reveals God is not small and powerless, but sovereign and glorious. He is not meant to be a footnote to our lives, but our very lives.

Today we begin a new series through the first five books of the Bible, known as the Pentateuch. This will be a five-week overview series, during which we’ll spend one week on each book. We begin our study with Genesis, the (true) story of beginnings. Grasping the big picture of this book is crucial for understanding the rest of the Bible—and also your life and that’s no small matter. Genesis takes us deep, fast.

Cultivating a Culture of Care

Media, Sermons, Transformed | by Pastor Craig Sturm

Transformed

“Transformed” is a 4-part series exploring the transforming power of God in our lives. We all know from our own lives and our experience of the world around us, that real, lasting change is elusive. Today, we wrap up the series by thinking through God’s call on us to “bear one another’s burdens” (Gal. 6:2) — and how that contributes to our cultivation of a culture of care that is conducive to change.
