    March 22:  Cut It Off  Notes /  Podcast

    How serious are you about sin? Probably not as serious as Jesus is. Jesus doesn’t play around with sin at all! In fact he said that any part of our body that causes us to sin needs to be removed - cut out or cut off. Those are drastic measures. Seriously Jesus? Cut off our hands if they are used to send hurtful e-mails? Remove our eyes if they lust after a woman? Or is what Jesus wants is for us to see the real issue? Maybe it’s not to a hand or eye issue, but instead a mater of the heart! His warning is one we need still today to address the counterfeit gods of our heart that seek pleasure outside of Him and cut them out of our life.

    March 18:  The Decision  Podcast

    (Luke 23:18-25) A murderer set free?! An innocent man condemned?! A mob triumphs over justice?! An innocent man condemned?! I’d connect this to vicarious atonement, the blood sacrifices of the OT, the Day of Atonement, and much more.

    March 15:  Flip This House  Notes /  Podcast

    Flipping and fixing up outdated houses is all the rage - it has made HGTV one of the most popular cable channels today. When someone takes one of these projects on, they often find the unexpected - shotty pipes, cracked beams, or faulty wiring. When Jesus saw the Temple he found the unexpected and was irate. Is Jesus cracking a whip and flipping tables the way you picture him? If he came to our church today what would he find and would he do the same thing? Confrontational Jesus reminds us that we too are to have a passion for what God is passionate about - his Word and his mission.
