We exist to impact the world by engaging our community spiritually, culturally, and socially.
Now It Begins
Jesus had made some sobering claims about himself and some rather confrontational claims about the Jewish nation as well. How would he follow this up? What was the encore to something as dramatic as that? For goodness sake, they tried to throw him off of a cliff! The answer is simple; he began to do exactly what he had promised - proclaim liberty to captives and freedom to prisoners. Again, the people were all amazed. How does that apply to us in the 21st century? Luke 4:31-44 1. What "works of the devil" has Jesus destroyed in your life? 2. Have you ever had a physical healing? 3. Think about your own first encounter with Jesus. Was it a result of someone else in your life and the interaction they were having with Jesus? 4. Do you often go away to pray? If not, why not? 5. Do you have a sense of GO when you talk to God? Does he ever put it on your heart to share your faith?
Jesus, the Scroll, and the Edge of the Cliff (Part II)
As Paul Harvey would say, are you ready to hear "the rest of the story?" Last week, we observed the extraordinary moment when Jesus unrolled the scroll in the synagogue in Nazareth, read a prophecy about the coming messiah written by Isaiah 700 years prior, and simply said, "Today this Scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing." Wow! Did you catch that? Jesus was leaving no room for speculation about who He was claiming to be. This simple act has reverberated down through the last 2,000 years and is still impacting millions of people each year. Jesus is "the man." Actually, Jesus is the God-man. Luke 4: 22-30
Jesus, the Scroll, and the Edge of a Cliff
Can you believe it? We are now going to continue our walk through the Gospel of Luke. I know that using four weeks to take a deep dive into our strategies to battle temptation might have "tempted" you to tune out, but we have actually had a large response from many of you, saying that it was very helpful and gave you new tools to combat the struggles between your ears. Luke 4:14-15 1. Have you ever thought of the Scripture as being "progressively unveiled?" 2. If so, has it dawned on you that you know more than almost any Biblical figure ever knew about God's plans? 3. Have you been a recipient of Isaiah's prophecy in chapter 61? If so, how would you describe your transformation?
Temptation Tool Kit - Part III
Senior Pastor Jeffrey Cranford continues his teaching on temptation, providing us the tool kit to resist satan's attempts to influence our lives and choices.
2 Corinthians 12:9-10
1. Are you a control freak? Why are we all subject to this temptation?
2. Do you often fight discouragement? If so, what verse spoke the loudest to you?
3. Have you ever considered yielding to temptation as an actual partnership with evil?
4. What is your resolve in 2021?
