In the Gospel of Luke, meals with Jesus serve as occasions for the Lord to clarify his mission – to heal the sick and seek the lost. Shared meals are also opportunities to reveal his heart. In today's text, we see the joyful heart of God. Anytime the lost are found – anytime a sinner repents – God rejoices and celebrates with all the host of heaven…
 
Even though Christianity is still the predominant faith in America; why is our influence for Christ in the world fading and so weak? One reason is that we have presented Christianity and discipleship as all benefits with no cost. Costless Christianity leads to imbalanced discipleship, cheap grace, and cultural Christians. In today’s text, we learn …
 
When we find ourselves spending time with people, we naturally fellowship with people like us. When we do, we become members of a clique. We become insiders in our social groups. We enjoy people within our social groups because they reciprocate conversation. They reciprocate hospitality. One week, we invite them to lunch. Next week, they invite us …
 
In Luke 14, Jesus accepts an invitation to dine with a prominent Pharisee but finds himself under watchful eyes. His opponents hope to expose his faults. But Jesus turns the table and uses a healing and a parable to expose their selfishness and self-conceit. Lord-willing, this meal with Jesus will produce a similar effect in us – that being a merci…
 
In another episode involving another meal with Jesus, we see how a desire to practice hospitality can quickly sour into feelings of resentment and self-pity. This occurs when the busyness of serving for Jesus distracts us from Jesus. Don't read this story as a rebuke of Martha for serving too much, but do read it as a warning if serving is done at …
 
The recent disruption of our normal rhythms of life – both personally and congregationally – has either prompted or exasperated a spiritual apathy in the hearts of many. We may still believe in God and give the bare minimum that devotion requires, but our love has grown cold. Here, in another meal with sinners, the Great Physician helps us to diagn…
 
In the Gospel of Luke, meals with Jesus function as a plot device for character development. Each occasion reveals more of Jesus’s heart and demonstrates the kind of person he is willing to befriend. As we study these occasions in our new sermon series, we pray that you will hear Christ’s call, reflect his heart, and continue his mission.Sermon Not…
 
The story of Daniel and the lions’ den is another scriptural reminder that, while the nations rage and plot in vain, the LORD remains faithful to his own. Like Daniel, you could very well face a situation where you must choose between your allegiance to God or another. So like Daniel, if you press on and refuse to break faith with the living God, y…
 
Once again, the people of God are staring in the face of death. This is not the first time and it won’t be the last. What we can see from the story of Esther is the providential care of God, not only in the face of death, but also in our everyday lives. Like every other story in our series, the hero in this story, Esther, points us to the greater h…
 
It’s worth noting that the only thing Jesus’ disciples are recorded to have asked him to teach them is how to pray. His reply to their request was the Lord’s Prayer. But before we study it line by line, we need to establish the right motives behind prayer.โดย Jason Tarn
 
In the last half of Ephesians, Paul has been describing what it looks like to walk as one saved by the gospel. Now as he concludes, he leaves us with a stark reminder that we're walking into a fight. There are spiritual forces in the world committed to knocking you off your feet. But there is also a mighty God in whom you can stand firm and endure.…
 
If the Gospel can give dignity and purpose to the work of a first-century slave, then there is definitely hope for yours. Whether you're the one giving orders or the one taking them, the Gospel has the power to reorient your attitude and motivation to do excellent work at work.โดย Jason Tarn
 
Melvin Huang engages the audience as he explains how to love strangers, and how we should love those who we don't know. Also with the completion of 30 hour famine, we engage the audience with a testimony from Annie Shen.โดย andrewau33@gmail.com
