Excuses, excuses….

Posted in Jesus, kingdom, parable by LifeSpringChurch on March 25th, 2019

Jesus told a parable about how invitees to a banquet offered lame excuses about why they couldn't attend.  "I just bought some new property."  "I just bought some livestock."  "My wife requires my attention."  You get the idea; one excuse is as good as another when trying to avoid some sort of responsibility.  

This sermon is about what following Christ looks like.  Luke 14:16-24.

Praying with Persistence

Posted in kingdom, parable by LifeSpringChurch on March 4th, 2019

This sermon comes from Luke 11:5-13, a parable about the inconvenience of a neighbor in need.  In this parable and another in Luke 18:1-5, Jesus teaches us about the importance of never giving up in prayer when praying about things relating to the Kingdom of God.

Pharaoh’s Ten Commandments

Posted in God, kingdom, good news by LifeSpringChurch on July 16th, 2018

This sermon comes from Exodus 5:1-6:1 and it is about the conflict between Pharaoh (Thutmose III) and the people of Israel who were being held captive in Egypt.  The sermon contrasts the demands of Pharaoh against the laws given by God to Israel in the Ten Commandments.  The premise of the sermon is that the laws that God gives us to govern our lives as his people are far lighter and benevolent toward us than the onerous commands of Pharaoh.

An Announcement of Salvation

Posted in kingdom, Temple by LifeSpringChurch on December 5th, 2017

This week's sermon comes from Isaiah 2:1-5 which looks forward to the time when the kingdom of God will be preeminent, drawing all people to it.  It is a message of Good News which is welcome in a dark world.

Setting Priorities

Posted in Jesus, kingdom by LifeSpringChurch on March 5th, 2017

In Matthew 13:44-46 Matthew recounts the two parables that Jesus told about "treasure" that people found and spent their whole wealth in order to possess.  It's a stunning idea, and Jesus connects it to the value of the Kingdom of God.  Those who recognize the wealth of the kingdom go on to sell everything to possess it.  As a result we have the stories today of Mother Teresa, Martin Luther King, and a host of other people who went on to give their lives for the work of God.  That is this the concern of this week's sermon.

Thy Kingdom Come

Posted in kingdom, Christ by LifeSpringChurch on February 13th, 2017

We forgot our lamp oil!
