On the Road to Emmaus

On the Road to Emmaus

Have you ever hoped that Jesus would rescue you from some sort of problem or hoped that he would give you a problem-free life?  Have you ever felt that instead, God abandoned you? If he really existed, then he sure didn’t seem to care about you?

It’s a familiar story, so I’ll just read through it quickly, and save my comments for the end.

In Luke 24, we read that the women went to the tomb early on the first day of the week, and they found the tomb empty. Two angels appeared, and told them that Jesus had risen.

So the women ran to tell the apostles the good news, but the apostles did not believe the women, because their words didn’t seem to make any sense. Let’s read the story starting in verse 12:

I don’t know how you deal with disappointment, but I have a method I’ve used since I was a child. I imagine a worst-case scenario, so if it happens, I won’t be disappointed, it’s just what I expected. If things don’t go wrong, I should be pleased. The problem is I’m not, and my negativity makes me and everyone around me miserable.

Some people think that Christianity is interesting, but basically irrelevant—a harmless superstition. It’s fine for you, they might say, but it really makes no difference to anyone else.

Now, the opposite was true for Jesus: his ministry and teachings did not help himself at all, and they made a big difference for everyone else.

In the modern world, there is often a big disconnect between Christ and Christianity, and today I’d like to explore that a little bit. We’ll start with one of the events in the life of Christ, recorded in Mark chapter 6.

For Christians, there are two very important questions: “Who is Jesus?” and “Who is the God revealed in Jesus?” To help us get at those two questions, I’d like for us to consider some answers given by Jesus in the Gospel of John.

Stewardship of Talents

Stewardship of Talents

Jesus used a steward as an example in several of his parables, because all of us in some way or another manage things that belong to God. The word “stewardship” often refers to the way that we use money, and it is a reminder that the stuff we have is not really our own, and so we ought to be generous in giving some of it back to God for his use.

Christian churches sometimes talk about the idea of “stewardship,” but especially for new people, it is often an unfamiliar word. We don’t know what stewardship is, and we don’t know what a steward is.

But Jesus used a steward as an example in several of his parables, so it is helpful for us to see what he is talking about.

The Messianic Secret

Mike Feazell

The Messianic Secret

Have you ever wondered why Jesus never preached Jesus? He went about doing good, the Bible tells us. He healed the sick and cast out demons and taught large crowds around the countryside and smaller groups in the synagogues. But he carefully avoided declaring that he was the Messiah. In fact, he went out of his way to keep his identity as Messiah a secret.

A man with leprosy came to him and begged him on his knees, If you are willing, you can make me clean.

Dan Rogers: Good morning everyone. Good to see you here once again and as usual, it’s time now in our service to talk about God’s word. Our text for today is going to be from 1 Corinthians 15. Before we get to the text, let’s talk a little about the background in which Paul is writing to them, to the church in the city of Corinth. Anybody know anything of interest about the city of Corinth that you’d like to share with the rest of us? What do you know about that town in ancient Greece?

Person: It was a very well-known town in that area. It was important as far as commerce.

Our nation is full of immigrants. Many of us were born in a different nation, and we moved to America at some point in our life. Or maybe it was our great-great grandparents who moved to America from “the old country.” Even if we are Native Americans, if we go back far enough, we will see that our ancestors came to this land from somewhere else.

As a boy I heard the story of Abraham recounted at least once a week, and it usually went something like this: “God told Abraham to go, and he went. He didn’t ask questions; he didn’t hesitate; he just packed up and left everything he knew—country, family—and went. That’s how all of us should obey God. When God says ‘jump,’ you don’t ask ‘how high?’ – you just jump.”

Dan: Good morning. It’s good to see all of you here today. We’ve had a nice time singing and worshipping together and good time of prayer. Now, it’s time for us to get into God’s word and talk about our message for today. As you know, we’re going to be reading from John chapter 4 and the story of Jesus and the Samaritan woman. Before we actually get into the text, I thought it might be interesting just to talk about the background of Samaria and that part of the world and the Samaritan people so that we have a little bit of background to work with as we get in to the story.
