Riddles of Grace

Dr. Joel Hunter

How can we understand the Kingdom of God? The Kingdom can be difficult to grasp because it can seem different from our day-to-day way of life. Yet at the same time, we know the Kingdom is intertwined with our everyday existence. That’s why we need a teaching that is rooted in the issues of our day-to-day lives that cuts through our currently held perspective. What we need is a story.

The Good Samaritan

Pastor Matt Heard

Worship Christ today as the one who brought the kingdom to earth. He put it within our grasp, and gave us understanding.

The Lost Sheep

Dr. Joel C. Hunter

In the parable of the lost sheep, we are reminded that Jesus cares more for the one than He does for the ninety-nine. Likewise, we are to go after the one who is lost because we could be that one who is lost someday. Are we going to do what makes us feel safe and comfortable or are we going to do what makes us more like Jesus?

The Sower

Dr. Joel Hunter

In the parable of the sower, we are reminded that the immediate win or loss is not nearly as important as what grows over time. We have no way of knowing where the seeds we plant will take root, so we are to sow everywhere. God gives us these great gifts of the Gospel so we can seek out those who need what we have to offer.

The Wise Builder

Dr. Joel Hunter

This parable sums up the Gospel perfectly. The Gospel is a life to be lived, not merely words to be understood. In today’s culture it’s easy to get caught up in what Pastor Joel refers to as: “sinking sand territory” – where our current situations and questions minimize our faith. However, we have something more solid than what our culture clings to – we have Christ, the Rock of our salvation. What are you building your life on?

The Workers In The Vineyard

Pastor Matt Heard

We all long to have lives of significance, lives that matter, but if we seek that significance outside of His instruction and authority we come up short. Often times we end up comparing ourselves to others instead of seeking significance in Christ - the only place it can truly be found.

The Great Banquet

Pastor Matt Heard

Is the gospel something that nourishes you on a daily basis? Pastor Matt reminds us that the Gospel is a feast, a daily feast. We all receive this invitation of the Gospel, but far too often we don’t actually think it is enough, so we reject the invitation.

The Rich Fool

Chad Turnbull

We live in a world where we think our possessions are our life and our life is our possessions. In this parable we are reminded that having riches is not the problem. Moreover, the misunderstanding of why we have what we have is where our greed begins. Chad reminds us that we aren’t just #blessed, we are #blessedtobeablessing. So the question is: are you going to be separated from your stuff because of your death or your generosity?

The Talents

Chad Turnbull

This parable shows us how to wait on Jesus and His return. Often times we cry out, “God, where are you?” or “What should I do?”, but God wants us to know how to wait well. Chad teaches us that “When you understand what it is you’re waiting with and you remember who you’re waiting for, that gives you an opportunity to step out and risk in very unique ways.”
