The Unstoppable Kingdom

What is the Kingdom of God? How do we know the King of this kingdom and what is the nature of this kingdom? In Luke 13:10-21 Jesus shares two truths about the kingdom. The kingdom is far-reaching and deep in its effect. In other words, its extensive and intensive. Scripture: Luke 13:10-21 *There were some […]

The King’s Invitation

We all understand there is a brevity to life; one day a loved one is here and the next day they’re gone. The situation is familiar with all to us, whether it’s someone close or someone distant. For that reason (and much more) there should be an urgency in our hearts to answer the question, […]

A Word from Jesus to our Covetous Hearts

Seneca → “Be harsh with yourself at times.” Sometimes. Not always. At certain moments in life, lean into the bathroom mirror, squint your eyes and project pessimism at the person you see. Scripture: Luke 12:13-21 *There were some issues with the recording of the audio in the video and unfortunately the audio quality is poor. […]

Whose Neighbor Are You (and why it matters)?

Hearing Rightly Is The Key To Life

Jesus often used the power of stories to point those He encountered to a new reality of God’s goodness and grace. That’s because He understood that people connected easily with stories. His stories of truth and transformation literally changed the world. Everyone has a story. Our stories, our lives, need to be woven into the […]

Prayer Points: September

We’re already weeks into the fall and schedules seem to be busier than ever. To that end, I wanted to encourage you to be prayerful about one of our measures and one of our values that speak to lostness. Our measure of “Am I close to someone far from God?” speaks of a relational closeness […]

Humble Dependence Upon the Father

Too often we live our lives apart from a dependence on the Father. One pastor said that inattentiveness is the main reason for a difficult and unhealthy relationship. In the Lord’s Prayer Jesus teaches us how to pray, and foundational to all, it is a reliance upon Him, rather than ourselves. Scripture: Luke 11:1-4 https://media.blubrry.com/foothillschurch/p/s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/foothillswebsite/fbcsermon_20170827.mp3Podcast: […]
