Don’t Take the Best Seat in the House

Jesus heals a man whose physical ailment is symptomatic of the religious leader’s spiritual ailment and he does so to confront the thinking the religious leader’s had regarding who God’s Kingdom belonged to.

Lost, Found, Joy

Jesus tells a story about a lost sheep and the shepherd who searches for it, and brings it home with joy. He tells a story about a lost coin and the woman who sweeps her house for it and when she finds it, she celebrates! Then Jesus says He’s not talking about a sheep or […]

From Pink Slip to Promotion
