By Pastor Glenn Pease Neil Armstrong was the first man to set his foot on the moon, but long before that momentous event he was a dreamer. As early as age 2 he fell in love with airplanes, and for the rest of his life that was a focus for him. He made model planes as a child, and at age 14 he got a job…

Sometimes we are imprecise when we talk about God. We don’t mean to be inaccurate but we are. We mentioned last week that sometimes we say, “The Bible contains the Word of God” but the truth is that “the Bible is the word of God.” We say that God “loves everybody” (and in one sense that is true), but…

Luke 18:9-14 This parable is simple. And devastating. It strikes at a spiritual condition that anyone who has been a believer for some time can suffer from. The sense of security in God morphs into personal smugness. What once was thanksgiving to God becomes self-congratulation about one’s life of faith.…

Luke 13:6-9 (KJV) 6 He spake also this parable; A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none. 7 Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why…

Matt 13:31-35 [Read Matt 13:31-35] These two parables – at first glance – are quite easy to understand. The Kingdom of God has very small and inconspicuous beginnings but in time has magnificent and mighty results. And as is the case with parables – the ordinary is extraordinary. Like a small seed which…

By Pastor Glenn Pease A fisherman's experiment is described in a tract. It tells of how he caught a large black bass and instead of putting it in the frying pan he put it in a glass tank. Each morning he would bring a minnow to the tank and drop it in. The bass would make a dash for the minnow and soon…

Similar to the allegory in Genesis, the parable of the barren fig tree in Luke 13 depicts a vineyard. We are calling this parable The Unfinished Parable. In this parable, the land owner is disappointed that the fig tree is not bearing fruit and wants it to be removed. The gardener pleads with the land owner to give it one more year and he will dig around it and fertilize it. We are a fruit tree in the vineyard and we are expected to produce fruit. If we do not bear fruit and become useful to the land owner, we will have to be removed to make room for a tree that WILL bear fruit. The parable ends just shy of a conclusion because the ending is not written yet - WE are writing the ending with our lives, one day at a time. Will we say in the garden? Listen and follow along with the points as we dig in to this parable in detail and break down the analogies that relate to our lives.

The people in Boston have experienced a roller-coaster week for emotions. For the last 36 hours, Boston has been euphoric. Their joy is understandable, but it is nothing compared to the joy in heaven when men are reconciled to God. LAST WEEK: (See previous message by clicking on my name above) God is…

Our discipleship and service are measured by our actions over our words. Jesus favors the humble repentance of a sinner over the moral and verbal grandstanding of “the righteous”. This kingdom story demonstrates that the religiously observant can know what to say and surprisingly not fulfill the will of their father. And even more surprisingly still (and amazingly for that matter)- God’s love accepts the genuine actions of those rejected and discarded by the religious establishment.

PRAY Intro Review: *** In this setting of confrontation with the leaders, and still on the topic of authority, Jesus now goes on the offensive. He tells a parable that is relevant to us in its theme of our accountability to God’s ownership and authority. It is a particularly stinging indictment, though,…

Jesus' teaching on prayer here is in context of His coming Kingdom. This is a call to look beyond what we see and experience to see God’s great purpose. It is a call for us to fix our prayers not in what is but what will be. Jesus is encouraging us to keep praying and not get discouraged because He will answer His people's prayers.

Matt 20:1-16 This parable (like them all) draws us in and has us objecting and joining in with the complaints. We can see the unfairness quite easily. It is plain that this is unjust. In anyone’s language this is no way to treat people. From those who worked all or most of the day – especially at the…

Greg Woolf • Cliff Terrace Church • Sermon • • 35 views • 35:28
Last week we began a series called Prayer that Works. We looked Elijah’s prayer and how we can pray like a righteous man. Today we are going to look at the prayer of Daniel. How many of you pray a prayer and then you feel like giving up? Supposedly this is a true story. There was a Welsh Woman who lived…
