A Community of Repentance
Based on Luke 15:11-22

The Christian Community is always under attack, but there is one thing that builds it up, rather than tearing it down. It’s repentance. It is great for the community because it has two parts to it - sorrow over sin and confidence in God’s forgiveness. That leads to other blessings like joy and humility within the community of believers, too. God’s grace is behind it all.

    The Attack on Community – Children’s Version
    Based on Luke 15:11-14, 28-32
     
    The Christian Community isn’t perfect. There still are fights and divisions within the community. Why? The two brothers in the Parable of the Lost Son both divided the community. It was their greed, their idolatry that divided the family community. How is the community healed? Only by the grace of the Father.

    To Make You Wise for Salvation
    Series: Red Letters
    Based on Proverbs 9:8-12
     
    Wisdom is not just knowing things. It’s knowing things and then following through with the proper knowledge in your life. Spiritual wisdom isn’t just knowing things. It’s knowing the truth, and then following through with that in your life. God tells us that his word gives us that wisdom. Christians recognize the only way to be spiritually wise is to regularly be connected to God’s word and making use of it daily.

    Signs of True Humility
    Series: Red Letters
    Based on Luke 14:1,7-14

    The Christian lifestyle plays out in every aspect of our lives...even in the way we party. Jesus uses the examples of going to a party and hosting a party as ways to show us how to live humble lives. Ultimately, humility means recognizing how important and loved we truly are in God’s eyes, and then sharing the same love with others.

    Narrow-Minded Christians
    Series: Red Letters
    Based on Luke 13:22-30

    Not only does the Bible claim that Jesus is the only way to heaven, but so do Christians. It seems so narrow minded to say that. “It’s so exclusive. All good people should be allowed into heaven.” That’s the claim many make. But that “open-minded” approach is far narrower than initially seems, and the “narrow-minded” Christian approach is far more spacious than imaginable.
