Jesus On Investing

Rev. Bruce Brown

Luke 16:1-15

I.      Material Resources Require Creative Thought (verses 1-9)           

II.    Material Resources Provide an Index of Character (verses 10-12)

III.   Material Resources Raise the Possibility of Idolatry (verses 13-15)

“The parable… is deeply instructive. It may well raise within us great searchings of heart. The diligence of worldly men about the things of time — should put to shame the coldness of professing Christians about the things of eternity. The zeal and tenacity of men of business in compassing sea and land to get earthly treasures — may well reprove the slackness and indolence of believers about treasures in Heaven.  The words of our Lord are indeed weighty and solemn, “The children of this world are, in their generation, wiser than the children of light.”  May these words sink into our hearts and bear fruit in our lives!”

~ J.C. Ryle

Loving God; Loving Neighbor

Luke 10:25-37

January 20th, 2019

I.                   A Calculated Question About Eternal Life (Vss. 25-29)

II.                  The Parable That Reveals God’s Desire (Vss. 30-35)

III.                Of Love and Sacrifice (Vss. 36-37)

Pastor Bruce Brown

“Let us not forget… to prove our own selves. Do we love God with all our heart, and soul, and strength, and mind? Do we love our neighbor as ourselves? Where is the person that could say with perfect truth, “I do?” Where is the one that ought not to lay his hand on his mouth, when he hears the questions? Truly we are all guilty in this matter! The best of us, however holy we may be, come far short of perfection. Passages like this, should teach us our need of Christ’s blood and righteousness. To Him we must go — if we would ever stand with boldness at the bar of God.” ~ J.C. Ryle

III.                The Power for Our Prayer Life (Vss. 6-8)

Pastor Bruce Brown

“But many are still discouraged by God’s seeming silence. We desperately need to learn that in the silence our loving God is answering, whether we see his working or not, for he delights to answer His children’s prayers.” ~ R. Kent Hughes

Spirit-Empowered Prayer

Ephesians 3:14-21

December 30th, 2018

I.                   The Spirit’s Power (Vss. 14-16)

II.                  Christ’s Indwelling (Vss. 17-19)

III.                The Glory of God (Vss. 20-21)

Mr. Steve McCullough

14 For this reason I kneel before the Father, 15 from whom every family[a] in heaven and on earth derives its name. 16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rootedand established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ,19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.” ~ Ephesians 3:14-21

"But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." ~ Matthew 6:33

"For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps." ~ 1 Peter 2:21

"I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.  And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God." ~ Romans 12:1-2
