Lazarus and What's His Name?

Patrice McCormac
Luke 16:19-31

Although being wealthy is not a sin, it can blind us to the things of God. God gives each of us a measure of wealth, whether a little or a lot, with the intent that we use it to bring Him glory. God has a great concern for the poor. We can use our wealth on our selves as the rich man did or we can use it to serve the poor and bring glory to God.

Waiting On the Lord

Conrad Hilario
1 Samuel 23-26

David, already anointed to be the future king of Israel, had to wait on God for at least fifteen years before finally ascending to the throne. In those years of waiting for the promises of God, David had several opportunities to kill Saul but chose not to kill him as he trusted God to fulfill His promises in His time.

David On the Run

Scott Risley
1 Samuel 21-25

When the waiting on God becomes weeks, months, even years, will you take matters into your own hands or will you actively wait upon the Lord? Will you trust God to bring you spiritual friends while repeatedly seeking God in prayer? Will you refrain from repaying evil with evil while remembering the times God has come through?

The Heart of a King

Scott Risley
1 Samuel 11-16

When the Israelites demanded a king, they looked at the outward appearances but God looks inward at the heart. The people saw Saul, tall, handsome and wealthy and desired him for their king, but he did not trust God nor obeyed Him. After God rejected Saul as king, He chose David, a man after His own heart.

God's New Man

Dennis McCallum
1 Samuel 15-17

After Saul's repeated disobedience to God's commands, God picks a new leader, the young shepherd boy, David. When the armies of God are being defied by the Philistine giant, Goliath, David trusts God to give Goliath into his hand even though he is only armed with a stone and a sling. Where the entire Israelite army cowered in fear, David had a divine perspective and was willing to do something audacious.

Christians and Government

Ben Foust
Romans 13:1-7

In the midst of a tumultuous political environment, Paul commands the Roman Christians to obey their government.

The Good Shepherd

Mike Sullivan
Ezekiel 34:1-24

To follow Jesus, we must first determine if we are willing to be led, and then decide if Christ is a leader worth following.


Jim Leffel
Hebrews 4:1-13

The author of Hebrews urges his readers to turn to God today if we hear his voice. God desires to bring us into his rest and peace, but first this requires that we listen and obey His direction for our life.

Eagerly Waiting for the King

Ryan Lowery
Philippians 3:18-21

While still on Earth, Christians should view their identity as that of an ex-patriot--living in a foreign land, with our citizenship in heaven. This teaching goes through aspects of our thinking that should be controlled by our identity, instead of worldly perspectives. This will translate into a loving, serving lifestyle that stands firm on the word of God.
