Join Pastor Rod Denton as he unpacks five key reasons why we as Christians must tell others the good news of Jesus. These five points are all found in 2 Corinthians 5:6 - 6:2.
Jesus makes it really clear that one day the whole of humanity will face judgement, that one day there will be a separation of those that hear and respond to the shepherd's voice and those who don't. Which one will you be a sheep or a goat?
We sometimes forget that many of the parables have a warning woven into their narrative. Jesus was such a genius teacher he could bless and rebuke at the same time. Today we are going to look at the Parable of the Prodigal from the second son's perspective to see what Jesus was trying to teach us.
This parable is best known as the prodigal son but today we discover that the central character is in fact the Father. Jesus paints a picture of his Father and we would do well to pause and take on board how good a father he is.
Jesus taught his disciples how to pray but so many of us think that his teaching ended with what we know as the Lord's prayer. However, after giving them the structure and framework for prayer he goes on to teach how they should approach God in prayer by telling them the parable of a 'friend at midnight'. You might be surprised by what he taught!
Are you prepared? What for you may ask? For the greatest moment in human history, when Jesus comes back again. He's coming and he's expecting his people to be ready, unlike the five bridesmaids in todays parable!!
