Parables: The Tower and the King – 08

A message from the series "Parables: from the Book of Luke - Olathe Campus." Jesus can set you free from the tyranny of trying to please others. And the tyranny of trying to please yourself. Following Him will cost you. But not following Him costs us so much more. And you’ll end up fighting a war you cannot win. With a God who loves you, and longs for you to surrender. Unconditional surrender. But who welcomes us in, not as slaves or even subjects. But as daughters and sons. The God who made me. Who died for me. Who rose victoriously for me. Who gives me His Spirit to actually be able to live this out. And forgiveness when I fail. Hope that one day all things will be made new. Church, the cost is high. But is it?

Parables: The Great Banquet – 07

A message from the series "Parables: from the Book of Luke - Downtown Campus." One of the most striking differences between human beings and animals is our ability to imagine. Albert Einstein has famously quipped, “Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination encircles the world.” Now clearly, the 20th century scientist wasn’t downplaying knowledge but rather ratcheting up the importance of imagination. Imagination is the faculty of forming new ideas or images not present to the senses. It explores rather than settles. And in Jesus’ parables, he employs our imaginations to explore the world through God’s eyes. One long-held image for God’s Kingdom by Israel is that of a feast. And more than any of the elements at the meal, the most pertinent question is “who is at the table?” This question is central to what Jesus has come to do, and so what He has called us to do. Jesus wants us to see what He sees rather than create a world in our own image. And when you do...it changes every meal you eat.
