    • When He Heard This He Was Very Sorrowfu For He Was Very Rich
      Knowing What Is Alive And Dead
      Luke 18-18-27
      SYNOPSIS:The Evangelist Luke explains why the Rich young ruler rejected the Gospel; he was very rich. There is a deeper reason, and it applies to each of us, no matter what our financial status. The man did not know the things in this life that are alive, and the things that are dead. We suffer from the same malady to varying degrees. The most important task of each day is to learn the things that lead to life and the things that lead to death. How can we answer this question, daily?

    • Thy Faith Hath Made Thee Whole
      Healing Of The Ten Lepers Thankfulness Energizes Everything
      Luke 17-12-19
      SYNOPSIS:There are phrases in the Gospel that are repeated so often that we should take special note of them. One goes like this: "Thy faith hath made thee whole." Only one of ten cleansed lepers received this blessing. All had faith, as their story attests, but only one had saving faith. What energizes saving faith? One of the most important things is thankfulness. How do we cultivate thankfulness in our life? It aint just what we say!

      Subtle Teachings
      Luke 17-12-19
      SYNOPSIS:The healing of the 10 lepers has an obvious lesson - that we must give thanks to God when He heals us. The lesson is much deeper and a little more subtle than that. There are two subtle lessons in this scripture that we should know well. One is a connection between faith, patience, and the Jesus prayer. Another is that any time (that is every moment) that grace acts, we must change in response.
