There is great difficulty in leaving a religion under which we have grown up. The security of tradition and family ties makes difficult the decision to follow Jesus alone. In this passage Jesus helps His followers to break free and embrace the truth. Study with us Luke 12: 1-12.
How is it that the people of Jesus’ day did not understand who He was? We may think to ourselves If I were alive in Jesus’ day I would certainly follow Him! But is that really the case? In Luke 11 Jesus explains the reason that so many do not “see the light.” Could you be in danger of missing the Messiah too?
Taking our relationship with God to the next level through prayer is the topic of this message from Luke 11. Our prayer life changes as we focus less on our own needs and more on the needs others. Supplication on the behalf of others challenges our motives and our relationship with God Himself. Are you ready for the next level in prayer?
Jesus instructs his disciples on the basics of prayer in our text today. Luke 11 is one of the most popular passages on prayer, and has become known to many if not most in our society today as “The Lord’s Prayer.” Listen as we discover Jesus’ response to those who asked Him “Lord, teach us to pray.”
The Great Commission is fulfilled by the local church when the church sends missionaries to “preach the Gospel to every creature.” This is no small task!

The Apostle Paul was no stranger to missionary support and gives us a pattern in our text today in Philippians. Listen as we discuss how you can/should be involved in giving to missionaries.
