Prelude to a Kiss #6…

As we’re steamrolling toward the joyous Resurrection Day, let’s not neglect to feel the weight of these hallowed weeks we’re in. The Lord of the Universe came and died that we might be free from the insurmountable burden of sin. Our Savior purchased our freedom with his blood and pain. The weeks leading up to what He knew He’d endure must have been days of mental anguish beyond our comprehension.

But Jesus endured. We were bought with a price – and paid for in full. For that we sing of His glory, and we’ll sing of His glory forever.

Here are the verses we’ll be diving into this Sunday:

But he said to them, “How can they say that the Christ is David’s son? For David himself says in the Book of Psalms, “‘The Lord said to my Lord, Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool.’ David thus calls him Lord, so how is he his son?” And in the hearing of all the people he said to his disciples, “Beware of the scribes, who like to walk around in long robes, and love greetings in the marketplaces and the best seats in the synagogues and the places of honor at feasts, who devour widows’ houses and for a pretense make long prayers. They will receive the greater condemnation.”

–Luke 20:41-47

This isn’t a game, says Jesus. This isn’t a show. This is the real deal; the realest deal there is.

See you Sunday.

Check out the passage that Pastor Schinn will be teaching on this Sunday:

There came to him some Sadducees, those who deny that there is a resurrection, and they asked him a question, saying, “Teacher, Moses wrote for us that if a man’s brother dies, having a wife but no children, the man must take the widow and raise up offspring for his brother. Now there were seven brothers. The first took a wife, and died without children. And the second and the third took her, and likewise all seven left no children and died. In the resurrection, therefore, whose wife will the woman be? For the seven had her as wife.” And Jesus said to them, “The sons of this age marry and are given in marriage, but those who are considered worthy to attain to that age and to the resurrection from the dead neither marry nor are given in marriage, for they cannot die anymore, because they are equal to angels and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection. But that the dead are raised, even Moses showed, in the passage about the bush, where he calls the Lord the God of Abraham and the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob. Now he is not God of the dead, but of the living, for all live to him.” Then some of the scribes answered, “Teacher, you have spoken well.” For they no longer dared to ask him any question.

–Luke 20:27-40

We’ve got an awesome gimmick to get people to come to church this Sunday…

No, we don’t. No gimmicks. Just the gospel. Come, hear, and live.

This Sunday we’ll continue in the “Prelude to a Kiss” series.

The scripture of the day is Luke 20:20-26:

So they watched him and sent spies, who pretended to be sincere, that they might catch him in something he said, so as to deliver him up to the authority and jurisdiction of the governor. So they asked him, “Teacher, we know that you speak and teach rightly, and show no partiality, but truly teach the way of God. Is it lawful for us to give tribute to Caesar, or not?” But he perceived their craftiness, and said to them, “Show me a denarius. Whose likeness and inscription does it have?” They said, “Caesar’s.” He said to them, “Then render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” nd they were not able in the presence of the people to catch him in what he said, but marveling at his answer they became silent.

Here are the songs we’ll be singing:

  • Desert Song
  • Come Thou Fount (Come Thou King)
  • Our God
  • O Lord You’re Beautiful
  • None But Jesus

Come join us this Sunday!

Prelude to a Kiss #3.

Are you ready for this?

And he entered the temple and began to drive out those who sold, saying to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be a house of prayer,’ but you have made it a den of robbers.” And he was teaching daily in the temple. The chief priests and the scribes and the principal men of the people were seeking to destroy him, but they did not find anything they could do, for all the people were hanging on his words. One day, as Jesus was teaching the people in the temple and preaching the gospel, the chief priests and the scribes with the elders came up and said to him, “Tell us by what authority you do these things, or who it is that gave you this authority.” He answered them, “I also will ask you a question. Now tell me, was the baptism of John from heaven or from man?” And they discussed it with one another, saying, “If we say, ‘From heaven,’ he will say, ‘Why did you not believe him?’ But if we say, ‘From man,’ all the people will stone us to death, for they are convinced that John was a prophet.” So they answered that they did not know where it came from. And Jesus said to them, “Neither will I tell you by what authority I do these things.”

–Luke 19:45-20:8

The passage above can teach us so much about Christ. Sometimes people try to generalize His attributes as soft and lovey-dovey. Read over the passage above, and a sense of His pure masculinity and also His lack of patience for hypocrisy is readily seen.

We’re incredibly blessed at Calvary to have a teacher like Dave Riddle. I can’t wait to see how he unpacks this text for us. I learn new things every Sunday at CBC.

Here are the songs we’ll be singing to the Savior:

Join us this Sunday morning. Service starts at 10:45.

This Sunday we’re on to the second message in our “Prelude to a Kiss” series.

And taking the twelve, he said to them, “See, we are going up to Jerusalem, and everything that is written about the Son of Man by the prophets will be accomplished. For he will be delivered over to the Gentiles and will be mocked and shamefully treated and spit upon. And after flogging him, they will kill him, and on the third day he will rise.” But they understood none of these things. This saying was hidden from them, and they did not grasp what was said. As he drew near to Jericho, a blind man was sitting by the roadside begging. And hearing a crowd going by, he inquired what this meant. They told him, “Jesus of Nazareth is passing by.” And he cried out, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” And those who were in front rebuked him, telling him to be silent. But he cried out all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” And Jesus stopped and commanded him to be brought to him. And when he came near, he asked him, “What do you want me to do for you?” He said, “Lord, let me recover my sight.” And Jesus said to him, “Recover your sight; your faith has made you well.” And immediately he recovered his sight and followed him, glorifying God. And all the people, when they saw it, gave praise to God.

–Luke 18:31-43

I, for one, cannot WAIT to hear this scripture unpacked. There is so much there! This passage is more than words. It’s truth embodied; God has given us His very word and said “Here. Live in this. Understand it. Meditate on it. Enjoy it.” And we get the incredible opportunity to do just that.

We anticipate the presence of God as we worship. He is so worthy. Here are the songs we’ll be pouring out to Him:

Don’t let anything keep you from church this Sunday!

The topic of this weekend’s message is sanctity of human life.

What a sobering, urgent, imminently important issue, and one we all need a refresher course in. By defending those who are made in God’s image I believe we are offering worship to the Lord. Only He has the right to give and take life.

Here are the awesome songs we’ll be singing in worship to rise to our Lord as a pleasing aroma:

There is nothing I’d rather be doing on a Sunday morning than pouring out worship to the only one worthy. Do you know it’s what we’re made for?

Join us.

We’re continuing our study of Luke at Calvary this Sunday.

Here’s the scripture we’ll be chewing on:

“No one after lighting a lamp puts it in a cellar or under a basket, but on a stand, so that those who enter may see the light. Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your eye is healthy, your whole body is full of light, but when it is bad, your body is full of darkness. Therefore be careful lest the light in you be darkness. If then your whole body is full of light, having no part dark, it will be wholly bright, as when a lamp with its rays gives you light.”

–Luke 11:33-36

Read that over a few times. Pray on it. What do you get out of it?

Here are the songs we’ll be singing:

The table is set. Won’t you join us?
