    Prodigal Church – The Qualities and Permanence of Love

    02/05/2021

    This week, we get into 1 Corinthians 13 – “the love chapter” – which we’ve most likely heard at every wedding we’ve ever been at. And while that’s great…the truth is that this text isn’t meant for couples, but for the church. In the church, we are to be known for the quality of our […]

    Different churches will participate in Communion or the Lord’s Supper in different ways…but at its core…the message is the same and it is clear. When we eat the bread and drink the cup we are reminded of Jesus’ willing sacrifice – his broken body and his spilt blood.

  • Prodigal Church – Understanding Headship

    Prodigal Church – Understanding Headship

    11/04/2021

    Whenever the Bible talks about headship and authority there is a strong possibility for negative feelings to emerge. Often times, however, those feelings come from our human lenses about headship and not from what God actually has to say.

  • Easter 2021 – You were…but God…by grace

    Easter 2021 – You were…but God…by grace

    04/04/2021

    One of the fundamental truths of the Christian life is that if you follow Jesus – then you are not what you once were. Plain and simple. You are new…you are different. The grace of God that comes through the person of Jesus Christ has moved us from who we were to who we are […]

    28/03/2021

    Prodigal Church – Rights & Freedom Rightly Used

    21/03/2021

    In chapter 9, Paul continues with addressing our rights by giving insight into a personal sacrifice that he is making in his own life in order that nothing gets in the way of people knowing Jesus. While the rights that we have are precious they are not what is most important. As disciples of Jesus, […]

    Prodigal Church – Limits of Liberty

    14/03/2021

    One of the great truths of the Christian faith is that in Christ, we are free from religious rules and regulations. Since we are saved by grace through faith in Jesus – we have religious liberty! But while liberty is a wonderful and precious thing – we must always be careful that in the use […]

    Prodigal Church – Liberty & Sexual Mortality

    28/02/2021

    Of all the sins that the church has to deal with – sexual sins seem to be among the most difficult – for a couple of reasons. First…they are more common than people care to admit. Second…when the church addresses them, the culture tends to label us as narrow minded, bigoted, and controlling. But even […]

    Prodigal Church – The Reputation of the Church

    21/02/2021

    As Paul continues to talk to the Corinthians about immorality in the church he turns his attention to the way that they handle disagreements. Their internal pettiness not only betrays a misunderstanding of their standing as believers, but it risks the reputation of the church.

    Prodigal Church – Arrogant or Humble?

    07/02/2021

    As the divisions gained momentum and the people lived within their immaturity of the flesh, they were experiencing the result which was a breakdown in humility. Instead, they were experiencing an attitude of arrogance where they lived in judgement toward one another, questioning motives and even doubting the calling of people in leadership. Paul knew […]
