The Unmerciful Servant

In response to Peter’s question about how many times he should forgive someone who sinned against him, Jesus tells this parable about a servant who receives great forgiveness but withholds forgiveness for another? We learn in Matthew 18 that God forgives and expects us to do the same.
 



Jesus and the Woman at the Well

In New Testament days, Jews and Samaritans did not get along. Jews would go as far as avoiding Samaria altogether when traveling. So why would it say early in John 4 that Jesus “had to go through Samaria.” He went there for a purpose. Instead of water, the woman He met at the well would find the Messiah. Drew “Boo” Scott from Westside Church of Christ in Norman unpacks this amazing story of an encounter with Jesus.
 



Esther

Esther finds herself in the right place at the right time to save her people, but she knows that speaking up could bring her a lot of trouble. This week we will see how she chooses courage over fear, how her adversary chooses pride and anger over humility and how the hand of God is working through the entire story.
 



The Rich Man and the Beggar

The snooze button might be one of the most beloved inventions ever for people who like just a few more minutes of sleep in the morning. If we hit it too many times, we might miss something important. In this parable in Luke 16, Jesus warns what can happen when we keep waiting to change our lives and truly follow Him. If we keep hitting the snooze button in our spiritual lives, we could miss the most important thing.
 



Jesus Washes His Disciples’ Feet

We resume our guest speaker series with Nathan Mellor from Oklahoma City. Nathan emphasizes the importance of service in our lives using the example of Jesus in John 13.
 



A Friend in Need

As VBS is about to begin, we have an abbreviated lesson this week from Luke 11. God wants us to treat others well because He loves them. He sets the example by listening to our needs through prayer.
 



Get Ready

The parables in Matthew 25 warn that Jesus will return, and we need to be ready. What might surprise us is how Jesus encourages us to get ready. He spends most us the chapter telling His disciples about the importance of giving and serving others. We must make those things priorities in our lives as well.
 



Growth

In Matthew 13 we find parables about planting, sowing and growing. This week we look at the parables of growth and see what they tell us about small beginnings, the kingdom and our walk with God.

Jesus and Zacchaeus

Casey LaValley from the Fittstown Church of Christ is with us this week to talk about Zacchaeus. We should all want to see Jesus as desperately as Zacchaeus did, and our lives should exhibit the same kind of transformation.
 



Nehemiah

David Dirrim shares the story of Nehemiah and reminds us of the importance of working together in the church.
