Joshua first comes on the scene as a spy who shows faith and later follows Moses as God’s leader of Israel. Through it all his courage helps us see the power of God at work.  

The Wedding Banquet

In this parable a king invites people to a wedding banquet for his son. Those who are invited are unwilling to attend for various reasons, but the king’s plan does not end there. What things in our lives stop us from accepting God’s invitation?  


As God’s people again did evil in His eyes, they struggled to see where He was and why bad things were happening to them. Through Gideon, God brings a great victory in a way that magnifies His power and shows His faithfulness.

In this parable from Luke 14, Jesus warns that any of His followers should first count the cost of discipleship before taking that first step. (There are audio distortion issues with this recording. We hope to have it fixed […]


At its core, the Parable of the Talents is actually about money. In the time of Jesus the word we translate “talent” was a measure either by weight or coinage of money, not the skills or abilities we think of today. That being said, the parable does speak to the principle of what we should […]

Because I Asked

We take a one week detour from our Parables series to talk about the story of Hannah from 1 Samuel 1. Hannah’s faithfulness and prayer is an example to us, as we turn first to God with our struggles, needs and thanksgiving.  

Perseverance and Pride

Two different parables in Luke 18 tell us a lot about the kind of character we should have as we pray and in life in general. We should never give up and always remain humble, knowing that God is faithful.

Beginning and Ending

As Genesis comes to a close, we look at the recap of the stories of God’s people in Hebrews 11. We are reminded that each of these characters is a flawed person whose faith God used to accomplish great things. He still works through our faith today.
