Remain Faithful Until He Comes

Part 13, Parable series Luke 18:1-8; Matthew 24:9-13; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 Luis Cruz, GCF Durham This parable is also on waiting. It’s just the norm of life. Last week we studied the Parable of then Shrewd Manager. And that parable is about money. Today, it is a parable that teaches us to Remain Faithful until He comes again. We wait for Him. We always wait. But when we wait for the Lord’s promise to return, we wait patiently, and we faithful to Him, because we believe that Jesus will come again. His disciples were being persecuted and would even be more, after Jesus departs from His earthly ministry. And Jesus gave this parable to encourage them to remain faithful until He comes to brin

Use Your Resources Wisely

“1Jesus told his disciples: “There was a rich man whose manager was accused of wasting his possessions. 2 So he called him in and asked him, ‘What is this I hear about you? Give an account of your management, because you cannot be manager any longer.’" Luke 16:1-2. We are not using our money wisely. For every dollar we earn, we owe almost $1.78 (CBC News, Canadians took on debts in 1st quarter of 2019, but total amount they owe is still growing, Posted: Jun 13, 2019 10:23 AM ET | Last Updated: June 13). And many of these debts, if we will just be honest with ourselves, we don’t even really need in the first place. Just look at your garage or your closet, it will tell you, you bought many th

Use Your Resources Wisely For His Kingdom

Part 11, The Parable of the Shrewd Steward Luke 16, 1-13, Luis Cruz, GCF Durham As we have learned in the past, Jesus has been using the ordinary things in life to teach kingdom lessons. The parable of the shrewd manager was so ordinary in Israel that people knew what he was aiming at – the Pharisees who love money (v.14.) It was so common in that day, that religious people would use their influence shrewdly to enrich themselves. Sounds familiar? But just the same, many Christians have brought their former life into their new life in Christ. We are enriching ourselves with wealth we cannot carry to eternal life. To be honest, we are not using our money wisely. For every dollar we earn, we

You have been invited to God’s Feast!

The Parable of the Great Banquet Part 10, Luke Parable Series, Luke 14:15-24 The great banquet is the celebration after the wedding ceremony mentioned in verses 8-14. A Jewish wedding calls for the first meeting of the bride and the groom to sign a marriage contract. After which, the groom has to leave right away and prepare their home. It was in keeping with what God said in Genesis 2:24. After the groom comes back, the public ceremony begins, and the feast comes next. To us, wedding is such an important event because it portrays the wedding of Christ to His church. The church is His bride according to Ephesians 5:25-27. Thus, this is a very important event. Having said that, Jesus used t

What is the Kingdom Like?

The Parables of the Mustard Seed and the Yeast, Luke 13:18-21 Luis Cruz, GCF Durham Jesus compared the Kingdom of God to a small mustard seed that can grow to become a tree. It is a picture of God’s reign and sovereignty. In His sovereignty God will include, not just the Jews but even the Gentiles to be reconciled with Him. In another way, Jesus compared the kingdom to a yeast that can quietly permeate the flour. It’s an image again of God being able to transform every aspect of the believer’s life. 1. The Kingdom of God is the eternal rule of the Sovereign God. God’s kingdom has already come but has not been fully revealed yet. a.) The present aspect. Psalm 103:19 “The Lord has established
