Podcast: Hidden Agenda

growingpodThis week’s message comes from Matthew 16:21-28.  In this passage, Jesus rebukes Peter because of his suggestion that Jesus ought not to die.  He tells Peter that his mind is on worldly things, not divine things.  There are two narratives telling you how to get life.  One of them is a lie.

This is the diagram on plot structure I used in the message.

Podcast: The Rescue

growingpodThis week’s message comes from Matthew 14:22-33.  This is a well known story of Jesus walking on the water out to the disciples, and then of Peter walking out to Jesus.  This passage was particularly challenging and heavy on my heart this week.  What does it mean for us to have faith and to be the church today?

growingpodThis week’s message comes from Matthew 14:13-21, and it is the account of Jesus feeding  a multitude with only 5 loaves and 2 fish.  How does this point ahead to what Jesus does in the Last Supper?  How does it affect our understanding of communion?
