This Way Up (Part 4): Do You Know What You Are Asking?

Matthew 20:17-28

Have the disciples been getting the point? Has Central Baptist Church? Do any of us ever really know for sure what we are asking Jesus?

This Way Up (Part 4): Faithful

Matthew 19:1-12

Sometimes, often, always, perhaps, there's more to Jesus' teaching that meets the eye. If you said this passage is about "divorce," that is the right wrong answer. 😉

This Way Up (Part 4): The Ultimate Love Story

Matthew 17:1-13

Jesus gets reminded of His coming wedding day.

During this particular service, we were delighted to celebrate the renewal of marriage vows of one of our couples. This ceremony comprises the first half of this recording. The sermon followed in theme, but our livestream was "dumped" by our platform host as the conclusion was approaching, and unfortunately we have no files containing the end of it. We are posting this anyway, in honor of the couple and because at least some of the intent of the message was recorded before our livestream was cut off.

Matthew 14

What if the most effective way to become like Jesus is to start by connecting with Him in the ways He became like us: His human limitations, like fatigue and grief? Connecting with Him by resting?
