It's been said that freedom isn't free. Our nation's story is one of an ongoing fight for freedom. Paul's letter to the Galatians tells the same story: a fight for the freedom and new identity that we have in Jesus.
To have a story you have to live a story. And once you do, you can share it with your world. The women who came to Jesus' tomb on Easter morning did just that. And we can do the same as we experience Jesus' resurrection life.
God's Kingdom is coming, but are you ready for it when it arrives? Jesus tells a story about a group of bridesmaids: some of them were ready for the festivities, but others were not. What will you need to do to be sure that you are ready for Him?
Jesus tells a story about guests who were invited to the wedding of the king's son. Their failure to R.S.V.P. properly costs them everything. God has invited you to become part of His New Creation. How will you R.S.V.P.?
Did you know you are wired for fairness? So what happens when things aren't fair? And what happens when someone -- like God -- is too generous? Jesus tells a challenging story that helps us understand what it means to receive our "fair share" in God's Kingdom.
Building on the good foundation of Jesus' words means learning to put the kind of forgiveness that God offers us into practice in our daily lives. Jesus tells an unforgettable story to make just that point.
