But because of what God’s done in Jesus, there’s a way you can be reconciled and be certain about the future Outline While we were… Christ died… to justify, reconcile, and save.

Blind and Seeing

Haves and Have Nots
What do you need to do to enter God’s kingdom? A bloke who seemed to have everything going for him, asked Jesus this question.

Outline Watch yourselves (vv1-6) Serve humbly (vv7-10) with thankfulness (vv11-19)

Rich and Poor
Would you be convinced if someone were to rise from the dead? In this message, we listen to another story Jesus told.
