Sometimes, if we want to live, we have to give up something that’s killing us. We’ll almost never want to do it. Jesus says this is why it's impossible for rich people to enter the kingdom of God. 

Everything we have must be put under His Lordship. Every single thing. The question is always: Lord, what do You want me to do with this all this stuff You’ve given me?

He will tell you. But you probably won’t like His answer—not at first. The things you possess will try to possess you. 

There is good news for rich people but you'll have to listen to what Jesus says to hear it.

1. Receive the kingdom of God like a child or you won't receive it.
2. Does that mean trying really hard to be like a child? Haha. (No.)
3. Church is not optional.
4. Jesus shared His Father with us. What more do you want?

The Pharisee and The Tax Collector like you've never heard it. A pretty good case can be made they went to the temple to pray on The Day of Atonement—which changes everything you thought you knew about this parable. 

Also, what's the deal with the rainbow text? You might be surprised.

Jesus teaches how to pray for what you want and never lose heart. Seems like an important thing to pay attention to. What if God isn't going to do anything until you ask? In this teaching, Pastor Frank gives at least 17 important clues on how to pray so God will answer you.

Don't bother listening if you think everything is perfect and nothing in the world needs to fixed—if you don't need anything or if you already know everything. But for the rest of us...

The Apocalypse of Jesus.
When will the kingdom of God come?
Where will the kingdom of God be?
What about The Rapture? Hmmm

In the end, the only thing we will have is whatever we have given to God for safekeeping.

Most people aren't familiar with the story of Jesus and the Ten Leopards. One of His rare recorded incidents with wildlife. 

No. Ten Lepers. Very different thing.

Here are some ideas this sermon will cover:

  1. The shortest path was never a straight line. Going straight toward Jesus is a long and winding road. Every time.
  2. Doing things you don't want to do is how to get to do the things you really want to do.
  3. The story of how Kemper Crabb and Frank Hart became friends.
  4. Your sin is more gross than a leper's ginger root nub of fingers.
  5. Your faith in Jesus will heal you. Eventually. Keep walking in the direction He tells you to go.

Pastor Frank applied ten verses to Mom in practical ways for Mother's Day but don't let that fool you—this is strong medicine for all of us.

Most people say they believe in some kind of afterlife. People of faith, as well as scientists who are only looking at physical evidence. So what happens after we die? What did Jesus Himself actually say about heaven and hell? This is a story about a rich man and a poor man who both die—Jesus gives us a lot to think about here. If you listen, and believe what He's saying, it could have eternal ramifications.

People often try to deceive others and hide their true actions, but when the truth is exposed, it can cause anger and outrage. This can be seen in various situations, such as social media personalities promoting products they have never used, politicians going against their campaign promises, athletes cheating with performance-enhancing drugs, preachers committing the sins they preach against, and individuals putting on a show of devoutness while making everyone miserable at home. The truth can expose insecurities and self-delusion, leading to anger and frustration.

God's Law defines sin and guides us on how to live our lives, but we all fall short and make mistakes, which is called sin. It is a fatal error that cannot be ignored or excused. However, through the Gospel, Jesus forgives our sins and justifies us before God, defining us by who we are in Christ, rather than by our failures or successes. The Law shows us the standard, and the Gospel offers forgiveness and salvation.

Use your money to make friends, not your friends to make money. What if in order to get into heaven, you have to be welcomed by someone who you told Jesus canceled their debt? This is the weirdest story Jesus ever told.

What would happen if we applied the same standard to the resurrection of Jesus that we apply to other historical stories? Folklore. Myth. How do you think it would hold up? Do you think we’d find any real evidence? Or do you think it’s all just going to come down to faith? That we can’t really be sure about it?

In this sermon, Pastor Frank will attempt to give you a bit more confidence in the claims Jesus made about Himself and the historical evidence of His resurrection.

If Jesus Christ rose from the dead then nothing else matters.
If He didn’t, then nothing matters.

This is a story about two lost sons. Which one do you relate to the most?

I think we all start off as the prodigal son. We make a mess of our lives (“Reckless living.” “extravagant.” Wasteful with everything God gave us.) then we come back to the Father, and find out how merciful and forgiving He is with us—He takes us back no matter what we’ve done and we just stand in His presence interrupted by grace, thankful for His kindness and generosity. Fully restored.

But then, after just a short time, too many of us become like the older brother.

Disown your heavenly Father at your own risk. Raise your fist to heaven and say, “I’m sick of You, I’m sick of Your church, I’m sick of your rules, I’m sick of waiting to die before I can have all those good things You’ve promised me in heaven!” If you live like there is no God, ignore His wisdom, selfishly grasp for wealth and pleasure recklessly—find out where that gets you.

Well, our prodigal punk had sunk as low as he was going to go. He came to himself—came to his senses. This is his story and it directly affects all of us.

You will be interrupted by grace.

If God filled up your church with people who looked like nasty sinners to you—the wrong kind of people—who would those people be? What do they look like? 

We always seem to think “repent” is something we have to do in order for Jesus to save us. I want to challenge that a little.

What did the sheep do to repent? Nothing.
What did the coin do to repent? Coins can't do much.

The church has done a terrific job of letting the lost know they aren’t really welcome. Not until they repent. Not until they’re where they should be. Not until they change.

Not until they find their own way out of the lake.

That’s not how grace works. Grace jumps in and pulls you out of the water.

Who are you? Are you a winner? A loser? Are you the coolest person in the room? The smartest? The funniest? Are you defined by your success or your accomplishments? We all look at the wrong things in life to give us validation and self-worth. Frank Kelske gives a vulnerable message on the dangers of finding our identity in anything or anyone other than Jesus Christ. This is a message that can help you find greater peace and fulfillment in your life.

I have a love/hate relationship with Jesus. That probably sounds wrong but I think it’ll make sense after you listen to this message. Jesus says in this passage of Luke that we must have a love/hate relationship with everything in the world. We must hate everything we love. Hate. This wouldn’t have sounded any friendlier to them than it does to us.

How should Christians feel about parties?

Jesus teaches us about the importance of humility, generosity, and not making everything about ourselves. He reminds us that true joy is not found when we selfishly grasp for pleasure but by our willingness to serve others and honor God. A humble party rather than a pity party.

How should Christians feel about parties? Should we go to parties? 
Jesus uses a humble party to teach us about the kingdom of heaven. 

You are invited to join us for this transformative sermon on Luke 14:1-24, where we will dive deeper into how Jesus calls us to view parties and discover how we can apply it to other aspects of our lives. Don't miss out on this opportunity to experience the life-changing power of God's Word.

What role has been assigned for you to play in the story of your life? In this video, you may discover a way to look at your story that will change your life forever.

This is the central point of Luke's travel narrative. Jesus is traveling to Jerusalem and nothing is going to stop Him from fulfilling His destiny.

The Gospel is a limited-time offer. You can’t push the door open by being good, the door is only open because Jesus is holding it open for you. Strive to enter now, drag your friends in, too. The offer expires when you expire (or when He comes back down here.) Pray for urgency! Too many of us are living in apathy.

Say what you need to say, plant the seed, and then let God do what He wants with it. A little Gospel changes everything. We live in a culture that is repulsed by the way Christians have misrepresented the Gospel. We need to change that—Little by little.

Last week we talked about how God tells husbands to love their wives. This week is all about how wives need to respect their husbands. Unconditional respect. If he isn't loving you the way you want to be loved, if your relationship is "off," there's a good chance the reason is that he doesn't feel respected.

It's probably because she doesn't feel loved. That's usually the problem. Also, there's a really good chance neither of you actually know what love is. I can help you if you give me a chance—well, God can. Your relationships aren't about you.

You are the problem in all your relationships. You don’t know everything. You have to unlearn, untwist, and with great humility—hear what God has to say to you about how to treat the people in your life. You can’t learn something you think you already know. This is a message on grace. The Gospel. It's also about submission, marriage, sex, and parenting.

We don't pass our faith to our children by bludgeoning them with the holy standard of God's Commandments—rather, we are to love God's standard. If we love God's standard, then we teach them to love it, too.
