Sermons from March 2023
Pastor Donnie takes a look at Jesus’ encounter with a leader of the Pharisees, who invited Jesus to a meal and placed an obviously ill man in front of him to see if Jesus would again heal on the Sabbath Day. Spoiler alert: Jesus does heal, and questions the Pharisee about his apparent legalistic lack of compassion.
Today Craig Schafer takes a look at Jesus’ encounter with a woman who cleansed the Lord’s feet with her tears and hair, and anointed them with expensive ointment … much to the disdain of the meal’s host, who only saw her as a sinner whom he thought Jesus should shun. Instead Jesus said that her sins, which were many, were forgiven because of her great faith in Him.
Today Pastor Donnie teaches about Jesus’ encounter with Zacchaeus, the “wee little” tax collector (as the children’s song says) whose name means “pure and righteous,” and who was anything but until the day he met Jesus.
Jesus healed 10 lepers at one time, but only one returned and said thanks. Pastor Donnie says gratitude that is only felt, but not expressed, is incomplete.
