The World on Trial

by Mike Sasso

Today, we read of Jesus being tried by the religious leaders of His day. But it was they who were on trial. As the saying goes, “If you wrongly judge Christ, He will rightly judge you.” God sent His Son into the world to take our judgment upon Himself that we might not be judged. […]

What Could Possibly Torment God?

by Mike Sasso

Many today are understandably troubled over the idea of God tormenting people in fiery judgment for their sins. But are you aware that God demonstrated His love for us all that He took our torment so that we wouldn’t have to experience it (Romans 5:8)? The Bible clearly teaches us that (John 3:16). But in […]

That Your Faith Might Not Fail

There is much to learn from today’s text. Though we will only be covering four verses in Luke’s Gospel there are several lessons to learn from them that we don’t want to overlook.  Luke 22:31–34 (NLT) “Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift each of you like wheat.

It, like the Passover meal which it replaced, was intended by God to always keep in memory in the minds of Christians the most important work of Christ in saving mankind. […]

God is in Control

by Mike Sasso

One thing that really stood out to me as I was preparing Sunday’s message was that no matter what evil men or Satan himself plans and does, God is always in control. We see in today’s text that the devil put it in the heart of Judas to betray Christ. This ultimately led to the […]
