It’s a Sabbath and Jesus is invited to dine with a prominent Pharisee which He accepts, knowing full well that they are just waiting for Him to make a wrong move. First off, they have positioned a crippled man in front of Jesus, never to shy away from a challenge He heals the man. He quiets their mumbling when He points out that if a son of theirs was lost on the Sabbath, would they not go and look for him? Throughout this chapter, Christ extols the virtue of people helping the cripples, the poor and those that cannot help themselves. When a wealthy man tries to invite his friends to a big banquet, they end up changing their mind this makes the man angry and invites many of the so called “dregs of humanity” to come and dine, and remember, these are the people with whom Jesus regularly associated.

- Embracing the Mission
- Ty THomas
The first passage that Jesus read on day one of His ministry was Isaiah 61:1-4 and when He said He fulfilled that Old Testament prophecy, the Jews got angry and wanted to kill Him. The church is more that concrete and steel and nice furnishings, that’s only part of it. Christians are the church family and when the bible talks of church, it’s the living part they are referring to. Are you part of the church or do you just attend church? Are you a player or a spectator? Why don’t we get involved? It’s mostly because its uncomfortable, we need to put aside our fears and be a reflector of God’s glory to people that would otherwise never see the inside of a church building never mind read the bible. Remember, we are the only bible that a some people read, so make sure you are walking in God’s glorious light to lead others out of the darkness.

- Start with the foundation
- Ty THomas
The forward looking strategies that Calvary Church has decided to pursue, require us to make some course adjustments to help us continue our mission of "Connecting People With God". When building a structure, it is important to start with a firm foundation and there is no firmer foundation than our Rock, Jesus Christ. Ty clarifies these 5 foundational strategies in today's sermon always remembering Psalm 127 verse 1 "Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain."

- This little light of mine
- Josué Villatoro and Ty Thomas
Remember the song the kids sang in Sunday school? "This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine". All Christians have the light of Jesus in their heart and we are exhorted to share it. The "Fill The House" theme is not about putting more people in the auditorium seats, it's about putting more people in touch with Jesus and then allowing the Holy Spirit to work in their heart. No one person can reach all of the unsaved, it is a team effort and The power of "doubling" is explained using an object lesson in this sermon
