Cary Cox, from Hebrews 5:11 – 6:3. The writer pauses his teaching on Christ’s priesthood to give a serious warning. He will warn against apostasy – turning finally from the faith. But first, he tells us what leads to apostasy: prolonged spiritual immaturity, which is caused by laziness in the things of God. When we fail to grow up in Christ we are walking on dangerous ground.

Cary Cox, from Matthew 20:17-34. To Serve and to give! Jesus said this is why he came. He is on the way to Jerusalem, looking to the cross. But the disciples are still looking toward personal gain and glory. Jesus again calls them (and us) to humility and self-denial in his kingdom. Just as Christ himself came to serve and to give his life for many! He is both our Ransom and our Example.
Pastor Cary Cox, from Matthew 10:34-42. We are a sent-out people that can expect persecution. But we are also a Christ-centered people. Jesus demands first place in our lives and hearts, a claim only God can make! Is there part of our lives that we are not surrendering to Christ?
Pastor Cary Cox, from Matthew 8:1-22. After showing Jesus’ authoritative teaching in the Sermon on the Mount, Matthew highlights the healings and miracles of Jesus. Jesus’ powerful actions showed his kingdom authority. And as we discover who Jesus is, we must respond by following him with total allegiance.
Pastor Cary Cox from Matthew 5:31-37. Jesus continues his hard sayings, his requirements for his disciples. His followers must be faithful in their marriage relationships, and completely truthful in their words. In this way the citizens of the kingdom of heaven are salt and light in a dark and broken world, for the glory of the King.
