God wants us to become like Him; with a heart that shows sympathetic mercy to everyone. (Hesitating to condemn, criticize, judge. Patient with others who are in sin and in the wrong.) + When we are merciful toward others, God promises to have mercy on us.
Jesus calls us to love, not retaliate against our enemies--and promises that this kind of love brings God's favor. +By practicing love for our enemies we demonstrate the character of the Father.
Congratulations: There is a future reward in store for those who suffer hardships for Jesus' sake. Your suffering is not the end of the story. *Condolences: Those who focus only on the rewards and blessings of this life have their reward. The comfort of this life will be all the comfort they will enjoy.
Run the marathon of faith with endurance. (vs. 1-4) *Change your attitude towards the suffering you encounter--it's not a punishment, but an expression of your Father's love and His training with a purpose. (vs. 5-11)

Don't indulge your child. *Don't drive them to resentment. *Nurture their inner person in the way they God nurtures us. *Don't allow bitterness or resentment to become a habit in your marriage. *Your purpose is to develop a worshipper of God and a home where HE lives.

Make it a habit to love your wife. Don't make it a habit to be bitter towards her.
Parents are responsible to nourish their children with a diet that prepares them to live responsibly before God. The nourishment should consist of: + Training -- teaching life skills, how to live successfully and wisely. + Admonition -- more direct teaching with a moral direction.
Guard against provoking your children to resentment. *Why does Paul caution fathers about causing resentment? *What does it mean to provoke someone to resentment?
Part Two of Pastor Cole's series on parenting called : 'Don't Build Wall--Aim at the Heart'. Many Christian parents depend on Proverbs 22:6 as a lifetime guarantee. Some children chose the way they shouldn't. What went wrong? What did God really say in Proverbs 22:6? Two major pitfalls with the traditional rendering of Proverbs 22:6.
Pastor Cole's 5 part expository series on parenting called: "Don't Build Walls: Aim at the Heart" began today! Don't miss this vitally important series! Pastor and Michele will also combine with the men and ladies at their home on Thursday nights to answer questions anyone has on this series!
Jesus' prayer with His Father was a two way conversation. (Luke 6:12) We were created in order to have a two way conversation with God. (Selected Scripture )
Jesus relied on His Father's guidance to choose new leaders for a new nation. Jesus chose a diverse group of ordinary men as His successors.
Jesus deliberately healed on the sabbath, challenging the leader's misinterpretation of Scripture. *The religious leaders reacted to Jesus' healing with irrational anger.

Redeemer Bible Church St. Petersburg Sometimes offering someone friendship and the hospitality of a meal can be the best sermon - it could be someone first encounter with Christ. Jesus sought out the outcasts of society and of the religious order of His day. He called them to follow Him.
Redeemer Bible Church || St. Petersburg || Luke 5:17-26 Not all heroes speak or talk. But they are heroes, nonetheless. On one occasion, the important religious leaders in charge from all over Israel (a huge group) gathered to watch Jesus. But they became a roadblock rather than a road to healing.
Redeemer Bible Church || St. Petersburg || Luke 5:5-16 We will be talking about a man in the final stages of leprosy. He needed no coaching to go to Jesus. In fact, in contrast, to Peter's blind spot about his weakness, the leper was fully persuaded that he needed help.
Redeemer Bible Church || St. St Petersburg || Luke 5:1-11 After WW2 (1939-1945), a national silence gagged the German nation for the crimes they committed against Jewish people. Men, women, children, families, and friends, did not talk about it, write about it, paint about it, write songs about it, or make films about it.
Redeemer Bible Church || St. Petersburg || Luke 4:38-41 Luke showed that when Jesus traveled throughout Galilee, he encountered many POW camps, disguised as a synagogue, a home, or a village, Jesus encountered men and women who had been taken prisoner by the enemy, confined to their homes or bed by illnesses, weaknesses, or demonic spirits.
Redeemer Bible Church || St. Petersburg || Luke 4:31-37 Jesus was not a politician, a people pleaser, and he wasn't running for office. He did not adapt his teaching to suit his listeners' traditions or to make them feel comfortable. Jesus' teaching had authority: his teaching didn't create problems, but simply revealed them.
