Host: George Borghardt The trap of doing something to our neighbor that they did to us is ever present in our world. We see today playing out in our world. We try to do it to our neighbors all the time. Remember that the answer to this temptation is Christ, the one who died on the cross for you and took away your sins so you no longer have to live chained to that temptation any longer. About the H...

Host: George Borghardt The parable of the Pharisee and the Publican (Tax Collector)! We like to push ourselves up while pushing others down like the Pharisee. We like to think that we’re the Tax Collector but even when we're the Tax Collector we still don't measure up. But don’t fret, the Gospel reminds you that no matter how bad you define yourself as something you’re not or how much you fall sho...

Host: George Borghardt We’re back today with part two of the parable of the unjust steward. We got the base meaning down yesterday, but what is the true meaning of parable? The true riches that being given away are the forgiveness of sins and the gifts from God. There is a Man that we know that gives His Father’s stuff away. That Man is Christ, and you should read this parable as if Christ is the ...

Host: George Borghardt A Blessed Mary Magdalene’s Day to you! She is the first to get to the tomb on Easter morning, and the first to see Jesus after he reveals himself to her. There is no greater comfort to us sinners than the story of Mary Magdalene. She had demons cast out of her, was referred to by the disciples as only a “sinner”. She was one of the greatest sinners of all, and He saved her. ...

Host: George Borghardt Christ came to this world not to abolish the Law and the Prophets, but instead to fulfill them. The Law and its condemnation of you dies with Calvary! The Law and the Prophets are fulfilled when Christ lays down His life for you. His death and resurrection is your death and resurrection, so that you might use the Law to love and serve your neighbor. Your Old Adam has been dr...
