Do You Feel Like a Grape?       July 11, 2009
In Matthew 7:13, Jesus describes two paths, two ways of life. We have a choice in our life's journey. We can go the easy way, the wide path, in which many go, or we can respond to God's calling and embark on the Way that leads to life eternal. He describes that Way as narrow and difficult, but urges us to choose that Way for a glorious destiny in the Kingdom of God.

Reaping & Sowing       August 29, 2009
There are many types of wheat. There are common wheat, durum wheat, and many others. Are we like the man who plants a type of wheat seed and when we harvest or reap we get a result we did not expect? Many times we put down a winter wheat and end up with corn. What we sow is what we reap. We have the opportunity to sow good seed and reap good fruit.

The Truth       Oct 31, 2009
People search for it, sometimes their whole life. Garnant answers the question, “With all the church out there, why are we at church today an why here?” from the 2nd and 3rd epistles of John. Truth vs belief. Love for the truth. Walking in the truth. Loving those in the truth.
Nehushtan       Dec 5, 2009
Story of Moses’ bronze serpent. Why it was necessary; what it symbolized; what its purpose was. How does it relate to Christianity? How tall was it? Where does it show up in our society today? Isn’t it a graven image? How does it relate to Nicodemus? Parallels between Numbers 21 and John 3. We are blessed with a great perspective, which should give us much comfort and gratitude that comes from knowing our sins have been cleansed.
The True Context of Matthew 18       Dec 19, 2009
Intro – how to respond to “Merry Christmas”. Garnant looks at Matthew 18:15-17 but in the context of the entire chapter of Matthew 18. – be childlike, - avoiding sin, - avoiding offending, - reconciliation as the goal, - humble, innocent, forgiving, - person to person meeting, - forgiveness. “Binding and loosing” and “the church” are not specifically addressed because of the bigger point of the Matthew 18. Bottom line – forgive.
The Mystery of the Vineyard       Dec 26, 2009
