The Good Samaritan

David Banister

Download link (July 26, 2020)

30 Jesus replied, “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell into the hands of robbers, who stripped him, beat him up, and went off, leaving him half dead. 31 Now by chance a priest was going down that road, but when he saw the injured man he passed by on the other side. 32 So too a Levite, when he came up to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. 33 But a Samaritan who was traveling came to where the injured man was, and when he saw him, he felt compassion for him. 34 He went up to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring olive oil and wine on them. Then he put him on his own animal, brought him to an inn, and took care of him. 35 The next day he took out two silver coins and gave them to the innkeeper, saying, ‘Take care of him, and whatever else you spend, I will repay you when I come back this way.’

Flesh vs Spirit – Which Will it Be?

Bro. David Banister

8 There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. 2 For the law of the life-giving Spirit in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and death. 3 For God achieved what the law could not do because it was weakened through the flesh. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and concerning sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, 4 so that the righteous requirement of the law may be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.

The Sower

David Banister

3 He told them many things in parables, saying: “Listen! A sower went out to sow. 4 And as he sowed, some seeds fell along the path, and the birds came and devoured them. 5 Other seeds fell on rocky ground where they did not have much soil. They sprang up quickly because the soil was not deep. 6 But when the sun came up, they were scorched, and because they did not have sufficient root, they withered. 7 Other seeds fell among the thorns, and they grew up and choked them. 8 But other seeds fell on good soil and produced grain, some a hundred times as much, some sixty, and some thirty. 9 The one who has ears had better listen!”

Day and Hour Unknown

Bro. David Banister

36 “But as for that day and hour no one knows it—not even the angels in heaven—except the Father alone. 37 For just like the days of Noah were, so the coming of the Son of Man will be. 38 For in those days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day Noah entered the ark. 39 And they knew nothing until the flood came and took them all away. It will be the same at the coming of the Son of Man. 40 Then there will be two men in the field; one will be taken and one left. 41 There will be two women grinding grain with a mill; one will be taken and one left.[…]

Sunday Morning LIVE

Preliminary tests have been successful streaming audio of the morning worship service. July 5th I am going to make the stream public. The stream is powered using a mini computer called a Raspberry Pi (pronounced PIE). The Raspberry Pi will be streaming audio only.

Raspberry Pi stream box

Listen online beginning at 10:50am Sunday Morning.

http://live.christianheightsumc.org/stream

You may bookmark the above link ahead of time if you wish, but the link will only work during the scheduled worship time. During worship time any listener can click the link above and a new window will open with a player. If the player stops or disconnects you can try refreshing the same link again to reconnect.

I have a BIG ASK though, if you listen to the stream for any length of time I need you to email me at feedback@christianheightsumc.org with details about your experience. Helpful information would be:

  • How long did you listen?
  • Did you experience good audio quality? Volume? Dropped connections?
  • What kind of device did you listen on?
  • General comments. All other comments about how the stream works and thoughts to improve it.
