When dealing with life’s disappointments and disasters, the empty tomb brings healing to our hearts. Hopelessness turns to hope. Faith refined—hope in the midst of suffering. Sermon Text: 1 Peter 1:3-9
Simeon’s story helps us understand that peace is not linked to an absence of conflict or pain, but to the assurance that God keeps His word.
The most intimate relationships in life are found in the home. This also makes them the most difficult. Yet, what amazing things God can accomplish when the entire family works together to serve the Lord!
In grace, God has brought us into his family through faith in Christ. Nothing is more important than remaining in Christ through life and in death. Sermon Text: John 15:1-8
Imagine a world without death. Easter means that we don’t need to imagine. It’s already a reality. Sermon Text: 1 Corinthians 15:21-34
How can I know that I am truly forgiven? Learn how the empty tomb is the guarantee that every wrong we’ve ever committed has been wiped off the face of the earth. Sermon Text: 1 Corinthians 15:12-20
Life after death only happens in fairy tales or the movies. Are we really supposed to believe that a man who lived and died two thousand years ago is alive and well today? Sermon Text: 1 Corinthians 15:1-11
We think we’re so strong. Yet, when put to the test, how often we come up falling short! When we come up short, however, may God give us the strength to be more like Peter than Judas.
The most important part of getting spiritually unstuck often is forgetting what is behind, and straining toward what is ahead. We see this especially in the life of the Apostle Paul whose life was radically changed by God when he realized that he could never earn his way into heaven by striving harder and harder. In fact, Paul started moving forward in his faith only when he understood clearly that he could stop striving to earn heaven because it was earned by Christ’s perfect striving.
Sermon Text: Philippians 3:17-14
There are so many pious people out there who spend their lives sincerely working out their own way to God. How could a loving God condemn them? Why does there have to be only one way to heaven? Sermon Text: John 14:1-6
