Rescued (Good Friday 2020)

We are all rescued at the cross, the place that demonstrates the depth of our Savior’s love for the world–all sinners, including us. Good Friday is at the heart of Christianity where we see at the cross of Jesus both God’s holy justice and perfect love on display. The cross is also our guarantee that God can take the worst things ever, and make them work out for our ultimate good! Sermon Text: John 19:16-30

Love One Another (Maundy Thursday)

On Maundy Thursday, we are reminded of the reconciliation we have because of Christ’s body and blood given for the forgiveness of our sin.  We are also reminded of the example of self-giving love shown by our Lord as he washed the feet of his disciples. Sermon Text: John 13:1-17, 34-35

High Anxiety: Find Purpose in Suffering

When you’re suffering and in the middle of a tough time, it’s often difficult to find joy. The people to whom Peter was writing were being persecuted for sharing Jesus with their culture. Peter encourages them to “cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” We can learn from this advice too; when we focus on the promises of God and His love for us, rather than our earthly suffering, our perspective changes and we find purpose…

Live for God

Jesus is a life-changer. People who were once lost in sin are now alive in Christ. Peter reminds his readers of this when he writes, “they do not live the rest of their earthly lives for evil human desires, but rather for the will of God.” Live for God as seen in your purity and unity. This may not be popular in a culture who is against Christ, but God has you where you are to share the Gospel. Lead…

Hope Under Pressure

It’s a challenge to remain hopeful and not bitter when we’re under pressure. Let’s face it: we’re not going to always agree with the people around us. But that shouldn’t prevent us from serving them and caring for them. Peter calls his readers to “submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every human authority” and “repay evil with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing.” Do good in the world for Christ while…

Thriving in Exile

It’s hard to think about thriving while in a tough situation. It would be easier to hide our faith, worship God in private, and keep Him to ourselves. But that’s not what faith calls us to do. Peter tells us that we are a “chosen people … that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.” Our identity is in Christ, so the Holy Spirit is the governor of our hearts.…

Remain Hopeful – Living Hope

Peter tells those who read his letter, “set your hope on the grace to be brought to you when Jesus Christ is revealed at his coming.” Even when it seems difficult to live out our faith, Peter encourages us to fix our hope on Christ. What we think about the future affects the way we live in the present, so we can praise God for the living hope we have in Christ. Sermon Text: 1 Peter 1:1-25

Joseph: From Pride to Humility

Joseph knew he was destined for great things. His dreams were big, and he didn’t hesitate to share them with his family. His father loved him, and his brothers despised him. Eventually, however, God taught Joseph humility and guided him to heal the broken relationships in his family. Pride gets in the way of our family relationships too. But, with God’s help, we can become humble and reconcile ourselves to our families and to God. Scriptures: Romans 8:28-32 Sermon Text: Genesis 45:4-15

Ash Wednesday: The Cross

Jesus came to Earth to live a perfect life because we can’t. He knew his death would satisfy the wrath of God for all of us, and he loved us enough to go through with it. As we acknowledge the start of Lent on Ash Wednesday, we reflect on the purpose, the satisfaction, and love that came to fruition at the cross of Jesus. Sermon Text: Isaiah 53:6

Leah: From Unworthy to Accepted

Rachel was the pretty one. And Leah? Not so much. Leah’s father Laban had to trick Jacob into marrying her, and it was a marriage of obligation, not love. But despite how the world saw Leah, God saw her as his princess, blessing her with children from whom the Savior Jesus would come. Whether it’s because of your looks, your place in the family, or your past, you might feel unworthy of love in your family. But you are wholly…

Jacob: From Struggle to Embrace

Jacob always struggled and fought for his place in the world. From the time he was born until he made his way back to be reunited with Esau, Jacob wrestled with God’s plan for his life. Finally, he struggled and wrestled with God himself, finding the blessing he’d been looking for his whole life. If you have struggled to find your place in your family and in God’s family, know that God embraces you and sees you as His child.…

Abraham: From Doubt to Trust

God made some promises to Abraham that were hard for him to trust in. His offspring would outnumber the stars. And God made all these promises when Abraham was almost 100 years old without any children! Abraham doubted God’s promises and tried to take things into his own hands. Eventually, however, he came to trust God. When we’re facing family struggles, it can be difficult to be trust that God will keep his promises to bless those who stay close…
