Hope in Doubt

With advertising, scammers, and social media, we are forced to be skeptics. If we don’t second guess what people tell us, we run the risk of being taken advantage of. But all this doubt can leave us feeling hopeless as we wonder if we can believe anything we hear. Thomas felt the same way as you. He heard that Jesus was alive, but he didn’t want to believe it until he saw and touched Jesus. And then, when Jesus appeared…

Hope in Grief

In the last year, we’ve all experienced grief. We’ve lost opportunities, experiences, and jobs. The way we connect with others isn’t ideal. Some of us have lost loved ones. Many of us have lost hope. On the first Easter, Mary Magdalene, her friends, and the disciples grieved over Jesus. They thought their hope of a Savior was dead with him in the tomb. But then… the tomb was empty. Jesus was alive! Even when you’re in the depths of despair,…

Hope After Failure

We all make mistakes. Some of our failures are small and insignificant, solved with an apology or a quick fix. But for other mistakes, those ones that haunt our dreams and change the courses of our lives, we’re stuck with guilt and shame. This is the kind of mistake Peter made. After he denied Jesus three times, he feels like there’s nothing he can do about his failure in faith. But Jesus gives him hope, forgiving him and entrusting him…

Jesus the Victor (Easter at Victory)

Jesus is the King who not only leads us into battle; he fights our battles for us and wins. An empty tomb means that our “defeats” are hallow wins for our enemy. An empty tomb means that our victory in Christ is sure even when there are setbacks along the way. The victory that you have been looking for is already yours in the resurrected and victorious King. And because of that, it’s time to celebrate! Sermon Text: 1 Corinthians 15:1-11,…
savior

Jesus the Savior (Good Friday)

Jesus is the suffering servant. On the day we now know as Good Friday, he willingly and humbly allowed himself not only to suffer, but also to be condemned in our place. And so, by his perfect life and innocent death, Jesus is the Savior of the world. His sacrifice is the reason you are reconciled to God. Sermon Text: Isaiah 53
teacher

Jesus the Teacher (Maundy Thursday)

Throughout the Gospels, we see Jesus is an expert teacher. He connects history with a new teaching “covenant,” making his lessons memorable for his followers and for us. His teaching is applicable and wise for salvation for all people. Jesus teaches us about himself and his work, which we are reminded of every time we take the Lord’s Supper. Sermon Text: Luke 22:19-20
king

Jesus the King (Palm Sunday)

On the day we now know as Palm Sunday, the people of Jerusalem celebrated Jesus as their king. They waved palm branches in the air, laid down their cloaks for him, and shouted “Hosanna!” But he didn’t ride in on a white horse. He wasn’t followed by an army, and he wasn’t adorned with gold and jewels. He is a gentle and humble King, who is exactly who we need. Sermon Text: Matthew 21:1-11

Lead with Humility

Wisdom and knowledge are often confused. Knowledge is readily available and just a click away. Wisdom, however, is knowing how to use that knowledge and recognizing the source behind it. Leaders need to know how to remain humble and lead with wisdom. God teaches us in his Word to use the wisdom of Heaven to humble ourselves and recognize our need for Jesus. Sermon Text: James 3:13-18

Listen to Learn

In our culture, we’re taught to speak our minds, and those who speak loudest and often are heard. But God has a different view. God’s Word teaches us how powerful our words can be. Instead of speaking everything that comes to mind, Christians are encouraged to “tame our tongues” and listen first. We can use our tongues to change the direction of people’s lives by sharing Jesus with them. Sermon Text: James 3:1-12

Living Our Faith

We do not have to do anything to earn God’s grace. But that doesn’t mean we don’t do good in the world around us. God teaches us that “faith without deeds is dead”. In other words, God wants us to serve and care for others as a reflection of His love in our communities. When we trust in Jesus with our mind, body, and soul and live our faith by doing good, our faith is living and active and does…

Put People First

We often judge a person based on their appearance. But appearances are deceiving. The world may have taught us to look at and treat people a certain way based on their appearance or social status, but God teaches us to treat all people with mercy, loving all our neighbors as ourselves. Jesus didn’t and doesn’t discriminate against anyone; he lived, died, and rose for all. Sermon Text: James 2:1-13

Resist Temptation, Embrace Trials

Temptation looks different for everyone. But no matter what it looks like for you, something disguised as acceptable by our culture tempts your sinful heart. Whether it’s food, images, people, or something else, there are tons of things that can pull us far away from what God wants for our lives. It’s easy to slide from temptation into sin, but you can resist with the help of God. Trials are opportunities for us to grow in faith and mature in…
