Foolproof Choices

How do you make decisions about what you will eat or drink or about what you will wear? Our culture tells us, “If it feels good do it! It’s your right! It’s your freedom!” But making decisions based only on our personal happiness can harm others. And that would be foolish. Paul sees the Corinthian Christians living like that. They were eating at pagan festivals in front of new Christians who were trying to separate from their old, pagan way…

Foolproof Marriage

One of the most important decisions we make is who, when, or if we are going to marry. Our culture teaches that marriage is about our own personal happiness. Therefore, we should choose to marry someone only insofar as that person makes us happy. The new Christians in the Corinthian church inherited that same mindset from their culture. So, Paul teaches them to look at marriage as an opportunity to sacrificially commit to another person in Christ. (Paul does talk…

Foolproof Morals

Our culture tells us that happiness comes from having the freedom to choose your own morality. To be open-minded and accepting of every lifestyle is considered a virtue. First Century Corinthian culture was the same. They were proud to say, “Everything is permissible!” But Paul shared a message with them that seemed foolish. He said that all people could “come as they are” to the Christian church, but Jesus didn’t want them to stay as they are. Christians have been…

Foolproof Followers

We are all tempted to scroll through YouTube, Facebook, or the latest podcast to find the sage who will unlock the secret to true happiness. We look to leaders who have charisma and success. We can even look at our favorite spiritual leaders in the same way. But often, we find out that those leaders are broken people with flaws just like all of us. The Corinthians fell into the same trap. They put their faith in leaders who had…

Everyday Christmas

Buddy the Elf is a bit overwhelming to his newfound father, Walter. Buddy’s obsession with Christmas – particularly singing Christmas songs loudly – is foreign to Walter, who is a no-nonsense businessman. However, when he is faced with the possibility of losing his son forever, Walter joins in the Christmas chorus to bring Buddy home. Christmas gets built up in our minds as a list of expectations and to-do items. We sometimes find ourselves glad that it’s over. But Jesus…

Blessed Through the Savior

Ebenezer Scrooge had no need for Christmas. In fact, he seemed to despise anything good, such as compassion, empathy, and charity. But when he’s forced to look back on his life and sees things from different perspectives, he realizes that life isn’t worth living if you’re only living for yourself. We may get caught up in the allure of accumulating materials, money, and accomplishments. But in the end, we can’t take anything with us. None of us is good enough…

Changing Hearts

The Grinch has one goal: stop Christmas at all costs. He plots and schemes to get rid of all Christmas from Whoville by stealing trees, presents, food, and anything that hints at Christmas. But, when he witnesses the people of Whoville celebrating Christmas without the material goods, he has a change of heart. Without God, our hearts are hard. They deceive us and lead us to act and think in ways that go against God’s will for us. When we…

Unexpectedly Wonderful

George Bailey has had enough. He’s always working, always sacrificing, and it seems to get him nowhere. When he faces losing the family business that he never wanted to run in the first place, he contemplates ending it all. However, he gets the opportunity to see what the world would be like without him and recognizes how wonderful his life really is. Things don’t always turn out the way we’ve planned. This gets frustrating to us because we think we…

Never Alone

Kevin McAllister got left behind by his family. It was fun for a little while, but eventually it was scary and dangerous for him. But through it all, he had people caring for him and looking out for him. From the scary old neighbor who ended up saving him from robbers to his mother who tirelessly worked to get home to her son, Kevin realized that he was never truly alone. We all have times when we feel lost and…

God’s Good Promise

Especially among Christians, the Christmas countdown often includes putting ourselves in the place of Old Testament believers. They habitually thought about those Old Testament promises that pointed them to the coming of the Messiah, the promised Savior of all sinners worldwide. They were part of the original Christmas countdown, awaiting the Savior’s birth. As we focus on a special promise that God purposely repeated when he shared information through his prophet Jeremiah, we join this countdown. Sermon Text: Jeremiah 33:14-16

Jesus’ Generosity is Good for All People

Some people have become wary of the Christian Church because they feel that they just ask for money. At times, we all get frustrated that we don’t have as much as someone else. But we find in God’s Word that Jesus is unendingly generous. All that we have – wealth, abilities, status – is from God. And the most important gift he gives to us is grace. Because of Jesus’ generosity, Christians can be inspired to serve others and give…

Jesus is Good for Scientific Progress

Some have left the Christian Church because they heard that Christianity hinders scientific progress. But Scripture shows that Jesus loved the natural world and taught us to investigate it so that we might know the Creator even better. When we look at Jesus’ words, we will actually be encouraged to study science, discovering out the world works. And we will find that Christianity is good for scientific progress. Scriptures: Matthew 6:25-34
