Love…Nailed It

Forgiveness—it sounds so easy. Yet, there are times when we just can’t forgive, when we simply don’t want to forgive. If anyone had reason to feel that way, it was Jesus. Jesus, however, freely offers unconditional forgiveness even to the very men who nailed him to the cross. Forgive, God says, as I have forgiven you. Love forgives! Matthew 18:21-35, Luke 23:34

Love…Embraces All

We say we love all people, but when push comes to shove, we’re pretty selective about where we choose to live and the people we choose to hang out with. Jesus hung out (literally!) with individuals that we church people would deem “beneath us”. And he showed them the same love, the same grace. Love embraces all! John 3:14-21; Luke 23:43

A mother loves her child and will do everything she can to protect him. Even if the whole world turns against or gives up on her child, she’ll defend and speak well of him to the bitter end. How much greater is Jesus’ love as he seeks to protect his Father’s reputation and the physical well-being of his own mother. Love protects.  John 2:13-22; John 19:25-29

New Year Revolution: Love

Nothing we can do will make God love us less or love us more. Think about how that truth changes your life. Think about how that truth liberates you from the fears and self-imposed expectations that weigh you down. Think about what life would look like, how the world would change if you not only allowed yourself to be loved this way, but earnestly asked God to help you love others this way!
Sermon Text: 1 John 3:11-20

New Year Revolution: Community

Rugged individualism—it’s the ideal that this country was built on. Along with the two year old we proclaim: “I can do it myself!” I don’t need anybody. But the gospel is all about God coming alongside us and fulfilling our need. We need each other. We were created to live together in community, with strengths that bless another’s weakness. The gospel compels us and empowers us to live in community.
Sermon Text: Hebrews 10:19-24

What the World Needs: Good News

Christmas is a time when people think about and long for peace—in their own lives, in the world around us. Yet, no matter how many Christmases go by, peace continues to elude us. At least, when we’re looking for a worldly kind of peace. Christmas is truly good news, because it’s a message of true peace, peace with God and peace within ourselves. Isaiah 52:7-10

A wake-up call and the honest truth about ourselves—yes, we NEED these things; but, man, the truth is more than a little oppressive. What we need now is a little hope, a little help. Maybe more than a little help. We need deliverance. We need a savior! Isaiah 61:1-3, 10, 11

Truth (The Wake-Up Call)

The story of God’s people is like a broken record. All throughout the ages, again and again we forget who we are. We get distracted. Life and sin is a raging river that sweeps us up and carries us along. We need God to rend the heavens like he’s done so many times before, to come down, shake us up and wake us up (before it’s too late!) We need some tough love. Isaiah 63:16b,17; 64:1-8
