When There is Pain…Forgive

Retaliation is easier than to forgive. It may seem more satisfying to “get back” at those who hurt us. But in the end, we’re left feeling worse because the guilt of retribution is added to the grudge we hold. Jesus had every right to be angry; he was condemned to death despite complete innocence. Yet, some of his last words were asking his Father to forgive us. What would our lives look like if we chose forgiveness over retaliation? Sermon…

Repent and Know God

Jonah finally follows God’s directive after getting spit out by the fish.  He heads to Ninevah to tell the people of their impending destruction. The people repent, and God forgives them. Well done Jonah and thank you God! Sharing the Law and the Gospel is the easiest and also the most difficult thing in the world. But God calls us to share Him with the world, even when it’s difficult because he is a patient God who wants all people…

High Expectations

We all struggle with sin, but we deceive ourselves into thinking we don’t. Sometimes, the world around us tricks us into thinking we’re basically good people. But, we are by nature sinful. We need to confess our sins to God because confession brings cleansing, healing, and forgiveness. God knows all our sins, and that’s why he sent Jesus, whose sacrifice was enough to pay for them all.Sermon Text: Ephesians 2:8-10

The Blame Game

We all struggle when we play the blame game. When things go wrong, we blame our-selves for not being enough. We blame our friends and family. And, whether we admit it or not, we blame God. While it’s important to take responsibility when we’re at fault and allow others to face the consequences for their actions, the real culprit for our struggles is sin. So, to stop the struggle with blame, we can rely on Jesus, who took the blame for our sin. Genesis 3:8-15

Christmas Eve 2018

Christmas is stressful. Buying gifts, wrapping presents, grocery shopping, traveling… it is all so exhausting. You may spend so much time and effort preparing for the holidays that you don’t have much time and effort left to enjoy it. But what if that all changed? What if this holiday brought you a sense of joy, hope, and acceptance? What if there was more to Christmas than the hustle and bustle we find ourselves immersed in every year? The good news:…

Sibling Rivalry

It is heartwarming to see siblings hug each other, hold hands, and interact in friendly ways. Unfortunately, this is not the status quo in many families. Sibling rivalry results in wrestling matches, hurtful words, and damaged relationships. Forgiveness doesn’t always come as easy as an apology, especially for adult siblings. But God calls us to forgive others as He forgives us, and this includes our siblings. Sermon Text: Genesis 50

Faith Treasures Jesus’ Forgiveness

Failing Forward

A man’s greatest fear is failure, and his greatest pain is regret. When we fail, we choose remorse all too often. Yet, what we really need is repentance. Even in our failures, God can still accomplish His purpose. Sermon Text: Judges 16:23-31

Small Steps Towards Big Destruction

Samson: Watch those Small Steps Samson didn’t ruin his life all at once. He did it one step at a time. All the little compromises in our lives add up. Being in the Word opens our eyes to this deadly downward spiral and empowers us to take steps that lead to a different path. Scriptures: Judges 16:1-22; 2 Timothy 2:1-3; Mark 4:1-20 Sermon Text: Judges 16:1-22

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

New Year Revolution: Hope

This world is dark. There seems to be no end to sickness, sadness and struggle. There is so much prejudice and spiteful pride. The darkness is oppressive. Into this darkness God speaks a message of hope, a message of rescue, forgiveness, a second chance, new life. This hope is food for our weary souls. Sermon Text: Matthew 2:1-12
Prayer is Powerful, problems

Create in Me a Clean Heart

After King David blew it bigtime, he learned that the only way to find peace again was to come completely clean before God. When he did, David discovered that God would not cast him away, but rather God longed to restore him through full and free forgiveness received by faith. Psalm 51
