Sermons on God Reveals Himself

The hidden God gives us a peak into his justice and his love through the means of Grace – the good new of the Gospel in Word and Sacrament.

Using the Word to Reach The One

The Bible is the true word of God. How can we partner with God and reach “the one” God has placed in our lives? We cannot trick people into the Kingdom or sell them on Jesus. He tells the story of The Rich Man and Poor Lazarus to show us that if a person will not listen to the Word of God, they will not listen to anything else we have to say. Jesus says that it is the Word…

Jesus: The Embodiment of Wisdom

Proverbs 8 personifies wisdom. It speaks of wisdom being the person who created the world. John 1 picks up on this idea, describing Jesus as the Word made flesh. Paul calls Jesus “the wisdom of God.” God’s greatest revelation of wisdom is in the Gospel. It seems foolish to us at first. But his death and resurrection to reconcile the world to himself reveal the height, depth, width, and length of his wisdom and love. Sermon Text: Proverbs 8:12, 27-31…

God: The Source of Wisdom

We need to know that God is the source of all true wisdom. Instead of beginning with Google, we need to begin with God. We might think that only the last and most recent ideas are the wisest. But true wisdom stands the test of time. We see this theme throughout Scripture, starting with the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Adam and Eve had a choice: either they could trust God’s view of good and bad, or they…

Hope Is Here (Christmas Eve)

Some people who read the Christmas story of the birth of Jesus think it sounds made-up. However, as Christian believers, as those who believe in Jesus Christ and the hope He brings, we realize that, ultimately, in the most unbelievable moments, Jesus is not just a story. In the craziest of situations, in the times when it seems like there is no way the situation could change, we realize that Jesus is hope! The birth of that special baby on…

Hope is Real

There is real transforming power in realizing that hope is not merely a concept that glosses over the pain of life. Hope is real. When hope becomes real to us, we can see and experience its benefits. It provides a substance to that which is not seen. Often, life can feel dull and empty. However, as hope becomes real, our lives take on a new meaning, new concept, and quite a new purpose. Sermon Text: Luke 1:26-38

Hope Changes Me

When we allow ourselves to think that where we are is always where we will be, we lose hope. We lose a sense of determination and confidence in the future. But what creates this hope in the future is the fact that God makes us promises that He will be with us, He will guide us, and He will bless us if we stay strong in His promises. There are many circumstances that attempt to rob us of our hope:…

Hope is Coming

Sometimes in a season of waiting in life, we feel forgotten. We feel as if God lost our address and does not even know where we are. However, we must remind ourselves that hope is coming. As we enter the season of Advent, let us track hope as it arrives into the lives of some of the key people in the birth narrative of Jesus. We will find out that God will never leave us or forget us. Hope is…

Imitating God: Absurd Generosity

Absurd Generosity Imagine the world around you without God. Having a hard time doing this? That’s because it’s impossible. In this introduction to the series, we’ll recognize the absurd generosity that God shows to us, which sets the groundwork for why we give to others. We are called to be generous because our Father in Heaven spares nothing for our good. God is the first and most generous giver. Scripture: Malachi 3:6-12 Sermon Text: Exodus 34:6-7

Love…Sees It Through

Love is hard. There are so many times when we’re just weary. We give and give and give and never seem to get anything back. Jesus displayed so much love through his life and ministry. He had every right to expect a little something back. But human love is always tainted by selfish motivations. Still that’s the thing about God’s love. It’s committed. It does what it needs to do. Love sees it through. Mark 11:1-10, John 19:28-30

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
