God Blesses Us

Because they could not see how God blesses them, the Israelites wandered in the desert for 40 years. Over and over again, they grumbled and rebelled against God. Yet, God was still with them and loved them. We see God’s steadfast love in the story of Balaam. Balaam was a sorcerer, who was hired to curse the Israelites. But he came to see that he could not curse those whom God has blessed. Maybe some people wonder of God is…

God Saves Us

God saved His people from slavery in Egypt. After traveling through the desert, the Israelites were finally close to the Promised Land. But then God changed their direction. The people started to grumble and God allowed them to be bitten by snakes. In his grace, he provided healing through the bronze snake. When the consequences of our sin leave us in pain, Jesus says that we can look to him who was lifted up on the cross. He will save…

Who Told You… God isn’t Loving Because There’s Suffering?

The reality of suffering is one of the most challenging objections to the God of the Bible. But Scripture does not shy away from the subject. Much of Scripture validates pain and guilt. And yet, the Scriptures don’t give an airtight answer to all our suffering. Instead, God tells us a story of a good world that went bad because of human’s free decision. But it also tells us about a God who steps into this world of pain and…

Hope Lives (Easter 2020)

Sometimes, it’s hard to believe that we need a Savior. Other times, we can’t imagine why Jesus would love us enough to die for us. People tell us Jesus was just a man, punished wrongfully, who died almost 2,000 years ago. But he’s much more than that. On the day we now celebrate as Good Friday, Jesus rescued us from our sin. And three days later, on Easter, He rose from the dead. Because of his resurrection, Hope lives forever…

Rescued (Good Friday 2020)

We are all rescued at the cross, the place that demonstrates the depth of our Savior’s love for the world–all sinners, including us. Good Friday is at the heart of Christianity where we see at the cross of Jesus both God’s holy justice and perfect love on display. The cross is also our guarantee that God can take the worst things ever, and make them work out for our ultimate good! Sermon Text: John 19:16-30

Ash Wednesday: The Cross

Jesus came to Earth to live a perfect life because we can’t. He knew his death would satisfy the wrath of God for all of us, and he loved us enough to go through with it. As we acknowledge the start of Lent on Ash Wednesday, we reflect on the purpose, the satisfaction, and love that came to fruition at the cross of Jesus. Sermon Text: Isaiah 53:6

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…

Wanting the Real God

Jonah’s in too deep. Literally. As he sits in the belly of the fish, Jonah prays a prayer of repentance and thankfulness to God. Jonah recognizes how God is working on his heart so he can share God with the people of Ninevah. We too find ourselves in the pit of despair, and it’s here where we recognize our deep need for a Savior. Moments like this help us see clearly why we need to share Jesus with the world,…

I’ll Make Everything New

The delayed gratification of eternity is sometimes too much to bear. We long for freedom from pain and sadness, and we look forward to being reunited with loved ones and to worship Jesus forever. God’s promises of peace and forgiveness get us through life, and Heaven is the ultimate fulfillment of God’s promises for us through Jesus – he will make everything new. Scriptures: Matthew 19:27-30 Sermon Text: 1 Corinthians 15:57

I Won’t Condemn

As we examine ourselves under the Law, we feel shame. We know nothing we could ever do would allow us to earn our way into Heaven. But through Jesus, God promises to never condemn us or forsake us. Resting in this promise helps take away our guilt and fix our eyes on the miracle and gift of God’s grace. Scriptures: Psalm 32 Sermon Text: Romans 8:1

How Jesus Changed the World View of You

Jesus viewed women as image bearers of God and so he treated them as such. Jesus met the woman at the well and appeared to the women first after his resurrection. Women played a significant support role in Paul’s ministry; Priscilla helped, supported, encouraged, and taught the apostle Paul. Here’s the bottom line: although men and women serve different roles in God’s kingdom, we are all one in Christ. Because we are God’s children, we are changed for eternity. Scriptures: Luke…

What If…Jesus Is Alive?

Have you every been lost? There’s physically lost – like when you wander around a foreign place, and then there’s spiritually lost – like the disciples were feeling on the road to Emmaus. After Jesus was crucified, they lost all hope. They forgot everything Jesus told them about what would happen next. When we forget about the Resurrection, we’re right there with the Disciples – lost, hopeless, wandering. But Jesus is alive. And that changes everything. Scriptures: 1 Corinthians 15:12-22 Sermon…
