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…
debt

What If…We Were Debt Free

“It is finished.” These last words of Jesus are about more than the end of his life on earth. This sentence means that Jesus gave up his life for you. Although he was perfect, he suffered death for your sins. You could never sacrifice enough to pay for your sins, but Jesus paid the debt in your place. Scriptures: Ephesians 1:3-10 Sermon Text: John 19:16-30
need

What if…we had all we need?

We put in a ton of effort worrying about having the things we need. Whether these “needs” are actually survival requirements or things we just think we have to have, we forget the fact that the Giver of all things knows our needs. God has already taken care of the only thing we truly need: forgiveness. Scriptures: Matthew 6:25-34 and or Mark 2:1-12 Sermon Text: John 13

What If…We Didn’t Worry About Fair

Everyone wants justice and fairness. Christian life isn’t meant to be easy or fair. Look at Jesus: he was perfect, yet he was arrested, beaten, and crucified. By redirecting our focus from fairness to forgiveness, we can learn to thank God that he isn’t fair, because we definitely don’t deserve the grace he has unfairly given to us through Jesus. Matthew 26:47-56

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

Temptation

Satan wants us to believe the lie that God doesn’t know what He’s doing. We believe Satan and try to make ourselves into gods, because if we’re god, we can do whatever we want. We see other people get away with things we know are wrong, so we decide it’s okay to do those things too. When we make the decision to indulge in temptation, we hurt our relationship with others and with God. In love, God tells us “No” for our eternal good. 1 Corinthians 10:13

Ash Wednesday 2019

Guilt, Shame, and Repentance Guilt is a powerful emotion. It leads to shame, a feeling that we’ll never do anything right again and that we’re unworthy of any kind of love. But the good news is that feeling guilt and shame leads us to recognize our sin and repent. And the best news is that there is no sin or weakness greater than God’s love for us. This is the message from our Ash Wednesday service, held on March 6,…

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
