Waiting on God’s Promises

How are we to know that God’s promises will come true? This was a question Abraham asked of God, and it is a common question today. Abraham looked to the past faithfulness of God and the covenant that God made with him. We can look to these same things, and when we do, it will help us to wait patiently.

Struggling Against Temptation

Sometimes being a Christian can be a hard thing. The struggle against temptation is real, and it can feel like a heavy burden. How can we prevail in the face of temptation? We can follow the example of Jesus who was “tempted in every way as we are, yet without sin.”

The Reset Button

If you know anything about computers, you will know that they break. Often the fix is simply to push the reset button. Our lives are similar in that they quickly become corrupted by sin. Thankfully we have a God who is loving and merciful. When we come to him in repentance, he pushes the reset button and restores us.

I am a Missionary

In his last words to his disciples before ascending into Heaven, Jesus commissioned his disciples to spread the Gospel to the ends of the earth. This remains the mission of the Church today, and we are all called to participate in it. We do this in two primary ways. The first is raising our children and grandchildren in the faith, passing the Gospel from one generation to the next. The other way is through reaching out to people who don’t know Jesus and inviting them to come into his kingdom.

I am a Doer of the Word

Reading and studying the Bible is of the utmost importance as we follow Jesus as Christians. But it is not enough to just read the Bible, we also need to put the things we read into practice. Jesus meets us wherever we are, but he is not content to leave us there, he wants to transform us through his Holy Spirit who he has placed in our hearts. Jesus said, “If you love me, you will keep my commandments” (John 14:15, ESV).

I am a Disciple

To be a disciple is to be a follower of Jesus. Jesus called his disciples and they learned from him by listening to his words and watching his actions. Today we can still learn from Jesus through two foundational disciplines. Reading and studying the Scriptures (and doctrine) and praying.

I am Present and Active

It is very hard to be a Christian all by yourself. You need the Church and the Church needs you. Paul envisions the people of God as parts of a body. Each of us have a gifts and talents that are meant to be used together with the other parts of the body to accomplish the mission given to us by the head (Jesus). We also need each other to grow in the practice of our faith. This sermon will explore the importance of being present and active in the church.

No Longer Forsaken

Have you ever felt forsaken and desolate? Do you feel that way right now? These are the terms that Isaiah used to describe the nation of Israel, but he also said that they would be called a new name, “My delight is in her,” and their land would be termed “Married.” Marriage is one of the key images that God uses to describe his love for his people. In this sermon, find out what this means for you.

Poetic Truth

Poetry can be beautiful and it can express truth in ways that prose can’t, but it can also be cryptic! The prologue of the Gospel of John is much like poetry, it is beautiful, and it can be hard to understand at first, but it contains some important truth about who God is and who we are, along with a surprise that is almost too good to be true (but it is true!).
