Sermon Description

Who is fit to rule over us? During an election season, the question of suitable leadership is on everyone’s mind. Well in Micah’s day, the people of God knew firsthand the results of poor leadership from unfit rulers. So they turned to false sources of security and guidance. This prophecy promises to not only purge them of these worldly dependencies but to provide them with the ruler they needed.

Sermon Description

We see in Scripture the Lord’s tendency to use those who walk with a limp, both figuratively and literally, in order to accomplish his good purposes. That means, if we hope to be useful and effective in his service, we must first be wounded and humbled in his presence. This was a lesson that the people of Jerusalem in Micah’s day sorely needed to learn as their present circumstances looked bleak and their future even darker.

Sermon Description

This oracle is addressed to those who have violated justice through the abuse of their power. They consume the weak in their insatiable greed for gain. In every generation, under any authority structure, it is the people of God who are responsible to call out injustice and to live out God’s righteousness.

Sermon Description

The prophecy of Micah begins in a cosmic courtroom setting. The entire earth, and everyone in it, is on trial. God makes a powerful appearance as Judge and Witness, and surprisingly, the defendants include his own people. When the verdict comes down, a lament goes up.

Sermon Description

As this pandemic moment prolongs into a season of uncertain length, feelings of frustration and despair are understandable. But according to 1 Thessalonians 5:18, they’re not excusable. The Lord commands our gratitude in all circumstances, including the challenging set we find ourselves in. This little verse on ceaseless gratitude has the potential to crush your spirit – unless you read it in context of the entire letter.

Sermon Description

One of the marks of a healthy church is a vibrant prayer life among its members. In such churches, prayer flows freely between members and over members. Churches missing this foundational aspect of life together in Christ are prudent to consider what James says about the great power that accompanies the prayer of faith.

Sermon Description

In a culture of luxury and affluence, the poor and marginalized fall easily as victims to the rich and powerful. But while they appear to prosper on the earth, the fate of the unrighteous rich will always end in misery – in weeping and howling on the Day of the Lord. In our text, James reinforces these realities through a prophetic woe against the wicked, which serves as a warning for the righteous in Christ.

Sermon Description

Setting goals, creating timelines, making plans – these are responsible activities of everyday life. But if we are not careful, they are also occasions for sin. You may not be actively spurning the Lord or rebelling against his will, but a passive dismissal of the Lord’s will when making plans is equally sinful.

Sermon Description

Conflict is an inevitable aspect of life. Whether it's between lovers, friends, families, or nations. Sadly, churches can be hotspots for fighting and quarreling. Conflict between Christians can give us such a head(heart)ache. But God gives more grace – sufficient grace to humble ourselves and make peace.

Sermon Description

James would agree that we are saved by faith and not by works, but he would add that not all faith is the kind that saves. Concerned that some have narrowly redefined faith to merely saying the right words, James argues that the faith that saves is the kind that works – that produces good works.
