Sermon Description

On the third Sunday of January, churches across our nation observe Sanctity of Human Life Sunday as a way to commemorate the lives lost to abortion since Roe v. Wade on January 23, 1973. This morning we will see how the Parable of the Good Samaritan affirms the dignity of every human person – no matter their size – and how it calls us to show neighborly love towards all, including the inhabitants of the womb.

Sermon Description

The Thessalonian church had a rough start. They faced persecution from day one, and their discipleship under Paul was abruptly cut short. And yet in spite of the challenges, the church continued to flourish in the gospel by the power of the Holy Spirit. This introductory message will explore the historical background of the church's origin and examine its foundations.

Sermon Description

The theme of salvation by way of substitution runs throughout the Bible. It began with sheep in the place of sinners, but by the time we reach Isaiah 53, the substitutionary sheep is replaced by a person – the Servant of the LORD. We are told that this enigmatic figure will manifest God’s own saving power, and yet he will be despised and rejected by those he came to save. He will be as innocent as a lamb, and yet he will be counted and punished as a transgressor. Who has believed this perplexing message? Only those who recognize and revere the unique juxtapositions found in the one Servant of the LORD.

Sermon Description

With the presidential election days away, many Christians feel frustrated that their choices come down to two imperfect candidates associated with either character traits or policies they find unworthy of the office. They wish, in an ideal world, for a candidate who possesses all the qualities they desire. And that is why Revelation 5 is a most timely passage for us – because here we are given a vision of a leader, who comes from the ideal world, who possesses everything we are looking for. Far from being a jumble of contradictions, Jesus is the embodiment of an array of diverse excellencies.

Sermon Description

Who is like the LORD? That’s the meaning of Micah’s name and the very question he poses to conclude his book. This morning we’re confronted by a God like none other – who punishes and pardons, who expresses displeasure and delight, who both judges and restores. This balance in God’s dealing with sinners like us means that we cannot expect to walk and serve in the light of his salvation until we sit and wait in the darkness of his discipline.

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.
