Sermon Description

Our treatment of people reveals how much we value them. We shout at the representative of our internet service provider when the internet goes down for longer than we expect. We treat co-workers as tools to get the job done rather than value them as people. We disregard the opinions of young people because we believe they lack life experience. Yet God is gracious to people regardless of background. Why does God value people?

Sermon Description

We occasionally experience seasons of disappointments in our lives. We go out on dates regularly, but we have a hard time finding someone who is girlfriend or boyfriend material. We keep trying to conceive, but every pregnancy test results in disappointment. We keep inviting a non-believing friend to church, but they keep finding reasons not to attend. We keep experiencing a reoccurring health issue and no treatment seems effective. What do we do when we experience seasons of disappointments?

Sermon Description

Sometimes, we wonder if we have true faith that saves our souls. We wonder: do we truly have a relationship with God? Yes. We believe that Jesus died on the cross for our sins and rose from the dead. We believe that he ascended into heaven. Yet when we look at our lives, we find little change. We find little love for God. We find bible reading stale. Our prayers seem rote. Our love for others has grown cold. How do we know that we have true faith? How do we know if we have invited Jesus into our lives as an esteemed guest?

Sermon Description

When we find ourselves spending time with people, we naturally fellowship with people like us. When we do, we become members of a clique. We become insiders in our social groups. We enjoy people within our social groups because they reciprocate conversation. They reciprocate hospitality. One week, we invite them to lunch. Next week, they invite us to lunch. Such relational dynamics are so natural to us that we never stop to consider: Who does God want us to invite into fellowship with us? Does God solely want us to extend an invitation to those like us? What does God have to say about this topic?

Sermon Description

Tragedy hits people at unexpected times. They may discover at a routine medical examination that they have a chronic illness like ALS. A student learns that their classmate died in a car accident over the weekend. A person may receive notice that they’ve been let go of their job. A wife shares with her husband that they lost a child due to a miscarriage. When people around us experience tragedy, how do we care for them?

Sermon Description

We don’t need to think very long before we can recall instances of injustices of this past year. We recall news of senseless killings in the news. Videos of racism play through our memory. We hear reports of families going hungry in our community. Injustice occurs all around us. It may make us wonder: “Where is God?” Where is his judgment? The absence of God’s intervention might lead to spiritual apathy. How do we avoid spiritual apathy when injustices occur?

Sermon Description

Our struggle with sin resembles a garden filled with weeds. If we examined the garden of our lives, then we would find various weeds of sin flourishing. It might be weeds of envy, weeds of anger, weeds of impatience, or weeds of lust. How do we remove these weeds of sin? Dealing with sin in our lives requires us to embrace the identity we have in Christ: dead to sin and alive to God.
