My Conscience Bears Me Witness: The Clashing of Consciences

Bible Verses1 Corinthians 10:23-11:1

Preacher

Preached on

June 30, 2019

Sermon Description

No two consciences are alike and no one’s conscience is perfectly aligned with God. Inevitably our consciences will clash. One person’s conscience is free to partake in an activity while another’s conscience is restricted. In a healthy church, we respect these differences as we strive for a common goal – the glory of God and the good of others.

My Conscience Bears Me Witness: The Danger of a Seared Conscience

Bible Verses1 Timothy 1:18-20

Preacher

Preached on

June 16, 2019

Sermon Description

The conscience is a tender thing. You have to guard it, care for it, and listen to it. With proper handling, your conscience will grow strong and healthy. But if you sear your conscience - by continued neglect and abuse - then it will harden and desensitize. It will no longer function properly and warn you of the dangers of sin and judgement.

My Conscience Bears Me Witness: The Testimony of the Conscience

Bible VersesRomans 2:12-16

Preacher

Preached on

June 9, 2019

Sermon Description

What is the human conscience? Is it the shoulder angel whispering into your ear? A voice running a commentary in your head? A moral compass teaching us right from wrong? Those are all helpful metaphors. Here’s the way the Bible describes it: The conscience is God’s one remaining witness in the soul of fallen humanity.

You Shall Know I AM: The Golden Calf

Bible VersesExodus 32:1-35

Preacher

Preached on

May 12, 2019

Sermon Description

The events of chapter 32 are surprising. The people of God had recently witnessed his hand and heard his voice. Moses had gone to receive instructions for a tabernacle in which God would dwell among them. Things look promising, and yet suddenly they're bowing to a golden calf. First Corinthians 10 says this episode took place to serve as an example of what not to desire and what not to do. So what sessions can we learn?

You Shall Know I AM: Keeping the Sabbath

Bible VersesExodus 31:12-18

Preacher

Preached on

May 5, 2019

Sermon Description

Our society is confused about the Sabbath. It is still observed to some degree. Consider how post offices and banks typically close on Sundays, and alcohol sales are limited or altogether prohibited. Our society has yet to shed all vestiges of its Christian heritage. But it is safe to say that the whole point behind Sabbath keeping has largely been lost, even for many Christians. We equate it to “going to church”. But is that it? Is there more to keeping the Sabbath?

The Last Hours: Jesus and the Empty Tomb

Bible VersesMatthew 27:57-28:20

Preacher

Preached on

April 21, 2019

Sermon Description

There are solid reasons to believe Jesus’s tomb was empty, and there are credible reasons to believe his follower’s claim of a Resurrection. But there have always been reasons to deny it all. It appears the question we need to ask is whether or not we desire the Resurrection.

The Last Hours: Jesus or Barabbas

Bible VersesMatthew 27:11-26

Preacher

Preached on

April 14, 2019

Sermon Description

On Palm Sunday it's only fitting to consider why Jesus came - not just to Jerusalem that day - but to our world in the first place. Simply put, he came as a Substitute - to take the place of sinners under God's judgment. The events surrounding his trial illustrate this purpose, which can be appreciated from three different perspectives in the narrative.

The Word-Centered Home

Bible VersesDeuteronomy 6:1-9

Preacher

Preached on

March 31, 2019

Sermon Description

In every family, words are spoken. What words matters a lot, but the bigger question is whose words. In today's text, Moses tells God’s people to let the Word of the Lord take center stage in their homes. He describes for us a Word-centered home.

You Shall Know I AM: A Covenant with the LORD

Bible VersesExodus 23:20-24:18

Preacher

Preached on

March 10, 2019

Sermon Description

In our text, we see the LORD ratifying a covenant with Israel. He promises blessings, warns of curses, calls for obedience, and applies blood to seal the deal. But if this old covenant is no longer in effect, then what relevance is there for the new covenant people of God?

You Shall Know I AM: The Uses of the Law

Bible VersesExodus 20:18-23:19

Preacher

Preached on

March 3, 2019

Sermon Description

After giving Israel the Ten Commandments, God called Moses up the mountain and entrusted him with the Book of the Covenant (24:7). It is comprised of laws with very specific guidance for the judges of Israel, which make us wonder what relevance or use the law has for us today.
