Preacher

Preached on

October 6, 2019

Sermon Description

Last week, we saw how Colossians was written to Christians who were told they were spiritually inadequate and had a ways to go. Paul addresses those concerns with a hymn-like passage about the adequacy of Christ and all who hide themselves in him.

Gospel Growth: Evidences of Grace

Bible VersesColossians 1:1-14

Preacher

Preached on

September 29, 2019

Sermon Description

Paul wrote to address false teachers who made you feel incomplete in your faith until you adopted their system of spirituality, which had little to do with Christ. His burden, even at the start of his letter, was to encourage believers who are struggling with spiritual inadequacy. In our text, we see three ways to address feelings of spiritual inadequacy.

In the Tongues of Men: The Birth of Languages

Bible VersesGenesis 11:1-9

Preacher

Preached on

September 8, 2019

Sermon Description

A common language is a powerful unifying force, but because of sin, it united an unredeemed humanity in opposition to God. The multiplicity of human languages today is a result of human disobedience. God’s solution, however, is not to return to a common language but to unite all tribes and tongues by an even greater source of unity.

The Parables of Jesus:The Parable of the Pharisee and Tax Collector

Bible VersesLuke 18:9-14

Preacher

Preached on

September 1, 2019

Sermon Description

This parable presents two men who went up to the temple to worship. But only one went home in right standing with God. It shows that you can be a well-respected, well-liked religious person, but it's much more important to be a justified person.

The Parables of Jesus: The Parable of the Dishonest Manager

Bible VersesLuke 16:1-13

Preacher

Preached on

August 11, 2019

Sermon Description

In this parable, Jesus is not promoting dishonest business practices. He is commending future-oriented thinking and investing. His concern is not with the impulse to secure a good future. His concern is with an investment strategy that is too short-sighted and too worldly-minded.

The Parables of Jesus: The Parable of the Faithful Manager

Bible VersesLuke 12:35-48

Preacher

Preached on

July 28, 2019

Sermon Description

If you knew you had only one day left on Earth, how would you spend it? What would you not want to waste your time doing? They may be hypothetical, but if you believe Jesus's teaching about his second coming, then these questions should be taken much more seriously.

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.
