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.

As the global pandemic rages and the death toll rises, many are wondering why God delays to answer prayers and end this suffering. In John 11, we encounter Martha and Mary who are wondering the same as they suffer the loss of their brother. Jesus's reminder that he is the resurrection and the life are the words we need right now.

Sermon Description

The Psalms has been the songbook of the worshiping people of God. It’s been their response to the LORD, for who he is and what he has done, expressed in a range of emotions. That’s why there are hymns of praise as well as songs of lament, like Psalms 42 & 43. Taken together, they can give voice to your feelings of grief, doubt, or despair and can point you towards greater hope and healing.

Sermon Description

The visit of the Magi is a familiar Christmas story. Which is why it’s surprising to discover that, at heart, it has to do with God's passion and plan for his Son to receive exceedingly glad worship from all the peoples of the earth. It's a plan still unfolding today. A plan that every believer is called to join.

Sermon Description

Advent is derived from the Latin adventus which means ‘coming’. It’s about the two comings of the Christ. On one hand, we celebrate the fact that the Christ has already come to redeem his church. But now we wait and long for the Christ to come again to restore his world.

Sermon Description

Samson took his gifts for granted. He saw his superhuman strength as an inalienable right. His enemies, on the other hand, saw it as a riddle to solve or spell to break. What they all failed to see is that everything God gives is grace. Grace is what Samson’s life points to, especially the way it ends in a victorious defeat.

The miraculous events surrounding the birth of Samson offer signs of promise and hope for Israel. But, in the end, they demonstrate how even the most spiritually advantaged among us still cannot deliver himself, let alone his people.

Sermon Description

It’s worth noting that the only thing Jesus’ disciples are recorded to have asked him to teach them is how to pray. His reply to their request was the Lord’s Prayer. But before we study it line by line, we need to establish the right motives behind prayer.
