October 15, 2017 - Romans 3:22b-24 - "Something's Got to Give"
October 8, 2017 - Romans 3:22a - “The Big Ideal Above All Others”
It's the big idea above and beyond all others: how do I stand right before God? Is there something, even in the slightest, that I must do or decide or prove? This big idea has done more than just impact those who are Christians. It is at the heart of the struggle of every single person, including you. How so? See how in this sermon.
October 1, 2017 - Romans 3:19-21 - "More Than Face Value"
In order for you to take something at face value, you view the source as the authority... or at least authoritative enough. What is the authority for all thing spiritual, eternal, and divine? There was a time 500 years ago when it was the church and only the church. Today it seems that anyone and everyone is their own authority. Which is more true? Which is better? Neither. See how the Scriptures really, truly are God's Word and why that makes everything better, even here and now.
September 24, 2017 - Matthew 18:21-35 - “To Forgive Means to Let Go, Even When You Don’t Feel Like It”
To forgive means to let go. And that might be easy to understand. It's just very difficult to do, especially when the pain is severe and the memory of it is very vivid. So, what are you holding onto? What did they say or do that legitimizes your bitterness? But our shoulders were never intended to bear the weight of those who have wronged us. That is why God, who has forgiven the immeasurable weight of our sin, calls us to forgive. It's liberating. It's necessary. To forgive means to let go, even when we don't feel like it.
September 17, 2017 - Galatians 2:11-21 - “Conflict and the Centrality of the Gospel”
What do you do with conflict? It seems like everyone is somewhere on the spectrum between dealing with it and avoiding it. Whatever the natural tendency might be, we all have certain struggles with conflict, especially between Christians. We all have a lot to learn. That's why God's Word provides this great example and this wonderful focal point which helps guide our lives through conflict to the gospel of Jesus Christ. See what that means for you in this message.
September 10, 2017 - Matthew 16:21-28 - “The Danger of Comfort and the Necessity of the Cross”
There are some habits and perceptions that influence our worldview, even without our knowing it. We can think about things in a way that we otherwise wouldn't or shouldn't. Such influences can be so pervasive that they leave no part of our lives untouched or unaltered. Our view of Christianity is no exception. The question is, do we even recognize it? This week we see how dangerous and overlooked comfort and pleasure are. It's based on connectivity to a life that leads to momentary validation and temporary satisfaction. That is why the cross is so necessary: both Christ's and ours. See what that means for you.
September 3, 2017 - Matthew 16:13-20 "Who Jesus Is to You Determines Who You Are"
Generally, we care about what people think about us, especially those that are closest to us. God does too. He is the one who gave us care and conscientiousness. He made us in his image and calls us his dear children. He cares. Yet, the question is posed so that his disciples of all ages can be clear about our confession. In fact, it is precisely so that we would be on the same page of who Jesus is that he asks, “What about you? Who do you say that I am?” So, what do you say? What should we say? See what that means for you in Sunday’s sermon.
