Sermon for October 24,2021

So justice is far from us, and righteousness does not reach us. We look for light, but all is darkness;
for brightness, but we walk in deep shadows.

Like the blind we grope along the wall, feeling our way like people without eyes. At midday we stumble as if it were twilight; among the strong, we are like the dead.

Sermon for October 17, 2021

Shout it aloud, do not hold back. Raise your voice like a trumpet. Declare to my people their rebellion and to the descendants of Jacob their sins.  For day after day they seek me out; they seem eager to know my ways, as if they were a nation that does what is right and has not forsaken the commands of its God. They ask me for just decisions and seem eager for God to come near them.

Sermon for October 3, 2021

Paul is writing this letter to Christians, no matter their background. The key to this passage is that Paul is telling the churches in Rome on how to achieve biblical unity. Paul places the first idea on finding out what we all have in common, whether they were a Jew, a Gentile, or a Pagan who now follows Christ.

Sermon for September 5, 2021

Jesus is the only answer to the fallen behaviors of humanity.  Jesus’ prayer for his disciples was for his Father to help them overcome themselves and their culture.  Love God, love people, love yourself.  Combat the human nature of hate and division!

Sermon for August 29, 2021

So, hate can be like cancer.  Undiagnosed or unrecognized, a malignant tumor can grow little fingers that spreads to other parts.  If you don’t catch it in time, it can lead to death.  Hate is like cancer metastasizing. Insomuch, hate leads to the scandal of libel, slander, and gossip.  Then that cancerous cell has a bunch of buddies, just like him, ready to spread and make all around them unhealthy.

Sermon for August 22, 2021

John 15:13 is often associated by being cherry picked and used as ultimately being Jesus’ death on the cross, and rightly so.  Jesus did show his love for all people by his atoning sacrifice.  That’s “Salvation 101” if you were to have had a class about it.  But Jesus’ conversation goes far deeper than just that!

Sermon for August 15, 2021

READING ROMANS 8 IS ABOUT LIVING IN THE SPIRIT OF GOD.  THE 10 COMMANDMENTS HAD THE RIGHT SPIRIT BUT THE PEOPLE WHO FOLLOWED THEM HAD THE WRONG ATTITUDE.  JESUS PAINTS THE PICTURE OF THE SPIRIT IN THE 10 COMMANDMENT AND TOOK 2 OF THEM AND MADE THEM INTO 1 COMMANDMENT.
