Mission: (Matthew 28:19-20)

    Today’s message is of vital importance. In fact, I would say that it’s likely one of the most important sermons you’ll ever hear. I don’t say that because I think that I have anything important to say, but because this passage, aside from the message of salvation found in the gospels, is vit…

Spirit (John 16:7-15)

    Just Sunday I found myself putting God in a box. Have you ever done that? Maybe you have and you didn’t realize that’s what you were doing. Here’s what it looked like for me:
    Jonny was telling my Dad that he had had a really vivid dream about end times, a dream unlike any other…

Study (Ruth 1)

    When I was taking my ministry preparation classes, one of the first classes I took was titled “Preaching and Teaching”, and the goal of this class was to give ministers and future ordained ministers tools and methods for preaching and teaching a Biblically founded sermon or lesson. Part of t…

Bethel (Genesis 28:10-16)

    Jacob came from an established line of people who walked with God. Jacob’s father, Isaac followed God and leaned on God’s guidance for his life. Jacob’s grandfather, Abraham, had a very intimate relationship with God, and heard His voice regularly. Abraham was a great man of faith, who regul…

Listen (1 Samuel 3:1, 7-10)

    In his book, Whisper, Mark Batterson gives the story of a very renowned opera singer. This opera singer, a man, had an incredible vocal range spanning several octaves. One morning after a particularly exhaustive show, the man woke up to find that he could no longer hit some of the higher …

    Happy Resurrection Sunday! It’s so good to see all of you today, I’m glad you’re here.
    Who needs some good news today? Good, because that’s what today is all about. It’s about good news. It’s about the best news, really.

Seizing Jesus (Mark 14:49a)

    Very rarely, actually, I don’t think I’ve ever, preached a sermon on one verse. I’m very cautious to take into consideration the whole context of a passage so I’m not misinterpreting Scripture, but this one verse, actually it’s half a verse, the Lord keeps bringing to the forefront of my min…

Wake Up! (Matthew 26:36-46)

    Easter is three weeks away, the day when Christian churches across the world celebrate the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Christ Jesus. As we move closer to Easter, we start to think more about the week leading up to Jesus’s suffering, and the brutal crucifixion He submitted to, the sa…

Spiritual Umpire (Colossians 3:1-2)

    There was a woman, let’s call her Jane, who had been attending a small rural church for about 3 years. One day she came to the pastor and said, “Pastor, I’m concerned about this TV show.”
    The pastor said, “Oh? What TV show is that?”

    Jane went on to tell the pastor th…

Make it Holy (2 Kings 12)

    I like Disney movies. If you’ve gotten to know me much, you know this fact about me. One of my all-time favorites is Sleeping Beauty. I love the classic hand drawn animation of Sleeping Beauty, and Maleficent is my favorite Disney villain. I just really like Sleeping Beauty. If it’s been a w…

Mighty to Save (2 Kings 7)

    One of the songs we worshiped with this morning, Mighty to Save, has a very profound message. When we sing that song, we sing about how every single person, every person, is in need of compassion, kindness, never failing love, forgiveness, mercy, in short…every person is in need of a savior.…

Three Stories of Trust (2 Kings 4)

    Despite their name, 1 and 2 Kings, these books are not entirely about the kings whose names are written down in the books. These books record the kings names, and some of what they did while they were the king, and also if they did evil in the sight of the Lord or walked in David’s ways. But…

Radical Prayers

    Who has come to the realization that prayer is our life-line? That prayer is our link to a real, tangible relationship with God? That prayer is the necessary and vital key to experiencing the kingdom of God come on earth? I started a journey with the Lord two years ago about prayer, and He b…

See the Unseen (2 Corinthians 4:15-18)

    In 2 Corinthians 4:7, Paul calls us jars of clay, and tells us that we hold a treasure within us, a treasure in a jar of clay. It’s a beautiful image for our brokenness and human weakness and frailty, because a jar of clay is not the most durable of jars. Clay is easily broken, and easily cr…

How Long? (1 Kings 18)

    Today, we’ll take a significant leap in the timeline of 1 Kings, and we’re actually going to end 1 Kings this morning, but, we should think of this as just a pause between two parts. 1 and 2 Kings were written as one book, and later broken up for the sake of making copying easier, so really …

Seeking God's Will (1 Kings 12)

    “The other events of Solomon’s rule are written down. Everything he did and the wisdom he showed are written down. They are written in the official records of Solomon. Solomon ruled in Jerusalem over the whole nation of Israel for 40 years. Then he joined the members of his family who had…

Deception of the Heart (1 Kings 11)

    When we look back and remember Solomon, we remember two main things about him: first, that he was the wealthiest and likely wisest man in history; and two, that he went very wrong. So what happened? How did Solomon go bad, what went wrong? Well, that’s what we’ll be looking at through 1 King…

A Fulfilled Life (1 Kings 10)

    Who here would like to have the guarantee that you will live a fulfilled life? You can raise your hand if you want to. I don’t mean that you won’t have any difficulties or struggles, or confusion or disappointment, just that you get to the end of each day, each week, month, year, and you are…
