Sermons from September 2020

September 20, 2020 Sermon – Pursuing Change for Christ: Love

All this stuff, it sounds like it fits together pretty well.  But I wonder, does it sound like it’s consistent with the efforts being undertaken right now across our nation to pursue change?  If not, I would suggest there are far too many people pursuing change for something other than Christ, too many people pursuing change out of something other than love, too many people pursuing change that will result only in the continued in-breaking of the kingdom of people instead of the in-breaking of the kingdom of God.

September 13, 2020 Sermon – Pursuing Change for Christ: Engage Those Who Disagree

Well, I’m here today to remind you that THIS answer is not God’s answer.  According to God, only by relationally ENGAGING people who disagree – even people who disagree to the point of seemingly working to make the world a worse place – only by engaging them can we do more than just pursue change but actually achieve real and lasting change, also known as the in-breaking of God’s kingdom here on earth.

September 6, 2020 Sermon – Pursuing Change for Christ: Reconciliation

My friends, God sent Jesus to reconcile with people – with US – while we were STILL sinners.  God’s way of reconciliation is for the party who has been harmed, who has been sinned against, the “victim” we would say, to make the first move of restoring relationship…not because it’s easy but because it’s the ONLY way to not just pursue but actually ACHIEVE real, lasting change, the kind of change that could be characterized as the kingdom of God.
