March 14, 2021 Sermon – “Return from the Wilderness: Greed”

So, please, be careful.  Remember that, while God loves you, God ALSO loves everyone else.  While God loves you, God doesn’t want you, and you alone, to have it all.  When you GET that, when you get past the selfish desires of greed, you will live into a way that benefits YOU even MORE than your greed, and you will live in a way that benefits everyone around you.  In other words, you will replace the ways of death with the ways of life…for you and for everyone else.

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.

March 29, 2020 Sermon – Journey to the Cross: Sacrifice

My friends, Jesus told us to “do this in remembrance of” him.  Jesus told us to live differently from everyone else, to live differently than we already live, to live differently than we are inclined to live…all in remembrance of him.  Each time you make a decision to live differently in this way, do so with Jesus at the forefront of your mind. Do so knowing that God is making a difference through you. Do so in remembrance of Jesus.

Back to Basics: Jesus

He was born.  He lived a while.  He made some friends and enemies.  He died. I suppose you COULD summarize Jesus’ life that way…but if you did you’d be missing just about EVERYTHING important about Him.  As Christians, we must do more to understand who we believe Jesus is…and we must do more to live in accordance with who we SAY Jesus is.  Because, even the slightest nuance in how you live impacts what you say you believe deep in your heart…and even the slightest nuance in what you believe SHOULD impact how you live.
