Willing The One Good Thing

(A Sermon Based on John 17:1-5)

Imagine that you worked really, really hard to make a gift that you hoped would delight somebody you loved very much. You did your absolute best, and you gave them a gift you were proud to give. Then imagine that the person you gave it to spent all of their time looking for the flaws in your work, pointing each one out and mocking you for being a failure.

90% of the things that make you angry in the world make you angry because you're like that uncaring friend. You disregard the good behind the things you have received and focus exclusively on the faults. Thank God that Jesus wasn't like us, and that his purity becomes ours.

Drink This!

(A Sermon Based on John 4:4-18)

This is a delicate topic and it is handled delicately. You can see it everywhere in John's account. You can also see it clearly in Jesus' approach. He is delicate with this delicate topic in your life. He is also brilliant. Jesus reveals to us here our inner thirst for acceptance and love and respect. And, better yet, he shows us how that thirst is quenched properly all the way into eternity and in a way that won't leave you poured out and dry. Listen in.

It Looks Like It

(A Sermon Based on John 3:14-21)

When you look around your life, it sure can look like it's lacking God's love. Especially when things aren't going right. In fact, it can really look like your worst fears are being confirmed  - like God's out to get you. That's the person John writes to and the person Jesus speaks to. Both Jesus and John are both intent that you look around your life and you see the love of God undeniably towering above everything else in your life. It's time to see that. So you believe...

Wild for Worship

(A Sermon Based on John 2:13-22)

This is a Jesus who blows up any caricatures we might have of him. He's a whip wielding, chaos creating Jesus. Nobody quite understood why he was that in that moment. We rarely do in our moments either. This is a sermon that explains why that is. Why we struggle to understand Jesus' passion for true worship; how much we need it; and how Jesus has provided it. Tune in below for a true and life-giving moment of worship.

The Torture That Heals

(A Sermon Based on Mark 8:31-37)

Counterintuitively there is a torture that heals. Counterintuitively there is a death that brings life. Counterintuitively there is a losing of yourself that can leading to a true finding of yourself. This is a sermon about that very real paradox - the paradox that Jesus, the master teacher, lays out for us in this monster of a Scripture. Listen in for a truly transformation word from Jesus.
