Imagination Unbound

(A Sermon Based on 1 Corinthians 15:35-49)

We often live with minds that do not grasp just how big and creative and powerful God is. This failure of imagination leaves our hopes for God and his work low. The solution? Look around; look up; and look at Christ. We need only look at what God has done to get a good grasp on what God will do for us. Listen in and have your imagination unbound to God’s future work for you!

Grace is More

Grace is More

(A Sermon Based on 1 Cor. 15:8-11)

Ten times Paul refers to himself in this tiny section of Scripture! Don’t think it’s because it’s narcissistic. He’s not. Paul wants us to do something more than hear what he’s saying. He wants us to see what he’s saying. And why does he want that? Because naturally, we fight what we most need: grace. Grace fights back and claims our hearts. Listen in!

Easter is for All

(A Sermon Based on 1 Cor. 15:1-8)

Who is Easter for? We could say that Easter is for Peter. We could say that Easter is for James. Most of all, however, we could say that Easter is for all. This sermon is designed to help each person listening to think through what Easter means for them individually wherever they are at in life.

True Love

(A Sermon Based on 1 Corinthians 13)

There are some relatively unhelpful places you can go to when it comes to this Scripture, the great love chapter of the Bible. This is a sermon that seeks to move the listener out of those relatively unhelpful places into the place the Spirit of God intended it to go. More than that, it’s a sermon that matures people in Christ to do what this Scripture calls for us to do: to love. Listen in.

Your One Great Thought and God

The First Sermon in a Series called Romans: The Gospel According to Paul Based on Romans 3:21-28

There is a thought you’ve lived with your whole life. A thought that as a child made you cry or ask for a hug from your mom when you knew you did wrong. A thought that just ravaged you as a teenager. It had you constantly checking the way you look in the mirror. A thought that had you evaluating yourself according to whatever you thought others were looking for in you: a cool factor, or a friend factor, an athletic factor, or perhaps a beauty factor. A thought that drives you as a young adult to curate your on-line presence, get after your Instagram, or share obsessively on Facebook. A thought that still drives you just in different ways as you mature into older adulthood. Perhaps it makes you fantasize about a fling with another woman. Or it relentlessly drives you toward greater success and productiveness, or neatness and order, or whatever it is that you care to do well. This is a sermon about how God deals with that one great thought that you've lived with for so long.

Jesus' First Pick

The Fourth Sermon in a Sermon Series called ACT II based on Acts 7:57-8:3; 9:1-6

The Spirit through Luke gives us the biography of a true terrorist who parachutes into the Acts story out of the clear blue sky. It's so striking. And why? So we know who Jesus thinks has the right resume to bring his gospel to the world. And that fact alone has a world to say to every Christian who has a high and holy calling. Today we think of how that relates to Christian moms.
