From Need to Free

(A Sermon Based on Judges 16:4-22)

This isn’t just a story about not crawling into bed with the wrong person. This also isn’t just a story about the power of addiction. This is a story about love. The great tragic truth about humanity that Samson shows us in this story is that our greatest gift, our love, can be weaponized against us. There is, however, a deeper story even than that. Listen in to discover how to live free of the power of needy love.

From Lust to Love

From Lust to Love

(A Sermon Based on Judges 14:1-19)

There is an age old story here. This is the story of what happens when a young man - or any person really! - hangs out in a place where he shouldn’t have been hanging out and looks at someone he shouldn’t have been looking at. This sermon seeks to examine through that story the power of lust, the destruction of lust, and the power of love, which conquers lust. Listen in!

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.

The Power of the Church

A Sermon Based on Hebrews 10:19-25

Jesus is coming back for the second and final time. The Scriptures all point to that as The Day. What are we called to do in the meantime? What’s really worth it? This is a sermon that examines that and in so doing lays down an important teaching on the power of the Church. We need to be a part of it. Here’s why.

Any Thing

Any Thing

(A Sermon Based 1 John 3:21-24)

I have found that the worst times of my life have always been the times when I’ve been in a place, but I haven’t really been there. Times when joy was surrounding me, but I felt heavy inside. Times when my coke was fizzing, but my heart was fizzling. Times when my eyes were seeing palmetto trees and waves, but my heart was only seeing emergencies and problems. And there I was by my lonesome. Just me. Wearing the weight of my world. Cut off from real life by the walls of my own dark spiritual castle. Impervious to the beauty around. Disconnected from the people next to me. There, but not really there for anyone. This is a sermon ending that life and breaking into the life that comes from the Spirit because of Jesus. Listen in.
