Coming Forth with Golden Wisdom

(A Sermon Based on Job 28:1-12, 28)

This chapter of Job seems out of place. We can call it an aside in the book of Job. Perhaps though we should give it a more elegant name. Perhaps we should call it an interlude. But is it really just an interlude? Does it really have nothing to say about suffering? And why is there such a profound and beautiful description of ancient mining? Why these verses - this incredible hymn to human progress? These and other far more profound questions find their answers in this sermon. Listen in!

Coming Forth with Golden Faith

(A Sermon Based on Job 16:7-21)

Why do we sometimes not pray? Why do we sometimes refuse to pray for ourselves? Why is it that sometimes when we do pray we pray prayers that are completely sanitized? Job raises his complaint to God powerfully and as he does we learn from him about how to lament and grieve over our pain with God. In so doing, Job shows us how to see our lives through the lens of Jesus. Listen in!

Coming Forth as Golden Friends

Coming Forth as Golden Friends

(A Sermon Based on Job 5:1-7)

Maybe you’ve noticed that humans have an almost supernatural ability to say the wrong thing at the wrong time. Maybe you’ve further noticed that that means we have an almost uncanny ability to increase the pain of others instead of lessening it. Why is that? What’s in us that causes that? And how do we combat that in our lives and become people who are truly balm during the suffering of others around us? This is a sermon that explores that and finds in Jesus forgiveness and empowerment to be a true friend to others in this life. Listen in!

Coming Forth as Gold with God

Coming Forth as Gold with God

(A Sermon Based on Job 2:1-10)

We often look at the story of Job and think about his losses and his tragedy and his pain. We think of how Satan took the spiritual knife of pain and stabbed it into Job’s heart. What we often miss, however, is the greater heavenly story that was playing out in the life of Job. Satan was trying to use Job to take a knife to the Lord’s heart. This sermon is designed to give the listener a chance to consider that reality and see how the Lord fights back in our lives and wins.

Just Be Held

(A Sermon Based on Luke 1:67-80)

There is an overwhelming bunch of good news in this song. God has come to visit us; redeem us; and be the power of salvation for us. On and on the song goes like that exalting the grace and mercy of God toward his people. There is here, however, more than anything else an image of a new dad here - a dad who sings a lullaby to his children to hold them with his words. It is God telling you to just be held as you go through scares in life. Listen in.

The Essence of the Christian’s Song

(A Sermon Based on Luke 1:46-56)

There are reasons why we don’t sing. There are also reasons why we do. This song is all about the latter. It’s all about making the Lord as big as he actually is through meditating on his Words and promises. This sermon functions as a duet with Mary. Its goal is to enable you join and make it into a joyful chorus. Listen in!
