Witnessing for Christ isn’t always easy. Jesus warns his disciples that a servant isn’t above his master. We know how Jesus was treated; should we expect to be treated any different? This Sunday we’ll look at the persecution of the church and how God has preserved his faithful through the ages. Christ is our King.
Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna! With shouts of joy the city of Jerusalem embraced their king as he entered the city in peace. How quickly that changed… Join us as we enter Holy Week with the cerebration of Palm Sunday.
When you are attacked verbally or physically what is your first reaction? God has not set us up to be physical or emotional punching bags, but how can we “turn the other cheek” and keep the peace? We’ll look at a Christians response to persecution this Sunday.
In Christ alone our hope is found! Everything comes back to Jesus. There are plenty of other people, works, theologies, and gods that others try to tack onto what we believe. As we celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation may we always keep the focus on Jesus.
This Sunday is week two of our End Times Sermon Series – Sunday’s of Promise. It is Last Judgment Sunday so we will consider the Promise of Judgment. Is the Last Judgment something that a Christian can really look forward to? Absolutely!
This Sunday we begin a new sermon series – Weeks of Warning. The Christian’s life will be marked by difficulties. The warnings aren’t meant to scare the faithful away, but so that the believers will be prepared to meet these challenges. Our first sermon will be on Faith’s Fire – God’s word doesn’t always unite. Sometimes it divides.
