Have you ever felt like there aren’t enough commandments? Do you ever feel like you’re walking around with a giant gold star on your back because God just can’t get enough of you?! Well then I have the sermon for you! In this Seeking Mercy Sunday we’re going to explore the love of God for people who don’t think they need it.
Jonah is a fascinating book not only because Jonah was given a second chance, but also because Nineveh – the last people who deserved the gospel – were given a second chance. What was it that frustrated Jonah at the end of the book? The answer might surprise you!
Ever feel trapped? When Christians fall into a sin, it can seem like there is no way out. God be praised that he sends people, like the prophet Nathan, to call sinners to repentance that they might be saved! King David’s life is a warning for us all.
Unfettered arrogance is a sight to see. It can be difficult to look away watching someone so overconfident that his fall isn’t a matter of if but of when.

There are all kinds of struggles that we face in the world. Some of them can come to us because of God’s word. This shouldn’t surprise us because Jesus warned us that this would come. We are not of the world, but we are in the world as light shining in the darkness. May we bring peace and hope to a dying world through God’s word.
