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.
By grace I’m saved, grace free and boundless! How great is our God! Yet the concept of grace alone, sounds too good to be true. Our sinful nature tries to sneak in a good work here, a helpful thought there. Where do good works come in? Why was one of the hallmarks of the Reformation – By Grace Alone? Watch and find out!
Which is your favorite commandment? I’m talking about the list of ten that God gave to his Old Testament people. Many court houses across America have a copy of these posted on the wall. This Sunday we’ll look at the Law of God. Is there really only one way to God? Watch and find out.
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.
A couple weeks ago I was reminded of just how many stars there are in the sky on a camping trip with the Youth Group. God’s promise to Abraham was that his descendants would be as many as the stars. The writer to the Hebrews tells us that faith is the “sure certainty” of what God says. Let’s consider God’s promises and how we can chase away our doubts by looking up to God.
The events of the week have given emphasis to our theme this Sunday. There are many questions as the why of hatred and murder. There are few satisfying answers. Our God redirects us to his love. It is that love alone that can transform a heart from death to life, from anger to peace, hatred to hope.
