Sight for the blind is more than a pair of glasses or contacts. I’ve recently spoken with people who have had cataracts removed from and new lenses implanted in their eyes. It’s amazing!
Faith comes by hearing God’s message.
Messages can be searched by topic, series, or book of the Bible.
Water for the Thirsty
Water for the thirsty sounds like a rescue mission in the middle of the wilderness. Drinking water is ubiquitous in the Western world. Spiritual water is not. Consider Jesus’ comments to the woman at the well.
A Gift for the World
A gift for the world sounds like a great 80’s tune. The point of Romans 4 is the Apostle Paul expanding on the concept he throws out just a couple verses earlier: For we maintain that a person is justified by faith apart the works of the law.
A Champion for the Defeated
A Champion for the Defeated could be none other than Jesus. In this blog post I want to focus on his opponent. Remember, someone has to lose, and in this case the loser is the devil.
Jesus Tells All
“Jesus Tells All” sounds like the title of a supermarket checkout line tabloid. While it’s true that all of Scriptures testify about our Lord Jesus, the account of the Transfiguration from the Matthew 17 is the perfect way to end the Epiphany season.
Live a Holy Life
How can I live a holy life? It’s not easy. Ok that’s not even accurate. It’s IMPOSSIBLE. Anyone who takes an honest look at God’s law and walks away with any other idea than it’s IMPOSSIBLE, is either lying or they were looking at the wrong thing.
The Savior’s Sermon
The Savior’s Sermon is Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount! The Sermon on the Mount starts with the beatitudes. Every beatitude all begin with blessed.
Jesus Appears as The Fisher of Men
In our text from the Gospel of Matthew this morning Jesus Appears as the Fisher of Men. Now if you check out our children’s message from this morning, you’ll see that not everyone knows about fishing – of any kind!
Jesus Appears as the Lamb of God
When Jesus appears as the Lamb of God, not everyone noticed. John the Baptist was privy to direct revelation from God to learn who Jesus was. How did you find God?
Jesus Appears at the River
When Jesus appears at the River Jordan, John did not want to baptize him. The word is deter. Let’s take a closer look at this.
A Savior for All Nations
A savior for all nations? Yes, it’s true! The wise men were excited! The Bible expresses this. When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. Look! The star! As stars shine brightest against a black sky, so we experience the greatest joy against the sorrow that may come in our lives.
A Lucky Savior
A lucky savior is what you need! It’s the new year. Maybe everyone wants a little good luck! Is luck a real thing?
A Savior for Christmas
A Savior for Christmas! That’s not what was under my tree, but I did receive a Savior for Christmas. I love hearing what other people got for Christmas. For example I know someone who got a gift of coal for Christmas.
Blessed Are The Peacemakers
Blessed are the peacemakers. That phrase has the most meaning after a time of war. Since Jesus was both God and man he could make peace between God and man.
Show Me Your Identification
Show me your identification, please. These words from law enforcement might send a chill down your spine. However, showing your ID doesn’t have to be a negative thing! In our text from Matthew 11 John the Baptist was asking Jesus for some ID.
Come See the Trees
Come see the trees! Can you smell Christmas? Part of what gives the season meaning and power are the memories and traditions that we have burned into our memories from childhood. Smells are a big part of that! Like the smell of a freshly cut evergreen.
Come See The Mountain
Come and see the mountain! Now you might be thinking – this is all happening too fast! This morning did you open up your bulletin and think, is it Advent already? It isn’t even December yet!
Watch and Wait
Watch and wait! That is the cry throughout the ages, throughout the pages of Scripture, and that cry still goes out from pulpits across Christendom. It is the final Sunday of the church year. We end with an eye to the sky as we await the return of our Lord in glory. But that topic – watch and wait – isn’t a great one.
Wipe Those Tears Away
This is the time to remember those who have gone before us. They are not gone. Those who dies in Christ are alive! Wipe those tears away.
