Start a New Way of Living! God Loves You!

Sermons from 2016 (Page 5)

Look away from the terrible things that sin does. Look to your savior, Jesus!

Look Away

We don’t walk through life on egg shells, fearful that we’ll offend our Holy God. In peace with Jesus we walk with eyes wide open, not only on guard against temptation, but also looking for ways to give our gracious God thanks and praise. What will future generations think of us when they look at our lives in the pages of history? Look away from temptation. Never look away from your gracious God!

Follow God's path for your life. Rejoice in the Lord always! I will say it again, rejoice!

Follow This Map

The season of Lent continues under theme – Walk This Way: Follow This Map.  There is a right way and a wrong way to go through life.  Paul speaks to this in his letter to the Philippian Christians.  God leads us on the path to life.  Jesus secures our journey by his suffering and death on the cross.

The Book of Romans, God loves us. Love Like This!

Love Like This

The Gospel appointed for the first Sunday in Lent is always about temptation. Specifically the temptation of our Lord Jesus. This Sunday is also Valentine’s Day. We will look at the Epistle lesson, Paul’s letter to the Romans where he explains matters of the hear from a different angle than you might find at a Hallmark store. This Lent, walk this way: love like this. Love like God.

700 years before Jesus walked the earth Isaiah saw Jesus' ministry and work of saving the world. The darkness of sins doesn't stand a chance in the light of the Christ child. God did what no one could.

No One

There was no one. No one to save the world. No one to act. No one to defend the helpless. God did what no one could. He sent Jesus to save the world. The way Isaiah describes it is vivid and powerful. God did what no one could for you. Watch and learn how.

The Book of Luke. There was an excitement among the crowds that watched Jesus carry out his ministry. Jesus went to church; join us this Sunday at Star of Bethlehem. The glory of the Lord is revealed in Jesus.

Come to Church with Jesus

Have you been to church lately? Do you know what to expect? The people that saw Jesus speak on that Sabbath a couple thousand years ago were no strangers to church. In fact they were no strangers to Jesus either. They watched Jesus grow up in the little village of Nazareth. Jesus unrolled the scroll of Isaiah to chapter 61. The words that he read were earth shaking. Watch and find out why.

These words are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God. The gift of God to the world is Jesus. Many miracles are recorded in the gospel of John.

Little Miracles

How important was it that Jesus changed water into wine? If we compare this miracle at the wedding to some of the others in Jesus’ ministry, it does seem a little small. Yet little miracles are important! They show that Jesus’ cares and they show that Jesus saves.

The Book of Luke. There was an excitement among the crowds that watched Jesus carry out his ministry. Jesus went to church; join us this Sunday at Star of Bethlehem. The glory of the Lord is revealed in Jesus.

Excitement in the Air

You can feel the excitement in the air. There is a buzz in the crowd. Something big is going to happen. It’s not an NFL playoff game or the calm before the big sale at your favorite retailer begins. Jesus is about to be revealed as the promised anointed one of God, the Messiah. Why is this exciting for you? Watch and find out!
