Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. – Matthew 6:10
In Esther 9:1-19 we see the enemies of the Jews in Persia destroyed. In this sermon we discuss God giving over the enemies of His people to destruction and conclude that God is glorified in both justice and mercy in Jesus Christ.
Jesus is King the universe and He reigns on behalf of His church! Listen in as we dig into Ephesians 1:20-23 and see that the same power that raised Jesus from the dead, seated Him in the highest place, and put all things in subjection to His Kingship, is the same power that is at work in and for His church. Read Ephesians 1:15-23 and join us for some powerful encouragement.
Jonah reluctantly goes to the great city of Nineveh with a simple message and God radically transforms the city, from the least of them to the greatest! How might this transform our thinking about the mission that Jesus has given us? Listen in and be both challenged and powerfully encouraged to be on mission with the simple message of the gospel. (Read Jonah 3:1-9. Other texts include Jeremiah 18:7-10; Matthew 28:18-20; 1 Corinthians 15:1-4; & Revelation 5:9-10.)
In this sermon we see Jonah delivered from the belly of the fish and recommissioned by God to go and preach to Nineveh. He gets a second chance at the mission. God is a God of second, third, fourth … chances! Maybe you think you have blown it and are no longer useful to God. Listen in and be refreshed by God’s amazing grace in Christ!
This is the first sermon in our new series in the book of Jonah. We focused on Jonah 1:1-3 and discussed Jonah’s flight from the presence of God and what that means for us. Listen in as we introduce the new series and get started in the first three verses of this little book. (See also 2 Kings 14:23-25; Matthew 12:38-41; Isaiah 6:1-8.)
How does the gospel change both your work and your rest? This is the question we are seeking to answer on this past Labor Day. Our primary text was one you may not expect, Exodus 20:8-11. What should we learn and apply from the Old Testament Sabbath? Listen in as we try to show that we were created and redeemed to enjoy both our work and our rest. (Also see Colossians 3:23-24, Ecclesiastes 2:24, Colossians 2:16-17,Hebrews 4:9-10, Matthew 11:28.)
How should the church respond to the recent Supreme Court decision? What can it teach us and how can it actually help us be more faithful to Jesus? We look back at John 17:14-19 and see how Jesus would have us move forward from here.
