The Apostle Paul encourages us to put on the character qualities that show that we have been made new in Jesus Christ. Those qualities include a compassionate heart, kindness, humility, meekness, patience, bearing with each other, forgiveness, and finally the unifying characteristic that binds all of these together – love. Love is like a sash, tie, or belt that binds or holds all of these articles of clothing on is love. Love is the tie that binds. It is the reason behind all of these others. It is the thing that produces unity. It is how we are identified as believers or followers of Jesus Christ.View Sermon
When you hear the words “dirty laundry” what comes to mind? Piles of clothes in your basement? Family secrets, public scandals, hidden sins, Don Henley from the 80s, or maybe Carrie Underwood more recently?View Sermon
Cleaning House. The problem with being a pack rat or a hoarder is unless you start to get rid of some stuff, there will be no room for anything new. It’s like that in our Christian life as well. If we don’t clean house and get rid of the sin and junk in our lives, there will be no change in our behavior or room for living with the Holy Spirit in control. How can we glorify our holy, matchless, unparalleled God with a life full of garbage? Let’s clean house!View Sermon
What Matters Most – Colossians 2:16-23
Let’s not waste our time judging others or focusing on living up to some man-made standards. Let’s concentrate all of our efforts on what matters most: Jesus Christ. Let’s worship Him. Grow in Him. And Share Him.
Happiness appears to be an ever-elusive ideal. Just when we think we know what we want and finally get it, we want something else. We often say happiness is fleeting but joy is everlasting. The Bible doesn’t make that clear distinction. Joy is a godly response to our circumstances and happiness is the emotion we feel. Most of us try to find something that makes us feel happy or feel better, instead of thinking about how we should respond to what is happening around us the way God wants us to.View Sermon
This morning we lit the first candle of Advent, the candle of hope. It is also the candle of prophecy. God telling the world of things to come in advance. Some of the prophecies were dire warnings, but many, like the ones we will read today are promises of blessing and hope for the future. Where is your hope today? Are you discouraged at work? Are you tired of doing your work and others’ too? Do you have loved ones who are hurting and you can’t fix it? Do you have family and friends who walked away from their faith or never trusted Christ as Savior? Your loving heavenly Father is calling you to new life in His Son Jesus Christ: The Hope for this world. He is calling you to move from despair to real hope.View Sermon
