Fading Glory, Lasting Glory

Sermon on 2 Corinthians 3:12-13; 4:1-6 for the Transfiguration of our Lord. A sermon about how Paul compares the glory of the Old Covenant with the New, and shows how Jesus' glory is a greater and permanent glory--but also how He chooses to reveal it in humility. How do Christians today experience and encounter the glory of Christ?

Free from all, servant of all

Sermon on 1 Corinthians 9:16-27 for the 5th Sunday after Epiphany, about the joy and reward that motivated Paul to preach the gospel free of charge to the Corinthians. How is the Christian life a paradox of freedom and service? How has the Christian church misunderstood Paul's "becoming all things to all people", and how should we understand this for how we serve and reach the lost? How did Jesus do all of this for us?

The Prophet and Mediator

Sermon on Deuteronomy 18:15-20, for the 4th Sunday after Epiphany, about how Jesus is the Greater Prophet and Mediator that Moses foretold. What does this passage tell us about the responsibilities and dangers of being a prophet? The responsibilities of the people? What happened at Mt. Horeb (Sinai), that caused the people to ask for Moses to be a mediator? Why mediation with God necessary, and how do we find it?

God Relented

Sermon on Jonah 3:1-5, 10, for the 3rd Sunday after Epiphany, about the prophet Jonah being sent to Nineveh, and their repentance at God's Word. How does Jonah foreshadow Jesus? How does the book of Jonah address our attitudes and God's attitudes toward the lost? How does it demonstrate God's mission for the lost, and His mercy?
