More than Seeing

March 28, 2016

Sermon on Luke 24:1-12, for Easter, the Resurrection of our Lord. A sermon about what we "see", perceive, or understand about the facts of Jesus' death and resurrection. What does it mean for our life? How does it change us and our future?



March 21, 2016

Sermon on Luke 23, for Palm Sunday or Sunday of the Passion, about how Jesus treated those who mistreated Him, with references to Psalm 103:8-12. How did Jesus' conduct affect the onlookers of His crucifixion? What response should it create in us?


Surpassing Worth

March 14, 2016

Sermon on Philippians 3:2-14, for the 5th Sunday in Lent, about Paul counting everything in his life as loss, in comparison to the surpassing worth of knowing Christ. How do we obsess about counting earthly things? What does knowing Christ equal? How can Paul declare everything in his life to be rubbish? How do we run the race in light of all the struggles and challenges of life?


The Love that Overcomes

March 7, 2016

Sermon on Luke 15:1-3, 11-32, for the 4th Sunday in Lent, about the Parable taught by Jesus, variously known as The Lost Son, The Prodigal Son, The Two Brothers, or as I would title it, the Father's Love. What two audiences does the parable speak to, and how does it surprise or convict us about God the Father's love, and move us to receive and show the same? How do the lost find a place in the family? What is the danger of thinking like the older brother? Who is our true brother, who shows divine, fatherly love to us?
