Sermon Palm Sunday

Palm Sunday

Shout hosanna! While there were a few who knew and understood Christ’s entry into Jerusalem, it was no grand entrance. Rather, he entered on a donkey in true humility and grace. If Christ had come in his full glory, we couldn’t have handled it! Rather he came in a state of humility with the full …

Sermon Repentance is Preparation

Repentance is Preparation

People always want to know “what will tomorrow bring” or “what should I do to prepare for emergencies?” These are, in some ways, the wrong questions for us as Christians to ask.

Seated with Him in the Heavenly Places

The apostle says that “God…raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places.” Not “will be seated” but just “seated.” We have been raised up, and we have been seated. But clearly we are on Earth! Can this be right? With daylight savings time starting this weekend, I do not …

Sermon The Foolishness of God

The Foolishness of God

Labeling someone as foolish is usually a pretty harsh condemnation of their behavior. And in some cases, it is behavior that should not be replicated. However, the Lord in His wisdom challenges the worldly belief system knowing that those who profess belief are mocked, ridiculed and called “foolish”. The Lord’s ways are not the ways …
