Sermon Until the fullness of time

Until the fullness of time

The Bible is a book full of inheritance. We can see this in the way we divide the books: An Old Testament and a New Testament. Through Adam we inherit a curse, but through Abraham we inherit a promise of a redeemer. So, where does the law fit into these inheritances? The law was given …

Sermon Comfort ye, my people

Comfort ye, my people

We often think of comfort as a mother’s hug, an encouraging note from a friend or snuggling with a blanket. They are all comforting acts, things that make us feel safe and loved. Now think of God comforting His children. He did so in Isaiah 40 and they are beautiful words (read vs. 1 &2 …

Sermon The King Humbly Comes

The King Humbly Comes

Jesus entered the city on a donkey. Let that sink in for a minute. Not a horse, or a chariot or a grand beast like an elephant. But a donkey. A lowly animal only good for hauling goods. What a beautiful reminder this is of WHY he came. He came humbly because it is what …

Sermon That We May Obtain This Faith

That We May Obtain This Faith

“Let me help you.” “No, I want to do it.” From an early age, each of us wants to be independent. We want to rely on our own strength, intellect and will. We want to do it ourselves. God gave us the Law, so that we might know what we must do. It is clear, …

Sermon The Authority of Forgive Sins

The Authority of Forgive Sins

Forgiveness is a very nuanced concept. The normal way we tend to use it in our day-to-day speech is to overlook some offense — this time. It is similar to a pardon in the sense that you’re still guilty, you are just not enduring the consequences of your offense. As we’ve learned previously, the Greek …
