King of Glory

December 11, 2016

Psalm 24:1-10

CS Lewis noted that there is something about us that desires a king. Take away the king and we will replace it with movie stars or sports heroes. You might say that as God’s creatures there is nobility in our blood, and like a eagle seeking flight, we seek a great ruler to lead us. The wonder of the Bible is its revelation of such a king. In this sermon for both young and old, we will wonder at the glory of our true king, Jesus.

Jesus Transfigured: A Person Appears

February 12, 2017

Matthew 17:1-9

In the Old Testament, the glory of God came both as a blinding light and a heavy weight of substance. God comes in glory and it is so intense, it must be hidden; by a cloud, a fire or a curtain. Isaiah, Moses, and all of Israel, tremble when God comes near. And, God says things like, “Take off your shoes” or “Do not touch the ark or you will die.” When Jesus transfigured (showed his glory) on a mountain with his friends, a NEW reality appears- glory comes to man through a man. It is a game changer. This week, we will look at the glory of God in the person of man. May we be amazed at this glory!

God's Kids and the Devil's Kids

August 23, 2015

John 8:42-59

My friend has a dog who will never leave the yard if left outside. The yard has no walls and the dog is not chained. Invisible to the eye, the dog is restrained by an electric fence. If my friend turned off the electric fence and shouted to his dog, "be free" she would not leave the yard.    According to Jesus, we were all born into slavery, fenced in by an invisible evil and unaware that there are opportunities for freedom. John's Gospel declares that we are in darkness and unable to see the light. However, Jesus says in this Gospel that if we make Jesus our master, we will be free. He says things like, believe and be saved, you must be born again, you will know the truth and the truth will set you free, the sheep hears the shepherd's voice..., and if you follow me you will never walk in darkness. In John 8:42-59, Jesus gets really personal and says that we are either children of the Devil or children of God. And, if we are children of God, we are free! Join us this Sunday as we look at the ways in which the lies of the Devil enslave us and how we can live lives "beyond the electric fence" by following our true Master, Jesus Christ.

Confounding Apperance

January 08, 2017

Matthew 2:1-12

In the opening chapters of Matthew’s Gospel, we experience the most intimate and physical contact with God through the witness of Jesus born in very gritty conditions to a very unlikely couple. And, it is in this setting that Shepherds desire to worship him as their king. Immediately following this scene, we encounter a world-renowned power broker who wants to murder this child, Jesus, and brilliant intellectuals of the day who desire to worship him; the contrast in Matthew can, at times, seem confounding. God gets born in the dirt. The maker of the world en-fleshed is chased down by Herod. Soon thereafter, Jesus as a little boy sits on the lap of his poor-girl-mother and we get to witness a group of Magi bowing down to worship him. It is as if Matthew is trying to tell us that things are not always what we seem, that God works in ways we are unaccustomed to, and that if we are to be in relationship with God Come Near, we will do well to suspend some of our contemporary assumptions about who is in, who is out, who is good, who is bad, what is up and what is down. Join us this Sunday as we consider a classic passage from the Bible and learn new ways to see how much God loves us and to what extent he will go to prove it. Doing so, however, will require us to have an open mind about some of the beliefs that we hold dear.
