  • Anger and the Gospel

    02/10/2021 Duración: 36min

    Anger. Anger occurs when we say “That’s not right and it matters!!” Anger is our natural response to displeasure. In others, anger often seems irrational, overblown, and terribly destructive, but in ourselves, anger feels justified, reasonable, and the only option if we want to have any hope of seeing justice done. In this message we will ask ourselves “What makes me angry?” and “How do I respond when I get angry?” We will consider why it is that our anger often goes wrong and what alternative there might be to responding to the brokenness of this world. In the end we will see that taking off our destructive anger is possible because our God has given us something far better to put on in its place.

  • Sexual Immorality and the Gospel

    25/09/2021 Duración: 38min

    What is sexual immorality? Who gets to answer this question and on what basis do they get to make that decision? In this sermon we will discuss what the Bible teaches us about the one who designed sex and the purpose that he designed it for. We will also discuss what makes sexual immorality so bad and why it often comes with so much shame. Lastly, we will consider the depths of God’s love and the price that he paid to free us from our sexual past and wash us white as snow.

  • You are Safe

    18/09/2021 Duración: 40min

    Over the past year people have become more and more aware of just how unstable the things of this world are. Of course this growing awareness has led to a growing sense of worry and anxiety. Things we once trusted to keep us safe no longer seem as reliable as they once did. In Colossians 3 Paul calls us to stop trusting in the fleeting things of this world and to set our minds on things above. One of the things Paul wants us to set our minds upon is the reality that we have died and our life is now hidden with Christ in God. The reason Paul wants us to think about that is because it means that we are safe. For all those whose life is hidden with Christ in God there is no longer anything in the universe that can ultimately harm us. In this sermon we will consider how our lives might be different if we would set our minds more fully on the things above.

  • Pride and the Presence of God

    11/09/2021 Duración: 43min

    In Colossians there were some teachers who thought that they had discovered the secret to experiencing the presence of God. Because of this they became puffed up and looked down on those who did not share their experience. In this sermon we will talk about the danger of allowing our knowledge of the Bible or our experience of God to lead us to feel superior to others. We will also look at the true path into the presence of God and talk about how it crushes our pride and keeps us humble.

  • Disarming the Accuser

    04/09/2021 Duración: 39min

    One of Satan’s weapons of choice is shame. The Bible calls him the accuser and he loves to hold our sins over our head and remind us that we are not enough. He whispers that if anyone knew the things we had done there is no way they could ever truly love us. But in Colossians 2:13-15 Paul tells us how our God has disarmed the accuser by cancelling the massive debt that we owed at the cross. In this message we will discover the connection between the forgiveness of our past sins and freedom from slavery to sin in the present.

  • Walking with Jesus

    28/08/2021 Duración: 39min

    The book of Colossians lays claim to a glorious picture of Jesus that is meant to spur people on to daily worship and adoration. However, sometimes we are quick to look to our own daily disciplines and human traditions to give us confidence before God. But Paul takes the Colossian church back to the moment they first believed in the person and work of Jesus and commands them to trust in that same person and work day in and day out. Listen and hear how the gospel is such great news that we never have to move beyond it.

  • The Struggle to Behold

    21/08/2021 Duración: 48min

    You and I will become like whatever we give our attention to. Knowing this Paul tells the Colossians that he toiled and struggled in order to proclaim Christ to them so that they might behold him and become more like him. This raises the question, “What are you giving your attention to?” Knowing what is at stake are you and I willing to toil and struggle for our own soul in order to make sure that we are giving our attention to beholding the one who is truly worthy.

  • Rejoicing in Suffering?

    14/08/2021 Duración: 42min

    I think most of us wish we were more bold in talking about our faith with others. However, many times we find ourselves holding back because we are not sure how talking about Jesus will be received by those around us. But what if suffering or even the fear of suffering didn’t hold us back from sharing the Gospel? How would that change our lives? In this passage Paul comes to shift our view of suffering from an obstacle to be avoided into a means of proclaiming the Gospel to be rejoiced in. It sounds crazy, right?

  • Wrong but Loved

    07/08/2021 Duración: 40min

    In this passage Paul reminds us that the most broken relationship we have ever experienced was with the most important person we have ever known and it was 100% our fault. Nevertheless, Paul tells us that we have a savior who has reconciled that broken relationship in his body through his death! Let that sink in, the most broken thing in all of the universe has already been fixed! You could summarize all of this by saying that you and I have been more wrong than we have ever realized and yet we remain more loved than we could ever imagine. In this sermon we will talk about what it means to be wrong and loved and why that truth can sometimes be difficult to swallow.

  • Preeminent in All Things Both Beautiful and Broken

    31/07/2021 Duración: 37min

    Just like the Colossians we live in a world that is constantly trying to dethrone Jesus in our lives by deceiving us into prioritizing other things. Into this world Paul broke out into a hymn proclaiming the preeminence of Jesus in all things. Jesus is preeminent in everything good and beautiful because he is the one who made it. But he is also preeminent in all of the broken because he alone is able to fix it through the blood of his cross. In this message we will consider what it would look like to give Jesus the preeminence in everything in our lives both the beautiful and the broken.

  • Paul’s Prayer: Be Fully Pleasing to God

    24/07/2021 Duración: 35min

    How often do you think about pleasing God? Many people rarely think about pleasing God at all, while those who do think about pleasing God usually find themselves feeling pretty discouraged at how far short they fall. In Colossians 1:9-14 Paul reminds us of the importance of pleasing God, while still finding a way to encourage those who are despairing over their sin. If you have ever wondered how to honestly seek to please a holy God without being crushed by your failure then this sermon is for you.

  • Loving When its Hard

    17/07/2021 Duración: 43min

    Sometimes people are hard to love, especially people that we have tried to love only to be let down by. In this sermon we will consider the way Paul continued to love people even after they had hurt him. We will also talk about the Colossians love for “all” of the saints and what makes that kind of love possible.

  • Doxology in a broken world

    15/07/2021 Duración: 40min

    In a world full of temptation where each of us have experienced our fair share of sin and failure the last few verses in Jude are meant to overwhelm God’s people with encouragement. There is one who is bigger than any temptation and he is able to keep his people from stumbling. Not only is he bigger than our temptations he is stronger than our sin and he promises to present his people blameless in the presence of his glory. These truths are meant to overwhelm us with joy and move us to give God the glory, majesty, dominion and authority that he deserves.

  • How to Contend for the Faith

    03/07/2021 Duración: 42min

    There is a final judgment coming for all humanity. When we become aware of people that are deceived by false teachers, what is our typical response towards them? Do we protect ourselves from them or do we show them mercy and remind them of the Gospel, praying God saves them from the judgment to come? Listen and hear how the Gospel reminds us of what we were once like and why ungodly sinners need the Gospel just as much as we once did.

  • The Imbalance of False Teachers

    26/06/2021 Duración: 38min

    In Jude 8-13, Jude exposes that the people who have crept in unnoticed among the church are false teachers. The way to know them is by watching their lives. They all have an imbalance that says one thing but does another. Listen and hear how the Gospel confronts and comforts our own imbalances in this life.

  • Contend for the Faith

    19/06/2021 Duración: 41min

    Often times the warnings in Scripture of God's righteous judgment against the ungodly can be terrifying. As Jude calls us to battle to contend for the faith we come to realize that the enemy is within the gates - not only in our midst in the church - but within our very own hearts. What, then, is our only comfort in life and in death? That we are not our own, but belong to our faithful Savior, Jesus Christ. Jesus is our only refuge, our only comfort. Jude fortifies the faith of true believers with this comfort as he calls us to contend for the faith once for all delivered to the saints. Having received mercy, peace, and love from God through Christ, we offer him to those still in need of a refuge.

  • The Dysfunctional Families that God Uses

    12/06/2021 Duración: 39min

    Have you ever come face to face with a brokenness that was your fault? Genesis 35 tells us how God responds to the mess that Jacob and his family found themselves in because of Jacob’s compromise. In this passage we learn that no matter how long you have run or how far you have fallen it is never too late to repent and come back home. Home to the God who loves us and gave the son of his right hand as a sacrifice for our sins.

  • How the Gospel Redeems the Abuse of Power

    05/06/2021 Duración: 40min

    In Genesis 34, we see two examples of the abuse of power. Sadly, it is the victim of the abuse that is left silent and in need. Listen and hear how Jesus comes to demonstrate an other-worldly power that draws near to the abused and offers hope for abusers.

  • Reconciliation and the Father

    29/05/2021 Duración: 45min

    In this moving account of reconciliation between two brothers we are given a front row seat as to what God is like and how he responds to all those who turn to him in repentance.

  • Repentance and Reconciliation

    22/05/2021 Duración: 42min

    Most of us have had times in our lives where we longed for reconciliation with someone we had wronged. We find a time to get together and we tell them we are sorry for what we did and then we wait. Will they welcome us back or will they keep their distance? In Genesis 32 Jacob seeks reconciliation with the brother that he had wronged and we wait to see how he will respond.
