A Great High Priest

A Great High Priest

2019-08-0417:40

(Text: Hebrews 4:14-5:10) Perhaps the primary metaphor which the book of Hebrews uses to describe Jesus is that of our "Great High Priest," forever interceding for us. To make his point, the author states that Jesus is a priest forever "according to the order of Melchizedek." Who is this Melchizedek, anyway, and what does he have to do with us?
Freedom From Fear

Freedom From Fear

2019-08-0417:04

(Text: Hebrews 2:10-18) In the second chapter of Hebrews, the author asserts that Jesus has destroyed the power of death, and therefore has set us free from the fear which enslaves us. How does fear still affect our actions? What might we do if we had no fear?
God Has Spoken to Us

God Has Spoken to Us

2019-07-2814:22

(Text: Hebrews 1:1-4) In the midst of the suffering and injustice of life in this world, we often find ourselves hopelessly overwhelmed. In her sermon, guest preacher Ann Adams reminds of the comforting promise of this passage, that God is even now speaking to us and sustaining us through Jesus Christ.
Hallelujah!

Hallelujah!

2019-06-2315:22

(Text: Luke 15:8-10; Psalm 113) In the Psalms, we find poems, songs, and prayers that accompany us through the life of faith, in both good times and bad. Psalm 113 opens and closes with the command, "Hallelujah!" (Praise the Lord!) What is praise? Why do it?
The Spirit's Choosing

The Spirit's Choosing

2019-06-1625:53

(Text: Acts 2:1-4; Romans 8:14-39) What does the Holy Spirit do, anyway? On this day of Pentecost, we hear about the coming of the Spirit in the early church, and we also hear Paul's teaching about the work of the Spirit in Romans chapter eight.
Dead to Sin

Dead to Sin

2019-06-0216:49

(Text: Romans 6:1-14) "How can we who have died to sin go on living in it?" This question has haunted the church throughout its history. Paul tells us that through baptism we have died to sin so that we might live a new life, so how do we explain our bad behavior?
To All Nations

To All Nations

2019-05-0526:47

(Text: Acts 10:1-20, 34-48) With a pair of visions given to two very different men, God orchestrates the spread of faith in Jesus from the Jewish cities of Judea to the Roman city of Caesarea. Peter and his companions are shocked, for God works outside the Law.
Too Great a Commission

Too Great a Commission

2019-04-2814:25

(Text: Matthew 28:16-20) When Jesus gives the mission to disciple, baptize, and teach all the nations, he gives it to a group of disciples who are struggling with doubt. Surely this call  is more than they can handle! How can wavering worshipers like us measure up to this "Great Commission?"
(Text: Matthew 28:1-10) At the first Easter Sunday, nothing could keep Jesus in his tomb.  Just as Jesus's tomb couldn't hold him, neither can the tomb-like walls we build for ourselves keep God's forgiveness away from our sin.
Jesus is Lord

Jesus is Lord

2019-04-1418:16

(Text: Matthew 21:1-17) On the Sunday before Passover, a large crowd gives Jesus a royal welcome as he enters Jerusalem.  Clearly the people see Jesus as a potential lord and king, but what kind of Lord is he?
Judgement

Judgement

2019-04-0722:54

(Text: Matthew 25:31-46) Just two days before he will be stripped, beaten, imprisoned, and handed over to be crucified, Jesus tells of the final judgment of the nations.  At that judgment, Jesus reveals a startling truth; whatever you do to the least of these, you do to Jesus.  And it is Jesus's verdict that determines your future.
Ready or Not

Ready or Not

2019-03-3117:30

(Text: Matthew 25:1-13) Speaking with his disciples about the coming of his kingdom, Jesus tells several parables about the need to be ready.  Today we hear the story of ten bridesmaids waiting for the groom to arrive.
Dressed and Ready

Dressed and Ready

2019-03-2419:06

(Text: Matthew 22:1-14) When he is challenged by the chief priests and the leaders of the people, Jesus responds with parables where those who think they are on the inside find themselves cast out.  How can we hear these troubling parables today?
What We Deserve

What We Deserve

2019-03-1717:57

(Text: Matthew 20:1-16) In his last teaching stop before coming to Jerusalem, Jesus is asked by his disciples about the sort of reward they can expect, since they have left everything to follow him.  In response, Jesus tells a parable of day-laborers with an offensively generous employer.
The Law of Forgiveness

The Law of Forgiveness

2019-03-1018:00

(Text: Matthew 18:15-35) Nothing is closer to the heart of the Gospel than the forgiveness of sins.  But here in this text, Jesus speaks about forgiveness not in terms of the Gospel, but rather by the rules of the Law.
A Sermon of Comfort?

A Sermon of Comfort?

2019-03-0314:05

(Text: John 14:15-27) In this Lenten reflection from 2018, Pastor John explores just how it is that Jesus's Last Supper Sermon can be called by Martin Luther "the best and most comforting sermon preached by Christ while on this Earth."
(Matthew 14:13-33) Immediately after participating in the miracle of Jesus feeding 5,000+ people, the disciples find themselves alone in a boat in the middle of a storm.  Why is it that trials so often follow times of abundance?  Where is God when they come?
Highways and Storms

Highways and Storms

2019-02-1715:31

(Matthew 7:1-14, 24-29)  Here at the end of the sermon on the mount, Jesus holds up two alternatives: the difficult way that leads to life, and the comfortable road which leads to destruction.  How do you know which path you are on?
An Evangelizing God

An Evangelizing God

2019-02-1014:33

(Luke 2:1-20) In this 2018 Christmas Eve sermon, Pastor John explores the ways God keeps confirming his promises to us, especially when they are hard to trust.
Treasure in Heaven

Treasure in Heaven

2019-02-0316:16

(Text: Matthew 6:7-21) In this reading, Jesus gives his famous instruction about treasures: "Do not store up treasures on Earth, but in Heaven."  But how exactly do we do that?  How do we get treasures into heaven?  And more importantly, how do we withdraw them?
