What does it mean to be a “man’s man?” In this sermon, we discuss the reality of manhood. While we strive to be a a good man we often feel inadequate in our quest. We continually pour ourselves out only to feel as if it is never enough. The good news is that the kind of man we desire to be is possible through the person and work of another…the Holy Spirit of God.
We all have been children. This is a reality that has always been true but we have not always known what it meant. In fact, it is often not until we grow up that we fully grasp what it means. In Romans 8, Paul describes to us what happens when the Holy Spirit moves from being with us to living in us: we are adopted as God’s children. This sermon explores the changes that come as a result of our adoption.
An invitation reveals the depth of the relationship that is already present. In the concluding words of the Bible, we encounter words of invitation – both for God and from God. These words of invitation are to a wedding we do not want to miss! In this sermon, we discuss the hope of heaven by not only responding to God’s invitation but by giving an invitation for Him to come.
“The Good Life” is the desire of the human heart. We dream about it, we search for it, and we work to achieve it. While each of us will have our own version of the good life, the common threads that hold us together come from the life that only heaven can give. In this sermon, we discuss the implications of a life with God and the consequences a life without Him.
Are we there yet? This single question comes with dual meanings. Sometimes we ask with great excitement over the destination and other times we ask it with great dread over the long journey that is ahead. In this sermon, we deal with the struggle of living in the reality of today while longing for the victory of heaven. While we may not be there just yet, there is work to do in the meantime to help us get there.
Revelation 5:11-14 gives us a spotlight on the main event of heaven. In a word, heaven is all about worship. In this sermon, we answer three key questions, “Why worship?” “What is Worship?” and “How do we worship?” We are never more like heaven than when we worship.
Hope is fuel for the soul that propels us to pursuing a better tomorrow. While hope is something we all need and desire, it can often be hard to see. It is in these moments of despair that we begin to question, “God do you see me?” At the return of Christ, not only will God sees us but we will see God. In this sermon we explore the implications this has on our life today.
