Mind the Gap

The relationship between King Saul and David reads like a modern day “Law and Order” television episode.  David’s display of integrity is breathtaking. Jesus goes on to authentic David’s integrity by giving the Matthew 5 command:  Love your enemies. But how? Stay tuned. This sermon was preached on Sunday, July 21, 2019.

Being a “Boaz” Father

Provision!  It is certainly on the heart of every man on this Fathers Day.  The pressure of providing for families can be overwhelming. But just what is the most important thing that all fathers and father figures could provide?  Money? Food on the table? First things first, let’s glean from the story of Boaz and…

Empowered to Empower

Empowered to Empower.  Today we celebrate the power of Pentecost, that 50th day after Easter where the disciples receive the “empowerment” of the Holy Spirit.  Yet, if we read carefully back in the Old Testament book of Judges, we realize that Samson had also been empowered by the Holy Spirit. What’s the difference and what…

Motherhood: Fighting Decision Fatigue

All Christian women are mothers whether you have biological children or not, for the simple reason that all the children of our church need biological and spiritual mothers!  The enterprise of motherhood is an exhausting one, full of something called “Decision Fatigue.”  Motherhood can wear you out!

No Pole Vaulting

If you have ever run track and field, you know that Pole Vaulting is one of the most visually dramatic events of them all.  People pole vaulting over the great sand pit. In our spiritual lives, it’s easy to Pole Vault right over the things we find difficult and painful.  We can pole vault right…

Fear is a Liar

Fear is a Liar!  The fruits of fear are:  anxiety, condemnation, impatience, anger, angst, bitterness and the list goes on.  This is the fearful life the Jews are living as we catch up with them in Numbers 21.  It’s also a similar fear that Nicodemus has in John 3. To both, God has a very…

At-One-Ment

We will never comprehend the richness and saving power of the New Testament unless we understand the Old Testament.  While we don’t often preach out of Leviticus, today’s ancient Levitical text reveals the power of what Jesus has done for us!  You will never be the same after today.   This sermon was preached on…
