The sermon for Sunday, May 28, 2017. The sermon text is based on Luke 24:44-53

Today's Focus: The final image one sees of a person can often become emblazed in one's memory.  We will see the final image that Jesus gave to his diciples on earth.  It is not an image of defeat.  Instead, it is one of incredible victory, power and love as he ascends to heaven.  It is this image of love that binds us together in the Christian unity and love which we celebrate.

The sermon for Sunday, May 21, 2017. The sermon text is based on 1 Peter 3:13-22

Today's Focus: Jesus calls us to show his love for him by obeying his instructions and holding to his Word.  We promise to do so as when we take our confirmation vows.  However, on our own, we cannot follow Jesus' directive.  So he promises to send a Counselor-the Holy Spirit-to live in us and empower us to follow him.

The sermon for Sunday, May 14, 2017. The sermon text is based on John 14:1-12
 
Today's Focus: "Iam the way, the truth, and the life."  Christ's message is so exclusive that it rejects all others.  There is only one way to the Father, and that way is in a person.  He does not say, 'I show you the way,' like Moses, but I am the way.

April 30, 2017  
The sermon for Sunday, April 30, 2017. The sermon text is based on Luke 24:13-35
 
Today's Focus: Hope Restored. The certain hope of eternal life with God is founded on the sacrificial death and victorious resurrection of Christ. God had promised this ancient hope in the Garden at the dawn of time. God had carried this ancient hope in his Word through the ages. How did the disciples fail to anticipate the resurrection? How did the teachers and people of Israel fail to see the Messiah God had promised and delivered? They let their wants and cultural expectations color their view of Scripture, and hope was lost. But God restored this ancient hope by raising Jesus from the dead and pointing his people back to his promises.

Today's Focus: In the face of doubt, Jesus gives us proof and peace. To the doubting disciples, he gave certain proof that led to certain peace.

April 16, 2017  
The sermon for Easter Sunday, April 16, 2017. The sermon text is based on 1 Corinthians 15:19-26.
 
Today's Focus: O how dark things looked for Jesus and His followers on Good Friday, as Jesus hung on the cross and died.  How dark must have been the mood of the disciples all through Saturday.  But then came Sunday and everything changed.  Everything!  For Jesus rose!  Now the darkness of gloom and despair was replaced with the "light" of victory and joy!  As Easter changed everything for them, so it changes everything for us.  Jesus has risen to free us from the clutches of sin, death and the devil - a freedom that will never be taken away!  Christ has risen!  He is risen indeed!

The sermon for Maunday Thursday, April 13, 2017. The sermon text is based on 1 Corinthians 11:23-28
 
Today's Focus: Maunday Thursday derives its name from the words Jesus spoke to his disciples on this evening: "A new command I give you: Love one another" (John 13:34). The Latin translation for "command" in this passage is "mandatum", where we get "Maundy" from. On Maundy Thursday, Christ gave a mandate to his followers - to love one another as he has loved us. He demonstrates the full extent of his love by humbly washing his disciple's feet and by feeding them his very flesh for their salvation. Clearly, Christ loves us more than life. Reconciled to God through the flesh and blood of Christ, we are empowered to follow his command to love one another.
