Divine Light for a Dark World

Audio recording of my sermon on Matthew 4:12-25, delivered January 22nd, 2017.

Matthew wrote that Jesus’ preaching and miracles fulfilled what God had said through Isaiah—that the residents of Galilee, who lived in spiritual darkness, would see a great light. How does Jesus’ preaching of repentance and the coming Kingdom of God enlighten people and give them life? Give a listen and find out!

Lamb of God, Son of God

Audio recording of a sermon on John 1, delivered January 15th, 2017.

John called Jesus the Lamb of God, the Son of God, and the one who will baptize with the Holy Spirit. These “names” tell us a lot about who Jesus is and what he has done for us.

Simon and the Sinful Woman

Audio Sermon Luke 7:36-50

Who is Jesus and who is worthy to receive him? Pastor Hinkle has answered these questions as he worked through Luke 7.  In this short sermon, he reviews the answers and sets before us the powerful grace of the one who came to save sinners.

Be Reconciled to God

Audio Sermon
Luke 15:11-32 & 2 Corinthians 5:16-21

Sometimes reconciliation is easier than we think. Other times it is quite difficult.

How hard is it for someone to be reconciled to God? For the willing person it is quite easy, but not all are willing.

In this sermon, Pastor Hinkle uses Jesus’ parable of The Prodigal Son and Paul’s second letter to the Corinthians to urge his listeners to be reconciled to God. Why were Jesus and Paul were urging reconciliation upon people who knew God? Listen as Pastor Hinkle explains.

 

My God, My God, Why Have You Forsaken Me?

Seven Things Jesus Said from the Cross, Part 4
Audio Sermon on Matthew 27:45-49

You’ve probably experienced rejection sometime in your life, but not like this.

Although some were wondering if  God might somehow deliver Jesus and usher in the Messianic Kingdom, God turns away and Jesus dies–alone and forsaken.

Is this a tragic miscarriage of justice? Or is something greater going on? Why did God forsake the man He called His beloved Son? Pastor Hinkle finds the answer in Psalm 22 and the writings of the apostle Paul.

Father Forgive Them!

Seven Things Jesus Said from the Cross, Part 1

Audio Sermon on  Luke 23:33-35

Who was Jesus asking God to forgive? It wasn’t just the soldier pounding in the nails! There were others on His mind that day, too. Since his resurrection he continues to intercede for those who need God’s forgiveness. In this sermon from Ash Wednesday (2016), Pastor Hinkle encourages listeners to consider their own need for forgiveness and explains why God forgives and how He communicates that forgiveness to those who need it.
