Waiting for Christ’s Return

Being ready for Christ’s return isn’t a matter of knowing when it will occur, it is rather a question of being faithful to the tasks we have been given. You don’t need chats and diagrams to understand what Jesus said in Mark 13, just simple faith in your savior.

Dry Bones

God took Ezekiel out to a valley where dry, human bones littered the ground and asked him, “Can these bones live?” Jeremiah had foreseen the destruction that took place there. Jesus used the valley as a metaphor for hell. Yet, the message God gave Ezekiel was  a message of hope grounded in the power of God’s Word and Spirit.

As Sure As Yesterday’s Sunrise

Christians sometimes forget God has promised us a wonderful new heaven and a new earth. But God hasn’t forgotten and His promises are as sure as yesterday’s sunrise.This is the third sermon in the series “Messages of Hope from the Revelation to St. John.”

 

Come Down, O Lord!

Isaiah, the prophet, cried out to God, “O that you would rend the heavens and come down!”  But if God comes in his glory, Isaiah wonders, can we be saved? For in his words, “we have been long in our sins.”

This short sermon explains how God came and still comes to his people to save them.

To Whom Was the Spirit Given?

The sound of a mighty wind, fire dancing over their heads, men and women praising God in languages they had never learned: these were the signs that God’s Spirit had been poured out upon Christ’s disciples. Let me take you through the lessons for the day of Pentecost and I will show you that the Spirit was given to the whole Church and explain what that means for you.
