The Wisdom of Service

There are different kinds of spiritual wisdom and they lead to different ways of living. This short sermon from Mark 9:30-37 and James 3 will help you sort out the difference between demonic wisdom and the wisdom that comes from the one true God.

For Thomas and for You

The later part of John’s Gospel recounts two times that Jesus came to his disciple and showed them that he lived and had risen from the dead. As Thomas and the others believed, they received eternal life from their God and Lord. These things were written down and preached throughout the world so that you would also believe that Jesus is the living Christ, the Savior of the world, and receive eternal life by faith in him.

Where Is Your Confidence?

As his meeting with Nicodemus drew to a close, Jesus set before him why God had sent him, what he would accomplish, and why Nicodemus’s friends would not receive him.
