Won’t You Listen to the Word of Christ?

Jesus went home to teach in the synagogue he had attended as a child. It didn’t go well. Their familiarity with him made it hard for them to hear what he was saying. Many who think of themselves as Christians have a similar problem and because of it they miss the blessings God offers.

Sermon on Luke 4:14-30

The Cost of Discipleship

Audio Sermon Luke 14:25-35
If eternal life is a gift from God, why does Jesus tell us to count the cost? What does it cost to follow Jesus? I invite you to listen in as I answer these questions for my congregation and encourage them to remain faithful, come what may.

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.

Today This Prophecy Has Been Fulfilled

Text: Luke 4:16-30

When Jesus visited his hometown he claimed to be a prophet and to have been anointed with God’s Spirit to bring salvation to his hearers.
