This is my sermon from Easter 3 (April 18). King David felt squeezed and hemmed by his enemies and oppressors. They ridiculed him for praying to God, who doesn’t seem to hear prayer. King David knew otherwise, and still encouraged his enemies to at least consider God before acting any further.
HR1 is included in this sermon because it’s poised to really put a squeeze on Christians, Christianity, and Christian ethics.
Jesus is your Direction Changer! Follow His direction!
Yes. It’s been a while. Nevertheless, we’re in the Epiphany season where the Light of the Christmas Child needs to get out into a spiritually and morally dark world–now more than ever! This is the kids’ version of the sermon.
Hi Family! And Happy New Year! This is the First Sunday in Advent, which means that this is the first Day of the New Church Year!
The word ‘advent’ comes from the Latin which means ‘coming’. The readings in November had us looking up toward Jesus as we wait for His final return, and Advent begins where we left off–looking up and waiting for Jesus’ final return.
Sour grapes in life! We love to blame others and not take responsibility for our own actions. But when it comes right down to it, it’s a matter of the heart. All people are sinners. And we all like to play the blame game.
God looks at each individual’s actions because our actions are derived from “the heart.” We need a new heart and God solves that problem for us.
This week we’re beginning something different for Sundays. The kids at church will be having their own Sunday sermon time–Kid’s Talk. Here’s the video of the sermon on a kids level. Let me know what you think!
