Passage: John 1:14-51
Duration: 43 mins 19 secs
We are natural born seekers. As infants, we look for a face that beholds us with love. As children we play games of hide and seek. As we age, we seek friendships, spouses, and meaningful work. Along the way, we need people to guide us. They join our quest. These truths hold true in our search for God. If we want to see him and dwell with him for eternity, we must seek Jesus. Good news: He sought us first!

Emotions are signals and connectors. They live and flow deep within us. Sometimes they emerge in unexpected ways. While our culture makes too much of them, in the church we have relegated emotions to the basement of our spiritual lives. We must unearth them. Emotions are essential to our humanity, and they reflect the nature of God. This sermon will provide a theology of emotions and six ways to become more emotionally healthy.

"You are your body." While this phrase is not only contested in contemporary, secular debate, this belief has also crept into the church. We have a low view of the body. And yet, this goes against the biblical evidence that describes our bodies being good and essential by design. This sermon casts a biblical vision for the body, helping us to embrace our embodiment and become healthier humans.

God created us with desire. Our consumer culture exploits this, surfacing desires it cannot satisfy with material goods. We are conditioned to want more, more, more. However, the secret to a godly life is to trust that God's enough. This message will take us through 1 Timothy 6:2-10, dealing with false teaching, money, and how to redeem desire.

Series: Easter
Duration: 41 mins 41 secs
Jesus's death was tragic. His resurrection was triumphant. Indeed! The resurrection reorients reality. It gives us a picture of overcoming faith, everlasting life, and renewal. This sermon will walk us through Matthew's final chapter in three acts. Along the way, we will engage in sensory activities to engage more fully in the Easter story.

Christian faith is embodied. We do not simply love God with our mind and emotions. We love him with our eyes, fingers, stomach, and legs. God designed us as image-bearers; we serve him in our bodies. He gave us creation to steward and enjoy--trees for climbing, fruit for eating, gardens for cultivating. And he expected us to forge bonds of friendship and family. The false teachers in Ephesus had rejected the goodness of creation. They were teaching a life of abstinence not faithful engagement. This passage is a challenge to their errant thinking that still plagues the church today.

During the COVID pandemic, the term "essential workers" became common nomenclature. These were people with jobs that provided infrastructure for our country. Without their work, our nation would collapse. The church, too, has essential workers. Paul called them "deacons." They are doers, good stewards, and trusted teammates in ministry. They work behind the scenes so the work of God goes forth. This sermon highlights the historic service of deacons and several people who serve in this capacity at our church.

Prayer is important. Most of us would concur. However, many of us struggle to pray regularly and with purpose. Paul turns Timothy's attention to prayer. It is powerful a nd pivotal for the peace of the congregation and its public witness. This was true in ancient Rome where Christians were viewed with suspicion. It is true today, where Christian faith is viewed with skepticism. If we want to good standing in these godless times, we should get praying!

Your life tells a story. What is at the center? Your successes or failures? Your family of origin or romantic exploits? Your journeys, anxieties, or idols? The apostle Paul was living a story of religious zeal and ignorance. Then Jesus interrupted him. The Lord confronted Paul, gave him a new calling, and centered his story around God's mercy. Perhaps you need interrupted too.

Jesus had a mission. So do we. Our flows from his, but Jesus accomplished MORE than we ever could. He sought and saved the lost. We love God and others. This is our mission. This is our MUST. And life without a must amounts to LESS. This is the first sermon about our 2024 theme: LESS IS MORE.
