Centered in Redemption

On Sunday, October 29th, 2017 in Centered

Of all the sermons in this series, this one probably seems the clearest to us when it comes to “knowing God’s will.” We know that God is on mission in our world. Oh, we think we go on mission trips, but it really is the Lord who is on mission, as Jesus said it, “seeking … Continued

Centered in Relationship

On Sunday, October 22nd, 2017 in Centered

As we looked at “faithfulness” last week and remembered how clear it is that redemption is God’s will for us, this week might not be so clear. We often talk about being in a relationship with Jesus, we understand that God wants a relationship with us, but how often do we feel like He is … Continued

Centered in Faithfulness

On Sunday, October 15th, 2017 in Centered

Faithfulness seems to be something our world has left behind. We are far more likely to display unfaithfulness that we are to be solid and sold-out and faithful. But as Christians, we know God’s faithfulness and that His faithfulness is unfailing and un-ending. More than that however, God wants, desires, hopes-to, display His faithfulness to … Continued

Centered in Justice

On Sunday, October 8th, 2017 in Centered

If we don’t look out for them, who will? If we don’t look out for the needs of the poor and disenfranchised, who will? If we don’t look out for the widows and the fatherless, who will? Of course the answer is “The Lord will” and the Lord will because bringing justice to those who … Continued

Centered in Servanthood

On Sunday, October 1st, 2017 in Centered

  Save We move this week from living in humility, to the by-product of living humbly, namely, servanthood. People who are centered on themselves, their needs, their wants, their desires cannot see the people around them and the needs of those people. But Christianity is not only all about living in humility, but also all … Continued

Centered in Humility

On Sunday, September 24th, 2017 in Centered

Humility, true humility, is something that our world seems to have left behind. We experience prideful people day in and day out, people who look at themselves as the end all, be all or the expert in every subject on the face of the earth. Sometimes it’s us…sometimes we’re the problem, the ones who are … Continued

Centered in Holiness

On Sunday, September 17th, 2017 in Centered

This is a tough trait for us to understand and even tougher for us to display. We know ourselves. We look in the mirror and know that more often than not, we’re anything but “holy”. And yet, it is God’s will that we “be holy” and it is so because our Lord is holy and … Continued

Centered in Compassion

On Sunday, September 10th, 2017 in Centered

Compassion is a trait that everyone admires. When you encounter a compassionate person, you are immediately drawn into them and the way that they live their story by intensely loving others. Perhaps that’s because compassion is at the heart of who our Lord and God is. He is compassion…not just compassionate. Therefore compassion is also … Continued

Centered in Mercy

On Sunday, September 3rd, 2017 in Centered

If there is a word that describes the Lord our God it is “merciful.” The Lord is full of mercy and that’s a good thing for us who desperately need the mercy He willingly brings to sinners. Every Christian knows His mercy because every Christian has been given His mercy. Mercy meaning “the right to … Continued
