Weekend Review: Law and Order

This past weekend, we opened up a really complex teaching of Jesus. He says this in Matthew 5:17-20 (NLT)… “Don’t misunderstand why I have come. I did not come to abolish the law of Moses or the writings of the prophets. No, I came to accomplish their purpose. I tell you the truth, until heaven…

The Jesus Experiment: Law and Order

This weekend, we are continuing in our series, The Jesus Experiment, looking at what if we actually just do what Jesus says. That, if Jesus says it, we should just do it. But, before we get to the more well-known sayings like, “Turn the other cheek” or “Love your enemies,” Jesus wants to discuss the…

Weekend Review: Salty and Bright

Last weekend, we looked at Jesus’ calling for us to be “salt and light.” In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus says, “You are the salt of the earth” and “You are the light of the world.” (Matthew 5:13a, 14a, NLT) And, what we learned is that the word “you” is plural, meaning that this…

Weekend Review: Incarnation

This past weekend, I attempted to teach the theology of “Incarnation.” This is a huge, massive, and very complex topic, but I wanted to at least start the conversation about it. 1. A MESSY FAMILY We began by noticing that Jesus was born into a very messy family (see Matthew 1). We read of Tamar,…

Advent: Incarnation

This weekend, we are going to be diving pretty deep. I know that often for Advent sermons we talk about important things, but sometimes we focus on the lighter side of things. There is nothing wrong with this, as that’s needed too. But, for this sermon, I want to dive pretty deep into what the…

Weekend Review: A Misfit Christmas

This past weekend, we looked at how Christmas belongs to the misfits. We looked at the following people… 1. MARY Mary was from a backwater town, with no power, money, position, or agency.

Advent: A Misfit Christmas

This weekend, we are starting our series on Advent – a time when we prepare and get ready for the coming of Jesus. And, I think that’s important, because while many of us prepare for Christmas (i.e. present, decorations, cookies, parties), we can forget to prepare for Jesus amidst all our other preparations. That’s what…
