Exodus 20:15 || Generosity

'“Ten Words” Sermon Series || The 8th commandment, you shall not steal, is one we innately know is wrong, and yet we expect it to happen. In this sermon we look at two things. First, we study the first theft recorded in the scriptures, and second, using a familiar story from the New Testament, we explore the theme of generosity, the implied positive of the 8th commandment.

Exodus 20:13 || Sanctity of Life

'“Ten Words” Sermon Series || What exactly does the 6th commandment command? How are we to submit ourselves to it? Is it simply a command to not murder? If so do we really even need to take the time to preach on it? Or does it perhaps go deeper than that? Does this command actually call us to show hospitality...even to our enemies? We attempt to answer all these questions in this week’s sermon as we continue our study of the 10 Commandments.

Exodus 20:14 || Purity

'“Ten Words” Sermon Series || The 7th commandment, to not commit adultery, reminds us that God holds the institution of marriage in high esteem. So high, in fact, that He uses this picture the most throughout the Bible to describe His relationship with His people. Therefore, it is vital that we not only have a proper understanding of His design for marriage, but that we value and prize it as highly as He does.

Hebrews 2:5-18 || The Man of Hope

Long Expected (Advent 2017) Series || Prophecies like Numbers 24:17 and Zechariah 6:12-13 filled the Jewish people with a hope that God would one day send a Deliverer. The star, the branch, and the scepter became symbols associated with this messianic figure who would fill the roles of Prophet, Priest and King. Prophet: The One who reflects the Light of God’s Word (star). Priest: The One interceding on our behalf and through whom we are grafted in as God’s children (branch). King: The One who will reign over all creation forevermore (scepter). In this first sermon of our Advent (meaning “arrival” or “coming”) series we reflect on the first coming of Jesus, this long expected Messiah, the Son of God, who humbled Himself by entering our world as a little baby, and rejoice that He is our Prophet, Priest and King.
