Sermon

God’s Love is Glorious

Sermon on John 13:31–35 for the Fifth Sunday of Easter, May 16 & 19, 2019 Many times in the Bible God is connected with love. The most famous verse in the Bible begins “God so loved the world” (John 3:16). The apostle John writes in his first letter “God is love” (1 John 4:16). There…

The Lamb of God Shepherds God’s Flock

Sermon for 4th Sunday of Easter (Good Shepherd Sunday), May 12, 2019 on Revelation 7:9-17 Dear fellow sheep in the Good Shepherd’s flock,   Many of us enjoy “rags to riches” stories, don’t we?  We like the Cinderella story, from peasant to princess.  We enjoy a good movie story line in which the guy working…

We Join in Singing Praises to Our God

A sermon based on Revelation 5:11-14 for the 3rd Sunday after Easter, May 2/5, 2019. Have you ever seen a celebration so amazing and spectacular that you wish you could just be there? Many times we watch these events on television. You receive an overall view of what things look like. You can still hear…

Death, where is your sting? Grave, where is your victory?

Sermon on 1 Corinthians 15:51-57 for the Easter Day, April 21, 2019 Do you know what a rhetorical question is? It’s a question you ask without really expecting an answer. Public speakers ask them to try to get people thinking about the implied answer. In 1 Corinthians 15, Paul has two rhetorical questions as the conclusion to…

A Curse for Us

Sermon on Galatians 3:10-13 for Good Friday, April 19, 2019 I’m afraid the word “curse” is a foreign word to us. Yes, we know what people say when they accidentally hit their thumb with a hammer or shut their fingers in a door. That’s cursing. Our Catechism class definition of cursing is “Using God’s name to wish…

We’re Caught

A sermon based on II Samuel 12:1-13 for the Confessional Service, April 16, 2019. The deer in the headlights look. The deer stands frozen staring right back into the oncoming headlights. The driver tries to guess the deer’s next movement to avoid an accident. The hearts of both the deer and driver pound rapidly wondering…

Lift Up Your Heads! The LORD Comes to Cleanse, Forgive and Save

Sermon on Psalm 24 for Palm Sunday, April 14, 2019 Today’s sermon is based on Psalm 24, and if you want to follow along, you may turn to page 73 in the hymnal (Christian Worship: A Lutheran Hymnal). About a thousand years before Jesus was born, King David wrote Psalm 24. “Lift up your heads, O you…

One Good Thing Deserves Another

A sermon based on Isaiah 43:16-21 for the 5th Sunday of Lent, April 7, 2019. The expectations have been set. They really knocked it out of the ball park with their activity. How would they ever top this? Did anyone really expect them to start this fast out of the gate? They set the bar…

Let’s Me the “Prodigal” Family!

Sermon on Luke 15:1-3, 11b-32 for the 4th Sunday in Lent, March 31, 2019 The television game show “Family Feud” has been on for at least 25 years, probably more.  Families compete with one another to answer questions and ultimately to win the cash prize. The show begins with the host (Richard Dawson, years ago;…

We Come in Repentance

A sermon on Luke 13:1-9 for the 3rd Sunday in Lent, March 24, 2019. It is time for us to go back to school for a little bit. I have a science question to ask you. What is Newton’s 3rd law of motion? You probably did not think that this would ever come up in…
