Sermon

Jesus Speaks to Our Heart

A sermon on Matthew 5:21-37 for the 6th Sunday after Epiphany, February 13/16, 2020. We need to have a heart to heart talk. Immediately, warning alarms ring in our mind. What did I do? Did I offend them in some way? Is some terrible news coming, which I need to brace myself for? A heart…

God’s Law Still Stands

https://youtu.be/e7LfK4uZTeI?t=1773 Sermon on Matthew 5:13-20 for Epiphany 5, A, February 6 & 9, 2020 I know Pastor Heyer has mentioned this in sermons… that phrase that was popular in the 1990s, “What would Jesus do?” It’s not a bad question. Jesus certainly is the best example to follow. But he is more than an example to…

The Lord is Our Light, Salvation and Stronghold

Sermon on Psalm 27 for Epiphany 3, A, January 26, 2020 We remember King David as a person who had many ups and downs—I would say extreme ups and downs compared with our lives. He was a shepherd boy, out in the field, tending his flock. Then he killed the giant Goliath, and everyone shouted…

We Will Not Fall!

A sermon based on Colossians 2:6-15, for the 2nd Sunday after the Epiphany, January 16/19, 2020. Signs all around the perimeter give warnings. Everyone knows the inherent danger that exists from doing this activity. The intermittent whistle sounds causing all to look at the one who broke the rules. Every now and then we see…

Our Hearts Leap for Joy

A sermon on Isaiah 60:1-6 for Epiphany Sunday, January 2/5, 2020. In June 2018, there was a highly publicized rescue effort of a youth soccer team, who were trapped in a cave in Northern Thailand. One day after practice twelve players and one assistant coach explored this cave. While they were in the cave, floodwaters…

We Worship the God Who Does Not Change

A sermon on Luke 2:21 for New Year’s Eve, December 31, 2019. Eight days. A lot can change in eight days. Eight days from now we will be a week into the new year, a new decade even. Life will have gotten back to normal after the hectic holiday schedule. Christmas, even though it was…

The Dark Side of Christmas

Sermon on Matthew 2:13-23 for Christmas 1 (A), December 29, 2019 Christmas has a dark side. It is a part of the popular Christmas culture. Back in the 1840s Charles Dickens gave us Ebenezer Scrooge. While everyone around him was singing “God rest ye merry, gentlemen,” he was anything but merry or gentle. He was…

The Baby Wants to Hold You!

Sermon on Luke 2:1-20 for the Nativity of Our Lord—Christmas Eve, December 24, 2019 It seems that every time I visit a new mother in the hospital, after greetings and some small-talk, the mother often asks me, “Would you like to hold the baby?” Now, I have three children of my own, two grandchildren, so…

Our Joy Anticipates a Great Change!

A sermon on Isaiah 35:1-10 for the 3rd Sunday of Advent, December 12/15, 2019. Joy fills the air. Christmas carols blare continually on the radio. Stores stock their shelves in anticipation of the many shoppers that come in during this time of the year. Houses twinkle in lights of red, green, and white. In case…

Prepare the Way of the Lord

Sermon on Matthew 3:1-12 for Advent 2 (A), December 8, 2019 The season of Advent has many themes. Last Wednesday we heard four prophetic pictures from Isaiah: A child, a sprout from a stump, life in the desert, a royal highway. There are the four “Rs” of Advent, Readiness, Repentance, Rejoicing and Revealing. And then…
