Zechariah’s Song

Media, Sermons, Songs of Christmas | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

Songs of Christmas

We are currently in the midst of a month-long Advent series, The Songs of Christmas, in which we are exploring the soul-thrilling wonders of Christmas. Each week we are reflecting on a different biblical song that emerges around the arrival of God-in-the-flesh, Jesus Christ. Last week, we considered Mary’s Song (Lk. 1:46-55). Today, we will look at Zechariah’s Song (Lk. 1:67-80) which reveals a new day has dawned for those living in darkness—and anyone can get in on it.

Mary’s Song

Media, Sermons, Songs of Christmas | by Pastor Craig Sturm

Songs of Christmas

Today we launch our Advent series titled the “Songs of Christmas.” Our hope is to freshly stir affections around the wonder of the incarnation that Jesus, is Emmanuel God with us! We are asking that the Spirit would take the old- old-story, and blow our minds away with new wonder as we see together how the great Author entered the story that He wrote, to weave us into the epic redemptive story He is still writing. This morning, we begin in Luke 1:46-56, with Mary’s song of faith-filled wonder and joyful submission to the sovereign goodness of God.

The Pharisee and the Tax Collector

Media, Parables of Jesus: Windows into Reality, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

Parables of Jesus: Windows into Reality

Today, we end on the Parable of the Pharisee and Tax Collector found in Luke 18:9-14. This parable is a beautiful, yet shocking, picture of the upside-down nature of the kingdom of God. It confronts us with the all-important question, “How do I know where I stand with God?” and is a fitting conclusion to our series.

Media, Parables of Jesus: Windows into Reality, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

Parables of Jesus: Windows into Reality

This morning we are continuing our series, The Parables of Jesus: Windows into Reality, in which we are exploring ten of Jesus’ most famous parables. Today, we reach the Parable of the Vineyard Workers, found in Mt. 20:1-16. This parable highlights God’s extravagant grace and the human heart’s propensity to envious grumbling. It shocks us with God’s undeserved favor, warns us against heartblinding envy, and sends us into the city with good news at the eleventh hour.

Media, Parables of Jesus: Windows into Reality, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

Parables of Jesus: Windows into Reality

This morning we are continuing our series, The Parables of Jesus: Windows into Reality, in which we are exploring ten of Jesus’ most famous parables. Today, in the Parable of the Rich Fool (Lk. 12:13-21), Jesus invites us to consider where we believe life is found and challenges commonly held assumptions about the role of material possessions. If life does not consist in the abundance of our things then in what does it consist?

The Parable of the Good Samaritan

Media, Parables of Jesus: Windows into Reality, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

Parables of Jesus: Windows into Reality

Today, we reach the Parable of the Good Samaritan, found in Luke 10:25-37. This is one of Jesus’ best known and most loved parables but it may also be one of his most misunderstood. As we’ll see, this is not ultimately a story about showing grace to those in need, but a story that highlights our need for grace.

Parables of Jesus: Windows into Reality

Today, we reach the Parable of the Unforgiving Servant, found in Matthew 18:21-35. This parable contains Jesus’ major treatment on forgiveness. Living in a broken world, as a broken person, surrounded by broken people will provide ample opportunity to forgive and be forgiven. But, why should we forgive?
