Why Preaching? (And How To Receive God’s Word)

Media, New Year Essentials, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

We begin a set of annual sermons we refer to as our new year essentials. These sermons address subjects and important themes that we must repeatedly return to for the glory of God and the transformation of our inner and outer lives. These are not, of course, the same sermons. Rather, they are different sermons, taking different angles, on issues we need to come back to again-and-again. We begin our series by considering the significance of preaching and how best to receive God’s preached Word.

Seeing God Clearly

Media, Sermons | by Pastor Craig Sturm

We unpack one of the most simple, yet profound statements in all of the Bible—Jesus’ call to purity of heart and the subsequent promise of seeing God in Matthew 5:8. What does it mean to “see God”? What does it mean to be “pure in heart”? How does that impact how we understand our life, the genuineness of our faith, and the single-mindedness of our hearts? These are worthy questions to ponder as we enter into a new year!

Walking with God in Trust

Media, Sermons, Walking With God | by Pastor Craig Sturm

Walking With God

We continue our series in the Psalms that runs parallel to our series in Romans. Its purpose is to help us learn from the psalmists what it means to faithfully walk with God through the ups-and-downs of life in a world marred by sin. Today, in Psalm 20, we learn the centrality of walking with God in trust at all times—even in our “days of trouble”.

The Glory of Jesus’ Incarnation

Christmas 2020, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

Christmas 2020

Merry Christmas! Christmas, from Christ-mass, marks the arrival of Jesus the Christ, the God-Man, who came to seek and save the lost (Lk. 19:10). While the stories surrounding his arrival are commonplace, He is not common. There is no one like him, which is why the Apostle Paul described his own ministry as one of proclaiming the “unsearchable riches of Christ” (Eph. 3:8). This Christmas Eve, we consider just one of those riches—the glory of Jesus’ incarnation.

Is Unconditional Election Unjust?

Media, Romans, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

Romans

We continue our study of the most influential, life-changing, worldview-shaping letter ever written: Romans. It is a timeless, divinely-inspired masterpiece on the joy-filled-life-as-it-should-be freedom found in Jesus. We are in our second week of considering Romans 9, a fitting Big-God antidote to modern day truth decay, even within Jesus’ church. Paul’s big idea in 9:14-18 is that God is just (or, righteous) in his unconditional election.

It is a timeless, divinely-inspired masterpiece on the joy-filled-life-as-it-should-be freedom found in Jesus. In Romans 8:29-30, Paul unpacks the massive foundation that undergirds God’s promise to “work all things for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.” Today, we’ll look at the second half of this foundation in verse 30.
