Walking with God Amidst Uncertainty

Media, Sermons, Walking With God | by Pastor Marco Ribeiro

Walking With God

We continue in our series of sermons on the Psalms that will run in parallel to our series on 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 13, we see how to draw near to God when we are in pain and uncertain about the future.

God’s Love Has Been Poured Into Hearts

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. Today, we turn to Romans 5:1-5, which marks an important turning point as the Apostle Paul pivots to unfold four profoundly practical, and personal, fruits of justification for our lives today. It’s a dense, powerful, and life-changing passage.

Paul concludes by highlighting the character of justifying faith—What is it like? We cannot be right with God without faith in Jesus, so this is a crucial question.

Heirs of the World by Faith

Media, Romans, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

Romans

This morning 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. Today, we look at 4:13-17a. Paul is in the middle of proving that God’s people, beginning with Abraham, have always been made right with God by faith-not works. As we’ll see, everything is at stake in getting justification right, even the world.

How Does OT Circumcision Relate to NT Baptism

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. Today, we are back in 4:9-12, especially v.11, which for the last 400 years has been used by advocates of infant baptism to build their case. So, let’s examine this claim. But, first, let’s consider why this is relevant for us along with the very real danger, and unfortunate prevalence of, theological minimalism in our day.

In Fact, Christ Has Been Raised

Easter 2020, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

Easter 2020

On Good Friday we remembered Jesus’ substitutionary death on the cross. Today, on Easter, we celebrate Jesus’ climactic victory over the grave through his resurrection. But, did he rise? How do we know? Can we know? Even if he did, what difference does it make for us today? These are the questions the Apostle Paul addresses head-on in 1 Cor. 15:12-20. Let’s dive in together…

Good Friday 2020

Good Friday 2020, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

Good Friday 2020

Good Friday marks the day that Jesus was unlawfully tried and brutally murdered on a cross outside Jerusalem, nearly 2,000 years ago. It can seem so far removed from our lives—historically and culturally—that we simply dismiss it as a mere footnote of history. But, it is not a footnote. Good Friday marks the culmination of the redemptive promises of God in the substitutionary death of Jesus, to rescue all who place their faith in him.

Abraham, The Father of All Who Believe

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. Today, in 4:9-12, Paul continues to reveal the multi-faceted beauties of justification by faith. This is a good opportunity to zoom out, take stock of where we’ve been, and ask, “Why does Paul emphasize justification by faith like he does? Why take so much time to drive this truth home?”

Defending Justification by Faith

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. In 4:1-8, Paul defends justification by faith in a surprising way-by appealing to Abraham and David. In this, he demonstrates that justification by faith is not a new idea, but God’s ancient way of counting the ungodly as righteous (4:5).
