Matthew 27:32-50 “A Savior for Sinners.”

Matthew 27:32-50 "A Savior for Sinners."

Matthew 27:32-50 Not a happy story The story of the crucifixion is not a happy story.  It’s not attractive. It’s not acceptable in popular culture. We like pretty things, nice things, attractive things.  A man dying a horrible and excruciating death is not going to be a point of interest for most people. Crucifixion was […]

Matthew 28:1-10 “The Greatest Day in History”

Matthew 28:1-10 "The Greatest Day in History"

The greatest day ever The resurrection of Christ is the greatest day in human history. No other events in history can compare to it.  The winning of the World Series, the winning of the Super bowl or an NBA championship, the election of a president, the winning of a war, the day you land a […]

A “holiday” For the next few weeks we will be celebrating the coming of Christ as a baby.  Christmas is a cultural holiday, yes.

Matthew 2:13-23 “A Greater King”

Matthew 2:13-23 "A Greater King"

A Disclaimer Now I have to say off the bat that I enjoy the Bible quite a bit, and I really enjoy listening to sermons. I could listen to sermons all day and sometimes I do. Just the other day I was listening to a sermon in my car and I had to stop at […]

Resolutions anyone? It’s the New Year and how many of you have made at least one resolution?  Well today, I do not want to kick off the New Year with a resolution. I want to kick it off with a vision for the church.  Resolutions usually end in failure because resolutions are not fueled by […]

Matthew 26:26-29 "The New Covenant in My Blood"

A few questions   Well since it is Easter season I thought it would be good to spend this week looking at the last few days of Jesus’ ministry before His death. Specifically, I want to look at the night Jesus instituted something called the Lord’s Supper or communion.  And I want to ask the […]

Matthew 2:1-12 “Christ, the newborn King”

Matthew 2:1-12 "Christ, the newborn King"

Anticipation I can remember as a kid anticipating the coming of Christmas. There was a tree and presents and Christmas carols that all reminded me that Christmas was coming. And then Christmas came and I was excited and feeling good but in the back of my mind I was dreading the day after Christmas, when […]
