Messages on Faith
During Advent, we asked “are we there yet?” as we journeyed toward the incarnation. Today we continue to ask the question. Christ has come. Herod was frightened and children died. Our call today is to care for each other. Following Christ is a lifelong journey. We may come close to the end, but do we ever get there?
In his letter to Timothy, Paul suggests that disciples of Jesus are generous with what they have. This generosity is in line with the gift that God has given us in Christ Jesus. Pastor Wayne invites you to come and explore 1 Timothy 6:6-19 in today’s message.
Does Jesus expect anything from me? Is the goal of Christianity to be happy? In today’s Gospel Lesson from Luke 14:25-33, Jesus has some hard words for us to hear about what is expected from those who follow him. In this first sermon of the series “What Disciples Do,” Pastor Wayne helps us to understand the cost of following Jesus.
Have you ever thought about the relationship between doubt, faith, and hope? In this sermon on Hebrews 11:1-16, Pastor Wayne leads us on a visit to the Faith Hall of Fame. He shows us how doubt, faith, and hope all combined to help these people of great faith do what God called them to do. He also warns us to the curse of certainty in our beliefs.
