V-I-C-T-O-R-Y! That’s the Christian’s Battle Cry!

Sermon on Genesis 22:1-18 for the 1st Sunday in Lent, February 18, 2018   Grace, mercy, peace, victory and life are yours from God our Father and our Lord Jesus Christ! I’d like to reminisce a little; back to my high school years, spent at one of our Synod’s preparatory high schools – Michigan Lutheran…

How Far Will We Go For the Gospel?

A sermon on I Corinthians 9:16-23 for the 5th Sunday after Epiphany, February 1 and 4, 2018. We will go the extra mile for you. Businesses want this as their motto.

Sermon on Mark 1:21-28 for 4th Sunday after Epiphany, January 28, 2018

There are times when it’s necessary to obtain proof of a person’s authority to do something.  A plainclothes law enforcement officer comes to your door to ask questions.  If that individual didn’t immediately produce a badge or credentials, you’d ask to see them as proof that he or she has the authority to be there…

God’s Love Goes the Distance

A sermon on Jonah 3:1-5, 10, for the 3rd Sunday of Epiphany, January 18/21, 2018. There is a saying that goes like this, “Love conquers all.” Some ascribe this to the Latin poet Virgil. Even bigger than who said it is what does this phrase mean? The answers will vary depending on whom we ask….

Baptism Means Being United with Christ

Sermon on Romans 6:1-11 for the Baptism of Our Lord, January 11 & 14, 2018 Maybe you’ve had this thought when hunting or fishing, or maybe when you really wanted to borrow something: “It’s easier to ask forgiveness than it is to ask permission.” That’s a saying that’s been around—and I think it should be banned because…

Let God Build Us Up in the New Year

A sermon on Colossians 2:6-15 for New Year’s Day, January 1, 2018. Roots serve a very important function in a plant’s life. Roots help anchor a plant so that it stands firm in the ground. Vitamins and minerals make their way throughout the plant through its root system. Roots help the plant to grow and…

It’s About Time

Sermon on Psalm 90 for New Year’s Eve December 31, 2017 Psalm 90 is the New Year’s Eve Psalm because it has so many words that reflect on time. I could read a list of them, but it would be about like reading the whole psalm again. It was written by Moses, somebody who had seen…

Mary: A Favored, Blessed, Believing Servant

Sermon on Luke 1:26-38 for the Fourth Sunday in Advent, December 21 & 24, 2017 We Lutherans don’t usually say too much about Mary, and I’m sure that it is because there is another Christian denomination that has a habit of saying way too much about her—even praying to her and calling her the queen of heaven….

Proclaim the Christmas Message

Sermon on Isaiah 52:7-10 for Christmas Day, December 25, 2017. Soon, if it has not happened already, we will start to hear all about the presents a person received. Children will proudly boast of their new toys. Clothes will be shown off. New gadgets will be set up for us. It answers one of the…

Listen, An Important Message Comes

A sermon on Mark 1:1-8 for the 2nd Sunday of Advent, December 7 and 10th, 2017. If any of you are like me, the following situation might play out at home. The phone rings. Without looking at the caller I.D., I pick it up. Immediately, I regret answering the phone. “This is an important message…

God Is Faithful

Sermon on 1 Corinthians 1:3-9 for the First Sunday in Advent, November 30 & December 3, 2017 I was a terrible student. Sometimes I tried to absorb what was going on in class and then just wing it on a test, or other times, I would just go along in the class for the ride, and then…

Remember the Lord!

Sermon on Deuteronomy 8:16-20 for Thanksgiving, November 22 and 23, 2017. There are certain things that are worth remembering. We want to remember where we left our keys. Many might spend countless minutes searching pockets, counters, drawers, and hooks in a desperate search to find car keys. Gentlemen never want to forget their wife’s birthday…

A Peek at Heaven

Sermon on Revelation 7:9-17 for Saints Triumphant, November 16 & 19, 2017 On Saint’s Triumphant Sunday, our thoughts turn to heaven and to the people we love who are there, who see Jesus face to face. Usually at funerals, people say things that reveal their thoughts about heaven. People mean well. I know that. And on…

Jesus’ Verdicts Make You Generous

Sermon on Matthew 25:31-46 for 2nd Sunday of End Times – Last Judgment, November 12, 2017   Grace to you and peace from God our Father, and from our RETURNING Lord Jesus Christ!

Christ Won Freedom For Us

Sermon on Galatians 5:1-6 for Reformation Sunday, November 2nd and 5th, 2017. Freedom. One simple word, yet it is a simple word that packs a lot of meaning.
