The Christian Rejoices in Forgiveness

A sermon on James 4:7-12 for the 19th Sunday after Pentecost, September 27/30, 2018. Some of the hardest words to speak are “I’m sorry.” Oh, they flow from our lips quite easily, but the meaning behind those words is lost. We say that we are sorry just to get someone off our back. We do…

Sermon on Ephesians 6:10-18  for the 17th Sunday after Pentecost, September 13 & 16, 2018 There’s some craziness going on in our world, in case you haven’t noticed. If you look at history—ancient history or recent history, you see people raging and destroying and doing terrible things to each other. Tuesday was September 11. We remembered what…

Our Heart Leaps for Joy

A sermon on Isaiah 35:4-7a for the 16th Sunday after Pentecost, September 6/9, 2018. The big day arrives. Our palms grow sweaty from the eager anticipation.

“Create in Me a Clean Heart, O God!

Sermon on Mark 7:1-8, 14-15, 21-23 for the 15th Sunday after Pentecost, September 2, 2018 Let me share a little story about a lady I knew about 25 years ago – not here in Beaver Dam.   At the time of this incident I will relate she was about 75 years old.  She was a sweet,…

Jesus Is the Living Bread that Came Down from Heaven

Sermon on John 6:51-69 for the 14th Sunday after Pentecost, August 23 & 26, 2018 When Jesus fed the 5,000, he had a double purpose, like he did for all his miracles. First, to meet someone’s need. (This is actually the way Jesus fulfills the fifth commandment for us. He fed the hungry, healed the sick, and…

Come Lord Jesus

A sermon on John 6:35-51 for 13th Sunday after Pentecost, August 16/19, 2018. “Come Lord Jesus be our guest, let these gifts to us be blessed.

Eat A Good Meal Before Your Tests!

Sermon on 1 Corinthians 10:1-5, 11-13 for the 12th Sunday after Pentecost, August 12, 2018   Dear friends in Jesus, the Bread of Life, It’s been a long time since I took college entrance exams like the SAT or ACT, as well as High School and College Semester exams!  It’s been even longer since I…

Jesus Is God’s “Yes!”

Sermon on 2 Corinthians 1:18-22 for the Eleventh Sunday after Pentecost, August 2 & 5, 2018 This week in our Vacation Bible School, all the lessons were about God rescuing people.

God Supplies for All Our Needs

A sermon on II Corinthians 9:8-11 for the 10th Sunday after Pentecost July 26/29, 2018. It is that time of the year again. If you go into stores, the aisles bring a reminder of what soon will come. Ads, if they have not gone out yet will be soon, announce sales. Parents and children both…

God’s Call Comes….

A sermon on Ezekiel 2:1-7 for the 7th Sunday after Pentecost, July 5/8, 2018.   What was the hardest thing you have ever done? Was it trying to figure out how to properly write a paragraph or deciphering different parts of speech? Was it going off to college only to find out it was no…

“Death Struggles” Are “Life Opportunities”

Sermon on 2 Corinthians 4:7-15 for 6th Sunday after Pentecost, July 1, 2018   Have you ever heard someone say, or have you said, “I’m dyin’ here”?   (On a hot, humid July morning in our un-air conditioned sanctuary you might be saying it in your mind right now!)  I’ve heard it most often out of…

Thankfulness Leads to Faithfulness

Sermon on Matthew 25:14-30 for the Fourth Sunday after Pentecost, June 21 & 24, 2018 I’ve got a problem with the word “stewardship.” We have a “stewardship” section of hymns in the hymnal, we usually have some kind of “stewardship Sunday” in the fall, we have a three-week “stewardship” sermon series–and what do we connect that word…

Overwhelming Gratitude Leads to Overwhelming Generosity

A sermon on Luke 19:1-10 for the 4th Sunday after Pentecost June 14/17, 2017. The story is told of a local fitness center that was offering $1,000 to anyone who could show they were stronger than the owner of the gym. Here’s how it worked: The muscle-bound owner would squeeze a lemon into a glass…
