There are usually two kinds of people in relation to God. Those who think they’ve earned their favor with God, and those who think they have to still earn favor with Him. Both are born out of pride. However, God always injects a ‘but’ into our processes. But...a righteousness is being revealed that has nothing to do with our striving, or lack of striving, it is rather by faith. Let’s see what Paul says about this at the end of Romans 3.

Like the police handcuffing a person who’s gone off their rocker, it’s a wake up call which will hopefully lead to repentance & change in a persons life. The Law of God, therefore, was put into place in order to wake us up to our need of salvation - it’s like looking in a mirror & seeing the real you. Without that reflection you’d never see how dirty you really are. The Law is equated with a pedagogue, a teacher, who takes you by the hand leading you in understanding to Christ. The mirror has no power to cleanse you, rather it can only reveal what you really are. Are the issues explored in this weeks sermon. u

Does our church heritage, tradition, and the means of Grace available to us drive us deeper into relationship with Jesus? Or, do we rest on our laurels, in a false security of relationship without concern to our heart & life before Him? These are the questions explored this week in Romans 3:1-8.

The question everyone is asking is what will fulfill me? But the real question is who? The tomb is empty, the promises are not - Christ Lives! In this sermon we compare the similarities between the inner sanctum of the Holy of Holies & the Ark of the Covenant with Christ’s tomb & resurrection.

Jesus entered Jerusalem at the onset of Passover, as the Passover Lamb, yet facing people with faulty hopes, and selfish hearts. What he came to bring was not what they’d expected. Yet, he gave His all, will we recognize the time of God’s visitation; his gift in Christ? Will we eat the whole Passover meal, or only the choicest parts?

When we point our finger in judgment against someone else, three fingers point back at us. There is no one who is pure & perfect, we all are in need of Jesus - rich, poor, republican, democrat, gay, straight, conservative or liberal. How can we self-evaluate in light of the Gospel of Christ, learning to love everyone with the love of Jesus?

Who or what will dictate our lives is a question which really asks, who or what will we worship. God doesn't coerce worship or obedience, yet when His Word is disregarded, futility & darkness ensue, giving way to destructive behavior. We explore these thoughts at the end of Romans 1 this week.

Jesus was indignant when the disciples stood between him & children. How do we as parents & church members stand between Jesus and our children? We do this in three ways. By lack of discipline & guidance. By passive spiritual development of our kids. And finally by a lack of modeling Christ & a devotion to the spiritual life ourselves. In light of a dedication, we reevaluate our role in the lives of our children this week by looking at Mark 10 and Jesus’ desire for us to get out of the way and allow the children to come to him.

Almost nothing of societal thinking drives us towards the acknowledgement & reality of God. The humanistic mind would say we’re progressing, but the thinking Christian knows we’ve only allowed our idols to overshadow Jesus. How have we come to devolve so far in our thinking? In this sermon we look at Romans 1 & using art, philosophy, writers, and mathematicians we explore the development of our intellectual heritage and how it has devolved away from a deep spirituality.
