“Dear Diary…only three days until I give up my life…” – Children’s Message
Based on John 12:20-33
 
Do keep a diary? Did you ever wonder what Jesus would have written in his journal with only three days until he would give up his life? Based on what happened on Tuesday of Holy Week, he would have thought about a transition taking place, the “big picture” of why his death was so important, Satan’s role in everything, and what he wanted for his followers moving forward and much more. We explored what Jesus might have written in his diary on that Tuesday - based on this Gospel lesson!

    “Healing from the Fire”
    Based on Numbers 21:4-9
     
    Each of us goes through fiery trials in our lives. Many times we think God owes us a comfortable life and we are disappointed when he allows these fiery trials in our lives. In Numbers 21 we see how God prepares us for the cure of the sickness of disappointment and how he also offers the cure.

    “Jesus Is Zealous for His Temple”
    Based on John 2:13-22
     
    When most people think of Jesus, they don’t think of THIS Jesus: temple-cleansing Jesus, the Jesus who is consumed with zeal for his Father’s house! But why is it crucial that we know the WHOLE Jesus? And what does it mean that he is zealous for his Father’s house? These are the questions we explore in this sermon.

    “The Need for the Cross”
    Based on Mark 8:31-38
    Jesus said he must go to the cross. Many people may wonder why. Why did he have to go there? If he really is God, couldn’t he have just “waved his wand” and all sins would be gone? While there are plenty of reasons why he needed to go to the cross, two stick out. He needed to go to give us everything we needed both emotionally and legally.

    Feb 18, 2018
    “Passing a Test of Faith – the answers are found in Lent!”
    Based on Genesis 22:1-14
    Abraham had quite a test of faith to deal with. God told him to sacrifice his only son as a burnt offering on the top of a mountain. Would you have passed the test? We still face tests of faith all the time. The story of Abraham teaches us two things: Always obey God’s command and trust in God’s mercy. The season of Lent teaches us the same things! May God help us pass those tests of faith as we learn those lessons throughout this season of the church year.

    “Take the Transfiguration with You”
    Based on Mark 9:2-9
    It’s a mysterious event that happened to Jesus when he was transfigured on that mountain. He revealed his glory in a dramatic way to his disciples. But what does Jesus’ transfiguration really mean? And what does it have to do with us? More than you might think…
