While imprisoned on the island of Patmos, the apostle John had a profound experience. It was a look into the details of Jesus’ second coming, events which have excited the imaginations of Christians for centuries. But the circumstances surrounding Jesus’ return are not the most important part of John’s vision. Believers should take heed of the first five words of the book of Revelation which state that the whole vision is a revelation of Jesus Christ Himself. In this week’s chapel sermon, Glenn Meldrum delivers a powerful message unpacking the beauty and majesty of the Apocalypse of Jesus Christ and what that means for all who call themselves Christians.
The Apocalypse of Jesus Christ
November 7, 2021
The Word Became Flesh
January 19, 2022
John begins his gospel by describing the splendor of one whom he refers to as “the Word.” He systematically lays out claims about this Word, this Person, that would have shocked and even offended the religious people of His day. John reveals who he’s talking about when he states that the Word became flesh and dwelt among us. He reveals that this grand character is the man, Jesus Christ. The implication that a poor Jewish man from Nazareth was the God of creation manifested in flesh and blood has challenged many minds for centuries. But as Dustin Renz brings out in this message, this truth has astounding implications for all who are willing to believe it in faith.
God With Us
January 5, 2022
In the beginning, man lived in unbroken fellowship with God. But when sin entered the world, that relationship broke apart. Despite this separation, God still desired to be with us, and He knew that we needed Him with us. So, he began a long campaign to restore that fellowship. God’s greatest step in drawing near to us came through Jesus Christ. Nate Danser helps us see this mission of God, beginning with Noah and culminating in Jesus. He also shows how our lives are completely changed when we allow Him to be with us.
Come Unto Me
December 29, 2021
In Matthew 11, we see the heart of Christ when He says, “Come unto me all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." These words reflect His heart for sinners, for those who are broken, those needing healing, and even His heart for the hypocritical Pharisees. Some would heed that call, but many would reject it. That’s still true today. We’re excited to begin a new sermon series where our chapel speakers will be preaching through the life of Jesus. And this week, Pastor Ed starts us off by examining this great call of Christ in the gospels and how it isn’t an invitation to religion, dogma or denomination. It’s an invitation to Jesus Himself.
