The Gospel Changes Everything
Listen to the sermon archive from this series
Matthew 5:13-20 • February 5, 2017 • Sam Kastensmidt
We continue in the Sermon on the Mount and come to the part of Matthew chapter 5 where Jesus tells us we are "salt" and "light." What does he mean by those words? Answering that question is part of understanding how the Gospel changes everything.
John 17:1-26 • May 28, 2017 • Tom Hendrikse
Jesus gathered with his disciples in the upper room, but the location wasn't important. What he said to them and what he prayed for them is what matters. Jesus wanted his disciples to have unity. The gospel changes our tendency toward petty divisions.
John 14:15-21 • May 21, 2017 • Tom Hendrikse
When we love someone, there is no limit to what we do to please them. Jesus gives his disciples a very simple list--if they love him, keep his commandments. Simple, yet nearly impossible without help. Jesus promises we will have a Helper, the Holy Spirit.
John 14:1-14 • May 14, 2017 • Tom Hendrikse
Most who know anything at all about the life of Jesus like him. Even if they don't believe he is God they think he was a good man. Jesus clearly claimed to be God, however, and this week we hear his polarizing declaration to be the exclusive path to God.
John 10:1-10 • May 7, 2017 • Matt Lomenick
"I am the good shepherd" is one of eight "I am" statements by Jesus. He explains the relationship between sheep and their shepherd to his disciples. Later Jesus tells Peter to shepherd his sheep, and so we also shepherd on his behalf until he comes again.
Luke 24:13-35 • April 30, 2017 • Tom Hendrikse
In Luke 24, Jesus meets two of his disciples after the resurrection. Jesus conceals his identity and spends time teaching them before revealing who he was. Those disciples are then sent out to be witnesses to the risen Christ, just as he sends us today.
John 20:19-31 • April 23, 2017 • Matt Lomenick
The resurrection wasn't the end of Jesus' story; it began another chapter. He appeared to his disciples, and many others as well, overcoming all their skepticism about his return. Pastor Matt brings a great message about faith and the reasons for doubt.
Matthew 21:1-11 • April 9, 2017 • Tom Hendrikse
Palm Sunday celebrates the Triumphal Entry of Jesus into Jerusalem. Jesus, however, wasn't there to conquer, he had come to die. He was, therefore, the unexpected king. Holy Week is an opportunity to introduce others to your King and tell them his story.
John 11:1-45 • April 2, 2017 • Tom Hendrikse
A close friend of Jesus called Lazarus fell ill and, when Jesus didn't heal him, died. Jesus raised him from the dead, so those observing might believe. The Gospel changes how we think about death, while Jesus receives us even though we carry its stench.
John 9:1-41 • March 25, 2017 • Tom Hendrikse
Jesus encounters a man who was born blind. First Jesus restores the man’s physical sight, then later gives him spiritual sight so he could see Jesus was the Messiah. God can use dark and difficult things to bring spiritual light to us and those around us.
John 4:5-42 • March 18, 2017 • Tom Hendrikse
Living water is another phrase commonly heard around churches, but what does it mean? Is it really water? Tom Hendrikse relates the story of Jesus and the woman at the well to answer those questions, and we learn that the Gospel changes what satisfies us.r.
John 3:1-17 • March 11, 2017 • Sam Lamerson
You must be born again. That is a popular phrase among evangelicals, but what exactly does it mean? Sam Lamerson, President of Knox Seminary, examines a conversation between Jesus and a religious leader named Nicodemus to provide us with the answer.
