Count the Cost

December 9, 2018 • Larry Kroon • Luke 14:25-35

The demands of Christian discipleship are absolute and unavoidable. If you are going to say, “yes,” to Jesus you must, in a very real way, say, “no,” to everyone and everything else. No person and no possession can be of more value or importance to you than Jesus. Short of this “all in” commitment, you cannot be a disciple of Jesus. You do not make that sort of commitment without first sitting down and counting the cost. We will be doing that today.

Proclamation

April 28, 2019 • Larry Kroon

Luke’s Gospel tells the story of Jesus. Incarnation, Crucifixion, Resurrection, and finally Ascension. That sequence raises a natural question for us:“What happens now?” Jesus answers that question in our scripture reading today: Proclamation.

Resurrection

April 21, 2019 • Larry Kroon

The Christian witness is simple. It is foundational. It is defendable. And it is, above all, Good News. This Resurrection Sunday we gather to give voice to that witness as God’s People holding to God’s Word, filled by God’s Spirit. “The Lord has risen indeed!”

Remember

April 14, 2019 • Larry Kroon

We have spent two school years working our way through the Gospel of Luke as a congregation on Sunday mornings. With this Easter season we now come to the end: crucifixion, resurrection, mission. Today we look at how best to remember it all in a heart-shaping and life-forming way.
