Sermon • March 29, 2015
And then one day God sent His Son to be the new and final sacrifice for all. And now through this “once and for all” new sacrifice He reconciled the whole world to Himself through the forgiveness of sin. This new sacrifice ushered in the new covenant or promise which gave us life in The Spirit and this new sacrifice established Christ as our mediator to God granting us unlimited and unprecedented access into God’s presence.

Scene 3 of the Easter Drama reveals that Jesus is a new King set apart by an unmatched authority, and an unshakable kingdom, that he has given that heavenly authority, and that heavenly kingdom to us. So take hold of both because we have been given the right to live from heaven while we are on the earth as Jesus did. His trial guaranteed our triumph. Let’s embrace it!
Sermon • March 15, 2015
If Scene 2 of the Easter Drama describes betrayal and denial, and it does, that description is only the backdrop against which God reveals the greater truth of his unconditional and transforming love. A love that reaches out, and heals a wounded soldier who had come to harm Jesus, and a love that restores Peter wrecked by his own denial of Jesus, and re-commissions him as an apostle. God loves you no less unconditionally, and he restores you no less fully. Embrace his NEW LOVE again today, and move forward in the adventure he has for you.
