Clear Focus
    Sermon Note
John 21:15-25

Scripture is Christocentric. Not surprisingly, this closing exchange does not center on the horizontal but the vertical and not upon a son of man but the Son of God. In this final section from this final gospel, what Jesus seeks to impart is essential for all who seek to glorify God with their lives.

Much More Than A Meal
    Sermon Note
John 21:1-14

Certain phrases can become overused in our horizontal observations of life. One such one is, “That’s amazing!” The word “amazed” occurs eleven times in the gospels and every time, it is directly connected with the Son of Man, Jesus Christ. For truly He alone is amazing.

 The Significance of the Announcement
    Sermon Note
Luke 2:8-11

What the angels proclaim changes everything. It wasn't "just" a birth announcement.

 Calm Down
    Sermon Note

Two thousand years ago, the angel declared this message to the shepherds keeping watch over their flock at night: “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men!” (2:14). This was the promise, but is it possible? Is there any truth in this announcement?

 A Substantial Faith

Hebrews 11:1-9

Everyone has faith in something, but not everyone has a faith that is life changing or life altering. For those who have placed their trust in the message of the gospel, there is a Rock solid assurance that the object of their trust will provide all we need for a life of fulfillment. But what exactly is faith? The book of Hebrews has a lot to o say about faith and this sermon will hone in on they hallmark chapter to define and describe why faith is so essential..

 A Different View
    Sermon Notes

John 20:24-31

We can say we have a God-centered perspective and yet how we approach scripture reveals something different as we read into the Bible what we want it to say. We seek to find passages that support our current views. We desire to prove our position and not be reproved of our position. Too often the Bible becomes a book that highlights the works of man and not the work of God in man.

 Can I Tell You Something?
    Sermon Notes

John 20:19-23

Good news isn’t something that’s meant to keep to ourselves. In a nation where the bad news tends to get the headlines, good news is a welcome addition in our lives. And the very best news we could ever receive is out of this world.

John 20:11-18

Even if you aren’t looking for trouble, it will find you. Indeed, “sufficient for the day is its own trouble” (Matthew 6:34). Depression and discouragement and disillusion abound. Two thousand years ago, in the midst of chaos and confusion on the third day after Jesus has been in the tomb, one particular woman encounters something truly remarkable.

John 20:1-10

Jesus of Nazareth has been crucified. The disciples go into hiding. All seems lost as evil appears to win. And then something completely incredible occurs. The most unlikely and truly impossible scenario suddenly seems possible.

 God Never Fails

1 Kings 18:20-40

We live in a world of “fake news” because we live in a world of fake people. Truth is based on popular opinion guided by social media and heresay and thus becomes the basis upon which decisions are made. This results in a world devoid of the wisdom and truth found in God’s Word. This means that as believers in Christ, we will always live in a world of discomfort.

Elijah was in this same position. He was surrounded by a society where the was plenty of fake news with fake people. Social media in this time was heard through the ungodly leadership of Ahab and his leadership who followed the Canaanite god, Baal, who represented prosperity and fetility and was one of the most important gods of that era.

And so, it is appropriate for us to look at this passage in I Kings 18 to understand an important truth about those who oppose God and why God never fails.

    Sermon Notes

John 3, 7, 19

As sure as your entrance into this world was a process – approximately nine months in a womb – so too your entrance into another world is a process. Thankfully, the Author of such a process faithfully commits Himself to it.

    Sermon Notes

Acts 1:1-8

Time and distraction and busyness can gray our emphasis, skew our mission for the Lord and leave us spinning our wheels so that we’re exerting much energy but getting nowhere fast. In a world of commotion, it certainly is easy to lose aim of the main attraction.

 Dead is Dead
    Sermon Notes

John 19:31-37

If there is no Christ, there is no Christianity. If there is no crucifixion, there can be no resurrection. Without a resurrection, we are still lost in our sins. Little wonder why critics and skeptics still seek to cast doubt on the basis of our belief.

    Sermon Notes

John 19:28-30

Much clamors for our attention and distracts. One day we finally ask, “Where did my life go?” In a world of distraction, keep Christ as the main attraction. May we fix our gaze on our incredible Savior

John 19:17-24

We’ve all experienced those unforgettable moments that we really wish we could forget and we’re hoping others already have. As finite, short-sighted, fallible, fragmented individuals, we reap what we sow. Not so for the Savior, who was completely undeserving as He took what we deserved upon Himself..

What Do You Think?
    Sermon Notes

John 19:5-16

Most fear isn’t healthy, especially when that fear is fixated on people. It’ll lead you down detours and through dismal surroundings and into uncertain circumstances. Not surprisingly, the Bible isn’t silent on the matter.

     Sermon Notes

John 19:1-4

In the midst of our trial or hardship, God has a purpose. He understands. He knows. Even though we may not feel it, He is up to something and that something is for our good. Yet not only does He say He knows, He came to earth and experienced it firsthand.

     Sermon Notes

John 18:28-40

Wouldn’t it be great if we were always cool as a cucumber? If “relaxed” was our default response no matter the circumstance? Unfortunately, when the storms of life beat down and the circumstances crash in, we often do not always respond properly to life and the resulting fallout is significant.

     Sermon Notes


Every one of us know someone, perhaps a family member, who suffers from some form of debilitating disease or illness.  How can we minister to these people?  What can we say to them in the face of their adversity?  What do they need to hear when their world comes crashing down around them as the doctor delivers the news?  I would propose to you that what this person needs most is to be pointed to the Creator of the universe.

     Sermon Notes

JOHN 18:25-27

Peter boldly and boisterously follows Jesus but unfortunately, he pivots from this great show of commitment to a response one day that will forever identify him in the march of Jesus to the cross.  His reaction reminds us that it really doesn’t matter who you are.

     Sermon Notes

JOHN 18:12-24  

Of all the things we freely share, one rises far above the others – our opinion.  We really love to share our views about whatever as we weigh in with our two cents.  The same is true when we pivot from the earthly to the heavenly and cons

     Sermon Notes

JOHN 18:1-11  

A million “why” questions bombard us along the journey of life.  And yet, we can remind ourselves that God is always good all the time – even when it seems like evil is triumphing. As much as we long to be in control, Someone else is

     Sermon Notes

JOHN 17:20-26 

Things constantly change no matter how long they stay the same,  Life and all its advantages are only always temporary.  Not so with God.  All that accrues with  us when we enter into a relationship with Him is eternal.  Unlike the here and now, in Christ it's a here and now, and a later and forever.
