Too Good to be True

Sometimes the resurrection seems to good to be true, but this Easter sermon challenges us to be the living proof. The world needs an appearance of Jesus and a word from Him. Will it come from you and me?

Whose Valley?

This sermon on faith, a brief reflection on Psalm 23, encourages us with this thought: Our lord himself has passed through the valley of the shadow of death for us. We need not fear any evil. Our salvation is not maintained by our fragile faith. But we are kept by the power of God. Our forgiveness is in His shed blood. In our crisis of faith, the long pause the deep breath, we must not lose heart for hope flies on the wings of the dawn.

He Came Back

A risen Savior comes back -- again and again -- to the very ones (I'm talking about us!) who so betray and disappoint Him. He appears to us, seeks us, finds, grabs us, embraces, holds. As this Easter sermon attests, in life, in death, in life beyond death, this is our hope. The risen Christ came back to us.

The Rock That Rolled

Grief, Pain, Fear. Monuments too heavy for anybody to budge. And the Prince of Darkness, the spirit that distracts and distresses and destroys, sits on the top of that stone, cleaning his nails with a switchblade knife. Is there no one on this planet to even challenge him! This Easter messages asks, "Who will roll the stone away?" Not three grieving women. Not you. Not me. Only one Man can do it: The Man with the Power.

The Overthrow Of Survivor Island!

What would happen if today's reality TV producers got ahold of the Passion Week story? This Easter sermon creatively contrasts God's way of doing things with the dog-eat-dog rules of Survivor, The Apprentice, and the like.

Resurrection of the Body

This Easter sermon answers the question, Why did Jesus Christ come? He came to give you and me salvation from the past, new life for the present, and a great future beyond this life!

From Doubt to Declaration

This Easter message looks at the story of doubting Thomas and challenges us to consider that "The real issue surrounding Easter is not what Thomas did or did not believe; the real issue for today is whether or not you and I believe this same story."
