The Bad Shepherds

  The Bad ShepherdsZechariah 10:1-5June 4, 2023 One of the beauties of Scripture is that it takes a transcendent, infinite, unknowable God and reveals Him to us not only so that we can know Him, but that we can understand Him.  One way the Bible does that is by taking things that we know and […]

God, the Faithful Shepherd-King

God, the Faithful Shepherd-KingZechariah 9:11-17May 14, 2023 I suppose most people in most nations complain about their political leaders.  Ingrained in the fallenness of man is an inherent rebellion against authority.  So, we don’t like kings (or presidents, or dictators, or senators, or…).  We don’t want anyone ruling over us, dictating what we will do […]

The last miracle of redemption

I would not say that miracles “abound” in Scripture.  There are miracles in the Bible.  There are many miracles.  By definition, miracles are astounding, incredible, unusual, and wondrous.  And the miracles of the Bible are all those things.  Think of the miracle of 2 million people crossing the Red Sea on dry land, getting across […]

Sermon: He Prays for You

He Prays for You Romans 8:26-27 December 16, 2018 I saw another article on the topic this week.  We are lonely.  The Wall Street Journal article even called baby boomers, “The Loneliest Generation,” saying, Baby boomers are aging alone more than any generation in U.S. history, and the resulting loneliness is a looming public health […]
