    Honoring God with Integrity (James 5:12)

    Honoring God with Integrity (James 5:12)

    James tells us, “do not swear, either by heaven or by earth or by any other oath” which sounds like we are not to take an oath under any circumstances. However, our catechism teaches that we can take an oath. Does this mean that we are merely traditionalists following our tradition? Can we see in Scripture times when we do take an oath?

    What Makes Us Unclean? (Matt. 15:1-20)

    What Makes Us Unclean? (Matt. 15:1-20)

    The pharisees desire to confront Christ because they think that Christ is the one who is misleading his disciples. The pharisees, righteous leaders of Israel, think that Christ should wash before meals. Christ and his disciples do not wash before meals and the pharisees are offended. Why does Christ offend them? What is the fundamental problem with humanity?

    God’s Comforting Oath (Isaiah 45:23)

    God’s Comforting Oath (Isaiah 45:23)

    Israel is in exile when Isaiah writes chapter 45.  You would think that all is lost because Israel has failed, they are in a foreign land, and God should be done with them.  The Lord does not discard his people, but binds himself to deliver his people out of exile.  What does this deliverance teach us about God’s name?  What does this deliverance teach us about the Lord’s redemptive promise?

    Heeding the God of Truth (2 Timothy 3:16,17)

    Heeding the God of Truth (2 Timothy 3:16,17)

    As we profess to be Christians we are called to live our lives for our Lord as living sacrifices.  Our catechism summarizes this so well when it states that we live our lives out of gratitude for our Lord because He has redeemed us.  So, how do we learn what living for the Lord looks like?  How do we know if we are living for the Lord?

    Reviewing Christ’s Mission (Matt. 14:34-36)

    Reviewing Christ’s Mission (Matt. 14:34-36)

    Christ goes to a small town and all the people come out to Christ.  They worship him and bring their sick to him.  What is the purpose of this narrative?  What does this narrative teach us about our need for Christ?  How do we approach our Lord as HIs redeemed?
    (We apologize for the mic issues about halfway into the sermon.  We had to cut a few minutes of the sermon, but you can still get the gist of the sermon)

    Coveting and Idolatry (Ephesians 5:5)

    Coveting and Idolatry (Ephesians 5:5)

    The Apostle Paul gives the warning that if someone covets they are giving into idolatry. If someone gives into idolatry then they do not have the kingdom of God. So, as we all struggle with idolatry does that mean we do not have Christ? If we struggle with coveting does that mean we do not have Christ? How do we proceed to serve the Lord while having this propensity to struggle against his will?
