A collection of sermons from Central Church that reflect our great need for Christ and Christ's great love for us

    Romans 14

    Romans 14

    Paul gives a strong urging that we, as a body of Christ, are to uphold unity. How can that be done? By not passing judgment on one another, not living for ourselves, and not doing things that cause others to stumble. Pastor Jon uses the Latin word "adiaphora," meaning that we are not to create a divide with others on matters that are not divisive, but holding fast to building unity.

    Easter

    Easter

    Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?" Pastor Jon challenges us with the same question that Jesus asks Martha at the death of Lazarus, reading the resurrection account from John 20.

    Romans 12

    Romans 12

    Romans 12 gives clear instruction on how we are to live as Christians in verses 9-21: to love what is genuine, to honor others, to rejoice with those who rejoice, and to mourn with those who mourn. Ultimately, however, how are we to live? How Paul instructs in verse 1: to offer our bodies as a living sacrifice. Jac Munson breaks this passage into 3 main points: it challenges our lifestyles, our minds, and our lives.

    Romans 11

    Paul addresses a big topic here, dealing with the Israelites and their belonging to the body of Christ. Because they were disobedient, have they lost their favor with God? Even bigger than that, who is salvation really offered to? Pastor Jon breaks down Romans 11, talking about the Gentiles being grafted in and Israel's salvation.

    Romans 10

    Romans 10

    In Romans 10, Paul strongly conveys to the audience that he's writing to his desire for them to be saved, to know the gospel, and to have eternal life. Do we have the same desire for the people we know? To summarize the passage, Pastor Jon gives us one simple question: do we long for others to know about the eternal life that is obtained through Jesus Christ?

    Romans 9

    Romans 9

    Romans 9 is one of the most challenging, difficult-to-understand passages in the entire book. Paul talks about God's sovereign choice, drawing comparisons from Abraham's descendants, the Israelites, and even Pharaoh. Pastor Jon looks at this passage through the lens of three main points: Paul's anguish, God's sovereignty, and living by faith.
