The Lucerne Community Church Sermon Podcast is a broadcasting of our regular Sunday worship service. The primary focus for this podcast is to allow people who missed a Sunday an easy way to catch up. The secondary focus is to allow people interested in visiting an opportunity to sample what the sermons sound like. But, if you are neither of those categories but still benefiting from listening, drop us a line at our website. We'd love to hear from you. https://lucernechurch.com/about-us/contact-us/
Wisdom Comes From God
Living a godly, righteous life means knowing how to abandoned our wants, desires, and wisdom for something better: those things of God. Joseph was a man who leaned on the wisdom of God to see him through his life, in the ups and the downs. Today, we look at what does it mean to be wise.
Humble Yourself or Be Humbled
Judah's encounter with Tamar leads Judah down a path to humility. Listen as we see how humility was fully fulfilled in Christ Jesus and how we then need to be humble in our walk.
Vengeance Belongs to the Lord
As we close out the primary narrative of Jacob, we receive a recounting of how Shechem raped Jacob's daughter Dinah. Fueled by anger and desiring revenge, Simeon and Levi kill all the men of the city. Their violence highlights a deep-seated evil in all of us. Listen as we dive deeper into this topic of revenge.
[Notes: there is a moment when I say that Jacob was renamed to Esau. Jacob was renamed to Israel. This was a slip of the tongue.]
The Intercessions of God
Due to a recording glitch, this sermon has taken longer to upload because it had to be reconstructed from fragmented audio files. Our apologies for the delay.
Jacob's Questionable Character
Genesis 25, 27-29
As the namesake and forefather of the nation of Israel, Jacob is arguably one of the most significance characters in the Old Testament. Like most people, though, Jacob has a complicated past that includes mistakes. This does not hinder God's purposes and will though. Listen as we see what we can learn from these beginning chapters of Jacob's life.
The Legacy of a Father
Originally this sermon was titled, "The Sins of the Father." However, as I was preparing that morning and preaching, I realized that it is bigger than that. As we examine the life of Isaac, we are seeing the legacy of Abraham, both the good and bad. We, also, have a legacy. It is good for each of us to reflect on how we are impacting those around us.
