New year sermon 2013: The gifts of the wise men

New year sermon: The gifts of the wise men Matthew 2:1-12

Introduction

The arrival of the wise men wasn’t a part of the story of Jesus’ birth at all. They actually came in a time when the miracle of Jesus’ birth had long since worn off – while Mary and Joseph were caught in the busyness of life and parenting. In a time like this the gifts once again reminded them of three important truths God had told them in the beginning. Today even as the Christmas season is far behind us and we are about to get caught in the busyness of the new year God wants to remind us of those three truths.

How to start life over again in year 2013?

Introduction

Sermon: Lazarus and the rich man

Lazarus and the rich man

Introduction

Some think this parable was intended for unbelievers. Actually the opposite is true. In it Jesus targeted the Pharisees, religious authority figures of the Jewish world who indulged in wrong doing while they had plenty of opportunity to do what is right and good.

The interpretation of the parable is even God’s people will be judged if they don’t do what is good and right when the opportunity is given. In today’s sermon I am going to discuss this warning and its implications in detail.

Sermon: Principles of giving

Principles of giving

Introduction

Lately I have been thinking very much about the act of giving and studying what the Bible says about it. During these times the Holy Spirit of God brought a couple of truths to my attention. In today’s sermon I intend to share three truths which I believe to be very important for any Christian who wishes to give for the glory of God.
