Sermon: Joseph the Father after God’s own Heart

Sermon: Joseph the Father after God’s own heart

Introduction

This Father’s Day I want us to consider the life of Joseph. Although we meet many noteworthy fathers in the Bible, only Joseph was given the privilege of being the father to the only child the Bible calls holy. Scriptures don’t talk about Joseph much. But I noted three characteristics that convinced me Joseph was a “Father after God’s own heart.” Join me tonight to find out these characteristics and how we can become fathers worthy of being called the same.

Christmas Sermon 2015: God calls Mary

Christmas sermon 2015: God calls Mary

Introduction

In the ancient world the word “calling” was of great significance. In those days the word was used to refer to the act of being summoned by the King. Likewise God also has called or summoned us to his presence. In fact the Greek word for church (ekklésia) means called out from the world and to God. In today’s message we will look at three areas in the call of God, from another famous passage. It’s none other than the Angelic visit to Mary. (We have a sermon on Joseph (Jesus’ Guardian Father also. See it here.)

Sermon Notes: The Parable of the Sower

Sermon Notes: The Parable of the Sower

Introduction

I am fully aware that I have preached to you from the Parable of the Sower before but wanted to share the same today for a very good reason. As your Pastor, I am responsible for your personal spiritual growth. You know, sometimes we get complacent in our Christian walk which hinders our spiritual growth. When that happens I have to stir your nest and remind you to start moving forward again. So, I am going to stir your nest tonight. Now, as I told you the last time I preached from this passage, Jesus spoke about four different groups of people that are in the Church.

Introduction

St. Valentine’s is a day in which the church talks a lot about God’s love for man. This Valentine’s however I want to talk about how we are supposed to love God and others. Here in the passage, I have chosen to preach from today a Lawyer (not an ordinary Jew) who intended to find fault with Jesus’ teachings asks him a question. It’s not a foolish question at all, because the Jews quite commonly drew distinctions among the laws of Scripture – great and small, light and heavy. Jesus’ answer was unexpected yet biblical and logical. What does this commandment mean?

Sermon: Young Jesus is Lost and Found

Sermon: Young Jesus is lost and found

Introduction

In the movie “Home Alone” the McCallister family, in the confusion and rush to board their flight on time, leaves little Kevin at home and do not know until they are already airborne. A similar thing happened almost 2000 years ago and unlike in the movie, this was for real. The Bible says that Mary and Joseph left Jesus behind on their return trip from Jerusalem. There are three important truths about God’s presence we can learn from this incident.
