Sermon: Jesus calms the Storm

An old ship caught in a storm in the sea.

Introduction

The sea of Galilee is actually a vast lake (166 Km2) surrounded by a ring of mountains. It has been scientifically proven this unique geographical position is directly responsible for the storms sweeping the lake during the later hours of the day. This condition still exists to this day and the local fishermen exercise plenty of caution.

Sermon: The Parable of the Pharisee and the Publican

Two unrecognizable men praying in an old Roman Catholic Church.

Introduction

Westboro Baptist Church, followed by bomb explosions in Boston and Texas tweeted that the victims were sinners upon whom God’s wrath descended and wowed to picket funerals of the victims.

Westboro’s careless response to a national tragedy actually reminds me of the parable of the Pharisee and the tax collector. Jesus told it to some who were confident of their own righteousness and looked down on everyone else. So this is God’s message for you and me today.

Sermon: How to Prepare for Eternity?

Sermon: How to prepare for eternity Ecclesiastes 3:11

Introduction

The largest ‘Pyramid’ in Egypt belongs to Khufu, an Egyptian Pharaoh. Studies have revealed it took around 6700 highly skilled men (let alone the slaves) and 20 years of labor to build. Why did Khufu put such a huge effort into building himself a tomb? The Egyptians believed in life after death so much that they made preparations while they were still alive. You see, God had placed eternity in their hearts.

Sermon: Three Challenges for Good Friday

A lonely cross on a mountain top.

Introduction

Jesus had breathed his last and someone had to arrange for his burial. All the disciples but John were in hiding. His mother was grieving and there’s no evidence Jesus’ brothers and sisters were in town. The Roman law did not permit burying criminals accused of treason either and no one dared violate the Roman law.

Easter Sermon: The Journey to Emmaus

Supper at Emmaus by Caravaggio

Introduction

The death of Jesus Christ actually shattered the hopes and dreams of his disciples. Though the resurrection had already taken place they were so affected by what happened three days ago they felt helpless, frustrated, disappointed, discouraged, and left behind. It is at a time like this that Jesus met two of them on their way to Emmaus.

New Year Sermon 2013: The gifts of the Wise Men

Christmas gifts wrapped in silver-colored wrapping paper kept against a teal blue backdrop.

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.

Read Matthew 2:1-12

Sermon: How to start life all over again in the Year 2013?

Person holding a firework.

Introduction

It’s a well-known fact that at the end of a year many people attempt to start life all over again. Unfortunately, most of them at the end of another whole year find themselves right where they were. Tonight even as we step into a brand new year I decided to share with you about another man who found himself in the same situation. If you have been trying to start over but weren’t successful chances are high that you have been repeating the mistakes he made. By the way, the man is known to us as Jacob. These are the mistakes he made and how he overcame them.

Christmas sermon 2012: A Season called Christmas

The Father, Mother, and the Daughter decorate a Christmas Tree.

Introduction

Luke’s narration of Jesus’ dedication in the temple (Luke 2:25-38) isn’t exclusively about Jesus’ birth and there are many other passages one can use for preaching a Christmas sermon. Still, I decided to preach from this passage because in the words of Simeon and Anna recorded in it, we discover God’s true purpose for the season we call Christmas in a nutshell. We discover that:
