‘Reach, Build, Send’ Sermon Series || We exist to reach people with the gospel, build them as the church, and send them into the world for the glory of God.

2 Corinthians 3-4 (Unveiled) Series || As our Unveiled series draws to a close we receive a call from Paul at the end of 2 Corinthians 4 to persevere. In verses 13-18 we find 6 promises as to why we should not lose heart in this life, beginning with the reminder that we are not alone.

2 Corinthians 4:7-12 || Jars of Clay

2 Corinthians 3-4 (Unveiled) Series || The Christians in Corinth were being swayed by false teachers proclaiming a false gospel of prosperity with no suffering. But, as Charles Spurgeon would say years later, “Mark then, Christian, Jesus does not suffer so as to exclude your suffering. He bears a cross, not that you may escape it, but that you may endure it. Christ exempts you from sin, but not from sorrow. Remember that, and expect to suffer.” In 2 Corinthians 4:7-12, Paul reminds the...

2 Corinthians 3-4 (Unveiled) Series || Paul starts chapter 4 reminding us of God’s mercy and the confidence we have because of this New Covenant. In these first 6 verses Paul reminds us that Satan, the ‘god of this world’, blinds the minds of others. But we proclaim the gospel of Jesus, and He shines light into the darkness.

2 Corinthians 3:14-18 || Greater Freedom

More
2 Corinthians 3-4 (Unveiled) Series || Many times we don’t realize what we don’t see until we get a glimpse of what we are missing. In this message we look at what happens when the veil is removed. Christ is the one who removes the veil, and when we turn our eyes towards Him we can behold God’s glory. And this freedom to behold Him transforms us into His image.

2 Corinthians 3:6-11, 17-18

More
2 Corinthians 3-4 (Unveiled) Series || As seen in these verses, the Corinthians were giving in to the temptation to turn to the law of Moses as their savior. As 21st century Americans, it can be hard for us to relate to this temptation. But though we may not be tempted to run back to the law of Moses, we too have functional saviors we are tempted to turn to. In this sermon, we address 4 common saviors we all are tempted to run to, and we look at Paul's words about how the New Covenant is far...

2 Corinthians 3:4-5, 12-13 || Greater Confidence

2 Corinthians 3-4 (Unveiled) Series || What gave Paul confidence and boldness in his ministry? The same thing that lead St. Patrick to return to Ireland, the land where he formerly lived as a slave, to proclaim the gospel: the New Covenant in Christ. In 2 Corinthians 3:4-5, 12-13 we see Paul speak of a greater confidence, greater sufficiency, and greater hope that produces boldness produced through this New Covenant.

2 Corinthians 3:1-3 || Greater Change

More
2 Corinthians 3-4 (Unveiled) Series || Following our Exodus series, we examine two chapters from a letter the Apostle Paul wrote to the church in Corinth roughly 1500 years after the Exodus. 2 Corinthians 3 and 4 provide a helpful reflection on Moses and the Old Covenant demonstrating how Christ came to illuminate the dim image of God available to ancient Israel. In contrast to the flashy preachers that had begun to sway the Corinthians from their commitment to Paul’s gospel, Paul takes us...

Exodus 40 || He Reveals His Glory

3/3/2019
More
Exodus (The God Who Renews) Series || In chapter 40 of Exodus we see Moses and Israel fully obey God’s command to build the tabernacle and consecrate the priests, followed by the climatic moment where God comes down and fills it with His glory. But as glorious as this moment was, we’re reminded the work isn’t finished. This moment ultimately points to a greater moment in our world’s history. The moment Christ came down and dwelt amongst us. The tabernacle, the priests, and even the whole of...

Exodus 35-39 || He Delights in Obedience

2/24/2019
More
Exodus (The God Who Renews) Series || In Exodus 35-39 we see the Israelites doing God honoring work, and we are reminded that Israel’s work didn’t end at the moment of their salvation from Egypt. Rather than working for Pharaoh, Israel now works for God. In these 5 chapters we see 4 answers to the question ‘How do we approach work in a way that delights the Lord?’

Exodus (The God Who Renews) Series || Following Israel’s worship of the golden calf in 32 we see in chapters 33 and 34 further consequences for their actions. But in addition to the justice we see, we also see God’s mercy. In chapter 34 God declares He is both merciful and just. So how can God be equally both of these, and what does that mean for us?

Exodus 32 || He Made Us to Worship

2/10/2019
More
Exodus (The God Who Renews) Series || In Exodus 32 Moses hasn't returned and the Israelites get scared. So the obvious thing to do is make a golden statue of a cow and worship it. Wait, what!? How did the Israelites reach a point where they were convinced this was the right thing to do? Psalm 106 tells us it's because 'they forgot God'. This chapter should serve as a warning to us of what will happen when we forget God and direct our worship towards other things.

Exodus 28-31 || He Equips Us to Serve

2/3/2019
More
Exodus (The God Who Renews) Series || Why must the priestly robes, the tabernacle, and all its contents be so detailed and spectacular? In Ex. 28:1 God tells us its for glory and beauty. God makes beauty because it points us to the Creator. In these chapters we see this truth, and the truth that God equips His people to serve and add to the beauty.

Exodus 25-27 || He Comes Near To Us

1/28/2019
More
Exodus (The God Who Renews) Series || n Exodus chapters 25 through 27 we are reminded of 3 truths. First, God, though He is all powerful, is also personal and it delights Him to dwell amongst His people. Second, God cares about how He is worshipped, which we see in the careful and detailed instructions He provides on how to build the tabernacle. And thirdly, God will always provide us with what is needed in order to fulfill His commands. Just as He provided the Israelites with the plans and...

Exodus 23:20-24:18 || He Promises Us a Future

1/20/2019
More
Exodus (The God Who Renews) Series || In these 2 chapters God gives the promises of both victory and relationship to Israel. As we look at these promises we are reminded that His promises are one of the greatest weapons we can wield against the enemy, but also just as this covenant made required death, if we abandon the Lord it will lead to death.

Exodus 20:1-23:19 || He Shows Us The Way

1/13/2019
More
Exodus (The God Who Renews) Series || In Exodus chapters 20 through 23 God gives the Israelites the 10 commandments, as well as many other commands. As we study these chapters we see that the giving of the Law is a gift, and is used to guide and guard the Israelites. Ultimately though, we see that the Law, both for Israel and us, points us to Christ. As the old Puritan poem goes: ‘Run, John, run, the law commands But gives us neither feet nor hands, Far better news the gospel brings: It bids...

Exodus 19 || He Calls us to be Holy

Exodus (The God Who Renews) Series || In Exodus 3 God told Moses to return to Mt. Sinai to worship Him after He rescued the Israelites from Egypt. In Exodus 19 we find the Israelites trembling at the foot of the mountain as the LORD descended on it. Here in this chapter, and the second part of our Exodus series, we are reminded that God didn’t simply rescue Israel from slavery. He rescued them so that He might renew them. God rescues and redeems His people so that we can be holy as He is...
