Sermons on Grace

2 Thessalonians 1 from November 3, 2019

In the first chapter of this letter, Paul, Silvanus, and Timothy talk about how they must thank God for the growing love and faithfulness of the church in Thessalonica, and how they are confident that when Christ returns, their persecutors will be cleared out, and they will have a clear path to God.

Hebrews 12:18-29 from August 25, 2019

We shift, with Hebrews, from faith to holiness. Coming to recognize that Christ is the perfecter of our life and faith, we discuss our call to respond to the sanctifying work of Christ by allowing ourselves to be made holy.

Revelation 22.12-21 from June 2nd, 2019

We come to the conclusion of Revelation (and the conclusion of the canon!), and we find that ultimately, this is a book of hope. We are invited to “come” and hear the good news of the gospel. Come and leave this world behind, trusting that the next one is coming. Indeed, it is here.

Philippians 3:4b-14 from April 7, 2019

Paul tells us that despite being the epitome of an honorable person, a good Jew, he “counts it all as loss” because of Christ. What does it mean to count it all as loss? We find that only in giving up our accomplishments do they have any value at all.
