  • Living Because Of God's Love

    Contributed by Richard Schwedes on Mar 14, 2018
    based on 1 rating

    A sermon in the person of Niccodemus, that discusses God's focus is His love for all people and how this changes how Niccodemus sees himself and God, and how Niccodemus relates to others

    Today’s sermon has been prepared by Pastor Richard Schwedes of the St Paul's Lutheran Church Sydney for us. It is based on the Gospel reading of John 3:14-21. If you ever thought you were confident that you know everything that you need to know about God, then I have a story for you. My more

  • What's The Truth

    Contributed by Kevin Ruffcorn on Mar 13, 2018

    Jesus receives the title, “King of the Jews,” but he declares that his kingdom is not of this world and it is a kingdom of truth.. If it is not of this world, then where is it? And, where can we find the truth? Is God’s kingdom confined to heaven, or does

    INTRODUCTION Pilate’s question, “What is Truth?” was a hotly debated question centuries before he took his first breath and for millennia after he took his last. With so many religious purveyors of truth, we have come to question the reality of absolute truth. Relative truth is currently more

  • From Words To Actions

    Contributed by Kevin Ruffcorn on Mar 13, 2018

    It is one thing for Jesus to say that he loves his disciples, but he puts these words into action when he washes their feet. At the same time, Jesus demonstrates to us that love needs to go beyond words and is seen in service.

    INTRODUCTION Love is in the air—or at least the airwaves. A majority of songs on the stations that I listen to are songs about love. I suspect that the same can be said about the songs and stations to which you listen. Love is a BIG force in our lives, yet as one song suggests, “There’s just too more

  • Arise, Shine: Radiate

    Contributed by Jonathan Meyer on Mar 5, 2018

    "Arise, Shine" was our Epiphany 2018 Series. This was the final installment (Transfiguration Sunday). In short, as Christ radiantly revealed His glory to the disciples, we radiate the light, the life, and the love of Jesus to all the world.

    The whole week had been one big mountaintop experience for us all. It was July, 2008, and there were about 30 of us—both high school youth and adults from Redeemer and Immanuel Lutheran Churches from my hometown of Seymour, Indiana. We had been on a servant event trip all week at Lutheran more

  • God's Kingdom Comes

    Contributed by Jonathan Meyer on Mar 5, 2018

    A look at the 2nd Petition of the Lord's Prayer. This is part of our Sunday Lenten Sermon Series: The Lord's Prayer & Passion. (Note: series title is from CPH, but we hardly use any of the the sermon material they offer) Readings from 3rd Sunday in Lent.

    I want you to think back—back to your childhood. And there was a game that I am certain you’ve all played. And, even if you didn't play as a child, you probably played with your kids or grandkids. Hide and seek! You remember that game, right? When you’re the one who’s “IT,” you cover your more

  • Arise, Shine: Out Of The Darkness

    Contributed by Jonathan Meyer on Mar 5, 2018

    "Arise, Shine" was our Epiphany 2018 Series. This was the second installment. In short, God calls us out of our darkness, no matter where we've been.

    Three months and ten days. Assuming our little baby arrives on her due date—which she won’t—but assuming she does, that’s how long my wife and I have left of getting a full night’s sleep every night. Three months and ten days. But, come April 24—give or take a few days—we’ll be back to the more

  • Walking In The Light

    Contributed by Kevin Ruffcorn on Feb 12, 2018

    Jesus is the Light of the World. He brings light and sight into the life of a man born blind and in a similar manner brings light into our lives and enables us to see life through the eyes of faith.

    INTRODUCTION Today is Transfiguration Sunday. It is the Sunday between Epiphany, when Jesus reveals himself to us and Lent, which is a penitential time of preparation before Easter. Usually the text for the day leads up the mountain where Jesus is transfigured before his disciples and his more

  • Recalulating Jesus Series

    Contributed by Clarence Eisberg on Jan 18, 2018

    This sermon is based on the words of Jesus in Mark 1 "repent" and is part of a sermon series based on the "Case For Christ" book. Evidence and message. Some quotes from sermon by Ken Klaas and Keep on Believing

    In Jesus Holy Name January 21, 2018 Text: Mark 1:14 Epiphany III Redeemer Recalculating Jesus? Who is Jesus? That is the question that must be answered if you have heard his name. Who is Jesus? That was the question in the first century when he lived. It is still valid more

  • Born To Die, Born To Give Life

    Contributed by Jonathan Meyer on Dec 27, 2017

    Most nativity scenes portray a cute scene of a happy little family, & friendly visitors. That's the way we like to think of it, but it's hardly realistic. When we pause at the manger with this image, we maybe forget that this infant was born to die.

    Every year, at about this time, my dad has this tradition of getting out old home movies. A lot of families have a tradition of watching their favorite Christmas movie: “Home Alone,” or “Elf,” or “How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” or “It’s a Wonderful Life,” or what have you. But for my dad, he more

  • Good News.... Peace For Your Soul

    Contributed by Clarence Eisberg on Dec 15, 2017

    The sermon is about the "Peace" offered by faith in Jesus verses the fear that comes into our daily lives. What is the "peace" the angels offered the shepherds at Bethlehem? (some quotes from Max Lucado in "Fearless" Includes a story about "Noel"

  • In The World

    Contributed by Jonathan Meyer on Dec 13, 2017

    Jesus, the true light, came into the world--but no one recognized Him for who He truly was, nor was He received. But for all who have received Him, we now go out as Lights in His name, that others would recognize Jesus in us and receive Him who is coming!

    In 1929, The Saturday Evening Post ran an article on Albert Einstein. It was an interview with this brilliant man. And in that interview, he said this: “As a child I received instruction both in the Bible and in the Talmud. I am a Jew,” he said, “but I am enthralled by the luminous figure of the more

  • Be The Church: Love Your Neighbor, Love Your King

    Contributed by Jonathan Meyer on Dec 11, 2017

    It's the Last Sunday of the Church Year/Christ the King Sunday. Jesus speaks of separating the sheep & goats on the last day. The question on people's minds: Am I a sheep or a goat? (From our lectionary-based series for November 2017, "BE the Church.")

    The Word of God that engages us today—on this Christ the King Sunday—is our Gospel read-ing, from Matthew 25. We’ve been looking at this chapter for a couple of weeks. And now we get to this section: the separation of the sheep and the goats. And it’s a difficult text. Not difficult to understand, more

  • A Man Named John

    Contributed by Jonathan Meyer on Dec 11, 2017

    This Advent sermon looks at John the Baptist: The Man, The Mission, & The Message. God unexpectedly worked through John. He now chooses to work through us as witnesses. (Based loosely on "The Word Became Flesh" Advent series from Concordia Seminary, STL.)

    Forensic scientists in England analyzed the venerated remains from a certain grave, a few years ago. The corpse of the individual being observed was male. He was no more than five feet tall, and he had a broken nose. He lived in the 4th Century AD. And, despite being dug up in Italy, he was more

  • Its Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

    Contributed by Nickolas Kooi on Dec 7, 2017

    John the Baptist helps us get ready for Advent. He points us to baptism, repentance, and the Mighty One, Jesus Christ. This sermon looks at the text and then shifts into an application with two illustrations.

    To borrow the words of Meredith Wilson: “It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas, everywhere you go.” Thanksgiving is done and the leftovers are consumed. Black Friday is over. Cyber Monday and Cyber week are finished. This week, we had our first real taste of winter and Minnesota weather more

  • Antidote Series

    Contributed by Kevin Ruffcorn on Dec 4, 2017

    As the Israelites enter Canaan, God warns them not to be so lost in their abundance that they forget that it is God who gives it to them.

    Deuteronomy 8:7-18 “Antidote” INTRODUCTION For those of us who have worked hard and put in long hours, it is easy to look at our accomplishments and our possessions and pat ourselves on the back. We discover, when we do so however, that our self-centered pride rears its ugly head and we more
