    Contributed by Clair Sauer on Aug 7, 2017
    based on 1 rating
     | 1,976 views

    A sermon about the prophetess Huldah.

    In order to understand the story of Huldah, we have to understand the story of Israel at this point in their history. You see, we are now long past the “golden days” of King David’s reign and King Solomon after him. The twelve tribes have been divided into two different kingdoms; ten of the tribes ...read more

    A sermon about Eve: the first woman, the Fall, and the life-giving gift of God's grace.

    For the first chapter and a half of the Bible. We see God busy at work; creating the place we call Earth and all that is a part of it. And at every step of the way, God declares his creation “good.” Then it all changes. Halfway through chapter 2, God is busy helping the human, ...read more

  • A Princess To All The World Series

     | 2,080 views

    Sarai/Sarah faced a lot of hardships in her life with Abram/Abraham. Sometimes he dealt with things in her own way and suffered the consequences. But in the end, her faith in God brought her the one thing she desired the most, a son.

    Four thousand years ago, barrenness was the ultimate disgrace; it was seen as a sign of divine disfavor. If you don’t have children, it’s because God’s got something against you. Period. A woman who couldn’t conceive suffered not only lack of approval, but also the threat of ...read more

    As disciples of Christ, we have an obligation to

    Let’s talk about this woman, Esther. And I actually want to start today, at the end of her story. Were any of you able to read through Esther this week? If so, then you know that the ending of the book seems a bit strange. Here’s how it goes, “Certainly, Mordecai the Jew was ...read more

  • That's Gonna Leave A Mark! Series

    Contributed by Clair Sauer on Aug 2, 2017
     | 3,585 views

    The story of Deborah remind us that the key to winning the victory over struggles in our lives is to listen to God and heed what God says.

    We come this morning to one example of what I consider to be the most difficult part of the Bible to understand. So I’m just going to name it for what it is, right up front. This scene of Deborah calling members of the Israelite tribes into battle is just one story among many of the seemingly ...read more

  • Life-Giving Companions Series

    Contributed by Clair Sauer on Aug 2, 2017
     | 2,232 views

    When we are faithful to God, God will be faithful to us, and amazing things will happen!

    Many of us are quite familiar with the story of Job. In the Bible, Job is the guy God chooses to prove to Satan the faithfulness of God’s followers. The result is that God repeatedly “tests” Job, making his life extremely difficult, in order to show Satan how he remains faithful ...read more

  • Dealing With Temptation

     | 3,440 views

    As we see in Jesus' own temptation, the greatest key to dealing with our temptations is staying focused on the God of blessings and his call upon our lives.

    Back in late November, one of the candidates newly elected to public office wrote a reflection that circulated around social media. I want to share with you a portion of this politician’s thoughts. Here’s an excerpt: “I had concentrated fully on my campaign. Ever since my party ...read more

  • Seeing And Hearing

    Contributed by Clair Sauer on Feb 11, 2015
     | 2,052 views

    In Jesus' transfiguration, we learn that listening to God (no matter what form that may take) marks a life of faith that can navigate uncertainty when our vision is clouded over.

    “I’ll believe it when I see it!” How many times have you said that in your life? Or heard it? So much of how we believe and operate is based on our ability to see tangible evidence. The whole field of science and medicine is all about our desire to have proof that explains ...read more

  • Staying Connected

    based on 2 ratings
     | 3,521 views

    In the midst of our busy lives and our ministry in service to Christ, it is not only necessary, but imperative that we remain connected with God through prayer.

    A few years ago, “The Obstacles to Growth Survey” collected data from over 20,000 Christians around the world aged 15 to 88. The survey found that, on average, more than 4 in 10 Christians around the world say they “often” or “always” rush from task to task. ...read more

  • The Power Of Authority

    Contributed by Clair Sauer on Jan 29, 2015
     | 3,822 views

    Christ came to heal and to save people, and he was able to do so because of the power of God in him, which he used with unquestionable authority. Christ gives the same power to his disciples, how can we work in the world with authority to heal and to save?

    Several years ago, there was a terrible ferry accident in the Mediterranean Sea. You may have heard about it. This boat, loaded with cars and vacationers, failed to shut its doors properly, and before too long, the water was pouring in. Needless to say, the boat began to sink and panic set in. ...read more

  • Leaving It All

    Contributed by Clair Sauer on Jan 21, 2015
     | 3,560 views

    Our role as disciples of Christ requires that we leave everything behind and put Christ first in our lives. It is easy for us to practice Christian discipleship when it is convenient for us, but Christ calls us to much more.

    I want us to get a sense of the experience of these fishermen on the day Jesus walked by the Sea of Galilee and summoned them to follow him. So we are going to take a minute and use our imaginations. So, however you use your imagination best, prepare yourself to do that now; whether it’s ...read more

  • From Sketicism To Discipleship

    Contributed by Clair Sauer on Jan 15, 2015
     | 3,455 views

    For each of us, like Nathanael, our movement to full discipleship in Jesus Christ takes us through periods of skepticism and doubt, but if we look for the signs and work of Christ, we will never be empty of words to share as disciples of Christ!

    I suspect that Nathanael wasn’t the first person who had some doubts about Jesus the Christ. And he certainly wasn’t the last. We have plenty of records of people who, throughout history, have questioned the validity of Jesus’ role as Messiah. But even among people of faith, there ...read more

  • So Now What?

    Contributed by Clair Sauer on Jan 2, 2015
     | 995 views

    The wise men provide for us an amazing example of true faith and genuine worship.

    There are two kinds of people in this world, right? The “haves” and the “have-nots.” Or wait; is it the jocks and the nerds? Of course, there are the men and the women, and Republicans and Democrats. And we have the religious and the non-religious. I guess when it comes down ...read more

  • The Angels' Chorus Series

    Contributed by Clair Sauer on Dec 23, 2014
     | 1,046 views

    The angels share "good news" with the lowly shepherds near Bethlehem, and Christ's birth continues to be good news for all people everywhere!

    Perhaps some of you have seen that wonderful play, The Greatest Christmas Pageant Ever. In the play, the appropriately named Herdman family, full of rowdy children, hi-jack a children’s Christmas pageant, taking all the choice roles by intimidation and force. Needless to say, those Herdman ...read more

  • Simeon's Song Series

    based on 2 ratings
     | 2,828 views

    As Mary & Joseph bring Jesus to the Temple, it provides an opportunity for the aged priest Simeon to further reveal the significance of the baby Jesus--the fulfillment of God's promises & our hopes & dreams, the source of rest & peace for our souls.

    As you all know, we have spent weeks building up to Christmas and our celebration of Christ’s birth. And such anticipation is appropriate, it takes much preparation to welcome a new baby…if there’s anyone who knows that right now, it’s me! But I do hope that our Advent time ...read more
