  • Singular Allegiance

    Contributed by Jon Lipka on Aug 17, 2014
     | 966 views

    Worrying about this life reveals distrust in God's providence for what we need. Faithfully offering God our service and love will be a treasure that will endure even into eternity.

    Jesus says, “You cannot serve both God and Money” (Mt. 6:24). We can either serve God or Money, but not both. We may either seek first the kingdom of God, or seek first the things of this world. We are slaves to God’s law, or slaves to the law of sin (cf. Rom. 7:25). But we cannot ...read more

  • Another "Jesus Saves Us From Our Storms" Sermon

    Contributed by Jon Lipka on Aug 17, 2014
     | 1,713 views

    The message of Jesus' salvation and care for us in the midst of our storms is always relevant and new. Every day, new storms threaten to overtake us, if it weren't for the might of Jesus and His careful watch over us.

    Today’s Gospel is very familiar to us all. We all love to hear of Jesus walking on the water, and Peter’s feeble attempt to walk to Jesus, from which Jesus saved him. And if you’re like me, you’re probably thinking that you know exactly what today’s sermon will be ...read more

  • An Unfamiliar Kingdom

    Contributed by Jon Lipka on Jul 27, 2014
     | 2,054 views

    While we all have preconceptions about what the kingdom of heaven is and isn't, Jesus uses parables to force us to rethink what the kingdom is.

    What is it that the Gospel message presents? I don’t simply mean today’s Gospel lesson, but the capital-G “Gospel.” The Gospel is not merely, “Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.” The proper name for them is the Gospel according to Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. The ...read more

  • God's Gift To Men

    Contributed by Jon Lipka on Jul 8, 2014
     | 960 views

    The sacred mystery of Christmas is the Incarnation, that God became flesh and made His dwelling among us. The world opposes this mystery as irrational and offensive, because it points to our fallen nature and need for a Savior.

    The Mystery of Christmas, what makes it special, is the Incarnation. A mystery is not part of our human, rational understanding. It is sublime, and part of divine revelation. Non-Christians can witness the events of Christmas—the baby in the manger, etc.—but without God’s ...read more

  • A Falling Out Series

    Contributed by Jon Lipka on Jul 8, 2014
     | 1,461 views

    Through covenants, God establishes a relationship with man that cannot be broken even when fellowship is hindered, so that when man falls away, God offers a way back.

    Today we start a sermon series “Falling in Love Again.” Lent is the prenuptial period leading up to the great wedding banquet that begins on Maundy Thursday, that is consummated on Good Friday, and is proven unbreakable on Easter Sunday. As we begin “Falling in Love ...read more

  • Believe In Love Series

    Contributed by Jon Lipka on Jul 8, 2014
    based on 1 rating
     | 1,493 views

    Loving God means accepting His love for us however it may be manifest, whether in temporal blessings or pain. Our Lord suffered in His earthly life, but was exalted to the highest place!

    Welcome, brothers and sisters in Christ, to the First Sunday in Lent. We are joining together throughout Lent in a sermon series, “Falling in Love Again.” We are preparing ourselves for the great Paschal feast, the wedding supper of the Lamb. On Ash Wednesday, we heard God’s ...read more

  • When It All Falls Apart Series

    Contributed by Jon Lipka on Jul 8, 2014
     | 1,823 views

    When the fellowship between two persons is broken, the love between them impels the Lover to offer repair in order to restore fellowship and reunite Lover and beloved.

    We continue our sermon series, “Falling in Love Again.” And I’m excited to keep learning and seeing more of how God loves us, and how we can love Him. On Ash Wednesday, we heard that there was “A Falling Out” between man and God. If there hadn’t been a ...read more

  • Always And Forever Series

    Contributed by Jon Lipka on Jul 8, 2014
     | 2,309 views

    God's love for us is eternal, preexisting our own lives. It does not change as we change but is eternal, whatever the consequences and judgment upon us will be.

    We’re drawing to a close on this season of Lent, and today we move into Holy Week, when we remember the events leading up to, and through, the crucifixion of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. This truly should be a holy week, during which we especially focus our efforts on almsgiving, prayer, ...read more

  • In Due Time

    Contributed by Jon Lipka on Jul 9, 2014
     | 2,598 views

    God presently relents in destroying evil to permit more people time to turn to Him and to not harm those who already have accepted Him.

    Back in early February, I was feeling…unusual. Something wasn’t quite right. I made an appointment to see the doctor and, without undue scrutiny he declared that I had a hernia. Having received the diagnosis…it didn’t go away. I had to make an appointment with another ...read more

  • Faith And Doubt In Between

    Contributed by Jon Lipka on Apr 29, 2014
     | 2,583 views

    During our life, from baptism and going home to the Lord, we live "in between" faith and doubt. But not all doubt is bad, and it can be used to draw us closer to God.

    What is our motto? “A believing church in a doubting world.” St. Thomas the Disciple is a church that believes in the Lord Jesus Christ. What does that—believing in Jesus Christ—mean? Isn’t that the real question? Lots of churches, real and so-called, profess some ...read more

  • Don't Miss This Opportunity

    Contributed by Jon Lipka on Dec 8, 2013
     | 1,474 views

    Secular observance of the pre-Christmas season focuses primarily on the First Coming of Christ that occurred 2,000 years ago. As Christians, our focus is on preparation for the Second Coming, which in turn readies us to remember Christmas.

    Don’t miss this opportunity. Throughout the year, we get mailings from stores telling us of some special sale or event where they will save us tons of money on whatever it is that the stores tell us we need. It seems that quantity increases tenfold or more during the Christmas shopping time. ...read more

  • Sharing God's Sure Promises

    Contributed by Jon Lipka on Jan 27, 2013
     | 1,333 views

    Eternal God, Creator of the universe, Who is beyond our knowing, has made Himself known to us, most especially in the Word made flesh, Jesus Christ. The Word of God should be reverently handled, and we should share the message it contains.

    There’s an immense universe out there: earth, moon, sun, solar system, galaxy, all the cosmos. And it all began with a Big Bang about 13.772 billion years ago, give or take 59 million years. That is scientifically observable, determinable, objective and quantifiable, insofar we can know ...read more

  • Controlling What Controls Us

    Contributed by Jon Lipka on Jan 27, 2013

     | 4,179 views

    Part of preparing to celebrate Easter is examining ourselves, whether there is anything not of the new creation in us.

  • Baptismal Covenant

    Contributed by Jon Lipka on Jan 13, 2013
     | 1,715 views

    In our baptismal covenant, we commit to belief in God, participating in the Church's life, resisting evil, sharing the Gospel, and ultimately doing all of this out of love.

    What in the world is our baptismal covenant? It starts with the Apostles Creed. Do you believe in God the Father? Do you believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God? Do you believe in God the Holy Spirit? What we believe about God is the first and foundational part of our Baptismal Covenant. It is ...read more

  • Word Of God Comes

    Contributed by Jon Lipka on Jan 13, 2013
     | 1,074 views

    John the Baptist received the word of God in the desert, and prepared the people for the coming of Christ by calling them to repentance.

    We are in the season of Advent. We prepare now for the coming of Christ at Christmas, and we recall that He will come again with power and great glory on the last day. The Incarnation was long foretold by the prophets and looked for by God’s faithful people. The secular world prepares for ...read more
