A New Hope

I don’t know what happened last year but looking back at the website archives reminded me that I did not get to preach on the first Sunday of Advent back in 2019. I had a sermon prepared and wrote up a blog post but there must have been severe weather or a lot of sickness or something that caused us to call off church service. So here we go, “A New Hope” the first of four Advent sermons that’s been one year in the making.

Keeping the Weeks of Advent

The Advent season has been a regular part of our worship service for a few years. It is a season of preparation that help us focus on the tings that are most important. If you are unfamiliar with Advent this post should be helpful. The dates for the Advent Sundays this year, 2020, are as follows:

November 29 – Hope

December 6 – Faith

December 13 – Joy

December 20 – Peace

We will read passages of scripture, sing hymns and hear sermons based on these themes each week as well as light the corresponding candles of the Advent wreath. Jesus is the light of the world and we looking forward to celebrating that together in worship. We will also take communion on November 29th so a little something extra that will go along nicely with our focus on hope and prophecy.

The Day of the Lord

Remember the words of the prophets and the teachings of the Apostles when scoffers ask “when is the Lord returning? Things continue as they always have.” A thousands years is like a day to the Lord. He is not slack concerning his promises and the Day of the Lord will come.

What to Do About False Teachers

Peter warned that false prophets had come before and false teachers would arise in the future. As we finish 2nd Peter 2 we will see what we are to do about that.

Hebrews Bible Study

I don’t know how much crossover there is between this church website and my blog The Master’s Table. I’d like to share with this audience a project I’ve been working on over there for the past several weeks. At The Master’s Table we’ve been working through the Book of Hebrews, one chapter each week. Read each chapter first, either from your own Bible and then keep it open to that page for reference, or use the link provided at the top of each post to Bible Gateway. My translation of choice is the ESV, English Standard Version, but Bible Gateway has many English translations (and many other languages) available. I sometimes refer to the working of other translation, such as the King James, just like I do when preaching.

Eyewitnesses vs. False Prophets

Peter warned early Christians that false prophets had always been around and that false teachers would rise up in the future. Our faith is not in man-made myths or fables but the eyewitness accounts of the resurrected Lord and Savior.

Reminders

Going to work through a series on 2nd Peter before Thanksgiving and Advent. Here’s a few reminders he left believers of things we need to add to faithfulness. It’s all stuff believers know but it never hurts to be reminded.

Shepherd the Flock

From 1st Peter 5, Peter has some words of instruction and encouragement for pastors and for all believers everywhere. We are all to follow the examples set by Christ and at the same time be a good example for others.

In Our Right Mind

Peter instructs believers in 1st Peter 1 to “gird up the loins” of our minds. It’s about being prepared for spiritual warfare and it begins not with working out or putting on armor but by being in the right frame of mind. In 1st Peter 4 he tells us to have to the mind as Christ when it comes to suffering, very similar to the Apostle Paul in Philippians 2. It all starts with being right minded.

A Living Stone and a Holy People

“The stone the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone.” He is precious in God’s eyes and chosen; but you can’t build anything with just one stone.
