Christ The Crusader Against Social Injustice

Luke 2, 14, 17, 19. Guest speaker Vicki Kardos speaks about Jesus’ acts of compassion and mercy towards the poor, unclean, “sinners” and socially outcast. As followers of Jesus we are called to the same mission and must beware of neglecting or shutting people out because of our judgements and lack of compassion.

Advent in Isaiah: The Lord has Laid on Him the Iniquity of Us All

Isaiah 53, Revelation 12. Dale Kuehne draws upon Isaiah’s suffering servant prophecy to remind us that we have all gone astray. It was for our sin that Jesus came into this world to die for our redemption. We did not deserve this act of love, and so we must extend this same grace to all of mankind, even those who we consider worse sinners than ourselves.

Advent in Isaiah: Come, All You Who are Thirsty

Isaiah 30 and 55. Dale Kuehne asks us to consider the areas of our lives where we might be seeking provision, deliverance, guidance and satisfaction apart from God. We’ll always end up disappointed by those “alliances” and idols, but God invites us to come be satisfied in Him, for eternity, free of charge.

God of Wrath or God of Love? Part 2

Portraying God as love while diminishing or completely denying His judgment of sin has been a problem in both ancient heresies as well as some 21st century sermons. Jesse Andreasen explores several passages that reveal God’s incredible love, patience, and forgiveness while upholding His holiness and justice.

Forgiveness

Luke 7. Guest speaker Derrick Avery explores Jesus’ encounter with the sinful woman. We all need God’s forgiveness and we all need to offer that same kind of forgiveness to others.
