Sermons from February 2021
What’s the secret behind actually doing what Jesus did? In his showdown with Satan in the wilderness, Jesus shows us how to overcome the tests and temptations that are sure to come our way. What if giving something up was less about gritting our teeth and more about opening our hands? All through the season of Lent we’re learning how fasting from specific aspects of our lives can help us grow closer to God, and prepare us for the life…
How do we handle disappointment…with ourselves? When a notoriously sinful woman crashes a respectable dinner party, Jesus surprises everyone with his response. This is the final sermon in our “Finite Disappointment, Infinite Hope” teaching series. *Christ’s Church is a strategic partner of Grace Chapel in Lexington, MA and features the teaching of Pastor Bryan Wilkerson and the Grace Chapel Teaching Team.
We are all made for relational connection, but are feeling more lonely and disconnected than ever. How does God help us build meaningful relationships with each other, even in the midst of a pandemic? How can the promises, practices, and people of God help to bring about lasting change in our lives? *Christ’s Church is a strategic partner of Grace Chapel in Lexington, MA and features the teaching of Pastor Bryan Wilkerson and the Grace Chapel Teaching Team.
As painful as it can be, grief is a normal part of life. But grief misunderstood can bring about disastrous results. Unchecked loneliness, shame and hopelessness can lead to bitterness, a warped sense of reality or even worse. Is there a godly grief that can offer a sense of companionship and hope even when we’ve suffered a great loss? Luke 7:11-17 offers an interesting perspective on grief and shows us how God might be involved in the middle of it.
