Sermons on Union With Christ

Rooted

On Sunday mornings we have slowly been making our way through Paul’s letter to the church at Colossae. Our teaching theme, you may remember, this year is “Rooted” - learning to live from our union with Christ. And you will perhaps, at least I hope, have begun to see that’s actually a pretty good summary of the central concern of the letter of Paul to the Colossians. He...

Rooted

Pilots talk about the three axes of flight. So a plane, an airplane has three axes along which it must travel. There's roll - so the plane can move that way (front to back). There's pitch - so it can move that way (side to side). And there's yaw - so it can move that way (vertical). And a pilot needs to pay attention to the instruments in...

Rooted

One of the ways we are going to do that on Sunday mornings is by considering together the message of the apostle Paul as he wrote to the Colossians; the short letter of Paul to the Colossians. So we’ll be pausing in our on-going studies in Mark’s gospel. We’ll come back to it again, God willing, in the new year, and we’ll be focusing beginning today on Colossians...

And I’m sure many of us could speak of the ways in which Romans chapter 8 has been a blessing and a help to us in our own lives and in our walk in faith. I think we could say that these verses, these truths here, were significant in Paul’s life as well. I think we can say that because in Romans chapter 7, what came just before...

Os Guinness, wonderful Christian author, told a story I heard once about a Japanese haiku poet. And I have to admit that’s the first time I’ve probably ever read one of those things! But this guy’s name was Issa; I can’t pronounce his first name. But this poet had a tragic life. His mother died when he was young and he lived in the 17th  century or so...

Jim Carrey, hilarious actor. One thing I’ve enjoyed about him over the past few years is he’s made some pretty serious films and he won some awards for those films. And he was called upon in 2015 to give a speech at the Golden Globes. And when he walks on stage, he’s just kind of funny, so these A-listers in Hollywood, he just walked out and they all...

Back in 1999, my dad had to have some serious heart surgery. And one of my great memories growing up with my dad was grilling steaks with him and eating ribs. That all went away! After heart surgery, he had drastic changes to his diet. But I've been interested in that ever since, and I read a study recently from Dr. Edward Miller, who is the CEO and...

Well as a child of the 1980s – it’s been a while since we’ve had an 80s reference, so que is up! As a child of the 1980s, the big movie when I was growing up was Back to the Future starring Michael J. Fox and he played the Marty McFly character. So if you’ve ever seen the movie, Marty McFly is the cool guy. His dad is...

1 John

We’re continuing to work our way through this book and the two small letters of 2nd and 3rd John that follow it. The last time we were to together we said that John in this book shows us how the Christian life expresses itself doctrinally, relationally, and morally. That is, how it expresses itself in the truth that we believe, in the love that we show...
