SERMON SNAPSHOT - August 31, 2014

Crucifixion is described as so excruciating that attempting to speak would be difficult at best, adding to the suffering. Yet the gospels record that Jesus spoke seven times. Today I have chosen His first "word", from Luke 23:33-34. Contrary to current attitudes reflected in our society and in many other places world-wide, forgiveness is not the first response, even to those who claim to be Christian. All too often, first reactions to mistreatment (factual or alleged) involve some measure of revenge. As we consider our Lord's other statements from the cross, we see His divinity (Son of God) and humanity (Son of Man). These "Cross Words" vividly demonstrate that even when Jesus suffered more than we can imagine, His redeeming love flowed out to others: His executioners, His mother, even the thief on the cross beside Him: "today you will be with me in Paradise." The Savior waits to see who will take discipleship seriously: "take up your own cross, and follow me."

SERMON SNAPSHOT - July 13, 2014

In praying and planning for the remaining four Sundays in July, should we expect Camp Meetings to be different from our regular Sundays? Aside from being free to be less formally dressed, we should also and always be free to worship our Lord "in spirit and in truth" (John 4:24) As for what we may expect, let's turn the question around so that the focus is on what God expects of us, as well as what we expect from God. Some may say, "Camp Meetings had their place "back in the day", but God is saying, "Behold, I make all things new." (Rev. 21:5) So let us approach His throne of grace with open hearts, voices of praise, and a willingness to surrender all we are and all we have to His gracious will.
