SuperMe? Or SuperThankful?

by

Do you know a SuperMommy? SuperMan? A SuperChristian? Those are the type of people we tend to only see their amazing outcomes and from that can grow an unhealthy desire to be someone or something we were not created to be. As we focus on gratitude this season, may I suggest that in order to […]

Breaking the Mold

by

Conservative Christians seldom think of Jesus as a radical. But Matthew in his gospel describes Jesus the Messiah as dramatically changing our human understanding of who God is and what His kingdom is like. Jesus, in the sermon on the mount, assured the people of that time and ours that He had not come to […]

Birdwatchers

by

Do you know any birdwatchers? Have you ever wondered what motivates them to get up early, purchase expensive binoculars and bird books, make lists, talk about migration patterns, weather, and whether nests are being occupied on time? I have never been a birdwatcher. But I wonder why Jesus suggested 2000 years ago that I should […]

2nd Helpings

by

“With the world’s population now at 7.7 billion, any discussions about our church evangelizing the world as condition for Jesus’ return is plainly unrealistic, except if we say it as self-aggrandizement, because there are no measurable ways of evaluating such a venture.” Do you agree? Be prepared for a stimulating study of Matthew 24:14. Yes, […]

Freedom Sabbath

by

Do you remember where you were when you learned about 9/11? It was much the same for me when I first learned about Human Trafficking back in November of 2013. My world stopped turning as I learned that there are more people enslaved today than the whole of slaves during the great abolition of slavery […]

The Foundation

by

What is the most basic of the basics? Is there something so fundamental that if we get this right our lives will have a good outcome and if we don’t, we won’t? Let’s ask Jesus by way of Matthew. Scripture: Mt 7:24-27; Mt 7:21-23; Jn 13:37-38; Mt 26:41; Mt 5:3,4,5; Mt 26;75; Jn 21:15,18; Acts […]

He Knew My Name

by

Today’s sermon is a journey back in time through the Bible to the book of Ruth. Imagine what it must have felt like to grow up afraid of the pagan god of your country. What must it have felt like to lose the man you married, and then to follow your mother-in-law to a new […]

The Case For Greed

by

There is a case to be made for greed from a biological, political, psychological, and parental perspective. I will try to make that case based on Matthew’s story of another rich young man. But there are always two sides to a case. The Bible makes the case that breaking the 10th commandment may be our […]

Follow Me

by

John’s gospel, written to believers who would remain after the one remaining apostle’s death, is a gospel directed to us today. In Jesus’ absence it would be the disciple’s responsibility, and by extension our responsibility, to carry on the work that Jesus had started. In the closing chapter of the gospel of John, the author […]

King of the Jews

by

John loves to use double meanings throughout his Gospel. Find out why the title “King of the Jews” written in 3 languages is both so tragic and so powerful. Scripture: John 19 – the whole chapter “King of the Jews” preached by Pastor John K McGhee on July 13th, 2019 at the Mount Vernon Seventh-day […]
