2020 Sermon Series:

God's Story, Your Story and Our Story Through the Eyes of the Gospel Writers: Warm Relationships and Their Significance for Being the Best Neighbors

January 12 - February 23, 2020

January 12, 2020

Sermon Title: “Christ Is Not Just Jesus of Nazareth”

Texts: Isaiah 42:1-9; Psalm 29; Acts 10:34-43; and Matthew 3:13-17

Big Idea: Created in the image of God. Regenerated by God. Converting in God. Jesus lives his life in you as you. This is foundational to have warm relationships as Jesus envisions for humanity.

January 19, 2020

Sermon Title: “Goodness, Meaning and Wholeness”

Texts: Isaiah 49:1-7; Psalm 40:1-11; 1 Corinthians 1:1-9, and John 1:29-42

Big Idea: Original goodness? Love is the foundation of your well-being and participation in God’s mission. With Christ in us, what is the desired outcome?

January 26, 2020

Sermon Title: “Do Not Stay On The Surface Of Jesus’ Teachings”

Texts:  Isaiah 9:1-4; Psalm 27:1, 4-9; 1 Corinthians 1:10-18; and Matthew 4:12-23

Big Idea: Jesus sets the bar for what it means to be fully human.

February 02, 2020

Sermon Title: “The Qualitative Difference”

Texts: Micah 6:1-8; Psalm 15; 1 Corinthians 1:18-31; Matthew 5:1-12

Big Idea: Feminine wisdom is qualitatively different than male wisdom. Destiny is ours after we consent to die.

February 09, 2020

Sermon Title: “God The Father Is Not A Tyrant Or Abusive Dad”

Texts:  Isaiah 58:1-9a; Psalm 112:1-9; 1 Corinthians 2:1-12; and Matthew 5:13-20

Big Idea: Yes, Jesus died for our sins. Penalty for original sin (retributive justice) or restorative justice? God will get us to the destination, together in love.

February 16, 2020

Sermon Title: “If It’s Not All Right, It’s Not The End”

Texts:  Deuteronomy 30:15-20; Psalm 119:1-8; 1 Corinthians 3:1-9; and
Matthew 5:21-37

Big Idea: We’re all one in suffering and life. Resurrection is contagious and free for the taking. The first century witness to the Gospel were committed not to a new idea but to a new lifestyle.

February 23, 2020

Sermon Title: “Seeing All Things In God And God In All Things”

Texts: Exodus 24:12-18; Psalm 2; 2 Peter 1:16-21; and Matthew 17:1-9

Big Idea: Living in a non-binary way. That means life is not an either-or, problem solving, all-or-nothing mindset. Warm relationships embrace and remain intact during difficulty and blessing.
