Beloved, Be Loving

"Dearly Beloved…" That's the way I started out my last wedding sermon. I know it's a little bit of a throwback. We don't call too many people "beloved" anymore, but I hope you know what I mean. Today, I want to think about why that's a perfect way to greet one another…"beloved".

Grace Notes: This changes things! Part II

No matter who you are, storms will come in your life. But as Jesus preaches in his Sermon on the Mount, he makes it clear that with his word, we handle those storms better. And the more we are in the word, the more firmly entrenched we become so we can hide from the storms in those offers and promises of God.

Scharf: Do Not Worry!

"Is this stuff going on in Egypt a sign of the end of the world?" "If I lose my job, we'll never make it." "I'm worried that we'll lose our house." "What does all this mean for our kids?" "I can't take one more loss. I'll lose my mind!"

Grace Notes - What's it Worth?

If you remember the story of the wise men from Matthew 2, you probably remember that they did something that might strike you as a little odd. They brought stupendously valuable gifts to a baby, gold and incense and myrrh. And these three kings, these powerful, influential, important men, bowed to a child.

The word made flesh

Wives, do you wish your husbands were better communicators? Guys, do you wish your wives didn't read things into what you say that were never there? You know what I'm talking about:

You've heard the song: "I'll be home for Christmas. You can plan on me…"

Grace Notes: What will you do with the promise?

What if George Washington had lost? Would you still know his name, or would Benedict Arnold be the guy that all the third grade history projects are on?

Grace Notes: Repent! It’s a good thing!

Everyone knows that there's no surer way to make friends than going around telling people they are wrong, right? OK, I know you're wiser than that: People hate to hear that they are wrong. They fire back with insults, accusations, rationale and everything else to avoid the dagger of those words. We don't like to hear that we are wrong, but that's the message John the Baptist was screaming in our section of Scripture today, from Matthew 3: "Repent." And that's a message we all need to hear.

Grace Notes: See Christ the King

The section of God's Word we're looking at today is Luke 23:35-43. It's the story of Christ on the cross. That might seem like an odd section of Scripture to be looking at at this time of the year, but it's chosen because here at the end of the church year, we have this Sunday called "Christ the King" Sunday. And this text with Jesus on the cross is all about Christ being our King.
