Restored: Blessings to Come
Matthew 5:1-12
Speaker: Christian Johns

The Pursuit of Happiness
Psalm 128

Many people, even Christians, think that life, as the Declaration of Independence says, is about pursuing happiness.  Instead, the Psalms indicate that life is best when concerned with God’s blessings.  “Blessing” and “happiness” must be understood as two very different things.  Happiness is fleeting and dwells on the things of this world.  But blessing is long-lasting and dwells on the things of God and the world to come.

Finding Your Purpose
Jeremiah 29:10-13a; Luke 12:22-31

This sermon will focus on finding your purpose and calling in life.  Does life have a purpose?  How do we choose our occupation, our spouse, and make the big decisions that come our way?  Is life just random?  What standard should we use? Jeremiah reflects on something of the purpose in life that God grants to each of us: to use our gifts in glorifying Him.

The Basket Case
Exodus 1:22-2:10

We will focus on the powerful sacrifice of love that Moses’ mother lived out in giving up her baby and to give him to God.  This, in some sense, is what we are all called to do as parents at home and as adults in the congregation – to give our children to the Lord.

With No Other Way Out
Romans 7:15-25a

The Apostle Paul writes a tongue twister that is nevertheless true about us all: “I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do.” And he calls out for spiritual rescue. The heart of the gospel is that, despite our failings and even our best efforts, Christ saves us from our predicament. He indeed is our Savior.

The Ministry of Reconciliation
Ephesians 4:1-6, 25-32; Matthew 18:15-20; 2 Corinthians 5:16-21

Controlling our emotions, listening to one another, seeking each other out are all parts of how Christians are to experience life with one another in the church. But more than anything else, our unity is based on a reconciliation Christ accomplished for us with God the Father, a reconciliation we in turn offer to one another.
