Walk as Wise – Ephesians 5:15-21

1/14/18 p.m. sermon

Speaker: Justin P. Sivley
As Christians, we are to walk as those who are wise, not as the unwise.  As Paul writes in Ephesians 5, we walk in wisdom by being good stewards of the time God has given us, being Spirit filled, and submitting ourselves to one another.

God Will Provide a Lamb – Gen. 22:8

1/14/18 a.m. sermon

Speaker: Justin P. Sivley
God’s plan for redeeming mankind was in place long before Christ came.  Through the family of Abraham, through the son of the promise Isaac, all the nations would be blessed.  In one instance, Abraham’s faith was tested, and God reaffirmed the covenant with the patriarch.

A Sermon With No Scripture – Acts 17:22-34

1/7/18 a.m. sermon

Speaker: Justin P. Sivley
Usually we balk at the idea of a preacher not using any Scripture in his sermon, as well we should.  But there is at least one example of the apostle Paul preaching a sermon without referencing any Scripture.  It’s his sermon to the Areopagus in Acts 17, and though he teaches Scriptural truth, he doesn’t quote any Biblical texts as he presents the truth to idolatrous philosophers.

Our Interceding Helper – Romans 8:26

12/31/17 a.m. sermon

Speaker: Justin P. Sivley
While there is a great deal of discussion about some aspects of the Holy Spirit’s work, there are other things that are quite clear in Scripture.  Together we will answer three questions. Who is the Spirit? What did He do in the past?  What does He do in the church today?

Walk in Love – Eph. 5:1-2

12/17/17 p.m. sermon

Speaker: Justin P. Sivley

Love is too important for a Christian to ignore. Love is emphasized as a required quality of God’s people throughout the Bible, and it is no different today than it was 2000 years ago. Christians are to walk in love. We are to walk in love because we have been loved. We are to love God with all that we are, and we are to love our neighbor as ourself.

Our Wonderful Savior – Gal. 4:4-5

12/17/17 a.m. sermon

Speaker: Justin P. Sivley
“A Wonderful Savior is Jesus My Lord.” So begins a favorite song about the Christ who died for each and every one of us.  At a time when many are mindful of the birth of Christ, we take some time to study about the wonderful Christ who gave himself for us, who rose from the dead, ascended into heaven, and is coming again.

Put on the New Self – Eph. 4:25-32

12/10/17 p.m. sermon

Speaker: Justin P. Sivley
Being a Christian is about more than going to church on Sunday.  Being a Christian requires that we putt off the old self, the way we once lived, and put on the new self, to live as a new creation in Christ.  In Eph. 4:25-32, the Apostle Paul gives some very specific and practical examples of how the new self lives.

Our Loving Father – Lk. 15:11-32

12/10/17 a.m. sermon

Speaker: Justin P. Sivley
Fathers are often not perfect.  In fact, fathers often let their children down.  Some even shun the responsibility entirely.  But God is our Heavenly Father, and no matter what men may do or say to us in our lives, we can trust without a doubt that God will never let us down.  He is our Wonderful Father.
