Sermons on Psalms

Song of Faith

The table has become the centerpiece of our Thanksgiving celebration, and for good reason. Not only does the table (and the food on it) represent God’s provision, but scientists have discovered that the human mind attaches significant memories to the sense of smell and taste. As you eat, you are literally rehearsing memories associated with those tastes and smells. Remembering God’s faithfulness in the past is an antidote to fear of the future and helps build our faith.

Song of Contentment

Living in a social media society causes us to live our lives in constant comparison to others.  Always watching what other people have and are doing, will cause us not to value what we have.  This lack of appreciation and thankfulness can often lead to anxiety, restlessness, and even depression. Keeping our focus on the life and path God has set out for us, “staying in our lane,” can help develop an attitude of gratitude, which can allow joy and…

Song of Resilience

The Bible says that Christians are to be thankful in all circumstances. That sounds good until we consider some of the most difficult circumstances of life. How can we practice gratitude in the midst of sickness, injustice, pandemics, and social unrest? Join us for part one of Psalms of Thanksgiving where we will explore how gratitude counteracts doubt and despair and makes us more resilient. Giving thanks counteracts doubt and despair and makes us more resilient. The reality of our…

Mission

A recurring theme throughout the book of Psalms is a declaration of God’s reign over all the nations of the earth. In fact, this idea runs throughout the course of the entire Bible, beginning with God’s command to Adam and Eve to be fruitful and multiply, to Jesus call for His followers to make disciples of all nations, to the culmination of human history when the book of Revelations declares that “The kingdom of this world has become the kingdoms…

Testimony

Have you ever received news so good you felt like you would explode? If your life had been a musical, you would have burst into song! If so, you have also likely had the opposite experience. Times when the burdens of life seemed so heavy that you were desperate for someone else to help carry the load. Times when the song in the musical of your life would have been in a minor key. Many of the Psalms are testimonies…

Confession

Edgar Allan Poe’s famous short story, “The Tell-Tale Heart,” describes the tortured mind of someone who has committed a horrible crime. His secret is eating him alive and driving him insane. Secret sin has that effect on the human heart. Because we are created in the image of God, our hearts are not designed to hold onto sin. When we try to keep sin a secret, we suffer physical, emotional, and spiritual consequences. Join us for the second message in…

Creation

The Bible begins with a description of God’s creation and man’s call to steward and care for it. So what does that mean for Christians today? What is the biblical view of creation and the environment? Throughout history people have, on the one hand, confused creation with the Creator, and on the other, ignored God’s call to care for the world He has given us. Join us for the first message in the Summer Psalms Mixtape where we will learn…

Throwing Strikes

Major League baseball teams play 162 games during the regular season. Eighty-one games are played “away” and another 81 are played at home. Since 2004 the average MLB baseball team has won 54% percent of their home games. This “Home Field Advantage” comes, in part, because the host team has a better knowledge of the field and a friendly crowd cheering them on. But imagine if a baseball team only won games on the road and lost all of their…

Unlimited

When we think about boundaries it is easy to think only about those boundaries God has set for us, but it is also important to consider how God Himself has chosen to work and relate to us within certain boundaries. Why would an omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent God restrict Himself to the boundaries of time, space, temptation, and suffering? Join us for the conclusion of the Boundaries series to learn the answer and to discover the secret to living the unlimited…

Hemmed In

You’ve probably heard the statement, “Great fences make great neighbors.” Regardless of how you feel about that phrase, you have likely experienced the benefit of healthy boundaries in certain relationships and the pain that comes with the lack of them in others. Healthy boundaries are important in other areas of life as well. From how we handle money and use our time, to how we deal with suffering and respond to disappointments, boundaries are a reality for all of us. Join…

Destination

There are places we want to go and places we must go. We want to go on vacation; we must go to the dentist. We want to go to the movies or a sporting event; we must go to school or work. Whether it is a “want to” or a “must” go place, technology allows us to type in the destination and our phones will tell us how to get there. That’s exactly how many of us approach prayer. We…
