The preaching of God’s Word is a high priority at Stonebridge. We make available our sermons for those unable to attend on Sundays. We hope we are all helped as we listen to the Word of God preached.
In Jeremiah 11 the prophet, similar to a physician, is, being given God’s diagnosis of Judah’s “problem”; Judah’s disease. Its a lethal condition but the ‘patient’ is not listening or taking the medicine that will help the ‘patient’ be cured. Dom Marko, our preacher this Sunday, walks us through the diagnosis and then presents the cure.
Martin Rossol got a bit off the subject of “anger” but it allowed him to address how we might understand God using sinful acts of humans to accomplish his will.
Randy Meyers rounded out his 3-sermon series “Walking in the Spirit” this Sunday. He quoted some well-known and some not so well-known authors – all to get us thinking. And “thinking” is one critical aspect for which we are accountable if we are to ‘walk in the Spirit’.
Pastor Frison speaks about the freedom that believers have been gifted with as a result of Jesus sacrifice. Yet his text is Psalm 27; a Psalm of David who was not always as “free” as he would have liked to have been.
The Bible teaches that when a person comes to believe in Jesus as the solution to their “God problem” that they become a new creation. Pastor Galardi explains what that means in Sunday’s sermon.
St Paul’s letter to the Galatians was likely the genesis of the Reformation. And in Chapter 1:1-5 St Paul sets out the basic message that he hopes to communicate to the churches.
This talk is perhaps a 2-in-1. What about God’s commands? Are we still obligated to obey if we have trusted in Jesus? And what about Samuel’s anger? Why no sanctions against that “anger”? Well, Martin Rossol covers these issues quite well in his talk. Give a listen.
In the past 24 months, Americans have “endured” all manner of stress, distress, uncertainty, confusion, mis-information, and more. As believers, where are we to find comfort from all this? Pastor Mike reminds us from 2 Corinthians, that St Paul was no stranger from difficulties and stress, but that he also has a source of comfort.
A simple phrase. Well, Pastor Galardi helps us understand just some of the richness of this text in this sermon.
Randy Meyers continued part 2 of his two-part series Walking in the Spirit. And today Randy revealed something which seems to have eluded him in earlier years; that being that the gospel is more than “Jesus Saves Sinners”. Randy believes that statement is still true, but he has come to realize that the gospel is more than that.
The writer of Ecclesiastes [king Solomon?] doesn’t pull any punches. He says the hard honest truth. And he should know. He was the wisest man who lived, save Jesus Christ. Long life, lots of children, hard work and ambition: none of this will bring satisfaction or mean to a person unless God is part of the picture.
Our own Martin Rossol covered a lot of ground, or maybe provided a 30,000 foot view of “Kingship” in the Bible, mostly focused in the Old Testament, but also the fulfillment of this “office” by Jesus- as prophesied. How and when did the office of “King” originate and how might we think about it today. This is the first in a series on anger – you’ll have to catch later episodes to see the connection!
What statistic does no one what to be part of, but we all will be? Death. God doesn’t shy from the brutal truth: as a consequence of sin, everyone is condemned to die. As early as Genesis chapter 5 God forcefully confirms this fact to anyone who is paying attention. Yet even in this dismal description of humanity, there are two seeds of hope. Martin Rossol does not what you to miss these two glimmers.
I don’t know about you, but when I look at the the stars, the planets, and the galaxies- when I can identify them, that is -I can come away feeling rather small. Totally inconsequential, might be more appropriate. King David might have had similar feelings based on his expressions in Psalm 8, as Pastor Croyts explains in his sermon.
In this first of a multi-part sermon series based in Galatians 5, Randy Meyer sets the foundation for some teaching on becoming more Christ-like in our actual behavior. How is this “sanctification”- which is a theological term for it -accomplished? Randy weaves in related Scriptures from Romans and 2 Corinthians. The key, says Randy, is faith.
The book of Ecclesiastes is an interesting book, to say the least. Pastor Jeff continued in his series on this book to help listeners understand that our “good enough” will never actually be good enough. So what will be? Maybe if you listen…
