1 Cor. 6:19-20; 1 Peter 1:18-19; Mark 10:44-45 (sermon note: 03-22 sermon note) (1 Cor.) Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, which you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you were bought with a price; therefore glorify God in your body. (1 Pet.) You know that you were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your ancestors, not with perishable things like silver or gold, but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without defect or blemish. (Mark) [Jesus said,] ‘And whoever wishes to be first among [...]

Matthew 25:1-13 (sermon note: 03-19 sermon note) [Jesus said,] ‘Then the kingdom of heaven will be like this. Ten bridesmaids took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish, and five were wise. When the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them; but the wise took flasks of oil with their lamps. As the bridegroom was delayed, all of them became drowsy and slept. But at midnight there was a shout, “Look! Here is the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.” Then all those bridesmaids got up and trimmed their lamps. The foolish said to the wise, “Give us [...]

Isaiah 53 (sermon note: 03-15 sermon note) Who has believed what we have heard?   And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? For he grew up before him like a young plant,   and like a root out of dry ground; he had no form or majesty that we should look at him,   nothing in his appearance that we should desire him. He was despised and rejected by others;   a man of suffering and acquainted with infirmity; and as one from whom others hide their faces   he was despised, and we held him of no account. Surely he has borne [...]

“Wedding Banquet”

March 12th, 2023|

Matthew 22:1-14 (sermon note: 03-12 sermon note) Once more Jesus spoke to them in parables, saying: ‘The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who gave a wedding banquet for his son. He sent his slaves to call those who had been invited to the wedding banquet, but they would not come. Again he sent other slaves, saying, “Tell those who have been invited: Look, I have prepared my dinner, my oxen and my fat calves have been slaughtered, and everything is ready; come to the wedding banquet.” But they made light of it and went away, one to his farm, another to his business, [...]

John 1:29; Leviticus 4:32-35 (sermon note: 03-08 sermon note) The next day he [John the Baptist] saw Jesus coming towards him and declared, ‘Here is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!’ If the offering you bring as a sin-offering is a sheep, you shall bring a female without blemish. You shall lay your hand on the head of the sin-offering; and it shall be slaughtered as a sin-offering at the spot where the burnt-offering is slaughtered. The priest shall take some of the blood of the sin-offering with his finger and put it on the horns of the altar of burnt-offering, [...]

Intern Sarah Gunderson from Zion Lutheran and I swapped pulpits this week. She led service for us and I led service for them. You can check out our service on our Facebook page. Otherwise, here is the message I gave at Zion. Enjoy! Pastor Sean John 3:1-17 Now there was a Pharisee named Nicodemus, a leader of the Jews. He came to Jesus by night and said to him, ‘Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher who has come from God; for no one can do these signs that you do apart from the presence of God.’ Jesus answered him, ‘Very truly, I tell you, no [...]

Matthew 18:15-35 (sermon note: 02-26 sermon note) [Jesus said,] ‘If another member of the church sins against you, go and point out the fault when the two of you are alone. If the member listens to you, you have regained that one. But if you are not listened to, take one or two others along with you, so that every word may be confirmed by the evidence of two or three witnesses. If the member refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church; and if the offender refuses to listen even to the church, let such a one be to you as a Gentile and [...]

Ash Wednesday

February 22nd, 2023|

Matthew 18:1-9 (sermon note: 02-22 sermon note) At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, ‘Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?’ He called a child, whom he put among them, and said, ‘Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever becomes humble like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me. ‘If any of you put a stumbling-block before one of these little ones who believe in me, it would be better for you if a great millstone [...]

Matthew 16:24-17:8 (sermon note: 02-19 sermon note) Then Jesus told his disciples, ‘If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake will find it. For what will it profit them if they gain the whole world but forfeit their life? Or what will they give in return for their life? ‘For the Son of Man is to come with his angels in the glory of his Father, and then he will repay everyone for what has been [...]

“Parables of the Kingdom”

February 12th, 2023|

Matthew 13:24-43 (sermon note: 02-12 sermon note) He put before them another parable: ‘The kingdom of heaven may be compared to someone who sowed good seed in his field; but while everybody was asleep, an enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and then went away. So when the plants came up and bore grain, then the weeds appeared as well. And the slaves of the householder came and said to him, “Master, did you not sow good seed in your field? Where, then, did these weeds come from?” He answered, “An enemy has done this.” The slaves said to him, “Then do you want us [...]

“The Golden Rule”

February 5th, 2023|

Matthew 7:1-14, 24-29 (sermon note: 02-05 sermon note) [Jesus said,] ‘Do not judge, so that you may not be judged. For with the judgment you make you will be judged, and the measure you give will be the measure you get. Why do you see the speck in your neighbor’s eye, but do not notice the log in your own eye? Or how can you say to your neighbor, “Let me take the speck out of your eye”, while the log is in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck [...]
