The Heart of Christ

John 13:1-17 13:1 It was just before the Passover Festival. Jesus knew that the hour had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end. 2 The evening meal was in progress, and the devil had already prompted Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot, to betray Jesus. 3 Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to…

A Brief Life with a Great God

Psalm 90:1-17 A prayer of Moses the man of God. 1 Lord, you have been our dwelling place    throughout all generations.2 Before the mountains were born    or you brought forth the whole world,    from everlasting to everlasting you are God. 3 You turn people back to dust,    saying, “Return to dust, you mortals.”4 A thousand years in your sight    are like a day that has just gone by,    or like a watch in the night.5 Yet you sweep people away in the sleep of death—    they are like the new grass of the morning:6 In…

God

Note: Due to a faulty piece of hardware, the audio and video cut out sporadically during this sermon. Sorry for the inconvenience. We will be replacing that part this week. Psalm 139:1-24 Psalm 139 For the director of music. Of David. A psalm. 1 You have searched me, Lord,    and you know me.2 You know when I sit and when I rise;    you perceive my thoughts from afar.3 You discern my going out and my lying down;    you are familiar with all my ways.4 Before a word is on my tongue    you, Lord,…

A Crisis of Faith

Psalm 73:1-28 A psalm of Asaph. 1 Surely God is good to Israel,    to those who are pure in heart. 2 But as for me, my feet had almost slipped;    I had nearly lost my foothold.3 For I envied the arrogant    when I saw the prosperity of the wicked. 4 They have no struggles;    their bodies are healthy and strong.5 They are free from common human burdens;    they are not plagued by human ills.6 Therefore pride is their necklace;    they clothe themselves with violence.7 From their callous hearts comes iniquity;    their evil imaginations have no limits.8 They scoff, and…

Safe in God

Psalm 91:1-16 1 Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High    will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,    my God, in whom I trust.” 3 Surely he will save you    from the fowler’s snare    and from the deadly pestilence.4 He will cover you with his feathers,    and under his wings you will find refuge;    his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.5 You will not fear the terror of night,    nor the arrow that flies by day,6 nor the pestilence that stalks in…

Rejoicing in Troubling times

Habakkuk 3:16-19 16 I heard and my heart pounded,    my lips quivered at the sound;decay crept into my bones,    and my legs trembled.Yet I will wait patiently for the day of calamity    to come on the nation invading us.17 Though the fig tree does not bud    and there are no grapes on the vines,though the olive crop fails    and the fields produce no food,though there are no sheep in the pen    and no cattle in the stalls,18 yet I will rejoice in the Lord,    I will be joyful in God my…

The Splendor of the Lord

Habakkuk 3:1-15 1 A prayer of Habakkuk the prophet. On shigionoth. 2 Lord, I have heard of your fame;    I stand in awe of your deeds, Lord.Repeat them in our day,    in our time make them known;    in wrath remember mercy. 3 God came from Teman,    the Holy One from Mount Paran.His glory covered the heavens    and his praise filled the earth.4 His splendor was like the sunrise;    rays flashed from his hand,    where his power was hidden.5 Plague went before him;    pestilence followed his steps.6 He stood, and shook the earth;    he looked, and made the nations tremble.The ancient mountains crumbled    and the…

God’s Evaluation of Evil

Habakkuk 2:6-20 6 “Will not all of them taunt him with ridicule and scorn, saying, “‘Woe to him who piles up stolen goods    and makes himself wealthy by extortion!    How long must this go on?’7 Will not your creditors suddenly arise?    Will they not wake up and make you tremble?    Then you will become their prey.8 Because you have plundered many nations,    the peoples who are left will plunder you.For you have shed human blood;    you have destroyed lands and cities and everyone in them. 9 “Woe to him who builds his…

Learning to Live by Faith

Habakkuk 2:1-5 2:1 I will stand at my watch    and station myself on the ramparts;I will look to see what he will say to me,    and what answer I am to give to this complaint. 2 Then the Lord replied: “Write down the revelation    and make it plain on tablets    so that a herald may run with it.3 For the revelation awaits an appointed time;    it speaks of the end    and will not prove false.Though it linger, wait for it;    it will certainly come    and will not delay. 4 “See, the enemy is puffed up;    his desires are not upright—    but…

Questioning God

Habakkuk 1:5-17 5 “Look at the nations and watch—    and be utterly amazed.For I am going to do something in your days    that you would not believe,    even if you were told.6 I am raising up the Babylonians,    that ruthless and impetuous people,who sweep across the whole earth    to seize dwellings not their own.7 They are a feared and dreaded people;    they are a law to themselves    and promote their own honor.8 Their horses are swifter than leopards,    fiercer than wolves at dusk.Their cavalry gallops headlong;    their horsemen come from afar.They fly like an eagle…

A Crisis of Faith

Habakkuk 1:1-4 1 The prophecy that Habakkuk the prophet received. 2 How long, Lord, must I call for help,    but you do not listen?Or cry out to you, “Violence!”    but you do not save?3 Why do you make me look at injustice?    Why do you tolerate wrongdoing?Destruction and violence are before me;    there is strife, and conflict abounds.4 Therefore the law is paralyzed,    and justice never prevails.The wicked hem in the righteous,    so that justice is perverted.

Neighbor-Love

Luke 10:25-37 25 On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?” 26 “What is written in the Law?” he replied. “How do you read it?” 27 He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” 28 “You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do this and you will live.” 29 But he…
