Remember Jesus Christ, Risen (Worship Service, April 1st, 2018)

Title: Remember Jesus Christ, Risen

Passage: 2’nd Timothy 2:8-10

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: April 1st, 2018

The church is in a fight for survival against a subtle enemy and hostile world. Sin is rampant. Lust threatens us all. Love of the world may turn us into deserters. Suffering will shake us. Persecution is still a reality. We need a bedrock to give us footing as the world around us seems to totter and shake. Verse 8 has the core idea for Timothy with the world seemingly spinning out of control: Remember Jesus Christ, risen from the dead, the offspring of David, as preached in my gospel. In the midst of your struggles against the world, the flesh, and the devil: Remember Jesus Christ, risen from the dead.

The Triumphal Entry (Worship Service, March 25th, 2018)

Title: The Triumphal Entry

Passage: Luke 19:28-40

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: March 25th, 2018

The focus of this passage is on the Lord Jesus Christ. The disciples’ response is important. Their words of praise, echoing Psalm 118, is clearly given to us as a positive example. Jesus clearly thinks the praise is a good thing. One point of the story of the Triumphal Entry is that we should respond to these events the same way Jesus’ disciples did. Luke’s account of the triumphal entry suggests at least three distinct reasons for us to rejoice in Christ.

Israel’s Sabbath (Worship Service, March 18th, 2018)

Title: Israel’s Sabbath

Passage: Exodus 20:8-11

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: March 18th, 2018

Today, we consider the 4th commandment. In the NT era, this is one of the most controversial commands. Someone’s approach to the 4th commandment often indicates how he understands the relationship of the OT law to the church.

Taking Up The Sacred Name (Worship Service, March 4th, 2018)

Title: Taking Up The Sacred Name

Passage: Exodus 20: 7

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: March 4th, 2018

This morning, we consider the third commandment. You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain, for the LORD will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain. Many suppose this word has to do with a short list of words to avoid in curses. I hope to help you understand that this command is about much more than that.

How is God’s Name Taken in Vain? (Worship Service, February 17, 2008)

Title: How is God’s Name Taken in Vain?

Passage: Exodus 20:7

Speaker: Dr. Kevin T. Bauder

Service: Sunday Morning Worship

Date: February 17, 2008*

Special Note: This sermon by Kevin Bauder, preached nearly one decade ago at this church, excellently applies the 3rd commandment to believers today. This sermon was especially formative for Pastor Martin. The sermon was lost in the transition to the current website several years ago. This sermon, however, was “rediscovered” and is now re-posted to the church’s website for your edification in conjunction with Pastor Martin’s own attempt to preach this great text of Holy Scripture.
