This Is What We Look Like

May 31, 2020. “This Is What We Look Like” 25 Therefore, having put away falsehood, let each one of you speak the truth with his neighbor, for we are members one of another. 26 Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, 27 and give no opportunity to the devil. 28 Let the thief no longer steal, but rather let him labor, doing honest work with his own hands, so that he may have something to…

Walk This Way!

May 24, 2020 Walk This Way! 17 Now this I say and testify in the Lord, that you must no longer walk as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their minds. 18 They are darkened in their understanding, alienated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them, due to their hardness of heart. 19 They have become callous and have given themselves up to sensuality, greedy to practice every kind of impurity. 20 But that is not the…

(ESV)

The Riches of His Glory

May 10, 2020. “The Riches of His Glory” 14 For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, 16 that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what…

We Are a Masterpiece

May 3, 2020   “We Are a Masterpiece” 2:1 And you were dead in the trespasses and sins 2 in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience— 3 among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the…

The Hope of His Calling

April 26, 2020 “The Hope of His Calling” 15 For this reason, because I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love toward all the saints, 16 I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, 17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, 18 having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may…

In Distress

March 22, 2020 In Distress 8 We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; 9 persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; 10 always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies. 11 For we who live are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh. 12 So…

The Answer to Life

March 15, 2020 The Answer to Life Following the sermon, continue worship with this musical meditation from Kerby Baier, Assistant Director of Music Ministries. Good morning, Genesis! In lieu of corporate musical worship this morning, I offer a musical meditation for you.

Freedom from the Past

Sunday March 1, 2020. Freedom from the Past. 12 Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned— 13 for sin indeed was in the world before the law was given, but sin is not counted where there is no law. 14 Yet death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those whose sinning was not like the transgression of Adam, who was a type of the…

I’m Reminding You to Remember!

February 23, 2020. I’m Reminding you to Remember. 12 Therefore I intend always to remind you of these qualities, though you know them and are established in the truth that you have. 13 I think it right, as long as I am in this body, to stir you up by way of reminder, 14 since I know that the putting off of my body will be soon, as our Lord Jesus Christ made clear to me. 15 And I will make every effort so…

Loyal to God Only

February 16, 2020. Loyal to God Only. 3:1 But I, brothers, could not address you as spiritual people, but as people of the flesh, as infants in Christ. 2 I fed you with milk, not solid food, for you were not ready for it. And even now you are not yet ready, 3 for you are still of the flesh. For while there is jealousy and strife among you, are you not of the flesh and behaving only in a human way? 4 For…

How to Mend A Broken Heart

February 2, 2020. How to Mend a Broken Heart. 6:1 Hear what the Lord says:Arise, plead your case before the mountains,and let the hills hear your voice. 2 Hear, you mountains, the indictment of the Lord,and you enduring foundations of the earth,for the Lord has an indictment against his people,and he will contend with Israel. 3 “O my people, what have I done to you?How have I wearied you? Answer me! 4 For I brought you up from the land of Egyptand redeemed you…

Fixed Focus: Steps to Keep a Fixed Focus on God

January 26, 2020. Fixed Focus: Steps to Keep a Fixed Focus on God. 12:1 Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at…

Fixed Focus: Reasons We Lose Our Focus

Sunday January 19, 2020. Fixed Focus: Reasons We Lose Our Focus. 25 Let your eyes look directly forward,and your gaze be straight before you. 26 Ponder the path of your feet;then all your ways will be sure. 27 Do not swerve to the right or to the left;turn your foot away from evil. (ESV)
