Sermon Sunday December 22


Joy from the Inside Out John 15:9-11, Luke 1:39-55

Joy is the GIFT that is given to all the world by Jesus. A promise made not only in his birth but also in His living. But do we really take the joy, live in the joy and share the joy?

As Christmas is only a few days away is it really “Joy To The World?”

“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.” (John 15:9-11)

Sermon December 8: Joy Because of a Coming Lord -Psalm 98


Sermon December 8: Joy Because of a Coming Lord –Psalm 98

Joy to the World the Lord is come. Do we really understand what it means to call Jesus Lord? In this season of baby Jesus and sentimentality do we realize the baby came to save but also to judge? Righteousness is the gift of Christmas and that goes beyond trees and presents and googly feelings. Righteousness is what we need and what we will live in during this ADVENT.

Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth,burst into jubilant song with music; make music to the Lord with the harp,with the harp and the sound of singing,with trumpets and the blast of the ram’s horn-shout for joy before the Lord, the King.” (Psalm 98:4-6)

New Sermon Series: Joy to the World!




Sermon December 1: Sing Out the Joy –Isaiah 42:10-17

Advent is a time to take stock of the fact that Joy comes to the world because the Lord has come. Isaiah foretold that when the Messiah came, He would give us JOY in the midst of the harshness of life.

I wonder can we find the joy in the midst of the events in our economy, in a marriage gone sour, in a nation that is conflicted?

Let’s discover the joy the Lord will bring.

“Sing to the Lord a new song, his praise from the ends of the earth…”

(Isaiah 42:10)
