The Cross: Ransom and Redemption

Rembrandt_The_Three_Crosses_1653.jpg
This sermon continues my series on motifs of the cross in scripture. This one looks at Ransom and Redemption. We talk about ransom with kidnappings and redeeming coupons, but these words are loaded with meaning and images in the Bible. What do they tell us about the death of Jesus on the cross?

The Cross: The Blood Sacrifice

This starts my Lent series called "The Cross." I am taking a look at the metaphors and motifs of the cross in scripture to explore why Jesus went to the cross and what the cross accomplishes. Here I look at one of the most used metaphor for the cross in the Bible- The Blood Sacrifice. This is probably also the most uncomfortable metaphor for us today.
The scripture is from 1 Corinthians 2. I forgot to hit record as I began so the recording starts halfway through the passage.

Paradox: You Give to Receive

In this sermon I wrap up my series on paradoxes of the faith by talking about how you have to give in order to receive. This is an idea foreign to our world today.
This series was inspired by the book Paradoxes for Living by N. Graham Standish. I highly recommend that book.

Paradox: Maturity is being Childlike

IMG_4317.jpg
In this sermon I take a look at the paradox that for Christians maturity actually means becoming childlike. I distinguish this from being childish and from how the world defines maturity. The sermon is light and short to fit the occasion. The children of the church led worship including reading the scripture from Matthew 18:1-6. They even led children's songs for the hymns. It was very fun and this sermon was written to fit with and accentuate our childlike worship service.
