For Mothers Day, I take a look at one of the most important mothers of all time--Mary the Mother of Jesus. I take a look at her life, her interactions with Jesus, and how she is an example to us.

From the Mouth of an Ass

We look at the story of Balaam, the prophet for profit. Why does God get mad when Balaam goes to Balak even though God tells him to go? Why does Balaam get so mad at his ass?

The Meaning of the Cross: Recapitulation and Christus Victor

lets-recap.jpg

Here I talk about the Cross as a recapitulation. According to Romans 5, Jesus retells the story of Adam. He is doing that in our lives, too.

The Meaning of the Cross: Coutroom Imagery

Courtroom.jpg

This sermon unpacks the way the Bible uses legal imagery including judgement, righteousness, the Day of the Lord, the Bema, and the Final Judgement. I use these ideas to talk about what Jesus accomplishes on the cross, which is more than just a legal act, but also an act of reconciliation.

The Meaning of the Cross: Ransom and Redemption

Free_Redemption.jpg

I take a look at the images of ransom and redemption, looking at Old Testament law, the Book of Ruth, images of God as redeemer in the Old Testament, then finally Jesus Christ as redeemer and giving his life as a ransom. I end considering what it means that our lives and the lives of others are so valuable to Christ that he would pay the price of his life for us.

Shadowlands Pt 6: Hope for the Darkness

Shadowlands_Logo.jpg

THIS SERMON:
There is a day coming when all things will be restored. That does not mean that things will just be put back together, but that all the wrongs of the world will be made beautiful. Darkness turns into light. We long for that day, and cling to the hope of that ending until that day comes.

THIS SERIES:
In life, we are sometimes forced to walk through shadowlands. We can get scared, lost, and angry as pain, suffering, and grief surround us. We must learn to understand, navigate, and journey through the valley of the shadow of death. Most importantly, we must remember that we are not alone. Christ is with us and we are with each other.
Pastor Jordan Rimmer will preach the series simultaneous to his friend Pastor Chris Thomas from First Presbyterian Church of Dearborn, MI.
Sunday School curriculum will also be available for the series that was filmed by Pastors Chris and Jordan. You can watch them at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCwS2NaLexncln9qUJ4wJhsg.

Shadowlands Pt 5: Fog in the Darkness

Shadowlands_Logo.jpg

THIS SERMON:

After Elijah defeats the prophets of Baal in amazing fashion, his life is threatened. He runs for his life when he should have been most confident. But aren't anxiety and depression just like that? In his weakness, God cares for him and reveals himself in the whisper or still small voice.

Shadowlands Pt 4: Surrendering in the Darkness

Shadowlands_Logo.jpg

THIS SERMON:
I begin this sermon talking about Zebras and the impact of stress on the brain. I then turn to the impact of stress on the soul. But God does not take away our stress. He even prays that we would be left in the world. So we have to learn to deal. We have to trust that God can redeem bad situations, trust him to guide our steps, and give ourselves some grace along the way.

Shadowlands Pt 3: Dwelling in the Darkness

Shadowlands_Logo.jpg

THIS SERMON:

Jesus was fully human and understands what we go through, not in an abstract way, but because he feels those things. In the Garden of Gethsemane, he sweat drops of blood from the pain he was anticipating.

Shadowlands Pt 2: Reacting to the Darkness

Shadowlands_Logo.jpg

THIS SERMON:

When Jesus comes to see Lazarus, he is late by Martha’s standards. She lets him know so. Is this a lack of faith, or does it show that she has faith Jesus could have healed Lazarus? Maybe our honest laments are more an act of faith than of doubt.

Shadowlands Pt 1: Plunged into Darkness

Shadowlands_Logo.jpg

THIS SERMON:

Part of the scariest parts of the darkness is the unknown. But God never promised we would understand. He only promised that he will be with us. Maybe we are asking the wrong questions. Job is a book of his friends trying to explain the pain that job goes through, but at the end God rants about how is Job to know. All along, the real answer to why suffering is happening is that God and the devil had a bet. The point is that the answers are unknowable.
