MARCH SERMONS

March 5, 2017 – Matthew 4:1-11 – “Helping By Doing Wrong”
After Jesus fasted forty days and forty nights to resist temptations, the devil thought Jesus might be in a more vulnerable condition and tempted Jesus again.  If we were in the same position, would we justify doing something questionable if the apparent result would be the satisfaction of human need, prove God’s presence in our midst or obtain financial stability for the Church?

March 12, 2017 – John 3:1-17 – “Why Make It Complicated?”
For centuries, people have sought answers to their questions about God, the Kingdom of God, and God’s will.  But as we search for answers, we sometimes make things more complicated than necessary.  God surprises us with some very simple solutions….yet we have a difficult time accepting simple answers to what we consider to be complex questions.  Have we made entry into God’s kingdom more complicated than it really is?!?

March 19, 2017 – Romans 5:1-11 – “It’s Uncomfortable To Get Something For Nothing”
It feels great to get a bargain or a good deal on something we are buying, but have you ever noticed that most of us are very uncomfortable when we are given something without any strings attached?  We’re not comfortable getting something for nothing.  We wonder if there’s a catch we just haven’t figured out.  We wonder if there’s an ulterior motive. And that all has an impact on our faith!

March 26, 2017 – John 9:1-41 – “How To Complicate Things”
Have you ever seen something positive happen and only to have one or more persons find all kinds of reasons why it wasn’t positive after all?  Human cynicism, pride and territoriality often get in the way of seeing the good that is happening in our world.  Although unfortunate, there is a lot of truth to the saying that “you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink!”
