Sermon: Hosea 14 - Hosea: The Faithful, Free Love of God. When we are spiritually weak, what is the source of our trouble? We are often quick to blame our circumstances or those around us, but in the book of Hosea we learn that the problems that cause us to stumble into sin are much closer to home. In fact, Hosea reminds us that our sin is our greatest problem. But he also reminds us that there is hope for sinners if they repent and look to God for grace and mercy. In this week's sermon, we begin a new series on The Minor Prophets, focusing on the book of Hosea and the faithful, free love of God for His people.

Sermon: Luke 12:8-12 - Confessing the Son by the Power of the Spirit. In this week's sermon, Pastor Robb looks at the unpardonable sin: blasphemy of the Holy Spirit. Why does Jesus bring up this sin, and what exactly is it? Listen to this week's sermon as we tackle this difficult but important question.

May 15, 2016

Sermon: Luke 12:1-7 - Whom Shall I Fear? A persistent problem every Christian faces is the fear of man. We are naturally beholden to what other people might think about what we say, do, or believe, and this fear brings all kinds of troubles into our lives. So how can we overcome this fear and replace it with unwavering faith in God and His purposes? That's what we look at in this week's sermon on Luke 12:1-7. Listen to this week's sermon to learn the biblical prescription for moving from fearing man to trusting God.

May 8, 2016

Sermon: Luke 11:45-54 - When Knowing the Scriptures Brings Divine Judgment. Knowing the Bible is supposed to bring blessing. After all, the Apostle Paul wrote that the scriptures are able to give us the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith in Christ. So how could knowing the Bible bring about divine judgment? That's what we are looking at in this week's sermon. Listen to this sermon on Luke 11:45-54 as we consider the difference between knowing the scriptures in a saving way and knowing the scriptures in a way that results in condemnation.

May 1, 2016

Sermon: Luke 11:37-44 - A Lesson about Hypocrisy. When a Pharisee invited Jesus over for lunch, Jesus accepted the invitation. What ensued was a vital lesson on the nature and consequences of hypocrisy. Listen to this week's sermon as we consider the dangers of hypocrisy, how can you tell if you are a hypocrite, and where hypocrisy ultimately leads.

Apr 24, 2016

Sermon: Luke 11:29-36 - The Only Sign for a Wicked Generation. After Jesus cast a demon out a man, some onlookers were seeking a sign from heaven to verify that He was indeed the Messiah. This group of skeptics seemed well-intentioned enough, wanting to see more evidence for Jesus' claims, yet Jesus issued His most scathing rebuke against them, promising them only one sign: the sign of Jonah. What is this sign? And how does it relate to Jesus? Listen to this week's sermon as we look at Luke 11:29-36 and Jesus' words to skeptics.

Apr 18, 2016

Sermon: Luke 11:24-28 - True or False Conversion? In this week's sermon, we take a look at a peculiar saying of Jesus involving a demonic spirit that leaves a person, vainly looks for rest, and then returns. What is the point of this saying of Jesus? Meanwhile, a woman from the crowd interrupts Jesus as He is speaking, which turns into an opportunity for Jesus to draw a contrast between true and false conversion. Listen to this week's sermon to find out what it means to be truly converted and to find out the dangers of thinking you belong to Jesus when in reality you do not.

Apr 10, 2016

Sermon: 2 Corinthians 4:7-18 - How to Be a Faithful Missionary Wherever You Are. What are the keys to being faithful to the Gospel of Jesus Christ? Advanced communication skills? Great personal strength? Good people skills? A certain personality? Surprisingly to our cultural sensibilities, the Apostle Paul mentions none of these things as helps to faithfulness. Find out what he does note as significant in this week's sermon.

Apr 4, 2016

Sermon: Luke 11:14-23 - Taking Sides: Jesus vs. Satan, Part 2. When Jesus cast out a demon, people accused Him of working by Satanic power. Jesus exposed the irrationality of unbelief, but then He went on to give a two more reasons why sinners should repent and trust in Him. Listen to this week's sermon learn more.

Mar 28, 2016

Sermon: 2 Corinthians 5:14-6:2 - Reconciled by Death and Resurrection. The historicity of Jesus' death and resurrection is vitally important to recognize, but beyond this, the New Testament calls us beyond believing in these bare facts to penetrate into what these facts mean. Why is Jesus' resurrection significant? How can you know if His resurrection has had any impact on you? In this week's Resurrection Sunday sermon, Pastor Robb explains the significance of Jesus' death and resurrection. Listen to this sermon to learn why the resurrection of Jesus is the most important event in history and how you can tell if this remarkable event has impacted you.

Mar 26, 2016

Sermon: Galatians 3:13 - Christ Became a Curse for Us. When Jesus died on the cross, the most significant aspect of His suffering had nothing to do with physical pain. So what was it that caused Him to sweat drops of blood when He prayed in the garden? Why was He in such agony leading up to and on the cross? Listen to this Good Friday sermon on the sufferings of Christ and why His cross is so wondrous for believers.

Mar 21, 2016

Sermon: Luke 11:14-23 - Taking Sides: Jesus vs. Satan, Part 1. People react to the truth of God's Word in manifold ways, but Jesus boils down all responses to Him to two: you are either with Him or against Him. In this sermon we begin to unfold why you should follow Jesus in repentance and faith by looking at a group of people who rejected Him and His works. What was their reason for rejecting Jesus, and what does their rejection of the Lord tell us about the true nature of the human heart?

Mar 14, 2016

Sermon: What Does the Bible Say about Demons? (Selected Scriptures). Given the rise in interest in spiritual realms, it is not surprising that people believe in demons and the demonic. However, they also fail to understand what the Bible teaches about demons, leading to all sorts of problems. In this sermon find out what the Bible really says about demons so that you can understand what they do, what their goals are, and how to combat them biblically. This sermon is the final message in our 2016 Winter Theology Series on Angels, Satan, and Demons.

Mar 7, 2016

Sermon: Luke 11:9-13 - Ask, Seek, Knock. When you come to the Lord in prayer, are you confident He is willing to answer your prayers? One of the greatest impediments to effective prayer is low confidence that prayer matters, that prayer is significant, or that God will answer the prayers of His people. So how can we gain such confidence? In this sermon, we wrap our series on prayer by studying Jesus' teaching about why the believer should have confidence in God's willingness to answer prayer.

Feb 29, 2016

Sermon: Luke 11:5-8 - Pray Shamelessly. The Lord's Prayer gives us the structure for the content of our prayers, but how should we conduct ourselves in prayer? What attitude does God want us to have when we go to Him in prayer? In this week's sermon, we take a look at a memorable parable that teaches us how to pray.

Feb 22, 2016

Sermon: Luke 11:4 - How to Pray, Part 5. Every need we have in life can be broken down into three basic categories. In last week's sermon, we looked at the first category of need: God's provision. In this week's sermon, we conclude our look at the Lord's Prayer by looking at the last two categories of need in the final two petitions Jesus taught His disciples to pray. What are these final two needs? And when all is said and done, what is principal point of prayer? Listen to this week's sermon to learn more.

Feb 14, 2016

Sermon: Luke 11:3 - How to Pray, Part 4. Our daily bread seems like such a mundane and predictable request, especially for the model prayer. Why did our Lord teach us to pray for our daily bread? What is the significance of this prayer, especially for people who seem to have so much more than simply the daily necessities of life? That's our subject in this week's sermon. Listen to this sermon on Luke 11:3 to see why the Lord wants us to seek Him for our daily bread.

Feb 14, 2016

Sermon: What Does the Bible Say about Satan? (Selected Scriptures). While Satan is often depicted in pop culture, general belief among professing Christians about Satan is on the decline. What does the Bible say about this malevolent being? Where did he originate? What does he do in the world? And, most importantly, how can Christians stand against his evil onslaughts? Listen to this sermon to learn what the Bible says about Satan and how it equips you to resist him, firm in your faith.

Feb 8, 2016

Sermon: Luke 11:2 - How to Pray, Part 3. Prayer gives rise to more practical questions that any other subject in the scriptures. In this week's sermon, we take a look at some questions people often have about prayer, especially as they begin to follow Jesus' pattern for prayer in The Lord's Prayer. If you have questions about prayer, this sermon will be a practical help to you in growing in your prayer life.

Sermon: Luke 11:2 - How to Pray, Part 2. When we come into the Lord's presence for prayer, what's the first thing on our minds? Is it a trial we are enduring? Maybe it's a particular temptation pressing hard upon us. Or perhaps we are concerned about health or our daily provisions. Maybe we are aware of our sinfulness and our need for forgiveness. Jesus, however, instructs us how to pray, and the focus of our prayers should never begin with ourselves. So, how should our prayers begin? Where should our focus be when we pray? That's the subject of this week's sermon. We continue our study of the Lord's Prayer with this sermon entitled "How to Pray, Part 2."

Jan 24, 2016

Sermon: Luke 11:2 - How to Pray, Part 1. When we come to the Lord in prayer, what really matters? Is it the time? The place? The length of time we spend in prayer? Having our eyes open or closed? Should we kneel, stand, sit, or lie prostrate on the floor? What about content? What should we say when we come to the Lord in prayer? In this week's sermon, we look at all of these questions from Luke 11:2. Jesus taught His disciples how to pray, and what He emphasized first might surprise you. Listen to this week's sermon to learn more.

Jan 17, 2016

Sermon: Luke 11:1 - Lord, Teach Us to Pray. Saying a prayer is a simple thing to do, so simple even a child can do it. But what about sustaining a vibrant life of prayer? For most Christians, prayer is exceedingly difficult, especially when it comes to cultivating a deep, enjoyable prayer life that is consistent over the long term. These struggles are not unique to us. The disciples themselves understood the difficulty of prayer, and they asked the Lord for help. In this sermon on Luke 11:1, we see why the disciples asked Jesus to teach them to pray. This sermon also helps us see our need for the Lord to teach us what it means to pray in the Spirit according to the truth.
