Series: LOVED-13
Duration: 42 mins 46 secs
In his first recorded letter to the Corinthians, Paul addresses various issues with a fractured church. One of their great battles surrounds the misuse of spiritual gifts. Rather than building up the body of Christ, they're using them to build up their reputation. Paul interrupts his discussion on spiritual gifts to get to the heart of the matter: love. This opening sermon in the series looks at love as the mortar to make any gift or effort have lasting impact. Love is leverage.

Everywhere you go these days you hear the phrases, "Stay healthy" or "Be safe." I started tacking on the exhortation, "Stay hopeful." Then I realized, hope is not an afterthought but the core to Christian living in critical times. This sermon traces the theme of hope -- a fixed past, promised future, and God's faithfulness amid present fears -- through the book of Romans. It encourages us to refocus.

The apostle Paul was a theologian of the Cross. Jesus's scandalous death disrupted his life. He centered much of his preaching to declaring the wisdom and benefits of the Cross. This message traces the theme of the Cross through Paul's writing, encouraging us to appreciate Jesus's costly victory.

Duration: 35 mins 44 secs
The Book of James touches on some timely themes about caring for others. The brother of Jesus writes a scattered church facing hardship. He implores them to put their faith into action by showing love to the most endangered among them. Faith is not merely self-reflection, but godly action, necessary in times of need.

Series: Leverage
Duration: 43 mins 19 secs
God has given each of a platforms to leverage our influence for the benefit of others. We have platforms at work as we elevate our coworkers; at home as we elevate our children; at school where we elevate our classmates; at church where we elevate others believers. God wants us to use our platforms to uplift others not exalt ourselves. This sermon traces Jesus's method of platforming his disciples whose ministry became critical after his ascension.

God gives each of us a set of passions, experiences, skills, and abilities. Furthermore, we each have distinct opportunities to use these gifts (or talents) to uplift others. God-given gifts are not a bragging right, but a stewardship matter. This sermon will showcase spiritual gifts and other talents, imploring the church to leverage them for others in the church and everyday life.

John receives his seventh and final letter; it's headed to Laodicea. Of all the messages, this is the most scathing. The believers in Laodicea have little to commend. Their arrogance and independence has made Jesus sick to his stomach. He offers them a reality check. They're not as great as they think. Not even close. Their wealth is a shame. Their deeds are a shame. But Jesus is not finished with them yet. The letter serves as a rebuke and invitation to reject the plush life and return to Christ.

John receives his sixth letter; it's headed to Philadelphia. Not only is this the youngest of the seven cities, it is the weakest. Earthquakes and aftershocks and government bailouts have hurt them. Fortunately, followers of Jesus have remained true despite their vulnerability. And why? Well, because spiritual strength is less about personal and corporate power than siding with Jesus. This sermon will put you in touch with one of the bigger myths of our age: physical strength equals impact for Jesus.

John receives his fifth letter; it's headed to Sardis. This city has seen livelier days, but it still rides on its reputation. Well, that is until Jesus exposes them. Their lack of evangelism and watered down faith have soiled them. This letter is a call to change, to repent, to pay closer attention to Jesus. They don't have to fear his coming if they learn to enjoy his company. This message will challenge us to curb the temptation to coast on our reputation, and learn to practice the presence of Jesus.

John receives his fourth letter; it's headed to Thyratira. This city boasted many trade guilds. Buying, selling, and trading goods may have been dependent upon one's willingness to join an idolatrous feast. Sometimes the price we pay to do business can be lethal. Jesus calls us to stay faithful. This no different today. In face, we live in a consumer society, where everything from marriage to church to God, gets turned into a commodity that helps meet personal needs and shape personal identity. Buyers today must beware lest they lose their souls.
