Grace and Peace

Grace and Peace is the title of my first sermon in Galatians this coming Sunday. I love what John Stott says about these two words:

"Although 'grace' and 'peace' are common monosyllables, they are pregnant with theological substance. In fact, they summarize Paul's gospel of salvation. The nature of salvation is peace, or reconciliation - peace with God, peace with men, peace within. The source of salvation is grace, God's free favor, irrespective of any human merit or works, His loving-kindness to the undeserving. And this grace and peace flow from the Father and Son together."

Can the Gospel Set us Free?

God-willing, this Sunday I will begin preaching through the book of Galatians. I love this book. In this book Paul lays out the reality that the gospel, properly understood and applied, leads to freedom. This is the reality of being justified in Christ. And I am really excited about preaching this book! If you are close to Cypress Lake Baptist Church we would love to have you.

To Know Christ and to Make Him Known

This morning I preached my 26th sermon in the series titled A Display of God's Glory. I enjoyed the series on the church, but am excited about starting the book of Galatians this next Sunday. If you're interested, you can hear this morning's sermon here:

Sunday Sermon

For some reason our Sunday PM sermon didn't record again. However, Sunday morning did. In the morning I preached from John 4:1-26 with a hope that we would take seriously God's expectations for our worship. You can listen here:

Let the Children Come

I just finished a three week focus on how we ought to seek to point the children of our church to Christ.  My focus was it starts in the home, the church assists the parents, and the children are expected to obey and honor their parents. You can listen to the three sermons here:
