The Day of the Lord (Sermon Audio)

The Day of the Lord

As Christians, we believe there will come a time where God will intervene personally in history to bring about His perfect justice. We know this as the Day of the Lord — a great and yet terrible day as we are among those in need of forgiveness.

In thinking of the injustice of Ferguson, we see that God calls us to engage injustice now because He cares about justice and wants to use us to right it. But God also calls us to rest in knowing that ultimately it will be His justice that will reign, which frees us to seek reconciliation even before there is justice.

Listen to the audio below as Josh explores the Day of the Lord and its implications for how we should approach the injustice of Ferguson and the larger injustices of the world.

Joseph’s Final Exam

Joseph's Final Exam

Joseph’s journey from being sold into slavery to becoming second in command to Pharaoh culminates in a very difficult test.  We see that Joseph has been, in a way, in God’s classroom this entire time, and it’s led to this climax of whether Joseph will pass the test or not.

As we consider the “tests” we face in our life, listen to Pastor Bum’s message from Genesis 44, below.

Fighting for Forgiveness

Keep Calm and Pay Me Back
If someone pays for your meal when you’re out with them (and they’re not family or the person you’re dating), you likely feel obligated to pay them back in some way. Or if someone gives us a birthday gift, we likely make note of it so we remember to give *them* a gift on their birthday.

In the same way, we often operate on the notion that we need to somehow earn or pay back the forgiveness God offers us.  This is one of the persistent lies that keeps us from going to Jesus when we sin — a lie that we need to fight against in seeking forgiveness.  We see what this fight for forgiveness looks like through the story of Peter in John 21. Listen to Pastor Bum’s sermon, below!

Upside Down and Inside Out: Jesus' Sermon on the Mount

Snippet: “As I prepared for tonight, I kept coming back to Jesus’ words. I can’t get around his reminder that they are my brothers and sisters, whether I feel that way or not. I can’t escape his repeated instruction to forgive them, to let them off of the hook, because He let’s me off the hook all the time. If I want mercy from Him, I am invited to show mercy – over and over and over again.”
