Amazing Grace - Ephesians 2:1-9

Since this is a sermon series on the gospel, I would like to point out that my text contains the whole gospel message in just six words.

And you can share it with anyone you meet.The six words come in three sets of two words each—the first from verse 1, the second from verse 4, and the third from verse 8. You were—verse 1But God—verse 4Th More

How Will You Be Remembered? - Genesis 50 & Hebrews 11

One of the first prayers I learned to pray was my bedtime prayer. I do not remember how old I was when I first learned it, but I know I was just a young boy.

Sola Gratia: By Grace Alone - Titus 3:7

I’d like to begin this sermon with a thought-provoking quotation from Kim Riddlebarger. He works with Michael Horton in an organization called CURE: Christians United for Reformation and Evangelism. When we use the term “grace alone”, what we mean is that our salvation from the wrath of God–our deliverance from hell–is because of something good in God, and not because of anything good in us.These words t More
