Pastor Kent Jackson
 
First Reading:  1 Timothy 6:6-19 NRSV
Second Reading:  Luke 16:19-31 NRSV
Sermon Title: “The Time is Now!”
 
As the repentant thief, who was crucified next to Jesus, demonstrates salvation is available right up to our dying moment. The rich man in Luke 16 waited too long, and therefore his eternity was sealed. As long as we have life and breath the choice of spending eternity with Jesus is ours. As sinners, we all have the opportunity to confess our sin, accept the Lord’s forgiveness and receive salvation by putting our faith in the death and resurrection of Jesus. The question about our eternal destination is one we should all consider.

First Reading:  Amos 8:4-7 NRSV
Second Reading:  Luke 16:1-13 NRSV
Sermon Title: “Choose Your Master”
 
The scripture story from Luke 16 reminds us that we need to make choices. Verse 13 states that you can not serve God AND wealth. This leaves us with the decision to choose which we will serve. Will our words and actions demonstrate our commitment to wealth or our devotion to the Lord?

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.” — 2 Corinthians 1: 2-4

Pastor Kent Jackson
 
First Reading:  Jeremiah 18:1-11 NRSV
Second Reading:  Deuteronomy 30:15-20 NRSV
Sermon Title: “Making Good Choices”
 
Some people see a vengeful God in the Old Testament and a benevolent, merciful God in the New Testament. This week’s passages from Jeremiah 18 and Deuteronomy 30 presents us with a different reality where God’s treatment of humanity is in direct response to our faithfulness to the Lord.
Come and meet the benevolent God of the Old Testament, a God whose mind is changed by the behavior of those who are created by God.

As a child, sitting at the table is one place where I was reminded to mind my manners. Jesus uses time at the table to teach others about all manners of Christian living. This Sunday we will have an opportunity to explore three teachings of Jesus as he sat at the table.

This Sunday we will discover several intentional actions which a Christian can take to be ready for action.
