Worship and Doubt

Posted in doubt, faith, resurrection by LifeSpringChurch on April 30th, 2014

This sermon takes its text from Matthew 28:16-20 in which Matthew tells his reader that even though the disciples worshiped Jesus after his resurrection, some of them still had lingering doubts.  This sermon looks at the role that doubt plays in faith.

An Angel of the Lord

Posted in Mary, angel, Joseph by LifeSpringChurch on April 22nd, 2014

This sermon takes its text from Matthew 28:1-10 and it assumes that the angel that announced Jesus' resurrection is the same one who told Mary she was to be mother to Messiah.  The sermon is a reverie by that angel on the life of Jesus and the victory of the Resurrection.

This sermon comes from Matthew 25:1-13 which is the Parable of the Wise and Foolish Bridesmaids.  The text is part of a larger context in which Jesus talks about the importance of being prepared for the future Coming of the Kingdom.
