What Difference Does It Make?

Posted in Jesus, Christ by LifeSpringChurch on December 29th, 2015

This sermon is the last sermon in the Advent cycle, and it concerns itself with the kind of life which comes from being clothed with Christ (Colossians 3:12).  The sermon is built on Paul's theology (Colossians 1:15-20) in which he describes the being and character of Christ.

Rejoice Always

Posted in joy, rejoice by LifeSpringChurch on December 14th, 2015

This sermon comes from Philippians 4:4-7 in which Paul tells the Philippian church to "rejoice always."  Paul believed that joy can exist despite the external circumstances of our lives as evidenced by the fact that he was calling the Philippians to joy despite the fact that he was in prison.  With war in Syria, the rise of Isis, global warming, and a host of other ills, we can still rejoice because of the God we serve.

Is Anything Too Hard for the Lord?

Posted in Advent by LifeSpringChurch on December 1st, 2015

This sermon takes its text from Jeremiah 33 as God tells Jeremiah to purchase land in a city about to be overrun and destroyed by invading armies.  The hope and expectation of Jeremiah serve as a perfect backdrop to talk about Advent.

Turning On A Switch

Posted in greed, generosity, thankfulness by LifeSpringChurch on December 1st, 2015

This sermon takes a look at the subject of gratitude.  In light of the fact that Thanksgiving Day is less than one week away, it is good to remember the importance of being thankful and what a thankless society looks like.
