Disarming the Powers

Posted in Easter, Cross, death of Christ by LifeSpringChurch on April 18th, 2017

This sermon is about the substance of our Easter hope.  It's central idea is the Jesus did far more than just forgiving our sins.  In fact, he destroyed the power of evil in the world and gave us freedom to live as God originally created us.

Passover

Posted in crucifixion, Easter, Cross, death of Christ by LifeSpringChurch on April 10th, 2017

This sermon comes from Matthew 26:17-30 which is the account of the Passover meal that Jesus ate with his disciples prior to his death.  That Jesus chose Passover rather than the Day of Atonement, for example, is an indication of how Jesus envisioned his mission and the meaning of his death.  The sermon explores this idea.

Cleopas and a friend were walking the lonely road from Jerusalem, the Cross, and defeat to their home in Emmaus, 7 miles away.  On the way they were joined by a stranger who engaged them in conversation about the event that had just transpired.  What they didn't know was that it was Jesus.  This sermon explores that conversation.  Luke 24:13-34 is the text.

No Chirpy Ending

Posted in Mark, Easter, Cross by LifeSpringChurch on April 5th, 2015

This Easter sermon comes from the short ending of Mark 16 (verses 1-8) and it takes a look at the fear of the disciples and how the cross often leads through fear and difficulty.  The ending of Mark is so abrupt there is a tendency to want to "fix" it, and this may be the explanation for the longer ending of Mark which was added by some later scribe who thought that the ending needed to be rescued.
