Good News for the Poor

Posted in gospel, good news by LifeSpringChurch on January 28th, 2019

Good news is not "good" to everyone.  This sermon looks at the ways that what Jesus considered good news can be offensive news to the rich, powerful, and privileged.  The text comes from Luke 4:14-21.

What to do NOW

Posted in gospel, good news by LifeSpringChurch on September 24th, 2018

Third in a series about the Good News, this sermon takes a longer look at what the Bible says about God's work to redeem and reunify the Creation.   The text comes from Philippians 3:12-21 which concludes, "He will take our weak mortal bodies and change them into glorious bodies....using the same power with which he will bring everything under his control."

Inadequate God

Posted in gospel, good news by LifeSpringChurch on September 17th, 2018

This sermon comes from Romans 8:38-39 which, in Good News fashion, speaks about the love of God which is more powerful than the forces of Hell or any other evil force.  Compare this to those views of God and his love which are inaequate, such as the vengeful God or the meek and mild God, and therefore not good news to those to whom we speak of God.  The sermon challenges us to think of God as the one who sent his son, defeated sin and death, and is now finishing his work of redemption.

Pharaoh’s Ten Commandments

Posted in God, kingdom, good news by LifeSpringChurch on July 16th, 2018

This sermon comes from Exodus 5:1-6:1 and it is about the conflict between Pharaoh (Thutmose III) and the people of Israel who were being held captive in Egypt.  The sermon contrasts the demands of Pharaoh against the laws given by God to Israel in the Ten Commandments.  The premise of the sermon is that the laws that God gives us to govern our lives as his people are far lighter and benevolent toward us than the onerous commands of Pharaoh.

A Life of Honoring Christ

This sermon comes from Philippians 1:20-30. It explores what it means to be a person who places lives in a Christ-centered way. Paul tells the Philippian church to "walk" or live in a way that honors Christ.

Exodus 19:1-8 is the text for this sermon.  The sermon has the Exodus as its core event and discusses how, after the Fall, mankind has constantly been moving away from God. Nevertheless, God has persevered in seeking to return mankind to full relationship with him.

They Begged Us to Leave

Posted in gospel, good news, Paul by LifeSpringChurch on April 24th, 2016

This sermon finishes a short series on the book of Acts.  Acts 16:11-40 is the text, and the subject is the way that Paul, Silas, and other church leaders were transformed by the mission that God had given to the church to move westward.  The story of courage, passion, and intention is inspiring to modern-day disciples of Jesus.

What is the Gospel?

Posted in , good news by LifeSpringChurch on December 9th, 2014

John the Baptist began his ministry announcing the "the beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, son of God."  This sermon explores what gospel means and whether the church's message in the past has actually been good news (or gospel).
