Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday morning’s message, “The Acceptable Sacrifice” based on Luke 23:33-46:

  • Sin separates man from God.
  • Before the crucifixion, this was represented by the Veil of the Temple.
  • Only the High Priest was allowed into the Holy of Holies.
  • At Jesus’ death, the veil was torn in two, from top to bottom.
  • Jesus’ death was the acceptable sacrifice to God.
  • No more would the blood of goats and bulls be needed to atone for sin.
  • Jesus’ blood would forevermore atone for sin.
  • Forgiveness is available to all who would believe this.

Here are some “Sound Bites” from Sunday morning’s message “Savior” based on Luke 2:1-20:

  • The angels could hardly wait for the announcement of Christ’s birth so they could start praising God.
  • Jesus’ birth is the fulfillment of a long awaited promise.
  • Jesus is God’s “peace offering” to mankind.

Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday morning’s sermon, “God’s Bail-Out Plan” based on Acts 4:8-12:

  • The economy is in crisis.  We got that way by the irresponsible actions of many.
  • The government has tried/is trying multiple “bailout plans” to rescue the economy.
  • Two of the bailout plans seem to have failed.  The third may not do much either.
  • Our spiritual condition is in crisis.  We got that we because we sin.
  • We have tried multiple ways to get ourselves out of this mess, but nothing seems to work.
  • God decided that HE would take charge of the situation and bail us out.
  • God became Flesh and dwelt among us as Jesus Christ.
  • Jesus died for us on the cross, taking our punishment upon Him.
  • If we accept His act on our behalf, we are “bailed out” of our sin debt.
  • If we do not accept Jesus’ act on the cross, we must face the full wrath of God.

Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday morning’s sermon, “Straddling Fences” based on I Kings 18:17-39:

  • True followers of Jesus Christ can expect to be ridiculed, if not persecuted.
  • God can have no rivals.
  • Get off of the fence of indecision and commit to God.
  • God has proved that He IS God and is worthy of our worship.
  • When we hesitate between worshiping God and something else, we do not bring honor to either.
  • You can’t have it both ways;  either belong to the world or belong to God!

Here are some “sound bites” from yesterday morning’s sermon, “The Cost of Sacrifice” based on II Samuel 24:

  • Innocent people can suffer the consequences of your sin.
  • Your sin requires payment from God.
  • David couldn’t use the gift of someone to make his burnt offering; he had to pay it himself.
  • We are blessed because Jesus has paid the sacrifice for our sin, if we only accept Him.
  • Any sacrifice we make will not be good enough for God.  Jesus made (and was) the perfect sacrifice.
