Sermons about Celebration
Luke 15:11-32 "The Parable of the Lost Son" paints for us a picture of the character of God!
The Parable of the Wedding Feast reveals a God who is determined to celebrate his Son. And, a God who extends a gracious invitation to the world to join along in the celebration.
Pastor Rudy Bropleh closes the Mountaintop Experience series on Easter Sunday with PRAISING! He chooses Luke 24:1-10 and 1 Chronicles 29:10-13 and offers 3 key points in response to the question, "Why Should You Praise?" 1) You should praise because PRAISE is a form of affirmation; 2) PRAISE is a means of liberation; and 3) PRAISE is an act of celebration. Tune in to the entire series - Mountaintop Experience with PACKING, PRESSING, PERSERVERING, and finally...PRAISING!
At Christmas, we love to celebrate the fact that the Word became flesh and lived among us, and so we should. But, as Tom Wright wrote, if you take away Christmas, you lose a couple of chapters in Matthew and Luke but if you remove Easter and the Resurrection, you lose the whole New Testament! Easter is the most glorious event in the Christian calendar and it is the source of much joy. What are you celebrating this Easter?
How you feel about Easter says a lot about what you really think Easter is about. Easter is a break, it is a sign of our sin and a sign of our salvation.
In Part 3 of the Mountaintop Experience series, Pastor Rudy Bropleh references scripture from John 12:12-19 and Hebrews 10:36 to emphasize the are of PERSERVERING. The following key points are offered as guidelines for you to know how you can perservere: 1) In the midst of problems, stay true to your PURPOSE; 2) Keep saying, "My midnight will change into MORNING LIGHT"; 3) Don't allow a short-term distraction deny you a long-term CELEBRATION; AND 4) Desire the PRIZE more than you despise the pain.
The crowd that gathered on the first day of the week to welcome Jesus as 'King'--reflective of Zechariah's prophecy-- and the children who continue the "Hosannas!" into the temple provide us an example of worship. The emphasis of this Palm Sunday sermon is the response and nature of that worship and its instruction for modern Christians. Worship is celebration for what Christ has done for us. Let us examine the story again and learn to worship 'he who comes in the name of the Lord!"
Pastor Gregg Matte leads a journey through the Book of Acts.
Those who welcomed into Jesus had no idea what was coming that week. Still, they were right to celebrate the arrival of the King.
