Sermon

Remember Who You Really Are

January 5th, 2020

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Ephesians 1, in which Paul greets that church as though it's full of perfect disciples of Christ. But there's another truth: they're pretty profound sinners, too. Paul calls them to live a life worthy of their calling by reminding them of the Good News: their new (and true) identity in Christ.

Ephesians 1

Sermon

In Light of the Gospel

December 29th, 2019

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Isaiah 61-62, in which the prophet promises that God will be at work in the world today. Christmas has come and the savior Jesus has arrived...so now what? Well, God will keep his grace coming!

Isaiah 61, Isaiah 62

Sermon

The War is Won at Christmas

December 24th, 2019

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a Christmas sermon, focusing on Isaiah 9. The great wars of life, between men and women, people and animals, the way things are and the way they ought to be, and even the war between you and God...these wars are all won at Christmas, when savior is born to us.

Isaiah 9

Sermon

Engraved on God's Hands

December 22nd, 2019

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Isaiah 49, in which God promises never to forget his people. He takes that promise so seriously that, many years later at a place called The Skull, he'll forget--for a moment--his beloved son...all so he can remember you.

Isaiah 49

Sermon

God is Your Home

December 15th, 2019

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Isaiah 35, in which the prophet describes a holy road, upon which God's redeemed people are going home. But how will they get there? The Messiah, Jesus Christ, will come and bring them.

Isaiah 35

Sermon

Shoot and Root

December 8th, 2019

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Isaiah 11, in which the Messiah is described both as a root emerging from the stump of Jesse and as the root of Jesse. This shows the Good News that Jesus is both God and man, both righteous enough to bear the sin of the world and eligible to stand in our place.

Isaiah 11

Sermon

The Mountain of the Lord

December 1st, 2019

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Isaiah 2, in which the people of God are described as streaming up the mountain of the Lord, excited to receive his law. How did a sinful nation reach this point? It is by the announcement of the Good News, that their sins, which are like scarlet, will be made white as snow.

Isaiah 2

Sermon

One Christ, Two Kings

November 24th, 2019

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon for Christ the King Sunday, on Colossians 1 and Luke 23, which present Jesus as two very different kinds of kings: one who wears a golden crown as Lord of Heaven and Earth, and one who wears a thorny crown as redeemer of the world.
