Art and the Gospel (Part 1)

January 10th, 2021

Jacob Davis kicks off his class about art and the Gospel. In these weeks, he will explore how Scripture presents art, beauty, and imagination, how the arts have shaped church history, how the church has shaped art history, and how Christians can engage the world through the arts today. Jacob will introduce us to Christian thinkers and artists across the centuries, dive into their stories, experience their creativity, and let them inspire us and point us to the beauty of the gospel.

One Pleasing Son

January 10th, 2021

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Genesis 1, in which the world is spoken into existence, and John 1, in which Jesus is baptized. We don't have to create ourselves in a way pleasing to God. Our creator says he is pleased with Jesus, and this pleasing, earned by Christ, is given to you for free.

Genesis 1, John 1


Wise Men and Christmas Promises

January 3rd, 2021

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Ephesians 1, in which Paul describes promises God gives to his people, and Matthew 2, in which wise men visit Jesus. Jesus' coming to earth is what occasions all of God's gifts to us. He is our Good News.

Ephesians 1, Matthew 2


Jesus Takes Your Chains

December 27th, 2020

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Galatians 3 and 4, in which Paul tells Christians that they are "no longer under a disciplinarian." This is Good News! In Christ, we are free!

Galatians 3, Galatians 4


Christmas: Another Just Another Sermon

December 24th, 2020

On Christmas Eve, the Rev. Nick Lannon preaches another sermon celebrating Jesus' coming into the world to save sinners. That's what the incarnation--Christmas--is all about.

Titus 3, Luke 2


Grinches, Whos, and Jesus

December 20th, 2020

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on the occasion of Grace Church's Christmas pageant. Dr. Seuss' Grinch needed an enlarged heart to turn into a Who. We, on the other hand, get something so much better: a brand-new heart and a resurrected life.

Ephesians 2, Galatians 2, Ezekiel 36


A Prophecy Fulfilled

December 13th, 2020

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Isaiah 61, in which the prophet predicts the coming of the Messiah. Six hundred years later, Jesus arrives and claims that the prophecy is fulfilled in him. He hasn't come to condemn the world, but to save it, and you.

Isaiah 61


A Repenting Life

December 6th, 2020

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on 2 Peter 3, in which the apostle tells the people to wait in righteousness, and Mark 1, in which John the Baptist announces the arrival of Jesus Christ. The Good News about waiting in repentance is that our repentance is always met--on the cross--with redemption.

2 Peter 3, Mark 1
