“Because God Said So!”

Third Sunday in Lent, March 27th, 2011

Delivered by Deacon BJ Armstrong


"Forensic medicine" is what they call the task of legally determining the cause of death of a victim. "Forensic" means the legal determination based solely on the facts or evidence by an authorized agent. Today's scripture proclaims "forensic righteousness," that is, God legally declaring (vindicating) sinners as righteous solely on the basis of the evidence of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ in our place. No one is saved or damned solely with regard to his works, good or bad, but on the basis of faith in, or the rejection of Jesus Christ, His passion, death and resurrection. Confused? Recalling your Baptism, the final correct answer to the question, "How do you know you are saved?" is, "Because God said so!"

“Promises! Promises!”

Second Sunday In Lent-March 20th, 2011

Delivered by Pastor Ronald Boelte


A promise is a commitment, a contract by a person to another person to do or not to do something. To "break" a promise is to fail to follow through on your otherwise well-intended word. Broken promises can hurt or even kill relationships. A wonderful thing about God is not only that He has made great, important promises, but that He has never and will never break His promises. Today, the proof of God's faithfulness is in the promises He made to Abram thousands of years before the fulfillment of those promises in the cross, death, and resurrection of Jesus, and in your coming to faith in Christ. By faith in Jesus, "all the promises of God find their Yes in Him" (2 Corinthians 1:20), and we become not only children of Abraham, the true Israelites, but the children of God! In Christ all our former broken promises and sin are forgiven and taken away and we are given the sure hope in all the promises of God.

“Light Into The Wilderness”

First Sunday In Lent-March 13th, 2011

Delivered by BJ Armstrong


In John Lennon’s famous song, Imagine, he asks us to imagine no heaven, no hell, no countries,” and no religion, too.” According to the Bible the former Beatle was accurately describing the work of Satan, sin, and death, which is the absence of God. On this First Sunday in Lent we are encouraged in our Lenten journey of repentance by hearing of the first thing Jesus did for us after His Baptism by John: He confronted Satan’s darkness, desert, and death and bound him until His ultimate victory in His own death and resurrection. Because of Christ’s victory in the wilderness, on the cross, and in His ascension, Christ leads us through no darker rooms than He went through before. Jesus Christ is the Light of the world, the light no darkness can overcome.

“The Transfiguration of our Lord”

Transfiguration Sunday-March 6th, 2011

Delivered by Pastor Ronald Boelte


On the Mountain of Transfiguration we are told that Jesus’ face shone like the sun. We can only look at the sun indirectly because the brightness causes us to close our eyes or turn away. As Jesus’ divinity shone through His humanity, the brightness was such that it forced Peter, James, and John to fall on their faces and avert their gaze in terror. Though we might be able to view the sun by peering through darkened glass, the only way to view the Son of God is through the prophetic Word and eyes of faith.
