Series: Go & Tell
In this sermon we find why these words matter. When we lose a loved one it hurts. In fact, it’s hard to imagine experiencing a greater feeling of loss or pain. If Jesus really loves us, why do we have to experience a pain like this? Then we read these words… “Jesus wept.”
Mary and Martha wondered if Jesus really loved them (and Lazarus). After all, when Jesus heard Lazarus was sick and instead of going straight to Lazarus, he waited 2 more days. In that time, Lazarus had already died. He had been buried in the tomb for 4 days. Did Jesus even care? “Jesus wept.”
His weeping gives us an insight in to the nature and character of God. Jesus wasn’t weeping because he was powerless to do anything. He wept because Mary and Martha were so deeply troubled.
What we find next in this story is a proclamation of the power of Jesus. It is evident Mary and Martha knew Jesus could have prevented Lazarus from dying. But, Jesus wanted them know a truth about Him that was far greater. He is the Resurrection and the Life! Jesus rose Lazarus from the dead!
In this sermon from John 11 we find how we should respond in death. When others die and when we face death’s door. Compassion first… just like Jesus.

Series: 1 Corinthians - Kingdom Culture
Resurrection means more to a Christian than we can possibly put in to words. In fact, the Resurrection is the foundation for everything the Christian believes.
But what if Jesus never did raise from the dead?
Paul says it a little different. We are wasting our time if, in fact, the resurrection never happened!
That’s strong language.
But He did raise from the dead. And there’s plenty of evidence for the empty tomb.
So what does it all mean? What does it resurrection mean for the believer?
This sermon dives in to the reality of the empty tomb, as well as what resurrection looks like for believers.

Series: Simply Jesus
It’s hard to share Jesus with other people when we’re caught up in our failures. I mean, you go to work and you’re like, “Hey, why don’t you come to Bible Study with me? Why don’t you come to church?” Then you’re like, “But they know me! They know what words came out of my mouth! They know the attitude I had last week! They know!” Yeah… THEY do. But are you sharing Jesus with them? Or are you sharing your perfectionism with them? Listen, we all fall short of the glory of God. We’re sharing Jesus with them. Jesus is the ONLY answer!
