Follow Jesus, Mixed Motives and All  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 6: 1–21

Hope in Ashes  Click here Click title to view sermon Joel 2: 1–17
Summary: The genius of Ash Wednesday is that we can’t make something grand and hopeful unless we start with some ashes. We have to work with some ashes -- all that has gone before us in life. But nature uses ashes to restore the soil. Repentance is the spiritual quality that ashes represent. When we confess to God that we are not all we ought to be, we are laying the bed of ashes in which our souls can grow.

Choose Your Reward Wisely  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 6: 1–21
Matthew 6: 1–18 for LFM
Summary: The ability to practice quiet piety depends upon our trust in our heavenly Father to reward us. Without that trust, we will seek the world’s praise instead of God’s approval. Spiritual disciplines require that we walk by faith, not by sight, waiting for God’s reward.
