Next One Up  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 4: 12–23
Summary: There’s a saying in the National Football League — “next man up.” It means you should always be ready to move up and replace someone injured on the field. Herod’s arrest of John the Baptist does not extinguish the work of God. Jesus is the next one up and gets to work. And though he is irreplaceable, Jesus calls disciples to be the next ones up. Are you ready to be the next one up for whatever your congregation needs?

The Spirit Let the Devil Make Me Do It!  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 4: 1–11
Summary: Temptation does not come from God, but there are times when God’s Spirit will lead us to the place where temptation happens, to the one in whose hands temptation has been placed. Our temptation, usually, is not to what is evil, but to something that is in and of itself good. Temptation comes to us in four guises.

The Making of a Company  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 4: 12–23
Summary: God chooses to work through a body of people, a company of disciples. Even though each of us has come to Christ by his or her own independent choice, and even though each of us must always do private business with God, the church isn’t a collection of rugged individualists. It’s a company. It is God’s own method, and it only works if we are willing to take our place in the body of Christ.

Settling the Issue in Advance  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 4: 1–11
Summary:  In the wilderness, Jesus is tested around three issues: self-interest, trust and loyalty. This time of spiritual preparation was the launching pad for Jesus’ life and ministry. Current followers of Jesus need to settle these three issues in their own lives in order to fulfill God’s mission today.

Dropping Our Nets  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 4: 12–23
Summary: In a world that often does not take the church seriously, God calls us to be the church. In responding to that call, we enable God to shine his light through us into the darkness of the world. Our response enables us to grow into spiritual maturity.

Being Honest About Lent  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 4: 1–11
Summary: Lent has its origins in Jesus’ wilderness experience. Human nature and our contemporary culture encourage us to make Lent easy and manageable. Our call, on this first Sunday of Lent, is to see Lent as a wilderness where we can meet God in new, profound ways. Only then can we hope that angels will minister to us, as they did to Jesus.
