Sunday Sermon Message: We call this Sunday Trinity Sunday. And that’s a word that is a deal killer for a lot of people when it comes to Christianity because they just don’t get the Trinity part. So today we celebrate Trinity, the one true God, of three persons. Ir-regardless if we understand it or not, there’s a lot of things that we’ll never understand until the day comes when he shows it to us. Know this, that God sent his only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, into the world so that we may have life. And thanks be to God, he is the God that he is and not one in our image, or in our management.

(Gospel John 3:1-17) You Must Be Born Again 1 Now there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. This man came to Jesus by night and said to him, “Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher come from God, for no one can do these signs that you do unless God is with him.” Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.” Nicodemus said to him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?” Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.” Nicodemus said to him, “How can these things be?” 10 Jesus answered him, “Are you the teacher of Israel and yet you do not understand these things? 11 Truly, truly, I say to you, we speak of what we know, and bear witness to what we have seen, but you do not receive our testimony. 12 If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how can you believe if I tell you heavenly things? 13 No one has ascended into heaven except he who descended from heaven, the Son of Man. 14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, 15 that whoever believes in him may have eternal life.

For God So Loved the World 16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. (Gospel John 3:1-17) ESV

Sunday Sermon Message: Jesus knew long ago that the Christians would be persecuted and people would hate us because of him and that we would profess that he is the one and only way to salvation. And that’s the reason the Holy Spirit came into the world. Not to be a comforter, to bring us to the point that we feel good and that we’re willing to go along with what the world says, but to stand up and to be bold in Christ Jesus. And even when they hate us because of Him, we still stand. And if we have to, we stand alone. Except for one thing, we always have the Holy Spirit. Wherever we are, whatever we do, God is with us in the Holy Spirit. May He embolden you and may you know that Christ Jesus is your Lord and Savior. And He sent His Holy Spirit into the world to hold you true to Him in Christ Jesus.

(Gospel John 15:26-27) The Hatred of the World 26 “But when the Helper comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth, who proceeds from the Father, he will bear witness about me. 27 And you also will bear witness, because you have been with me from the beginning.(Gospel John 15:26-27) ESV

(John 16:4b-15) The Work of the Holy Spirit 4b“I did not say these things to you from the beginning, because I was with you. But now I am going to him who sent me, and none of you asks me, ‘Where are you going?’ But because I have said these things to you, 4sorrow has filled your heart. Nevertheless, I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you. And when he comes, he will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment: concerning sin, because they do not believe in me; 10 concerning righteousness, because I go to the Father, and you will see me no longer; 11 concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged. 12 “I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. 13 When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. 14 He will glorify me, for he will take what is mine and declare it to you. 15 All that the Father has is mine; therefore I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you. (Gospel John 16:4b-15) ESV

Sunday Sermon Message: Jesus Christ is telling us to go out into the world and to bring the good news to others. Not everybody that lives around us knows who Jesus Christ is. They may have heard of him but they don’t know him. And hopefully as we go out into the world so they can learn who he is and they too can have the unity and the joy of knowing Jesus Christ, this Lord and Savior. Now he wants us to be joyful in that, to be united in the message that we bring so that others may know him as well. In Christ Jesus, there is everlasting life.

(Gospel John 17:11-19) The High Priestly Prayer 11b {Jesus lifted up his eyes to heaven and said.}Holy Father, keep them in your name, which you have given me, that they may be one, even as we are one. 12 While I was with them, I kept them in your name, which you have given me. I have guarded them, and not one of them has been lost except the son of destruction, that the Scripture might be fulfilled. 13 But now I am coming to you, and these things I speak in the world, that they may have my joy fulfilled in themselves. 14 I have given them your word, and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 15 I do not ask that you take them out of the world, but that youikeep them from the evil one. 16 They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 17Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth. 18 As you sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world. 19And for their sake I consecrate myself, that they also may be sanctified in truth. (Gospel John 17:11b-19) ESV

Sunday Sermon Message: Jesus said a new commandment; I give you to love what another as I have loved you and he described that love makes it to where you are a servant to others not because you feel like they deserve but because Christ has commanded you to do it and that reminds us of the forgiveness of the love that we have in our hearts comes from Jesus Christ it’s not even something that we have conjured up or anything, but he has blessed us with. Now we just need to use the blessing that is given us. Love is wonderful, it is forgiving, it has mercy, it has grace, all over and that’s who we are called to be, in Christ Jesus and him alone.

(Gospel John 15:9-17) I Am the True Vine {Jesus said, As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love. 10 If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. 11 These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full. 12 “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. 14 You are my friends if you do what I command you. 15 No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you. 16 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you. 17 These things I command you, so that you will love one another. (Gospel John 15:9-17) ESV

Sunday Sermon Message: Let our love of be true and let our love be founded in Christ Jesus, not some subjective affection that we may have that comes in those, but the guaranteed, the solid rock, Christ Himself. And with that we shall stand for all eternity in Christ Jesus

(Gospel John 10:11-18) So Jesus Again said to Them 11 I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. 12 He who is a hired hand and not a shepherd, who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees, and the wolf snatches them and scatters them. 13 He flees because he is a hired hand and cares nothing for the sheep. 14 I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me, 15 just as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep. 16 And I have other sheep that are not of this fold. I must bring them also, and they will listen to my voice. So there will be one flock, one shepherd. 17 For this reason the Father loves me, because I lay down my life that I may take it up again. 18 No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to take it up again. This charge I have received from my Father.” (Gospel John 10:11-18) ESV

Sunday Sermon Message: You have received Grace from Jesus Christ.. Now live the life of freedom in Christ Jesus knowing that He is within you and that you have repentance in your heart and because of that, you receive the forgiveness of Jesus Christ.

(Gospel Luke 24:36-49) Jesus Appears to His Disciples 36 As they were talking about these things, Jesus himself stood among them, and said to them, “Peace to you!” 37 But they were startled and frightened and thought they saw a spirit. 38 And he said to them, “Why are you troubled, and why do doubts arise in your hearts? 39 See my hands and my feet, that it is I myself. Touch me, and see. For a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see that I have.” 40 And when he had said this, he showed them his hands and his feet. 41 And while they still disbelieved for joy and were marveling, he said to them, “Have you anything here to eat?” 42 They gave him a piece of broiled fish, 43 and he took it and ate before them. 44 Then he said to them, “These are my words that I spoke to you while I was still with you, that everything written about me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled.” 45 Then he opened their minds to understand the Scriptures, 46 and said to them, “Thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer and on the third day rise from the dead, 47 and that repentance for the forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem. 48 You are witnesses of these things. 49 And behold, I am sending the promise of my Father upon you. But stay in the city until you are clothed with power from on high.”( Gospel Luke 24:36-49 ESV)

Sunday Sermon Message: When we realize that we are the church, now guess what? We’re on the spot. Because that’s who we are. In our baptism, we were baptized into a death of Jesus Christ. But we were also baptized into the resurrection of Jesus Christ, of everlasting life. And we became participants of the church, the very body of Christ, to bring and to preach the gospel, the gospel of Jesus Christ, so that all may have salvation.

(Gospel John 20:19-31) – Jesus Appears to the Disciples 19 On the evening of that day, the first day of the week, the doors being locked where the disciples were for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.” 20 When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord. 21 Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you.” 22 And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you withhold forgiveness from any, it is withheld.”

Jesus and Thomas 24 Now Thomas, one of the twelve, called the Twin, was not with them when Jesus came. 25 So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord.” But he said to them, “Unless I see in his hands the mark of the nails, and place my finger into the mark of the nails, and place my hand into his side, I will never believe.” 26 Eight days later, his disciples were inside again, and Thomas was with them. Although the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you.” 27 Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here, and see my hands; and put out your hand, and place it in my side. Do not disbelieve, but believe.” 28 Thomas answered him, “My Lord and my God!” 29 Jesus said to him, “Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”

The Purpose of This Book 30 Now Jesus did many other signs in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book; 31 but these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name. (Gospel John 20:19-31 ESV)

Easter Sunday Sermon – March 31

Sunday Sermon Message: The law has taught us that we fail each and every day of our life. And the only reason that we have hope, the blessed assurance of eternal life, is because what Christ has done. He came into the world and even after his death, even after he rose from the dead, he went to his disciples and presented himself. We have a God that pursues us and pursues us and keeps coming to us and keeps saying, I forgive you, I love you. And in me, Jesus Chrust, you have eternal life. That’s why we celebrate Easter.

When we realize that we are the church, now guess what? We’re on the spot. Because that’s who we are. In our baptism, we were baptized into a death of Jesus Christ. But we were also baptized into the resurrection of Jesus Christ, of everlasting life.

And we became participants of the church, the very body of Christ, to bring and to preach the gospel, the gospel of Jesus Christ, so that all may have salvation.

1 When the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, so that they might go and anoint him. And very early on the first day of the week, when the sun had risen, they went to the tomb. And they were saying to one another, “Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance of the tomb?” And looking up, they saw that the stone had been rolled back—it was very large. And entering the tomb, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, dressed in a white robe, and they were alarmed. And he said to them, “Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has risen; he is not here. See the place where they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter that he is going before you to Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.” And they went out and fled from the tomb, for trembling and astonishment had seized them, and they said nothing to anyone, for they were afraid. (Gospel Mark 16:1-8 ESV)

Sunday Sermon Message: Remember this, you’ll all be sinners, Satan sinners. But we know that we have everlasting life, not because of our works, not because of our actions or what we have done, but because of Christ Jesus and in Christ Jesus alone. Live the life of Christ and know that you are saved in him and him alone.

(Gospel Mark 14:1-31) The Plot to Kill Jesus, 1 It was now two days before the Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread. And the chief priests and the scribes were seeking how to arrest him by stealth and kill him, for they said, “Not during the feast, lest there be an uproar from the people.”

Jesus Anointed at Bethany, And while he was at Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as he was reclining at table, a woman came with an alabaster flask of ointment of pure nard, very costly, and she broke the flask and poured it over his head. There were some who said to themselves indignantly, “Why was the ointment wasted like that? For this ointment could have been sold for more than three hundred denarii and given to the poor.” And they scolded her. But Jesus said, “Leave her alone. Why do you trouble her? She has done a beautiful thing to me. For you always have the poor with you, and whenever you want, you can do good for them. But you will not always have me. She has done what she could; she has anointed my body beforehand for burial. And truly, I say to you, wherever the gospel is proclaimed in the whole world, what she has done will be told in memory of her.”

Judas to Betray Jesus, 10 Then Judas Iscariot, who was one of the twelve, went to the chief priests in order to betray him to them. 11 And when they heard it, they were glad and promised to give him money. And he sought an opportunity to betray him.

The Passover with the Disciples, 12 And on the first day of Unleavened Bread, when they sacrificed the Passover lamb, his disciples said to him, “Where will you have us go and prepare for you to eat the Passover?” 13 And he sent two of his disciples and said to them, “Go into the city, and a man carrying a jar of water will meet you. Follow him, 14 and wherever he enters, say to the master of the house, ‘The Teacher says, Where is my guest room, where I may eat the Passover with my disciples?’ 15 And he will show you a large upper room furnished and ready; there prepare for us.” 16 And the disciples set out and went to the city and found it just as he had told them, and they prepared the Passover. 17 And when it was evening, he came with the twelve. 18 And as they were reclining at table and eating, Jesus said, “Truly, I say to you, one of you will betray me, one who is eating with me.” 19 They began to be sorrowful and to say to him one after another, “Is it I?” 20 He said to them, “It is one of the twelve, one who is dipping bread into the dish with me. 21 For the Son of Man goes as it is written of him, but woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would have been better for that man if he had not been born.”

Institution of the Lord’s Supper, 22 And as they were eating, he took bread, and after blessing it broke it and gave it to them, and said, “Take; this is my body.” 23 And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, and they all drank of it. 24 And he said to them, “This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many. 25 Truly, I say to you, I will not drink again of the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God.”

Jesus Foretells Peter’s Denial, 26 And when they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives. 27 And Jesus said to them, “You will all fall away, for it is written, ‘I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered.’ 28 But after I am raised up, I will go before you to Galilee.” 29 Peter said to him, “Even though they all fall away, I will not.” 30 And Jesus said to him, “Truly, I tell you, this very night, before the rooster crows twice, you will deny me three times.” 31 But he said emphatically, “If I must die with you, I will not deny you.” And they all said the same. (Gospel Mark 14:1-31 ESV)

Sunday Sermon – March 17

Sunday Sermon Message: This whole gospel we have today points out that just because you’re believers, just because your Christians doesn’t mean that you will not experience bad things in this world and that doesn’t mean God has abandoned you. Actually, it can very much mean just the opposite. The fact that he is with you will proclaim the gospel may bring Hatefulness towards you from others but receive it anyway. Receive it as an honor because Jesus did give his life as a ransom. What is ransom? Ransom is paid for someone so that someone’s life can be spared, right? And that’s exactly what Jesus did. He gave his life, as ransom, for all of us.

(Gospel Mark 10:32-45) Jesus Foretells His Death a Third Time 32 And they were on the road, going up to Jerusalem, and Jesus was walking ahead of them. And they were amazed, and those who followed were afraid. And taking the twelve again, he began to tell them what was to happen to him, 33 saying, “See, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be delivered over to the chief priests and the scribes, and they will condemn him to death and deliver him over to the Gentiles. 34 And they will mock him and spit on him, and flog him and kill him. And after three days he will rise.”

The Request of James and John 35 And James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came up to him and said to him, “Teacher, we want you to do for us whatever we ask of you.” 36 And he said to them, “What do you want me to do for you?” 37 And they said to him, “Grant us to sit, one at your right hand and one at your left, in your glory.” 38 Jesus said to them, “You do not know what you are asking. Are you able to drink the cup that I drink, or to be baptized with the baptism with which I am baptized?” 39 And they said to him, “We are able.” And Jesus said to them, “The cup that I drink you will drink, and with the baptism with which I am baptized, you will be baptized, 40 but to sit at my right hand or at my left is not mine to grant, but it is for those for whom it has been prepared.” 41 And when the ten heard it, they began to be indignant at James and John. 42 And Jesus called them to him and said to them, “You know that those who are considered rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. 43 But it shall not be so among you. But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, 44 and whoever would be first among you must be slave of all. 45 For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” (Gospel Mark 10:32-45)

Sunday Sermon Message: We as Christians, should seek the Light of the World not Darkness. And that’s what He is asking us to be, the bright light of the world. Bringing the good news to all. That they know that Jesus Christ came into the world, took all their sins, and He died and rose again, so that we may all have eternal life.

(Gospel John 3:14-21) – For God So Loved the World 14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, 15 that whoever believes in him may have eternal life. 16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. 19 And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil. 20 For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed. 21 But whoever does what is true comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God.” (Gospel John 3:14-21)

Sunday Sermon Message: Christ Jesus wants us to have the embodiment of His love and His grace. He doesn’t want us negotiating. He doesn’t want us trying to please Him, whether it’s in money or by works, so that we can gain favor or avoid His wrath. What He wants us to do, to do is to live in a way that we believe that Christ Jesus came into the world and He gave His life and took on our sins so that we may have everlasting life. And it’s non -negotiable.

(Gospel John 2:13-22 [23-25]) – Jesus Cleanses the Temple 13 The Passover of the Jews was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 14 In the temple he found those who were selling oxen and sheep and pigeons, and the money-changers sitting there. 15 And making a whip of cords, he drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and oxen. And he poured out the coins of the money-changers and overturned their tables. 16 And he told those who sold the pigeons, “Take these things away; do not make my Father’s house a house of trade.” 17 His disciples remembered that it was written, “Zeal for your house will consume me.” 18 So the Jews said to him, “What sign do you show us for doing these things?” 19 Jesus answered them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” 20 The Jews then said, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and will you raise it up in three days?” 21 But he was speaking about the temple of his body. 22 When therefore he was raised from the dead, chis disciples remembered that he had said this, and they believed the Scripture and the word that Jesus had spoken.

Jesus Knows What Is in Man 23 Now when he was in Jerusalem at the Passover Feast, many believed in his name when they saw the signs that he was doing. 24 But Jesus on his part did not entrust himself to them, because he knew all people 25 and needed no one to bear witness about man, for he himself knew what was in man. (Gospel John 2:13-22 [23-25])

Sunday Sermon Message: That’s what I ask you to do to, love and to have no fear that regardless with the circumstances you’re alive, God is in control however things may end. That the ending is wonderful, whether you live or you die, Christ belongs to you. You belong to him, and you have eternal life. If you die today, you will go to heaven. It’s because of what Christ has done and has nothing to do how much you failed him.

(Gospel Mark 8:27-38) Peter Confesses Jesus as the Christ (27 And Jesus went on with his disciples to the villages of Caesarea Philippi. And on the way he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that I am?” 28 And they told him, “John the Baptist; and others say, Elijah; and others, one of the prophets.” 29 And he asked them, “But who do you say that I am?” Peter answered him, “You are the Christ.” 30 And he strictly charged them to tell no one about him. Jesus Foretells His Death and Resurrection 31 And he began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders and the chief priests and the scribes and be killed, and after three days rise again. 32 And he said this plainly. And Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him. 33 But turning and seeing his disciples, he rebuked Peter and said, “Get behind me, Satan! For you are not setting your mind on the things of God, but on the things of man.” 34 And calling the crowd to him with his disciples, he said to them, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. 35 For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel’s will save it. 36 For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul? 37 For what can a man give in return for his soul? 38 For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him will the Son of Man also be ashamed when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.”) Mark 8:28-38 ESV

Sunday Sermon Message: The Gospel never says that you will not experience hardship in life. The Gospel merely says that God will be with you, his angels will comfort you, and to be with you in the time of trial.

(Gospel Mark 1:9-15) – The Baptism of Jesus (In those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. 10 And when he came up out of the water, immediately he saw the heavens being torn open and the Spirit descending on him like a dove. 11 And a voice came from heaven, “You are my beloved Son; with you I am well pleased.”) The Temptation of Jesus (12 The Spirit immediately drove him out into the wilderness. 13 And he was in the wilderness forty days, being tempted by Satan. And he was with the wild animals, and the angels were ministering to him.) Jesus Begins His Ministry (14 Now after John was arrested, Jesus came into Galilee, proclaiming the gospel of God, 15 and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.”.) Mark 1:9-15 ESV

Sunday Sermon Message: It’s time for us to take time up on our life and to come and just to worship the God who created us. Worship the God who sent His only Son into the world so that we may have life. And sometimes just to be still and to be quiet. Take time in your life to listen to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

(Gospel Mark 9:2-9) – The Transfiguration (And after six days Jesus took with him Peter and James and John, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. And he was transfigured before them, and his clothes became radiant, intensely white, as no one on earth could bleach them. And there appeared to them Elijah with Moses, and they were talking with Jesus. And Peter said to Jesus, “Rabbi, it is good that we are here. Let us make three tents, one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah.” For he did not know what to say, for they were terrified. And a cloud overshadowed them, and a voice came out of the cloud, “This is my beloved Son; listen to him.” And suddenly, looking around, they no longer saw anyone with them but Jesus only. And as they were coming down the mountain, he charged them to tell no one what they had seen, until the Son of Man had risen from the dead.) Mark 1:2-9 ESV

Sunday Sermon Message: We serve as individuals and we serve as a congregation. Now the question is, are we fulfilling what Christ has called us to do, and are we serving in the manner that we should? And that’s always a question that we have, that we shall step out in faith and to serve others and not ourself.

(Gospel Mark 1:29-39) – Jesus Heals Many (29 And immediately he left the synagogue and entered the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John. 30 Now Simon’s mother-in-law lay ill with a fever, and immediately they told him about her. 31 And he came and took her by the hand and lifted her up, and the fever left her, and she began to serve them. 32 That evening at sundown they brought to him all who were sick or oppressed by demons. 33 And the whole city was gathered together at the door. 34 And he healed many who were sick with various diseases, and cast out many demons. And he would not permit the demons to speak, because they knew him.

Jesus Preaches in Galilee 35 And rising very early in the morning, while it was still dark, he departed and went out to a desolate place, and there he prayed. 36 And Simon and those who were with him searched for him, 37 and they found him and said to him, “Everyone is looking for you.” 38 And he said to them, “Let us go on to the next towns, that I may preach there also, for that is why I came out.” 39 And he went throughout all Galilee, preaching in their synagogues and casting out demons.) Mark 1:29-39 ESV

Sunday Sermon Message: And in today’s Gospel, there’s much more is going on than what meets the eye. Jesus is teaching us in His Church how to be and how to love. There are spirits in this world that need to be dealt with, and we need to do it not only for ourselves, but for others as well. We shall not have condemnation for someone who has a dirty, filthy spirit. We shall merely address the spirit itself and pray for the individual in Christ Jesus.

(Gospel Mark 1:21-28) – Jesus Heals a Man with an Unclean Spirit (21 And they went into Capernaum, and immediately on the Sabbath he entered the synagogue and was teaching. 22 And they were astonished at his teaching, for he taught them as one who had authority, and not as the scribes. 23 And immediately there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit. And he cried out, 24 “What have you to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are—the Holy One of God.” 25 But Jesus rebuked him, saying, “Be silent, and come out of him!” 26 And the unclean spirit, convulsing him and crying out with a loud voice, came out of him. 27 And they were all amazed, so that they questioned among themselves, saying, “What is this? A new teaching with authority! He commands even the unclean spirits, and they obey him.” 28 And at once his fame spread everywhere throughout all the surrounding region of Galilee.) Mark 1:21-28 ESV

Sunday Sermon Message: When we come up to receive the very sacrament of Jesus Christ, we pretty much come as beggars with our hands up to be filled. It’s something that brings Christ alive. It’s not so much the words that we speak, but the actions that we make. The very lives that we love that brings Christ alive and brings newness to someone that says, Eureka, I think I see now. I see the blood of the Lamb. And it is Him that I have hope. Yes, Jesus Christ, He is our hope, and one and only hope.

(Gospel John 1:43-51) – Jesus Calls Philip and Nathanael (43 The next day Jesus decided to go to Galilee. He found Philip and said to him, “Follow me.” 44 Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. 45 Philip found Nathanael and said to him, “We have found him of whom Moses in the Law and also the prophets wrote, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.” 46 Nathanael said to him, “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?” Philip said to him, “Come and see.” 47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward him and said of him, “Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom there is no deceit!” 48 Nathanael said to him, “How do you know me?” Jesus answered him, “Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you.” 49 Nathanael answered him, “Rabbi, you are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!” 50 Jesus answered him, “Because I said to you, ‘I saw you under the fig tree,’ do you believe? You will see greater things than these.” 51 And he said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, you will see heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man.”) John 1:43-51 ESV

Sunday Sermon Message: And even the secular world, like a Roman guard, would understand who Jesus Christ was. That’s why, because Jesus Christ came into the world so that all may be saved. And not just a few theologians and those who had been taught and chosen through the years. But now, by the grace of God, we all receive salvation. And that salvation comes in the name of Jesus Christ.

(Gospel Mark 1:4-11) – John the Baptist Prepares the Way ( 1The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. 2As it is written in Isaiah the prophet, “Behold, I send my messenger before your face, who will prepare your way, the voice of one crying in the wilderness: ‘Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight,’ ” 4John appeared, baptizing in the wilderness and proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. And all the country of Judea and all Jerusalem were going out to him and were being baptized by him in the river Jordan, confessing their sins. Now John was clothed with camel’s hair and wore a leather belt around his waist and ate locusts and wild honey. And he preached, saying, “After me comes he who is mightier than I, the strap of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and untie. I have baptized you with water, but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.”

The Baptism of Jesus In those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. 10 And when he came up out of the water, immediately he saw the heavens being torn open and the Spirit descending on him like a dove. 11 And a voice came from heaven, “You are my beloved Son; with you I am well pleased.”) Mark 1:4-11 ESV
