Josiah kicked off the New Year and a new semester at Connexion with a sermon from Psalm 63 with encouragement on how we can pursue growth in Christ in 2016.
From 2 Corinthians 5. The beginning of a new year seems like a good time to consider what it means to be “new creations in Christ.” What’s new about us? How does our ‘newness’ change how we view others?
Around the world, people acknowledge the special birth of the Christ child even if they have no desire to submit to him. Jesus is more than the average king. What do we have to give this King?
Message from the fourth Sunday of Advent.
Third Sunday of Advent. The invasion of grace proclaimed by the angels at Jesus’ birth must be seen with a divine perspective. When we believe, then our eyes are opened to see.
The history, humanity, and humility of Jesus. God in the flesh, come to be the atoning sacrifice for our sins. This is Love.
Reorient your heart around the miracle at the center of the Christmas season. Josiah speaks on the magnitude and mystery of what God has done in the birth of Jesus Christ.
From Luke 1:39-56. Sometimes we get gifts that are meant just for us – a bottle of cologne, a new tie, etc. Other times, gifts are for the whole family – like a board game, or a basketball hoop. Imagine a gift that was for you, your family, the neighborhood, the whole town…now think bigger. A gift for the nations. That’s the kind of gift that was given in Christ, and Mary reflects on this in the song known as the Magnificat (Luke 1:46-55).
Josiah continues the series on our Read ID, drawing our attention on our security in Christ.
From Luke 17:11-19. When Jesus encountered 10 people who had leprosy on the way to Jerusalem he healed all of them. After all of them were healed only one returned to give thanks. I want to be like the leper who returned. I want my life to be a thanksgiving offering to Jesus. Join me as we give thanks to the one who gave us life.
