The Dawn of New Creation (Grace Restores Nature #1)

On the day of his resurrection, Jesus breathed on his followers, giving them the Holy Spirit and commissioning them as his agents of forgiveness in the world. In doing so, he repeated God's initial act of breathing life into a lump of dust to make the first humans—yes, in doing so, Jesus kicked off the new creation. Our Creator is now re-creating the entirety of creation. He's brought forgiveness, and now He's bringing new life, restoring us and forming us into the highest pinnacle of his intention for humanity. Easter is good news indeed!

Resurrection and Human Connection: The Reversal of Babel (Acts 2:1-41)

/Get the Sermons Automatically

To be human is to know the ache of loneliness, regardless of marital status or number of friends. The answer to our need for human connection is the Holy Spirit that the Risen Jesus has sent to us from Heaven. He's miraculously and powerfully working in the church, and in line with the way God always seems to work, He's making beauty out of ugly things. Like a mosaic created from shards of broken glass, the ugliness of our separation is being turned into the beauty of diversity. Do you long for connection? Come live life with us. We do too, and we know the only One powerful enough to truly help us.

Resurrection: A New Reality (Luke 24)

/Get the Sermons Automatically

On Easter Sunday, we read the Easter story together and saw that Jesus' resurrection is more than just a miracle that provides a new way of individuals being spiritual. It's a change in the way the world works, with Jesus conquering death, the ultimate manifestation of evil, on behalf of humanity. He's conquered the world's biggest foe and now stands as the supreme ruler of all things. In the end, the meaning of the resurrection is that repentance for the forgiveness of sins can be preached to all people.
