What happens when an insincere king mixes it up with sincere seekers of Jesus? Find out on Sunday.
(From Matthew 2:1-12)
Just as we trust and follow road signs as we drive, we need to trust and follow God's signs. In Isaiah, God promised a sign of deliverance in the form of a baby...and he calls us to orient our lives around that sign. God's gift to us is a child, a baby called "Immanuel," which means, "God is with us."
Sermon: Trusting God's Sign

Jesus is God's sign that God is with us. We need to trust God's sign. (From Isaiah 7:10-14 and Matthew 1:22-23)
These slides are a rough draft. I'm out of town from today through Saturday and won't have an internet connection, so I posted early. See you Sunday!
Thanks to a technical problem caused by yours truly, you'll have to put up with a shortened version of my sermon!
Repentance is not based in feelings but in action that lives out God's kingdom values. Repentance requires a response, demands that we live a lifestyle that shares God's love with others, and requires specific actions on our part.
Sermon: Repentance Requires Response
Through his prophesying, Malachi condemned the judgmental hypocrites who were eager for God's judgment to descend...upon others! He taught that God's judgment begins with those who think they are least likely to need it. But judgment's end result is positive--God refines us through judgment, to purify us so we can offer acceptable gifts back to him.
What needs to be purified from your life so your can serve God?
