16 Verses: ” The Suffering Servant:” Isaiah 53:6

Pastor Chris Garrison continues his "16 Verses" Sermon series teaching from Isaiah 53:6. The text, in context, contains a series of seemingly contradictory statements. Yet the juxtapositions create a clear structure that defines what the servant is: a divine substitution for the sacrifice needed to pay the price for the sins of Adam and Eve that are transferred to us and that we carry. The suffering servant's humiliation leads to exaltation and brings us peace as he bears our sins.Why? Because GOD LOVES YOU!

1 Timothy 1:3-20: Fascinating

This is the second sermon on the first letter of Paul to Timothy. Paul is writing to Timothy in Ephesus where there are problems with the church there because it was not guarding the gospel of Jesus against the chatter and talk among the people. As Christians, our main purpose, our charge, is to guard the gospel. We don't do this by shutting it up or speaking it in Greek or Christian terms. We do it by making it the center of our lives.

7 Letters to the Churches:Luke Warm

Pastor Chris Garrison teaches from the letter to the church in Laodicea in Revelation 3:14-22. Jesus is the authority and answer to everything, and as such should be the root of all our passions. But misplaced passion is a recipe for a lukewarm faith. What's wrong with being lukewarm? Why does it rob us of joy? What is the remedy?

Handles: Wrath

In this, the final sermon in the "Handles" Series, Pastor Chris Garrison gives us a picture of God's "just" wrath. Just wrath is a necessary component of life. Even though we are uncomfortable with it, God's wrath flows out of His love for His creation and for His children. When that love is violated, He shows His anger as a consequence to those who deserve it. But the Good News is that Jesus took the wrath that we deserve, took it to the cross, and paid the ultimate price so we don't  have to face the wrath of God.
