The Christmas Spirit: Humility
The Christmas spirit we see in this important text is humility. Even though He was equal with God, Jesus willingly humbled Himself. We explore what it means that He “emptied” Himself, and we discover the true wonder of Christmas. The main point of this text is that we practice this spirit of humility. We learn what true humility involves and how to get motivated to reflect the humility we see in the Christmas story.

    Should I Not Pity that Great City, Colorado Springs?
    In Jonah 4, we discover that we should be gracious toward others since God has been gracious toward us. We learn from Jonah that there is a "problem" with God’s grace as we often want to see people experience God’s justice while we want to experience His grace. We learn how our hearts can be changed to reflect God’s heart for Colorado Springs and all people.

    God is Patient
    As we see God’s patience toward Jonah, we are reminded that God is patient with His people. We are motivated to faithfulness and to be patient with one another. As we see God’s patience toward Nineveh, we are reminded that God is patient with all people. While the cross reveals God is willing to forgive the most undeserving people, we also discover that God’s patience won’t last forever.

    The Church and the State
    Series: Specials
    This sermon was preached on the eve of the 2016 presidential election. How should Christians think about politics? Some think there are certain controversial issues such as politics that Christians should avoid. On the other hand, some think the solution to all our problems is found through political involvement. To help answer these difficult issues, we go to God’s Word and discover several timeless principles for how Christians should think about the relationship between the church and the state.

    Foundations of the Faith
    Series: Specials
    On October 31, 1517, Martin Luther nailed 95 theses to the church door in Wittenberg, Germany and effectively began the Protestant Reformation. 499 years later, we still celebrate and experience the benefits of that Reformation which helped restore the church to the foundational teachings of the Bible. In this sermon, we talk about the most significant principles that were reintroduced by Luther and the other Reformers: Scripture Alone, Grace Alone, Faith Alone, Christ Alone, and God’s Glory Alone.
