Freedom In Christ: “No Other Gospel”
Scripture: Galatians 1:1-9
 
In Paul's intro to his letter, we see in his anger and frustration that the Galatian Christians had allowed distortions to the message of Jesus how powerful, how unique, and how special the gospel is, and how easily we distort it.

    The Cross and the Jukebox: “Didn’t Fix Me”
    song:  "Didn't Fix Me"
    written by Taylor Goldsmith, performed by Dawes
    Bible passages: Ecclesiastes 1-2, 2 Corinthians 12:7-10
     
    music video on YouTube:  https://youtu.be/EP4l11X44No
     
    Written during the first few months of the pandemic about his own struggles with mental health, this song by Taylor Goldsmith of the indie band Dawes explores the perpetual human drive to find experiences or accomplishments that will bring us lasting fulfillment and joy and happiness, and similarly to the book of Ecclesiastes concludes that they do not satisfy. Both the song and Ecclesiastes point to the need of a Savior who can redeem even our suffering.  Thanks to Dr. Robby Glasscock for delivering the sermon.

    The Cross and the Jukebox: “Every Grain of Sand”
    song:  "Every Grain of Sand" 
    written and performed by:  Bob Dylan
    Scripture:  Psalm 33
     
    music video link:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SSIYAY78Mo8
     
    On the last track of his last Christian-themed album, Dylan places what is widely considered one of his greatest songs.  "Every Grain of Sand" is a reflection on Dylan's experience of God's grace and presence over his life.  When we have the eyes of faith, we can see God's hand in the seemingly mundane things of life, and recognize the truth that, as Jesus tells us, "every hair is numbered" and that God's providential hand is with us at every moment.

    Series: David
    Scripture:  2 Samuel 15
     
    How do we seek God and have trust in God's care when our dreams and plans for the future can't come true? Seeing how David responds during what was the darkest period in his later life shows us what faith looks like during those times.

    David: “Returning Good for Evil”
    Series: David
    Scripture:  1 Samuel 25
     
    In this account of David's encounter with Abigail and her husband Nabal, we see in action a better way to respond when we have been wronged. When we return good for evil, we actually free ourselves to live in peace.

    Series: David
    Scripture: 1 Samuel 17, Psalm 146
     
    We all place our hope in what, or who, we depend on the most. But what do you do when you’re left disappointed? David’s response to the challenge of Goliath offers a way to move forward.

    David: “What Made David Great”
    Series: David
    Scripture:  Psalm 27
     
    Everyone who knows the Bible knows that King David was a great man. Yet everyone familiar with the Bible will also recognize that David did a lot of not-so-great things. So what made him great? It was that David consistently saw something that many people do not see: that God is in control, and that God is the only one in whom we can place our trust.
