Now that it’s almost Sunday again, and I’m about to preach on the Confession of St. Peter, maybe I should post last week’s sermon. It comes in at just under 15 minutes, which surprises me because it’s normal length on paper. I must have been moving that morning.

Sermon for the Second Sunday after Christmas, on Jesus being left behind at the Temple. Texts: 1 Kings 3:4–15, Ephesians 1:3–14, Luke 2:40–52.
Now that another Sunday is almost here, I’ll post my Sunday from last week. Texts: Jeremiah 31:15-17, Revelation 14:1-5, Matthew 2:13-18.

I ran across this question in a Facebook group: What did St. Paul mean in Romans 8 when he spoke of walking according to the spirit? I read through that chapter tonight, and I had several flash backs from my days of Calvinism. It was sermons, such as the one preached in the video I […]

The first one considers the prophecy from Isaiah 40, “A voice cries: ‘In the wilderness prepare the way of the LORD; make straight in the desert a highway for our God. […]
Okay, it’s really two sermons, but the one from Wednesday night is under 10 minutes. First Sunday in Advent (Isaiah 64:1–9, 1 Corinthians 1:3–9, Mark 11:1–10): Advent Midweek Service (Gen. 25:21-26, Rom. 9:10-16, Luke 1:39-45):
