    God’s Spirit (1 Corinthians 2:3-10a)

    May 26, 2019

    Pastor Paul Sausser The ways of God are not understood by the “wisdom” of humankind because it is the Holy Spirit to reveals God’s way and the importance of the cross to His people.

  • The Cross (1 Corinthians 1:17-2:2)

    The Cross (1 Corinthians 1:17-2:2)

    May 19, 2019

    Pastor Paul Sausser The thinking of humankind would never have come up with the cross as a way of being with God. The cross means repentance, not achievement. This “wisdom” of God is in direct contrast to any “wisdom” the world might show in how to be spiritual. The gospel is about Christ reliance, not […]

    May 13, 2019

    Divisions (1 Corinthians 1:10-16)

    May 13, 2019

    Pastor Paul Sausser In the midst of the different camps within the church, the Apostle pleads for unity. The answer has less to do with structure and a whole lot more to do with the cross. For the witness that the church is to be a culture like Corinth, the living out unity is what […]

    The Corinthians (1 Corinthians 1:1-9)

    April 29, 2019

    Pastor Paul Sausser Corinth was a self-indulgent city. A melting pot of people from all over the world who immigrated there to start a new life, to have hope. Here the Apostle planted a church. People experienced that the cross of Jesus turns people from self-absorbed to being service oriented. Yet, there are always growing […]

    Good Friday & Resurrection Day

    April 22, 2019

    On Good Friday, we observed the death of Christ through a Tenebrae service. Today is Resurrection Day! Today we hold onto that hope of new life—we don’t hold on to the sadness. If you have faith, then you also have seen the risen Lord. In fact, you may still do your share of crying, too. […]

    March 25, 2019

    Lent: week 2 Pastor Paul Sausser On His way to Jerusalem Jesus is interrupted by people who warn Him of Herod’s intent to kill Him. But Jesus is not concerned with Herod’s plans. Jesus knows He is going to die so He can bring us under the protection of His wings.

    The Tempter (Luke 4:1-13)

    March 11, 2019

    Lent: week 1 Pastor Paul Sausser The Spirit thrusts Jesus to the wilderness—there He meets temptation. Father God does not do the tempting—He provides the strength and the way to victory in it. How can we know that victory unless Father God has permitted the temptation to come? It is in Jesus and the way […]
