One Year From Now

5 Sermons | January 1-29, 2023

From losing weight, to spending less money, to getting better organized, to finding a new hobby; just about everyone has some goals that they want to work on when a new year begins.

 

But, as followers of Jesus, there is one goal that we should always be working toward. As followers of Jesus we should want to become more like Jesus. In this series, we'll talk about how you can be more like Jesus one year from now.

Sermon 1

More Like Jesus

January 1, 2023

It's been said that the New Year is like an empty book waiting to be written...but it's not always easy to know what story you want to write. As a new year begins there are so many possibilities that it's easy to become paralyzed by them.

 

In this sermon, we'll talk about what our first priority always needs to be as followers of Jesus. And we'll be challenged to focus on this priority as the new year begins.

Sermon 2

A Lot to Learn

January 8, 2023

You can't become more like Jesus unless you know who Jesus is. But if you've been a part of a church for years, it's easy to feel like you already know everything there is to know about Jesus.

 

In this sermon, we'll be reminded that Jesus is an ineffable mystery - Jesus will always be beyond our ability to fully understand or explain. So we all still have a lot to learn about Jesus.

Sermon 3

Loving Like Jesus

January 15, 2023

The word miracle means "to marvel" and, when we read about the miracles Jesus performs, it's easy to want to marvel at how he can heal the sick, or calm the sea, or feed the hungry.

 

But sometimes we get so caught up in the individual miracles that Jesus performs that we miss the bigger picture. In this sermon, we'll take a step back and look at the miracles Jesus performs as a whole to see what they teach us about who Jesus is.

Sermon 4

Room For You

January 22, 2023

Who is welcome in the Kingdom of God? This is a question that just about every follower of Jesus wrestles with from time to time.

 

In this sermon, we'll wrestle with an uncomfortable exchange Jesus has with one particular woman. And we'll see what this exchange has to teach us about who is and isn't welcome in God's kingdom.

Sermon 5

Knowing Jesus

January 29, 2023

The theologian Elizabeth Johnson describes Jesus as "ineffable mystery" - meaning that Jesus is beyond our ability to fully understand or explain. So how can we ever hope to know who Jesus us?

 

Well, knowing Jesus isn't about information...it's about a relationship. So the only way to know Jesus is to know him personally.

As followers of Jesus we should want to become more like Jesus. In this sermon series, we'll talk about how you can be more like Jesus one year from now.
