Sermones

  • The dwelling place of God is with man - Revolución. 21:3 “When a woman is giving birth, she has sorrow because her hour has come.”  So says Jesus in the Gospel lesson just read (Juan 16:12-22).  By “sorrow” he means the pain.  The great pain.  “But when she has delivered the baby,” Jesus continues, “she no long...
  • A Glimpse of Glory Lucas 9:28-36 Transfiguration Sunday. “What a glorious sight!”  That’s what I always say to myself whenever I go up on a mountain.  There’s so much to see!  I love taking in the view.   But Peter, James and John didn’t seem to feel the sam...
  • On Being Pro-Life Juan 2:1-11 Jesus turned water into wine.   This was his first miracle, and one of those for which he is best known.  We can see why.  Jesus saved the day and kept the joy going.  This is the kind of Savior people want to follow!   But there...
  • Christmas Day Sermon Texto: Juan 1:1-18 Christmas Day is the highpoint of the Church’s celebration of Christ’s birth.  As such, it is fitting that we read St. John’s account of his birth on this day, for this account goes beyond just the telling of the story.  This account ...
  • Worthy of Your Calling Texto: Efesios 4:1-8 and Mark 12:38-44 “She put in more than all the others.”  That’s what Jesus said about the widow.  Her gift was more, because it was everything—all she had.  One Hundred percent.   And, her gift was more because it was ...
  • 上帝的义如何显明? 二零一八年十月二十八日 宗教改革主日 证道经文: 罗马书3:19-28 Nombre de Jesucristo,阿门! 今天是宗教改革主日。五百零一年前上帝通过马丁路德开始了改革教会神学、体制及敬拜与生活方式的改教运动。开始这次改革的标志性事件是一五一七年十月三十一日马丁路德将他反对赎罪券的《九十五条论纲》钉在德国威登堡教堂大门上然而改革的火花却早在一年前的某个时候于威登堡奥古斯丁修道院的五号高塔中由圣灵在他的心里点燃了;就在那个时候马丁路德发现了上帝的义并发现上帝的义是如何在福音中彰显出来的。他终...
  • Domingo de la Reforma Revelación 14:6-7 In the Gospel lesson just read (Mateo 11:12-19), Jesus makes some rather pointed comments about his generation.  The short parable he tells marks them as self-centered.  His follow-up remarks paint them as unfairly critical of other...
  • 谁是良善的? 二零一八年十月十四日 证道经文:马可福音10:17–22 奉耶稣基督的名阿门! 谁是良善的?在刚刚过去的最高法院大法官任命听证会过程中和过程之后如果你向不同的人问到关于卡瓦诺法官和控告他的福特女士之间“谁是良善的”你肯定会得到不同的答案。大部分民主党的人会说福特女士是良善的受害者卡瓦诺是性侵者;对于大多数共和党的人来说则正好相反卡瓦诺是良善的受害者福特女士则是邪恶陷害人的诬告者。为什么会有这么大的差别呢?这个世界因着每个人自私的罪性人人都根据自己的利益来定衡量善恶的标准。一个...
  • Jesus on Marriage and Divorce Marque 10:2-16 Today’s sermon is based on the Gospel lesson just read.  To start us out, I’d like to tell you about an article I read last week.  Perhaps you saw it too as it circled around the internet.   The article tells about the decline in divor...
  • 彻底清除罪恶 圣保罗路德会 二零一八年九月三十日 证道经文:马可福音9:38–50 奉耶稣基督的名阿门! 今天的福音经文是圣经中最难的一段经文之一。我不知道你感觉如何反正我刚读到这段经文的时候我觉得很不舒服实际上说是害怕一点也不过分。看看经文怎么说的你就知道了。耶稣说“凡使这信我的一个小子跌倒的倒不如把大磨石拴在这人的颈项上扔在海里。”紧接着主耶稣讲到剁掉手脚挖出眼睛。如果你身体的某一部分使你犯罪的话就要清除那部分。主耶稣是如此地恨恶罪恶以致于祂的说法完全与人类自然宗教性相反要求...
