Reformation: Scripture Alone

Prayer of Confession
Dear God, You tell us that Your Word is a sword, a weapon we use against those who wish us eternal harm. We are called to use the Word to combat fear and doubt; to fight evil and darkness; to offer hope and love, yet too many of us don’t use this sword. We keep it polished and on display, or sheathed, as a decorative accessory. Help us engage Your Word as You wish, to take it off the shelf, off our belts and wield it when necessary, whether it is to fight wickedness, clear our path from overgrowth or to protect others…

Dr. Jonathan Sloan continues the sermon series about the reformation. The second in the series, Scripture Alone (Sola Scriptura) is based on 2 Thessalonians 2:13-17.

Reformation: Faith Alone

Prayer of Confession
Dear God, we wake every morning determined to make it through the day without sinning; but we don’t get very far. Whether we sin by action, inaction, or in our thoughts, we are all guilty. We use this guilt to work harder, to help more people, to try to become ‘holier’ people. In accomplishing more, we hope to feel better about ourselves, to make You love us more and to appear more Christian than our neighbors. Help us to remember that You value us because we believe in You and we are saved not because of what we do, but because of who You are…

Dr. Jonathan Sloan starts a sermon series about the reformation. The first in the series, Faith Alone (Sola Fide) is based on Romans 3:20-28.

Saved for What?

Based on Ephesians 2:8-10, Dr. Jonathan Sloan gives a sermon explaining that our salvation has a purpose, we were saved for the good works for which we were made. Our works don’t earn us salvation.

A Different Kind of King

Palm Sunday marks the triumphant entry of Jesus to Jerusalem. The people lined the roads waving palm branches with shouts of “Hosanna.” Most knew a King was in their presence, but what kind of king were they expecting? What kind of king do we expect?

Death, then Life!

Hear Dr. Sloan’s message, “Death, then Life!” based on Romans 6:1-14:

Dying and Rising with Christ
What then are we to say? Should we continue in sin in order that grace may abound? By no means! How can we who died to sin go on living in it? Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? Therefore we have been buried with him by baptism into death, so that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life.

For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his. We know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body of sin might be destroyed, and we might no longer be enslaved to sin. For whoever has died is freed from sin. But if we have died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. We know that Christ, being raised from the dead, will never die again; death no longer has dominion over him. The death he died, he died to sin, once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God. So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus.

Therefore, do not let sin exercise dominion in your mortal bodies, to make you obey their passions. No longer present your members to sin as instruments[a] of wickedness, but present yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life, and present your members to God as instruments[b] of righteousness. For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace.

But God

Hear Dr. Jon Sloan’s message, “…but God” based on Ephesians 2:1-9:
“You were dead through the trespasses and sins in which you once lived, following the course of this world, following the ruler of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work among those who are disobedient. All of us once lived among them in the passions of our flesh, following the desires of flesh and senses, and we were by nature children of wrath, like everyone else. But God, who is rich in mercy, out of the great love with which he loved us even when we were dead through our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ[a]—by grace you have been saved— and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the ages to come he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God—not the result of works, so that no one may boast.”
