The King Fisher (John 21:1-6,8-11)

Podcast Art JohnOn Sunday, November 6, 2016, Rev. Joe Troutman preached “The King Fisher” from John 21:1-6, 8-11.

As a net draws fish from the sea, so God uses the proclamation of the gospel to draw sinners to Jesus Christ.

1. The Revelation of Jesus Christ—All revelation brings glory to God’s name and sinners to repentance.

2. Cast the Net—The church is to cast the net as her Lord commands, and totrust him for the results.

3. Feeding His Sheep—God has chosen to use the church as the ordinary means by which he calls sinners to faith. The faith of the church is built up by the preaching of the word and the administration of the sacraments.

God Is For Us (Romans 8:31-39)

img_3245On Sunday, October 30, 2016, Rev. Dr. Bill Dennison preached “God Is For Us” from Romans 8:31-39.

What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? As it is written,

’For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.’

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
