Last Sunday’s Sermons: “After Darkness, Light!” & “Outsiders Welcome!”

by Sarah Boghosian February 27, 2014

AM: After Darkness, Light!  Isaiah 8:16-9:2

In his Sunday morning sermon (2/23) "After Darkness, Light!", Liam Goligher exposited Isaiah 8:16-9:2 and emphasized themes tied closely to his previous week's sermon "Bind up the Testimony." In this passage Isaiah gathers his disciples around him and communicates with them about the Word of God. Liam expounds on this theme of the authority of scripture, that accepting the authority of scripture leads to a confidence in God (as evidenced in Isaiah), while denying the authority of scripture leads to doubt in God (as seen through King Ahaz).

You will find a complete list to date of sermons in the Isaiah series "The Gospel According to Isaiah" in our Resource Library. You can watch the entire service on our YouTube or Vimeo channels.

PM: Outsiders Welcome!  John 4:1-15

Sunday evening, Liam continued his series in the Gospel of John ("That You May Believe…") with "Outsiders Welcome!" examining John 4:1-15, the well-known story of the woman at the well.

Liam points out, fittingly, that in this passage Jesus models for us the appropriate approach to outreach and evangelism—the very same evening our own Minister of Outreach Will Spokes was installed. Jesus demonstrates in his interactions with the Samaritan woman at the well that true outreach requires us to be:

  • Intentional
  • Counter-Cultural
  • Relational

You can watch the full evening service, including Will Spokes' installation, on our YouTube and Vimeo channels.
