    John 7:37-39
  • Serve

    by Shawn Merithew on March 26, 2017
    2 Cor 6:1-10

    Christ said, “The Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many.” (Matt 20:28) In Christ, we are meant to be servants as well — never passive spectators, but active participants in His work. This sermon explores the role of the servant, the message of the servant, the caution of the servant, and the path of the servant, all with the goal of helping is realize that our greatest joy is in being servants of Christ and serving others in His name.

  • Love

    by Shawn Merithew on March 19, 2017
    2 Cor 5:14-15

    “Love” is definitely one of our favorite subjects as Christians. But it is also one of the most misunderstood subjects in the church because our idea of love is typically rooted in worldly wisdom rather than in scriptural truth. Biblically speaking, true love is rooted in death. Christ’s death demonstrated God’s love and secured our love. So the questions we answer through this sermon are, “What does it mean for us to be ‘constrained’ by love?” and “What does the death of Christ mean for our life and ministry?”

  • Is This The Christ

    by Reid Ward on March 12, 2017
    John 7:25-36

    It can be very difficult when we are confronted with either difficult truth, or difficult circumstances. It is certainly difficult to reconcile the two when are faced with both at the same point in life. Perhaps you are in a place of honest struggle to reconcile what you see with your eyes and what you know to be true. As we look this passage, we find that by looking to Jesus in faith, we can find relief from our struggle, and the joy of the presence of God.

    Jesus has now come into Jerusalem, teaching boldly in the Temple. Never shrinking back from proclaiming the truth, He uses Moses to show how the Jews were not keeping the Law, and the Sabbath as an example to demonstrate how they see only the material and are blind to the spiritual. As a result, we will see three distinct responses; the response of faith by many of the people, the response of unbelief by the Pharisees, and the anxious inquiry of the Jews.

  • Proclaim

    by Shawn Merithew on March 12, 2017
    2 Cor 4:5-7

    The Corinthians church frequently put Paul in the position of having to defend his apostleship and ministry. In this text, Paul is specifically defending His preaching ministry, but through his words, God gives us a magnificent picture of the church’s role in lifting up Christ. As we proclaim Christ, the church is edified, the world is judged guilty of sin, and the lost are saved as God sovereignly gives the light of the knowledge of His glory in the face of Christ.

  • Apologetics Class Week 34 – March 8, 2017

  • Trust

    by Shawn Merithew on March 5, 2017
    2 Corinthians 1:8-11

    In this first sermon of our “Flourish in Faith” mini-series, we learn from Paul’s experience of suffering that our heavenly Father blesses us with challenges and afflictions to bring us back to Himself. God works through adversity to shatter any sense of self-reliance, to show us that we are truly weak, and to help us see that every other earthly support will fail us. The result is that we trust in Him rather than ourselves, and this trust is poured out in renewed hope and fervent prayer.

  • The Biblical Basis for ‘FLOURISH IN FAITH’

    by Shawn Merithew on February 26, 2017
    Col 2:1-3

    As Paul wrote to the church at Colossae, his heart for their well-being and spiritual health bled through every word. These verses are a prayer of sorts for their deepening love and burgeoning knowledge of Christ, who Himself is the Christian’s and the church’s greatest wealth and treasure. As Morningview stands on the cusp of a significant capitol campaign for the renovation of our building, the focus is set upon drawing near to, depending upon, and treasuring Christ.

  • The Primacy of Preaching in the Plan of Redemption

    by Shawn Merithew on February 26, 2017
    Romans 10:14-15

    John Murray has rightly noted that calling upon God’s name for salvation does not occur “in a vacuum; it occurs only in a context created by proclamation of the gospel on the part of those commissioned to proclaim it.” What Paul does here with this series of questions in verses 14 and 15 is walk us backwards from the sinner calling upon the Lord to the original cause of God sending His messengers to preach. What we are meant to understand is that the proclamation of God’s Word is God’s ordained means to draw His people to Himself in saving faith.
