Restore the House: Called to Action January 18, 2009 Restore the House Called to Action Sermon Synopsis: This sermon examines the call of Samuel in 1 Samuel 3:1-10 and the call of Nathanael in John1:43-51. Both calls demonstrate the importance of the voice of the Lord to bring light to the darkness they were experiencing. When people neglect their place in worship and their place of worship darkness sets in. Notice too that the call of God must be followed by acts of obedience. Make no mistake about it, God knows you. God knows your hiding place and all your excuses. God knows where you are right now. God knows your need of transformation and is ready to turn on the light. Are you ready for the transformation that the light brings? This year transform everything!

Restore the House: It Is the Time for New Beginnings January 11, 2009 Restore the House It is the Time for New Beginnings Sermon Synopsis: Sermon continues the theme of transformation. Three passages of Scripture provide a metaphor for the uncontrolled aspects of life. In the story of creation, Genesis 1:1-5, the God of Creation is introduced as the God of New Beginnings. God looked down on creation and breathed life into it. You and I often see the dark and murky side of life. God wants to turn the light on so we can see new possibilities with God. The story of Jesus’ baptism, Mark 1:4-11, provides another look at what happens in the water. Jesus’ baptism transformed the baptism of repentance to the baptism of the Spirit. Again, the breathe of God descended on creation. This time God’s light illuminated Jesus as the Son of God. The baptism of John’s disciples by Paul, Acts 19:1-7, provides the backdrop for us to consider our own baptism. The God of creation wants to be the God of transformation for all of us.

Called  to Restoration: This Year Transform Everything "Of the Father's Love Begotten" Of the Father's love begotten Ere the worlds began to be, He is Alpha and Omega, He the Source, the Ending He, Of the things that are, that have been, And that future years shall see Evermore and evermore. January 4, 2009 The First Sunday of the New Year Called to Restoration: This Year Transform Everything 2 Chronicles 24:4-5 Sermon Synopsis: The sermon is a challenge for believers to start the year off “right” not mounting up debts, but paying tribute instead. We begin with the story of Joash King of Judah calling the people to “restore the temple of the LORD.” The people responded by providing funds for the restoration, but the Levites, the priests, did not act. Joash realized the time had come to do the right thing so he stepped in to get the work started. It was time to restore the house. I hope 2009 will be your “Year to Transform Everything.” At the beginning of this New Year, I invite you to survey the house in which you live. Assess the damages. Evaluate the needs. Estimate the cost. Start now! Set aside personal resources. Address what is needed. Begin to work where you are. Don’t wait! Prayer of Restoration O God help me restore my house: Body, Mind, and Soul/Spirit. I don’t want to be defeated again this year. O God help me restore my relationships with others. Family: Start at home, we all have homework to do. Spouse, Parents to children and children to parents, Brothers and Sisters Friends and Associates O God help me, restore my place in worship. Start with the restoration of your relationship with God and with your brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus. O God help me, restore my place of worship. We’ve waited long enough. The time has come to do the right thing. It is time to restore the house!
