Benediction: it is a familiar word to most of us, as we normally conclude every service of worship with a benediction. But while many of us may be familiar with the place of benedictions in our services of worship, I wonder how many of us realize the fact that the Bible is full of blessings and benedictions.

31 Aug 2008Joseph s Journey: A Look at the Man and His FaithPreserving and Protecting
Dr. William Maxwell
"A full disclosure." That is what happened when Joseph revealed himself to his brothers. "I am Joseph! I am your brother Joseph, the one you sold into Egypt!" Now, another "full disclosure" occurred. After more than twenty years of believing Joseph to be dead a full disclosure is now given to Jacob by his other sons. We do not know if the brothers started out slowly with a preface or preamble, or if they just blurted it out. But it all came out nonetheless: "Joseph is still alive!" they said. "In fact, he is ruler of all Egypt."

24 Aug 2008Joseph s Journey: A Look at the Man and His FaithThe Invisible Hand
Dr. William Maxwell
By now, having studied Joseph s story for a while, we are able to see the prevailing theme of God s Providence. This theme runs throughout the Joseph narrative, but in fact, it runs throughout the whole Bible.

17 Aug 2008Joseph s Journey: A Look at the Man and His FaithAn Awakening Conscience
Dr. William Maxwell
A teenager of 17 years cast into slavery by his brothers. Thirteen years pass by, perhaps most of which were spent in prison. Then, to amaze us, at the age of 30 he is not only freed from prison, but he is elevated to a position second only to that of Pharaoh, the most powerful monarch on earth. Talk about "rags to riches"! Talk about a "rise to fame"! Talk about a "success story" without parallel!

Dr. William Maxwell
Waiting, waiting, waiting. Most of us do not do this very well, do we? Letters by the US Postal Service are now called "snail mail" compared to the much faster e-mail of our sophisticated computer age. Now we even send "e-cards" to each other! We do not like waiting in lines for too long, and we like our "fast-food" to be well fast!

06 Jul 2008Joseph s Journey: A Look at the Man and His FaithA Glimpse of God's Designs
Dr. William Maxwell
God rules and overrules in all the circumstances of life. Do you believe this to be true for you and for others? This seems to be the conviction of so many of our Founding Fathers. Although there are many who would seek to rewrite history for us, seeking to convince us that many of them were mere deists, believing in a Creator who is disinterested in human affairs, the primary documents tell us otherwise.

April 17th, 2005 that is the day when this all started: a series of sermons on the entire book of Acts. Of course, we haven t gone straight through, Sunday after Sunday, month after month, year after year. This is why it has taken us so long to get through the entire book. But today, we close this lengthy series with our final passage.

Dr. William Maxwell
Encouragement is a wonderful thing, wouldn t you say? To encourage others means to inspire them with courage, spirit or hope; it means to spur them on towards endurance; it means to give them confidence as we cheer them on.

01 Jun 2008The Acts of the Holy Spirit: Then and NowPerils and Providence
Dr. William Maxwell
Just because a person happens to be a veteran sailor or a seasoned traveler, does not mean that peril at sea will be taken lightly. In fact, it will be taken all the more seriously! And along with this, the knowledge that you are not ultimately in control of all that is happening! This is what we see in the description of Paul s sea voyage.

25 May 2008Single-Topic SermonsWhat Are You Waiting For?
Associate Pastor Doug Forsberg
This text before us in 1st Kings is about waiting; it reveals to us how Elijah waited on the Lord in his time of need. Truth be told, faith and waiting go hand in hand, for faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see (Heb 11:1). When we can t see yet have hope, we are waiting, waiting for something we cannot bring about through our own strength or resources.

04 May 2008The Holy Spirit: His Way and Work in UsThe Gifts of the Spirit (Part II)
Dr. William Maxwell
Last week, we looked at a wonderful passage that brings forth several principles for us to consider in regard to the gifts of the Holy Spirit. In the passage before us this morning, we find additional insights in how we are to operate as a church under the Lordship of Christ and empowered for ministry by the Holy Spirit.

27 Apr 2008The Holy Spirit: His Way and Work in UsThe Gifts of the Spirit
Dr. William Maxwell
No church on earth is exempt from problems of one sort or another. We can see this in the New Testament churches, and the church in Corinth was no exception. As a matter of fact, they knew they had problems and so they wrote a letter to Paul about some of them, asking about such matters as marriage, food sacrificed to idols, the nature of the resurrection of the body, and spiritual gifts. As we continue our series on the Holy Spirit, I find the teaching of Paul on spiritual gifts to be very helpful. Here, we find solid counsel on the use of spiritual gifts in the life of the church.

30 Mar 2008Single-Topic SermonsStill Not Believing
Associate Pastor Doug Forsberg
We are not unlike Jesus first disciples in this, for they found it very difficult to believe in the resurrection. Jesus seemed too good to be true when he appeared at a gathering of all 11 of his disciples. We can understand the difficulty they faced. After all, they were just coming to terms with the fact that Jesus had died on the cross. All of their hopes had been dashed when Jesus died. They had not understood that this was a part of God s plan of salvation and had come to think that maybe they had been wrong about Jesus.

Dr. William Maxwell
So far in looking at the portrait of Peter in the Gospels, we ve seen different dimensions of the call to discipleship that comes from Christ the call to follow, the call to serve, and the call to trust. In our passage for this morning, we find "the call to confess."

Our passage this morning describes a very tense and stressful moment for Peter. Portraits of the scene help us to appreciate the anxiety of the moment. But none of us can sense fully what that moment must have felt like as this seasoned Galilean fisherman saw his faith dwindle and his life now in jeopardy in a sea of relentless fury.

17 Feb 2008Lenten Series: "A Portrait of Peter: A Closer Look at the Disciple"The Call to Serve
Dr. William Maxwell
In our passage for this morning, we look at the calling of Peter and the others to serve, as Jesus called them to Himself, gave them His authority and power to go forth, and directed them how they might serve others as His appointed ambassadors. All these points of calling are clearly relevant to our own with Christ, as we look at each one carefully.

Dr. William Maxwell
The Biography Channel; the biography section of a bookstore; People Magazine; Entertainment Tonight; even obituaries in the daily newspaper. These are all about people and it seems that we are always interested in people people of various types and backgrounds, thought and expression. The Bible is also rich in giving us biographies, biographies of the faithful and the faithless, the courageous and the timid, the strong and the weak, the wise and the foolish; and the biblical testimony regarding Peter the disciple has fascinated many of us.

There is something in all of us that questions authority and desires independence rather than submission. This is true in our interactions with other people and it is especially true in our interactions with God. Psalm 2 steps into the midst of our rebellion, proclaiming Jesus reign over all creation and inviting us to take refuge in him.

27 Jan 2008The Acts of the Holy Spirit: Then and NowSwapping Stories
Associate Pastor Doug Forsberg
The pastor of the church where I grew up loved to tell stories. He had a story for every situation, and everything that Jesus did reminded him of a story he d heard somewhere or other. Jesus got left behind in the temple as a boy; Dr. Anderson got left behind one time too. Jesus disciples caught lots of fish; Dr. Anderson caught a lot of fish too. Jesus feet were anointed by a harlot . . . come to think of it Dr. Anderson never had a story for that, but he did love to tell stories.

The changing of the guard: for those who ve visited London and who ve seen this wonderful sight, it is truly awe-inspiring. But the changing of the guard isn t always this way, as in Paul s situation, for example. As we continue to look at Paul s trials before going to Rome, we find a "changing of the guard" in Roman procurators.

13 Jan 2008The Acts of the Holy Spirit: Then and NowA Matter of Conscience
Dr. William Maxwell
Conscience: there it is again for the apostle Paul. It seems to be a common theme for him as we look at his New Testament letters, but especially when brought before authorities to defend himself. When Paul was first arrested by the Romans in Jerusalem and accused by the leaders of the Jewish Council, he began his defense by looking straight at them and saying, "My brothers, I have fulfilled my duty to God in all good conscience to this day."

Dr. William Maxwell
It happens every year on the first Sunday in January you can expect it! I m not talking about Holy Communion although I could, as we have Holy Communion on the first Sunday of every month. But what I m talking about here is the ordination and installation of new church officers. It s such a special time in the life of our church, as ordained ministry is critically important ... and I do mean critically important! While not to be seen exclusively, the health of a church is often contingent upon the spiritual health of its leadership.
