4/14/2024 - "The Ongoing Gifts of Easter - Joy In My Heart"
Text: Psalm 4
Sermon Manuscript (pdf)
Joy is different than happiness. Happiness goes up and down dependent on circumstances. Joy is a permanent undercurrent which supports all of our thoughts, words and deeds, and is not moved by situations. Yes, we can be happy that we are alive in Christ, but even better is to be joyful.

Text: Psalm 148
Sermon Manuscript (pdf)

Easter, like Christmas, is often experienced as a one-and-done type of event. “Easter is so last week.” Nope! Easter is so . . . NOW! And because it is always NOW, we can’t help celebrating continually!

Text: Psalm 16

Even the psalmist, King David, could experience the joy of the resurrection! Because Jesus lives, our today and tomorrows are unshakable, and our hearts are glad.

Text: Psalm 107:1-9
Sermon Manuscript (pdf)

There is no distress like that which separates us from God and others. The psalmist was confident that God was our redeemer, delivering us from our distress by paying its price on our behalf.
