Lent & Holy Week Sermon Series

Lent and Holy Week 2024

St. Paul taught “Therefore I want you to understand that no one speaking in the Spirit of God ever says “Jesus is accursed!” and no one can say “Jesus is Lord” except in the Holy Spirit.” What does it mean when a Christian says “I believe that Jesus Christ is my Lord”? What faith and trust does the Holy Spirit work in us? Our meditations will be guided by Martin Luther’s Explanation of the 2nd Article of the Creed.

PREVIOUS SERMON SERIES: Jesus’ Return and Jesus’ I AM Teachings
Jesus’ Teachings from Matthew 25 about His Return (Nov. 12, 19, 26)

In Matthew 24 the disciples asked about Jesus’ return in glory. Jesus then gave a series of teachings recorded in chapters 24 and 25 so that His disciples “would not be led astray.”

As he sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?” And Jesus answered them, “See that no one leads you astray. For many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and they will lead many astray. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are but the beginning of the birth pains. Matthew 24:3-8

These three sermons cover Jesus’ teaching in Matthew 25.
