As we peek into the future, we recognize that there are inevitable storms ahead.  In Joshua’s time, Israel sent spies into the promised land and discovered inevitable opposition.  How did they respond?   Courage.  Faith.  Trust.  Partnership   Subscribe to stay updated with the latest content.

The phrase used at Westerville North HS is AllN.  Similarly we are All In   From coaching, I know that it takes every single player to create a win.     We move forward together, united as one, into the future God has prepared for us.  We need all of us, not some of us to make this transition well.     The disciples eventually replaced Judas.  Jesus prayed for our unity.  Together we move ahead.   Subscribe to stay updated with the latest content.

Transition, Part 1: Mind the Gap // Mike Weaver show art Transition, Part 1: Mind the Gap // Mike Weaver

St. Luke Columbus Sermon Podcast

The people of Israel were at a transition point in their history.  They had arrived at a new chapter in their history, a place no one had been.  Across the river was the land God had promised.  Moses died and Joshua was chosen to lead the people through the river into a new beginning.   Transitions mean change and change brings stress with it.  Things will not be as they were.  There is an inherent risk in change, in transitions, but there is also beauty as we anticipate what will be.   A new chapter in St. Luke’s history is upon us.  We get...

St. Luke Columbus Sermon Podcast

Our greatest reality and hope is that, by grace alone, we have been made beloved children of God and inheritors of God’s eternal kingdom. GRACE is the final word I leave with this church family. Grace was the first word that I preached on September 10, 2000, and the final word I left with the family of St. Paul’s Lutheran in Maumee, Ohio on August 20, 2000.   Article IV of the Augsburg Confession on Justification teaches that we cannot be justified before God by our own strength, merits or works, but are freely justified for Christ’s sake through faith, when we believe that we are...

The Final Four, Part 3: Mission // Steve Brown show art The Final Four, Part 3: Mission // Steve Brown

St. Luke Columbus Sermon Podcast

Our mission to connect people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ is why we exist as a church family. Jesus’ first command to the first person (Mary) who saw him raised from the dead was to “Go and tell.” That is also what Jesus told Peter and the other disciples to do. Becoming a congregation that is foundationally evangelical will mean that we live more for others than ourselves.    Subscribe to stay updated with the latest content.

Handing on What We’ve Received // Mike Weaver show art Handing on What We’ve Received // Mike Weaver

St. Luke Columbus Sermon Podcast

Maundy Thursday is a night in which we experience a rich continuity with the past.  Paul begins the reading in 1 Corinthians with the statement, “I received from the Lord what I also handed on to you…” referring to the passing on of the Lord’s Supper to the believers in Corinth.  Jesus gave the supper to us, and we in turn give it to the next generation.  We share in an experience of God’s grace that has been experienced for centuries.     Jesus says a similar thing about washing feet, “I have set you an example, that you also should do as I have done...

What Draws You to Worship? // Mike Weaver show art What Draws You to Worship? // Mike Weaver

St. Luke Columbus Sermon Podcast

What draws you to worship?  On Palm Sunday we read about the crowds who worshiped Jesus as the coming Messiah, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.  Like a moth drawn to a flame, the crowds were drawn to Jesus.  Throughout the Gospels, they followed Jesus from place to place.  He had something they needed, something no one else could give.   Are we the same?  Are we drawn to worship Jesus as well?  If so, why?  What is it for you that draws you to worship Jesus as Lord?   Subscribe to stay updated with the latest content.

St. Luke Columbus Sermon Podcast

In our day, it is a primary mission of the evil one to divide a congregation, just like he has divided the Church in the past. When a congregation is divided, lives are wrecked and the mission is severely crippled.  St. Luke has many differences within our family over politics, economics, human sexuality, gender identity and roles, leadership, worship styles, and more. While we should never dismiss these because they are very important to each other, they should not divide us nor motivate any of us to walk away from our St. Luke family. Remaining united in the body of Christ was a top...

As Christians, we live our lives always in view of the cross.  God has generously given us all things, including himself, and asks us to live in this way of generosity.   The question Capital One asks consumers is, “What’s in your wallet?”  God asks, “What’s in your heart?”  God doesn’t need our time, talents, and money, but we need to be generous.  It is not only good for us, it is also what God desires of us, that we live with glad and generous hearts.
