What is an ice cream scoop capable of doing?  It is capable of holding liquids, scooping cold ice cream, being used as a hammer, digging in the dirt.  Certainly, there are things that an ice cream scoop is not capable of.  But, it has many uses...and the best day in an ice cream scoop’s life is when it is called into service on behalf of the Graeter’s employee.  It becomes a means of grace in the form of ice cream. We determine an object's capabilities by examining its form and intended function.   What are you capable of doing? Lessons:  — Like,...

St. Luke Columbus Sermon Podcast

Martin Luther longed for a church that proclaimed the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He wasn’t just looking for the church to be better. Luther longed for a church where grace was shared and freedom proclaimed in Christ alone. What do you long for today?

Have you settled for 2nd best in life thinking “good enough” is the best it gets, and it is better than nothing? Is it possible that your longing for...

Our political views are shaped by a number of variables: our backgrounds, education, and personal experiences to name a few. It’s easy to feel like our view is the right one, but the person beside you is more precious to God than your political view.   As citizens of the Kingdom of God, we are governed first and foremost by the Law of Christ (“love one another as I have loved you”, Christ), which precedes all our political viewpoints.       Next Steps:  Listen, Learn, and Love   Lessons:    —  Like, comment & subscribe to stay...

Your favorite candidate will win or lose based on how our country votes this November. However, the church will win or lose based on our behavior between now and then. Next steps: Pray for oneness. Heavenly Father, make us one so we can influence many. Prayer of Jesus, what he wanted to be protected. Look for an opportunity to love unconditionally someone with whom you disagree politically.

St. Luke Columbus Sermon Podcast

Many divide society into sacred and secular spaces.  Certainly, churches are considered sacred spaces where religious activities are conducted and secular spaces, like a park or government building, are considered secular, a place where attitudes and activities have no religious background to them.  And yet, much of the books of Acts takes place in public, secular spaces like marketplaces, calling into question the sacred/secular divide.  Today we will discover what happens when God crosses this false divide and the impact it has on the world around us.     Next...

Being caught in a challenging position can have us backpedaling, trying to find a way to minimize our failure. But in the end, the cover-up almost always becomes worse than the original offense. With God we have the freedom to come clean, because God knows all about us in the first place. Too often we fail to recognize this and we run and hide, and cover ourselves, as if God cannot see us. True freedom, and true relationship comes with our willingness to be fully exposed before God. We may not be ready to try this out with our friends and family, but that should not stop us from trying it with God.
 
Living a life of open confession before God can create a freedom of our soul that allows us experience the full impact of God on our lives.
