“Do This in Remembrance of Me.” With the Lord’s Supper, Jesus gave us a gift that takes us into his presence. His Word with the bread and wine bring us into his saving acts of grace completed that very first Easter, but also gifted anew when we receive this meal. It is a foretaste of the heavenly banquet with Jesus, also promised for us in heaven.

Passage: John 12:20-33
Series: General
Duration: 15 mins 34 secs
Jesus says in the gospel reading today, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified” (John 12:20​-33). But what does Jesus mean that the Son of Man will be glorified? He calls us to follow him to the cross, and be met there by our gracious God who is there for us and all in need, and who calls and commissions us to go into the world with hope and new life for all. Here is the hour of glory. (YouTube video of the service including this sermon: https://youtu.be/zhHzbb1EUsw ) [Organ/Choir - Lent 5]

“The Power of God Is in Jesus’ Sacrifice on the Cross.” “More power to you”. Do you know this saying? What is power and do you have it? We often look for meaning in all the wrong places. God says clearly and powerfully, the message of the cross and the person of Jesus in giving his life is God’s power for you. And you have power to share.

Passage: Mark 1:9-15
Series: General
Duration: 14 mins 7 secs
“What time is it?” At the beginning of Mark’s Gospel, Jesus announces that “the time has been fulfilled”. What does this mean for us? Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection bring those who trust in him, sure and eternal life, free from the power of sin, death, and the evil one. But he also calls us to know the time is now to follow where he leads in bringing the gospel to the world. The time is now to dwell in the gospel, and to go with it to the people around us.

Passage: Psalm 51
Series: General
Duration: 9 mins 50 secs
In Psalm 51, David vividly tells us of the reality check he (and we) have because of sin. All humans are guilty of sin, and face God's sentence of death. In Lent, we meet this reality check for ourselves. But this is not the final word. For Lent also gives us the call to focus anew and in new ways on the one who saves: Jesus Christ and his cross - and so Lent is truly a springtime for our souls.

Nelson Mandela’s autobiography is titled 'Long Walk to Freedom'. Mandela did all he could to free his country from the bondage of apartheid. Christ Jesus made the long walk to the cross and from the tomb to set all people free who put their trust in him. New life in Christ brings a wonderful freedom to serve others so that they too may receive the freedom to live and make the life-long walk to freedom with Christ.

Passage: Mark 1:21-28
Series: General
Duration: 16 mins 13 secs
The people are amazed that Jesus teaches with authority. But what is this authority, and what does it mean for them, and for us today? Jesus’ authority is revealed in Mark’s gospel as authority from God to serve, and to give his life in order to bring life to people. Jesus gives his disciples the same authority. How will we use it?
