The Gift of Peace; John 20:19-29

The Gift of Peace John 20:19-29, Remsen Bible Fellowship, 07-19-2020 Audio Link Introduction Can you think of the time in life when you were most afraid? I can think of several instances when I was very nervous about how a conversation or a phone call would go. Or there are those times of fearing physical peril, which for me have been mercifully brief-like wondering if my car is going to slide off the road into the ditch on one side or the lake on the other.  Take whatever pit-of-the stomach fear you remember, and add to that a heaping helping of confusion, and that’s where the disciples are in our text this morning. Remember that Mary had gone and told Peter and John about the empty tomb, which they then verified. Mary then meets Jesus in the garden. We know from Matthew 28 and Luke 24 that Jesus then meets with the other women who had come to the tomb, and then he meets Peter (a meeting which is recorded as having happened, never detailed for us), and then with two men walking on

Love Your Enemies

  Audio Link Sermon starts at 8:30 Love Your Enemies 1 Samuel 24, Remsen Bible Fellowship, 03/28/2021 Introduction You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. 46 For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? 47 And if you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? 48 You therefore must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect. These are the words of Jesus in Matthew 5:43-48. Do you find them uncomfortable? I do. Jesus doesn’t say tolerate your enemies, hate your enemies, be understanding of your enemies, or fight your enemies. Jesus says: love your enemies. Pray for those who persecute you.

A Man in the Gap

  Audio Link (Sermon starts around 18 minutes) A Man in the Gap 1 Samuel 12:19-25, Remsen Bible Fellowship, 12/06/2020 Introduction: And all the people said to Samuel, “Pray for your servants to the LORD your God, that we may not die, for we have added to all our sins this evil, to ask for ourselves a king.” And Samuel said to the people, “Do not be afraid; you have done all this evil. Yet do not turn aside from following the LORD, but serve the LORD with your whole heart. And do not turn aside after empty things that cannot profit or deliver, for they are empty. For the LORD will not forsake his people, for his great name’s sake, because it has pleased the LORD to make you a people for himself. Moreover, as for me, far be it from me that I should sin against the LORD by ceasing to pray for you, and I will instruct you in the good and the right way. Only fear the LORD and serve him faithfully with all your heart. For consider what great things he has done for you. But if you still do w
