God of Hope | Micah 7

Corey Farcas preached a Micah 7 verse-by-verse sermon explaining the big story of the gospel and the crushed serpent’s connection to Jesus. Listen to how Christ takes all our injustices and rights all our wrongs.

Our Best Religion | Micah 6

Today is the last sermon I’m preaching in our series on Micah. Next week my friend Corey Farcas from seminary is finishing us up. He loves the Bible and has sat in on a few classes with Terry so I hope you’ll come and listen. But since this is my last week in our God of Justice series I really want to sum up what it’s all about. Our passage actually does a great job of this. In verses 1-2…

The Shepherd King | Micah 5

King Hezekiah faced some serious obstacles in his lifetime. During his lifetime the Assyrian army, a military force known for their brutality and strength, ransacked Judah and gathered right outside Jerusalem’s walls. The king of Assyria, Sennacherib, sent his messenger to mock Hezekiah and the God of Israel (Isa 36:1-2). We see this in verse 1.  Micah 5:1 Marshal your troops now, city of troops, for a siege is laid against us. They will strike Israel’s ruler on the cheek…

A Day of Justice & Peace | Micah 4

I want you to imagine a single day of perfect justice and peace. What would that be like?  All the wars around the world would cease.  All the jails and prisons would empty.  It would be a boring day on Wall Street.  Washington DC would be quiet and Hollywood would be clothed.

Just Power | Micah 3

When you think of “power” what do you think of? The pink energizer bunny? Your local power station? Powerade? Maybe you think of superheroes and villains each have a power they can wield to either help or hurt humanity. Maybe you think of your boss or the President. Each one has power.  What is power? Is power the strongest person in the room? Is power violence? Power can mean a lot of things but when I say power today I’m…

Justice Served | Micah 2

What is the greatest commandment in the Bible? “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.” (Matt 22:37) What is the second greatest commandment? “Love your neighbor as yourself.” (Matt 22:39) So the greatest commandments are “love God” and “love others.”  What is idolatry? Idolatry is when we break the first and greatest commandment. It’s when we love anything more than God. Our sermon series is God of Justice.…

Why Micah? | Micah 1

Did you know? “When the Library of Congress in Washington DC was rebuilt in the late nineteenth century, prominent religious leaders, after considering notable quotes from all known religious literature, chose Micah 6:8 as the motto for the alcove of religion.” The inscription reads, “What doth the Lord require of thee but to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God.”  Chances are that most of us have heard verses from Micah, such as this promise…
