The Beginning of Communion with Christ is Union with Christ

Rev. Henry Bartsch

Ephesians 1:3-10 & 2:1-10

This sermon considers the doctrine of the communion of the saints. Communion means a shared participation with a person or group of people. Christians have communion with God, and communion with other people who have communion with God! However, the communion of the saints has a starting place, union with Christ. Being "in Christ" is an unspeakable blessing for all believers.

The Christian Church, More or Less Pure

Rev. Henry Bartsch

Revelation 2:12-17

No church on earth is perfect. The church today is more or less pure. To be faithful and grow in truth, love for God, and love for neighbor the church must remain faithful to Scripture. If the church compromises with the unbelieving system of the world or out rightly doubts the Bible she will become less and less effective. However, if we follow God's word we will grow in purity.

What Kind of God is Jehovah?

Rev. Henry Bartsch

Genesis 39

It was the Lord's will to enroll Joseph in his good plan to bring Israel down to Egypt. God enlists all his people to do various things for his gospel purposes. However, what kind of God is God? Joseph found out when his wicked brothers sold him as a slave. He was not disappointed. No one who comes to God is ever disappointed. God is kind, helpful, and blesses his people.

Being the Church

Rev. Henry Bartsch

Matthew 28:16-20

When the church is being what the church is to be God’s kingdom is advanced over the kingdom of darkness by the church. What is the church to be and do? Christ's great commission is the sufficient mandate for the church today. When the church preaches the gospel, baptizes, disciples people in the Word of Christ, and practices Christ-like love God's kingdom grows. Thankfully, Christ has promised to be with us till the task is done.

Joseph the Dreamer

Rev. Henry Bartsch

Genesis 37:1-11

The train of events to bring Israel into Egypt is set in motion through the pride, jealousies, and consequent alienation between Joseph and his brothers. Do you think a family such as this is without hope? Families struggle with sin but God and his grace is greater than sin; and this gives hope.

God Works in our Personal Lives Too

Rev. Henry Bartsch

Genesis 35:1-15

God through many trials and difficulties changed Jacob personally. God as a loving Father worked in Jacob to make him more prayerful, trusting, and hopeful. This is why he confessed God to be his Shepherd. In his wise guidance God not only works in human history to accomplish his good purposes; he works in our personal lives too.

The Christian and Divorce

Rev. Henry Bartsch

Matthew 19:1-10

God's perfect design for marriage is one woman and one man together for life. Sin mars that perfect pattern and, left to his own devices, even Christians would permit divorce for any reason. However, God's Word gives clear limitations on such actions, and Christ's church must not go beyond the given limitations. Even though there is such allowance for legitimate divorce, brokenness and pain still ensue. We trust Christ and His ministry to bring grace in such trying times.
