The Lord is My Shepherd (Psalm 23:1)

Preached at the San Diego Rescue Mission on Monday morning, March 19, 2018. Satisfaction is difficult. It is hard. The Rolling Stones wrote a song many years ago that said, “I can’t get no satisfaction.” It seems that people are always trying to sell you some new way to get satisfied. Get on this diet. Buy gold. Buy these stocks. Watch this show. Get this education. Follow these seven relationship […]

A Psalm of Thanksgiving (Psalm 100)

Preached at the San Diego Rescue Mission on Wednesday morning, November 22, 2017. Sometimes we don’t feel like being thankful. Sometimes life is so chaotic, so full of junk, so broken, that it seems there is nothing to be thankful for. Without God, life is meaningless. It will feel hopeless. God has given us hope in Christ. When we believe in Jesus, we become thankful. Thankfulness is ultimately our response […]

Boldness in Christ (1 John 4:7-19)

Preached at the San Diego Rescue Mission on Wednesday morning, November 8, 2017. Fear is a terrible thing, isn’t it? We get worried. We get afraid. We worry about what is going to happen. We worry about consequences. The Bible tells us that we don’t have to live in fear. Instead, we can live a life of love. A bold Christian life is a life of love. As a teenager, […]

Be About Christ (1 John 3:16-4:6)

Preached at the San Diego Rescue Mission on Wednesday morning, November 1, 2017. Maybe you’re like me… you can’t stand hypocrites. People that say one thing, and do the other. They’re like actors, playing a part. You think you know them by the things they say, but when you see who they are behind the mask, it’s a different story. Too many Christians are this way. You shouldn’t just talk […]

Jesus Changes Lives (1 John 3:4-15)

Preached at the San Diego Rescue Mission on Wednesday morning, October 18, 2017. I was reading a quote this week that said, “Change requires energy.” We want change, but doing what it takes to change is hard. We try to change our diet, but having to walk by those cakes and cookies every day? Hard! We try to stop smoking, but walking by those smokers on the deck every day? […]

Truth is Found in Christ (1 John 2:18-27)

Preached at the San Diego Rescue Mission on Wednesday morning, September 27, 2017. There are a lot of people trying to sell you their truth. Beverage companies will say that they have the best tasting soda. Sports teams will try to convince you that they have the best team for the coming year. Politicians will try to convince you that they have the best ideas for the country. Religions will […]

Victory in Christ (1 John 2:12-17)

Preached at the San Diego Rescue Mission on Wednesday morning, September 13, 2017. Are you tired of feeling defeated? This is the second, third, or tenth time you’ve attempted to get ahead. You’ve tried before, and failed. You’re tired of feeling like you’ve let others down. You’re tired of feeling like you let yourself down. Your tired of being tired. I want you to know that the will of God […]

Love like Jesus (1 John 2:3-11)

Preached in the San Diego Rescue Mission on Wednesday morning, August 30, 2017. Have you ever heard a person complain about fake Christians? They look at a person’s mistakes and say, “That’s why I can’t stand Christians. They preach love, and then look at how they act. They’re all fake!” They don’t complain about Jesus, because Jesus is hard to argue against. So, they point to Christians they don’t like […]

Secure in the Presence of God (Psalm 122)

Preached at the San Diego Rescue Mission on Wednesday morning, August 23, 2017. Have you ever thought about where you go to for safety and security? There are a lot of options in the world for security. We might purchase a weapon to keep us secure, or move to a safer neighborhood. But where do we get our ultimate security? While many seek security, they unfortunately miss the security that […]

Hurtful Words and Wisdom that Heals (James 3)

Preached at the San Diego Rescue Mission on Wednesday morning, August 16, 2017. We destroy each other with harsh words. We hurt the ones we love through words that weren’t thought out well. We use hurtful words to try and bring others down. Harsh words hurt, but God’s wisdom heals. This past weekend, racism reared its ugly head in Charlottesville, Virginia. Racism is evil. There is nothing Christian about racism. […]

Humility is Being like Christ (Philippians 2:1-11)

Preached at the San Diego Rescue Mission on Wednesday morning, August 2, 2017. Humility goes against all that we are made of. We don’t have a grasp of what it’s truly about. We might think that it’s about saying the right words, apologizing, and giving the appropriate, “I’m sorry.” But it’s so much more than that. Humility is being like Christ. Pride is all over our society. It is celebrated! […]
