Soma: 1 Corinthians - Winning & Boasting (as strange as that sounds)


2012.03.04 - Kevin Makins - Soma: 1 Corinthians

Winning & Boasting (as strange as that sounds)

1 Corinthians 9, Philippians 2

Sort of a weird chapter this week. Paul starts off by getting all defensive about how pastors should get paid, and goes off on a sort of tangent about vineyards and soldiers and oxen…

And then he flips everything on it’s head and it all makes sense.

A sermon about rights, privileges, freedom, and just how much it costs to really be a Jesus disciple. 

Advent 2011: Ox

Ox2011.12.11 - Kevin Makins - Advent 2011


Numbers 28, Leviticus 16, 1 Samuel 15, Amos 5, Hosea 6, Psalm 50, Genesis 22, Hebrews 10, Romans 12

The way you view the birth of Jesus depends a lot on where you’re standing.

For Advent this year we are going to look at the Christmas narrative from multiple perspectives, and ask the question: “how did each group view the incarnation?”

This week we look at the ox. What did the ox… think(?!)… about the incarnation?

The ox probably thought about the sacrificial system; all the stories he had heard about the altar growing up. He probably reflected on how so many of his friends ended up there, and wondered if this little child might change everything.

Apparently, the ox thought about all sorts of things.
