A Prayer of Trust in Trouble

Pastor Matt Tarr – PM Sermon

Scripture: Psalm 4

Christians everywhere have experienced slander, misrepresentation, and suffering, and although the historical context of Psalm 4 is unknown, it is clear that David is deeply distressed by those who have turned against him. Nevertheless, David doesn’t despair, but turns to God and then calls the rebellious to consider their ways and repent.

Impediments to Prayer

Pastor Matt Tarr – AM Sermon

Scripture: Mark 11:22-25

As Jesus and His disciples return to Jerusalem, the disciples notice the fig tree Jesus cursed the day before. Dead from the inside out, the tree illustrated the uselessness and coming destruction of the Temple. But with the Temple gone, how could believers commune with God? In this passage, Jesus gives three necessities to effectual prayer.

Add. Ref.: James 4:2-3

A Theology of Sleep

Pastor Matt Tarr – PM Sermon

Scripture: Psalm 3

David’s life is in complete chaos all around him; he is at one of the lowest points in his life. He is being pursued by thousands to be killed at the command of his very own son Absalom. What’s more? They even believe that they are on God’s side. So how is it that David can respond so confidently that he would sleep so soundly under such circumstances?

Add. Ref.: 2 Samuel 7 & 14

Deadly Blights

Pastor Matt Tarr – AM Sermon

Scripture: Mark 11:12-21

The day after Jesus’ triumphal entry, he now enters into the city of Jerusalem. Perhaps the Jews believed as the Messiah He would overthrow the Roman garrison, but undoubtedly to their surprise, He overthrows their temple and confronts their hypocritical worship.

Add. Ref.: 2 Timothy 3:4-5; Isaiah 5:1-7

Why We Baptize (Part 2)

Pastor Matt Tarr – PM Sermon

Scripture: Selected Scriptures

On this special Baptism Sunday, Pastor Matt Tarr talks about just how significant baptism is in the life of the believer. Not only is it commanded by our Lord and therefore a matter of obedience, but it is also an important illustration of the Lord’s work in the Christian’s life.

Worship the King

Pastor Matt Tarr – PM Sermon

Scripture: Psalm 2

This Psalm manifests the greatness of God in a way nowhere else seen in the entire Bible. It presents the foolish rebellious hearts of men, but all the summation of their rebellion against God invokes from Him a peculiar response: He laughs, and then commands that all should repent and bow to the true King.

The Sincere Submission of the Savior

Pastor Matt Tarr – AM Sermon

Scripture: Mark 11:1-11

After 10 chapters of growing anticipation, in chapter 11, Jesus and His disciples finally arrive for the Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem. However, the true meaning of the event is shrouded in tradition. What this text really reveals, is the sincere submission of the Savior, and the false submission of the crowds.

Add. Ref.: Dan. 9:24-25; John 12:9-12; Zech. 9:9; Phil. 2:5-11; Rev. 19:1-13; Luke 19:41-44

The Last Healing

Pastor Matt Tarr – AM Sermon

Scripture: Mark 10:46-52

Over the last several weeks, Jesus has been instructing His disciples as to the true nature of discipleship as the day of His crucifixion draws near. Even so, they still struggle with the concept of humility and servanthood, and are even stunned to hear of the impossibility for such a righteous, rich young ruler to enter the Kingdom of God. If he can’t, who can? Undoubtedly they were even more surprised to discover that Bartimaeus could.

Add. Ref.: Joshua 6:1-2; 6:26; John 20:15-16; Ephesians 4:17-19
