"Far-sighted" | Bryan Rezen

goodshepherdkc Gladstone sermons

As we get older we hope to mature, both in wisdom as well as spirit. As our eyes mature, they begin decrease in ability to see up close. Isn't it fascinating that our long-range eyesight stays more intact than up close? Maybe it's God's design of maturity that as we get older we begin to consider what legacy we'll leave behind for others, rather than focusing on ourselves.

"The Lamp and the Body" | Bryan Rezen

goodshepherdkc Platte County sermons

Many places in the Gospels Jesus refers to a lamp and light, and this metaphor runs throughout his teaching. Jesus is known as the light of the world and in him there is no darkness.

"The Power of Quiet" | Bryan Rezen

goodshepherdkc Gladstone sermons

Jesus was a busy guy, preaching and healing and traveling all over the place. But even he took time regularly to be alone with the Father, to clarify his mission and priorities. If it was important for Jesus to spend quiet time with God, it is important for us as well.

"Xenophobia (fear of people those who are different)" | Bryan Rezen

goodshepherdkc Platte County sermons

A pitch black room. A dark alley. The first day at a new school. We fear these things because of the unknown. It has been said that what we do not understand we worship or fear. When this fear is aimed at people it is called "Xenophobia" fear of that which is foreign or strange. How wide to we draw our circle, and how would Jesus have us treat people outside of it?

"Actions Speak Louder Than Words" | Bryan Rezen

goodshepherdkc Platte County sermons

Our actions show what we value. When we say one thing and do another, what we say doesn’t really matter. This would be considered false teaching if what we teach doesn’t match our actions.

"Going Deeper" | Bryan Rezen

goodshepherdkc Gladstone sermons

Jesus meets Peter on the shore of Galilee and issues an invitation (or calling) to follow him. In order for Peter to follow Christ, he will have to be obedient to a different way of living, to reorient his life, and to leave certain things behind. When he invites him to go deeper out to sea and cast his nets again after Peter had been unsuccessful all night, it required his trust in Jesus. Jesus invites each of us into a deeper calling of discipleship, to leave certain things behind in order to follow him. Are we willing to go deeper with Christ?
