In this sermon, I share an illustration about a veiled bride.  At His return, Christ will unveil His bride, not only to reveal his glory to her, but to reveal her glory to Himself.  I could think of no better picture to represent this idea than a photograph of Princess Grace Kelly.  Beautiful huh?

The Mystery of Glory:  The Goal of God’s Future is that he is preparing the True You to worship the True God in a True World

Colossians 1:27 – To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.

2 Corinthians 3:16-18 – But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. 17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 18 And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate (Behold, Gaze upon) the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory (from one degree of glory to another), which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.

In this sermon I use an illustration about “bitter crushed almonds” and their relationship to delicious Amaretto.  The picture on the left is of two cups of steamy, sweet, Amaretto Coffee – my favorite!

Shame & the Divine Scapegoat – a sermon by Tim Melton

In this sermon I talk about the incredible power of Shame.  I talk at length about the story of Bill Buckner, former first baseman for the Boston Red Sox.  At the greatest moment of his career, when everything was on the line, Bill Buckner failed to do what he had done a million times before – field a slow roller to first base.  We are all Bill Buckners.  Not only do we fail in our obvious weaknesses, but we also are headed for failure, even in our greatest areas of strength.  This is why people need the saving power of Jesus Christ.  Not only does He save us from our sins and our obvious weaknesses, but He also rescues us from our supposed strengths.  Not only does the cross cover our guilt, but it also dramatically and powerfully covers our shame.  Glory to Christ!
