This is the first in a sermon series entitled “Broken and Mended.” It’s about how God breaks us with crippling grace over our sin, and in that grace gives us a new identity.

The Bible teaches one of the most powerful ways a Christ-follower can distinguish herself for the glory of God. It might surprise you to learn what that is: submitting to human authority.

Perhaps people associate submission with weakness, impotence, conformity. But the Bible consistently teaches how Christians should live and respect and submit to authorities. While there are situations calling for thoughtful civil disobedience, the general principle is this: stand out by submitting. Strange, but true.

“Deeper Unity in a Deeper Diversity”

This was the second in a two part sermon series for a Race & Culture Emphasis (RACE) I preached at my church, which is a Chinese heritage church. To find a Sermon Discussion Guide for this sermon, click here.

What do I mean by “Chinese heritage church”? I mean that it’s a church with a heritage of being Chinese. My church was started by Chinese people and in Chinese languages. But going to the future, only God knows what will happen. You don’t have to identify as ethnically Chinese to belong to our church. But you probably have to be OK with being around a bunch of Chinese people!

PS – Sorry for talking too fast at times during this sermon!

Cross Barriers (Race & Culture Emphasis 2016, part 1)
January 10, 2016

I’ve been reflecting upon race, culture, ethnicity, and diversity actively for the better part of the past 10 years. This begins a sermon series on Race and Culture Emphasis. I’m thinking to preach on this topic around January in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. I also wanted to preach on this in light of the fact that I’ve been a part of churches with an ethnic heritage.

Some people have asked if I preached this sermon in light of any specific recent events. The answer is “no.” I’m not responding or reacting to any one event. Rather, I’ve been pondering this topic for years, and now feel like my biblical reflection is at a point where it may be helpful to preach on this topic to my church and to whomever may hear.
