The Darker the Night, the Brighter the Light | Sermon

Pastor Bramwell preached this sermon on Matthew 25:1-13 for the Last Sunday of the Church Year on November 20, 2022.

Sermon Notes

The Kingdom of God is yours because you are…?

How does St. John describe Jesus in the first chapter of his gospel?

What were you given when you were baptized?

Who is your current oil dealer?

What is the oil for your lamp?

How will the Day of the Lord come? 

How can you see it?

St. Mark Lutheran Church posts Rev. Bramwell’s sermons online for the sake of the members of our congregation who are unable to gather with us due to illness, work, etc. This resource is not intended to discourage anyone from gathering in person around God’s Word and Sacraments. Matthew 18:20 and Hebrews 10:25 make it clear that God’s Divine Service is meant to be experienced physically with other Christians.

We give thanks to God that these sermons are a blessing to you and pray that if you’re in Humboldt County, you will join us on Sunday mornings at 10:30 AM as God wills. (See the map below for directions.) If you’re not within driving distance of Ferndale CA, we encourage you to use the Church Locator at to find a church near you so you can gather in person with the communion of saints in your area.
