To come in to the Presence of God is to see yourself as you really are.... The sermon at Carlock begins at the beginning of the recording and the St. Paul's sermon begins at minute 24.
Is pride allowed in the Christian life? We will address this today in the sermon.
In this message, we will discuss the freedom we have, through the empowerment of the Holy Spirit, to overcome anger toward others. We will examine Jesus' attitude toward His disciple's anger and how the heavenly realm of angels deals with the offensive so that we can better understand what God's will is for when we encounter frustrations.
We've all had our deliverances. We ought to proclaim the Name of Jesus, and tell our redemption story, but certain things get in the way, which will be discussed in this message. We were made to worship Him. We were made to glorify Him. We were made to proclaim His Name!
The blessed Trinity represents God in three Persons, whole and complete. Christ wants to brings us in to wholeness with Him. But how is that possible? This sermon will focus primarily on the workings of the Holy Spirit, Who brings us in to greater peace, joy, and completeness in Christ Jesus.
Pentecost empowered the people of God to live out their life as a blessed and favored people, but also as a royal priesthood. Too many times, we are living in maintenance mode, just doing the bare minimum to get by, when instead, Jesus commanded that we go and make disciples. Are you just "trying" to maintain your faith, or are you truly living it out?
Gratitude is an attitude we are not born with. It takes practice! But when we consider the bountiful spiritual blessings, we can become overwhelmed with a grateful heart. When we grow in gratefulness, we become more aware that those around us contribute to our blessings, and we, in turn, should bless them. That is a practice which can also take practice, But in doing so, your joy will be increased, and so will the joy of others as well.
Have you ever prayed, only to never receive an answer? Ever prayer for something and never gotten it? Have you ever wondered why things sometimes just don't work out the way we think they should?
Maybe you have said you would lay down your life for Christ, but have you truly done so? Do you truly love others with the same love which God has you? But how can we? How is it possible?
There comes a time when enough is enough, and we come to the end of our rope and we must rely on God completely. We will delve more deeply in to this matter as we examine Psalm 23.
