Within the context of the human heart, we have a longing to belong; a longing to be a part of something much greater than we are. How we fill that longing is a matter of choice, acceptance, and faith.
Perhaps the title of this week's sermon is an eye catcher, but the words of Satan as he tempted Jesus in the wilderness are also very shocking. He promoted pride, materialism, power, etc. Jesus battled Satan by KNOWING God's true Word. Do you know it? Could you recognize Satan twisting God's Word or twisting the Holy Spirit's direction in your life? Wake up!
Have you taken time to step back, to stand amazed in the glory of God? Sometimes there are things that get in the way of our worship. What is hindering you from experiencing God more fully?
LIfe is hard. Some of the challenges we face are quite a lot to deal with. But many allow their hardships to break them and make them bitter in life. Joseph recognized God's hand in his situation, trusting in God despite being sold in to slavery by his own brothers. This message of "loving our enemies" can really make us better, not bitter, if we trust God as Jospeh. It's time we have a foretaste of the blessings to come in the next life. Let's experience the peace which surpasses all understanding right here and right now by trusting that God is with us, even in hardships, and they will help us grow closer to Him.
How do we find peace? Jeremiah has a lot to say about this, and it may just surprise you. Join me as we discuss in this message ways to find greater peace in this world.
The Church is a ship, floating upon turbulent waters. Jesus calls us to "cast in to the deep", but what does that mean for us today, spiritually speaking?
Being a Christian can be quite a challenge. This sermon will address that, and it will also address the required transparency of the Light which resides in us.
It is important that we recognize that we are all broken vessels that need mending. Being as we are the body of Christ, let us all work together to be one, to be unified for the same purpose, allowing the Great Physician to heal us of our brokenness so that we might all work together do do His will.
Jesus transformed water in to wine. He wants to transform you as well. From the waters of baptism to the workings of sanctification by the Holy Spirit, God is wanting to do a brand new thing in you. It begins with an empty vessel, and that can only come by the grace of God. Learn more on this subject in this sermon.
Baptism of the Lord Sunday is a day in which we bring to remembrance our baptism, our covenant with God. He is a God of covenant, yet are we keeping our side of that covenant? Do we even know what that covenant says? Have we forgotten? Have we allowed dust to collect?
