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.
Paul was the least likely candidate for Christian evangelism, having hunted down Christians and condemning them, often killing them, but God chose him to be one of the greatest evangelists of the New Testament. How many times do we judge another as less than us, as evil....when God don't make no trash?!? Everyone has Kingdom potential! Let's learn more about that in this message...
Perception of the human eye will differ according to how the eye is made and how the brain processes that. Unfortunately, the human eye cannot perceive everything. One must have spiritual eyes to be able to see the unseen. Let's talk about that...
Many people are holding on to hurts and shame. Mary mourned so deeply for Jesus that she didn't recognize He was right there with her, and she was so disillusioned with that hurt that she forgot that He had to die to fulfill God's purpose.. Instead of holding on to hurts, we should strive to hold on to Christ, and not just Christ crucified, but Christ resurrected! We have HOPE!!! We have a PROMISE!
As Jesus came in to Jerusalem, riding on a donkey, He represented the opposite of what believers expected the Messiah to be. They had certain expectations and became disenchanted with what they came to find, for Christ showed the true way to The Kingdom, and He calls us to imitate Him as well.
The Lord is making a way, His way - His will to be done on the earth as His will is done in heaven. Do you perceive it? Examine your life today and recognize God's unseen hand in your life and give Him praise!
The story of the prodigal son stands out as more than a "I once was lost but now am found" narrative. This story has a much deeper meaning, a dire warning to the redeemed. This sermon will address three lessons we can glean from the characters involved.
Christians aren't born - they are made. There is much work and tending to our heart as the Holy Spirit prepares us to bare fruit. Can you, endure the pruning? Will you?
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!
