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.
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.
