Sermons on Faith
Humanity has a desperate need for meaning. Jesus offers us that meaning and a life abundant.
Faith preceded the law. It is not by following rules that we are redeemed it is by faith. What is your faith growth plan?
We all have a testimony, a user review if you will. Paul’s testimony is all about the Grace of Jesus and how Paul’s chief purpose is to glorify HIM. What moments in your life were “only God could do that” moments?
It is good to ask questions, they help us understand ourselves better. When God asks questions it helps us know ourselves better and it helps us know Him better. When the Israelites were trapped between the Red Sea and the Egyptian army God asked Moses, “Why do you cry out to me … go forward.” Sometimes that is what we need to here. Have faith, trust in Him and move forward.
Ecclesiastes – Pt.7 Money is a tool, don’t let it become an idol. Work hard, work honest and trust in the Lord to provide.
The day to day Christian walk can be very challenging. Look to Jesus as out model. The source of our help and the source of grace.
When you look forward into the future it is good to reflect on the past as well. Hebrews 11 gives us a reflection of the faithful that “the world is not worthy”. If the climax of the Bible is you and your faithful service to God, how does it read? Is it worthy?
Overcome the obstacles to faith. God is bigger than your fears. God is bigger than all of your sins. File Chapter 11 on your fears, your pride, your sin and receive the grace He offers.
Hebrews 11:8-22 Hebrews 12:1-2
As believers in Christ we are under Chapter 11 protection. We place our lives in the protection of Gods promises. What is faith? What is it not? What does faith do? Don’t get trapped in today’s false dichotomy of faith. Have a firm, settled, confidence in God’s plans.
