Sermons on Faith
Today’s introductory message to a new summer series on the Book of James focuses on the first four verses, the background of the author (the brother of Jesus), and James’ immediate encouragement to believers to count all suffering and trials as joy … say what? How do we do that? Pastor Donnie gives specific help to do just that.
Ephesians 6:4 Deuteronomy 6:1-7 Deuteronomy 6:20-25 Joshua 4:1-7 Judges 2:10 Psalm 145:3-4
Elisha sees the hills full of God’s army. There is much more going on in reality than we suspect. What if we lived our lives with this in mind. God give us sight.
Naaman seeks healing from Elisha. When Naaman sets his pride aside he is transformed, physically and spiritually. God does amazing things from the most humble and faithful.
God uses Elisha to provide, heal and to point to Jesus. God will use what little we have to make much. Be tenacious an trusting in faith. – All is well with my soul –
Elijah invests in the next generation, he calls Elisha to the service of God. Elisha, “burns the yokes” of his past and asks for double blessings of the Lords spirit. God blesses a nation through revival. Pray for revival in our land.
The time of Elijah was very different than now, but humans are not so different. We need to know who God is and who we are. Ask God to help us identify our idols and take them to task.
God provides! We look at a story of how God provides for Elijah in remarkable ways Though God’s provision for you will not likely come from ravens dropping food He will provide generously and powerfully in your life.
Genesis 32 Hosea 12:2-6 Psalms 8 Taking a deep canonical reading of the story of Jacob wrestling with God, reveals some very intense concepts. Concepts of identity and reality that encourage us, as believers, today.
