Sermons by Donnie Johnson
Pastor Donnie is taking a fresh look at the life and ministry of Jesus each Sunday before Easter, looking at His encounter with a different person each week. Today he looks at Jesus with John the Baptist.
Among spiritual practices (fueled by the grace of God) that help a Christian grow in his faith, Pastor Donnie here looks at the benefits of attending church regularly.
Turning our daily prayer from a dutiful exercise to a delightful time spent with our Father who so deeply loves us is invaluable to the lifelong process of growing and maturing in our Christian faith.
How can we grow and mature in our Christian faith? According to Pastor Donnie Johnson, practicing some valuable Christian disciplines, including being daily being in the Word of God, helps make us available to God to work His grace in our lives.
Pastor Donnie encourages us to engage in spiritual practices that will strengthen our walks with Christ in the year ahead.
Daniel, as an old man, refuses to stop praying to God even though he knows he could be thrown into the lions’ den because of it. There is much we can learn from Daniel about how we should live our lives today, and about how God uses ALL things for the good of those who love Him.
What contributed to the faith of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, three Hebrew young men who would not obey the King of Babylon’s command to bow down and worship his idol? And when they were cast into a fiery furnace for their crime, who was that fourth man walking through the fire with them?
The story of God’s reluctant prophet Jonah and his failed attempt to flee from God is one of the most well-known stories in the Bible that has much to say about God’s character of grace of mercy, and foreshadows Jesus and His death and resurrection.
Here in part 7, Pastor Donnie takes a fresh look at Joshua and the battle of Jericho.
What do you do when you don’t know what to do? We’ve all been there, and the Israelites were definitely there when they were trapped between the Red Sea in front and the Egyptian army chasing them from behind. After fear overcame them, they finally did what was needful … in desperation, they cried out to the Lord for help.
How can lesser humans understand who an all-powerful, all-knowing God is, what Yahweh is like? The 10 plagues that God used to judge Egypt do much to reveal how much greater the God of the people of Israel is than any of the pantheon of gods that were worshipped in Egypt at the time of the Exodus.
How is Jesus pictured in the Old Testament story of Moses and the burning bush? Pastor Donnie takes a close look at that remarkable story in Exodus and how God showed up then for Moses and His people, and how Jesus shows up for us today.
