Sermons by Donnie Johnson (Page 3)
What is the greatest commandment? According to Jesus it is “…you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.” In this introduction to his new teaching series, Pastor Donnie Johnson focuses on how to “Love God with All Your Mind” and explains why protecting one’s mind and thought life is so vital to living the Christian life.
Pastor Donnie takes a look at Jesus through the eyes of Peter and examines how Peter’s understanding of Jesus and who He is changed and deepened over time through five different encounters between the two.
Jesus made His third and final prediction of His own death and resurrection as He prepared to make His triumphal entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. Knowing the horrific death that awaited Him there, He courageously entered the Holy City to accomplish what only He could on the cross.
Pastor Donnie Johnson took a look at the second of three predictions that Jesus made about His own death and resurrection in our Sunday series, “Foretold.”
Ephesians 6:4 Deuteronomy 6:1-7 Deuteronomy 6:20-25 Joshua 4:1-7 Judges 2:10 Psalm 145:3-4
Parenting is hard …. and rewarding. Ephesians gives us a great guidelines for both parents and children (obey, honor, respect, guide, encourage…). We are all adopted into God’s family and through our adoption there is healing for wounds and mending where there is brokenness.
Even in the healthiest of relationships there is conflict. Paul writes a beautiful and powerful guide to the broken church of Corinth. From it we can learn the power of and importance of love. Have hope, be kind and extend grace, always fueled by our our future hope promised by our Lord.
The culture gives us a false premise of marriage. It is a relationship for holiness and not built on the fickle foundations of emotion. The biblical premise of marriage is submission to each other through submission to Christ. It is Christ who completes us, and relationships guided by that principle build up and heal.
Introduction to our new sermon series on marriage and parenting. Marriage is important, marriage is a blessing, and marriage is difficult. Marriage is a living illustration of God’s relationship with his people
Similar to the church in Ephesus, we all drift from our first passions. John gives us all a good reminder in his letter of Revelation, that we need to remember our passion for Christ, repent from our hardening heart and return to to the practices of love.
Where is the Church in Jesus life? Good question, since Jesus only says the word twice. But when He talks about the Church, it is very weighty. We need the Church – to grow, to learn, to love each other. The Church needs us – to encourage each other, to help each other. The Church was born in song, it is an act of worship and God blesses us through the Church as we bless others.
Part of living in God’s presence is talking to God. In John 17, Jesus gives us insight into the relationship that He has with the father and shows us how we can talk to God through PRAYER.
