Sermons on Jesus
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.
Is your mindset important for your spiritual life? The word “mindset” doesn’t appear in Scripture, but it does appear flipped around as the phrase “set your mind,” and is very important, according to Pastor Donnie Johnson in part 2 of his teaching series, “Love God with All Your Mind.” For example, the way that you think about God, yourself and the world affects your prayer life greatly, and other essential elements of the Christian life.
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.
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.”
Jesus foretold of his death and resurrection. Peter’s response was two fold 180° apart. How do we respond? Pray, Read Scripture and Fellowship!
John 20:19-31 Jesus calls for belief, but he is gracious with doubters. The opposite of faith is not doubt. It is pride. Our doubts are resolved not by having all of our questions answered, but from being with Jesus.
Luke 24:13-35Luke 24:1-9
Real love requires sacrifice. That is just what Jesus did. He sacrificed so that we may be reconciled. Gods plan of our reconciliation is something angels long to look on.
Many of us have asked, “who is God?” We have a God that is relational. God is tri – unity, the trinity. Relational since before creation. And He speaks human because He wants a relationship with us.
