Sermons on Spiritual Discipline

Practical Faith – Pt. 1

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.

Love God with All Your Mind – Pt. 3

What do you do with the inevitable fear and anxieties of this life? Pastor Donnie Johnson uses the story in Isaiah 36 and 37 as an example of what Christians should do when faced with scary situations, whether real or imagined, that cause anxiety and worry. In that passage, King Hezekiah was faced with a very real existential threat when Jerusalem was surrounded by the threat and might of the Assyrian Army, bent on destroying the King and his capital city. How did the king respond? And what did the Lord do for Hezekiah?

Practicing the Presence of God – Part 2

How do we live life in God’s presence? We need to know that God speaks, and we need God’s Word more than food. God’s Word is precious. Actively put yourself in Jesus’ path by reading His Holy Word.

Practicing the Presence of God – Part 1

How do we live in God’s presence? Receive His gracious gift and act on the virtue of faith. It isn’t all about working for faith, it isn’t all about waiting on Jesus, there is a concurrence. Work with the gifts God has given you to produce fruit through virtue and love.

Revolutionary Prayer – Part 2

Matthew 6:7-9 Romans 8:15-16 Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

Revolutionary Prayer – Part 1

Luke 11:1 Matthew 6:5-13 2 Corinthians 1:11 Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

The Life – Part 3

Gathering to worship with the church is a practice that helps us to abide in Christ. The church is a “who” far more than it is a “where.” People are worshipers by nature; they don’t choose whether they will worship, they can only decide who or what to worship. The church gathers to worship God together.

How to Grow – Pt. 4

Throughout this series we have looked at 3 core habits of the Christian: reading Scripture, attending church, and today’s topic, prayer. Prayer is not complicated; a young child can pray. But it can be difficult! No one feels like they are an expert at prayer. Everyone feels like they need to improve. Lets explore how to grow in our prayer lives.
