Sermons on The Gospel
You’ve not only thought it, you’ve probably said it. “The world is against me.” But reality can often be far from it. Joseph (and Jacob) have every reason to think that. But they learn that God is actually working through those very struggles for thier good. He is doing the same thing in your life.
As Paul faces attack on his work in Corinth, he defends not only his own integrity, but the gospel itself.
Because Jesus Is Risen we will never be the same. Will you have an encounter with Jesus and continue to live the same? Or will you be transformed and never be the same?
The weight of our sin can seem heavy and unbearable. But the gospel is good news that Jesus took on our sin.
What would it be like to receive an invitation from God to a party, but turn it down because you had something better to do? Jesus tells a story that exposes our excuses as a cover for different priorities.
Our sometimes ridiculous excuses are a way we minimize our sin. But if we are always minimizing, we are never growing from it. This message is a challenge to stop excusing and start killing our sin.
Do you know who you are? We’re not talking about who your driver’s license says you are. But do you know your identity as a child of God and how that impacts your life? Knowing you identity changes provides confidence in your destiny!
Paul is “astonished” by a young group of believers- but not in a good way. His response to them gives us one of the most powerful explanations of how we are saved by faith in Jesus.
In the middle of a crisis with their brother, Mary & Martha summon Jesus to come do something about their pain. His response was not what they expected but it was better than they imagined.
The son of God stops for a road-side beggar. The encounter is a display of the amazing mercy of God. You might be inspired to cry out for mercy as well.
Anxiety is normal. Left unchecked it can cripple and ultimately rob you of the joy of kingdom living. Jesus had some words to say about not letting anxiety control our thinking.
Jesus has some serious words on lust. Gouge out eyes?!?! How do we live for Jesus in a highly sexualized world? From Matthew 5 & 1 Corinthians 6.
