Sermons by Wes Gunn (Page 3)
When we get distracted or lose interest, our attention goes elsewhere. That’s normal in everyday life, but dangerous when it comes to our faith. This first installment of our Drift series reminds us to pay attention to our relationship with Jesus.
Love can sometimes manifest itself in gifts. But gifts aren’t sufficient to define love. It’s something bigger and more challenging, which is why you’ll need God to really love other people.
We can listen to, or be given some really bad advice sometimes. In this message you will hear about how it matters who you listen to. Even when ignorance or pride gets in the way we can seek God’s wisdom through His word, or from those in our spiritual community.
Many of us don’t think we have great memories, but there is something powerful about committing God’s word to memory for our transformation. Coming from the Psalms, Pastor Wes provides some practical help to hide scripture away in your heart.
Waiting can be frustrating when it doesn’t meet our expectations. Waiting isn’t “wasted time,” sometimes, God uses it as a tool. When we look at waiting with a spirit of gratitude it changes the way we wait.
Our social media may tell us we have many friends. But everyone can’t have the same access to what’s going on in our lives. Following the example of Jesus, you need 1 or 2 people in your life who are a spiritual friend. In these kinds of friendships God speaks to us and grows us.
The new year is approaching, and with a new year, new changes are sought after for many of us. Similar to a car needing an alignment, we need maintenance, in the form of constant encouragement. Matthew 6:33 helps put perspective on seeking Him and encouraging us to be more like Jesus.
God’s gift of his presence comes to us in Jesus. Jesus’ presence shows us how to relate to God and relate to others. This Christmas, give the gift of your presence.
Relational brokenness can be extra painful at the holidays. Taking a step towards forgiveness could be the most costly gift you give someone this season. From Luke 7.
The Christmas season brings many hopes. But if we aren’t careful, those hopes will be based on circumstances we can’t control. The Christmas story is a reminder that our greatest hope is in a baby born in Bethlehem.
In this conclusion to our study on Exodus, the people of God come together with their resources to build a temple for his glory. And what they give is more than enough.
Exodus is not just a story from long ago. The same God who called Moses calls us into his work. Listen in as Ashley Malloy, a medical missionary to Malawi, shares how God called and provided each step of the way.
