Sermons on Jesus
The heavens declare the glory of God. Am I listening? Thoughts from Psalm 19.
Thomas is widely known as “doubting Thomas.” Yet his doubt was only a brief moment in his extraordinary life. How does Jesus and the other disciples respond to him? We need the same treatment in our doubts as well.
A religious leader approaches Jesus with some questions. Jesus’ answers come as a surprise.
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.
Listen as Taylor Hammett, guest pastor from North End Collective, brings a message about being an apprentice of Jesus! Pastor Taylor speaks about how Jesus doesn’t just invite us to believe in Him or applaud Him for what He’s done for us, but to be more like Him in all aspects of our lives! So, who is Jesus calling you to become?
Most of us don’t care much about what the law says until we need it. God knew that his people would need his law for their good. In Exodus 21-23 we discover God’s heart for the vulnerable, his justice for society, and his protection for our hearts.
Depression is like a cave. It is a dark place with no clear road map out and many pitfalls. To experience depression does not mean you aren’t loved, you don’t love God enough, or you aren’t saved. We are invited to bring our pain to Jesus because he knows how it feels and he can relate to us.
Can you imagine what it would have been like to sit and listen to Jesus pray? We don’t have to follow a specific formula to talk with God, but practicing different ways to pray can help us find deeper purpose and connection to Him through our prayer time. When Jesus taught his disciples to pray he gave them a prayer outline called “The Lords Prayer.”
Let’s face it, 2020 has been hard. Many of us have felt beaten down by life and maybe even let sin creep in. The feeling of loneliness and ready to just throw in the towel has taken over our thoughts, but God is with you through the power of the Holy Spirit. You do not need to feel alone because He never left. You have invaluable treasure within you. Guard the treasure within you. Be a good steward of the treasure.
Jesus healed the ten lepers but only one came back to thank him. Would you be the one returning with a grateful heart?
How many times do we push back against the authority of Jesus in our lives? Does His authority translate to obedience?
The way Jesus talked about himself was to compare himself to bread- the very food we need to live. We need to be reminded that it is Jesus- not just his gifts- that we seek.
