Sermons on God (Page 2)
The difference between people with faith and those without is night and day; people of faith live with spiritual clarity about the future and encourage one another in spiritual community.
No follower of Jesus can be healthy in his or her walk with God without a healthy connection to the local church.
Life in Christ brings trials and hardships, but Jesus promises deliverance to those who persevere. All believers should expect hardships, and we must examine ourselves to know whether we are prepared for the path that awaits us.
Jesus’ call for us to witness to His Gospel is the BEST expression of compassion for broken people that we can ever find. But without sound teaching, no disciple will obey Jesus.
The Christian’s entire life rests upon Jesus’ real bodily resurrection from the dead. Our security does not depend upon us, but on Him who promised to keep us. His resurrection guarantees that He is able.
The story of Barabbas and the angry mob demonstrates how quick we are to follow the crowd and discard God. But in Jesus’ cross, we are free from the punishment and condemnation we deserve.
No one squandered spiritual opportunity as terribly as Judas. His life demonstrates that having a credible testimony of faith does not connect us to Jesus. Instead, we must have a broken and contrite heart that calls out to Him in faith and dependence.
