Sermons on Fear & Anxiety
Real faith requires courage. You cannot follow Christ without courage.
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.
God never makes a promise that He fails to fulfill. But without a strong faith, we will miss God’s reward.
God is faithful to fulfill all His promises. He calls us to wait on Him in faith to prove Himself faithful to us.
Sometimes God’s goodness seems missing in life. But we must not mistake the subtlety of His goodness for its absence. In the face of trials and uncertainty, God’s goodness is always certain.
God is faithful and wise in His workings in human history. Do not be dismayed by what you see, but trust Him to fulfill His promises. Human unbelief does not frustrate God’s gracious plans. Know that He is working in the affairs of men to bring Himself glory.
God’s rejection of Israel was never final, nor full. Indeed, God never fully rejects those whom He has promised to faithfully love. A remnant is always present and is much larger than we often perceive.
Faith is a gift from God that connects us to God’s person and to every one of God’s blessings. Without faith we do not have God and without God we have nothing. In this Father’s Day message from Mark 5:21-43, Pastor Ritch teaches how Jesus used the circumstances of one father to grow and shape his faith and dependence upon God.
