Sermons for help on this journey through life
Jesus The Living Word Part 38 | Serving Within Jesus’ Kingdom | John 13:18-38
Serving is a choice we must make on a daily basis until it becomes a habit forming lifestyle. And when we serve it may not always be easy but a challenge. As we view Jesus in his last supper meal with his disciples we see how he teaches on this important topic but models it in front of a man who would betray him to death and another disciple who would deny him. Powerful insights we can learn from Jesus.
One Another Summer Series Part VIII | Spur Loving Relationships | Hebrews 10:24
There are lots of things that we need to be reminded of, like birthdays, anniversaries and things like that. But sometimes we can forget how to love others or do good towards others. As the USA just got hammered by the recent hurricanes, we have seen the good but we also see the bad as looters are out trying to steal from homes and stores. We need to encourage the family of God to Love and good works – we need the gentle use of a Spur.
One Another Summer Sermon Series Part 6 | Speak and Sing to One Another | Ephesians 4:32,5:19
We can often be fooled by our first impression of someone we meet or while viewing a situation, but if we give ourselves time, we can gain our Father’s perspective of the individual or the setting in which we find ourselves. Today we will look at how we can be moved from our emotions to the right course of action, in kindness or compassion. Then we will see how important it is for the body of Christ to come together in worship – not only does it move God, but it has an incredible affect on each other.
‘One Another’ Summer Sermon Series Part 5 | Encourage and Agree with One Another | 2 Corinthians 13:11
Encouragement – we certainly love receiving it and for some of us it can really motivate us. It can brighten a gloomy or difficult day or make us to aspire to keep doing the job, task or using our talents and gifts for the good of others. Today our summer student intern takes a turn at sharing about encouragement and agreeing with one another, and the message takes a different turn in the end as the congregation takes some time to talk about how to encourage one another in very insightful and practical ways.
Foundations in Discipleship and Church Life Part 5 | Holy Spirit Dependence Part 3
The fruit of the Spirit (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control) is something only God can give. We can’t produce it on our own strength; however when we allow God’s Spirit to fill us we will increase in fruitfulness and grow more and more into the image of Christ. John 15 compares Christ to a vine and his followers as branches on that vine. As vital water and nutrients flow through a vine out to the branches, so we need Christ to breathe his Spirit into us to give us life and power to carry out his will for his church.
Consider Abraham | Genesis 13
Take a few moments to “consider Abraham” as the apostle Paul suggests we do in his letter to the Galatians. Looking at chapter 13 of the Book of Genesis we can learn this: We need not be greedy or anxious; we must not cling to what we can only see. For by faith, everything and every blessing belongs to us, because everything belongs to Christ, and we belong to him.
‘One Another’ Summer Sermon Series Part 4 | Colossians 3:13
Today’s 2 items are ‘Bear One Another’ and ‘Forgive One Another’. If we had the means of seeing what each one of us is carrying in weighty issues we may have a better understanding of how to help and assist one another. Today’s 2 items do just that. One challenges us to look at those around us to see how we can help. The latter one challenges us to keep short accounts on how we relate to those around us. We can easily be hurt, but keeping short accounts is key, and we need the help of the Lord to do so.
‘One Another’ Summer Sermon Series Part 3 | Romans 16:16 | Romans 12:16
Today we will tackle the “Greet One Another with a Holy Kiss” and “Live in Harmony with One Another”. The first dives into the whole concept of welcoming and making one another feel like a valued part of the community. The second topic chases the whole idea of what we can do to make community while keeping it a peaceful and endearing environment for the body to function and grow in.
