Joshua 14: 10-12 (NIV)
Deuteronomy 6:4-5; Mark 12:29-31
As believers we are beneficiaries of the “hesed” of God; His mercy, steadfast love, loyal love. However, we wrestle with demonstrating “hesed” to other people. The spiritual imperative for Christians is to show the unconditional love of Christ to others especially when we disapprove of their decisions or behavior
1 Peter 2:11-17
A Christians life lived out speaks far louder than words spoken. It is in our acts of kindness. We see it in our expressions of love. It is demonstrated when we extend forgiveness and show mercy. We are the examples of Christ in the world. So, we must think differently. Act differently. Speak differently. We have been given a mission. We have been given a charge. Both require our hands and our feet. We are just passing through because this is not our home.
The whole world has been deceived and is being deceived by the devil. He is leading as many people as he can astray and far from entering into any kind of relationship with God. He will take every opportunity given to him to bring harm and destruction, regardless of who is in his path, for he is filled with wrath and knows that his time is short. But if we look ahead in God's word, we will see that his end is already done.
John 4: 11-13
2 Tim. 3:1-9 & 2 Tim. 1:5- 7
Scripture: Habakkuk 1:1-5
This sermon is a lament. As Christians we must use the voices that God gave us to call out what is wrong! Although we don’t always agree on what is wrong, allowing the Holy Spirit to convict your conscience and speaking what the Holy Spirit gives you to say is a start.
Scripture: John 21:1-14, NIV
We can do the right thing, work hard and still come up short. But at the words of Jesus things change. When we are most at a loss, Jesus shows that we have not lost him, the Christ.
Scripture: Mark 1:9-15 KJV
Christians possess the same spiritual resources that were available to Jesus Christ in the wilderness - Faith, Prayer, the Word of God, and the Holy Spirit. During the wilderness experiences of life, we must resist temptation, restrain fear, and recognize Immanuel is with us.
Scripture: Revelation 3:14-22
We live in a world where powers, principalities, rulers in high places say we have the power, we don’t need facts - we have the power, this is our faith. The Good News is that Jesus said of himself, I am the Amen, I am the faithful witness, the truthful witness and I have the last word.
Scripture: Matthew 2:13-23
When a Christian consents to playing their role in the plan of God, it puts them on a collision course with the enemies of God. This is why so many people shirk the weight and accountability of God’s anointing and they sit down. However, emotional healing requires that we get up, come to ourselves and continue the journey.
