Sermons on Faith
“Night” in the Gospel of John signals the condition of those who want to believe but have difficulty believing. Jesus said that “whoever believes in him may have eternal life.” Being born again does not depend on our faltering faith but on the grace of God so that we are born from above. It is a gift that we have to receive.
God allows his creatures freedom to chose His way or ours. In how he faces his temptations in the wilderness, Jesus does not use his power to do what human nature would want, but sets an example of faith and trust in God. Our temptations should not be seen as an obstacle, but a means to strengthen our faith to choose life and not death.
What makes a great church? Reach out to those around us that are alone and desperate to find what we have found in Jesus. We may not have all the answers, but we do have some of the cure. We rely on the gifts and graces of Christ available to us through the Spirit.
Lesson from Amos: We are not to let our pride keep us from ministry to those around us.
Faith brings power, purpose and promise
God calls all of us
Are you counting on your good deeds to get you to heaven? You must depend on Jesus.
The Believer must be aware. We are to contend earnestly for the faith.
The Task at hand is to stand up for faith and truth. You are called, loved and kept by God.
