Sermons about Backsliding
Pastor Jared addresses the core issue of backsliding as neglecting fellowship with the Savior.
It seems that the common belief that people have is that if they live a good life, and they die, when they get to heaven God weighs their good deeds against their bad deeds and if the good outweighs the bad, then they are safe and God accepts them into heaven. But this passage is very clear. In Him there is no darkness at all. God by his very nature will not allow ANY sin into heaven. And since we are all sinners, where is the hope?
We must not compromise our faith. We cannot serve two masgers, it's all or nothing. A house divided shall fall, it's all or nothing. We cannot be In one minute and out the next, it's all or nothing.
Matthew 5:13-16 (KJV) 13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. 14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. 15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
Pastor Rudy Bropleh uses several biblical references to complete the message of In Service, The largest of these reference comes from Matthew 25:14-40. Key Points: 1) The Backsliding Servant (Luke 9:62); 2) The Maintaining Servant (Matthew 25:14-15; 18; 24-30); 3) The Progressing Servant (Phiippians 3:12-14); and 4) The Outstanding Servant (Matthew 25:16-17; 19-23)
Cynthia Magana explains how we have been living out our faith upside down, but God, through His grace, and freedom has come to turn our backwards living "Right Side Up"
The Bible encourages us to “taste and see that the Lord is good.” Most of us know that. We've tasted him before. The problem is that after we have received his goodness, we too easily return to our own agendas. This puts us in a growthless cycle of running back and forth between God and sin. For many Christians, this has become the norm. However, God has something much better for us. Find out how to receive it. Ps 34:8; 1Sam 21:10-15; Ps 34:1-10; Heb 5:11-6:9; 2Pet 2:20; Jn 15:4-7; Lk 10:38-42
Norman Barr continues the look at the Minor Prophets, He looks at Hosea a prophet to Israel whose wife Gomer was a harlot. Spiritually Israel was in bad shape before God.
When we think of habits, we think of visible habits such as drug or alcohol addiction or compulsive behaviors of some sort. Rarely do we refer to habits of the mind. But being the center of recollection that it is (among other things), could it be that this is where we must focus our attention?
Listen, if anybody asks you whether or not I am committed to God, tell them that I am in a relationship with Him, but it’s NOT that serious. I’m just not that into Him. The truth is, I just like Him a lot. I know that He loves me, but I can’t commit ONLY to Him when there are so many other options . Tune in as Juanita Price shares her message: “I’m Just Not That Into God”.
