Sermons about Behavior
Purity of heart is hollow when it is absent from its context. Without the Gospel as a point of reference, there is simply no reason to seek purity.
Most of us would scoff at the idea that we were false teachers. Maybe we're not teachers at all. Yet, Peter focuses more on the lives of the false teachers than on their doctrine. We must take a look in the mirror. Are we LIVING like a false teacher? Are we influencing others away from Christ?
"Crazy" co-workers are not irritating, your non-favorite or ones that have had a bad day. They are the ones that are mean-spirited and intentionally make you feel small. So how do you deal with them? Ronnie addresses this dilemma in this sermon. Sometimes rebuke, sometimes avoid and sometimes endure.
As aliens and strangers we should be living differently. This should be obvious to the world around us. In what ways are we to be free to live and serve this world?
In Luke 2:52, the Bible tells us that Jesus grew in wisdom. In this sermon, Pastor Gary helps us discover how to grow in stature and in our behaving.
So much of parenting methods focus on behavior modification instead of heart transformation. The Bible makes it clear that the heart is producing the behavior we see in our kids. So, how do you do it? How do you address the heart of your child and get to the root issues in their life? In this sermon we'll look at secret #2 and focusing on your child's heart. This is the reality; if you miss your child's heart you'll have missed your child. If you get to their heart, you'll get their behavior thrown in.
As human beings, we like to see people get what's coming to them—and, the sooner the better. The law recognizes this human drive for justice, but it also knows how easily it can become corrupted. An eye for an eye becomes two eyes for an eye, or even worse. This is why the state does not entrust judgment to individuals. Nor does God. He reserves that right for himself. Love belongs to us. Judgment belongs to God. Mat 7:1-5; Rom 1:18-2:6; 1Cor 4:1-5; Jas 4:11-12; Mat 18:15-17; 1Cor 5:9-13; Jn 13:35; 1Cor 13; Jn 8
Many Christians are living lives that might best be described as insane. They are repeating the same behavior patterns over and over again. A significant reason for this is our distorted view of the place of the Word of God in the Christian life. It is seen as a nice add-on option for “super Christians,” but not really essential for “regular folks.” Until this view changes, we will continue to be stuck in insanity. Find out why. 1Jn 1:8-9; Jas 1:13-15; 2Pet 1:3-4; Jas 1:22-25; Jas 1:20; Eph 4:26-27; Ro 12:19; Jas 1:25
