Sermons about Blessings
It's been said that if you have a problem that can be solved by writing a check, then you really don't have a problem. There is some truth in this. There are some problems that money can never take away. If we don't have any of these we should be thankful. The problem is, we usually aren't. Why is that? It has to do with our tendency to become overly focused on our problems to the exclusion of seeing the world objectively. Luke 10:38ff; 2Cor 12:7ff; Php 3:4-9; 2 Cor 12; 2 Cor 11:22ff; 1Cor 13
How To Recognize Truth, Because It's Right In Front Of You.
Revival is more than just paying some guy to lead 7 services at your church then leave.
In the third week of our study through the book "Crazy Love" by Francis Chan we will wrestle with the question: "Are you in love with God, or just His stuff?" Do you love this God who is everything or do you just love everything He gives you?
People have been deceived by riches since probably the dawn of mankind. Even though we now have the ability through TV and internet to watch how the rich and famous often destroy their lives, and how their wealth and fame didn't make them happy, still people are deceived into thinking that money will solve all their problems. Even so, God is not against people having money, but He IS against money being a god. Our heavenly Father even has set forth many wealth-accumulating principles in His Word, but the first and most important principle is to not be in love with money. This teaching focuses on the dangers of greed and how to overcome it through generosity, and how God wants to bless His people through their generosity.
Joy comes from unity built upon attitude. Unity demands finding common ground together. Don’t make life all about you!
God's people need to take hold of His blessings, grace, and mercy every day because God always gives us something new on a daily basis.
In this opening sermon of a study of 1 Peter, Pastor Paul helps us understand God's Word like a love letter to His chosen people. God has blessed us with salvation in Christ; He is preparing for heaven; but, He's also walking with us when we suffer.
As human beings, we are easily distracted. We often find it difficult to keep our priorities right and maintain our fruitfulness for God. This is no accident as Satan stands ever ready to blow us off course. However if we allow him to succeed, we can lose our peace and joy, and wind up in some very destructive situations. There is a way to stay on track, however. We need to understand the nature of God's invitation and respond to it daily. Lk 14:16-24; Col 4:14; Phil 1:24; 1Pet 5:8; Mt 4:1ff; Ac 24:24ff; Lk 18:18ff; John 10:10; 2Pet 2:20; Heb 3:7-12
