Sermons about Christian Living
As we anticipate Christ's return, we prepare. We live without hypocrisy, generous in all our ways, knowing the Jesus can cause divisions
We are called as Christians to be in but not of the world. As an idea that sounds good, but how exactly do we do that? Is it about rules and regulations? Is it about where and where not to go? Listen as pastor Lance Parrott opens God's Word and seek to help us learn the balance of being in this world, but not of it.
Ephesians 6:18b-24 Finding meaningful application in the closing remarks of the New Testament letters can be challenging, because the authors typically include some very personal requests (like "bring me my coat when you come" and "don't forget my books"). Some of these requests seem to have little relevance, if any, to us. Yet, they offer us a glimpse into the sort of relationships that God uses to advance the gospel.
Ephesians 6:10-20 The Christian life today is presented by many as a life of ease, a life free of difficulty. Being a Christian appears the tranquil life, with no enemies to speak of. Today, Paul will remind us that the call for Christians is not to have a peaceful, easy life, but rather a call to battle.
Ephesians 6:4 There are so many ways that we as parents (and grandparents) provoke the ones we love: by teasing, ribbing, overprotecting, and callously pointing out their faults; but is there anything more exasperating to a child than hypocrisy? Under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, the Apostle Paul says that moral inconsistency is the antithesis to gospel-centered (and effective) parenting.
Ephesians 6:1-4 Parenting is a humbling enterprise. There's always so much more to learn and so many areas in which to fail. There are hundreds of books written on parenting, and yet the New Testament only offers two direct commands for parents ... leaving us often bewildered. It would be easier if children were more inclined to obey. Maybe they struggle for the same reasons we do: they need better motivation.
Why are Christians so afraid of Change?
Ephesians 5:25-30 In this passage, love is used five times in order to express the husband's overarching duty in his role as the head of his wife. All Christians have the duty to love, having been first loved by Christ, but the husband has a unique responsibility to be an instrument of sacrificial care to his wife. This passage leaves each husband with the question: "How can I love my wife as Christ does, so that she becomes more like Him?"
