Sermons about David
What does it mean in this case to be a person of heart?...A leader with a good heart will help you with your vocation and help you live out your calling. You need to do the same in return. You are called to a mission of personal renewal and witness to transcendent purpose in a world that is becoming increasingly incoherent and insensitive to transcendence. All that is a matter of the heart. It is a matter of your heart as well as your leader’s heart....You need to know that the heart takes time to develop. And you need to know that you have to be a people who themselves want to have heart. So, be good to yourselves. Be a witness to a witless world. Choose what is in the heart.
No one can deny that the world—our country—is in trouble: hostility, hatred, division, deception, immorality, you name it! America seems to be in a current heading toward an uncertain end more than ever! But nothing takes God by surprise, and he’s already laid out the world’s future in advance, most notably in Revelation. And the future will go EXACTLY as He has planned. When His people understand His plan, they can live with spiritual certainty in this uncertain world. Share this message from Dr. David Thomas with your friends and loved ones who are looking for answers!
“I can’t believe I did that.” Or “I can’t be he did that” (or she). Many people feel the weight of guilt and shame over things that they did that they can’t believe. They feel the hopelessness of brokenness in their own lives and relationships. They feel lost and abandoned by God. They wonder if there is any grace for them. Of course, some people never get to this point. They sin without ever realizing how bad it is. They live blindly in much need of grace without even knowing it. The good news of Grace at Work is that there is always more grace. As God has said in his word, “Where sin increases, grace increases much more.” From the work of grace in confronting us in our sin all the way to the work of grace in restoring our soul, grace comes when and where we need it most. It doesn’t always look like we think it should, but it meets us at our greatest point of need and draws us back to God. Today we see grace at work in the life of someone who did something disgusting to most people. He made it worse by adding more sins to it. He paid a heavy price for it. But grace was still at work because of God. This grace from an old story reminds us of a much needed daily lesson—that grace works even in our disgusting sins.
