Sermons about Denial
Denying Jesus is a real possibility for His followers, whether in the heat of the moment or by our silence. If even Peter would deny Jesus three times, how can we honestly think it could never happen to us? So, is there any way to prevent us from denying Jesus? Biblically, the best defense against denying Jesus is knowing Him. We must know the life-transforming power of the gospel. We must know Jesus; not just intellectually, but personally and experientially as we walk with Him. So, take a stand for Jesus. Get to know Him better. Stop being silent. When the heat is on, be unashamed. Never underestimate the need for prayer.
How Jesus teach his disciples to love in the face of treachery and hostility
The greatest miracle of all, after the resurrection of Jesus Christ, is a changed life. No matter what odds are against you, they are not too great for what Jesus can do for you. Jesus has total dominion over all things that try to come against you, regardless of what the odds are. Instead of medicating the pain through self-destructive behavior, you can expect God to do miracles in your life by: hearing and doing the Word of God, getting out of denial and admitting you have a problem, running to Jesus instead of running away from Him, and sitting at His feet and resting in all He has already done for you. Become a true worshiper of Jesus by sitting at His feet, following Him by getting plugged in to His Church body, and taking back to your world all the good He has already accomplished for you!
Surprised to discover that doors occupy a place of prominence in the Bible? They link to the ark, the Passover, the tabernacle, the walls of Jerusalem, private prayer, and even ministry opportunities. So it should not surprise us that they also find a place on Resurrection Sunday.
Grace - it is more than just amazing! When someone comes to faith in Christ and then has some sort of failure or blowout in life, our ability to dispense grace is tested. Our impulse tends to say “Enough! Not a chance!” Yet Christ was able to look beyond the set back and dispense grace freely to Matthew, Zacchaeus, the woman at the well, Mary Magdalene… As we move through this season of the year another person stands out as one that started well but failed repeatedly - Peter. Join Pastor Kevin Fetterhoff as he travels the path of Peter, showing us where he swerved off the road and how he was brought back to a new beginning.
Peter shows us that the grace of Jesus makes all of our denials and betrayals forgivable.
