Sermons about Devil
To be a Christian requires different skills than what many of us develop in this modern world. It requires an intentionality to trust; an eagerness to be disciplined ; and a receptive heart to look for the mystery of God among us.
David Jeremiah gives 9 R's for James 4:7-12. Bro. Jeff uses the to give impact and memory to the sermon on Grace.
What do we do with evil? The evil of the world? The evil around us? The evil within us? Let’s admit it right now the devil is real and he is actively working within humanity. And often it seems like evil is attacking our Rootedness. So where does that leave us? Are we hopeless agains the attacks of the devil? Is he winning? Today we take look at what happens to evil when pitted against Jesus. And in observing this battle we learn that in Him we can attack evil.
What comes to mind when you hear the name, Satan (or devil, Lucifer)? Are you afraid? Knowledgeable about who he is and how he works? Do you even believe he is a person? An entity? Or just a force? What power does he really have over believers? Today we continue our message series Rooted by focusing on the victory we can experience in being rooted and living out the rooted life in Christ. May the Holy Spirit guide into these truths today and protect our minds from the Devil's deception and distraction!
Humility is that garment. Even children should learn this. What they learn when young will stay with them. Prov 22:6. 2 Tim 3:14-15 God opposes the proud and gives grace to the humble. The sin of pride is the most diabolical of sins. This sin can be traced to before the creation of man. Isa 14:12-14 Satan's downfall Gen 3:5-6 pride in the downfall of man Clothe yourself (with overalls used by workers). We are to cover our God-given grace with the garment of humility. 1. Problems we encounter with humility Some things we naturally do and other things we labour to do. We have the ability to do the latter but often lack the inclination. This is the way it is with humility. Gal 5:16-18 2. The perfect example of humility 1Peter 2:21 The Lord Jesus. Phil 2:5-8 Who humbly went from the very source of life to the very jaws of death. Humble Saviour who came down to our level to lift us up from the miry clay. 3. The promise that accompanies humility. So that at the proper time He may exalt you. Luke 14:11 Humble yourself and exalt your Saviour and a day is coming when you Will be exalted to His presence.
God through His power has raised Christians from death to life and given us a new purpose.
To You Oh Lord I Lift Up My Soul
