Sermons about Discipline
As part of our "7 Words: What Christ Desires from His Church" series, Chris Carr teaches Discipline from Revelation 2:12-17
Discipleship is our ongoing commitments as followers of Jesus
In answer to the question, “Is God angry with believers when they sin?”, we answer yes and no. Yes, God is angry in a Fatherly manner. As a loving Father, He will discipline those whom He loves (Heb. 12:5-6). On the other hand, we have learned that the answer is no. God will never again bring down His vindictive wrath upon His adopted children because Christ has forever exhausted His wrath on their behalf (1 Jn. 4:10). God never punishes His children in the sense of avenging justice. But, He most certainly disciplines us for our good as a father does his child so that we may share His holiness (Heb. 12:10).
God is serious about the purity of his Church and us as individuals.
The essentials of godly parenting have been sadly lost in our post-modern society. Even in the church, parenting has largely been relegated to discipline for bad behavior but very little training in times of non-conflict. In this teaching, pastor Andy endeavors to teach parents how to pass on a godly heritage by focusing on the essentials of training children in the way they should go.
Learn how God sets the gold standard for the church in Laodicea and how it is still the gold standard for us today.
We are going to hear his plan for doing all the right things with the right motivation, and then we’ll hear his promise of what happens when we get both action and motivation heading in the same direction.
