Sermons about Discipline
In this passage the Apostle Paul gives an example of how he is not a stumbling block in the way of his brothers in Christ. He disciplines his body in the area of service, concern and preaching in order to win souls for Christ and finish the race well.
This week weâ€™re focusing on the sobering reality that the church of Jesus is really never more than one generation away from extinction. Of all that we try to pass along to our children, the passionate pursuit of Jesus Christ should be the top of our list... yet so often it doesnâ€™t appear to be our number one priority. How about you? Little eyes are always watching. Do they see in you the Jesus you would want them to see? Key Passage: Deuteronomy 6:7-9

Jacob finally finds a wife...or two. What do we think about Jacob working 14 years for the hand of Rachel? Romantic story, or sad diversion from the plan of God? Do we really reap what we sow? And what about Leah? How does she feel about her plot in life? And how does God feel about her?
Loving in an overwhelming, unquestionable fashion...that's what our kids need! But what does this mean and what does it NOT mean? Let's take a look at this wonderful stewardship we have. Whether you still have kids in the house or not, whether you're a parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, ______ (fill in the blank), we all need to know we're loved!
You will only have real spiritual growth in life by learning the power of focus. To achieve what God wants for you â€“ you must be a person of focus. In 2 Timothy 2 Paul is writing to Timothy in a jail cell and he is telling him how to be a focused, growing disciple. He gives him three illustrations to teach him how to use the power of focus.
The discipline of fasting is not one that has been widely practiced in evangelical circles but is having a bit of a â€œrenewalâ€ in our generation. More and more we hear people and ministries calling us to times of prayer and fasting. What is this practice all about? Why was it so important to the Jewish community and what can we learn from this discipline? In our text this weekend, Jesus simply assumes that we are a people who fast, and challenges us once again to fast for the right reasons and in the right way. Key Passages: Matthew 6:16-18 and Isaiah 58:6
This is the final battle that determines who is king. David's men defeats Absalom and kills him contrary to David's request and command. While Joab may have been disobedient in this action, he is still acting more like a king that David, who is passive. David finally receives the news about the death of Absalom and morns for his son. His morning actually hurts the troops and demoralizes Israel in the process. One will benefit from this narrative when one places it and the sad vistory with the emphasis on David's guilt and solution in grace of God in Christ.
Love God above man. Addictions can be broken if we allow the Holy Spirit of God to change us.
In this passage David is expressing grief in a structured way so that it may be remembered and taught to the people especially his military men. Ecc. 7:2-4 shows also that sadness packs a punch that frivolity cannot muster. It is important to remember one's losses in a way that motivates you to walk with God and into intercessory prayer for others. The greater love you have for God, the greater grief you will experience in the trials and tribulations of God's people. But know that nothing can separate you from the Love of God as a Christian (Rom. 8:35-39).
