Sermons about Failure
Having been told to go back to Bethel and engage in the right worship of God, Jacob leads his household in this worship and then journey's on. The second part of Genesis 35, though, mentions three events that reveal the truth that even though Yahweh has promised fulfillment of his covenant with Abraham and his descendants, and even though this fulfillment is in the midst of taking place, nonetheless it takes place in the midst of certain kinds of failures. It is this union of fulfillment and failure that marks the life of God's people now as they journey on toward the final fulfillment in the New Heavens and New Earth. What lessons do we learn from these failures mentioned in this text and their union with God's fulfillment of his promises?
Listen as Pastor Rose walks through the life of Peter to show that Jesus is Greater than our Failure.
It's amazing how badly flawed all 11 of the remaining disciples where. Yet Jesus chooses the biggest failure of them all (apart from Judas Iscariot), Peter, to be responsible for the feeding of his church. Restoration is costly business, but when Jesus is involved, it's always worth it. This message looks at how Jesus does that with all of us and the truth that failure is never final with Him.
GAME PLAN: "4th Quarter" 1 Samuel 16:6-13; Romans 5:8 If I'm full available to God, I'm fully usable by God. Andrew Bonaventura, Lead Pastor
Sermon delivered by Pastor Ginger Medley and supported by biblical references fro 1 John 3:1-3; 1 Samuel 16:6-13; and Exodus 4:10-11. Reference is made to famous people who have failed, but kept trying, trying again for successful lives. Failure is falling down and not trying to get back up; failure is a delay, not a denial. We fall down, but we get up, but only through the Grace of God and our will to keep pressing on, to experience success.
One of the most fundamental principles of driving is to keep your eyes on the road. When we fail to do that, wrecks are surely not far behind. Following God is a lot like that. There are many things that can distract us and make us lose focus in our relationship with him. And, when we succumb to them spiritual wrecks are not far behind. This is why Jesus insisted that the disciples mind their own business and keep their eyes on him. Gen 3:1-6; Josh 7:1-21; 2Sam 11:1-5; Mk 4:1-20; Jn 21:15ff; Mt 25:14ff; Heb 12:1-3
When contemporary Christians consider the Ten Commandments, there is always one that is conspicuously overlooked. We understand “Thou shalt not kill” and “Thou shalt not steal,” but have a hard time understanding the Sabbath. After all, why should it be a sin to work hard. And yet, Sabbath is a concept that seems to be woven not only into scripture, but creation itself. Find out why Sabbath is still important. Ex. 20:1-17; Ex. 16:13-30; Neh 13:15ff.; Gen 1:27-2:3; Ex. 20:8; Lev 25:1-7; Mk 2:23-27; 1Pet 5:8; Jn 15:1-6
