Sermons about Forgiveness
How can we give to others when we haven't received from the Holy Spirit? Yet on the flipside how could we NOT give to others when we have received in abundance from holy spirit?
Got dirty laundry? We all pick up "dirt" in our marriage and relationships and need to go to the laundromat and to clean our "dirty laundry". In this sermon, learn how forgiveness cleanses us from the inside out.
Forgiveness: God's Gift of Salvation
We are all guilty, none are righteous, but God in his great love sent his own son Jesus to pay the price we should have paid so that we would turn from our own ways and turn to Him. Through Jesus Christ there is hope of forgiveness and His Spirit.
How does a believer understand and respond to the problem of indwelling sin? Is the Paul struggling with sin in Romans 7 an unbeliever? An almost believer? An immature believer? Or the normal mature believer? What is the relationship of Romans 7 and 8? These are just some of the questions this sermon seeks to answer.
10th sermon in the series, "Kingdom Come".
In this letter to Christian's at churches in Ephesus John, the disciple Jesus loved, John starts with a bold proclamation about the nature of Jesus. He anchors this in the profound theological truth of 1 John 1:5 that God is light and in Him no darkness dwells. This truth is the basis of the bold proclamation but also the basis of the behavior John says that Christian should exhibit.
This sermon was a demonstration sermon in which I was preparing and baking unleavened bread for communion while I was preaching. So, the preaching is not quite as cohesive as it would normally be, and the visuals are obviously lost in the recording. However, the content of the message will still hopefully be edifying. Community is needed to be a healthy church and a healthy Christian. In Ephesians 2, Paul explains how Christ created a new humanity at the Cross. Whereas our differences as Christians would threaten to divide us, the work of Jesus would unite us. One significant purpose of the Cross was to join Christ's followers together in a new humanity. This new humanity, the Body of Christ, functions through the church. In Ephesians 4, Paul explains how we must be in the church to "put on" the new humanity which is lived out as we relate to one another. Thus, a personal, private relationship with God is not enough, since that is not what God created us for. He created and redeemed us to relate to Him together. Perhaps you find that you have become disengaged or that you are otherwise compromising community in the local church. If so, put on the new humanity! The content of this sermon was partly adapted from a message by Dr. Jeff Bingham at Dallas Seminary.
This sermon, the fifth part in a series from Paul's letter to Philemon, talks about the nitty gritty of this book of Philemon: Paul wants this brother in the Lord to glorify God through obedience to Christ. The goal of Paul's letter is not cold-hearted duty, but glad-hearted service to God flowing from a heart that has experienced Christ's love and is filled with a love for God in return.
