Sermons about Forgiveness
The High Priestly Prayer in the Gospel of John opens for us the way of a disciplined and Holy life. It gives us the tools for forgiveness of God, self, and others. It can show us the beginnings of a life with shame.
Forgiveness is an example to follow, not a rule . . . and it is not bound by any frequency or severity of the offense. It is only bound by the intensity of the moment of my own forgiveness!
When many people hear the word “Christian” the first thing they think is “judgmental”. Let’s be honest: We often live up to that reputation. Yet Jesus wasn’t like this. In John 8 he meets a woman the religious leaders want him to judge. But he refuses. Instead He shows amazing grace and forgiveness. We are called to do the same; He calls us to put our stones down.
Being "saved" is great! One can not praise God from the grave and part of the reason He saves is so that we may enjoy the privilege of praising Him. We have so much power through our salvation that our praise to God can even create praise to God upon the lips of others! 47 minutes.
There are few things more perverted in religion then prayer. Look how the Pharisees elevated themselves over the common man. They even thanked God that they were not like others. They wanted men to see how "holy" they were. Do you have that same motivation? Do you pray for the sake of religion or do you pray to seek God. To plea with God. Look into your heart and ask yourself why you pray.
Yes, we're saved by grace alone. But what we do (our actions) demonstrate if we have received God's saving favor ("dew") or not, proving our faith either genuine and fruitful or counterfeit and fruitless. This message will help you to avoid sliding into a works-based salvation and it will also help you to flow with God's desire to see you enjoy a divine Eden of your own. 53 minutes.
Elaine and her husband Jeff shared concerning their recent trip to visit family to Cuba. They shared about the church in Cuba; its struggles and victories. Elaine also shared a little of her message to the Cuban congregations that is also very applicable to us here in Canada. Forgiveness is not an option - it is the key to living in Christian victory and walking with Jesus.
Do you struggle with your eternal security? Are you losing out on enjoyment of life because of it? We are talking today about how we can be secure in Christ.
