Sermons about Forgiveness
Jesus said, "Follow Me. I will make you fishers of men." But then what? The fish you catch must be cut, gutted and skinned! This is making disciples, who then become fishers of men - Jesus is Lord of it all. 76 minutes.
Father forgive them, for they know not what they do.
We examine the first phrase Jesus uttered and see the implications of forgiveness in the cross.
The fruit of righteous is living in peace, undisturbed rest and a secure home, no matter what (Isaiah 32:17-20). Does that describe your current way of life? It certainly does not describe America’s present circumstance or course. If you disagree, God will soon make it abundantly plain to you because a great disturbance to this entire nation is on its way. There’s no way to produce the fruit of righteousness in our lives and country without first confronting wrongs and then abiding in the fruit of repentance and the fruit of the Holy Spirit. All of these God-glorifying fruit can only be produced through “acknowledging” God (as described in this message). From the Islamic State (ISIS) to churchianity, “religion” is hated by God...because it’s bad for His creation and stops us all from enjoying the undisturbed rest which has been provided in His existing Kingdom. Would you like to reach out and touch ISIS with repentance, starting today? If enough Americans will do as instructed through God’s Word, ISIS and churchianity can be turned back and destroyed beginning immediately. Religion will not save us from the coming storm. 65 minutes.
A Hypocrite! Who, me?’ Final Part – Throwing Rocks or Catching Grace, from John 8:2-11. Throughout this journey we’ve confronted the pharisaical tendencies and hypocritical temptations to which we are prone. We don’t want to be hypocrites. We desire a healthy spiritual life. This story gives us that hope. Jesus loves us, and is in charge of our spirits. He will take charge in this sinful situation and bring salvation. But look at what happens to the Pharisees. By Christ they are changed too! They come ready to throw rocks, instead they catch grace and take those first crucial steps in exercising forgiveness. So if through these last weeks you’ve used our worship as an opportunity to face your emptiness and brokenness, you too are ready to hear the good news given by Jesus first to this woman caught in her sin, ‘Neither do I condemn you. Go and sin no more.’
What does it mean to live a life that is blessed? The world has many ideas, but the life of David and Psalm 32 shows us that a life lived in true confession before God is the means by which the Christian experiences the true state of internal Blessedness.
( Romans 1:16 )
I can think of no other way to introduce last night’s sermon than quoting from this morning’s devotionals that I read. I was so comforted when I discovered their content this morning! “Growing through pain...feels more like dying than growing...A spouse who honors marriage vows will confront a straying partner rather than walk away. So too is God’s way with us. At times He will confront our wrongdoing...” (Our Daily Bread & Quest Study Bible). And, “I have found over the years in a ministry of dealing with other people, and also in dealing with my own flesh, that we don't really like to confront wrongdoing as we should. Most of us like to make excuses, but excuses keep us deceived...” (Starting Your Day Right). Finally, “God is love. His very nature is perfect love...” (Experiencing God, Day by Day). Wow – it’s a trifecta, introducing and affirming the Message, to God’s glory, honor, praise and pleasure! 47 minutes.
