Sermons about Gladness
Preacher: Pastor Tony Simpson. Passage: Philippians 2 vv7-8. Christians are to be examples of Christlikness to one another and therefore encourage one another to grow more like Christ. This fellowhip in the gospel should produce mutual gladness and joy as they hold out the gospel even through the difficulties and the suffering of following the Saviour in a hostile world.
Discussion around the role and purpose of Christians. Expounding on the "Anointing of Gladness" and the responsibility of Christians to shine a light on those they encounter by being positive, loving, and supportive.
God wants a testimony to his goodness, grace and mercy. Peter preaches Jesus Christ to the people who are now open to hear the sermon, he charges the people with murder, attributes the healing of the man to Jesus Christ of Nazareth, encourages the people, softens the situation by calling them brethren, remembers that once he had also denied Jesus Christ , and he exalted the people to become Christians.
God Always Has A Witness. When God wants a witness for soul saving, he knows how to get one. There will never be a time there will not be a witness for the Lord on this Earth. Spiritually we are pitiful without Him. How did Jesus show up in your life? If you are looking for a blessing, go to Jesus.
Pastor Russ unpacks the importance of receiving God's gifts that empower and train us to serve with Gladness.
The joy of the Lord is the joy that Jesus has secured for us, and therefore, we always have reasons to rejoice, no matter the circumstances around us.
The Cross and the empty tomb of Jesus have secured for us access to God, and thus, to the source of all genuine joy.
The "joy of the Lord" flows from God's word and results in a joyful living by faith.
The Apostle Paul experienced what he referred to as a "thorn in the flesh". We don't know what it was, but we do know it was not what he wanted. He besought the Lord three times and received an amazing answer to his prayer: an answer that involved three key words (1) grace (2) glory and (3) gladness. This message describes the relationship each has to the other and what they all have with regard to God's miraculous intervention in our lives.
This sermon makes the case that worship is not something to be observed but instead something in which we should be all out participants. Worship is our response - both personally and collectively - to God for Who He is! and What He has done! expressed in and by the things we say and the way we live.
