Sermons about Good Works
We will all give an accounting at the final judgment. What “currency” will you be holding? Will it meet God’s requirements? Paul declared that the wrong currency is religious privilege and accomplishment. He issued a strong warning about false teachers in Philippi, because their message of works righteousness was an appealing, but deadly, lie. This is the case not only for the unbeliever seeking to earn God's salvation, but also for the believer seeking to earn God's blessings. The right currency is righteousness that comes from God’s grace. Our boasting is to be in Christ’s gracious work on the Cross. Our service is to be empowered by the gracious work of the Holy Spirit.
When the church is fervently praying for each other and the world, great things happen. People and nations will be changed forever. The power of prayer is ordained by the Lord Jesus Christ. The world WILL be turned upside down when the church prays sincerely and fervently. Jesus tells us that we only have to ask and we will receive. So why doesn't the church turn back to the Lord and ask?
Jesus has called us to be the salt of the earth, to enhance the world. He has has called us to be lights of the world, to enlighten the darkness that exists. He has called on us to enlarge the vision of God to the world. The question simply is: what are we doing about it? Pastor Chris takes a look at how the church has been salt and light in history, and challenges us to continue on even though its hard and tiring.
The purpose of the law of God, how we should react to it, & the wrong conclusion people sometimes make about the law.
Christ is a better Sacrifice, therefore we are responsible to God, ourselves, and our brethren.
The ones who find the narrow gate, better be aware of false prophets. They portray saying and doing the right thing, but they will lead you astray. Jesus is warning us that no church is exempt from them; they will be among us. They will act and talk like us, but are bearing the fruits of the Spirit. Since their heart is not cut (changed) they CANNOT bear Christ's fruits. So look past appearance; look at the heart!
Now that you've got a qualified guy leading the church, then what? How then as Christians ought we to live as to our different vocations or identities? The answer might be expected or traditional, but you could be surprise. Listen all the way through.
God looks beneath the surface to our hearts. We should prioritize intimacy with God as we engage in ministry for god.
