Sermons about Hatred
Being identified with Jesus Christ will mean we will have to face the same treatment from people that he did. Living in a culture not used to suffering for Christ brings unique challenges to our faith.

We consider one of the many things that keeps us from following Jesus: not taking sin as seriously as we should. Our sins may seem small to us, but even the smallest sin is an abomination to God. We are encouraged to repent of every sin, remembering how evil and dangerous even the least sin is. Even small sins are infinitely serious; but if we will turn from our sins to Christ, they will be forgiven and we will find mercy.
