Sermons about Hypocrisy
As Jesus is confronted by the Scribes and Pharisees about being defiled, he confronts their own hypocrisy and reveals the true source of defilement - the heart.
The Role of the Holy Spirit
Paul left Titus in Crete to set what remained unfinished in order (1:5). One pressing matter that was unfinished was the appointment of elders. Godly leadership is vital to a properly ordered church. In 1:10-16, Paul explains why Titus’ appointment of qualified leadership and opposition to unqualified leadership in the Cretan churches is so important, namely because there are many false teachers in Crete turning people away from the centrality of the gospel. So, in order to help Titus and the churches recognize and oppose ungodly leadership, Paul gives 12 characteristics of false teachers and 2 action steps to take in order to prevent them from harming the church.
Primary claim: Those who know God walk in the light of obedience to him.
As we anticipate Christ's return, we prepare. We live without hypocrisy, generous in all our ways, knowing the Jesus can cause divisions
Our world needs more truth spoken in love. With relativism on the rise, responsibility plummeting, and transparency serving as a mask to all forms of sin, an honest word goes a long way to reflecting Christ and serving as relational glue. This sermon takes a hard look at lies--how we do it, why we do it, and what lies do--and begs Christians to be honest. We must take off the mask, own our faults, keep our word, and speak in love. Both Jesus and Paul modeled this virtue.
Do you hunger for God's Word or do you like what the world offers? If you listen to God's message spoken by His messenger, do you say to yourself;" I wished so and so was here to hear this, because he/she really needs it". If you do this then you judge others and this is a sin in the eyes of the Lord. The focus needs to be on ourselves while we receive the Word. And we have to take it to our own heart.
Pastor Jared preaches on the reality that hypocrisy will not get us to Heaven nor will it help us survive the trials and storms of life. Religion, dead forms, emotions without lifestyle, good works without heart change, and other things are counterfeit forms of salvation.
