Sermons about Instruction
There are times in our lives when we know we need to make a change. The problem is figuring our how to go about it. This world we live in tells us how - in many and varied ways, but when the time comes to make some needed change, be sure to listen to God's instruction, not the world's.
Paul's Prayers regularly ask the Father for Instruction for us. But, we must be willing to be teachable!
May this psalmist’s prayer be our prayer. May we too cry, “God, teach me!” Let us pray for spiritual instruction from the Master Teacher in the master subject to gain spiritual insight, spiritual guidance, to have spiritual hearts and eyes that God would revive us to live a more righteous life.
What are the proper motivations for godly parenting?
In this sermon we look at God's discipline and instruction in our lives and the result in parenting.
God chose to set his love, his covenant mercies upon a particular people. From the very beginning of the demonstration of his mercies given to Adam and Eve, God promised that there would come one from the seed of Eve who would crush the serpent's head. The continuous fulfillment of this promise is highlighted in Noah and Abraham. This is the only hope for the people of the whole earth--God's covenant people through whom God brings righteousness and justice. In Genesis 18:16-21 God announces the purpose he had in choosing Abraham. In particular, it has to do with what Abraham and his descendants are to be doing. By addressing a question to the angels that have accompanied him in his visit to Abraham, the Lord is calling upon Abraham to participate with him in the Lord's establishment of righteousness and justice on the earth. This will mean two basic things for Abraham and his descendants: Instruction in God's word and Intercession in God's world. We too must answer the question: Are we concerned with what concerns God--the establishment of righteousness and justice on the whole earth?
Jesus’ true family are His disciples -- those who sit at His feet and do the will of God.
