Sermons about John 17
Sunday sermon by special guest: Gary Jacques - March 10, 2013 - http://MountainRock.org/The-Power-of-Love
Does God answer prayer? Yes. Do some prayers get a no from God? Yes. Do some prayer remain unanswered (and looking like a "no") because there are things we must do? Yes. Jesus prayed for the unity of God's people so that the world will believe that God sent Jesus. If one looks around the world there is a lot of non-belief in relation to this. I find it hard to believe Jesus prayed something He knew would receive a "no" from God. Therefore there must be something we need to do in order for this prayer to be a continuous "yes". In the words of Travis Hurley, this prayer is a "continuous possibility". New Life Christian Church was blessed by having Travis Hurley, from Ozark Christian College, share with us from God's Word this past Sunday. Travis helped pastor a multi-ethnic church in the Washington DC area (before taking a position with Ozark) and has a passion for seeing the reality of heavenly worship (e.g., the diversity of Rev7:9) take place here on this earth. There is a vital element to this being a reality; John 17:20-23 shows us what that is. Be blessed by the preaching of God's Word. Travis Hurley is the Associate Director of Development at Ozark Christian College in Joplin, MO. New Life is a regular financial supporter of OCC. This is a link to the poem by David Bowden, which was read by Travis on Sunday morning. http://www.davidbowdenpoetry.com/poem/diversitys-symphony
In this series, we will see how we can be actively growing in holiness, but not in a step-by-step format. Rather, as we are chasing after God, there are things that should be marking our relationship with Christ, and the importance of the Word of God must come first. This sermon teaches us the importance of scripture, and the link between the Written Word and the Word made Flesh.
The Day of Pentecost Part 5 - Relationship
What do you do when God doesn't answer your prayers?
Models are an important part of life. For some people they are enjoyable - like a hobby (e.g., model cars), for others they could be, unknowingly, detrimental (e.g., a bad role model). Many people are the benefactor of one type of model or another (e.g., plans for a house or automobile). What about when it comes to praying? Are models important when it comes to our relationship with God?
This week Pastor Morris Dirks continues our spring series, "Light: Discovering Jesus in the Gospel of John". Morris will read from John 17:6-26 as he gives his talk, "Jesus, Pray for Me."
