Sermons about Lent
Easter Sunday is the greatest expression of Love God has for us. Perspective and love should serve to open our eyes to His works and our need all around us.
He is risen! That's the message of Easter. We learn from Mary Magdalene as she comes face-to-face with the risen Jesus.
When we walk through Good Friday's events, we most often view them through the lens of tragedy. Paul, however, sees the death of Jesus as a victory.
The will of God, the purposes of God will not be thwarted. It will not be silenced. It will not be blocked. And given this reality, those who would follow Jesus must decide whether they will join the parade of the Kingdom or not. They cannot stop it but they can be left behind. If God gives an individual or congregation or an entire Church something to do and they will not do it, God will simply bypass them. The prayer that we said only a few minutes ago contains not only a wish but a promise. “Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” The will of heaven WILL be done on earth, it cannot be stopped. So, are we—are you—going to join the parade or stand on the sideline?
Sometimes we need to GIVE UP in order to experience all the things that God wants for us. This week we are challenged to give up even the expectations we put on God, our faith, and ourselves.
We continue our "Faces in the Crowd" series, looking at the people who walked with Jesus through the last days of his life, right up to the cross.
Lent is a season of reflection. It is a time for us to do a spiritual “gut check,” to consider whether or not our giver is broken, to reflect upon our relationships with the others and with God. I’ve been leaving you with a challenge each week. This week, here is the challenge for you to consider. Look at your level of gratitude for what God has done through Jesus Christ. This week, examine your gratitude for what God has done not only through Jesus, but through the touch of others.
Like Peter, we are capable of denying Christ anytime we let fear stop us from being faithful to the life He calls us to. We need to give up fear in order to be committed followers of Jesus.
The Israelites have lost their image as God's children. The prophet alerts them to give up their sins of the past and look for a new thing that God is promising them. We look for the new things that God has for us.
