Sermons about Life
In a world that is constantly seeking for more, is there anything that can bring true satisfaction to our hearts? The promise of Jesus in John 6:25-40 is radical and significant: “I am the Bread of Life; whoever comes to me will never go hungry.” Jesus offers us something more important than food: contentment though a life-sustaining relationship with God.
In this message we examine how many of us are not living the abundant life that God has promised us, but instead we settle for a mere existence. Don shares some key premises for God’s promises, practical things we can do to live the full life God promised us.
God has emotions, and created us to reflect Him, in image and likeness.... externally and internally... so when it comes to some of those emotions, we need to see them as a gift and use them as He intended. So, what do you do with fear?
Daniel 5 seems like anything but a story of hope. For 67 years Daniel has been in exile. He is persecuted, undervalued, and used. Daniel never stages an uprising, he never returns home, he never gets the girl. His story is far from the Hollywood script for hope. But perhaps this virtue of hope has nothing to do with circumstances and everything to do with perspective. Perhaps what we are longing for isn't a better life, but rather, a new perspective on what to put our hope in. Daniel 5 is about the death of a king who "had it all" yet had nothing. Meanwhile, the "exile" was changing the world.
In John 8:12, Jesus says, I am the light of the world”, right after the story of the woman caught in the act of adultery. Jesus redeems the woman from darkness, and transforms her life. The Good News of the Gospel is that Jesus forgives sin, takes away shame and leads us into the light.
