Sermons about Light
Part 4. Passing through the first curtain we enter the first room of the tent, the Holy Place. It serves as a place between places, and it is lit by one solitary light. God gives us His light, the one true Light. When we refuse it we stay in darkness. When we have real relationship with God we learn that our responsibility to the light is so simple.
We stay awake at night worrying if things will ever change. We have stresses and troubles that keep piling up. And, if we are honest, we are scared to death. Is there hope for us when worry overtakes us? In Psalm 27 David shows us that there is one, and only one, way out of worry and fear.
This sermon looks at one of the attributes of God - His Goodness
What does drunkenness communicate about a person's character and why should pastors as well as Christians not be "drunkards"?
The ninth plague can initially seem a bit anticlimactic. The previous eight calamities have been nasty, foul, loathsome, repulsive, disgusting, nauseating, painful, distressing, dreadful, shocking, and even deathly. Yet this plague brings only darkness. Seriously? That’s all you got!
Everyone knows the familiar passage John 3:16. But in the context of the rest of conversation with Nicodemus, Jesus reveals the ONE THING that everyone both inside and outside the church walls should know. "You must be born again."
Did you know that the word in the New Testament that we translate “church” is made up of two Greek words? The first word is “ek” meaning “out” (like in our word “exit, or exodus”). The second word is “kaleo” meaning “call.” When combined, they mean “called out.” As the group of believers, we are the “called-out-ones.” We are called out of a fallen world, from our old fallen selves and we are called unto Christ. But we are not only called out to grow and become like Christ, but we are also “sent back” into the fallen world as the Lord’s ambassadors to be part of the Lord’s redemptive plan in the lives of other lost people. The Lord did not intend for us to “just get saved” but to purposely grow in Him and to take on His heart of redemption of the world. As you read through the following verses, note how both the “growth and the sending” are each stressed. We cannot be progressing in our relationship with Christ if both are not happening in our lives. Think carefully where the Lord might be prompting on one or both of these areas. Don’t remain idle.
