Sermons about Mercy
Salvation is granted by grace, mercy, and love. Salvation is received by faith, through belief, and by calling on the name of the Lord.
Co-Pastor Emilio teaches on how we are disobeying God in the easiest things.
Today we conclude the message series, “Winning at Bethany!” At home plate, we become committed to a life of generosity. This is the natural outpouring of a spiritually mature Christian. In Luke 10, Jesus encounters a lawyer who asks, “Who is my neighbor?” Jesus shares the story of three travelers that shows us how to express generosity even in uncomfortable situations.
January 25 each year is "Opposite Day"...that day when we can have breakfast for supper and can enjoy playing at looking at the world differently. The scriptures for today all seem to have "Opposite Day" in mind as well. Micah 6:1-8, 1 Corinthians 1:18-31, and the often repeated "Beatitudes" of Jesus in Matthew 5:1-12 seem to present God's Kingdom as one "Opposite" of how we really live in the world. This sermon challenges us to look at the world around us through the lens of God's Kingdom and "Opposite Day"!
This week Bill sat down and read through some of the most meaningful Old Testament passages to him, demonstrating that God's grace, love, and mercy aren't just New Testament things. God has loved us from the beginning and the entire Bible tells the story of his saving plan.
The night before Dr Martin Luther King, Jr was assassinated in Memphis, he preached his final message on this parable of the Good Samaritan. He noted three responses to human trouble: the robbers live by what’s thine is mine, the priest and Levite pass by the trouble because what’s mine is mine, and only the Samaritan stops because, what’s mine is thine. In terms of neighbor love and racial reconciliation it is only by the Samaritan response that any blessing will come. It’s a dangerous, risky love that doesn’t ask in fear: if I stop for the one in trouble, what will happen to me? But rather, if I don’t stop to help the one in trouble, what will happen to her? Luke 10:25-37
Awe of God reminds us of who God is and redefines who we are.
NO AUDIO TODAY DUE TO TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES. The Baptism of Jesus by John signifies that Jesus takes on human form and is always with us. God's love is with us everyday.
