Sermons about Mistakes
Paul is standing before the high council; how will he respond to the pressure? Mistakes are made, angry words are spoken. But despite all of this, God still has a remarkable plan for His servant. Do our mistakes hold us back in life?
Jesus said, “Without me you can do nothing.” But, that's not entirely true. We can certainly screw up apart from him, and usually do. This happens as we allow the stress in our lives to put distance between us and him. At the same time we neglect our relationship with him, we also often neglect ourselves. The result is that we put ourselves in a position to be totally dominated by our flesh. Its a recipe for disaster. Jn 15:1-5; 2Pet 1:3-11; Ro 7:14-25; Gal 5:16-21; Jn 16: 8-14; Ro 8:26; Ep 3:16-21; Lk 22
Your bloopers can be fixed.
We all make mistakes. No one is perfect, but the good news is that you aren't called to live a perfect life, you are called to live a life of excellence.
Three Mountains to deal with: Misunderstanding, Selfishness and Mistakes
Sometimes, like Sarah, we may be tempted with the mother of all bad ideas. God, however, can incorporate even our mistakes and failures into His plan.
In the midst of dysfunction, mistakes, sinfulness, and lack of faith, God is still sovereign, trustworthy, and he always restores us.
Biography: Jephthah Reconnect – June 21, 2009 Text: Judges 11:29-40; Mark 8:36 Key Thought: Jephthah “shows” us that the more we experience God as our Father, the better fathers (and mothers) we will be. At that time the Spirit of the LORD came upon Jephthah, and he went throughout the land of Gilead and Manasseh, including Mizpah in Gilead, and led an army against the Ammonites. And Jephthah made a vow to the LORD. He said, “If you give me victory over the Ammonites, I will give to the LORD the first thing coming out of my house to greet me when I return in triumph. I will sacrifice it as a burnt offering.” So Jephthah led his army against the Ammonites, and the LORD gave him victory. He thoroughly defeated the Ammonites from Aroer to an area near Minnith – twenty towns – and as far away as Abel-keramim. Thus Israel subdued the Ammonites. When Jephthah returned home to Mizpah, his daughter – his only child – ran out to meet him, playing on a tambourine and dancing for joy. When he saw her, he tore his clothes in anguish. “My daughter!” he cried out. “My heart is breaking! What a tragedy that you came out to greet me. For I have made a vow to the LORD and cannot take it back.” And she said, “Father, you have made a promise to the LORD. You must do to me what you have promised, for the LORD has given you a great victory over your enemies, the Ammonites. But first let me go up and roam in the hills and weep with my friends for two months, because I will die a virgin.” “You may go,” Jephthah said. And he let her go away for two months. She and her friends went into the hills and wept because she would never have children. When she returned home, her father kept his vow, and she died a virgin. So it has become a custom in Israel for young Israelite women to go away for four days each year to lament the fate of Jephthah’s daughter. (Judges 11:29-40, NLT)
