Sermons about Need
The church grows through the proclamation "Jesus saves!" But this is not only evangelism. It is the truth that we are perpetually needy and the Gospel is perpetually sufficient for our neediness.
The gospel is the greatest need of every people group because they are lost, because people are trying and failing to establish their own righteousness, and because there is no other way to be reconciled to God. Preaching the gospel is the Christian's greatest responsibility because we were commissioned to the task by Jesus Himself, because whoever calls on the Lord Jesus will be saved, and because those who don't hear will be damned forever.
Plumb's latest album has been much anticipated and it's finally here! The #1 hit song, "Need You Now," is also the title of the album and has quite a story behind it. Listen here to find out more.
In John 13:36-38 we see that we are just like Peter in falsely self-assessing ourselves. We make commitments to do things for God that we just cannot do. The problem is not that we are weak, its that we think we are strong.
We are in a series called “I Need a Miracle.” Our definition for a miracle is “those things that can only be described by the phrase, ‘God did it.’” There are seven such miracles in the Gospel of John that are intentionally used by the Spirit of God through this Gospel writer to prove that Jesus is who He said He was. So far we have considered the miracle at the wedding at Cana, the healing of the royal official’s son, the man at the Pool of Bethesda, and the miracle of the feeding of the multitude. There are two more after today. We have been looking at each of these miracles as a way to ask God about our own need for Him to do something in our lives that we are desperate to see. Today, we come to the fifth miracle in this sequence—the miracle of Jesus walking on the water. It is immediately following the feeding of the multitude.
Life of re:sponsive January 20, 2013 Text: II Corinthians 1:3-11; Philippians 4:19-20 Key Thought: Christ invites us into a life of responsive: helping others, with Him, as He continues to help us. He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us. II Cor. 1:4, NLT
We are in a series of messages on the Power of Story—not just any story, but the story of God’s activity in our lives. We are examining New Testament stories of individuals sharing their story. We want to specifically see what God would teach us from these stories about sharing our own story. So far, we have considered the story of Nicodemus coming to Jesus at night, the example of John the Baptist, the example of the very first disciples of Jesus, the woman at the well, and last week the healing of a blind man. I’ve been telling you that you need to tell your story and others need to hear your story. Today, I want to talk to you about telling your story to perhaps the most difficult group—those closest to you—your family, your neighbors, those who know you best.
Paul had been going to churches that he had previously visited, but in this passage, the Spirit redirects Paul to Macedonia to preach the Gospel. The Gospel is not only for certain people, but for all people, and it is the greatest need of all people.
