Sermons about Pillars
Priesthood may not be the first thing that comes to mind when listing pillars of our faith, but it is foundational. Key to our relationship with God is the truth that we have complete and total access to Him through Jesus.
1 John 4 says love is from God. In fact, God is love. But we must also see that in John 13 we are given a new commandment: to love others just as we have been loved by God.
Mercy is truly an expression of God's love. It is the compassionate disposition of God that even when we linger in our sin, he acts on our behalf. It is the ever-present characteristic of God that won't allow his patience for his children to run out. And fortunately it is not just an emotion, but results in merciful action.
Scripture commands us to walk in joy. Philippians 4:4 says, "Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice." We must know that joy dwells where God dwells, so a life lived in God’s presence will produce exuberant worship.
In the Old Testament the word for peace is Shalom - it means 'completeness.' If you have Shalom, you are complete. God created you and I to live in harmony with one another and with him.
As we begin a new series on the foundational pillars of the Christian faith, we start with hope. And hope is the confident expecation and joy of eternal salvation provided by the finished work of Jesus Christ.
