Sermons about Promises
God gives us some great promises to be with us and help us.
From Hebrews' Hall of Faith, we learn many facets of the deep, complex belief with which we're supposed to hold and follow God's gospel.
Any gambler knows the house always wins. That's often bad news for Christians, because whether we like it or not, Satan has significant power and influence in this house (i.e. our world). And although we don't fully understand why this is, the truth is undeniable. If even Jesus felt the pain of the enemy's attacks, how much more so shall we? The only question is how will we respond when the attack comes? Eph 2:1-3; Eph 6:12; 1John 5:19; John 14:30; 1 Peter 5:8; John 16:33; 1John 3:8; Rom 8:17-25; Rev 21

There are problems that we simply cannot hope to fix on our own. These include the national debt, foreign affairs, and the cultural breakdown of the family. On issues of this magnitude, we hold very little influence or power. And yet, there is someone who does. God holds power over all things. We know this. Yet, we often fail to recognize the incredibly important role that prayer plays in influencing God and bringing his power to bear on our world. 2Chron 20:1-7; Gen 32-33; 2Kings 20:1-7; Luke 18:1-6; 1John 5:14-15
"Promises; God's Promises to Us" 1-2-2011 St Peter's United Methodist, Katy, TX. Pastor Scott Rawlings.
Our emotions are dictated by the weight of what we carry. If the only thing Jesus did for us was to for give us of our sins, then we should continuously praise and thank Him for the rest of our lives. Jesus came so we would not get what we deserve. If you have missed God's gift to you then tou have missed the purpose of Christmas.
