Sermons about Reality
The battles for our mind are many. It would be nice if they were few and far between...but that is not reality. Resurrection is reality, and that means everything has been impacted - even one's identity if they follow God. An interesting thing about getting our identity figured out...it helps us with a more healthy perspective concerning the "put on" and "put off" imagery in the Bible.
The reality of the church is that it is.... A people called to God who is giver of grace: v.1-3 A people given grace that enriches and sustains: v.4-8 A people who are dang fortunate that their God is faithful: v.9
Why do we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus on Easter Sunday? What's the big deal? Isn't it enough that we study His teachings? Find out why His teachings were not enough....
This week Ronnie asks us to consider a lane shift. Basing his message on Matthew 7:13-14 he reminds us that we all have choices. We can grow past our past by receiving grace and pursuing character. But we must evaluate, plan and act on those choices wisely and turn to God.
Learn to embrace your reality and allow God to use it to birth greatness out of you.
This month we have considered the Christmas story as told by the authors of Matthew, Mark, and Luke. Today, we complete our study by considering John’s account. Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John all give us a little bit different version. This is not contradictory, understand, but complementary. We have learned something different from each one. I trust that today will be no different.
This month we are considering the Christmas story as told by the authors of the four Gospels. Last week, we looked at Matthew’s account; today we consider Mark’s account. Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John all give us a little bit different version. This is not contradictory, understand, but complementary. Some like Luke, give us a lot of detail; others, like Mark, do not give us much. Actually, if it is the traditional Christmas story that you are looking for with Joseph, Mary, the baby, a stable, shepherds, you will not find it in Mark. But, when we really understand what the Christmas story is all about—the incarnation of Jesus—the coming of Jesus into our world and the implications of such—you will certainly discover that story here.
Our time on earth is short and we do not know what tomorrow will bring.
