Sermons about Sanctification
Why do we sin? Can we help it or we simply the victim of greater forces at work against us? In Luke 22, we encounter Judas and the Jewish leaders seeking to kill Jesus. They were motivated by, among other things, selfish desires for power and money. While Satan certainly influenced these events, Judas and the Jewish leaders acted decisively. In doing so, they illustrated the timeless truth that sin is an act of willful rebellion against God. While Satan may influence us, and he is a formidable foe, he is limited. Ultimately, we choose to sin. So, stop making excuses about your sin. While those excuses may possess significant influence over us, they can all be overcome by the grace of God and the power of the risen Christ. So, instead of making excuses, walk by means of the Spirit. Flee temptation. Say, "No," by God's grace. And when you sin, come clean.
Sermon #39 from "The Gospel Shaped Life" series. Scripture from Romans 13:11-14.
Turning the other cheek does NOT mean bowing down to ungodliness, wickedness, & evil men.
(1 Cor 10:12,13) Satan loves to blindside us with the unexpected, but we don't need to be buried by the temptations of life. The dangers of temptations.
How is the love of God perfected in us? We take an in-depth look at the Apostle John's explanation of the Sanctification process and how a Christian is supposed to deal with the flesh nature and sin after they've been saved. "I've been saved, but I still have problems, why is that?" The difference between observing His commandments and abiding in His Word. The harmony of the Scriptures (1 Peter, Psalm 119). What is the evidence of salvation? None of us can see the hearts of others (only God can), and are not to go about judging one another, but what are some warning signs John gives us about false teachers and false converts?
Do you believe in the power of God to work beyond your imagination? Are you willing to allow God to display His power through you? God's incomprehensible power is accessed through the prayers of faith in Christ and is aimed at changing us for His glory. God's power should move us to desperate prayer and joyful service all for His glory.
