Sermons about Sanctification
The grace of God appeared through Jesus and the salvation He brought with Him during His first advent. This grace of God in salvation has a purpose both now and forever. For, not only does God's grace transform our future, but it is also meant to transform our present. As Christians, this transformation finds expression through our practice, is a product of of our position in Christ, and is one significant focus of our proclamation. So, while you wait, live the life by God's grace without looking back! Don't go back to the life God saved you from. Instead, show up to the classroom of God's grace by spending time in His Word, in prayer, and with His people as you walk with Him. Then, allow God's grace to permeate every area of your life.
The life of a Christian can be likened to going to the moon (think, 'pioneer'). We're sent to overcome the most inhospitable and hostile environment, establishing in that very place of impossibility a movement that can take root and flourish - unto the glory and pleasure of God. Are you ready to overcome all of the hostility in your environment? 72 minutes.
Contentment can be elusive, even when you seem to have all the right stuff and you seem to be doing all the right things. In Philippians 4:10-13, the Apostle Paul seized the learning moment to use the occasion of the Philippians' timely gift to teach them about the secret of contentment. For, Paul had learned the secret of content. As proven repeated through the Scriptures, it has nothing to do with circumstances or possessions. The secret of contentment is Christ in you. For, through Christ's empowering work in the lives of God's people by the Holy Spirit, we are able to respond to every situation in a fruitful and God-honoring way, finding that we have everything we need in Christ to do everything God wants us to do. So, find contentment in Christ in you.
At their point of salvation Christians enter into a journey towards glory. This journey is a process of sanctification whereby which we grow to become more and more like Christ. It is a joint process between the Lord and ourselves. Our souls will be fully sanctified at our death but our bodies will be fully sanctified at the Second Coming of Jesus. Walking in the Spirit, walking in the Word and walking with other believers will carry us toward our goal.
Pastor Vince Larson reminds, in this sermon, us how easily distractions come and why they come... but how looking to God and his plan for us will not only keep us on track, but will point others to him.
In this timely sermon, Guest Speaker Andy Rodgers from Restored Church discusses our need to remember the basics of the Gospel and our hope in Christ.
As Paul seeks to guide the believers at Thessalonica he gives them "marks" or characteristics that should be true of them as Christ followers. These "marks" should be true of us as well as we seek to follow Christ.
