Sermons about Sickness
God gave us his amazing creation for our use, for us to rule over. We failed to rule over it, instead, we let it rule over us. Now we live in a frustrating and dangerous world, full of death and destruction. We don't see the world in subjection to us, but we do see Jesus, who has overcome the frustration of creation in his life, death and resurrection, and now calls us forward into his renewed creation.
Suffering is part of the Christian's life. It is a part of our union with Christ in the He suffers with the Church and believers when they suffer but also that we suffer with others in that union. Suffering is very much a part of our union with Christ and it extends in both directions.
2 Kings 20:1-5 (KJV) 1 In those days was Hezekiah sick unto death. And the prophet Isaiah the son of Amoz came to him, and said unto him, Thus saith the Lord, Set thine house in order; for thou shalt die, and not live. 2 Then he turned his face to the wall, and prayed unto the Lord, saying, 3 I beseech thee, O Lord, remember now how I have walked before thee in truth and with a perfect heart, and have done that which is good in thy sight. And Hezekiah wept sore. 4 And it came to pass, afore Isaiah was gone out into the middle court, that the word of the Lord came to him, saying, 5 Turn again, and tell Hezekiah the captain of my people, Thus saith the Lord, the God of David thy father, I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy tears: behold, I will heal thee: on the third day thou shalt go up unto the house of the Lord.
Our identity is what we show what we are toward the world. Our identity is being "Christ Followers". How are we distinguished as this? By the two ordinances Jesus Christ gave us. Baptism and the Lord's Supper. The Lord's Supper, administered according to the Gospel, transforms lives.
Prayer opens our hearts tot he work of God
Using the psalm's basic structure, this sermon looks at the complaints of the psalmist, interspersed with his prayers to God.
There is a silent killer in our world daily strangling the life out of its victims. Its weapons consist of depression, anger, eating disorders, stress and sickness. What is this killer? Acts 18 gives us an insight into the life of Paul as he struggles with this issue. Let’s ‘lean in’ to hear a direct word from God to Paul about how it is already beaten!
In this sermon Ps. Steve looks at the cross, how this act of love demonstrates just how amazing Jesus is, it will also reveal how the cross dealt with sin, fear, guilt, depression, anxiety, sickness, disease, death and poverty. We do not need to carry what he already carried at the cross.
Jesus' authority shown in teaching, over demonic spirits, over sickness
Sometimes it is hard to believe that all the stories in the bible are true. But they are. These are true stories that took place in real places. For example, in Capernaum Jesus went to Simon Peter's mother. He reached out and healed her in her time of sickness and suffering. In fact, Jesus spent much of His time on earth healing sickness and suffering. And He really did give His own life so that we could have spiritual healing and eternal life.
