Sermons about Strength
We continue to look at Paul's journey as the Gospel is moved outward. Paul's strength, as well as our strength, comes from the Lord.
Where does our strength really come from? And if we can do all things through Christ, then why do we complain so much?
Jacob left home under the threat of death from his brother Esau in order to seek a wife from his father's family. Jacob is in a difficult place and yet God is with him revealing his word to him and assuring him that the promises made to his grandfather, Abraham and his father, Isaac will be fulfilled through him. It is God giving Jacob strength for a difficult journey. We know that we have the same strength of God's powerful presence when we receive God's word and respond as Jacob responded with the right worship of God.
The last of aspect of the “shemah” is to love God with all our “strength”. This message looks intently at how we can express love for God with our strength, in addition to our heart, soul, and mind.
We all have ritual and tradition at Christmas. Are they healthy for us, and bring us before God or do they exist for us alone?
What does it tangibly/practically look like to be “All In” with God, loving Him with every once of my being, 100% of the time that He has given me to live on this earth?
Jesus rejects and rebukes Satan one last time by announcing the preeminent command to worship and serve God only and by actualizing it in the midst of announcing it. Jesus shows us that we worship and serve God only by resisting Satan's false promise and faulty method for life, by recognizing our duty to God, and by recognizing our strength is from God.
Our stebacks are just God's setups for blessings. Just hold on to your faith; hold on just a little while longer. God is about to open up the floodgates of Heaven and it is about to rain on God's people.
