Sermons about Trust
The truth of the matter is that people are really nervous and anxious with everything that is going on around us. The economy is still struggling; unemployment is still up; our president and legislators have not solved the fiscal cliff problem yet; and worst of all, our society keeps going downhill spiritually and morally. With all these, it is difficult to be optimistic about 2013. In fact, it seems to be easier to accept that we are heading towards tougher times. On this context, I feel it is appropriate to end this year with a challenge regarding taking the road to faith. You see, the reality is that when we are facing tough times, we only have two options – we either take the road of fear or the road of faith. I hope that at the end of the day we will be convinced that the road of faith is always the best.
Trusting the Lord's Will for Our Lives
As creatures created in God's image we were created for truth by the One Who is Truth. As finite creatures all humans must trust in a standard and source for truth. When we do not trust God and His Word we do not go on without trusting, but rather trust in our faulty and finite reasoning. As the apostle Paul expressed it in Romans 1, our sin is our denial and distortion of the truth that leads us to become people who are deceitful and untrustworthy. Since our sin is never done away with fully in this lifetime, God's people must always be on guard against denials and distortions of truth that lead to deceitful lives. The account of Isaac, Rebekah, Jacob and Esau in Genesis 27, in part, helps us guard against such deceit by revealing to us not only examples of such denials and distortions, but also reminding us that the only living and true God works through them to accomplish his promises.
Mary navigates the pathway of her heart from Anxiety to Acceptance to Adoration.
A message of encouragement to the believer in times of trouble, persecution and trial and a challenge to the unbeliever to trust in Christ
In part 3 of the Building Relationships series and using biblical references from Phelemon, Matthew 5:27 and James 5:12, Pastor Rudy Bropleh explains how relationships affect results because we need to say what we mean and mean what we say during the maintenance phase. We need to take Jesus serious and watch Him work for us. If you lack the art of forgiveness, you cannot have good relationships. There are 4 (building) tools needed in order to maintain positive and effective relationships: 1) Thought; 2) Trust; 3) Tact, and 4) Time. Check it out and stay tuned for part 4.
After reading the first twenty-five chapters of Genesis, chapter twenty-six seems more than a bit familiar. What was present with Abraham is now present with Isaac; God's covenant spans generations and therefore every generation of God's people must deal with the same fundamental realities. It is all seen in our reception of and obedience to God's word, our reluctance to trust God and in those who oppose God. As the promised son of Abraham, the true "child" of the covenant, Isaac's life, among other things, helps us see what the covenant parent ought to be engaged in doing as that parent prepares their child(ren) for these covenant realities.
Pastor Tim Osborn continues our series, "Thin Places" with his talk, titled, "Joseph: Trust". He speaks from Matthew 1:18-25.
