Sermons about Unbelief
Thomas replied and said to Him, “My Lord and my God.” Thomas wouldn’t use the Lord’s name in vain. Christ received this worship. All of the book of John led up to this confession. What might God be teaching us today? - Talk with people about Christ where they are. - For true belief, Christ has to be revealed. - Unbelief is never commended in the Bible. - Christ is the Object of our faith - we worship Him. - Are we believing all that he says in His Word? - The stakes are high - are you believing in Christ?
Let us breakthrough with Christ; relying on his faithfulness and strengthening ours. What is true belief? Let's look to Christ for this answer.
The scriptures say that the one who doubts should not expect to receive anything in prayer. It would behoove us then to discover how to overcome this prayer killer called doubt.
We Christians have a clear and precise call: "Go and make disciples". Are we doing doing this? Are you made being a disciple and does this spur you to go out and do this same thing at our jobs, in our communities, within our churches? Do we draw near and hear God's call just as Mozes did? Are we as faithful as he was?
We are plagued with disbelief, doubt, disillusionment, dashed hopes, hardness of heart and a dull, even selectively spiritual memory. All the “proof” in the world can be laid out, but unless Jesus lifts the ‘blinders’, you will be unconvinced and unaffected—heartless. The resurrected Jesus changes the heartless into joy-filled followers.
Things don’t always turn out the way we think they should or the way we wanted them to at the time. We have our own idea how the perfect scenario should unfold and how we end up happily ever after.
Do you read and study God's Word (Bible) to learn the truth it holds? Or are you seeing the miraculous signs, but still not believe in Him? Do you believe in Jesus but don't proclaim His name in public out of fear what the world might say and think of you? Do you love praise of man more then praise of God?
What is faith? It is a radical trust and loyalty to God. It can't be know if it is not revealed to you. Faith can't come from self or from the world. It can only come from God, because He made it known. Without faith we can't imagine the things we have faith for. Faith is a response from God revealing Himself to us. It is a divine gift of grace and our response to it.
