How would you react if an Angel of the Lord, not JUST an Angel but one who is allowed to stand in the presence of God,came to with a message? Would you believe or would you question?
Picture yourself as a guest at your own funeral--a little morbid, perhaps, but there's a great point to be made. As you look to transitions in life--a new season, a new year, a new job or a big change--your glance turns forward as you look to what lies ahead. But what if instead we looked at the end of our lives? What would we want to have accomplished, to have said and done, between now and our last day on earth? The apostle Paul had a tremendous gift to look at his life while always keeping the end-goal in mind. It might be said that no one had a more productive life, a more impactful life for Christ, than this man. His example planted seeds that led to an explosion of Christianity worldwide after his death that we still see more than 2,000 years later. In this message, Dr. Merritt encourages us to be like Paul--to put our lives in the rear-view mirror and ponder what we can do today that will help us keep the end in mind. Note: This message was originally preached at the end of December and makes a great New Year's or year end sermon.
When God saves us, He does not leave us to wonder and wander without direction. He enables us to walk with Him through His Spirit. The Holy Spirit lives in us, moves us and goes before us. For the sinner, the Holy Spirit convicts. For the believer, the Spirit communicates. The Spirit guides us--He is the only guide that we need. In this message, Dr. Merritt unpacks the role of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit has come to guide us into the truth about God, the truth about sin, the truth about salvation, the truth about life, the truth about death, the truth about heaven, the truth about hell. In other words, He has come to guide us into the truth that really matters.
Christ wants a relationship with you so he can connect with us. He wants his life to flow into you , just as yours flows into Him.
