Celebrate God’s Grace in Times of Trouble

Celebrate God's Grace in Times of Trouble

The Sermon: 2 Corinthians 12:7-10 7 And lest I should be exalted above measure by the abundance of the revelations, a thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I be exalted above measure. 8 Concerning this thing I pleaded with the Lord three times that it might depart from me. 9 And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong. Celebrate God’s Grace in Times of Trouble 1.  Call on Him for strength 2.  Trust His answer Listen to the sermon:   Eleventh Sunday after Pentecost Read More …

The Good Life in Christ

The Good Life in Christ

The Sermon: 1 Peter 3: 8-14 8 Finally, all of you, live in harmony with one another; be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble. 9 Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult, but with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing. 10 For, “Whoever would love life and see good days must keep his tongue from evil and his lips from deceitful speech. 11 He must turn from evil and do good; he must seek peace and pursue it. 12 For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their prayer, but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.” 13 Who is going to harm you if you are eager to do good? 14 But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. “Do not fear what they fear; do not be frightened.”  [’84 Read More …

Put Yourself in Their Shoes!

Sermon: John 8:2-11 And early in the morning, He (Jesus) went again into the temple and all the people were coming to Him. And having sat down, He was teaching them. And the scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in the act of adultery and stood her in the midst and said to Him, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the very act of adultery. Now in the Law, Moses commanded us to stone such women – what then do you say?” (And this they said testing Him so that they might have something to accuse Him of.) But Jesus, having bent down, wrote with His finger in the dirt. But when they kept asking Him, He stood up and said to them, “Let the sinless one among you be the first to cast a Read More …
