scripture Isaiah 41:1-10
topic Dependence on God
type Sermon
id 1013

Predictions by man in regards to the future may cause increased worrying and tension throughout the world. But what does the Bible say about the future? God has promised to those who believe that He will not forsake them. As a follower of Christ, our assurance that a promised made will be a promise kept is founded on the character of the one who made the promise. God will never change and by standing on God's promise we should not fear nor be dismayed.

Many commit to a New Years resolution of giving up something only to become frustrated when their effort to change is abandoned. As a Christian, has your fire for Jesus become cold? Or are you still hungry for Christ, desiring to be changed by knowing Him personally while experiencing His power and passion? Paul understood that his longing to truly know Jesus meant he had to give up what he could not keep, to keep what he could not lose.

Jesus asked Peter three times “Do you love me?” Today before we can answer the question, we must understand the definition of loving Jesus. Believing in God or being religious does not make one a Christian. So how do we know if we truly love Jesus? Jesus provides a self- examination into our hearts based on personal relationship and obedience to our Saviors commands. Do you love the Lord Jesus?

scripture 1 Corinthians 2:6-16
topic Holy Spirit
type Sermon
id 1018

Jesus told His disciples that after He departed another would come - the Holy Spirit, also known as the Wonderful Counselor. Providing instruction to bow to scripture's authority and not man's, reveals that the Holy Spirit is the sole source in converting the non-believer. Being theologically accurate is of no assistance if the Holy Spirit does not live inside us. By revealing the hidden truths to each of us, the Holy Spirit teaches trust and love in Jesus Christ.

scripture Ruth 1
topics Gospel, Preaching
type Sermon
id 0159

Whether preaching from the Old Testament or an epistle or directly from a Gospel, the Scripture itself should determine the way in which a sermon unfolds. Pointing to the book of Ruth, Alistair explains the importance of immersing oneself in the details of the story; the sights, the sounds and the emotion, and warns against overlooking the pieces that hint at something more. There is, in the narrative of Ruth, a question that presses readers to make a choice about their relationship with God.

scripture Luke 9:18-27
topic Jesus Christ
type Sermon
id 1003

In Luke 9 Jesus asks Peter "Who do you say I am?" This question is still relevant today. Who do you say Jesus is? What does it mean to deny yourself and take up your cross? Many times we want something without giving up anything. Jesus, by His death on the cross paid for us to be reconciled with God. So what are the expectations for us to answer Jesus' call to "follow me?"
