Sermon Description

One of the marks of a healthy church is a vibrant prayer life among its members. In such churches, prayer flows freely between members and over members. Churches missing this foundational aspect of life together in Christ are prudent to consider what James says about the great power that accompanies the prayer of faith.

Sermon Description

Many of us have unanswered prayers: Prayer for the salvation of an unbelieving family member, prayer for a pregnancy, prayer for a wayward child to return to Christ, prayer for a spouse, or prayer for a suitable job. As days, weeks, and years go by, discouragement sets into our hearts because we don't receive a reply from God. The prayers we once offered regularly, we offer less and less. What should we do when our prayers go unanswered?

Sermon Description

The events of chapter 32 are surprising. The people of God had recently witnessed his hand and heard his voice. Moses had gone to receive instructions for a tabernacle in which God would dwell among them. Things look promising, and yet suddenly they're bowing to a golden calf. First Corinthians 10 says this episode took place to serve as an example of what not to desire and what not to do. So what sessions can we learn?

Sermon Description

Listening to the prayer life of a church can be very revealing. What we pray about will tell you what kind of God we worship. Do we speak to him like a village deity? Like he's a tribal god? Or do we treat him as a missional God with a heart set on the nations?

Sermon Description

You'll find verses in today's passage (like the Golden Rule) that look great on a bumper sticker. But if we fail to understand them within the context of the Sermon on the Mount, we miss the grace of God that enables us to live out these instructions.

Sermon Description

As young children love for their fathers to “look at me” as they jump, spin, or cartwheel across the room, so too Christians practice their righteousness to be seen by their Father in heaven and by Him alone.

Sermon Description

This fifth petition in the Lord’s Prayer is the sweetest and the scariest. It’s sweet to pray these words asking for forgiveness. But it’s scary to realize that to pray these words, while harboring an unforgiving spirit, is to essentially ask God not to forgive you.

Sermon Description

After such lofty petitions centered on God’s name, his kingdom, and his will, a sudden request for bread seems a bit out of place. But this is how Jesus teaches us to pray for ourselves. It might seem too simple, but there are many layers to this prayer that deserve consideration.
