Sermon Take Away: “This Is How It Is”

Ecclesiastes 12:13,14; Matthew 22:37-40 The anointed prophets and teachers in the bible were very direct and clear in their messages to the people, as inspired by the Holy Spirit.  King Solomon, the son of David, was an exceptional communicator with the word of God.  He requested that God give him wisdom to rule his people and it was granted. The book of Ecclesiastes is a writing of inspiration and advice on life.  His teachings on vanity, satisfaction in labor, a time for all things, the end of life, and more are still relevant for today.  As he concludes this book … Continue reading Sermon Take Away: “This Is How It Is”

Sermon Take Away: “Look and Live”

II Chronicles 7:17; Numbers 21:4-10 ; John 12::30-32 Daily news will cause us to feel compassion, concerns and even frustrated for families who are in some very despairing situations.   The acceptance of the mercies of God and his continual love helps to ease those feelings.   He knows about all things that are happening in the lives of families.   “The earth is the Lord’s and fulness; The world, and they that dwell therein.”  If we follow the scriptures, disobedience to God is the primary cause of trouble in the world.  The same life changing message that is written I Chronicles … Continue reading Sermon Take Away: “Look and Live”

Sermon Take Away: “Power in Prayer”

Scripture: Matthew 6:9-13 ; Luke 11:1-4 Prayer is our lifeline to connect to God, who is our source of power. Prayer is a way to place God first. Prayer is the breath of the soul.  It is how we receive spiritual power.  Prayer brings the heart into immediate contact with the Chief Cornerstone of our salvation and strengthens the very core of our life in Christ. The power is God himself. The prayers of Jesus and the disciples were totally different. Jesus disciples requested to be taught to pray as John the Baptist taught his followers. Jesus prayer to the Father … Continue reading Sermon Take Away: “Power in Prayer”

Sermon Take Away: “Love in Focus”

Scripture: I John 3:1; Colossians 3:1 The inspired word of God tells us just how important we are to him. God loved us so that he gave his only begotten son to save us. Love is the principal subject throughout the bible. The very attribute of God is love. His love is real and enduring. When we learn of his glory, righteousness and holiness, we wonder how can he love us. “Behold, what manner of love the father has bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God : therefore the world knoweth us not because it … Continue reading Sermon Take Away: “Love in Focus”

The love of God remains plain and direct that “Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down or lives for the brethren.” God not only gave us his best, he … Continue reading Sermon Take Away: How Far Are You Willing to Go?
