Sermons from March 2023
The recipe for the full life of God is made available by the gracious offer of a sacrificial love from Christ. When we receive this love into our hearts, then, and only then, do we have the capacity to love others well. Then and only then, will we be with Him in eternity. And the longer we let ourselves sit now and soak in the incredible love of God, the more it gets into us and changes us to be more Godly and more like Him, and the stronger our relationship with Him becomes.
Each and every day, we are presented with a chance to commit ourselves to the pursuit of Jesus, to get to the goal, to win the race and be with Jesus, to die to our old desires and come alive to a new way of living.
Life is full of distractions, trials, and temptations that can ruin your life. The only way we are able to navigate through all of it is to allow the Spirit of God to fill us, seal us, and empower us to have self-control.
Fear of the Lord is the foundation of true knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction. We receive this knowledge from God in many different ways. First, we have been given instruction and guidance within the scriptures. The Bible is God’s authoritative word to us, and it speaks to every kind of life experience, that we might know how God wants us to live. Second, we receive knowledge through Godly counsel. When we surround ourselves with people who love God and live with wisdom, they too can help us experience the full life of God.
