Sermons on “Giving”
Why will many Christians go to Hell? Can rich people get in to Heaven? Who is really saved anyhow? These questions are answered in this sermon from Rich Tidwell’s series titled “Words in Red.”View Sermon
When the Disciples realized there were over 5,000 hungry people at one of their meetings, their first reaction was to send them away to fill their own stomachs. Jesus then commanded them to feed the people. The Disciples were perplexed because they only had 5 loaves and 2 fish, Jesus knew this but He gave them the command anyways. He wanted them to begin caring for those in need with what they had, then by faith God would bring the increase. Long story short, all estimated 10,000+ people ate that day with baskets of food left over!
When we see need we’re commanded to meet it. If we can’t feed 10,000 we start feeding one and trust God for the increase! During this sermon we learn more about the miracles that follow our obedience to serve others!View Sermon
Although sin manifests in many forms, all sin shares a common root. Like a disease, the various sins we commit are merely the symptoms of a greater problem; if we treat only the symptoms we’ll never recover from the disease itself. When we look at a story like Sodom and Gomorrah, we often focus in on the various sins the cities committed which lead to their destruction. But these sins were symptomatic of a much greater problem. Like Sodom, we as individuals often try to treat the symptoms of our disease; we try to stop sexual immorality, stop slander, stop theft, stop alcoholism. But what if we are merely treating the symptom? How many times have we cut off a sin in our life only to have a new one spring up in it’s place? Together we discover how to kill sin at the root!View Sermon
Jesus said in the last days that “Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold” in Matthew 24:12. This is a call to action for the believer; to increase in righteous living and set our hearts ablaze with love!View Sermon
In Scripture, Our Father informs us of many observable actions which reveal who the righteous and the unrighteous are. A common theme we witness in scripture is the difference between how the righteous vs the unrighteous treat the poor. This difference will surprise both the seasoned Christian and the new believer!View Sermon
St. Peter said one ought to be “diligent to confirm your calling and election.” The Apostle Paul said one ought to “examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith.” Being willing to “examine” ones actions and “confirm” ones salvation is a monumental step towards spiritual maturity. For if one is found to be lacking in an area, they now have the opportunity to address their weaknesses and overcome them by the help of the Holy Spirit. Together we’ll discover how to “self review” your faith and how to take steps towards spiritual maturity.View Sermon
