Sermons on Love

“If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in them and they in God. And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.” 1 John 4:15-16.

Let us remember that love is not a feeling, but an action. 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 states “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”

Reaching People For Christ

Matthew 5:13-14 “13 You are the salt of the earth……  14 You are the light of the world..…  “ What you say and do can  affect your circle of influence. Like a pebble thrown into a pond, the ripple effects spread out all around. Your words, your actions are like the ripple effects. If you have received God’s amazing grace, you would want to share this to everyone, as much as you can.   .  

Generous Great “GIVING”

This is what “generous giving” really means :     “John 3:16 ” For God So Loved … that He GAVE  His Only begotten Son…” As the saying goes you cannot love with giving.   11You will be enriched in every way to be generous on every occasion, and your giving through us will produce thanksgiving to God. 12For this ministry of service is not only supplying the needs of the saints, but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanksgiving to God.… (2 Cor. 9:11-12) Romans 12:8 if it is encouraging, let…

Earnest Sowing ensures Fruitful Harvest

Victor Hugo wrote ” One can give without loving, but never can one love without giving.” God is our example – “For God so loved … that HE GAVE …   Malachi 3:10 Bring you all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house, and test me now in this, says the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not…

God, Sex, and Marriage: Two Sexes: God’s Design. God’s Gift

In this new series, we tackle the controversial topic of what exactly the Bible says about God, Sex, and Marriage. In this opening message, we learn that it is a complex subject, but the important thing is to keep God as the foundation for how we determine our attitudes towards sex and marriage. We examine Genesis to learn that God is the designer and creator of sex and that He made two sexes. However, we live in a disordered world…

2018 is Going to be Great: Obedience Leads to Intimacy

New Year’s Resolutions may be hard to keep, but pleasing God is one goal that we can all do. Romans 5:8 tells us that we please the Lord simply by being His children, and 1 John 5:1-3 says that we obey God because He is our loving Father. But what does obedience do for us? John 14:15-24 tells us that obedience enriches our relationship with the Lord because obedience leads to intimacy. It is an intentional and natural result of…

2018 is Going to be Great: Why We Obey God

New Year’s Resolutions may be hard to keep, but pleasing God is one goal that we can all do. Romans 5:8 tells us that we please the Lord simply by being His children, so if we already please God, why should we obey Him? 1 John 5:1-3 tells us that since the Lord is our loving Father, obedience comes from a familial, not legalistic relationship. This means that when we obey God, this relationship with Him is enriched, not constrained.…

The Forgotten Part of the Christmas Story

During Christmas, we often think of the birth of Jesus as the story of a baby in the manger.  But what about the part of the story that we forget? In this message, we are reminded of the importance of Christ’s genealogy (Matthew 1:1-16).  Not only does it contextualize the story of Jesus’ birth, but it also reminds us of God’s grace and inclusive love for all of us as members of His family.
