Sermons from Isaiah

A Dying Man’s Request

Date: June 21, 2015 | Speaker:

Is the great commission a humanitarian cause to better mankind? If we think of the Great Commission as Karma, then it really is nothing more than a humanitarian cause. So what is the motivating factor that causes men and women through history to be obedient to the Great Commission?

Fully Committed to God’s Will

Date: March 15, 2015 | Speaker:

Have you ever had a task before you that you dreaded so much, you tried to find ways to delay it or to keep from having to do it at all? Maybe it was a difficult exam, a dentist appointment, or a meeting with your boss. But none of those events come close to the crushing pressure that Jesus faced as He made His way to the cross. So then, what caused Him to pick up the pace and walk boldly towards Jerusalem, straight into the suffering that awaited Him, and what can we learn from His example?

Confidence in the Absolute Providence of God

Date: February 8, 2015 | Speaker:

Just a quick glance at the headlines reminds us that we live in a world filled with trouble. Terrorism, wars, toppling governments, economic instability — it’s enough to make us want to run and hide. But even though we live in a world of fear, we do not have to live in fear! The Bible reminds us that God is in complete control of all things, and that nothing happens in the world at large or in our own lives that is outside of His providence. Knowing this truth will bring us peace even in the most troubling times of life.

An Unwanted Gift

Date: December 14, 2014 | Speaker:

Imagine spending weeks searching for the perfect gift for someone you dearly love, paying an outrageous price to purchase it, carefully wrapping it in just the right paper, then giving it to them with great excitement, only to have them throw it in the trash can! Surely no one would ever respond to such extravagant kindness in such a cruel way. Yet the Bible tells us that God gave the gift of His Son to the world, and they rejected Him. John 1:11 says, “He came to his own, but his own did not receive him.” What have you done with the gift of Jesus? Are there areas of your life where He is still unwanted?

The Decline and Fall of America

Date: July 6, 2014 | Speaker:

At the very same moment our founding fathers declared our independence from Britain, they were also declaring our absolute dependence upon God. Regardless of what revisionists say, the facts clearly prove that America was founded on the principles of God’s Word. Because of this, America was once a nation blessed and protected by God, but since we have now forced God out of our country, we are in decline like never before and are facing His judgement. This message is a wake-up call for all who will listen!

The Humiliation of Christ

Date: June 29, 2014 | Speaker:

When we read in the Bible that Jesus left heaven and came to earth to save us, do we have any idea just what that really means? The King of glory laid aside His royal robe and wrapped Himself in human flesh. He exchanged His home in heaven to have no place to lay His head on earth. He willingly endured mocking and slander, was abandoned by His closest friends, suffered an excruciating death on a cross, and He did it all for you!

The Double Minded Man

Date: October 27, 2013 | Speaker:

The double minded man is unstable in all his ways. We live each day in a war, the flesh against the Spirit. We will be unstable in all our ways if we do not submit ourselves to God. He gives the spirit of wisdom; the spirit of understanding; the spirit of counsel; the spirit of strength; the spirit of knowledge, and the spirit of the fear of the Lord. These are brought about from within us, for the Spirit of God makes His dwelling within us. They are not tacked on from the outside. Full submission of our heart to God is the beginning.

Our Dying Savior Gives New Life

Date: May 19, 2013 | Speaker:

The death of Christ on the cross changes more than our legal status before God in heaven. It does more than just save us from our sins and give us a home in heaven. His death must also bring about a complete change in our daily walk here on earth. It is impossible for anyone to have a genuine encounter with Jesus Christ and walk away unchanged! Today we celebrate not only the death Jesus died, but the life He gives. Are you living that new life?

What Child is This?

Date: December 30, 2012 | Speaker:

Centuries before Jesus came, people shook their heads and wondered what kind of Savior this might be who the prophets said would come, not as a mighty warrior, but as a little baby. Then, when He did come, people shook their heads in wonder and amazement at the things He said and did, as they asked each other, “Who is this?” Today, this continues to be life’s most important question — deciding for ourselves who this Child really is. Have you answered this all-important question?

Do You Hear What I Hear?

Date: December 9, 2012 | Speaker:

October 1962 was a time of tremendous uncertainty and fear for Americans. The Cuban missile crisis had reached its most critical hour as America stood toe to toe with the Soviets and wondered if a nuclear war was imminent.  People were gripped with panic, and it was during this dreadful time that Noel Regney wrote the song, Do You Hear What I Hear? It was a prayer for peace, encouraging everyone everywhere to look carefully and listen closely to the message that the Baby in the manger brings to all who will trust in Him. Jesus alone can bring true peace in life’s most troubling times. Do you know the peace that He gives?

Safe in the Hands of God

Date: February 26, 2012 | Speaker:

Living a righteous life does not exempt us from suffering. In fact, the Bible says we often see the wicked getting what the righteous deserve, and the righteous getting what the wicked deserve. While this may leave us confused and unsettled, there is one thing we can know for sure — that we are all in God’s hands. Both the good times and the bad times of life are in God’s hands and under His watchful care. Even though you may not be able to make sense of the circumstances in your life right now, you can take great comfort in knowing that God is holding you safely in His hands!

Living Life for the Sake of Others

Date: February 5, 2012 | Speaker:

In a world filled with non-stop advertising telling us how to improve OUR finances, OUR career, OUR possessions, OUR lifestyle, etc., it requires constant diligence to remind ourselves that as followers of Christ, this life is NOT about us! The truth is, the more we gather for ourselves, the more enslaved we become. Real life and freedom can only be found when we give our lives away. So how do we rise above this temptation to live for ourselves and answer the call of Christ to live for the sake of others?
