Sermons from John

Everlasting Father

Date: December 18, 2016 | Speaker:

In the deepest part of our hearts, we all long to find endless love. Songs and books have been written about it, movies have been made about it, and yet none of us have ever known a perfect, unbroken endless love from another person. But the Bible tells us about a love that will never come to an end, not even when we die. Have you ever received this gift of everlasting love?

Why Are We Seeking Jesus?

Date: November 27, 2016 | Speaker:

The feeding of the 5000 is considered a major transition point in Jesus’ ministry. Crowds of people came to him, seeking him, wanting to learn more about this man who was doing these miraculous things. But after the feeding of the 5000, people stop following him and actually many turn away. Why do they do that? Why don’t they continue following him?

You Refuse to Come to Me

Date: August 21, 2016 | Speaker:

Jesus told the most religious people in Jerusalem that even though they diligently studied the Scriptures, they still did not have the very life of which the Scriptures spoke. How is that possible? It’s possible because we can read the Bible, go to church and do all kinds of religious things, yet still completely miss Jesus! You may be religious, but have you ever come to Jesus to find the life, forgiveness and hope that only He provides?

Dying to Encounter Jesus

Date: August 14, 2016 | Speaker:

Two criminals were crucified beside Jesus; one on His right and one on His left. One of them cursed Jesus and was plunged into hell, but the other one cried out for mercy and was given eternal life in heaven. All of mankind is pictured in those two criminals. We will all die on one side of Jesus or the other; either rejecting Him or receiving Him. Which one are you? Are you ready to face eternity?

Disappointed With Jesus

Date: August 7, 2016 | Speaker:

Have you ever felt disappointed with Jesus? Have there been times when you cried out to Him for help, but He didn’t show up the way you prayed and hoped He would? We must learn that His delays always have a purpose, and in those times when we cannot see the power of Jesus, we must continue to trust in the person of Jesus. Although He may delay, He always knows what He is doing and He knows what is best!

Do You Want to Get Well?

Date: July 31, 2016 | Speaker:

Surely no one would ever walk up to a sick person and ask if he really wanted to get well; unless the one asking the question knew that this person had deeper issues that first needed to be dealt with. Even as Christians, we can get stuck in ruts of sin or excuses that keep us immobilized, and sometimes we prefer to just stay there. Are there any ruts in your life that you need to get out of?

Allowed to Suffer for God’s Glory

Date: July 24, 2016 | Speaker:

We sometimes grow impatient or even angry with God if He allows pain and sorrow into our lives. We question His love for us and wonder why a good God would ever allow us to hurt. But we must realize that we exist for one reason only, and that is bring glory to God; and whatever methods He may choose in order to be glorified through us are right and good. Have you ever come to terms with this vital truth?

The Sinner Who Went to Heaven

Date: July 10, 2016 | Speaker:

When a person is saved, how long should it take for the evidence of that to show up in their life? How about the same day! Regardless of how sinful our past may be or how little we know about the Bible, the moment we are saved, we become a new creation, and the evidence will be visible in us. Today we witness the life-changing encounter one man had with Jesus, and we see how his life was instantly made new! Have you had this encounter with Jesus?

Reaching Our City

Date: May 15, 2016 | Speaker:

What if an entire church left the comfort and convenience of their air-conditioned auditorium on a Sunday morning and took their service out into different parts of the city to carry the Gospel to others? Today, LifePoint Church begins the first of many outdoor services in our goal to reach our city for Christ, because He never told the church to sit and wait; He sent them to go and tell!

Can I Know God Without Knowing Jesus?

Date: April 24, 2016 | Speaker:

The most outrageous claim the Bible makes is that Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven. What an offensive, closed-minded thing to say! But what if it’s true, and what evidence can you examine to know for sure? Today we explore this claim to find out if believing in Jesus really matters.

Love Is Not a Feeling

Date: April 3, 2016 | Speaker:

Fish are known for swimming. Birds are known for flying. What are Christians known for? This question brings many different answers depending on who you ask, but the one thing Jesus said we should be known for is our love. John said if we don’t love others we’re guilty of murder! Today we take an honest look at our own lives to see if we are truly loving others the way Jesus loved us.

The Need for Authentic Christianity

Date: January 17, 2016 | Speaker:

The early church faced persecution from its inception, but after a few decades, a new enemy appeared that was even more deadly. False teachers arose from within their own ranks and began to destroy the church from the inside. John wrote this letter to give clear ways to distinguish false doctrine from authentic Christianity. Does your life show evidence of these marks of a genuine believer?
