Sermons about Character

Surrounded by Truth but Living a Lie

Date: October 3, 2021 | Speaker:

We have all had the awful experience of seeing a news story about a Christian ministry whose leaders were charged with embezzlement or some other crime. It’s a reminder of how close we can be to the truth, but still be living a lie. We can worship and pray and serve in the church, but have hearts that are far from God. What about you? Is Christ your highest pursuit, or are you just going through the motions?

Courageous Love

Date: August 29, 2021 | Speaker:

Joseph of Arimathea went from a secret follower of Christ to a man who used what God had given him to courageously and sacrificially love His Lord. Christ’s death on the Cross changed Joseph and the Cross can change you as well. How is the Cross impacting you today? Are you courageously and sacrificially loving Jesus with what He has given you?

The Love of a Lifetime

Date: May 30, 2021 | Speaker:

Whether they admit it or not, every person ever born wants to be loved. We long to know what it’s like to be completely accepted and treasured by someone, regardless of our flaws and failures. Sadly, that kind of perfect love cannot be found in this world. There’s only one place that perfect, unfailing love can be found, and it’s waiting for you right now. Do you know where to find it?

Don’t Put Your Hope in the Wrong Leader

Date: March 21, 2021 | Speaker:

We live in a world where leaders fail us on a regular basis. Pastors fall, elected officials betray us, and our heroes let us down. Even the greatest leaders at their very best are flawed. There is only One in whom we can totally place our trust. His kingdom will never fall and He will reign in truth and justice forever. If you put your faith in any earthly leader, you will be disappointed. Put your hope in Jesus. He will never fail you!

What Kind of Legacy Will You Leave?

Date: February 28, 2021 | Speaker:

All of us will leave a legacy behind that will continue to live on after we are gone, and that legacy will either glorify God or it will glorify Satan. The choices we’re making today — our plans, our pursuits and our passions — are already shaping that legacy. Are we living each day with the big picture in mind to ensure that God will be honored through our life, and that He will continue to be honored even after we die?

Will You Defend God’s Honor?

Date: February 21, 2021 | Speaker:

On our list of priorities, plans and life’s goals, how high have we placed “bringing honor and glory to God?” Is that even on our list? Is it something we ever think about? At critical times throughout history there have been moments when God searched for just one person who would stand up for Him. Sometimes He found that person. Sometimes He did not. Are you committed to standing alone for God, if necessary, and using your life to bring Him glory?

Learning to See How God Sees

Date: February 14, 2021 | Speaker:

Have you ever met someone for the first time and then discovered later that you had unfairly misjudged them based solely on what you saw? We tend to judge people by what we see on the outside, but God warns us that this is wrong. What matters most to God is on the inside, because who we really are flows out of the condition of our heart. So, are we more concerned with how we look on the outside than how we look on the inside?

Highlights From a Wasted Life

Date: February 7, 2021 | Speaker:

King Saul had it all. He was tall, handsome, popular and powerful. But while he may have looked like the perfect king on the outside, everyone soon discovered that he had no substance on the inside. His pride and lack of self-discipline caused him to ignore God’s commands and follow his own desires. Sadly, this became his downfall and led him to a life of rebellion and destruction. He should serve as a warning to all of us about the danger of disregarding God’s Word and going our own way.

When God Goes Silent

Date: January 17, 2021 | Speaker:

One of the most disturbing verses in the Bible is: “The word of the Lord was rare in those days.” This was a period of history when God’s people had turned their back on Him, and God’s word was no longer heard. Because the people didn’t want to hear from God, they drifted in darkness for many years. Are you in a season of silence right now, wondering where God is? Has it felt like forever since the word of God has gripped your heart? Perhaps this message will be a timely encouragement to you today!

Five Fools in America

Date: October 11, 2020 | Speaker:

No one likes to be called a fool. Sometimes that word is used in a hurtful sense to simply belittle another person, but there are five kinds of people that God actually does identify as fools. In the world’s eyes, these people may be successful, powerful, admired and influential; but in God’s eyes they are fools. Do you know what thoughts, attitudes and actions qualify a person as a fool, so that you can make sure you are not listed in that category?

Where is God When Life Hurts?

Date: October 6, 2019 | Speaker:

When life turns out differently than we had hoped, when our plans are dashed, when hardships and suffering come our way, we tend to say, “God, where are you?” This is because we are basing God’s presence and love for us on our immediate circumstances instead of on His Word. Joseph was a young man whose life was filled with trials, yet he continued trusting in God, even through the tears and pain. He could do this because he knew that, despite the trouble that came his way, God was with him, and He was using it all for His greater purpose.

Fears That Hide Our Faith

Date: May 19, 2019 | Speaker:

It sometimes seems easier to trust God with the big issues in life than it does to trust Him with our daily needs. When trials and fears build up, they often loom so large that they blind us from seeing the truth of God’s promises. In those moments, our faith crumbles and we rush to find immediate solutions rather than resting in God’s timing. Are there any areas right now where you are allowing fear to hide your faith and overshadow God’s truth?
