Sermons about Consecration

Turning Our Hearts Back to God

Date: July 18, 2021 | Speaker:

We were created to worship God and bring Him glory. However, sometimes we lose sight of that and choose instead to put other things in the place of the love, devotion and worship that belong to Him alone. When that happens we are, in a very real sense, worshiping other gods on the altar of our heart. God will use any means necessary to destroy those idols and turn our hearts back to Him. Are there any areas of your heart that need to be given back completely to God?

You Can’t Follow God by Accident

Date: October 18, 2020 | Speaker:

How would God rate our service to Him right now? Is it a sincere, fully-devoted service, or are we still holding onto things that displease Him? Living a life of faithfulness to God will not happen by accident. It will only happen if we choose to put Him first every single day of our lives, and put to death every “idol” that is taking His place. Is there anything God has told you to get rid of that you are still allowing to reside in your heart?

When Victory is Followed by Defeat

Date: October 4, 2020 | Speaker:

Throughout history, many victories on the battlefield have been immediately followed by crushing defeat. This is a syndrome called Victory Disease. It is brought on when the euphoria of winning dulls the senses and creates a feeling of invincibility. The same thing happens in the Christian life. We’re standing one day and crawling the next. We must never let down our guard, especially in moments of triumph.

The Danger of Living in Disobedience

Date: September 20, 2020 | Speaker:

“It’s just a small sin… it’s no big deal!” We are so quick to convince ourselves that God is willing to tolerate our sin, as long as we are still going to church, giving some money, and doing religious things. But even the smallest amount of known sin in our lives contaminates our entire relationship with God, just as a small amount of poison contaminates an entire glass of water. Are there areas of disobedience in your life that you have been tolerating? Bring them to God today!

Are You Committing Spiritual Adultery?

Date: June 21, 2020 | Speaker:

Imagine a married couple saying how committed they are to each other, but then asking if they can still date other people. How disturbing that would be! Yet we often do the same thing as followers of Christ. We declare our total allegiance to Him while our hearts pursue idols of every kind. He has made it clear that He will not accept anything less than our total commitment. Are there any areas of your life that you still have not surrendered completely to Him?

The Road to Sinai

Date: January 26, 2020 | Speaker:

It took only days to get Israel out of Egypt but it took years to get Egypt out of Israel. This study reviews the beginning of Israel’s wilderness wanderings from the crossing of the Red sea to their arrival at Mt Sinai. It explores new evidence found in the last few decades that suggests we may be wrong about the traditional location of the mountain where God gave the 10 commandments.

Remembering God’s Deliverance

Date: November 5, 2017 | Speaker:

We humans are very good at forgetting things, and the more time that passes, the easier it is for old memories to fade away. This is why God told His people constantly to stop and remember what He had done for them, and to pass those memories on to future generations. When is the last time you intentionally stopped to remember and celebrate something good God had done for you or your family? Why not do it today?

Giving Ourselves Completely to God

Living in Response to God’s Mercy

Date: January 4, 2015 | Speaker:

In a culture that constantly urges us to strive to get ahead, to climb the ladder of success, to never settle for second place… what motivation could there possibly be to completely surrender our lives to the will of someone else? This command of Jesus comes as a startling shock to our senses. Surely no one would ever demand such a thing! And yet that’s precisely what Jesus demands. Could there be any reason compelling enough to make us not only obey this command, but to do it willingly?

Are You Consecrated?

Are You Consecrated?

Date: December 28, 2014 | Speaker:

The well-known preacher, Jonathan Edwards, once wrote the following New Year’s resolution: “I will live for God. If no one else does, I still will.” He was making a commitment to consecrate himself to God regardless of the decisions or opinions of others. The word consecrate means to set apart, and the Bible says our lives must be set apart for God’s use. Are we willing to consecrate ourselves to live for God, even if no one else does?
