Sermons about Courage

Where Will You Stand When It Matters Most?

Date: March 17, 2023 | Speaker:

We all assume that if we were ever faced with the choice of standing up for Christ or being put to death, we would stand boldly in our faith without wavering. But would we? World War II exposed the stark contrast between Christians who turned a blind eye to evil and those like Dietrich Bonhoeffer who stood against it, even at the cost of their own lives. In Ezekiel’s time, God searched for one person willing to stand in the gap for Him, but He found no one! Instead, His people chose to go along with the wickedness around them. As our world continues to drift further away from God, Christians must consider their own response. Will you be the one to stand in the gap for God, even when it seems like no one else will?

Beyond Your Abilities: Finding Strength in God’s Spirit

Date: February 4, 2023 | Speaker:

Have you ever been prompted by God to do something so daunting or beyond your abilities that it left you paralyzed in fear? Maybe it was an invitation to teach your first Sunday School class, share your faith with an unfriendly neighbor, or go on a mission trip to a dangerous land. Even though you may feel incapable, don’t spend one more day hesitating! God has promised to empower you for whatever He calls you to do, regardless of the challenges you may face. God gave Ezekiel a task that terrified him, but his response challenges us to find strength in God’s Spirit and trust in His ultimate plan, no matter how overwhelming it may seem. Remember, the same God who empowered Ezekiel will empower you!

Preparing Today for Tomorrow’s Trials

Date: December 3, 2023 | Speaker:

What godly character traits and spiritual disciplines are you ‌building into your life today ‌that will enable you to ‌withstand the fiercest storms and finish strong for God? Unwavering resolve is not a result of spontaneous courage but a day-by-day commitment to walk in righteousness and integrity. Pay close attention to your daily choices, because that’s where character is formed. As you devote yourself to prayer, cultivate integrity, and foster discipline, you are laying the groundwork for a faith that refuses to bow in the face of temptations and trials. Start this transformative process today, because tomorrow’s trials are unpredictable, but your commitment to godly living can be unwavering if you have laid the right foundation.

Thriving in a Culture of Compromise

Date: October 1, 2023 | Speaker:

We are constantly bombarded with societal pressures and temptations that seek to undermine our faith. The world around us often encourages us to abandon our godly principles for momentary pleasures or worldly success. In those moments, remember that your identity is not defined by the opinions or expectations of others. It is rooted in your relationship with God and His unwavering love for you. When faced with pressure to compromise, choose righteousness over conformity. God will equip you with everything you need to remain faithful amidst any intimidation or trial!

But Because You Say So, I Will

Date: September 17, 2023 | Speaker:

When Jesus called Simon and the other disciples to follow Him, He displayed His power through a miraculous catch of fish. This encounter changed these men’s lives forever and reminds us of what Jesus can do in us and through us when we step out in obedience to Him. Jesus used these men to impact the world for the Kingdom and it all started with Simon’s obedience to put his net out into deep water. Are you ready and willing to obey Him however He may lead?

Courageous Faith

Date: September 5, 2021 | Speaker:

The Centurion courageously and desperately sought after the only One who could change his servant’s situation. In the process, the Centurion displayed amazing faith in what Jesus could do and ultimately saw Jesus bring glory to God by healing his servant. Even though we may not always see the rewards of our faith on this earth like the Centurion did, we can trust that God is working in all our situations to bring glory and honor to Him. Are you desiring to bring God glory by desperately seeking and trusting Him with the situations in your life?

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?

Obeying God When it Doesn’t Make Sense

Date: July 11, 2021 | Speaker:

If God only called us to do things we could easily do, to give what we could easily give, then we really wouldn’t need Him at all. His calls always stretch us beyond our limits and our resources so that we will be forced to trust completely in Him. Is there anything God has already prompted you to do that you’ve been putting off because you feel unequipped or incapable? Why not step out in obedience and faith today and watch how He will use you!

Having a Strong Faith in Weak Times

Date: June 13, 2021 | Speaker:

American Christians have had it easy for a very long time. It really hasn’t cost current generations anything to follow Christ. That’s a blessing, but it has sadly created a sense of apathy and entitlement in the church, causing Christians to always want the easiest, most convenient path. That kind of faith will never withstand the tests that are most certainly coming for the church! We must begin right now to put our own desires aside and make certain that we are rooted deeply in Christ, and that we are living wholly for His mission.

Don’t Wait for a Better Time to Follow God

Date: September 13, 2020 | Speaker:

It’s easy to follow God when you don’t have to risk anything; when you’re healthy; when you’ve got money; when there’s no trouble in sight. But God calls us to follow Him when our strength is failing; when there’s no money; when the path ahead is filled with obstacles. Has God already called you to obey Him in some area, but you’re waiting for a better time? Right now is the time to step out and follow Him by faith!
