Sermons about Failure

Persevering When it Seems Pointless

Date: May 19, 2024 | Speaker:

You’ve been laboring diligently for God, but the results don’t seem as impressive as you’d hoped. Maybe your service, your ministry, your attempts to live for God feel small and insignificant compared to others or your own past experiences, leaving you asking, “Was God ever in this? Is He truly with me?” Don’t be discouraged. God has not abandoned you. Even if your efforts for Him seem trivial, they will never be in vain! God can do immeasurably more than you can imagine even through the smallest act of obedience, so remain faithful and leave the results to Him.

God Can Rewrite Your Story!

Date: February 25, 2023 | Speaker:

Have you ever felt trapped by your past or current circumstances, like you’re destined to repeat the same mistakes over and over? It may seem as though the deck has been stacked against you because of your upbringing, but there is a way to break free from those shackles. Don’t believe the lie that your past has already written the script for your future and you have no way to change it! Through Christ, you can rise above whatever has enslaved you and create a new legacy of faith for yourself and future generations. The choice is yours. Will you turn to the Lord and discover the life and freedom that await you?

Leave Yesterday Behind and Move On!

Date: December 31, 2023 | Speaker:

Driving a car always looking in the rearview mirror will inevitably lead to disaster. While we would never do such a foolish thing on the road, we often do just that in our spiritual journey. Memories of our past sins can weigh us down and immobilize us. Don’t waste time wallowing in your past failures or coasting on past successes. Leave yesterday behind and focus on the goal Christ has set before you. Fix your eyes on the prize that awaits, and run the race with purpose. Is there anything hindering your journey to the finish line? It’s time to break free and press on in the victory of Christ!

Your Past Can Become God’s Future

Date: May 21, 2023 | Speaker:

“It’s not my fault. I had a difficult childhood! If you only knew how hard my life has been, you’d understand why I am the way I am!” Have you ever heard anyone say things like that, or maybe you’ve said similar things yourself? It’s so easy to blame our circumstances or blame other people for our behavior, attitudes, or failures. But here’s an important truth — our environment doesn’t have to determine our destiny! God can free anyone from the chains of their past and give them a future that is filled with promise and purpose! If you are still trapped in an endless cycle of blame, you can be set free today. Don’t let your past keep you from God’s future!

Keep Fighting! God Will Win the War!

Date: March 12, 2023 | Speaker:

As followers of Christ we would all have to admit that we have often given in to Satan’s attacks and allowed him to have the victory. At times we may even feel overwhelmed by our sin and wonder if anything good will ever come out of our battles in this life. Be encouraged! God will take even our worst failures and ultimately use them for His glory. Believers throughout history have fallen again and again, but none of their failures have disrupted God’s plan. Keep fighting, and when you fall, get back up. Satan may win some battles over us, but God will win the war!

God is Still Good When Things are Bad

Date: August 14, 2022 | Speaker:

Where do you turn when life turns bad? What do you when your world is filled with chaos, heartache or pain? If you are in a place right now where you feel broken, empty and alone, and it seems like God is miles away, don’t stay there another minute! God is waiting for you to turn around and come back to Him. He will meet you with open arms of forgiveness, but He will go far beyond that… He longs to pour out His goodness and blessings upon you, and to restore the wasted years in your past. Even when things are bad, God is still good, so run to Him today!

Do You Need a Second Chance?

Date: July 24, 2022 | Speaker:

There are certain opportunities in life that only come your way once. If you miss them, you’ll never get a second chance. But you should be encouraged to know that God doesn’t treat us that way when we fail Him. He is a God of fresh starts and new beginnings who is patient and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in love. When we sin, God has every right to cast us aside forever, yet He forgives all who come to Him and restores them to useful service again. If you’ve failed in some way or you’ve turned away from God, turn back to Him now. He is ready to give you a second chance!

God’s Mercy in Our Failures

Date: January 23, 2022 | Speaker:

Most people think that the Book of Jonah is all about a man being swallowed by a huge fish, but actually it’s all about God’s incredible love and mercy for everyone, even those who hate Him. Chapter 1 shows us that even when we disobey God and bring trouble into our lives, He is still ready and eager to provide a way out and bring us back to Himself.

I’m Outta Here

Date: November 7, 2021 | Speaker:

We don’t have to travel far to be outside the will of God. All of us have deliberately strayed away from God at times, and we have all experienced the emptiness that ultimately comes with that choice. But even when we reach our lowest point, the Father is constantly looking and longing for us to come home; and when we do, He welcomes us back with open arms! Are you away from God today? Come back to Him right now and receive the love and forgiveness that He is waiting to give you.

Do You Need a New Beginning?

Date: September 12, 2021 | Speaker:

Because we are all sinful creatures we fail God and other people regularly. In those moments of failure we certainly deserve whatever condemnation and judgement might come our way, yet we can all recall times when God showed us His grace instead and gave us a fresh start. You may feel like you’ve blown it so badly that God will never take you back. But He stands ready right now to extend His grace and give you a new beginning!

Rejoicing in the Abundant Grace of God

Date: August 22, 2021 | Speaker:

Every one of us can look back over the years and see times when we failed God so miserably; times when we let our selfishness or stubbornness or foolishness take over. Looking back, it’s so clear to us now that if God hadn’t extended His grace to us in those moments, our lives would have been ruined. God doesn’t just barely give us grace, He gives us grace upon grace! Have you paused recently to thank Him for His abundant grace in your life?

Your Last Day On Earth

Date: August 15, 2021 | Speaker:

What if you were told that today was your last day on earth? How would that news impact your plans, and what regrets would you have? We should always be mindful of the brevity of life and make it our goal to live every day for the glory of God and for His mission. Too many people start well, but don’t finish well. Take encouragement from the lessons in this message to ensure that you will remain faithful to the very end.
