Sermons about God's Mercy

God’s Love is Bigger Than Your Failures

Date: September 8, 2019 | Speaker:

Jacob had ruined his life. He had lied to and cheated his family, and now he was about to pay! When his brother threatened to kill him, Jacob fled for his life, and while running away from his sin, he ran straight into God! Surprisingly, God met Jacob in love, and it changed his life. Sometimes we also try to run from the consequences of our sin, but we must remember that God’s love is greater than our sin! He longs to restore us to Himself if we will just surrender.

Are You Still Hiding from God?

Date: February 24, 2019 | Speaker:

Satan enticed Adam and Eve to sin against God, and the first thing they became aware of was their nakedness. Their shame forced them to cover themselves and go into hiding from God’s presence. Sin still causes us to do the very same thing today. It strips us bare and leaves us feeling shame and guilt, so our first instinct is to hide from God. But just as God came calling for Adam, He is calling for us to come and be forgiven and clothed by Him. Are you willing to come out of hiding into His presence?

Blessed are the Merciful

Date: August 5, 2018 | Speaker:

Deeply ingrained in every human heart is a desire for justice. This is part of the image of God that has been imprinted on our nature, but because of sin, our desire for justice has been distorted. It now lurks inside us, keeping track of all the ways other people have offended us, and constantly demanding that they pay for what they’ve done. But rather than seeking revenge, Jesus said His followers should be quick to show mercy by forgiving the debts of others, even if they don’t deserve it. After all, God forgave us of all our sin, and we did nothing to deserve it!

Bruised Reeds and Smoldering Wicks

Date: July 1, 2018 | Speaker:

At some point in life, every believer will go through seasons when they feel bruised and beaten down by trials. During those times, discouragement can cause our spiritual fire to dwindle and almost burn out. How wonderful to know that Christ has promised He will never break a bruised reed or snuff out a smoldering wick! He comes to the weakest of us with mercy and grace, gently lifts us up, and lovingly restores us to himself again.

God Uses Imperfect People

Date: September 3, 2017 | Speaker:

Most people have only heard the Sunday School version of Esther, where she is described in almost perfect, fairy tale terms. But Esther’s life was far from perfect. Like all of us, she started out struggling, learning and growing in her faith. In time, God took that imperfect young girl and used her in great ways. And in that story, we all find the story of our own lives, and we can thank God that He still uses imperfect people like us!

Restoring Broken Things

Date: August 20, 2017 | Speaker:

It is amazing to see how a skilled artist can take broken pieces of glass and carefully assemble them into a stained glass window to create a beautiful work of art. This reminds us how we were once broken and shattered by sin, but Jesus restored us into something beautiful by His grace, and now our lives can reflect His glory!

Our Glorious Privilege as Christians

Date: March 5, 2017 | Speaker:

Why did God save us and then leave us here? Is it just to sit through boring church services every Sunday; give part of our hard-earned paycheck away; obey a long list of religious rules, and be forced to serve in the children’s ministry? Well, if that’s your view of the Christian life, we’ve got good news for you! God has a much more noble purpose for your life than that, and you’ll discover it in today’s message.

Can I Lose My Salvation?

Date: January 22, 2017 | Speaker:

Have you ever flown standby? You’re always left wondering if you’re going to get a seat on the flight or not, and it can make you feel anxious and uncertain. Sadly, this is how many Christians see their relationship with Jesus. They live every day in constant fear, wondering if they’ve lost their salvation. If that describes you, listen to this message and discover what the Bible says about your eternal security.

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?

Remembering God’s Faithfulness

Date: December 6, 2015 | Speaker:

Today we stop and look back over the years to remember God’s faithfulness to us as a church family. It is astounding and humbling to see just how good God has been to us along every mile of our journey, from the very first day until now. Join us as we give thanks to our gracious heavenly Father for His unending faithfulness to us.

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?

Walking in the New Life, Part 1: The Truth About Sin

Date: June 17, 2012 | Speaker:

In order to rise-up beyond the lowlands of salvation, we must first be resolute in our understanding of God’s character when it comes to sin. God has not changed, and repentance is a foundation stone on which the new life must be built.
