Sermons about Life's Purpose

Broken but Blessed

Date: October 2, 2022 | Speaker:

One of the most remarkable details about the life of Christ is often overlooked. The Bible tells us that on the same night Jesus was betrayed; on the same night Peter denied Him; on the same night he was falsely accused, beaten and spat upon… he gave thanks. He gave thanks! How was He able to be thankful even when facing the most excruciating trial of His life? It’s because He trusted His Father’s plan completely and He knew with absolute certainty that even when He was being broken, the very trial that was breaking Him had already been blessed by His Father. We are also called to give thanks in all circumstances, but do we have that same level of trust in our heavenly Father’s plan for us?

Pillars of Prayer

Date: September 4, 2022 | Speaker:

Burdened by what He witnessed upon His arrival to Jerusalem, Jesus cleared the temple. His zeal for the Father consumed him. Jesus declared that His Father’s house was to be a place of prayer for all nations.

With the many and frequent distractions we face in a world that is raising its fists towards heaven, it is difficult to take time to shut everything down and focus on seeking, prayer and worship. We see that over 650 prayers are recorded in the Bible and 25 of those prayers were by Jesus.

We will look at 4 prayers in the Bible, represented in the Old and New Testament, that all hinge on the declaration, “Your Kingdom Come”. The only way to see God’s Kingdom principles and path forward in our lives, and in our church, is to stop the spin and confusion from the “World’s Kingdom” by being a pillar of prayer.

Glory of God

Date: December 26, 2021 | Speaker:

The glory of God is expressed in the person, character and nature of Jesus Christ. The cross is the ultimate expression of the glory of God on earth with reference to God the Father (His love, grace, mercy) and to Jesus Christ (His humble submission in obedience to the will and predetermined plan of God the Father). The outworking of the glory of God in the cross is salvation and eternal life to lost humanity. When born again believers live out the character of Jesus Christ, believers are glorifying God and reflecting His light. This is only able to be achieved through the ministry of the indwelling Holy Spirit.

Will You Leave a Godly Legacy?

Date: October 31, 2021 | Speaker:

Whether we realize it or not, all of us will leave a legacy after we die, and the kind of legacy we leave will be determined by the life we’re living right now. If we remain committed to living for Christ and loving others, then we can pass on a godly legacy to those who come after us. The end of your life does not have to be the end of the impact your life will have. Your faith can go on living long after you’re gone!

God is Calling. Are You Listening?

Date: August 1, 2021 | Speaker:

Many Christians tend to think that a “call of God” is only something pastors or missionaries receive, but if you’re saved, God is constantly prompting your heart to follow Him in many different ways. The question is, do you recognize His voice when He speaks, and will you obey what He is asking you to do?

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!

Getting Everything but Having Nothing

Date: June 6, 2021 | Speaker:

If you could pray one prayer and instantly have everything you’ve ever wanted, would you do it? Most of us think we would be happier if we just had a little more, but is that really true? King Solomon had more money, possessions and fame than anyone in the world, but he hated life and was overcome with emptiness and frustration. If your search for meaning and happiness has led you to a dead end, this message will show you the only path to true joy and fulfillment.

Turning and Trusting – Part 2

Date: May 9, 2021 | Speaker:

The Bible tells us that those who trust in God are “blessed”. However, trusting in God during uncertain times can be difficult. Jeremiah 17 reminds us that God has provided us with everything we need to trust in Him and when we stay connected to Him during challenging times, God uses us to impact the lives of those around us and to ultimately bring Him glory. God is worthy and able to carry us through whatever journey we are on. Are you trusting in Him today?

If God Came to Live With You…

Date: April 18, 2021 | Speaker:

Imagine if God announced to you and to the world that His presence was going to come down from heaven and take up permanent residence in your house. How would that news impact your life? If you’re saved, God is already living in a place far more personal than your house. He’s living in you! This is an amazing truth that should fill us with awe and transform our entire future! Can others see that you are the temple of God and that He lives inside 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?

The Call to Discipleship

Date: October 25, 2020 | Speaker:

When Jesus calls us to follow Him and become His disciple, He requires nothing less than a total commitment. He said that everyone who would follow Him must deny themselves, take up their cross and follow Him. We cannot negotiate the terms of this call. We must be willing to sign a blank contract and let Him fill in the terms later. Are you following Jesus with this kind of total commitment, or are you still holding some areas of your life back from Him?
