Sermons about Priorities

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!

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?

Learning to See How God Sees

Date: February 14, 2021 | Speaker:

Have you ever met someone for the first time and then discovered later that you had unfairly misjudged them based solely on what you saw? We tend to judge people by what we see on the outside, but God warns us that this is wrong. What matters most to God is on the inside, because who we really are flows out of the condition of our heart. So, are we more concerned with how we look on the outside than how we look on the inside?

An Extraordinary Response to an Intentional Encounter Part 1

Date: August 16, 2020 | Speaker:

As a tax collector, Levi was an unlikely candidate for the gospel. However, Jesus had a plan to further His Kingdom and that plan included Levi. When Christ came calling, Levi trusted Christ and obeyed Him. In these uncertain times, God is still calling unlikely candidates to trust and obey Him so that His name might be exalted. How is God calling you today?

Are You Headed Toward Spiritual Excellence?

Date: July 19, 2020 | Speaker:

If you were given the choice of living a mediocre life versus living an excellent life, you would most likely choose excellence. None of us want to live a mediocre life, but do we feel the same about our spiritual life? The Bible gives us some simple things we can begin doing that will lead us toward spiritual maturity and excellence, and you can start building them into your life today!

The Part of Worship We Tend to Ignore

Date: July 12, 2020 | Speaker:

Out of all the commands God gives in the Bible, there is one in particular that people have a hard time hearing. Sermons about love, grace and mercy are welcomed, but any talk about money in the church is often met with resistance. God’s instructions about giving are not designed to constrain us. They will actually bring us freedom and joy! Are we willing to hear what God wants to teach us?

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?

Looking Forward

Date: December 1, 2019 | Speaker:

Scripture promises a new heaven and a new earth for followers of Christ. Peter reminds us of how this promise should impact our lives today. The goals that we are striving for in the future will always impact our choices in the present. Knowing that we will one day see Christ should motivate us to live holy lives here and now. Are we looking forward to that day, and are we living expectant, intentional holy lives in light of it?

What Would You Not Give Up for God?

Date: July 14, 2019 | Speaker:

When we give clothing, furniture or other items to charities, we typically give things that are old and worn; items that have lost their value to us. But what if a charity asked people to give their most valuable possession in the world? They probably wouldn’t receive a single donation. Today we look into an event where God asked Abraham to sacrifice the most beloved treasure he had. Abraham’s response is both shocking and inspiring, and it raises the question, “What would you not give up if God asked you for it?”

When Trust Turns Into Trials

Date: May 12, 2019 | Speaker:

Have you ever stepped out to follow God, only to discover when you got to where you were going, that it didn’t look anything like you thought it would? Has your obedience ever been followed by trials and testing? This is exactly what happened to Abram after he obeyed God’s call. It all started out very different than he must have imagined, but at just the right time, God fulfilled every one of His promises. If you are faithfully following God, but your life isn’t what you hoped for, keep trusting Him. He will not steer you wrong.

Abandoning Our Towers of Significance

Date: April 7, 2019 | Speaker:

Every person ever born spends some portion of their life searching for significance, status, peace, identity, belonging, and a long list of things that they know are missing from deep within them. Sadly, we often try to build those things into our life through career advancement, relationships, pleasure, prominence and possessions, only to realize later that all the towers of significance we have constructed are empty. But there is one place where all of these things can be found in abundance, and you can discover that place today!

Blessed are Those Who Hunger and Thirst

Date: July 29, 2018 | Speaker:

Imagine being lost alone in a vast desert with no food or water. After several days your body loses all strength and you know that you can’t survive much longer. You would give everything you own for even a sip of water or a small bite of food. This is the kind of intense hunger and thirst Jesus said we should have for righteousness. It should be our first desire and a lifelong pursuit so that our lives will bring Him glory. What are you pursuing above everything else?
