Sermons about Righteousness

The Spiritual Collapse of a Nation

Date: November 8, 2020 | Speaker:

How is it possible for a nation to be founded upon the Word of God, yet end up completely corrupted by sin and wickedness? The Book of Judges says this happens when everyone begins doing what is right in their own eyes. Any nation that abandons the moral absolutes of God will soon drift off course and become foolish in their thinking, and this will ultimately lead to their downfall. Has this already happened to America, and if so, how can we correct our course before it’s too late?

Covered by the Mercy of God

Date: February 23, 2020 | Speaker:

No matter how well you did in school, there is one test you will never pass, even if you spend a lifetime trying. Because of our sin, none of us will ever be able to pass the standard of God’s perfect Law of holiness, and failure to do so brings death! We were doomed without hope until Christ came and fulfilled the Law perfectly on our behalf, and then He willingly took the judgement for our sins upon Himself. What amazing love! If you are still trying to earn your way to God, why not receive His mercy today instead?

You’ll Never Be Good Enough!

Date: February 2, 2020 | Speaker:

Ask a hundred people to tell you who in this world will make it into heaven, and most of them will say, “The ones who are good, who don’t get drunk or do drugs or lie or cheat or steal, the ones who go to church, the ones who keep the Ten Commandments…” In other words, they’re saying if you perform good enough, God might let you in. But, in fact, the Bible says we can never be good enough to get into heaven. Well, that leaves us in a pretty bad spot! So what are we to do? If no one can be good enough to get into heaven, then how do we get there? Listen to today’s message for a look at the Ten Commandments that may surprise you.

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 Gives God the Right to Judge Me?

Date: June 30, 2019 | Speaker:

Maybe you’ve heard someone say, “If God is loving and kind, He would never judge anyone!” That may sound logical, but those same people cry out for justice and judgement the instant their child or spouse falls victim to a terrible crime. Their actions prove that wrong doing and evil must be judged. The lack of justice is, itself, wrong. Today we look at the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah and see why judgement had to fall. But we also see that God’s desire to save is far greater than His desire to punish!

Blessed are Those Who are Persecuted

Date: August 26, 2018 | Speaker:

There are many wonderful promises in the Bible that we should all become familiar with, but there is one promise that none of us really want to think about. Jesus promised that everyone who followed Him would be hated and persecuted by the world. While most of us have never been subjected to any kind of physical persecution, if we are truly living for righteousness, we will most certainly experience rejection, slander, and even hatred at times for our faith. This is one of the marks of a true believer. Is it evident in your life?

Blessed are the Pure in Heart

Date: August 12, 2018 | Speaker:

What are the requirements for gaining entrance into the kingdom of heaven? Church attendance won’t get you there, nor will giving money or being a good person. The only way we will ever be accepted by God is to have a pure heart, but the bad news is, none of us can attain a pure heart through our own efforts. We must have our hearts washed clean by the blood of Jesus. That alone will put us in a right standing before Him. Have you ever believed in Jesus for the forgiveness of your sins, or are you trying to earn it yourself?

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?

Blessed are the Poor in Spirit

Date: July 8, 2018 | Speaker:

Gaining entrance into heaven cannot be earned by our own efforts or goodness. We become part of God’s kingdom only when we recognize and admit that we are totally bankrupt spiritually, and that we are utterly dependent upon God’s mercy and grace to save us. Being poor in spirit is not a quality the world admires, but everyone who humbles themselves in this way and receives the forgiveness of the cross is blessed by God with the promise of eternal life.

The Truth Will Set You Free

Our Unchanging God of Righteousness

Date: April 15, 2018 | Speaker:

In order to understand our need of freedom from sin, we must first understand our God. Many know He is a God of love, but He is also a God of righteousness, and our knowledge of these two qualities must be kept in balance. Listen as we take a look at what Scripture tells us about our righteous God, including an eye-opening glimpse at some of His righteous acts.

The Religious Man Who Went to Hell

Date: July 3, 2016 | Speaker:

“I’m not a bad person.” This is the response many people give when asked why God should allow them into heaven. But believing that we are good enough for heaven will actually send us to hell! No amount of religion or good deeds can ever save us. This only happens when we see our sin and admit our need for a Savior. So, are you good or are you saved?
