Sermons about Sin

Contend for the Faith

Date: November 13, 2022 | Speaker:

Have you read the letter of Jude lately? It’s a short letter with a bold message, and it’s for all believers everywhere. Jude brings attention to a danger to the faith, and he doesn’t beat around the bush when he writes about it. His passionate appeal is as relevant for us today as it was for first and second generation believers. Are you willing to receive his timeless call to contend for the faith?

Are You Cheating on God?

Date: October 23, 2022 | Speaker:

Millions of people have experienced the sickening heartache of discovering that their spouse has been unfaithful to them. It is a pain that cuts very deep, leaves scars and destroys lives. In the Bible, God describes His people as His bride who has continuously committed adultery with other lovers. The anguish God feels is almost unbearable to read. Sadly, you and I are all guilty of the same thing because sin is spiritual adultery. Through the vivid imagery of the book of Hosea we get a sobering look at what our sin actually does to God, and we hear once again the call to return to Him and make things right.

The Destructive Consequences of Our Sin

Date: August 7, 2022 | Speaker:

One little bug can’t harm a whole crop, but a swarm of locusts can devour and destroy an entire countryside in just minutes! We may not think that our “little” sins will ever harm anyone else, but the ripple effects might actually be felt for generations to come. The book of Joel describes a time when God’s people and their land suffered complete devastation as a result of their sin, and there was only one way to fix it. God called them to be genuinely brokenhearted, to repent of their sin, and to return to Him. If they did this, He promised to restore what they had lost and pour out His blessings upon them once again. If you are away from God right now and suffering the consequences of your sin, you don’t have to stay there! Return to Him today and receive the forgiveness and blessing He longs to give you.

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.

What Is Baptism All About?

Date: January 2, 2022 | Speaker:

To people outside the church, baptism seems like a strange ritual. Why dunk people under water? What does that mean, and what does it accomplish? Does getting baptized mean you’ll go to heaven? Can anyone be baptized? In this brief message we’ll answer those and other important questions by seeing what the Bible actually says about baptism.

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.

When Tyrants Rule the Land

Date: October 17, 2021 | Speaker:

The Bible says, “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; but when the wicked rule, the people groan.” During this past year we have witnessed an unprecedented number of evil leaders in our nation and around the world dismantling democracy and increasing their control over us. Sadly this is nothing new. Generations past have come under the tyrannical rule of power-hungry leaders, but when it’s all said and done, you can be sure that God will have the last word!

The Disease You Can Never Cure

Date: September 26, 2021 | Speaker:

Imagine having an incurable disease, but one day hearing that someone had finally discovered a cure. You rush to see them, but they tell you to do something that sounds ridiculous and embarrassing and humiliating. Would you do it in order to be cured? Sometimes our pride keeps us from fully obeying what God has told us to do. We’d rather do it our own way! Is pride keeping you from fully obeying God in some area?

Surrendering the Throne of Your Heart

Date: August 8, 2021 | Speaker:

Could you honestly say that you have given God full reign in every area of your heart? Is there anything that you have been trying to keep disguised and hidden from His control? The fact is, we cannot ultimately keep anything from Him because His Word will always come to pass, regardless of our attempts to limit Him in certain areas. Why not surrender everything to Him today and learn that you can trust Him with your life!

Words That Will Save Your Life

Date: May 23, 2021 | Speaker:

If a sketchy person approached you on the street one night and asked you to go with him down a dark alley, would you go? Probably not! Why is it that we recognize that kind of danger immediately, but we so often get fooled by temptation? If only we had some kind of guidebook to give us the wisdom we need to make the best choices in life. Well, we do! It’s the Book of Proverbs, and today we discover how to use it to steer us away from sin and keep us on the path of life.

Highlights From a Wasted Life

Date: February 7, 2021 | Speaker:

King Saul had it all. He was tall, handsome, popular and powerful. But while he may have looked like the perfect king on the outside, everyone soon discovered that he had no substance on the inside. His pride and lack of self-discipline caused him to ignore God’s commands and follow his own desires. Sadly, this became his downfall and led him to a life of rebellion and destruction. He should serve as a warning to all of us about the danger of disregarding God’s Word and going our own way.

Christmas: The Wonder of WHY

Date: December 20, 2020 | Speaker:

For many people, Christmas is just another holiday. It has no more significance to them than New Year’s Day or Valentine’s Day. But the fact is, Christ’s coming into the world has eternal consequences for every one of us. Our sin had forever cut us off from God and put us under His wrath, and we had no way of rescuing ourselves. Christ came to save us from our sin and free us from the judgment of God, and that’s why we celebrate Christmas.
