Sermons from May 2003

John 12:7

John 12:1-19

Vintage message from our 2002-2003 radio program called “Perspective” aired May 25, 2003. There are two things that we have to consider. First and foremost, God is powerful. God can do all things. God can sustain us through all things. The second is that we need to know His Word. We need to know what His Word says; why He gave it to us; how He gave it to us… Are you looking for ministry? Are you looking for something…
Where do you put your hope? Does God's Word sit on a shelf collecting dust? Or is His Word what you're longing for, daily bringing it out to feed on it, to grow by it, to understand Him?

Psalms 129-131

You know what? The world’s going to hurt you. People are going to hurt you. Friends are going to hurt you. But the Lord is righteous, and the Lord’s love will cut you free from the bondage of the pain that comes from there — wherever there is, whatever circumstance you found yourself in that brought the pain, if you’ll trust the Lord, give your life into His hands, His righteousness frees from those bonds. You know what? I don’t…
John 11:40

John 11:38-57

Vintage message from our 2002-2003 radio program called “Perspective” aired May 18, 2003. Did you ever wonder Who Jesus truly was? Has it been a question in your mind? Is He just a good teacher? A good man? Someone Who did good things on this earth? He is far more than that, and He claimed to be far more than just good. In fact…Jesus said…”I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though…
God never said we would not face hardship in our life. He just asked us to trust Him through those hard times.

Psalms 124-128

The Lord is on our side. We need to understand what the Lord does for us, how the Lord blesses us, the involvement that He has in our life, and then we need to say it. If the Lord was not on my side, I can imagine what my life would be! We, who are sitting here this morning, are blessed abundantly, and we need to let people know that. Let the church say, “If the Lord had not been…
John 11:26

John 11:17-37

Vintage message from our 2002-2003 radio program called “Perspective” aired May 11, 2003. We, so often, will call on God. We will approach Jesus. We will use the name of Jesus almost as an incantation for magic, thinking that somehow, because we call on Him, He has to give us the thing that we desire, that we conjure up for our own flesh’s pleasure… I am speaking to those of you who have the Holy Spirit indwelling you, who have…
But in everything that He allows in our lives, it is to bring us to a place of looking to Him, praying to Him, seeking Him for mercy, seeking Him for His involvement in our life.

Psalms 120-123

There’s this separation that happens between you and God when you are disobeying Him, and oftentimes He, then, allows for you to be held captive by that separation. It’s an enemy. Separation is an enemy to you when that separation causes you to be away from God Who created you, God Who loves you, God Who desires to be the major part of your life. He’s not going to take your life away from you. It’s not like when you…
It's God's Word that brings us through the hardship... That's where we need to be. Spending time in God's Word. Not trying to make it in our own strength.

Psalms 119

One of the amazing things about God, He didn’t leave it to us to figure out Who He was by hearing the little whispers in the night, and so often we find the world falling into heresy because people turn to those little whispers in the night, thinking that God is speaking to them, but we have God’s Word in writing that when you hear a whisper, you match it to what’s here. And if it doesn’t match up, guess…
