Sermons from July 2003

John 15:11

John 15:9-27

Vintage message from our 2002-2003 radio program called “Perspective” aired July 27, 2003. Have you ever felt like there was no joy in your life? The one thing Jesus hoped to accomplish in His disciples by encouraging them to remain in Him is that His joy may be in them and that His joy may be in you. “I have told you this.” The whole reason He just laid out this vine and branch and fruit scenario is so that…
To say "I don't hear God" means that you're not reading or studying His Word whatsoever. If you have opened God's Word and read it and studied it in any way, I guarantee you, you have heard God speak to you, and you have no excuse. None.

Matthew 2:1-23

What is important to you that you can offer to Jesus? What’s valuable to you that you should be offering to Jesus? You know what? If you’re wise, you will be seeking Jesus, and if you’re wise, when you find Jesus, you will worship Him, and if you’re wise, you will, then, offer Him out of that treasure that is yours, a gift. What’s valuable to you? What can you give up for Jesus, to be that gift to Him?…
John 15:7

John 15:1-8

Vintage message from our 2002-2003 radio program called “Perspective” aired July 20, 2003. What is it that the Father is looking for? The Father is looking for fruit. Fruit that you are truly a part of the vine. If you are a part of the plant the produces fruit, then it is reasonable to assume that fruit will be produced in you… You know what? I have people ask me all the time, “How do I know that the Spirit…
Is it okay for the Holy Spirit to do a work in your life even if you don't like it?

Matthew 1:17-25

Forgiveness…this is something that I believe should be the earmark of every believer today. We are so quick today to judge one another, to condemn one another. I don’t care what the circumstances are… And righteousness dictates that we look at the circumstance, and instead of publicly humiliating and demanding the law take affect, look for ways to love and forgive… Sin separates us from God. From the time of Adam, sin has separated us from the love relationship that…
John 14:21

John 14:15-31

Vintage message from our 2002-2003 radio program called “Perspective” aired July 13, 2003. Just as Jesus had the function of being the Son that came to this earth to save you and I, you and I now have a function to represent the Father and the Son through the Spirit to the rest of the world, even in our hardships, even in those struggles and those hard times that we’ll face, we put our faith in Him. ¬†Back to verse…
But, you know what is important for us to know...is that these people [in this genealogy] represent the fulfillment of a promise made by God. Why is that important? ...God made a promise to you, and God made a promise to me, that through His Son Jesus Christ, that He would save us...God made a promise, and God fulfilled that promise.

Matthew 1:1-16

When you’re reading this genealogy, you’re reading about a lot of shady characters. The bloodline of Jesus was not perfect, which it should be very comforting to you and I that God did not look for perfection even when He was birthing His Son onto the earth. He was birthing His Son on the earth because He knew we were imperfect and in need of salvation… This [genealogy] is a proof of God’s faithfulness. That rather than God just destroying…
John 14:6

John 14:5-14

Vintage message from our 2002-2003 radio program called “Perspective” aired July 6, 2003. Chapter 14 gives us this amazing statement from Jesus directly to you and to [me], that we do not have to be troubled in heart, but that we should and could put our trust in God, also putting our trust in the Person of Jesus, because He tells them, this is for a purpose… Was Jesus only a good man and a good teacher?… Either He is…
You have a responsibility to praise the Lord. God has given you this great and awesome honor. God has put you here for a purpose, and within that purpose is found His unfailing love.

Psalms 147-150

God is always there wanting to touch us and feed us and bless us… And His pleasure isn’t in our strength or what we can do for Him. He takes no delight in that, but He delights in our knowing that He’s there and loving us and blessing us and desiring to be part of us, that we fear Him, that we look to Him. That’s where the relationship begins, and that’s where God’s love for us is poured out.…
