Sermons on Faith (Page 7)
John 3. Dale Kuehne shows the importance of making the truths of the Apostle’s Creed personal, not simply a recitation of basic Christian doctrine.
Revelation 1, Mark 5, 2 Corinthians 2, James 2. Elder John Owen explores the calling that followers of Jesus have to take an active role in reconciling people to God, and offers some helpful ways to think about and engage with those we have the opportunity to share Jesus with.
Isaiah 55 and Matthew 6. The Lord’s Prayer challenges us to consider our needs vs. our wants, centering us in the reality that if we truly seek to live our lives for God, He promises to provide all that we need to do that.
Acts 15. In this chapter a great debate comes to a head in the Jerusalem council, do the Gentiles need to convert to Judaism to be saved? If not, then what requirements are placed on them? Dale Kuehne shares his personal list of 6 guiding points, not specific laws, that help him to pursue a life of holiness and remain centered in the mission Christ.
Acts 14. There was nothing supernatural about Paul and Barnabas. How did they heal a man who couldn’t walk, or preach boldly in the face of persecution? They lived as if God’s promises were true (because they are), and His power was made available to them as they trusted Him to accomplish His purposes and fulfill His promises.
Ephesians 3 and Hebrews 11. Guest speaker Burke Rentz encourages us to trust God for more than just the small things, and to consider what might be hindering us from walking in those greater possibilities.
Text: Mark 5. Guest speaker Gordon MacDonald digs deep into the story of the woman who was healed after secretly touching Jesus’ cloak. How many of us recognize our desperation for Jesus in all matters of life? Do we have the faith to expectantly reach for Him in our need? Are we offering this life-changing encounter with Jesus to others?
Acts 10. God uses us to answer the prayers of others, but it requires obedience on our part, even when it’s uncomfortable or dangerous. Dale Kuehne explores this idea in the Apostle Peter’s life as well as in several modern day examples.
Mark 5. Guest speaker Gordon MacDonald. Jesus opened a door in the life of a hopeless man, abandoned by everyone else. We too are called to be door openers in the lives of others.
John 10 and Acts 3. Post-Pentecost we see day after day of miracles in the Acts of the Apostles. Why do we see so little evidence of this in the American church today? Dale Kuehne offers some reasons why.
