Sermons on God's Will (Page 4)
Pastor Dale’s Easter message wraps up our series on the Lord’s Prayer, highlighting the fact that our prayer to be delivered from evil is answered in Jesus’ victory at the resurrection.
James 1 and Matthew 5. Sometimes it’s difficult to ask for God’s will to be done because we can’t see the whole picture and we are not in control. But if we realize that God’s will will be done, one way or another, we can release everything to God and just say “It is well with my soul.” God is the one thing that never changes in both good and bad weather.
Mathew 13. Dale Kuehne explores Jesus’ parables about the kingdom of God and what it looks like for us to truly pray and live in response to the phrase “Your kingdom come.” Each week this sermon series includes the display of banners based on the Lord’s Prayer, painted by Dr. Kuehne’s daughter Leah. You can see each week’s banner on this post or see the whole collection by clicking here.
Luke 2, 14, 17, 19. Guest speaker Vicki Kardos speaks about Jesus’ acts of compassion and mercy towards the poor, unclean, “sinners” and socially outcast. As followers of Jesus we are called to the same mission and must beware of neglecting or shutting people out because of our judgements and lack of compassion.
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.
Acts 9. Dale Kuehne brings us back to Acts this week with the conversion of Saul. Sometimes God chooses the most unlikely people to join His kingdom, sometimes the church questions that choice.
Acts 8. Dale Kuehne identifies some of the early church’s “walls” that God broke down in order to spread the gospel beyond Jerusalem. What are the barriers that prevent us from making disciples of all nations? What walls are getting in the way of our intimacy with and obedience to God?
Acts 7. Dale Kuehne asks us to consider what our fears are. Do they keep us from obeying God? Stephen was willing die for the cause of Christ. Are we willing to overcome our fears and trust God, or do we turn away from Him as soon as things don’t go our way?
Acts 5. Dale Kuehne challenges us to recognize that our story lines are inadequate. We will miss what God is doing and what He is calling us to if we don’t open our eyes to the greater story line He is writing.
