Sermons on Miracles (Page 4)
John 14. Pastor Dale’s farewell sermon encourages us to see the world for what it is in all it’s brokenness, but also to live into the realities of the cross, pentecost and heaven which can change the world now and prepare us for the world to come.
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.
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 12. After Peter’s arrest, believers were hiding out, earnestly praying for his release. When God miraculously sets him free, they don’t believe it at first. How often do we pray for something that we don’t really believe God can do? How often do our fears cause us to hide our faith rather than share it with the desperate (and sometimes hostile) world we live in?
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.
Acts 4. Even when people witness God’s miracles, it does not guarantee they will follow Jesus.
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.
