LET’S SET THE WORLD ON FIRE FOR JESUS’ SAKE

LET’S SET THE WORLD ON FIRE FOR JESUS’ SAKE LUKE 5:27-32 Jesus, the Light of the world, has called us to be salt and light as well. Jesus so often loves and does exactly the opposite of us, loving those we would not love, recruit, or share the gospel with. As His disciples, we must follow his example and step out of the darkness of our own comfort zones and “carry the light of Jesus” to a lost and dying…

MAKING YOUR FINANCE BLESS RATHER THAN STRESS

MAKING YOUR FINANCE BLESS RATHER THAN STRESS PHILIPPIANS 4:10-20 Financial stress dominates most homes and businesses. Allegedly, the average American toils at work from January 1 to May 1 to pay his taxes to the IRS. Interest rates are rising, and inflation is soaring. Today, our focus is on Paul’s cure for financial stress. In this passage, Paul was in prison in Rome. He had learned what to do when in dire financial circumstances. Paul’s ability to be free from…

A NECESSARY REMINDER

A NECESSARY REMINDER ISAIAH 66:1-2 Deuteronomy 6:12 reminds us that we need to take care lest we forget the Lord. While we all need reminders about various things, one would think we would not forget someone as important as God! Yet how often do we respond to situations or do things without thinking about God? Perhaps by seeking our own goals, relying on our own strength, and doing what we think is best based on our opinion and understanding? Today,…

GOD IS A MERCIFUL GOD

GOD IS A MERCIFUL GOD JONAH 4 Have you ever been upset when God has bestowed a blessing on someone totally undeserving? After Jonah disobeyed God and repented, God gave Jonah a second chance, sending him to Nineveh again. He was undistracted, unafraid, and boldly proclaimed God’s message in Nineveh. The people believed God, repented, and turned from their evil and violent ways. God spared them. Yet Jonah was in misery! That was not what he wanted to happen. It…

REVIVAL IN NINEVEH

REVIVAL IN NINEVEH JONAH 3 Jonah chose to disobey God by jumping on a ship to Tarshish, going in the opposite direction of Nineveh, and ending up in the belly of a great fish. God is a God of second chances, and after the great fish regurgitated Jonah, God sent Jonah to Ninevah again. Same call, but this time Jonah chose to obey. He was undistracted, unafraid, and boldly proclaimed God’s message in Nineveh. The people believed God, repented, and…

JONAH: CHOICES, CONSEQUENCES, SECOND CHANCES

JONAH: CHOICES, CONSEQUENCES, SECOND CHANCES JONAH 2 Choices have consequences. We are free to make our choices, but we don’t get to choose the consequences of those choices. Jonah chose to disobey God by jumping on a ship to Tarshish, going in the opposite direction of Nineveh, and ending up in the belly of a great fish. Jonah did not pray during the storm, when his shipmates exposed him as a rebel, or even when they threw him overboard. But,…

WANTED: IMPERFECT MEN TO BE DEACONs

WANTED: IMPERFECT MEN TO BE DEACONS ACTS 6:1-7 The 8,000-member early church at Jerusalem had experienced a phenomenal explosion in changed lives and the longing of the newly saved to serve Jesus. Yet, the early church encountered problems that were pulling the Apostles away from their priorities of preaching, teaching, and prayer. This passage covers their solution and the solution we use today – deacons. What was the purpose of deacons, and what were their qualifications? SOURCES/ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS: Mark Copeland The…
