Sermons on Discipleship

Finishing Well (1 Peter 4:7-11)

Time is short. Jesus could return tomorrow. If not, we’re still not guaranteed tomorrow. But what if you live another fifty years? Time is still short from an eternal standpoint. We need to be tuned into God’s priorities. We need to align our prayers with His kingdom. And then we need to pour our lives into others.

Crabgrass in the Lawn of Life

Sin can destroy every aspect of your life. But Jesus’ finished work on the cross is greater than the power of sin. He is able save you and cleanse you of all unrighteousness. But you have to ask Him.

On Call (2 Timothy 4:1-5)

We never know when the Lord will lead us to talk with someone about Him. It may with an individual who is searching for answers, or someone who thinks they know everything. He could want to us to correct an erring believer or witness to an unbeliever. Because we cannot know when those opportunities will come, we need to be ready all the time.

Prayer First (1 Timothy 2:1-4)

In order to be in tune with God’s will, believers need to pray. It’s really that simple. But prayer isn’t simple. It’s more than just something to do at mealtime or before bed. It needs to be kingdom focused. That’s what Paul describes in today’s text. Christians need to pray for others, but especially for our leaders. And the goal of our prayers is to see those we pray for come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.

The Thin Line of Faith (Joshua 2:15-24)

In the second week of our look at Rahab, the focus is on the clarity of the gospel message. The spies gave Rahab very specific instructions on what she must do to survive the conquest of Jericho. If she followed their directives, she would survive. If not, they would not be responsible for her demise. Similarly, when the Holy Spirit presents the opportunity to witness to a lost person, we need to present the plan of salvation in a clear,…

They Know (Joshua 2:1-14)

Chapter 2 of Joshua focuses on a harlot named Rahab. God would use this woman greatly, but she is introduced in Scripture as a frightened pagan. It’s probably reasonable to say that just about every Christian has a few “Rahabs” in their life. And you can be fairly certain they know a lot more about us than we realize.

What God Expects of Us (2 Corinthians 5:14-17)

Christians are new in Jesus Christ. Old habits and ways of living should be in the past. What should the new life in Christ look like? Pastor Chuck delves into what God expects of those who call on Jesus as Savior and Lord.

It Starts with the Heart (Mark 14:3-9)

Jesus said that the act of worship recorded in the focal passage would be spoken of wherever the gospel is preached. That’s a very strong statement, which Jesus certainly didn’t make lightly. But it isn’t what was done that captured our Lord’s attention. It was what motivated the action that made the difference. And it’s this motivation that should challenge every follower of Christ.

Hang In There! (Isaiah 35:3-4)

With everything coming at you fairly furiously these days, it’s not hard to get worn out. But even in the midst of your fatigue, you can have hope. Regardless of what’s going on in the world, God’s plan will still come to fruition. Both the Old and New Testament bear this out.
