Sermons on Satan
Sermon text: 2 Corinthians 12:7-10 Pastor Josh Gabbard discusses how God uses trials and suffering to grow us.
Things We (Should) Know
Sermon text: 1 John 5:18-20 At the very end of his first epistle, the aged apostle John lists some basic truths. He prefaces each with the phrase “we know.” These facts relate to how sin affects believers, the difference between those how follow Christ and those who don’t, and how we have been given spiritual understanding. Internalizing these can help us to better deal with the world around us and put our reliance on Jesus.
Where It All Started
Sermon text: Genesis 3:1-24 Mankind’s history with sin began in the garden of Eden. Everything God created was good, including Adam and Eve. They had the best of everything. God had set them up in paradise. But the serpent convinced Eve that God was holding out on her and her husband. She fell for his scheme and disobeyed God. Adam, though, was not deceived. He simply succumbed to temptation and rebelled as well.
Sermon text: Luke 4:1-13 Every believer faces temptation. Jesus did, and we should expect to as well. We can learn a lot about how to deal with temptation from how Jesus handled it. The core of His success was the filling of the Holy Spirit and the power of God’s Word.
Satan Isn’t Staying at Home (1 Peter 5:8-9)
We may be abiding by the directives to keep our distance and stay at home, but Satan isn’t. He’s still using whatever and whoever he can to create havoc in this world. But we don’t have to sit idly by and let him disrupt our lives. Peter makes it clear in the focal passage for today that Jesus Christ has and always will have the upper hand.
