Sunday Morning Worship | Carl McCray, Pastor

Sermon: It’s time for change. If not now, when?

Everyone has a choice to make today…

  1. You can choose to live for yourself, or
  2. You can choose to die to self and live for Jesus.

Everyone is in one of these two camps.

It's time for change!The word “die” is not negative here! Jesus speaks about this in John 12:2-25 (NIV), “Jesus replied, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds. Anyone who loves their life will lose it, while anyone who hates their life in this world will keep it for eternal life.” Just like a grain of wheat must die in order to bear many fruit, we must die to ourselves and live for Jesus in order to spread the Gospel and bear fruit for His kingdom.

How the Lord Comforts His People 

Scripture: John 14

Carl McCray, Pastor

Do you really believe Jesus is with you?  We are all a little like Doubting Thomas, aren’t we? Remember, Thomas was the disciple who doubted Jesus was raised from the dead.  In John 20:25, Thomas tells the other disciples, “Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.”  We know how it ends.  Thomas saw Jesus, the nail marks and the would in his side.  Jesus tells us all in John 20:29, “…blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”  Jesus will never leave you nor forsake you.”. 
Listen as Brother Carl teaches how the Lord comforts his people.  Receive comfort from:
  1. His Presence – John 14:1
  2. His Promises – John 14:2
  3. His Person – John 14:6

Sermon: It’s Just Crazy – God’s Love (John 15:13)

Jesus – “Greater love has no one than this,
that he lay down his life for his friends.” John 15:13

  When you think about sacrifice, really and truly, there are no stronger words than what Jesus said in John 15:13.  But Jesus didn’t just say that, He did that. It wasn’t empty words. It was something that He did just for us. That contagious story – the Gospel – changes lives when it is shared. If you know Christ as your Savior, your life has been changed. The Gospel is God’s redeeming plan for the world, and we are supposed to share it with others. So how can we share it with our friends in a very contagious way?

If we are going to share the Gospel, we need to:

  1. Know about God
  2. Know about UsRomans 6:23, Romans 3:23
  3. Know about Jesus1 Peter 3:18
  4. Know about YouMatthew 7:22-23

Jesus Christ is the only way for anyone to be saved. There is nothing we can do to merit or earn salvation. The good news is that Jesus solved our dilemma. He voluntarily took upon Himself the punishment that we deserve for our sins. Jesus died as a substitute for us. His gift to us is forgiveness and salvation. It’s up to you to decide what to do with Jesus’ gift. His gift is not automatically applied. Each person must respond. Do you know Jesus? Have you asked Jesus to be your Forgiver and Leader? Be certain today! Eternity is a long time to be wrong.
