What if? Why Not? What if I let go of worry? (Matthew 6:19-34 NIV)

Today was another wonderful day of worship at Burgin Baptist Church!  Larry Inman told his testimony about the Good News. The Burgin Baptist choir led us in worship with music as they sang, “He Knows My Name.” Pastor Carl McCray helped us explore the possibilities of letting go of worry.

What if? Why not? What if I let go of worry?  

Worry left unchecked will choke us. Worry causes health problems, keeps you from enjoying the moment, and worst of all, worry is sin – a lack of faith! So how do you learn to let go of worry? Scripture gives us a directive. Don’t worry – God’s got this!

Storm Warning: Wrapping Up What Jesus Said….

Audio of Sermon

This is our third week talking about storms of life and discussing the parable Jesus told in His Sermon the Mount about the wise and foolish builders. In the past two weeks, we learned how to be “Storm Ready” and discovered “Just the Facts” about storms. Today, we are going to wrap up what Jesus said in His Sermon on the Mount.

Are we building our lives on the rock or on the sand? It’s all about obedience. It’s there in our text. Jesus said in Matthew 7:24 (NIV), “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock..” Are we obeying what Jesus said? Are we putting it into practice? If we are, then Jesus said we are wise. When the storms come in our lives, we will be able to stand the bad weather that is certainly to come. However, if we have knowledge and don’t put it into practice, when the storms of life come, we will fall. That is what Jesus was talking about.

Storm Warning: How To Be Storm Ready – Matthew 7:24-27

Audio of Sermon

Are you ready for the storms of life? Being “storm ready” doesn’t just apply to the weather. We should be storm ready in every area of our lives – during storms of sickness, storms of sorrow, disappointment, pressure, deadlines, doubt, gossip, betrayal, finances – just to name a few. Storms can happen at work, in our family, in our churches, in our city and in our world. Storms are a part of our lives. It’s best to be prepared because storms are coming. We are all either in a storm, coming out of a storm or going into a storm. Are you ready for the unexpected? Continue reading “4/23/2017 Storm Warning: How To Be Storm Ready (Matthew 7:24-27)”
