Message: God’s Process

All problems come from a 3-letter word, “sin.” John 3:16 is God’s answer to our sin problem. God has a wonderful plan for the lives His followers. Philippians 1:6 tells us that “He who has begun a good work in you will complete it.” God is in the process of making every follower of Jesus into a masterpiece. Like a silversmith refines silver by removing the impurities or dross (Proverbs 25:4-5), God is in the process of refining His followers by removing the impurities or sin from our lives (Isaiah 1:25). God will refine us. He will never let us remain the same. He will keep refining us until we become a masterpiece. It’s difficult (Proverbs 3:12) but God’s process will conform us to the likeness of His Son, and Jesus will be reflected in our lives (Romans 8:29). Maybe you haven’t trusted Jesus as your Savior. God loves you and He wants you to experience His very best. Are you ready to trust today?

“Remove the dross from the silver,
    and a silversmith can produce a vessel;
remove wicked officials from the king’s presence,
    and his throne will be established through righteousness.”

Proverbs 25:4-5

Message: Freedom (Deuteronomy 8:10-14)

There are many things that might be legal but are not moral or biblical. We call sin everything but what it truly is. We have relabeled everything. What God calls murder, we call abortion. What God calls drunkenness, we call alcoholism. What God calls perversion, we call an alternate lifestyle. What God calls pornography, we call entertainment. Has God changed? No. You can be set free from the bondage of sin. There is freedom found in Jesus Christ. Are you in Christ? The good news is that you can be today.

Sermon: The World’s Greatest Problem (Ephesians 2:1-3)

What is the world’s greatest problem? The answer is sin. Nobody wants to talk about sin. It’s an unpopular subject. However; just because we don’t talk about it, doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. The human race is sinful. No one is immune, no one is exempt, no one is innocent. Romans 3:10 (NIV) tells us “There is no one righteous, not even one..” Because of sin, we are in big trouble…. unless somebody intervenes!

“…I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.” – Jesus

Matthew 9:13 (NIV)

There is good news! God intervened. He provided a divine cure for our sin. He sent his Son. Jesus tells us in Matthew 9:13, “…I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.” Jesus Christ is the only one who can take away our sin. Do you understand the bad news – the facts about sin, the nature of sin, the consequences sin? Are you ready to receive God’s gift of forgiveness and have His leadership in your life?
