Sermons from April 2009

Spiritual Hunger

Matthew 5:6 We consider the difference between true and false grace in terms of the sense of hunger for spiritual things that it produces in true believers.

An Outpouring of the Spirit

Jeremiah 2:1-3 Many of the second generation Israelites saw the Messiah through faith, trusted in Him and were saved. Before the Lord brought this generation into the land, at the time He established the Jewish church, He poured His Spirit out on them.

A Balanced Christian Life

Ephesians 4:17-32 This evening, we see one more way grace transforms the life of believers into the likeness of Christ: by producing in them a balanced holiness, a symmetrical spirituality.

Three Prophecies

Numbers 24:17-19; Deuteronomy 18:18-19; Deuteronomy 32:21 We consider a prophecy of Balaam and two of Moses that further revealed who the Messiah would be, but also how God’s people would react to Him.

A Tender Heart

Isaiah 66:2 In this message, we continue our consideration of the genuine marks of grace, the righteous affections that are only produced in a true believer by the work of the Holy Spirit.

Hope in the Resurrection

1 Peter 1:3-5 How has God provided the basis for living hope? Peter tells us that it is through the resurrection of Christ. But He also shows us Who this Christ is, so we may not believe in the wrong Jesus.

Transformed Into Christ’s Image, Part 2

Matthew 18:21-35 This evening we continue to examine the marks of grace by considering the three remaining Christ-like attributes that spiritual knowledge will produce in our souls if we are true children of God: forgiveness, love and mercy.

Preservation in the Wilderness

Deuteronomy 8:1-6 We consider another miracle the Lord did to advance His work of redemption: that of His sustaining His people in the wilderness for forty years.
