Sermons from April 2011
Romans 6:12-14 Though sin still lives in us, we must not live in any sin – we must fight against it. And we must know our sins so that we can fight against them.
Ephesians 4:29-32 We look at three things the Spirit does for us, and things we need to avoid so that we don’t hinder our Communion with Him.
We continue to examine the practical elements of Biblical courtship, focusing on how courtships should be conducted.
1 Peter 1:22-23 We consider something further that will help us to be useful to the Lord: we must love one another.
John 11:25-26 Do we need to be afraid of death? We do if we are not ready for it, but if we are trusting in Jesus, we do not. We consider two things: *First, why we should be afraid of death, if we are not ready, and *Second, how Jesus can take this fear away.
Psalm 2 We meditate on this Psalm and rejoice in the truths it contains, not least of which is the certain triumph of the kingdom of Christ in this world. In the light of this, it is foolish to continue to resist Jesus’ claims on our lives.
1 Corinthians 15:1 We consider the various ways in which believers are said to ‘stand’ in the New Testament.
Having defined Biblical Courtship, we focus more specifically on what it looks like in practice. We consider how one should enter into a courtship, and what steps should be taken to ensure a good relationship.
1 Thessalonians 5:18 We consider another godly characteristic that will make us more useful to the Lord: thankfulness.
Romans 8:26-27 We examine one more way in which we have communion with the Holy Spirit: He becomes in us the Spirit of supplication, and helps us to pray.
Galatians 5:22 We consider one more virtue that will make us more useful to the Lord: patience. Patience is a fruit of the Spirit and also something the Lord commands us to exhibit as His children.
1 John 2:27 As we continue to look at the communion we have with the Holy Spirit, we see how He anoints us and leads us into all truth.
