— Last Sunday's Sermons —
Repent and return to real repentance! We will look at this essential doctrine of repentance. What does it mean? Is it really necessary? What does it look like? I’ve already repented, so do I need to keep doing it? How do I know if my repentance is real? This is a challenging message, but the result if applied, is so sweet in the life of a Christ follower.
“What do people believe about the future? What do other religions teach about the end? What makes the Bible any different? And why should we trust it over all the other religious views on the end times? Nigel Shailer will answer all these questions this Sunday Night. Come and gain massive confidence on why you can trust the Bible’s teaching on how things end for the human race on earth.”
Paul describes God’s promises to His loyal ones. God rewards loyalty, but not disloyalty. The promises of security, motivation and comfort are yours if you are His. Paul gives a song, a verse or a poem of deep theological truth which will blow you away.
Are we good at worship? Are we worshiping the right God, for the right reasons, in the right way? Do we even know what worship is? In John 4, Jesus spoke with the Samaritan woman, and we can learn from their conversation what God expects in our worship.
We continue in 2 Timothy and look at how the farmer paints a picture of the Christian life we need to pursue.
We continue to exposit 2 Timothy 2, with Paul’s plea to Timothy to live aggressively–not only like a coach or like a soldier, but like an athlete. It will encourage your determination for Christ, your focus on Christ, and your satisfaction in Christ.
Paul commands Timothy to live and minister like a soldier. The Christian life is not passive, but aggressive. When a Christian lives like a soldier, he can live more fruitfully and more effectively for God’s glory.
Paul will instruct Timothy and you about the power to train, the procedure to train and the price to train others. All parents, disciplers, shepherds and those who care about the next generation will love this.
We are highlighting many of the distinctives of FBC and celebrating our future plans, as we celebrate God’s grace and goodness to the family of FBC.
Paul motivates Timothy with the positive impact of a courageous example and the negative impact of a cowardly example. In verses 15-18, Paul encourages Timothy to be a model that actually promotes Christ-like courage. This is encouraging truth especially for dads, disciplers, men and women.
Second Timothy 1:12-14 is Paul’s instruction to Timothy on how you can grow courageous. Paul hopes Timothy will grow confident in Christ and firmly committed to God’s Word in order to live unashamed, not embarrassed and increase in boldness over Christ, the Gospel and his ministry. You and I need this passage.
Paul challenges Timothy to stand up and shout for Christ. Are you willing to stand tall and suffer for Christ and the good news of the Gospel message? If you have ever shied away from speaking up about Christ, this will be a great encouragement.
If lukewarm means you are a non-Christian (and it does), then what does it mean when a Christian cools down and stops living hot? Paul instructs Timothy to stir up the heat and manifest the fire within in 1 Timothy 1:6-7. Learn how to be living hot by using your giftedness as a believer and living bold as a believer by trusting in God.
