Sermons by John Wright
As a rabbi, Jesus consistently made it clear that following Him has consequences. Join us as we study the first part of the book of Ruth and learn about the conviction of the converted.
Over the past few months, we have seen unimaginable pain and loss in different parts of the world. It happens so often and at such a level that we can begin to normalize it in our minds as a way of reconcile it in our minds. Join us today as we read two passages of Scripture that remind us that this is not normal, but it is expected.
Today we look at John’s record of heavenly worship in Revelation 5. One day, every one of us, whether or not we’re believers, will bow and confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.
C.S. Lewis, in his book Mere Christianity, calls pride the thing “which everyone in the world loathes when they see it in someone else; and which hardly any people ever imagine they are guilty of themselves.” Join us as we examine a little about what the Bible has to say about pride, how to tell if pride is a problem for us, and what do do about pride in our own lives.
Jesus taught, “Your Father in Heaven causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.” (Mat 5:45) Victories and tragedies are a part of every person’s life no matter their belief. How do we deal with tragedy when it comes? Join us as we turn to the book of Job to learn how we can trust God through tragedy.
Everything we do is a step in our journey, not the destination. Yet many people stop moving forward because they mistake a milestone for the finish line. In this message, we read from Paul’s letter to the Philippians as he teaches how he is able to press on each day.
Life is a series of choices and consequences. The Bible is full of not just teaching the relationship between choices and consequences, but stories of men and women making both good and bad choices and the consequences that follow. Join us as we look at Psalm 1 to examine the “fork in the road” that each of us face daily.
Today we learn about a man named Daniel. His story teaches us a number of things about conviction and living our convictions publicly. We’ll never know the impact we will make until we stand in our convictions.
What does it mean that there is “no condemnation for those who are in Christ”? God didn’t miss our sin, and He hasn’t overlooked it. The hard truth is that we are guilty of sin, and that there is a punishment attached to that guilt. The grace of God transferred that punishment on to His Son, Jesus.
There are so many things in life that clamor for our attention, but Jesus patiently and calmly tells us, “All eyes on me.”
