Reviewing the account of David and Bathsheba we see that God is a holy God and hates sin, that He also loves to forgive but that we still need to turn to Him in repentance. This is a hard-hitting sermon which challenges our modern complacency to the idea of sin.
Carrying on with the story of David and Goliath, we review what David was putting his faith in – namely the name of God and that God would fight for him and also we see the importance of declaring God’s name and victory out loud.
Joshua was a man who saw life through God’s perspective, looking at the possibilities not the hindrances, even in his old age. The Biblical account reflects this as the historical accounts point to God and God’s activity, we could do well follow such a lifestyle example.
This sermon compares ceremonial purity, moral purity and purity of the heart. We are blessed when our our hearts are purified, and this enables us to see God right now but one day we will see Him face to face. The important thing is that God is looking at our hearts.
When God shows us we are destitute before Him we are blessed, but this is only a start. Jesus tells us we are blessed when our sin bothers us enough to change and we experience the joy of complete forgiveness. Sin is awful but God’s forgiveness in Jesus is too wonderful for words.
This series delves into perhaps Jesus’ most famous sermon – the Sermon on the Mount. It is all about a totally different way of living that only God can work in our hearts. First step is to realise the blessing of being destitute before God.
What sets your priorities? Sometimes they are forced upon us, but there are many times when we can choose our priorities. Using Haggai 1 and 1 Samuel 30 this sermon challenges us to examine our priorities in a year of great opportunity for the gospel in Blackpool.
This sermon focuses on David and how he took victory from defeat, when it seemed he had lost everything and everything came against him.
From the first few verses from the Book of Ruth we see that people made wrong decisions that determined their destiny. Are you at a point of making a decision that might take you away from God’s perfect place of provision. Have a listen before you make that decision.
Tonight’s sermon focuses on why YOU are here, either at Church or on our website, and emphasises that we need to ‘raise our bar’ as Christians, because we are Christians for life, not just for Sunday.
