Where is your focus as a Christian? Is it on earthly rewards or is it on heavenly rewards? Are you looking forward to hearing from Jesus: “Well done good and faithful servant?” Or are you focused on acquiring “blessings” and “prosperity” on earth alone? These are days when the Gospel of Jesus Christ has been twisted by some pastors for their own selfish gains.
This sermon will help you focus on what really matters as you continue to serve God.
The Bible makes it clear that spiritual power and divine favor is released when God’s children function in unity. Why is unity such a crucial factor to our wellbeing? Why did Jesus pray repeatedly in John 17 asking God the Father to protect the unity of His followers? Why does the Bible encourage us to do everything we can to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace? This sermon will cause you to examine this all important spiritual principle in a whole new light. Listen and be blessed.
What is the most distinguishing thing about a true disciple of Jesus Christ? What is the one thing that sets us apart as people who truly love God? Jesus answered this question by telling His disciples that love is the only thing that would cause people to know that we are truly His disciples. He gave us a new command to love one another just as He loves us. So, what is love and how can we truly love others? Listen and be motivated to carry out this most important command of Jesus for His followers.
The Bible tells us the story of how Joseph’s brothers so hated him that they plotted to kill him and put an end to his dreams. Reuben, his brother, preserved his life by convincing the other siblings to put Joseph in a cistern rather than kill him. Later, however, his brothers took him out of the cistern and sold him off into slavery. This wicked act, however, was the catalyst that resulted in the saving of Joseph’s entire family as well as the furthering of the divine plan of salvation. Reuben’s action, protected Joseph and the vision God had given him which had profound repercussions. This is a very deep message with interesting applications for life. Listen and become a “Good Reuben.”
Trials are not pleasant to go through but they are invaluable as character and strength building tools. Trials help us to develop perseverance which creates maturity in our lives. Until your life is tested through trials, you will never know the strength of your faith or the true power of God. Some trials can be so severe that they can even throw our faith into crisis. But God has promised to see us through every trial and every tribulation. You will be encouraged as you listen.
Have you ever been confronted with a situation when you felt like giving up and not trying any longer? Has there ever been a time in life when you felt as if your efforts will amount to nothing because the odds were stacked against you? What course of action did you take?
The truth is: At some critical junctures in life, you will be confronted with two kinds of reports: First, a bad report that says: “Everything is against you and there is simply no hope.” Or, a second report that says, “Don’t give up; there is light at the end of that long tunnel” This sermon will encourage you to believe that in spite of the challenges you face; you can accomplish your goals if you do not give up. Listen and be motivated to press on!
After the death of Moses, God asked Joshua to lead the children of Israel to inherit the Promised Land. God said to Joshua repeatedly: ”Don’t be afraid and don’t be discouraged.”
He assured Joshua of His Presence but reminded him of the need to be courageous in leading the children of Israel into their inheritance.
Question: Why did God repeatedly remind Joshua of the need to be courageous and not fearful? What would fear have done to him; and what does fear do to us? Find out as you listen to this encouraging sermon.
Do You Really Understand God’s Word?
“But he who received seed on the good ground is he who hears the word and understands it, who indeed bears fruit and produces: some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.”
These were the concluding words of Jesus when He told the much beloved parable of the Sower. Jesus was clearly making the point that our ability to bear fruit in our Christian life is directly tied to how well we understand the word of God.
So, do you desire to be fruitful? Then listen and be challenged.

Scientists tell us that when we don’t use our muscles we lose them. When we don’t use our muscles we send a message that they are not important and so the body quits supporting them with energy, which causes them to atrophy. What you do not use, you lose.
