Sermons on Christian Life

Authentic Worship

Isaiah 29:13 — “Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me…” In Isaiah chapter 29 we see the prophet coming to the people of Judah with a message of judgment, and when we consider the context,…

If They Throw Us To The Lions

Daniel 6 — Daniel’s deliverance from the lion’s den is one of the most well-known and best-loved stories in the Bible. It’s been taught in Sunday School to generations of Christian children. As we work through the narrative in this sermon, we see that Daniel’s ordeal is powerfully applicable to the times in which God’s…

Take Good Heed To Your Soul

Joshua 23:11 — “Take good heed therefore unto yourselves, that ye love the LORD your God…” In Joshua chapter 23 we have old-man Joshua’s second last address to the Children of Israel.

Leading Through The Storm

Numbers 16 — Korah’s rebellion was a full-blown crisis for Moses, for Aaron and for the whole Nation of Israel.

Supper With The Traitor

Matthew 26:19-25 & John 13:18-30 — Why did Jesus announce to His disciples that one of them would betray Him? Why did He do so when He never intended to do anything about it? What was Jesus communicating to the men sitting around the supper table that night? What was He communicating to those who would read…

Fragile & Fleeting

Psalm 90:1-12 — “So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.” In this Psalm, Moses reminds us that life is both brief and tenuous. We’re given 70 years, maybe 80, and then it’s over. When we consider this in light of eternity, it’s a not a very long time…
