When Jesus told Peter to cast his nets in the deep water after Peter had fished all night without success, he did not see the need. Even so, Peter said, "Nevertheless, at Thy word I will." God's word will guide us through life to eternal life if we will allow it to. But we must always have the attitude that Peter had and say by our actions and choices, "At Thy word I will." We invite you to listen to a short sermon about God's word that emphasizes this need in our life. It is titled God's Word and is available on our sermons page and for a time on our home page.
For We All Stumble
The Bible teaches us that all have sinned and that all stumble. We will fail along the way, and sometimes our failures will involve sin. Satan wants to defeat us, and the times when we have failed are times of vulnerability. How do we deal with failure? We invite you to listen to a short sermon on that topic titled, For We All Sin. It is available on our sermon page and will be linked on our home page for a while too.
2 Corinthians 13:5: "Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you are disqualified." The apostle planned to travel to Corinth a third time. He was planning to deal with those who were walking disorderly. Each accusation would be validated at the mouth of two or three witnesses. But he writes to them before he goes there again and calls on them to examine themselves. We should all be able to test ourselves to see if we are genuinely faith or if we are disqualifying ourselves by our behavior, what the older translations call reprobate or one who is not approved or does not stand the test. We invite you to listen to a short sermon about this topic on our sermons page titled, "Self-Examination." It will also be available on our home page for a time.
