Sermon Title: ‘Celebrating Sin’
Scripture: 2 Chronicles 7: 12-14, Psalm 90: 7-9
King David admitted “God, you know what I have done wrong; I cannot hide my guilt from you.” (Psalm 69:5) When we know we’ve sinned, but reject repentance, that’s pride induced sinning. When tempted to yield to sin we must keep God’s Word in our windshield view, not stashed in the trunk.
Sermon Title: ‘Healthy Uh-oh’s’
Scripture: John 15: 1-8
Our 4th sermon this month on ‘pride’ asks the question “Guess how many prideful applicants will be accepted into Heaven?” We’ll learn how God’s lopper helps to prepare the way for those applicants.
Sermon Title: ‘Laodicean Lessons’
Scripture: Revelation 3: 14-22
Our 3rd sermon this month on ‘pride’ takes a turn by studying one proud church, one proud King,
and one proud nation. And before we begin ‘finger-pointing’, we just may identify historical faux pas in our own lifestyle.
Sermon Title: ‘Little Toes’
Scripture: I Corinthians 12
“One of God’s specialties is to make somebodies out of nobodies.” (Henrietta Mears) Our 2nd sermon this month on ‘pride’ will examine what Paul teaches us in chapter 12 of I Corinthians. We’ll explore the importance of being a Holy Spirit-led-nobody.
Sermon Title: ‘Humble Pride’
Scripture: I Corinthians 11:27-32
Our I Corinthians ‘examination’ service preparing us for the sacraments of communion will focus on ‘pride’, the sin that God hates. We’ll identify subtle prideful symptoms disguised by our archenemy.
Sermon Title: “When First is Second”
Scripture: Daniel 6:6-10
Together we’ll study personal habits of Daniel, David, and Jesus as recorded in the scriptures, and compare them to what my mother preached to me as I was growing up. I never wanted to admit it then, but I know now she was right.
