Sermons on 2 Peter

Introduction to First Peter

This first writing of Simon Peter’s is the very tonic you and I need. Our introductory instruction will show how singularity qualified this vulnerable and effusive man is in guiding you and I through the sufferings of life. But first, what do we know about him from the Bible? We know he was a Fisherman: As He was going along by the Sea of Galilee, He saw Simon and…

The 7 Deadly Sins – Greed

Considering Greed I considered my ways and turned my feet to Your testimonies – Psalm 119:59 There are several indicators or evidences that Greed may be creeping around trying to get a grip of your disposition.   The purpose of this study is to both highlight those sour “fruit” and to offer in opposition a lesson on greed’s opposing virtue:…

The 7 Deadly Sins – Sloth

Sloth – Who, Me? No really.  Sloth is likely the last thing you might understand about yourself.   But yet Sloth is epidemic among Believers.  Sloth is a habitual disinclination to exertion, or in other words: laziness.  Sloth is putting off doing things until later.  It means not being thorough in the things you do.  Sloth is giving into yourself.  Our approach in…

Recovery, 1 of 5 – The Four Realms

Don’t let words bug you It’s tough to have a sermon series with the word “Recovery” in it.  That word conjures up images of dark alleys and seedy people living out of control; people unable to cope;  whose lives are dominated by drugs or alcohol.    Well, just take a step back.   I’ve got news for you, we are all addicts. All we like sheep…

Why Doesn’t God Hear Me?

Why do my prayers get stuck? I know it says in John 3:16 ‘”For God so LOVED the world”; I know Jeremiah wrote (31:3)  “I have loved thee with an everlasting love.” – but my prayer life does not reflect that intimacy.  Why i am not feeling it? What about that crisis i am in?  What about that job, that relationship, that difficulty, that…

Pure in Heart

The Power in Purity of Heart This then is at the heart of this, our sixth of the nine Beatitudes.  The power and life-changing potential behind this statement:  Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God.  I offer this verse from Proverbs as we travel the Jesus Path together as we consider this Beatitude. Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do…

Mercy

Mercy, Baby; Mercy A noun is a person, place or thing – and Mercy is a noun. But Christ didn’t say to work out mercy; but to be merciful.  An adjective; a word description for a verb, an action taken.   You could well term this Beatitude “Mercy in Action” it is an out flowing beatitude.  Something stemmed from a clear understanding of what underpins all…

The Meek

The Third Beatitude Welcome to Restart Church.  We continue today in our study of the Sermon on the Mount.  Today we examine “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.”  We apologize, but there is no video today. Meek Does Not Mean Weak This third beatitude is rich with meaning.  But first we must get our terms right.  No question that Christ is…

Those Who Mourn

The second Beatitude The word mourn in the Bible is very deep and anguished filled.   Check out this example taken from the time when Joseph’s brothers sold him into slavery and came in deceit to tell their father that Joseph had been killed…. So Jacob tore his clothes, and put sackcloth on his loins and mourned for his son many days. Then all his sons and all…

Indulgence – Demonic Attack on the Fruit of Self Control

We’ve traveled along together for some time now learning the lessons of spiritual warfare.   God has proclaimed nine aspects – or segments – which He termed fruit of the Spirit.  Our premise has been that Satan and his screwed-up crowd are going to peck at you, Raven-like,…
