He Has Filled Us With Grace, Therefore Let Us Ask For More

Tuesday July 16, 2019 Text: Colossians 1:1-14 Speaker: Festival: Passages: Colossians 1:1-14

In the first part of our sermon text, Paul lists all the blessings which God has given to the Colossians. All of these things He has given to you too. Paul then prays with boldness that God would grant the Colossians even more grace, to learn to know and walk with Him even better than they have been. A large part of this daily walk with God is patient endurance in suffering. It is often through this same suffering that we grow even more in our faith. Therefore we press on for the sake of all that we are and have from God, especially the redemption of our sins in Christ Jesus.

Satan trades one man for two thousand pigs but that one man is worth far more than even six thousand pigs. He is worth more to Jesus than His own life.

The Only Name of Salvation

Monday June 17, 2019 Text: John 8:48-59 Speaker: Festival: Tags: / / / / / Passages: John 8:48-59
