Sermons on righteousness
Romans 1:17, Romans 3:9-30 What is faith? What does it look like to “live by Faith”. Jesus has been raised, the end has been proven to us, faith dictates we live for that end trusting in God to bring about what God has declared He will bring about.
Matthew 5:6 What is hungering for Righteousness? How do I know if this is describing my life?
Colossians 3:11-12 We revisit the topic of the “old man” and the “new man” and what this means that the Old Man is dead. How is it then, if the old man is dead that I still struggle with sin? We also examine verses 11-12 which speak of unity within the fellowship of believers and who we are as believers.
Galatians 1:10-15 Paul addresses the challenge false teachers have presented to his authority to preach the gospel by laying out his biography. Paul is a servant of Christ, as it is Christ Himself who revealed the gospel to Paul.
Luke 18:9-14 Jesus speaks a parable to those who trust in themselves that they are righteous. The world is full of all kinds of religion seeking to answer our question, but the Lord shows that there is one way to be right with God, and it is not by our own merit.
Luke 16:14-18 The Pharisees listening to Jesus teaching on a godly attitude toward money, ridicule Him, and Luke tells us it is because these men are lovers of money, who seek to justify themselves before God and men.
Faith is the means though which our salvation is applied to our lives. But what is faith? How does it come? What does it accomplish in us?
Philippians 2:5-11 So often the world love the Jesus of the manger but takes Him no further than that baby. But what did He come for? In Philippians 2 we see that Jesus is very special.
Luke 6:43-49. What does the fruit in your life look like? Is it good fruit? Jesus teaching in the Sermon on the Mount consistently paints the picture of two men: The blessed and the cursed. In today’s passage Jesus speaks of the fruit of a man’s life as evidence of which one of those categories he belongs in.
Luke 6:1-11. The rules and regulations of the Pharisees for proper observance of the Sabbath were burdensome to Jews, and only a self-righteous man could not see the impossibility of actually keeping each detail. Jesus uses the Sabbath to teach that God is concerned with the heart, not the externals of a man.
