Sermons on Faith
Hebrews 11. What is faith? What does faith look like? The writer of Hebrews points us to God’s examples of lived out faith because we to have been called to live by faith.
Matthew 5:40-42 Continuing in the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus teaches what our love is to look like.
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 2:1-12 Wise men from the east seek the one who has been born king of the Jews.
Colossians 2:12 How is the spiritual circumcision of verse 11 carried out? We have been buried with Him in baptism. What does this mean?
Col. 1:3-8 God is the author of our faith, He causes His people to be born again to a living hope, and it is the message of the gospel, holding out the promise of hope that is the cause of our faith. Salvation from start to finish is of the Lord!
Galatians 3:23-29 If the law doesn’t save because that was never its purpose, then how is a man saved? Paul shows in his defense of justification by faith alone that it is by faith, it has always been by faith, and if any is ever saved it will always be by faith. It doesn’t matter who you are, faith is the only way to be right before the Lord.
Galatians 3:1-5 Paul turns in this letter to bring correction to the believers in the churches in the Galatian region for drifting into believing a message of error. They have been bewitched by a false gospel, and have fallen for its lies about ho a man is saved. Paul points to their own experience as his first line of defense in defending the gospel that he set before them in chapter 2, a gospel of justification by faith apart from…
Galatians 2:16 How can a man be right before the Lord? Paul rebukes Peter for falling back into thinking that adherence to the ceremonial law somehow justifies him before the Lord, and in one of the clearest statements in the New Testament, Paul stresses that justification is not in any way by works of the law, but by faith in Jesus Christ.
Galatians 4:4-5. The Christian message is often rejected as fairy-tale by people who are ignorant to the fact that our faith rests not on the imagination of men like all other earthly religions, Christianity rests on historical fact. Christ’s birth, His life, His death, and His resurrection are all events based in history, and that history supports the truth the Bible presents.
