Sermons on Mercy
Matthew 8:1-4 Jesus miracles attest to His identity. Here in Matthew 8-9 Jesus works 9 miracles, beginning with the healing of a man with leprosy.
Matthew 5:7 Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy. Do we earn our salvation by our acts of mercy? Is the change brought about in us by our justification going to one day be examined to see if we are truly saved and inheritors of eternal life?
Colossians 3:12-15 IN keeping with the picture of the garments the believer is to put off or put away, Paul here instructs Christians what to then put on in p0lace of those sinful things. Compassion, kindness, mercy, gentleness, patience, and above all love.
Galatians 3:19-22 Why, if we are saved by grace, and God had already established His promise to save the children of faith, di God then go and add the law? Surely he changed his mind, right? He decided to add the law because His plan changed, right? Paul answers in exceptionally clear terms. No! The law was never given as a means of giving life. The law has a wholly other purpose. It is to reveal and even increase transgression.
Luke 23:35-43 The crowd has multiple responses to Jesus on the cross from curiosity to mocking, but of all those present to see Jesus on the cross, we see one man saved.
Hebrews 12:18-29 God has only made two covenants with man. The covenant of law, and that of grace. One leads to death, and one to life. Which one are you under? (sermon itself begins at 19:22 mark)
Luke 19:1-10 Jesus enters Jericho to meet a man God has planned for a long time to save. Jesus is the seeker, and He finds all He goes looking for and saves each and every one of them. He has to be, or none would ever be saved.
Luke 18:35-43 A blind man calls out to Jesus for mercy, and receives far more than he expected!
Luke 18:15-17 People bring their children to Jesus to have Him bless them, and Jesus uses this to continue teach on the topic of who enters the kingdom of God.
