Sermons by Pastor Steve Sanchez (Page 2)
This message is about getting closer to God in a serious way– in less than 30 minutes to boot! I learned a lot through this study, mostly about how I have not necessarily been fasting to the glory of God in the past.
John Wesley said, “Prayer is where the action is.” This is an informative and fun teaching from Matthew 6 that will encourage you to keep praying and not give up! Never give up! Never, never, never give up praying! Corrie ten Boom: “Don’t pray when you feel like it. Have an appointment with the Lord and keep it. A person is powerful on their knees.”
What if, after the election, the Biden/Harris administration makes Christianity illegal? What if our entire country loses the freedoms we’ve enjoyed for almost 250 years? What if our country as we know it simply goes away? Will you still stand as a believer in Jesus? This is my disturbing political sermon from last Sunday.
There’s a lot that can rob our joy: From the coronavirus to the still-occurring riots and unrest in our country. There’s an ever-present threat to our country, the media lies daily, there’s still a mask mandate, and to make matters worse, a fly landed on our Vice President’s head!
This is the standard complaint from those who don’t go to church? Do they have a valid reason? Or, could it be that they are the biggest hypocrites of all?
Why are Christians to love our enemies? Do good to those who hate us? Bless those who curse us? Pray for those who persecute us? Two reasons.
Why should we love our enemies when the “right” thing to do is hate them?
This is radical Christianity…and it is impossible to do unless you are in regular fellowship with the Lord. Nevertheless, every authentic believer is called to not to bear a grudge, nor to be spiteful, vengeful, retaliatory or defensive.
In this shocking message, Jesus teaches how to swear and curse God’s way. (Not for the faint of heart or prudish.)
