Living Faith

Sermon given at Casey White Oak Church of God on 09/22/19.

The world is watching and wants to know if we, as Christians, can authentically live out our faith. They are quick to point out our hypocrisy and the abundance of media and social media makes it very easy to spin doctor our words and actions to point out that hypocrisy.

In light of this, knowing we are sinners in need of a savior, flawed people trying to serve a perfect God, how can we live as salt, light, and leaven to the glory of our God?

Have faith, do good, show love, and do the next right thing!

Listen to see how this plays out in our Christian walk.

Savior and Lord

The greatest aspects of our relationship with Jesus are Jesus as Savior and Jesus as Lord. But, spoiler alert, if he isn’t both in our lives, we won’t find all the joy, peace, and contentment that God has in store for us.It’s time to choose a new master!

Bearing Fruit

Last message in our series, Power for Living, “Bearing Fruit” focuses on the fruit of the Spirit in Galatians 5.

‘But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

If we live by the Spirit, let us also behave in accordance with the Spirit.’

Galatians 5:22-23,25,25

Hotline To Heaven

Part three of our series, Power For Living, we focus on our Hotline to Heaven, the indwelling Holy Spirit and how he helps us in the second most important area of our entire Christian walk, PRAYER…

First, of course, being our salvation itself… Once we start a relationship with God, it is through prayer that we are able to build that relationship into a vibrant faith.

Holy Spirit helps us, even when we have no idea what to pray, he is completely in tune with the will of the Father, because he is God within us.

‘In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness, for we do not know how we should pray, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with inexpressible groanings. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes on behalf of the saints according to God’s will.’ Romans 8:26-27
