First Day of Unleavened Bread Sermon
As we prepare for the Passover in 2020 during very interesting times, consider these two thoughts and an overriding key that apply to both Passover and our daily lives.
When a Christian faces a crisis it should serve the purpose of drawing closer to God. However, a crisis should not be the only catalyst for strengthening that relationship. The Passover shows us this.
In times of confusion and distress, we understandably turn to Scripture to find direction and peace. Jesus told His disciples that they should not let their hearts be troubled – easier said than done – and then told them, “You believe in God; believe also in Me.” What did He mean by that? How does that bring us stability when the world is in turmoil? And what does that tell me about examining myself in preparation for Passover?
Being baptized is like signing a contract with God. Do you know what the terms of that contract are? If you have been baptized, what exactly did you agree to? In this sermon we will review what we promised God we would do after our baptism..
The time leading into Passover requires an intense period of self-examination according to what the Apostle Paul shared in I Corinthians 11 in order not to be guilty of the blood and body of Jesus Christ. This sermon examines ways in which to make certain we are being thorough in that process.
We often hear the term “act of God” inappropriately applied to unforeseen tragedies. But what about the acts of man, and the acts of Satan? It is critically important to understand how the acts of man and Satan have created the world’s problems, and how the true acts of God will save us.
A slogan created to promote good morale, emerging from the Second World War, can serve as a useful reminder to Christians in times of trial.
