Sermon Notes-8:30 Service

“The Question That Will Change Your Life”

Matthew 16:13-20

 

 

1. There are many people who say they are Christians but they live

       as functional atheists.

 

2. What does it mean to say that Jesus Christ is the Messiah-the Son

       of the Living God?

Sermon Notes-9:30 & 10 :45 Service

“The Christian Faith”

Mark 4: 35-41

 

What has happened to our Christian Faith?

 

1. If we find that we have lost our faith it could be because sometimes we rate the seen above the unseen.

 

2. Another thing that can weaken our faith is to believe or focus on the negative rather than the positive.

 

3. Another thing that has the potential of harming our Christian faith is that sometimes we look at a part of our faith and call it the whole of our faith.

 
 
 
 
 

 

Prayer

Sunday, August 10, 2014, our sermon topic was "Prayer." The following observations concerning prayer interested me and I wanted to share them with you:

George Buttrick, in his book entitled Prayer says this: "Prayer is either the primary fact of the religious life or it is the world’s worst delusion."

Nest, Gaston Foote, who was for many years pastor of First United Methodist church in Fort Worth, Texas, once said: " The heart of the Christian faith is the prayer life. The more we seek

fellowship with God through prayer, the more Christ like we become."

The great saints, without exception, have been persons who spent hours and hours in prayer."

Also, Dr. Alexis Carrel, who was a physician, scientist, author, and Nobel Prize winner, wrote these words:

"Prayer is the most powerful form of energy that we can generate. Its results mean increased buoyancy, greater intellectual vigor, moral stamina, and a deeper understanding of human relationships. Prayer is indispensable to the fullest development of personality. Only in prayer do we achieve that complete

harmonious assembly of mind, body and spirit which gives the frail human need its unshakeable strength."

God Bless You and Keep Praying!

Your Pastor and Friend,
