Prayer and Fasting INTRODUCTION We know very little about personal sacrifice today. Personal sacrifice is when you have to give up something, and it may even hurt, in order to walk with God. Personal sacrifice is when you have to give up something or someone that you love very much, and it may even hurt,…

LESSON TEN: MEDITATION AND FASTING We are much like the African cheetah that must run down its prey to eat. It is well suited for the task, as it can run at speeds of 70 miles per hour. The cheetah has only one problem, however, in that it has a disproportionately small heart, which causes it to tire…
The Sermon on the Mount
Dr. Mark A. Barber • Sermon • • 36 views
In the previous verses of the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus’ emphasis on how the Scribes and Pharisees had failed to teach the whole and intended council of God. They had twisted the Scripture and replaced the righteousness of God with their own standards of righteousness. We saw that they clearly had seen…

God want us to be the best church we can possibly be. How can we get there? 1. Be saved by the Lord (vs. 1). 2. Be seeking the Lord (vs. 2). 3. Be separated for the Lord (vs. 2-4). 4. Be serving the Lord (vs. 5).

Zach McAnulty • Heartland Christian Family Church • Sermon • • 6 views • 44:22
When we carry the weight of guilt, sin, and shame with us then it is hard to accomplish what God has put on your heart. Zach McAnulty shares out of Psalm 32 how David's expression of confession of sin is actually the freedom that you need to run the race set before you. We pray that you are impacted by this message of God's INCREDIBLE FORGIVENESS!
In what ways did Jesus point out the hypocrisies of man? What are different motives we can have for doing things? What is our eye and mind focused on?
T. Campbell • Growing Faith Fellowship • Sermon • • 3 views • 57:15
Fasting is not important, it is essential in the life of the believer. In order for us to lay hold of God's best for our lives, we must be in a constant state of renewing our mind through the word. Fasting helps prepare our hearts to receive what God has in store for us.
“Image is everything” or so we are told by our society. Consequently, we have an over-weight society desperately concerned about losing weight. People undergo all sorts of procedures to make themselves look younger because they know that appearance is a factor in getting hired for a job, and how you…
