Sermons on Spiritual Growth

Overcoming Culture

The one thing we always have to take into account when dealing with people is the culture through which they see the world. Thankfully, there are only two cultures we need to deal with…

Overcoming Temptation

The most common response to temptation is to run, and that isn’t always a bad thing! However, sometimes we won’t be able to run, we have to face temptation. When we learn to respond properly, we can overcome it!

Don’t Quit

The process of changing, especially as it concerns our spiritual growth, is often difficult. It can, at times, seem like it is harder than something we can bear. It can be tempting to quit. However, we should never quit…

Risk

As we continue our look at spiritual growth we have been confronted with the need for courage, and now we have to look at how that courage is put into use, by taking a risk.

Courage

As Christians, we are called to grow. By definition, growth requires change. Change is never easy, and will always require courage. Thankfully, we have a source for the courage we need.

Prayer

What should our prayer sound like when we come to the realization that our best laid plans have gone completely sideways and we need to seek forgiveness? We get to “listen” to Jonah’s prayer when he finds himself in this position.

Call to Denial

One thing most American Christians are guilty of is being self-indulgent. We want the music, lighting, and sermon our way. We want air conditioning and heat for a comfortable worship experience, and we want cushions on our pews or chairs. Are any of these things necessary for the gospel? Do we need to practice a little self-denial?
