Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday morning’s sermon, “The Two Questions” based on Exodus 2:11-15:

  • When faced with temptation, we can ask ourselves two questions to help us work through it.
  • The first question is, “Am I willing for others to see me do this?”
  • The second is, “Am I going to have to cover this up after I finish?”
  • It is easier to resist the first desire than to satisfy all that follow.
  • What we do when no one is looking tells us a lot about our character.
  • We should “resist the devil”.
  • We should “flee immorality”.

Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday morning’s sermon, “Be Holy” based on I Peter 1:13-16:

  • Holiness is NOT a list of do’s and don’ts.  That is religion.  That is legalism.
  • Holiness IS conforming to the character of God and being obedient to the will of God.
  • Holiness is a commitment to a changed life.
  • Holiness is being in the Word and talking back to God through prayer.
  • Holiness is an attitude.

Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday morning’s sermon, “We Are Called to Faithfulness”, based on Mark 4:26-32.

  • God depends on us to sow the seed of the Gospel. (evangelism, missions)
  • While we are responsible for sowing the Gospel, it is God who causes growth (salvation)
  • After the growth (salvation) has begun, we are responsible to aide that growth (discipleship)
  • It isn’t the “Great Suggestion”; it is the “Great Commission”.
  • We are called to be fishers of men, not keepers of aquariums.
  • We are called to be faithful to God’s mission, that is, the ministry of reconciliation.

Here are some “sound bites” from yesterday morning’s sermon, “The Unforgivable Sin” based on Matthew 12:22-32,

  • God will forgive every sin, except one.
  • Many people are confused about what that one sin is.
  • People think it might be a secret abortion, murder, abuse, or something else.
  • Jesus explains that the unforgivable sin is rejecting the Holy Spirit’s conviction of your sin and of the forgiveness through Jesus.
  • All other sins can be forgiven.
  • If you deny Jesus, it won’t be forgiven.

You can listen to the sermon here, or by clicking on the audio player below.

Sunday evening’s sermon, “Lay Aside the Old Self” based on Ephesians 4:17-24 is available to listen to here or by clicking on the audio player below.

Sunday’s Coming!

Posted by Rick on April 17, 2008

Revival!

I hope that just the mention of the word brings an air of excitement to you!  I am waiting with anticipation for the Lord to bring revival to Immanuel Southern Baptist Church.  It isn’t just an event on the calendar; it is a fresh filling of the Holy Spirit!  It is a new work of God in our lives!

Won’t you join us Sunday and experience spiritual revival?  Bro Bob Shoemake will be our speaker and Bro Martin Whipple will be our worship leader.  Don’t forget our free barbeque chicken dinner Saturday evening at 6 pm.  Be sure to invite your family, friends, and neighbors!

Sunday will also be a special time as we start our revival service with the baptism of Ken Burgett.  Come and be a witness to his obedience to Christ’s command.

Be praying for our church, the revival leaders and for each other as begin this exciting journey together.
