Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday morning’s message, “The Christian Life: Prayer” based on Matthew 6:5-13.  It is the first of a four part series on the Essentials of the Christian Life:

  • We are privileged to call God “Father”
  • We should worship and adore God in our prayers.
  • We should pray for our needs and for God’s guidance.
  • We should praise the Lord and thank Him for His blessings.
  • We are privileged to approach God’s throne because of what Jesus has done for us.
  • Those who have not believed on Jesus cannot call God “Father”.

Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday morning’s sermon, “Fireproof Faith” based on Daniel 3:13-31:

  • Hannaniah, Mishael, and Azariah were faced with obedience to God or compromise to save their hide.
  • Rather than compromise, they trusted God to save them.
  • They had decided that even IF God chose to not save them, they weren’t going to bow to the idol.
  • We won’t typically face those types of decisions because we will have already compromised.
  • We face the decision between obedience and compromise a hundred times a day.
  • We must be faithful to God and trust His way.

Here are some “sound bites” from yesterday morning’s sermon, “Baptism: God’s Command” based on Romans 6:1-7

  • Baptism does not save you.
  • Baptism is an act of obedience that demonstrates what has already taken place in your heart.
  • Baptism identifies you as a follower of Jesus Christ.
  • Baptism by immersion is the proper method of baptism for it symbolizes the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus.
  • A believer who delays baptism, delays obedience.
