Sermon 43 – The love yourself Christian

The modern church teaches that you can’t love your neighbour until you love yourself. The Bible teaches the opposite. The Bible teaches that if you want to be a genuine disciple you have to hate yourself (Luke 14:26,27,33).

The twelve disciples served Jesus in love with themselves. They proved this when they told the children to go away; they proved it when they asked for thrones next to Jesus, they proved it when they wanted to call fire down from heaven; and they proved it when they deserted Jesus at the inquisition.

All Christians do the same until they Read the rest of this entry »

Sermon 42 – the Terms & Conditions Christian

Recently whilst on holidays I observed an incident that caught my spiritual attention. A boy put his breakfast on a table in a park then turned away to do something and a bunch of seagulls swooped and devoured it. The boy fell to the ground in despair and sobbed his heart out. Then I heard him say these words … Read the rest of this entry »

Sermon 36 – It’s JESUS or the WORLD; You CAN’T have BOTH

Most Christians are happy to follow Christ as long as they can still enjoy the world’s goodies and lifestyles. Christians believe they are fine to enjoy the fun, movies, music, dress and houses just like the world does as long as they are good citizens. The modern thinking is …

Sermon 33 – FAITH IS THE KEY

Without faith it’s impossible to please God (Hebrews 11:6). The defining quality of a genuine Christian is faith. Most church-goers assume they have it, but few do. Faith cannot be manufactured; it’s born of God. Faith is initiated at the point of

Sermon 13 – The CANCER of ENVY

In the Greek the meaning of envy is …

Envy = pain felt and malignity conceived at the sight of someone else’s excellence or happiness. Envy can degenerate into a desire to make war upon the beneficiary, and thus to trouble their good and diminish it.

James 4:5 tells us that the spirit in us lusts to envy. That is, we are born with the inherent trait to want the best for ourselves in preference to what’s best for others. God defines this inherent characteristic as pride, and regards it as the top level of sin. There’s nothing you can do about the fact that you are born with sin, but there is a solution to your sin.
