SHARPER THAN A SWORD

SERMONS

Hebrews 4:12-13 "For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. 13 And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account."

The Results of Willing Obedience!

Scripture Reading: Matthew 7:21-29


1 John 2:3 - Jesus once said, Luke 6:46.

A Poignant question!

A familiar complaint of those who despise Christian teaching is that "Christians" don't act like Christians!

It is a sad commentary on the condition of the Lord's family when the ungodly are more aware of the expected behavior of God's people than the Christians are.

Of course, the issue is not unique to the New Testament times. Israel's historical saga is replete with seasons of rebellion and repentance—so much so that the psalmist prayed:

Psalm 78:6-8

The emphasis by John in his first epistle, however, is not on the reasons for willful disobedience, but on the results of willing obedience.

Our deeds show whom we serve (1 John 3:7). Our righteous deeds prove whom we serve (Matthew 7:16-20).
