“Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.”
Galatians 6:7-10 NIV
Sermon number seven from the Grace to You series I’ve been working my way through, “Pillars of Christian Character,” is about joy. We know from Galatians that joy is one of the fruits of a spirit-filled and spirit-controlled life. It also may be my favorite character trait.
This sermon looks at how it should be a part of church life, the command to rejoice regardless of circumstances, what sin does to joy and other biblical passages about this essential character trait.
The sixth sermon in the Grace To You series that I’ve been listening to once a week is all about forgiveness.
Speaking for myself, forgiving others can be a struggle at times. I’m glad I was reminded and chastised through this message. You can listen to it here.
Following last week’s love sermon, the next in the Grace to You series of sermons from Pastor John MacArthur is focused on unity.
Last week some things in my life sort of felt like they were imploding, so I failed to post sermon number three here. It was a sermon about humility. I did share it on Facebook, but couldn’t find time to write up a post here. Sorry about that.
