The God Who Hears Your Prayer, Week 1

This week we’re starting a series called “The God Who Hears Your Prayer,” but we almost named it “Can You Hear Me, God?” because a lot of times, that’s what prayer feels like. We start this series with a definitive reminder that God does indeed hear your prayers. And we start with a push to pray consistently as we begin our journey looking at prayer through the experience of several individuals in the Bible.

 

Resources mentioned in this sermon:
– A Praying Life by Paul E. Miller
– Prayer by Timothy Keller

Contentment in All Circumstances

Paul writes to the Philippians that he has learned to be content no matter what situation he’s in. Have you? That is a giant claim that Paul makes and one that we who live in a culture that screams ‘It’s never enough!’, desperately need to learn from.

Where is God When Life Happens

This week we broke from the norm of our ‘Where is God When Life Happens’ series and looked at a passage where Paul talks about how things didn’t go ‘according to plan’ in his life, and where he thought God was during all of it.

God’s idea of ‘the normal Christian life’ and ours are very likely two different things, but God knows exactly what he’s doing.

St Augustine said, ‘You have made us for yourself, and our hearts are restless until they can find rest in thee.’ We’ve spent the ‘Behind Closed Doors’ series talking a lot about how we look to things other than God for satisfaction and life. This week we’ll look at how we were made to worship God alone, and in him we find our true source of satisfaction and life.

Knowing what is right and what is wrong is hard! Ever thought how handy it would be if you just had a list that told you which shows it was ok to watch, which parties it was ok to go to, which job you were supposed to take, or when you should confront a friend engaged in morally ambiguous, or worse, behavior?

This week we continued our Behind Closed Doors series as we look at how to make gospel driven decisions.

Behind Closed Doors: Pornography

God made sex, and it is a great gift to us, but we are bombarded by messages and images distorting that gift and making it incredibly difficult to enjoy it the way he intended it. Pornography is among the most dangerous of those distortions, and it is changing the way we see sex, and the way we see each other. This week we look at why pornography is so alluring and why our faith in Christ is the key to overcoming it.
