We usually express gratitude through praise when someone helps us at a time of helplessness. We also bestow honor and praise to someone who is very prominent in the society. So our praise of someone is often dependent on what they have done for us, or who they are as a person. What if the God of the Bible is both generous or kind towards us at every situation in our lives and also the Greatest in this entire universe? In this passage, we learn how we need to praise God and the importance of doing it.
Right beliefs lead to right living. Our behavior indicates what we actually believe deep down in our hearts. In Christianity, a person needs to know, believe and trust that Jesus Christ died as a substitute for his/her sins, only then that person is saved and accepted by God. However, Christian life is not just about believing in Jesus, but also showing forth good works (right living) as a result of knowing and trusting in Jesus (right belief). In this sermon, we learn that right belief and right living are interconnected in christian life because that’s exactly what the Bible principally teaches.
The Bible is authentic because it is ultimately an autobiography of God. It is the Lord God Himself who wrote this book. He has used human agents and inspired them through the Holy Spirit to pen down his thoughts, but it was ultimately His guidance and his hands (figurative sense) that completed all 66 books of the Bible. What does this mean for us today? Listen to the sermon to find out.
Enjoying someone or something is to be human. According to the Bible, man’s chief end is to not just glorify God but to also enjoy him forever. Which means the ultimate purpose for man’s existence is to enjoy God. But why do we enjoy God? One simple fact is that he created us, he made us for himself, to find our pleasure and ultimate satisfaction in Him alone. In this sermon, we learn how to enjoy God through our lives.
What is the purpose of life? Is it to have a happy marriage or a successful career? Or is it to do something good for your country? Is it just to love someone or something like sex & money? Our culture has often limited life’s purpose to these categories, beyond which there’s no quest for truth. But what does the Bible say about man’s chief end? Listen to the sermon, as we explore the grand narrative of life’s main purpose.
