The Mission of God’s People (2008)

The church’s mission picks up where Jesus left off: “to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion” (Isaiah 61:2-3a). How we can proclaim the fear of God in such a way that causes people to break down and get right with God, if we haven’t gone through it ourselves?

Jesus’ warning, “Judge not, that ye be not judged,” addresses the fatal self-righteousness that will block us from seeking the kingdom of God, his righteousness, and the mission to which we are called. Instead of selling out to Jesus,  most of us, without even realizing it, approach church as if we’re sampling desserts at the grocery store. Are you crushed by how you’ve treated God?

Nourishing Our Inner Life (2008)

In this meaty sermon, Pastor Ray digs deep into the three secret acts of righteousness for which God will openly reward us: giving alms, secret prayer, and fasting. These practices nourish our inner soul life and make us spiritually rich and fat, regardless of our physical circumstances. Selflessness and entire consecration to Jesus must underlay these three acts. This sermon is a must-listen for those seeking stability in their Christian experience, true Christian community, real answers to their prayers, the glory of God’s name, and the coming of his kingdom!

(Note: An outline of this sermon is available here!)

Melted in Prayer

On today’s broadcast, Pastor Ray discusses praying through the Lord’s prayer and how his heart is melted down during prayer. Is your heart melted down as you pray or is your heart cold and indifferent?

Deny Your Unbelief, and Pray! (2005)

On today’s broadcast, we ran a sermon from 2005 entitled above. Pastor Ray’s focus is on the Lord’s prayer. Jesus will bring us to a place where only He can deliver us time after time and the question that we must answer is whether we will deny our unbelief and pray? Jesus is faithful to teach us how to stand upon His promises, so trust and obey Him today!
