     | 13,516 views

    Satan would like nothing more than to destroy you and your witness for Christ. But, even if you fail, Jesus has prayed for you and wants you, out of the failure, to strengthen others when you recover.

    There are several events that have shaped the course of my life. Some have been quite dramatic. And because of the nature of the drama surrounding those events, they remain vividly etched in my memory.

    based on 48 ratings
     | 13,925 views

    We know more about the life of Peter than any other disciple which means we can trace his growth as a disciple. In a three section sermon we will see how Jesus helps His impulsive disciple to persevere, even when they fail.

    Simon Peter – sifted, sustained, serving. I recently went to a Men’s Shed Ministry where they were interviewing different men. One man told the story of his life. Which went like this:- Married – divorced. Married – divorce Married – divorce Found God Married first wife The end result is ...read more

    based on 144 ratings
     | 11,465 views

    Satan’s attempts to destroy God’s People are just as they were in the days when Peter was being sifted, but Jesus limits Satan’s sifting power.

    Living with the Sifter By Pastor Jim May Luke 22:31-36 31 And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: 32 But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren. 33 And he said ...read more

    based on 13 ratings
     | 14,810 views

    Oftentimes when our Faith Comes Under Attack, we feel the Sifting of the adversary because we begin to be led by our Emotions.

    TITLE: THE PRIVILEGE OF ATTACK SCRIPTURE: ST. LUKE 22:31-32 I shared this challenging thought this past week with a few preacher friends of mine, and they did not know what to do with it. I felt the Holy Spirit deposit this thought in me on last Sunday afternoon, therefore; I have had ...read more

  • Down But Never Out

    based on 18 ratings

  • The Joy Of The Lord Is Our Strength

    Contributed by Scott Coltrain on Nov 2, 2002
    based on 295 ratings
     | 72,816 views

    The Scriptures teach that the joy of the Lord is our strength. This is a lesson which provides guidance on how we can experience the power of spiritual joy in our Christian lives.

    Background: The Jews had returned from 70 years of foreign captivity in Babylon. While they were in Babylon, the Jews were not able to practice their religion in its entirety. In fact, for the most part, they did not have access to the Law of God. For most of the captives, whatever they knew ...read more

  • Keeping Warm At The Enemy's Fire Series

    Contributed by Dean Courtier on Aug 19, 2004
    based on 38 ratings
     | 10,118 views

    When we see an apparently strong Christian face a spiritual defeat, we tend to think, "I would have expected that to happen to anyone but him." Peter’s denial while keeping warm at the enemy’s fire creates a similar surprise.

    Title: Keeping Warm at the Enemy’s Fire Text: "Peter followed at a distance. But when they had kindled a fire in the middle of the courtyard and had sat down together, Peter sat down with them" (Luke 22:54-55 NIV). Scripture Reading: Luke 22:31-34, 54-62 Introduction When we see an ...read more

    based on 26 ratings
     | 6,600 views

    Just as Israel had a skewed picture of God, sometimes we do too. Instead of seeing God in His fullness, we only pick out certain attributes to focus on like His love and mercy. Do we see God as He is, or made Him into somthing He isn’t?

    1. How do you see the Lord? The Lord reveals Himself as: a. A seeking God (1b-3a) b. A sovereign God (3b-8) c. A sifting God (9-10) d. A saving God (11-15) 2. How does the Lord see you? a. If you don’t see Him as He’s revealed Himself, He will show Himself to you as Judge (8-10) b. If you ...read more

  • Moving Beyond Regret

    Contributed by Brian Atwood on Jun 27, 2005
    based on 24 ratings
     | 2,613 views

    How to move from regret to restoration.

    Like Simon Peter, sometimes we boast too much and pray too little. After he denied that he even knew Jesus, the crow of a rooster and the glance of Jesus brought him back down to earth. Mark 14:72 records that Peter broke down and wept after he realized the gravity of his actions. Yet ...read more
