Cartersville First Baptist Church\'s Sermons
Show me Your Muscles - 6/28/2020
It has been said that Acts is the story of what happens in between prayer meetings. In Acts 12:1-25 the church earnestly prays, and their prayer flexes the omnipotent arm of Almighty God! Prayer is our power! Prayer pours out God’s power in our lives. How’s your prayer life?
The Rise of Antioch - 6/21/2020
As the Jerusalem church is dispersed, they fall into disobedience in regards to sharing the Gospel to the gentiles. It’s the church at Antioch that takes on the challenge and opens the door for the gentiles to be included in the faith. As a result, the Lord’s hand is upon them and the Kingdom of God is advanced.
A Psalm for the Shadows - 6/14/2020
Life changes like the weather. Life is not all green pastures and still waters. Life includes times of the valley of the shadow of death. Psalm 23 is a psalm for the shadows. Here we are reminded in times of trouble that we have a Shepherd who has promised to meet all our needs. His power provides for all our needs. His presence protects us from all fear. His preparations produce blessings now and forever! Can you with absolute confidence claim Lord as your shepherd?
Prayer or Partiality - 6/07/2020
Don’t you love it when a plan comes together? We sure do because life can eat our best plans for breakfast! Unlike our plans, God’s plans always come together! Therefore, what really matters in life is whether or not you are in or out of God’s plan. In Acts 10:1-48 we learn what puts us in God plan and what puts us out. God shows no partiality! God’s plans always come together. Prayer puts us in God’s plan. Our partiality puts us out!
Here and There - 5/31/2020
Acts 9:32-43 tells the story of two problems. These two earthly problems had a heavenly purpose. Peter saw their purpose because he has his “glasses” on! He saw earthly problems through the eyes of the Holy Spirit! Such sight transformed Peter’s coming and going from ordinary to extraordinary. This text teaches us that God wants our going to accomplish His goals! Our earthly problems have a heavenly purpose! Can you see it?
Who is Playing You?
Acts 9:1-31 is the single most well-known story in the book of Acts. Saul gets saved and learns that he is a chosen instrument of God. You may not have had a “Damascus Road Experience” like Saul did when he was saved—but if you’ve been saved you too are a chosen instrument of God to carry His name before ___________ (you fill in the blank). Have you realized you are an instrument? Have you realized your purpose in life? Are you ready to tell God, “Here I am, Lord!”?
