These highlights are reprinted from the PowerPoint presentations created and used each Sunday by Bro. Joh Sermon Highlights – Crisis in Belief
These highlights are reprinted from the PowerPoint presentations created and used each Sunday by Bro. John Wheat, Pastor FBC Kenedy. We encourage you to have your Bible available in order to read the scriptures referenced in the sermon.
God is always at work around us.
God pursues a love relationship with us that is real and personal.
God invites us to join Him in His work.
God speaks by the Holy Spirit through the Bible, prayer, circumstances and the Church to reveal Himself, His purposes and His ways.
God’s invitation to join Him in His work will lead us to a crisis of belief that requires faith and action.
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see ... and without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.
Hebrews 11:1, 6
What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save him? ... but someone will say, “You have faith; I have deeds.” Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by what I do.
James 2:14, 18
Whoever has My commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves Me. He who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I too will love him and show Myself to him.
A Crisis of Belief
Abraham and Isaac
Our Crisis of Belief
Faith is required for salvation.
Obedience is required for experience.
“I believe the problem is that we have been trying to substitute praying for obeying, and it simply won’t work.”
The world is really looking to see if we will act upon what we say we believe. Experiencing God is within our grasp, if by faith we believe and by action we obey.

God is always at work around us
God pursues a Love Relationship with us that is real and personal
God pursues us:
Through Jesus Christ and His work on the Cross.
No matter who we are and no matter what we have done.
We receive God:
By faith in Jesus Christ.
By sharing God with others.
We Receive One Another:
By accepting each other
By loving one another.
Sure makes a life worth living.
“Break us, refine us, shape us, pursue us, until we look just like You in our love.”
