Sermon Notes: Fearing Fear or Fuelling Faith

According to psychology, rational fear and irrational fear are the most basic forms of fear. We know, however, fear is always counterproductive, whether rational or irrational. For example, the author of 1 Samuel describes Goliath and his weapons in great detail not only to highlight God’s power over the enemies of his people but also to imply Saul’s men feared him for a valid reason. However, it was counterproductive, and God raised David to deal with Goliath.

Sermon Notes: The Virus of Envy and the Cancer of Jealousy and the Antidote

In my sermon titled “4 reasons why Christians must not Lie” I stated lying is the most common sin in the church. Today I want to talk about yet another sinful practice that the bible calls one of the deadly sins. It’s none other than “Envy”. Speaking of envy, we cannot talk about it without talking about its cousin “Jealousy” – Envy and Jealousy have slight differences but the effects of envy and jealousy on our relationships and life are very much the same.

The cousins of envy and jealousy can suck the life out of our relationships and steal our peace of mind. Today I want to dive deeper into God’s word with you to learn more about envy and jealousy and show you how to overcome the dominion of envy and jealousy in your life.
