Wrestling with God

April 2, 2017
This Old Testament story of Jacob wrestling with God has taken on a new and personal significance in my life as I wrestled with God in prayer over the life…
Bible Text: Colossians 3:12-17 | Preacher: Dr. George A. Mulford | Series: Colossians: Complete in Christ We're looking at Paul's exhortation to the Christian to live a Godly life. In this passage he continues with the thought of garments, putting off the grave clothes of sin and the old life and putting on the grace clothes of the new man and new life in Christ.  Here, Paul gives us four motives that ought to encourage us as we seek to walk in newness of life.

Will You Please Pray for Me

Bible Text: Romans 15:30-33 | Preacher: Dr. George A. Mulford | Series: Romans: The Gospel of God's Grace The apostle Paul was a remarkable man, a great missionary, perhaps one of the greatest Christians of all time in spite of great difficulties, and God used him in marvelous ways.  Here is a man who was on top of the heap, spiritually speaking, and yet, he felt it necessary to have people battling for him in prayer. So, while Paul is asking for people to pray for him, he was really inviting them to join him as he served the Lord Jesus Christ. It's my fervent prayer that God will use this message to remind us of the importance of intercessory prayer and that we'll get busy praying for the needs of those who serve the Lord Jesus Christ, as well as praying for the needs of one another.

Winning the War Within Us

Bible Text: Romans 7:14-25 | Preacher: Dr. George A. Mulford | Series: Romans: The Gospel of God's Grace I've been the pastor here for almost 25 years, but there's one member of this church who has  given me more trouble than anybody else. I stay angry at him most of the time,  and he just makes me miserable. So this morning I want to identify him and ask him to stand up... but  he's already standing because I'm talking about myself! While I do want to be a great person and a great pastor, sometimes my performance doesn't match my desire. You see, I've got a sin nature that I still struggle with even though I'm a Christian. If you do not, then maybe you've got a secret that the apostle Paul and I have not learned. Our passage today gives us the portrait of a maturing Christian, and if we are honest, I think most of us would say we can identify with everything Paul says here in these verses.
