2009 Sermons by Ray Pritchard

The Year of Good Riddance

December 30, 2009

Maybe we should make 2010 a Year of Good Riddance in which we say farewell to anger, bitterness, blaming, finger pointing, self-justification and a critical spirit, and ask God to grant us a fresh infusion of his grace in all of our relationships.

Sermon 3 of 16 from the Never Give Up! series

Six Miles From Jesus

December 22, 2009

Jesus stands at the end of life’s road for all of us. There can be no middle ground. The ultimate question is not how someone else responds but how you respond to Jesus. That’s really the only thing that matters.

Sermon 23 of 27 from the Christmas Messages series

When You Are Misunderstood

December 07, 2009

When others twist your words, do not despair. Speak the truth, explain yourself clearly, and then entrust your future to the Lord. If we trust in him, the time of chaos will pass, and we will be stronger for having gone through the struggle.

Sermon 2 of 16 from the Never Give Up! series

Why Is Life So Hard?

November 27, 2009

Don’t waste your pain. Use it to grow closer to the Lord and to his people. Use it as a means to minister to others. Our personal ministry begins as we share with others what God has shared with us.

Sermon 1 of 16 from the Never Give Up! series

Water, Wine, Wind, Fire

November 13, 2009

These four pictures of the Holy Spirit reveal different aspects of his ministry to us. We pray to know the Holy Spirit more deeply for he is Living Water, New Wine, Refreshing Wind, and Blazing Fire from Heaven.

Sermon 6 of 6 from the What a Christian Believes series

Korazin: Knowing Too Much and Believing Too Little

November 01, 2009

Don’t make the mistake of Korazin and take Jesus for granted. The day of grace comes to an end sooner or later. What will you say in the day of judgment if you have neglected the Son of God?

Sermon 1 of 1 from the Korazin: Knowing Too Much and Believing Too Little series

Paid in Full

October 18, 2009

Here is the gospel truth. Jesus died. God is satisfied. When Jesus said, “It is finished,” he meant it. Will you believe it?

Sermon 5 of 6 from the What a Christian Believes series

Singing Through the Lord’s Prayer

October 15, 2009

Listed below are hymns, gospel songs and choruses that correspond to the various parts of the Lord’s Prayer. I have found it helpful to sing my way through the Lord’s Prayer using these songs to focus my thoughts.

Sermon 12 of 12 from the And When You Pray: The Deeper Meaning of The Lord’s Prayer series

Lord’s Prayer People

October 13, 2009

The Lord’s Prayer answers the question, “What does Christian prayer look like?” Truly Christian prayer starts with God, moves to our human needs, and rises to God again.

Sermon 11 of 12 from the And When You Pray: The Deeper Meaning of The Lord’s Prayer series

Praying From the Footnotes

October 12, 2009

When we pray, we are to begin by asking that God’s name be hallowed and we are to end by praising God for his sovereign rule over the affairs of men. Thus the Lord’s Prayer begins with God and ends with God.

Sermon 10 of 12 from the And When You Pray: The Deeper Meaning of The Lord’s Prayer series

Who is Jesus Christ?

October 11, 2009

Who is Jesus Christ? A good man? A great teacher? A revolutionary leader? Or is he the Christ, the Son of the Living God? Your eternal destiny hangs on your answer.

Sermon 4 of 6 from the What a Christian Believes series

Deliver Us From Evil

October 11, 2009

This petition reminds us of how weak we really are. We are sitting ducks for the flaming darts of the devil. Unless the Lord helps us, we will not only face temptation, we will succumb to it every single time.

Sermon 9 of 12 from the And When You Pray: The Deeper Meaning of The Lord’s Prayer series

Unless You Forgive

October 09, 2009

When we pray, “Forgive us our debts as we also have forgiven our debtors,” we are asking God to forgive our sins according to the same standard we have used in forgiving the sins of others. When you pray this prayer you are really saying, “O God, deal with me as I deal with other people.”

Sermon 7 of 12 from the And When You Pray: The Deeper Meaning of The Lord’s Prayer series

Daily Bread Living

October 08, 2009

When you pray, “Give us this day our daily bread,” you confess that God is the sources of every blessing. Daily bread living means taking life one day at a time, being confident that God will take care of your needs day by day by day.

Sermon 6 of 12 from the And When You Pray: The Deeper Meaning of The Lord’s Prayer series

Nothing More, Nothing Less, Nothing Else

October 07, 2009

Praying “Your will be done” is an act of God-ordained rebellion. This is not a prayer for the weak or the timid. This is a prayer for troublemakers and rabblerousers.

Sermon 5 of 12 from the And When You Pray: The Deeper Meaning of The Lord’s Prayer series

Kingdoms in Conflict

October 06, 2009

“Your kingdom come” is not a passive prayer. If you ever decide to make the kingdom of God the first priority in your life, you may not become a missionary, but you will become fundamentally different from the world around you.

Sermon 4 of 12 from the And When You Pray: The Deeper Meaning of The Lord’s Prayer series

Taking God Seriously

October 05, 2009

When you pray, “Hallowed be your name,” you are both the voice and the feet of that petition. As the very words leave your lips, your life is part of the answer.

Sermon 3 of 12 from the And When You Pray: The Deeper Meaning of The Lord’s Prayer series

God Our Father

October 04, 2009

The Lord’s Prayer answers the greatest question of the universe–Is there anybody up there who cares about me? Is there anybody up there who knows my name? And the answer comes back-Yes. Yes. Yes. There is a God in heaven who cares about you. And he is called Father.

Sermon 2 of 12 from the And When You Pray: The Deeper Meaning of The Lord’s Prayer series

Invitation to the Heart of God

October 03, 2009

We approach the Lord’s Prayer with humility, saying with the first disciples, “Lord, teach us to pray.” Through prayer we journey from wherever we are on earth to the very heart of God.

Sermon 1 of 12 from the And When You Pray: The Deeper Meaning of The Lord’s Prayer series

Why I Believe in God

September 30, 2009

I believe in God because nothing in the universe makes sense without him. After all the arguments on both sides are finished, you still have to decide for yourself. You still have to choose. What choice have you made?

Sermon 3 of 6 from the What a Christian Believes series

Bestseller and More

September 18, 2009

I submit to you that the Bible will stand the toughest test and the hardest scrutiny because it is indeed the Word of God. That’s why after 2000 years it is still the best-selling book in the world. No other book contains the plan of salvation. No other book can tell you how to get to heaven.

Sermon 2 of 6 from the What a Christian Believes series

Are We All Hindus Now?

September 05, 2009

Christians must reassert the supernatural basis of the Christian faith. We must not stutter where God has spoken clearly. And we must make clear the utterly exclusive claims of Jesus Christ.

Sermon 1 of 6 from the What a Christian Believes series

Praying for the Sick–Part 2

August 28, 2009

Through prayer we have the privilege of lifting the burden from our brothers and sisters. Through prayer we may become agents of healing to those who are sick. What an honor to be used of God in this way. When we pray for the sick, we are doing the work of Jesus in the world.

Sermon 2 of 2 from the Praying for the Sick series

Praying for the Sick–Part 1

August 18, 2009

If we pray at all, sooner or later we will spend time paying for the sick. Our prayers matter to him. Our prayers matter to the sick. When we pray for the sick, we are bringing God’s mercy into the hospital room and inviting the Great Physician to take up the case.

Sermon 1 of 2 from the Praying for the Sick series

Theology at Midnight

August 09, 2009

Anyone can sing “Shout to the Lord” when life is good, your health is good, your marriage is strong, your kids are doing well, and all is right with the world. If with Paul and Silas you can sing praise to God at midnight in jail, then what you’ve got is real.

Sermon 1 of 1 from the Theology at Midnight series

Dirty Feet

July 24, 2009

We are not imaginary sinners! We are great sinners who need a great Savior. And we have one in Jesus Christ who stooped so low that he was not ashamed to wash our dirty feet.

Sermon 8 of 8 from the Beyond Denial: Finding Ourselves in Peter’s Story series

How to Kill a Giant

July 17, 2009

If you are in the will of God, the giants who fight you are actually fighting God. That’s why God sends giants in our path on a regular basis: First, to see if we will run or fight. Second, to allow us an opportunity to honor our God.

Sermon 1 of 1 from the David--The Early Years series

Walk on Water, Pete!

July 10, 2009

Christ calls us to find out what he is doing in the world, and then to fling ourselves wholeheartedly into his cause. Staying in the boat may be comfortable and safe, but that’s not what the life of faith is all about.

Sermon 7 of 8 from the Beyond Denial: Finding Ourselves in Peter’s Story series

What Christ Does With Failure

July 01, 2009

John 21 is in the Bible so that all of us Peter-types would know that though we fall again and again, by God’s grace we can keep on getting back up. If he did it for Peter, he can do it for me and for you.

Sermon 6 of 8 from the Beyond Denial: Finding Ourselves in Peter’s Story series

Before the Rooster Crows

June 29, 2009

Peter’s fall proves that anyone can fall at any time so we should be warned. His restoration proves that God’s grace truly is greater than all our sin. Therefore, let sinners everywhere flee to Christ for forgiveness.

Sermon 5 of 8 from the Beyond Denial: Finding Ourselves in Peter’s Story series

Rejoicing and Weeping

June 20, 2009

Here is God’s dream for every church. That through preaching the gospel men and women everywhere can experience the life-changing power of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. And to be the kind of place where, no matter what kind of week you’ve had, you can come in and say, “Ahh, I’ve made it.”

Sermon 1 of 1 from the Rejoicing and Weeping series

Midnight Miracle

June 18, 2009

When Jesus is betrayed and arrested, Peter impulsively strikes with his sword to try to protect Him. Jesus rebukes Peter, heals Malchus’ ear and quietly submits, knowing that in the end, God’s will must be done. What should Peter have done? How does a follower of Christ react when all is lost?

Sermon 4 of 8 from the Beyond Denial: Finding Ourselves in Peter’s Story series

The Midway

May 28, 2009

If only a few people will be saved, how can there be a vast multitude in heaven? And why do so many people miss the narrow gate while many others find it? Life on the midway helps us answer those questions.

Sermon 1 of 1 from the The Midway series

What If

May 15, 2009

Jesus said, “My house shall be called a house of prayer.” Wouldn’t it be wonderful if that were true of your church? My church? Every church?

Sermon 9 of 8 from the Asymmetric Spiritual Warfare series

How to Meet the Enemy

May 08, 2009

No believer is safe who faces Satan in his own strength. No believer is more secure than he who goes into battle wearing the whole armor of God.

Sermon 8 of 8 from the Asymmetric Spiritual Warfare series

Who is the Real Enemy?

April 29, 2009

Christianity is not a religion for sissies or for those who want an easy road. If you are looking for an escape from your problems, Jesus is not for you. Christianity is for strong men and women who will not flee from the struggle.

Sermon 7 of 8 from the Asymmetric Spiritual Warfare series

Worthy is the Lamb

April 06, 2009

The glory of heaven is the Lamb—Jesus Christ, whose victory is celebrated without end. Jesus is the focal point of heaven and the center of all attention. Without Jesus there would be no heaven at all. And without him none of us would ever have a chance to go there.

Sermon 6 of 8 from the The Deeper Meaning of the Cross series

Why God Allows Good Men to Fall

March 28, 2009

Peter still speaks to us today. “If you think you’ve fallen short, if you feel like you’ve denied him, look at what happened to me." Do not despair. God still loves you, and He loves you so much that it doesn’t matter what you’ve done. If God can forgive Peter, he can forgive anybody.

Sermon 3 of 8 from the Beyond Denial: Finding Ourselves in Peter’s Story series

How Good Christians Sometimes Do the Devil’s Work

March 23, 2009

As it was for Peter, so it will be for all of us. Our strengths and our weaknesses lie side by side. If we live on the level of our emotions, we may find ourselves actually opposing Jesus. If we think that our understanding equals God’s will, we are bound to fall into many grievous errors.

Sermon 2 of 8 from the Beyond Denial: Finding Ourselves in Peter’s Story series

Why I Am Not a Pessimist

March 18, 2009

Christians are both pessimists and optimists, but we are much more optimistic because though we see what is happening in the world around us, we know that Jesus Christ conquered the grave. And because he lives, we too will live.

Sermon 1 of 3 from the Soul Food: Ephesians for the 21st-Century series

The Next Hero

March 08, 2009

Hebrews 11 is God’s “Perpetual Plaque” of those who lived by faith. And if you look closely, you can see there is plenty of room for more names. There’s room for you and there’s room for me.

Sermon 15 of 15 from the Outrageous Faith series

How God’s Will Can Mess Up Your Life in a Good Way

March 01, 2009

God’s will is always good, but it’s not always comfortable. And it’s certainly not predictable. What if God blew your categories and gave you success beyond your wildest dreams? What if he let you fail miserably so he could give you overwhelming success later?

Sermon 1 of 8 from the Beyond Denial: Finding Ourselves in Peter’s Story series

Miracles Come in Many Varieties

February 22, 2009

I cannot promise you an easy road if you decide to follow Jesus Christ. But I can promise you this. You will be blessed and you won’t be sorry. And in the end, you will discover that the life of faith is full of adventure, and you will be glad you weren’t a couch potato but dared to make a difference in the world.

Sermon 14 of 15 from the Outrageous Faith series

Four Cracked Pots

February 16, 2009

God honors faith, and he seeks it so much that he will honor people who otherwise do some very stupid things. He uses flawed people to accomplish his will so that when the victory comes, he alone gets the glory.

Sermon 13 of 15 from the Outrageous Faith series

From Rahab to Jesus

February 07, 2009

God delights in saving notorious sinners. He proved it by saving Rahab, a prostitute in ancient Jericho whose faith saved her whole family. There is no pit so deep that the love of God is not deeper still. There is no sin so terrible that Jesus cannot forgive it.

Sermon 12 of 15 from the Outrageous Faith series

Can We Still Believe in Life After Death?

January 28, 2009

One day the Sadducees tried to trick Jesus with a very weird question. Jesus’ surprising answer teaches us a great deal about life after death. Our hope of the resurrection rests on the faithfulness of God. Our hope for the future rests not in science, not in speculation, not in some proof text, but in the character of God himself!

Sermon 8 of 8 from the Close Encounters with Jesus series

How Faith Works

January 16, 2009

The life of faith is inherently a life of risk. It is not for those timid souls who want to play it safe all the time. As long as we limit God to what we think he can do, we will never see anything great because our faith remains so small. But once we are willing to suspend our disbelief and renounce our skepticism, then and only then do we become candidates for a miracle.

Sermon 7 of 8 from the Close Encounters with Jesus series

The Standing Orders of the Gospel

January 11, 2009

The real impact of the gospel will be seen when we don’t feel joyful, when we don’t want to pray, and when we can’t think of a reason to be thankful. That’s when we discover if our Christianity is the genuine article or a spiritual counterfeit.

Sermon 14 of 14 from the I Thessalonians series

Why God Makes It Hard When It Ought to be Easy

January 04, 2009

2 Samuel 2-3 tell the story of David’s long struggle to become king over all Israel. His life is a pattern of how God deals with his children. It is God’s plan to vindicate us slowly, bless us openly, surprise us occasionally, and test us continually. God intends to develop our character, and to do that adversity is essential.
