Tony Guthrie Shares: What To Do When Evil Wins

Tony Guthrie Shares: What To Do When Evil Wins | Sermon Planning | Scoop.it
What to do when evil wins in a Christian's life. Sometimes evil wins and Satan takes control.
Tony Guthrie's insight:
The words from the Scripture above are potent and tend to impact my spirit. I certainly understand that in order to not have fellowship with worldliness, which God detests, is a two-fold process.

Tony Guthrie Shares: Gaining Forgiveness

Tony Guthrie Shares: Gaining Forgiveness | Sermon Planning | Scoop.it
Oftentimes we need to be forgiven for our wrongs. Gaining forgiveness is an important aspect of a heathy Christian life.
Tony Guthrie's insight:
One of the truisms of life is that people are people. We all have our abilities and strengths. And one of the things we are able to do, and possess the strength do, is mess up. Sometimes we mess up in fairly harmless ways but at other times we can blow it royally. The "we" is intended. This means that "you" can mess up with the rest of us.

Tony Guthrie Shares: The Heart of God's Grace

Tony Guthrie Shares: The Heart of God's Grace | Sermon Planning | Scoop.it
People today need to feel the heart of God's grace. God's grace saves.
Tony Guthrie's insight:
I remember watching the mini-series Jesus of Nazareth as a teenager. Of course at the time I wasn't very knowledgeable about the Bible or biblical things. I didn't know that Hollywood took some liberties (for dramatic affect) with some of the biblical texts they made scenes from. Whatever liberties they took, I have discovered, were somewhat minor.

If a man or woman felt called to full-time ministry then the approach was simple ... (1) Pick a Seminary/Bible College (2) Make Application (3) Move to the campus (unless the school was located in the town you lived in) (4) Attend classes for 3 to 4 years (5) Graduate (Yay!)

Tony Guthrie Shares: When Hope is Lost

Tony Guthrie Shares: When Hope is Lost | Sermon Planning | Scoop.it
When hope is lost one often feels despair and pain. In this post ideas for dealing with lost hope are considered.
Tony Guthrie's insight:
Have you ever lost hope? I mean REALLY lost hope. Before I dive too deeply into that question perhaps I need to begin by defining hope. The word carries with it the idea of expectation. But this is no ordinary expectation. It is confident expectation. Hope is confidently expecting that something will be, or become, the reality of your life.

Tony Guthrie Shares: The Purity of a Pure Heart

Tony Guthrie Shares: The Purity of a Pure Heart | Sermon Planning | Scoop.it
Mathhew 5:3 relates to the pure in heart. The post defnes what it mean to be pure in heart
Tony Guthrie's insight:
"Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God." Matthew 5:8 This verse has always been significant for me. In my younger years I struggled with its meaning. What did it mean to be "pure in heart?" I knew how to live in purity outwardly even though I, like all people, failed at it regularly. But the "in heart" part was puzzling for me. I wondered if it had to do with my thoughts which were so difficult to control. I reasoned that if my thoughts were impure then my heart was as well. But again, possessing regular pure thoughts proved so challenging. In fact, if I can be transparent, it was practically impossible.

We have all heard the words, at one time or another, "You are in denial." People say this to us when we simply cannot face the reality of something. This post will focus mostly on how parents can be in denial but the application can be stretched to most forms of denial.

Tony Guthrie Shares: When You Don't Understand

Tony Guthrie Shares: When You Don't Understand | Sermon Planning | Scoop.it
When you don't understand something Proverbs 3:5-6 has some good advice. This post tells how to follow it
Tony Guthrie's insight:
Two of the most familiar verses in God's Word are proverbs 3:5-6 which read: "Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight." When you don't understand something that is happening in your life these words can be very encouraging. Oftentimes they can help us bring a new perspective to the stuff life brings. But sometimes the words in and of themselves aren't quite enough. Oh, how nice it would be if quoting Bible verses solves all the woes of the word! But I digress :-)

Tony Guthrie Shares: Redeem the Time NOW!

Tony Guthrie Shares: Redeem the Time NOW! | Sermon Planning | Scoop.it
Tony Guthrie's insight:
We have all heard those potent words before: "Redeem the time," "Seize the day (Carpe Diem)", "Today matters," and so on. Ephesians 5 is a potent chapter that begins with the mandate to follow the example of God Himself. Immediately following that we are encouraged to live the purest life possible. Then, if those mandates aren't "heavy" enough, Paul adds the idea of being wise and not wasting time on foolish things. He literally says for us to make the most of every oportunity we have to live like God, to be pure, to let love shine, and to make our lives matter for the Lord.

Tony Guthrie's insight:
For some preachers and teachers the power of observation has not been fully grasped. The ability to see the central idea of the text can be, for some, quite a challenge. The desire to preach “spiritual truth” drives him to seek out those deep spirtual pearls within the text. Often the approach is similar to walking along the beach looking for shells. “I hope I can find a really good one on this beach today!” is often the mindset. This approach is fine if one is merely looking for a souvenir. But expository preaching not about finding and displaying spiritual souvenirs. There is so much more to the beach than shells. What is really telling is the whole beach and it’s beautiful scenary. That is really what should be in view, not merely the quest for shells. As you consider the entirety of the beach the shells will come in to view as well. Read whole post ...
