Anona UMC offers sermon videos and audio of our weekly Sunday services.
This sermon could easily be called “The obstacle is the Way” or “The myth of easy Obedience”. Mary says to the angel “Let it be with me according to your word”. Her son, raised by her said, “Nevertheless” to God. Facing Adversity because it is the right thing is different. Purposeless hard is different than hard for a purpose.
Rev. Jack Stephenson
It’s limitless what God can use. There is nothing wasted in our lives. God turns ashes into beauty and fear into strength. God takes our adversity and makes it resiliency. Your scars may be the source of great wisdom, given to God. We become “wounded healers” bringing solace from our pain. All that can be an asset.
Sermon by: Dr. Jack Stephenson
2 Corinthians 1:4
Not all of us are going to become well-known and even fewer of us become famous. That doesn't mean our lives don't matter, and it certainly doesn't mean that our life can't or doesn't make a difference. Each of us can and does make a difference (good or bad). The question is, are we making a good difference on purpose?
Luke 4:16-21 and 19:10
