Living Hope Sermon Series:
We believe that God uses the preaching of His Word to call His people to repentance, renewal and rejoicing. We believe the Scriptures are essential to the life of Living Hope so expository preaching has a central place in our corporate worship. The authority of preaching is found in authoritative Word of God. We believe that God uses the systematic preaching through various books of the Bible to establish and extend His authority. Our pastors strive by God’s grace to prepare their sermons prayerfully and diligently seeking to bring the grammatical historical truths of the texts to the attention of the listeners in a practical, relevant way. The sermons are posted here to be used as appropriate: catch a sermon that was missed, as a mid-week review, or to pass along to others in order to encourage them. May God richly bless His Word to the heart of the hearer!

No One Seeks God ~ Romans 3:9-20Clark H. Brooking,

Part of the Romans series.
Romans 3:9–20 (Listen)
9 What then? Are we Jews any better off? No, not at all. For we have already charged that all, both Jews and Greeks, are under sin, 10 as it is written:
“None is righteous, no, not one;
11 no one understands;
no one seeks for God.
12 All have turned aside; together they have become worthless;
no one does good,
not even one.”
13 “Their throat is an open grave;
they use their tongues to deceive.”
“The venom of asps is under their lips.”
14 “Their mouth is full of curses and bitterness.”
15 “Their feet are swift to shed blood;
16 in their paths are ruin and misery,
17 and the way of peace they have not known.”
18 “There is no fear of God before their eyes.”
19 Now we know that whatever the law says it speaks to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be stopped, and the whole world may be held accountable to God. 20 For by works of the law no human being will be justified in his sight, since through the law comes knowledge of sin.
