Faith Can Say No!

Dr. Warren W. Wiersbe | August 18, 1974

Selected highlights from this sermon

Moses was a great man of faith because he took hold of the truths of God. And just as God had a plan for Moses’ life, He has one worked out for each of us. When we apply God’s truth to our lives and seek His will for us, He works in our faith, values, decisions, and character.

Transcripts for Dr. Wiersbe's sermons are forthcoming. Below is an outline of his message.

Moses was a great man of faith because he took hold of the truths of God.

Greatness depends on our relationship with God.

God has a work planned for each of us, just as He did for Moses.

Four truths that change Moses’ life and ours.

  • Life is built on character
    • “Character is what a man is in the dark” (D.L. Moody).
    • Our reputation is what we think we are, but our character is who God knows we are.
    • The most important part of our lives is the part that only God sees.
  • Character is built on decisions.
    • Personality is the way we come across, but character is the way we actually are.
    • Moses decided to say no to the world and yes to God.
    • Making wrong decisions can erode our character.
  • Decisions are built on values.
    • We make decisions based on what’s important to us.
    • Moses valued God more than Egypt or the world.
    • We must say no to the pleasures of sin, the lusts of the flesh, and the pride of life.
    • If we are not making decisions on the basis of spiritual values, we aren’t making the right
    • Don’t sacrifice the eternal on the temporal.
  • Values are built on the faith.
    • Everybody lives by some sort of faith.
    • Christians’ faith is secure in Jesus.
    • When we read the Bible, God gives us faith.

If we have faith in Jesus, we will have the right values, make the right decisions, and build the right character.

When we start with faith in Jesus, everything else falls into place.
