Important Figures In Christian Sermon DVDs

By Brenda Sullivan

One of the essential ways of developing spiritual maturity is by listening to God's word. God's word does not exist only in the Bible as people can also know his heart desires by listening to inspirational talks and music from anointed speakers. Materials such as Christian sermon DVDs and tracts are also among the things every believer should have in his closet. DVDs that treat the lives of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses and Jesus Christ should not be left out when buying Christian materials.

Abraham is regarded in Christianity as the father of faith. This may be as a result of his unwavering trust in God even in his old age. Most of the inspiration about Abraham can be drawn from the fact that he believed in God when he was told that he would have a son in his old age. Most preachers also like to talk about his reliance on God even to the point of attempting to sacrifice his only son after the prophecy came to pass.

Isaac was the father of Esau and Jacob. Most preachers love to talk about Isaac because of his obedience especially when he was taken up to Mount Moriah to be sacrificed by his old father, Abraham. He was the father of Jacob and Esau and was therefore instrumental in the emergence of the Israelites.

The life of Jacob in the Bible is still something many professed Christians may find difficult to set as an example. Jacob was the man who changed his destiny at Bethel and Peniel after waiting earnestly on God. It was his refusal to succumb that made him scale through and eventually become the instrument for God to bring up the twelve tribes of Israel.

When people talk about achieving their dreams despite trials and difficulties, referring to the life of Joseph can make it sound realistic. From the treacherous hands of his brothers to the hands of his slave masters for a few pieces of silver, Joseph never knew that he was on his path to fulfilling his mandate. Most believers will be more at peace with God if they knew that God uses difficulties to train men.

Picking up DVDs that center on Moses will probably make you understand why he was considered the greatest prophet that has ever emerged. Moses was the first man to see the back of God and the one who led the children of Israel out of bondage in Egypt following the death of Joseph and the emergence of a Pharaoh who did not know his story. More about his personality and why he was not allowed to enter the Promised Land can be heard on sermons.

Samson DVDs talk about many things such as carefulness and perseverance in maintaining God's standard. Samson was gifted in strength and even though it was used to a large extent, the Bible still records that he died with his enemies. Knowing how to keep God's gift intact should be the duty of any believer.

Jesus Christ of Nazareth is the center of many messages on DVD. It is necessary to buy materials that talk about Jesus and his salvation because doing so will make one understand more clearly the vanity of life and what to do to enter Heaven. His attributes, qualities and his death at the Cross of Calvary can be found in almost any church bookshop.
