  • Reluctant Recruits

    Contributed by Robert Leroe on Jan 1, 2018
     | 1,221 views

    Jesus did not present a rosy, unrealistic picture of the Christian life. In Luke 9 we encounter 3 potential recruits. Jesus appraises their resolve, exposes their excuses, and urges them to consider the cost of discipleship

    It’s Career Day at the high school and a small crowd is gathered at the Army’s booth. A Recruiter tells the students about field duty in the winter, eating MRE’s, family separations, grueling physical exercise, frequent moves, and the likelihood of war…and pretty soon he’s standing alone. The ...read more

     | 3,109 views

    It's hard to understand a little that Jesus is both Lord and friend. In this sermon I look at the relationship we have with Jesus and that He cannot be friend without Lord or Lord without friend … they come hand in hand!

    John 15: 9-17 9 “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. 10 If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. 11 I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be ...read more

  • An Illogical Question: Carest Thou Not?

    Contributed by Kevin Williams on Jul 20, 2017
     | 1,887 views

    The things we say in the midst of the storm! Like the disciples fearful of dying at sea while Jesus lies asleep, we cry out, "Carest Thou Not"? Answer the question now and find strength later in the storm. Feed faith, now!

    An Illogical Question: "Carest Thou Not" (Some things make "no" sense) [ Maaan, The Stuff I Say In A Storm] Mark 4: 35-41 And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side. And when they had sent away the ...read more

  • Between Two Kingdoms

    Contributed by Robert Leroe on Jul 10, 2017
     | 1,021 views

    Christians live within the tension of being in a fallen, broken world, while trying not to be influenced by it.

    “He has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the Kingdom of His beloved Son” (Colossians 1:13). As Christians, living between two kingdoms is what we do every single day, regardless of where we are. We face the challenge of living as Christ’s followers in an unholy, ...read more

  • Resurrection Series

    Contributed by Rob O'neal on Apr 11, 2016
     | 3,510 views

    Women hoping to tend to Jesus’ body went to his tomb. The stone closing the entrance was rolled aside. They met an angel announcing that Jesus had been raised from the dead. This event set in motion our own final salvation.

    Easter started in darkness. Jesus had been buried quickly but compassionately after he died on Friday afternoon. With permission from the Roman governor, Joseph of Arimathea and Nicodemus, two Jewish religious leaders who quietly followed Jesus, took Jesus’ body down from the cross, carried ...read more

  • Our Eyes Are On You

    Contributed by Robert Leroe on Apr 7, 2016
     | 3,076 views

    A final sermon to a congregation at my retirement. This may help fellow-pastors who need to construct a last, parting message.

    I have served as your 14th pastor, and I'm retiring again after 17 years here in Saugus. I'm retiring just as I did after 25 years as an Army Chaplain--with fond memories and no regrets. This is all to the glory of God. Our choir sang “To God be the Glory,” which was sung at my ...read more

  • The Lordship Of The Risen Christ

    Contributed by Robert Leroe on Mar 30, 2016
     | 1,482 views

    A key accomplishment of the empty tomb is so Jesus might be “the Lord of both the dead and the living.” Lordship implies ownership or the right to exercise authority over another. When we come to Jesus, we're under new management.

    “Christ died and returned to life so that He might be the Lord of both the dead and the living.” A few months ago I was summoned to serve jury duty for a serious murder case. Because of my former work with law enforcement and corrections, I wasn't selected, but I followed the case, ...read more

  • Choose This Day Series

    Contributed by Robert Leroe on Mar 14, 2016
     | 2,511 views

    We cannot be neutral. When God calls us, He demands strict and exclusive loyalty. We're to renounce all God-substitutes. We have a choice to make.

    Knowing he is near the end of his life, Joshua assembles the elders to give one last charge to Israel. It is a solemn moment, and the climax of the book. Joshua's last words are rooted in history, and in the wondrous works of God the children of Israel witnessed themselves. Joshua reminds his ...read more

    Caleb was resolute in his faith and objectives. He shows us that life is a matter of perspective. Where others saw obstacles, he saw opportunities.

    When I was in high school in New Jersey, I attended a church whose youth leader loved to sing an old-timey chorus: “I want that mountain, I want that mountain; where the milk and honey flow, where the grapes of Eschol grow. I want that mountain, I want that mountain, the mountain that the ...read more

  • Stopping The Sun Series

    Contributed by Robert Leroe on Feb 28, 2016
     | 2,234 views

    God is the Warrior who fights for His people. When we're operating on our own, we accomplish what talent and education and money can do. When we're walking with God, we accomplish what God can do.

    “Stopping the Sun” -Joshua 10:1, 5-14; Pastor Bob Leroe, Cliftondale Congregational Church, Saugus, Massachusetts (28 Feb 2016) It turns out that D-Day wasn't “The Longest Day.” It was the Battle of the 5 kings! Here's how it began: Israel was deceived into making ...read more

  • Sin In The Camp Series

    Contributed by Robert Leroe on Feb 22, 2016
     | 1,781 views

    God's punishment upon Achan (and his family and possessions) seems severe...and it was, because sin is a serious matter. Sin is rebellion. Sin is covenant-breaking. Sin is choosing to go our way and reject God's way. And sin has consequences.

    Hamlet famously complained that “Something is rotten in the state of Denmark.” Joshua found that something was rotten in Canaan, within his own people. After devoting himself to God, and after a miraculous victory at Jericho, Joshua's army suffered a defeat in Ai. Israel was enjoying ...read more
