  • Run For It

    Contributed by Austin Mansfield on Nov 11, 2007
    based on 1 rating
     | 1,415 views

    Zacchaeus and Martin Luther both learned the just are saved by faith; and Paul shows us that for Christians, All Saints Day and All Souls Day should be the same thing.

    Collect: Almighty and merciful God, it is only by your gift that your faithful people offer you true and laudable service: Grant that we may run without stumbling to obtain your heavenly promises; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ...read more

  • I Know My Redeemer Lives

    Contributed by Austin Mansfield on Nov 11, 2007
    based on 14 ratings
     | 24,838 views

    Like the Old Testament kinsman-redeemer, Jesus stands ready to reclaim and restore our place in his kingdom, rescue us from death, free us from slavery to sin, and be our advocate before the Father.

    Additional Scripture: Luke 20:27-38 In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to you, Lord, my rock and my redeemer. Amen.

  • The Power Of Love

    Contributed by Austin Mansfield on Oct 28, 2007
    based on 5 ratings
     | 12,465 views

    Often we reject our role as disciples because the thought of leading others to Jesus scares us. We don’t think we know enough about the Bible, or understand enough about theology, or believe we’re good enough. And we’re right.

    In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to you, Lord, my rock and my redeemer. Amen. (Psalm 19:14) As disciples we are all Christian leaders. That’s a concept we may not all be comfortable with. We ...read more

  • God Helps Those Who Help Themselves

    Contributed by Austin Mansfield on Oct 28, 2007
    based on 4 ratings
     | 3,588 views

    We’ve convinced ourselves that “God helps those who help themselves.” Many people believe that’s even in the Bible. It’s not. In fact, I can’t think of anything more unbiblical.

    In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to you, Lord, my rock and my redeemer. Amen. (Psalm 19:14) What an awesome healing story in today’s Gospel! I’m not referring to the cure; I’m referring to ...read more

  • Do Your Ears Itch?

    Contributed by Austin Mansfield on Oct 28, 2007
    based on 8 ratings
     | 5,855 views

    It seems like so many people have been revamping God’s Word lately, to make it less offensive, or more inclusive, or less intrusive into our personal behavior. Many of these people are clergy, which is even more disheartening.

    In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to you, Lord, my rock and my redeemer. Amen. (Psalm 19:14) Do your ears itch? It seems like so many people have been revamping the Word of God lately, to ...read more

  • Keeping The Faith

    Contributed by Austin Mansfield on Oct 28, 2007
    based on 3 ratings
     | 7,268 views

    We have hope only because we have faith. We only hope for what we believe is attainable. And we believe, or have faith, in God because of his love for us.

    (Lectionary Reading is 2 Timothy 4:6-8,16-18 -- 9-15 is left out) Collect prayer: Almighty and everlasting God, increase in us the gifts of faith, hope, and charity; and, that we may obtain what you promise, make us love what you command; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with ...read more

  • It's Not About The Money

    Contributed by Austin Mansfield on Oct 3, 2007
    based on 4 ratings
     | 1,875 views

    It’s not about the money. Many people hear this parable about the Rich Man and Lazarus and think that God’s got it in for rich people. But it’s not about the money. It’s about compassion.

    In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to you, Lord, my rock and my redeemer. Amen. (Psalm 19:14) It’s not about the money. Many people hear this parable about the Rich Man and Lazarus and think ...read more

  • Hoard Or Lord

    Contributed by Austin Mansfield on Sep 22, 2007
    based on 9 ratings
     | 2,011 views

    Jesus says we must all choose between God and our stuff. Increasing our hoard or serving our Lord; getting more space or getting more grace. The choice is ours.

    In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to you, Lord, my rock and my redeemer. Amen. (Psalm 19:14) Joseph Valachi was a gangster who worked for various crime bosses in the Mafia during the mid-20th ...read more

  • Eat, Drink, And Be Merry

    Contributed by Austin Mansfield on Sep 18, 2007
    based on 9 ratings
     | 6,514 views

    When our wants become more important than other people’s needs, we are no longer focused on God or following Jesus. We’re following ourselves in a meaningless cycle to get more things to leave behind when we die.

    Other Scripture used: Ecclesiastes 1:12-14;2:1-23 Psalm 49 Colossians 3:(5-11)12-17 In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to you, Lord, my rock and my redeemer. Amen. (Psalm ...read more

  • Faith In Action

    Contributed by Austin Mansfield on Sep 18, 2007
    based on 15 ratings
     | 4,082 views

    We all have it. Some more than others. Some people want more of it, while others try to deny having any of it at all. We rely on it to get us through each day, and it’s our key to eternal life.

    Other Scripture used: Genesis 15:1-6 Hebrews 11:1-3(4-7)8-16 Luke 12:32-40 Psalm 33 or 33:12-15, 18-22 In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

  • Prophets And Losses

    Contributed by Austin Mansfield on Sep 18, 2007
    based on 8 ratings
     | 1,858 views

    False prophets are not just an Old Testament problem. We have them in full force today, in all denominations, telling us that God is “doing a new thing,” misinterpreting Isaiah 43:19 to justify sin.

    Other Scriptures used: Jeremiah 23:23-29 Psalm 82 Hebrews 12:1-14 In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to you, Lord, my rock and my redeemer. Amen. (Psalm 19:14) False prophets are not ...read more

    based on 1 rating
     | 1,489 views

    We need to get back to the first-century approach to our walk with the Lord, caring for each other, loving each other, each individual Christian doing whatever he or she can for any child of God.

    Other Scripture used: Isaiah 28:14-22 Psalm 46 Hebrews 12:18-19,22-29 In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

  • In The Name Of Pride

    Contributed by Austin Mansfield on Sep 18, 2007
    based on 4 ratings
     | 1,932 views

    One of the worst characteristics, or symptoms, of pride is that it feeds off others in order to fill its host. Pride builds us up only by tearing others down.

    Other Scripture used: Ecclesiasticus 10:(7-11)12-18 Hebrews 13:1-8 Luke 14:1,7-14 Psalm 112 In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to you, Lord, my rock and my redeemer. Amen. (Psalm ...read more

  • Lost And Found

    Contributed by Austin Mansfield on Sep 18, 2007
    based on 3 ratings
     | 1,221 views

    Sheep wander off and get lost because they’re stupid. We know better and still do it anyway, so I’m not sure just how smart that makes us.

    Other Scripture used: Exodus 32:1,7-14 1 Timothy 1:12-17 Psalm 51:1-18 In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. God, grant me the Serenity to accept the people I cannot change, the Courage to change the one I can, and the Wisdom to know it’s me. Naval aviation ...read more
