    Just as the wine ran out at the wedding feast, so can our wine run out. Sometimes we experience "dry times" in our life and ministry. When the wine runs out, let's run to Jesus for He is the one Who turns the water into wine.

    WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN THE WINE RUNS OUT? John 2:1-11 The first miracle of our Lord took place in a town called, Cana of Galilee. The event was a wedding. Cana was a inconspicuous little town that lay outside of Nazareth. Cana had no social prominence in its day! In fact, biblical scholars took 1800 more

  • Listen To Love

    Contributed on Dec 27, 2008

    This message aims through Scriptural interpretation, illustration and a communication model to inform the listener to "listen" with a framework of love and care.

    LISTEN TO LOVE Less talk, more communication "For the measure you measure with will be measured back to you" (Luke 6:38) 1. How hard is it to find someone who will really listen to you? • Those of us who have identified with Jesus the Christ, have been taught a very special kind of more

  • Blessed Are The Peace Makers Part Ii

    Contributed on Dec 9, 2008

    Delivered just prior to the Christmas Holiday, the aim of this message was to lead the congregation into a deeper awareness of the "why" of Christmas - He was born to die that we may know the "Prince of Peace".

    Blessed are the Peace-Makers Part II Matthew 5:9 "Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God." Isaiah 9:6 "For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, more

    Contributed on Dec 27, 2008

    Here is a modern example of the tragedy of not listening, a modern example of the measure you measured with being measured back to you.
