  • Putting Your Heart Where Your Money Is

    Contributed by Bob Joyce on Aug 4, 2011
    based on 4 ratings
     | 2,539 views

    The Apostle Paul demonstrated the essence of a missionary heart and challenges us to have the same.

    We are coming to the last words of the Apostle Paul, and we get a glimpse of the missionary heart of this great Apostle. The problem with many American Christians, and perhaps some of you in this room, is that to you, Christianity is just such a personal thing; you don’t ever want to share ...read more

  • Like Lucy

    Contributed by Bob Joyce on Aug 4, 2011
     | 2,222 views

    It takes the church, coming together in unity, with a common vision, a common mission, relinquishing our individual rights, in order to see things happen for the Kingdom.

    In one of the Peanuts specials, Linus is reclining on the floor watching television. Lucy walks in and says to him, “Change the channel right now.” Linus says, “I was here first, why should I change the channel?” Lucy holds up her hand. She said, “You see these five ...read more

     | 2,524 views

    The church does not exist to make us comfortable. We are under obligation to cater to the needs of those who are less mature.

    It’s About the Kingdom Romans 15:1-6 Max Lucado in his book A Gentle Thunder, tells a story about a man who encountered another man carrying a Bible. “Are you a believer?” “Yes,” he said excitedly. I've learned that you can't be too careful who you fellowship ...read more

  • Pay It Forward

    Jesus paid the debt of sin for us. Now we are obligated to pay it forward. We repay this debt by writing checks of love and forgiveness to others.

    Pay it Forward Romans 13:8-10 A woman and her husband came to the pastor and said, “We're going to get a divorce, but we want to come to make sure that you approve of it.” There are people who come to the pastor hoping that when they say there is no feeling left in their marriage, ...read more

    Biblical teaching about government authority and capital punishment.

    “I Don’t Like None of ‘Em!” apr1011 Romans 13:1-7 Grant Lovejoy, one time pastor of this church, was also my preaching professor at SWBTS. He cautioned us that there are 2 topics you never want to discuss from the pulpit: sex & politics. So let me just say, “I ...read more

     | 2,089 views

    How to treat our Christian family and how to deal with our foes.

    Open your Bibles to the book of Romans 16. We’ve come to the last chapter. Many of you are familiar with Norman Vincent Peale’s book, The Power of Positive Living. It’s a good book. It won’t get you to heaven, but it will really help you approach life with the right ...read more

  • Faith That Functions At A Walk

    Contributed by Bob Joyce on Jan 3, 2011
    based on 4 ratings
     | 2,057 views

    When we operate out of God's strength, we have a limitless supply of energy and strength for the journey of life.

    Today, let's think about faith that functions at a walk. The Scripture is Isaiah 40, beginning in verse 28: READ Isaiah 40 is one of the most fantastic chapters in God's Word. Read Isaiah 40 every day for thirty days, and it will change your life. Isaiah has almost been singing what it means in ...read more

  • Who Is Your Neighbor?

    Contributed by Bob Joyce on Jan 3, 2011
    based on 4 ratings
     | 2,267 views

    Living your life as a child of God has to do with loving God and loving neighbors in the name of God.

    Today's question from the Word of God is: Who is your neighbor? I would have to guess that this Scripture is the second most known story that Jesus ever told ... the story of the Good Samaritan. READ vv. 25-29 A Good Question And A Good Answer That's a good question. People ask questions for ...read more

  • New Wine

    based on 1 rating
     | 1,914 views

    The underlying reason for all of Jesus' mighty works is clearly stated in John 2:11, “In order that they might see, and seeing believe.”

    Out of the vast amount of material available to John, the writer of the Gospel, he has carefully chosen his material as an eyewitness of all Jesus did and said, In his writing he has a clear, guiding purpose. John 20:30-31 tells us, "Many other signs therefore Jesus also performed in the presence ...read more

    In Acts 27, Paul shows us practically how to have faith in the midst of a crisis.

    I want to talk about the faith that functions in a crisis and happens because of Christ. James Jeffries was an All-American at Baylor University, and he was the founder of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. One day he stood before the Fellowship of Christian Athletes annual meeting, not as the ...read more

  • A Word Of Praise

    Contributed by Bob Joyce on Jan 3, 2011
     | 2,937 views

    Psalm 150 answers four basic questions about praise: where, why, how and who.

    The predominant note in the book of Psalms is praise. In one form or another, the word "praise" appears in the book of Psalms 164 times, 13 times in our text for today. Each of the five books into which the Psalms has been divided ends with a doxology of praise (41:13; 72:19-20; 89:52; 106:48; ...read more

  • Business As Usual

    Contributed by Bob Joyce on Jan 3, 2011
     | 4,706 views

    We can get so caught up in our daily lives that we truly don't discern what God's Will is.

    Jesus had essentially one sermon. Everything He did and said revolved around that one message which was "the kingdom of God is at hand." He reminded those who exercised power of any kind on earth that they did not have the last word. He informed them that with His coming and in His person ... God ...read more

  • When You've Really Got It Made

    Contributed by Bob Joyce on Jan 3, 2011
     | 1,249 views

    Storing treasures in heaven is when you've really got it made.

    Verse one of Luke 12 tells us that many thousands of people had gathered in an open area to hear Christ. Can you imagine how quiet, how deathly still it must have been in order for those present to hear Christ? The Lie of Greed When there was a lull after He had been teaching some very heavy ...read more

  • But Lord!

    Contributed by Bob Joyce on Jan 3, 2011
    based on 3 ratings
     | 1,601 views

    Psalm 13 helps us to learn how to communicate with God on the deepest level. God is big enough to handle our tough questions. And He loves it when we talk to Him honestly.

    Communication between people takes place at three levels: the frivolous level, the factual level, and the feeling level. Frivolous communication takes place on the surface with the use of innocuous questions and casual clichés. How are you doing? Looks like it going to rain today? What do you ...read more

  • When We Follow Christ

     | 1,399 views

    John 21 describes the dynamics of discipleship

    I am not a good letter writer. It seems as if I always leave something out. When I do write letters, I often have to add a P.S. This final chapter of John's gospel seems to a postscript. The closing verses of John 20 seem to conclude the book. Then, as an apparent postscript, chapter 21 is ...read more
