  • The Parable Of The Sower

    Contributed by Brad Beaman on Aug 11, 2008
    based on 3 ratings

    Not everyone you share the gospel with will have hardened hearts. You should have hope. There are those who will receive the gospel for what it is, the words of eternal life.

    Why is it that one person responds to the gospel and is deeply moved and all they can think and talk about is sharing Christ with others while at the same time another person seems unmoved that Jesus died for them? You find one person moved to tears by the gospel and another cold and distant. more

  • Preaching At Pentecost,

    Contributed by Brad Beaman on Aug 11, 2008
    based on 1 rating

    The world calls it foolishness. The preaching of the Gospel is the power of God.

    It is a foolish thing to preach a sermon. When you stand up and tell people that they are lost and that their only hope of salvation rests in the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus that in the world’s way of thinking is foolishness. Not that standing before people and talking is foolishness. more

  • The Serious Side Of Sin

    based on 1 rating

    Yes they were hypocrites, pretending to give all but in actuality only giving part. But how could they receive a death sentence just for that?

    There are two approaches to presenting the gospel. One is a positive approach and the other is a negative. An emphasis on the positive is good for making a long term impact. The negative side sometimes instills a more reactive response. This passage is about the negative side of sin. It is a harsh more

  • Rekindle The Flame Series

    Contributed by Brad Beaman on May 31, 2008
    based on 6 ratings

    If you don’t love Jesus as much as when you first met him that is a big problem. It is no small matter when a church loses it’s first love for Christ.

    As Pastor of a prominent Church in Boston, A. J. Gordon stood to address a packed crowd. Before he began to preach one of the deacon’s escorted a stranger in and seated him. There was something about the man that bothered Gordon. His penetrating eyes made it difficult to preach the sermon. When the more

  • When The Church Is Shaken

    Contributed by Brad Beaman on Feb 14, 2008
    based on 4 ratings

    We are glimpsing the early church at a very turbulent and emotional time. How do they respond in such a time of crises?

    The Highlands of Scotland are known for their shy and reserved temperament. Just how that became the temperament is not known. Some suggest it is the cold weather and long winters with very little daylight. The reserved nature is part of their culture and that reflects itself in every area of life, more

  • The Author Of Life – Killed

    Contributed by Brad Beaman on Jan 12, 2008
    based on 1 rating

    This message set some people free and made some people furious. Peter claiming they are sinners responsible for crucifying the Messiah.

    Some times things are just not good. There is the picture of the man at the psychiatrist’s office and his psychiatrist puts things in layman’s terms. Your mind is like a bicycle, your pants got caught in the sprocket and the chain came off. Not good! In Acts 3:11-26 Peter tells a crowd of more

    based on 9 ratings

    Here is a man born crippled. In his whole life he has never walked. Suddenly he is healed and he is walking and leaping and praising God!

    The reports were astounding. There were so many professions of faith, baptisms and new house churches that formed that it seemed to come right out of the pages of Acts. I was more than happy to lead the team of twelve researches tasked to better understand how the gospel was moving so rapidly. We more

  • How Are You Known?

    Contributed by Brad Beaman on Dec 23, 2007
    based on 2 ratings

    How are you known at work, in your neighborhood? Jesus has this question in mind when he is speaks to his disciples on love. You are known by your love.

    I took two bicycle camp holidays to Majorca along with six of my friends. Each of them were two weeks long. Each group had about 150 people total on the trip. Once we reached the Island we divided into five groups by our riding ability. So we spent the early morning up until lunch riding with about more

    The "Great Vine" outside London is the oldest and largest vine in the world. But guess what. There is an even greater “Great Vine” Jesus and we are the branches.

    The Great Vine in the Hampton Court Palace Gardens outside of London is the oldest and largest known vine in the world. The Great Vine is more than 230 years old. It measures 12 feet around the base. Its longest rod is 120 feet. The fruit produced each year averages 500 to 700 clusters of grapes more

  • Total Commitment To Christ

    based on 5 ratings

    We find Mary, who was the sister of Lazarus who would give the moon if it were hers to give. Mary gave extravagantly to the Lord.

    I get motivated when I hear songs about the extent people will go for love. I read this poetic expression of love recently. I would climb highest mountain for your love. I would swim the deepest ocean. Oh my love, I will come by and see you Saturday if it is not raining. Not much of a more

  • Christmas: Praise God

    Contributed by Brad Beaman on Dec 10, 2007
    based on 2 ratings

    Christmas broke 400 years of silence from God, big time. Now suddenly at Christmas God was speaking abundantly.

    Have you ever heard the expression silence is golden? I can relate to that expression when after a long time of activity and noise in our house there is silence. In those times I relate to the expression silence is golden. But now I want to focus on times when silence is not golden. The Old more

    Can you imagine a scene in the bird nest where Momma Bird asks Papa Bird, What’s wrong Papa why aren’t you sleeping? Papa bird says, “I’m worried.

    During the Sermon on the Mount Jesus tells us not to worry, Matthew 6:25-34. In this passage three times Jesus tells his disciples not to be anxious, not to worry. Worry is Futile Matthew 6:25-27 "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your more

  • Living In A Fishbowl Series

    Contributed by Brad Beaman on Dec 2, 2007
    based on 4 ratings

    You live in a fishbowl and people are watching to see if your walk matches your talk.

    I remember when I was pastor of a church and living in the parsonage directly across from the church. It was like living in a fishbowl. It was the glass house syndrome where it seemed everyone could see right into our house. People knew if I was home, because my car was parked there. They knew who more
