  • Power Abuse & Half Truths

    Contributed by Carl Greene on Jun 21, 2010
    based on 3 ratings
     | 4,432 views

    The story of an honest man, Naboth, killed as a result of an abuse of power and perhaps, because of a king... Ahab ... telling half truths. It also warns of the potential of abuse of power/influence by Christians.

    This is one story of several that trace the confrontation between the prophet Elijah and king Ahab. Ahab is usually a pretty bad guy. These stories have there origins in chapter 17. There, Elijah seems to burst on the scene from out of nowhere, and curses a drought into existence in the presence ...read more

    The Greek word for “roadside, road and ‘way’” are the same word. Bartimaeus ask for and received his sight. Upon seeing clearly, he got up and followed [Jesus] along the road… along the “way.”

    “What do you want me to do for you?” If Jesus were to come through the doors of this sanctuary this morning, walk up the center isle then suddenly pause, then turn to you and ask that question….how would you respond? Think about that question for just a moment. “What do ...read more

    Elijah the great prophet shows us his humanity when he panics after a triumphant encounter with Baal worshipers. But God never gives up on him, God feeds him, shelters him, and speaks to him, not in the thunder, but in a still quiet voice.

    Ever been caught in a disaster? Chances are that all of us will be at some point, whether it’s a personal crisis or something more widespread such as a tornado or an earthquake. Doesn’t it seem we’re used to hearing about disasters every day? Some, like the oil spill, or the sudden flood in ...read more

    The story of Abraham and Isaac.... from a little different prospective...

    “SOME TIME LATER, GOD TESTED ABRAHAM.” Abraham Little is know of Abraham until he was 75 yrs old (much like we know little of Jesus until His ministry @ age 33) We can track his genealogy from Adam to Noah to Abram to Abraham. At 75 God called Abram, by now Abram was married to Sari…but ...read more

    In the middle of nowhere, Jacob encounters God and realizes God’s presence encompasses more that what just his eyes see.

    Last week, we looked at a central figure of the OT, Abram, later named Abraham. We talked about some of the similarities between the unknowns of Abrahams life, such as the lack of any information about his childhood, and that of Jesus and how little is know of his childhood. We discovered that ...read more

  • Wrestling With God

    Jacob wrestles with God and names the place "Peniel," meaning "face of God". Each of us needs our own "Peniel," a place to meet God. God gives us such a place, the Holy Bible.

    OPENING Talk about the courage to suffer: A first-grade teacher seated her students in a circle. She asked them what they wanted to be when they grew up. One by one, each child got up and announced, "I’d like to be a nurse like my mother," or "I want to be a banker like my father," or "I want ...read more

  • How To Be A Branch

     | 2,189 views

    Jesus speaks to His disciples describing the "Vine" and "branches." We branches are conduits passing on to others God’s grace as it flows through us. If we stay connected to the vine, God’s Grace passes through us on the way to someone in need and they wi

    How many folks here like to “savor the flavor” of a really good glass of wine? Wine is often associated with special events, and surely with fine meals. In fact, there has been quite a bit of evidence provided to show that a glass of red wine once a day is a heart healthy practice. When you ...read more

    Chances are most regular church attendees can rattle off the gist of John 3: 16…often called “the gospel in a nutshell.” There’s truth in that statement, but it may leave some with the assumption the rest of the Bible is just Commentary!

    Am I safe this morning to assume that even if you haven’t read it, or subscribe to it… you know what I’m talking about when I mention the New York Times? Of course, it is a well know newspaper and it’s been around for years. How many you have heard it referred to as “the gray lady.” It picked up ...read more

  • The Three R's - Reflect, Repent, Renew

    Lent is a time for reflection of our life with Jesus. Is it all it should be? Repent of our sins, our wrong ways and Renew our commitment to Jesus. Oh, and one other thing, don’t be ashamed of Christ!

    Well, here we are on the second Sunday of Lent. It is the time of year when we are called to reflect, repent and renew. This time of year is not always when we here the “feel good” messages we all like to hear…and as pastor’s are easier to preach. Still, even in these times, the times when we ...read more

  • The "Performance Art" Of God

    A different look at the story of The Flood and Rainbow. How the rainbow reminds us of God’s grace restrains Him from doing what He COULD do, but chooses NOT to do. What we learn from the story about judgment and justice.

    Is there anyone here this morning who hasn’t at least heard something about Noah and The Flood? Is there anyone here this morning who hasn’t heard at least something about “Noah’s Ark?” I’m willing to bet that when you think about Noah and the flood, your mind usually goes directly to the ...read more

  • It Is A Love Story

    Is the story about healing the Leper just about physical healing? Or is there more to the story? Most translations use the word "clean" ... not "healed." But could this "clean" mean "forgiveness" of sin? Mark Chapter 2 suggests it may be.

    I confess to you how I struggled with the scripture this morning. I struggled because when I first read this scripture, I wondered “how can I preach about this “healing” when I know we have people in our congregation who are good, faithful servants, disciples of Jesus Christ, yet who are suffering ...read more

  • The Baptism Of Jesus

     | 3,379 views

    A brief background about John the Baptizer, who was Mark, and why would Jesus have to be Baptized? This was preached on a Sunday morning when an adult Baptism was performed.

    The Baptism of Jesus This morning, we’ll begin taking a walk through the Gospel of Mark. It seems to me it’s probably a good idea to know a little about Mark as we begin this journey. And after we come to know a little more about Mark, we’ll look at what happened one day in a river long ago and ...read more

    There is often a misconception of the first disciples. Many are lead to believe they didn’t have anything to loose by following Jesus. Quite the opposite is true. These were successful businessmen,likely well educated and of fairly prominent social posi

    If you ever have, or every thought of opening your own business, you know there must be a plan. And you probably discovered what most entrepreneurs know … starting a business requires some help… and almost always, its from their friends.
