  • Feeling The Wrath

    Contributed on May 26, 2009
    based on 11 ratings

    How many times have you heard a sermon on the wrath of God? Not that many, I imagine. It was a great experience to both write and preach this sermon and to see the results.

    FEELING THE WRATH I want to read to you this morning from a sermon with some very vivid imagery. Imagine someone preaching this material to you and consider your response: “Your wickedness makes you as it were heavy as lead, and to tend downwards with great weight and pressure towards hell; more

  • Knowing The God Who Loves You

    Contributed on May 26, 2009
    based on 1 rating

    The love of God is the best known attribute and probably the least understood. And when we grasp the love of God in part, what are we supposed to do next?

    KNOWING THE GOD WHO LOVES YOU Ask anyone what they know of God and you will receive a common answer: God is love. And when I say “ask anyone” I literally mean “anyone.” Do a survey at Portage and Main in Winnipeg and ask people what they think of God and chances are pretty good most people will more

  • God: No Change, Know Hope

    Contributed on May 5, 2009
    based on 14 ratings

    This series explores the person of God and seeks to know him better. In this introduction we study the immutability of God, his unchanging nature.

    GOD: NO CHANGE, KNOW HOPE Marriage counselors teach us that there are two words that couples should never use: “always” and “never.” These two words have such absolute meaning no one could ever possibly be one or the other. A husband could say that his wife is always nagging him to fix more

  • Knowing God: The Source Of Wisdom

    Contributed on May 5, 2009
    based on 4 ratings

    The writer of Job explains to us the difference between human wisdom and the wisdom that comes from God. How do we find wisdom?

    KNOWING GOD: THE SOURCE OF WISDOM Why do we need wisdom? Someone said that knowledge is the ability to take something apart; wisdom is needed to put it back together again. I am not sure where that saying came from but I think it makes partial sense. A young man in our congregation told me more

  • Who Do You See Upon The Cross?

    Contributed on Apr 14, 2009
    based on 4 ratings

    Good Friday: Behold the man; behold the king; behold your God. Gaze upon the man upon the cross and ask yourself "who do you see?"

    WHO DO YOU SEE UPON THE CROSS? I have made it a tradition these last four years or so to watch Mel Gibson’s movie The Passion. As Easter comes around each year I use tools like this movie to meditate upon what Jesus did for us. This year, however, something strange happened. For our movie more

  • In God's Economy, Ownership Is Very Different. ...

    Contributed on Jul 27, 2007

    “In God’s economy, ownership is very different. The Bible tells us that we are here for but a moment, that our lives are a puff of smoke. I have never seen a hearse pulling a U-Haul. Mother Theresa is merciless on this theme. She said that “if you have two jackets, one belongs to the poor.” This more

  • I Choose Not To Be Arrogant Nor To Put My Hope In ...

    Contributed on Jul 27, 2007
    based on 2 ratings

    I choose not to be arrogant nor to put my hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put my hope in God, who richly provides me with everything for my enjoyment. I choose to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. I choose to lay up treasures in heaven that more
