  • "Living Under Pressure"

    Contributed by Don Baggett on Aug 14, 2011
    based on 1 rating
     | 5,791 views

    Jesus gave us an example of how to get through every kind of pressure, and He has provided for us to live abundant lives.

    If you look at the title that I have assigned to this passage of Scripture, you will immediately know that this message is going to be relevant to you. Regardless of who you are and what you do, I would venture to say that you know what it is to feel the pressures of life crowding in on you. One ...read more

  • Abounding Grace

    Contributed by Don Baggett on Jul 9, 2010
    based on 4 ratings
     | 2,300 views

    We have all been recipients of grace. We are to exercise grace. Joseph gives us a great example of a man who did just that.

    Outside the Lord Himself, Joseph is one of the best examples of the Bible characters for acting right and having the right kind of attitudes in bad situations. Joseph had some bad things happen to him, but he just kept on doing right and thinking right. His brothers were jealous of him, and ...read more

  • The Faith Decision Of Moses

    Contributed by Don Baggett on Jul 9, 2010
    based on 1 rating
     | 1,414 views

    Faith is the necessary element to receive anything from God. It is not always logical, but when it is based on God's word, it is always right.

    The words, "by faith," are seen many times in Hebrews 11. Hebrews 10:38 says that the just shall live by faith, then chapter 11 gives examples of those who did, and the first few verses of chapter 12 admonish us to be faith people, also. This section begins by talking about the faith of Moses' ...read more

  • The Faith Of The People

    Most of the time, the Hebrew people haven't demonstrated a lot of faith. In the wilderness, they were constantly murmuring, but in this text, God speaks of their faith.

    “The Faith of the People” Hebrews 11:29-30 When you think about the Hebrew people that Moses led through the wilderness for 40 years, you don’t think of them as being “faith people.” And, they really weren’t. The Bible tells us that all those, who were ...read more

  • A Picture Of Jesus

    Contributed by Don Baggett on Jun 28, 2010
    based on 1 rating
     | 2,299 views

    The Bible is about Jesus, and there are many pictures of Him, even in the Old Testament where His name is not given. This message shows how Joseph is a picture of Jesus.

    I heard a preacher say that Jesus is on every page of the Bible, even when His name is not called, and if you read a page and don’t find Jesus, you need to read it again, because the Bible is about Jesus. I agree with that. Today, I want you to see some ways that Joseph gives us a picture ...read more

  • Forgiveness

    Contributed by Don Baggett on Apr 9, 2010
    based on 4 ratings
     | 4,199 views

    Forgiveness is not an option for the Christian, it is a command. There are good and bad consequences when we forgive, and when we fail to forgive.

    Jesus had just given some detailed instructions about how to deal with a person who does you wrong. In v18, He says that heaven will back the person up who follows these instructions. This brought a question to the disciples' minds, and as usually was the case, Peter was the spokesman for them, ...read more

  • It's Time To Wake Up

    Contributed by Don Baggett on Mar 18, 2010
    based on 3 ratings
     | 5,534 views

    God expects His people to produce good fruit, and He gives this example as a warning for His people to wake up.

    The superscription at the top of the page in my Bible says, "A parable of a vineyard." Parables use an obvious situation to bring out a far deeper truth. It has been said that "Parables are earthly stories with heavenly meanings." Let me give you something about the setting of Isaiah 5. When ...read more

  • Unchanged

    Contributed by Don Baggett on Mar 12, 2010
    based on 3 ratings
     | 1,701 views

    There are some things that will never change, but there are some things that ought to change immediately.

    In this one little verse, the Lord God makes a wonderful, comforting statement about Himself. He says, "I do not change." There is a very simple reason why God never changes, and that is that is already perfect. He cannot become more perfect, therefore, He never changes. His word doesn't ...read more

  • Get Your Heart Right

    Contributed by Don Baggett on Mar 5, 2010
    based on 11 ratings
     | 5,955 views

    The real problem that we face in this world today is a problem in the hearts of the people of God.

    If I told you there are many problems in this world, I wouldn't be telling you anything that you don't already know. You can categorize the problems anyway you wish, but when it comes right down to the lowest common denominator, and if we are willing to accept the Bible, it is a problem of God's ...read more

  • God's Discipline

    Contributed by Don Baggett on Oct 20, 2009
    based on 3 ratings
     | 3,127 views

    We have to discipline our children, and sometimes the things they do are so funny, we have to hold back our laughter in the midst of discipline. There’s nothing funny about the sin that God’s people commit against Him.

    People are funny, and the funniest people, in my judgement are children. As much as we love our children, we soon find out that they require discipline. When my oldest son was born, I took his picture with me to show people. I showed it to an elderly black lady, and I’ll never forget what she ...read more

  • Given To Christ

    Contributed by Don Baggett on Jan 7, 2009
    based on 2 ratings
     | 1,133 views

    Some things are valuable, not for their intrinsic value, but because of who gave them. We have been given to Christ by the Father.

    “Given To Christ” Jn.17:6-12 I had the joy of leading a middle aged man to the Lord, about 25 years ago, who had been a pretty rough character. He had the reputation for being about all the things the devil would lead a fellow to be. When the Lord saved him, his life made a pretty fast turn ...read more

  • Glorify The Father

    Contributed by Don Baggett on Dec 31, 2008
    based on 5 ratings
     | 2,379 views

    The foundation of all things is the glory of God. Jesus glorified the Father by completing the work He was given to do. We glorify Him the same way.

    John 17 is a prayer of Jesus, for His followers. Verse 20 is an extremely important and wonderful verse, which tells us that this prayer is not just for the little flock of disciples that followed Jesus along the roads of Palestine, but this prayer is for us, also. Isn’t it wonderful when people ...read more

  • Jesus Is God

    Contributed by Don Baggett on Dec 7, 2008
    based on 1 rating
     | 761 views

    the story of Christmas is that the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory. The Word is the outward expression of God. The Baby in the manger was God made flesh.

    The Christmas story is about Jesus. Now, I doubt that there is anyone here who really needed to be told that, but we all have to admit that it’s pretty difficult to keep the focus there. Actually, I think there is a fine line between what’s pleasing and not pleasing in the way we celebrate. ...read more

  • Defining The Gospel

    Contributed by Don Baggett on Nov 23, 2008
    based on 1 rating
     | 1,170 views

    We know the word gospel means good news. Is the good news that Jesus made some sort of down payment for the salvation of sinners, or did He pay it all? That’s the very question that had to be answered in the first century church of Antioch, and that’s t

    The word “gospel” means good news. We know the heart of the gospel is the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ, but what exactly is the good news about that? Is it that Jesus did what He did as sort of a down payment, and then we have to keep up the installments of our salvation by doing ...read more

  • From Throning To Stoning

    Paul and Barnabus didn’t know it, but they had jumped from the frying pan to the fire! They came to Lystra and began preaching the gospel. At first people wanted to sacrifice to them as gods, but then turned on them, stoned Paul, and left him for dead.

    Paul and Barnabus didn’t know it, but they had jumped from the frying pan to the fire! They came to Lystra and began preaching the gospel. Faith to Be Healed They went to the market place everyday and preached. They were street preachers! There was a man there who was crippled. Notice the ...read more
