  • How To Endure To The End Series

    Contributed by James Wallace on May 4, 2021

    Jesus assured us in the Parable of the Sower that people falling away from the faith would be a regular part of our experience. However, we certainly don't want it to be our personal experience! An oft-ignored & challenging warning tells us how we can prevent that possibility.

    As we have made our way through the book of Hebrews, the single New Testament book devoted to the topic of Christians who are tempted or actually do fall away from the faith, I naturally have been led to sadly contemplate those Christians I have known who have fallen away. These, tragically, were more

  • The Bottom Line: How To Be Faithful To Jesus Series

    Contributed by James Wallace on Apr 28, 2021

    The Heart of the Message to the Hebrews is how to be faithful to Jesus. How can we demonstrate in practical ways our faithfulness to Jesus in light of His faithfulness to us?

    I had an unexpected very emotional experience this past week. At a little after 6 on Tuesday morning I came to page 884, the last page of probably the longest book I have ever read apart from the Bible. As I’ve mentioned previously, I have been reading the massive scholarly work written by more

  • Your Response To The Word Of Christ Series

    Contributed by James Wallace on Apr 19, 2021

    How do you respond to the Word of Jesus? Is following Jesus an obedience-optional exercise for you? If it is, you stand to lose a great blessing--the freedom that only being a true follower of Jesus can provide.

    Last week I asked you a critical question: What must a person believe, in particular about Christ, to be sure of going to heaven The answer, of course, is that person must believe He is God, very God of very God, the God-Man. This morning I’m going to ask you another compelling question: What more

  • How To Successfully Navigate Life Series

    Contributed by James Wallace on Apr 19, 2021

    Walking in the dark can be a dangerous thing, both physically and spiritually. Jesus explains that He is the light that shines in the darkness. How can we all appropriate that light to show the way in our own lives?

    How many of you out there have ever had any experience with sleep-walking? I imagine we could all share some interesting stories about our sleep-walking experiences. But since I’ve got the floor this morning, you get to hear about mine. I have actually walked in my sleep only about three times more

  • How To Deal With Sin And Guilt Series

    Contributed by James Wallace on Apr 19, 2021

    Many options in the religious and secular world are given for how to deal with our everyday experience of sin, the guilt it brings and the dread of potential ultimate condemnation. The Book of Hebrews is adamant that there is only one solution for sin, and no other substitutes.

    The great American psychiatrist Karl Menninger, author of the book, Whatever Became of Sin, once stated that if he could convince patients in psychiatric hospitals that their sins were forgiven, 75% of them could walk out the next day. His statement underscores the struggle that all of us human more

  • The Last Will And Testament Of Jesus Christ Series

    Contributed by James Wallace on Apr 13, 2021
    based on 1 rating

    The New Covenant is in effect the last and will and testament of the Lord Jesus Christ. Christ's redemption under the New Covenant saves even Old Covenant believers. No new sacrifices are needed!

    Sixty–seven-year-old Tomas Martinez was living on the street in Santa Cruz de le Sierra, Bolivia, when he was approached by police officers who had good news for him. His ex-wife (whom he had abandoned years earlier) had died and had left him her fortune of $6 million. However, Martinez thought the more

  • Making Sense Of The Resurrection Series

    Contributed by James Wallace on Apr 5, 2021
    based on 1 rating

    When the apostles first heard of the resurrection of Jesus, the words seemed as nonsense to them. How can you make sense of the Resurrection? Take the four steps they did!

    Luke 24:8-35; 44-46 Main Idea: RE: Jesus’ Resurrection: Investigate, Evaluate, Believe & Adjust Your Life Accordingly For the last 6 months, I’ve been somewhat obsessed with the supernatural—miracles in history. I know they’ve happened; I know they happen today, and I’ve had some happen more

  • What The World Needs Now Series

    Contributed by James Wallace on Mar 31, 2021

    What the World Needs Now "is love, sweet, love." But what does that kind of love look like, especially in the context of the great sin? Jesus provides us with a powerful lesson about the kind of love we need to receive and offer to others.

    Most of us here are familiar with that hit song written by Burt Bacharach, “What the World Needs Now.” And of course, as bad as I am with notes, I’m even worse with lyrics, but in this case, I do remember the next few words—“Is love, sweet, love.” And admittedly, the song strikes a chord with more

  • The Key To Heaven: Christ's Sacrifice Series

    Contributed by James Wallace on Mar 29, 2021

    What was the Old Covenant really all about? Did the Old Testament sacrificial system really take away sins? Why isn't Judaism also a way to be right with God? Hebrews 9:1-14 settles these issues, once and for all.

    This last year has been a revelation—a revelation about how you deal with a very contagious and infectious virus that has impacted the entire world and killed millions of people. The big question this past year has been this: How do you stop the virus? How do you prevent it’s spread? How do more

  • How To Reach Out For Jesus Series

    Contributed by James Wallace on Mar 24, 2021

    Jesus persistently reached out to unbelievers despite the dangers to Himself. His commitment to this cause and creativity doing so challenges us to do the same, especially around major Christian holidays.

  • What A Deal! Series

    Contributed by James Wallace on Mar 22, 2021

    The New Covenant is an incredible deal available to us from the Lord. It has made the Old Covenant obsolete, and when we consider it, it is a deal we cannot afford to pass up!

    My wife Jeanie is a shopper par excellence! She loves to shop. But what she loves to shop for is the great deal—she loves finding and getting something of great value for pennies on the dollar. So she’s an expert garage saler. She’s always checking out the sale racks at the back of stores. more

  • How To Make Right Choices About Spiritual Issues Series

    Contributed by James Wallace on Mar 16, 2021

    Jesus obviously provided a wisdom which is from above about how people would know the truth, and how they should seek the truth. Much of that is provided in John 7.

    Back when I was in college I was involved with Campus Crusade for Christ. And I think it was my senior year when CCC invited a staff member by the name of Dick Day to come and speak on Love, Sex and Marriage. And Campus Crusade had a very flashy sort of ministry. They advertised that a special more

  • One Priest, One Sacrifice, Once For All Series

    Contributed by James Wallace on Mar 14, 2021

    Do we really need multiple mortal human priest to grant us access to God? What about those churches that claim we do? Hebrews 7:18-28 provides us with a definitive answer.

    Have any of you gotten any unwanted phone calls this week? Yes, I assume all of you have! Have any of you gotten any scam calls this week? Yes, those things have become as daily an experience as most any other part of our lives. Have you gotten the one from someone who sounds like they’re more

  • Breaking Point: Faith That Saves Vs. Faith That Doesn't Series

    Contributed by James Wallace on Mar 10, 2021

    At the height of popularity, Jesus makes hard statements that thin the crowds. He says many of his disciples didn't really believe. And they fell away. What's the difference between the faith that saves and the kind of faith that doesn't? This story reveals that truth.

    I’m sure that there are many of us here who have known or encountered people who were strong Christians from everything we could tell, but who have, for one reason or another, fallen away from the faith. They no longer claim to believe, they do not practice what Christ taught, they no longer more

  • Dealing Wisely With Unbelief & Opposition Series

    Contributed by James Wallace on Mar 10, 2021

    If we stand for Jesus, we will inevitably face the same kind of opposition that He did. How do we respond? His example gives us a clue as he faces both the unbelief of his own family, and the deadly opposition of israel's leaders.

    It’s been more than 20 years ago now since I initiated a lawsuit in the name of the church against the Washoe County School District. As a few of you know, and even fewer of you probably remember, it was about the matter of Equal Access—equal access to public school facilities for churches and more
