  • Water To Wine

    Contributed by Kerry Haynes on Jan 20, 2019
    based on 1 rating
     | 33 views

    In his first miracle in a little town called Cana, Jesus shows that God moves in the ordinary parts of our lives to bring about the extraordinary, all in an effort to build our faith in him.

    Water to Wine John 2:1-11 January 20, 2019 I love the fact that Jesus did his first miracle at a wedding in a small Galilee town called Cana. Verse 1 introduces the story by stating, “On the third day a wedding took place...” A couple of weeks ago I officiated the wedding of one of our ...read more

  • Baptism By Fire

    In Jesus' baptism, we find him as Soverign, Servant, and Savior. As we accept his salvation, we discover God's same message to us: “You are my child, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.”

    Baptism by Fire Luke 3:15-17, 21-22 Today’s story is all about Jesus’ baptism. I could tell you some funny baptism stories. As a Baptist minister, I’ve done lots of baptisms. It’s in our name, you know! I remember one morning I checked the baptistery, and the water was too hot! Now that was a new ...read more

    Birth announcements can engage us. In Luke 2:11, God speaks through an angel to offer hope at Christmas. And Christmas is really all about Easter, that God loves us enough to offer salvation through his son Jesus.

    Christmas Music 3: The Angels’ Song Luke 2:8-14 December 23, 2018 People have a lot of fun with birth announcements. I remember many years ago calling my wife's parents in Italy and telling them they had a little grandson. What joy! Now people even have gender reveals at ...read more

  • Zechariah’s Song Series

     | 711 views

    As kids we can't wait for Christmas to arrive. As adults, it rushes up on us. God planned Christmas a long time ago, and for a very special reason. When Zechariah finally found his tongue, he sang a song of praise that reminds us of the true meaning of Christmas.

    Christmas Music 2: Zechariah’s Song Luke 1:67-79 12/16/18 When I was a little kid, I couldn’t wait for Christmas to get here. It seemed like the days dragged by, one by one, and the anticipation built to where I practically couldn’t stand it. Now...well, today, I thought, “Holy cow, ...read more

    Mary reacted with praise to Elizabeth's welcome of her and the Savior within her womb. In her praise, she teaches us to praise God for: 1. Doing great things for us. 2. Giving mercy to those who fear him, and 3. Keeping his promises.

    The Advent season is all about Jesus coming to earth. And he's coming again! Jesus reminds us to watch for the signs of his return, to live with purpose, and to pray.

    Luke 21:25-36 I’ll Be Back! Every year children from around the world eagerly anticipate the arrival of Christmas morning. Retailers push their sales upon us. Consumers invest hundreds of thousands of dollars to bring happiness in others. And the countdown begins: 23 days of shopping ‘til ...read more

  • Cultivating An Attitude Of Gratitude

    based on 1 rating
     | 765 views

    Psalm 126 captures the Israelites' thanksgiving for God's miraculous provision in the past, their need for God now, and their faith that God will come through for them in the future. It is our song as well: God has done great things for us!

    Psalm 126 Cultivating an Attitude of Gratitude What’s the worst thing that ever happened to you? Think for a moment about that. Some of you will undoubtedly think about losing a spouse or losing a child or grandchild, and the void left in your heart. Some will think about going to war. Some might ...read more

  • Check Your Motive

    Contributed by Kerry Haynes on Nov 11, 2018
    based on 1 rating
     | 698 views

    Jesus contrasts the Teachers of the Law with the poor widow. In the former, we see people more interested in themselves than in God; hypocrites, pretending to be something they were not. In the latter, we see a lady who loved God authentically and completely.

    Check Your Motive Mark 12:38-44 In March 2009 Bernie Madoff pled guilty to running the largest Ponzi scheme in history. Bernie’s last name is appropriate, because he literally “made off” with billions of dollars belonging to his investors. A Ponzi scheme is pretty simple in concept: you convince ...read more

    In Jesus' interaction with the Teacher of the Law, he teaches us to love God first and foremost, draw from that love to love others around us, and trust our lives to the author of love.

  • Jesus Our High Priest

    based on 1 rating
     | 621 views

    Jesus is our great high priest. In him we have a permanent salvation, which gives us eternal security. We also have a perfect sacrifice, complete with nothing needed for our salvation.

    Jesus our High Priest Hebrews 7:23-28 At the VA hospital where I work during the week, we always have a chaplain on call, ready to respond in case of emergency. Our student chaplains carry the phone most of the time, but sometimes I get the important task. It’s nice to have a chaplain ready to ...read more

     | 870 views

    Monologue of the elderly apostle John, as he looks back at today's story and considers lessons learned on servant leadership.

    Mark 10:35-45 Bottom-up Leadership My name is John. Yes, that John, one of Jesus’ twelve, in fact, the one he loved the most. At least that’s the way I always felt. I’m in my late ’80s now. I know that’s nothing for many of you, but for my time, that’s an extremely long life. All of my battle ...read more

  • Childlike Faith

    based on 1 rating
     | 1,201 views

    Jesus calls us to become like a little child if we ever hope to enter the kingdom of God. We must have faith like a little child, become dependent like a little child, and receive the kingdom as a gift of God.

    Childlike Faith Mark 10:13-16 Have you ever known someone who refused to grow up? Kind of like when Tom Hanks played a kid in the 1988 movie, “Big”? Except sometimes, it’s not so cute, when adults act childish. Sometimes adults forget those key lessons from kindergarten, like learning how to share ...read more

     | 1,083 views

    When we're truly saved, we will always belong to Jesus. So what does he mean when he says to lose an arm or a leg or gouge out an eye of it's keeping you from heaven? Jesus calls us to radical obedience.

    Mark 9:43-48 Radical Obedience What kind of dedication does it take to be a terrorist? Seriously, think about this for a minute. How dedicated would you have to be to fly an airplane into a skyscraper? Or to strap explosives to your body and walk into a market? We certainly don’t condone these ...read more

  • High On God Series

    Contributed by Kerry Haynes on Sep 16, 2018
    based on 1 rating
     | 1,311 views

    God wants us to live deliberately and to yield all control to God. Anything else is a cheap substitute. Nothing else fulfills us. When we are "high on God" (filled with the Spirit), all kinds of special things happen.

    High on God Ephesians 5:15-20 We just came from a state that has legalized marijuana use. And you see it everywhere, particularly on the only road to the beach where we used to live. Cannabis Center. The Weed Shack. It’s there for the buying. (Sorry, I didn’t bring home any souvenirs!) Why do ...read more

    The spiritual world is real. Evil battles good. We need to go into battle only in God's power. And Paul uses armor to describe entering into fervent prayer.
