  • The Beginning

    Contributed by Kerry Haynes on Apr 21, 2019
    based on 1 rating
     | 216 views

    On Good Friday, all hope was lost. Yet, Easter Sunday brought hope, forgiveness, and life to all who would choose Jesus as Lord. He is risen, and he rises us to new life as well!

  • The End

    We see three responses to Jesus' death: despair, deliberation from a distance, and conversion. Which group do you most identify with? The cross confronts us with a decision.

    Luke 23:44-49 The End Have you ever felt like you’re at a dead end? Like you didn’t really know how to go forward? Maybe you were in a dead-end relationship. Or a dead-end job. Or a dead-end health prognosis. It can be a very hard place to be. Today we’re going to start at the end. But don’t ...read more

    Mary, the sister of Lazarus, points us to reckless worship that is costly, active, personal, and sometimes judged.

    At the cross, Jesus exchanged his righteousness for our sin. God invited us to give him our sin to be forever erased. And God called us to be his spokespeople, to share this good news with others.

    2 Corinthians 5:17-21 God’s Ambassadors We are about three weeks away from Easter! You know, the nice thing about being a little senile is that you can hide your own Easter eggs, and then have fun finding them. Easter’s coming soon, and it’s about a lot more than just Easter eggs, although those ...read more

  • Debunking The Just World Theory

    based on 1 rating
     | 612 views

    Who do bad things happen to good people? There are no easy answers; yet Jesus teaches there is not always a direct link between misfortune and sin. And every calamity is a wake-up all for all of us.

    Luke 13:1-9 Debunking the Just World Theory In a “Calvin and Hobbes” comic strip sometime back, Calvin says to his dad, “Why can't I stay up late? You guys can!” Then with a wide-mouthed protest he declares, “IT'S NOT FAIR!” His dad replies, “The world isn't fair, Calvin.” Walking away ...read more

  • Our Part In Salvation

    Contributed by Kerry Haynes on Mar 17, 2019
    based on 1 rating
     | 820 views

    What is our part in being saved? Early in the Bible we discover we are saved by faith alone, through God's grace and not our own works. As Christians we live every day thankful for God's grace.

  • Letting Jesus Shine Through

    When Moses spent time with God, his face radiated God's glory. When we spend time with God, we too will radiate God's glory. People will notice. And the glory we radiate--unlike Moses'--will never fade.

  • Extreme Love

     | 1,561 views

    Jesus calls us to an extreme love, to even love our enemies. He calls us to lay down our rights for revenge, and shows us that God has already given us that kind of love, while we were God's enemy.

  • The Pursuit Of Happiness

     | 2,597 views

    Our world wants so deperately to be happy. Here, in the first, psalm, God gives us the recipe: choose your friends carefully, devote yourself to his word, and allow him to plant you into spiritual maturity so that all you do will bring about kingdom success.

  • Love That's Out Of This World

    Contributed by Kerry Haynes on Feb 10, 2019
    based on 1 rating
     | 2,498 views

    Our world is really into lust, not love. God's kind of love is all about giving, doing what is best for the other person. Jesus is the best model of that. And God is the very definition of it. God's love can flow through us to a needy world.

  • All Or Nothing Faith

    based on 1 rating
     | 3,946 views

    When Jesus shows up at Peter's work, Jesus destroys the artificial divide between sacred and secular. Wherever the Lord is, is ripe for a miracle. And if our life belongs to the Lord, he is welcome to any and all of it.

    All or Nothing Faith Luke 5:1-11 We have this artificial divide in our world between “sacred” and “secular,” between things that are of God and everything else. And so often we fall into the trap of holding God aloof from most of our life. He can have the Sunday morning church service, and perhaps ...read more

    Paul uses the human body to illustrate three wrong attitudes Christians sometimes hold onto, and how to move past them toward unity in diversity.

  • Water To Wine

    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

  • The Angels’ Song Series

    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
