  • Why Struggles Are Worth The Trouble Series

    Contributed by Kevin Cummins on Jul 18, 2008
    based on 6 ratings

    James gives us some good reasons why we really should embrace the storms in our lives. Without the storms we would be weak and incomplete.

    Two men were walking through a field one day when they spotted an enraged bull. Instantly they darted toward the nearest fence. The storming bull followed in hot pursuit, and it was soon apparent they wouldn’t make it. Terrified, the one shouted to the other, "Put up a prayer, John. We’re in for more

  • Why We Call It Good Friday

    Contributed by Kevin Cummins on Apr 7, 2008
    based on 8 ratings

    The day we call "Good Friday" was a pretty gruesome day. So how can we call it "Good Friday"? I believe we have four reasons why we can.

    Here we are again gathered for what we call a “Good Friday” service. I’ve always thought as a kid and even into young adulthood that it was such an odd name for this day. After all what happened on that day in so many ways wasn’t good, it was a tragedy. There was an innocent man railroaded. more

    Here is one for the teachers in the crowd today! It was at the end of the school year, and a kindergarten teacher was receiving gifts from her pupils. The florists son handed her a gift. She shook it, held it overhead, and said, "I bet I know what it is. Some flowers." more

  • Love Is Patient Series

    based on 25 ratings

    One of the most difficult areas to show patience in is our relationships with others. But that is exactly what God’s Word calls us to have in our relationships. Because love is patient.

    “Did you hear about the teacher who was helping one of her kindergarten students put on his boots? He asked for help and she could see why? With her pulling and him pushing, the boots still didn’t want to go on. When the second boot was on, she had worked up a sweat. She almost whimpered when more

  • Could You Men Not Keep Watch With Me For One Hour Series

    Contributed by Kevin Cummins on Jul 29, 2004
    based on 46 ratings

    This sermon looks at how we fall into a spiritual slumber

    A gentleman told of an experience that he had. He said, “I was recently driving all night to get to a far-away destination. By morning I still had some distance to travel, but was getting very tired. I decided to stop at the next city I came to and park somewhere quiet to catch an hour or two of more

  • Why Are You Talking About Having No Bread? Series

    Contributed by Kevin Cummins on Apr 22, 2004
    based on 38 ratings

    The disciples had allowed themselves to become so distracted that they missed the message Jesus was trying to give to them. Sometimes we allow the same thing to happen in our lives.

    According to the president of the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety 1.2 million crashes a year are caused by driver distractions. Of course we all know that with the way cell phones have taken over in our society that cell phones are definitely a distraction for many drivers. But to my surprise more

    based on 54 ratings

    This sermon looks at why "Lord" needs to be more than a word on our tongue.

    “One afternoon author Patsy Clairmont found herself on an airplane, sitting next to a young man. She writes, ‘I had already observed something about this young man when I was being seated. He called me ‘Ma’am.’ at the time I thought, ‘Either he thinks I’m ancient, or he’s from the South more

    This sermon teaches us how to be made well by looking at the story of Jesus asking the man who had been an invalid for thirty-eight years, "Do you want to get well?"

    “A father and son went fishing one summer day. While they were out in their boat, the boy suddenly became curious about the world around him. He asked his father, ‘Dad, how does this boat float?’ The father replied, ‘Don’t rightly know son.’ A little later, the boy looked at his father and more

  • The True Fellowship Of The Church Series

    Contributed by Kevin Cummins on Sep 4, 2003
    based on 62 ratings

    In an atmosphere of false teachings that sought to confuse the church and split it. John writes here about the true fellowship of the church and how we can recognize it.

    Today I want to begin a series on the book of I John. It is believed by most that John, the disciple whom Jesus loved, was the author of this letter. He wrote this letter before he was exiled to the island of Patmos. Many put the date at around 85-90 A.D., which is real close to the date that more

  • Into Your Hands I Commit My Spirit Series

    Today we come to the last statement of our series on the Seven Statements from the Cross. We’ve seen a wide array of theological truths that have the power to transform our lives. We’ve seen Christ asking the Father to forgive the very people who at the time were mocking him and had beat and more

  • "It Is Finished" Series

    Contributed by Kevin Cummins on Jun 16, 2003
    based on 54 ratings

    "It is finished" is one of the most familiar statements that Jesus made from the Cross. But what does that statement from Jesus on the cross made so long ago mean to us today?

    Last week we saw in Jesus his physical and spiritual agony as he said, “I am thirsty.” In that statement we saw that Christ indeed did indeed experience the things that we did physically. He knew what it was like to have a thirst, he had experienced dehydration. He didn’t have some phantom body more

  • The Journey Every Christian Should Make Series

    Contributed by Kevin Cummins on Jun 16, 2003
    based on 39 ratings

    In this passage as John writes to the different age groups maybe chronilogically and spiritually, we see three different destinations that every Christian should reach on their Christian journey.

    So far as we have been going through the book of I John we have seen different tests and indications that you can know that you truly belong to Christ. Once again these tests were to reveal the false teachings that were going on and bring comfort and reassurance to those in the true church more

  • "I Thirst" Series

    Contributed by Kevin Cummins on Jun 12, 2003
    based on 244 ratings

    "I thirst" is a statement from the cross that was only recorded by John in his gospel. I believe there was at least three reasons why God inspired to John to record that statment. This sermons looks at those three reasons.

    Last week our fourth statement from the cross that we looked at was perhaps the most agonizing statement of all. I believe as Christ took on the sins of the world, that sin that was upon Him separated Him from His Father and in that time of spiritual agony He cried out, “My God, my God, why more

  • "Dear Woman, Here Is Your Son" Series

    Contributed by Kevin Cummins on May 5, 2003
    based on 58 ratings

    This statement speaks of the love and responsibility Jesus felt for his mother. But I also challenge you to see this from a different angle. His total obedience also showed the cost that total obedience can have on the family. We also see the cost of o

    Today we come to the third week of our seven week series on the Statements from the Cross. Last week our statement was, “I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise.” A wonderful statement about salvation and what awaits those who put their trust and faith in Christ. We more
