  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: Borrow all you want. These are for the glory of God, and if you can use them that way, give Him the glory. I have tried as much as possible to give credit where credit is due, but I’m not perfect, so if you see something someone else has used, well, I saw no need to re-invent the wheel, and I just failed to acknowledge the source. It was not intentional. Email me, and I’ll gladly make the changes.

  • Choices: Life Or Death

    Contributed on Jul 3, 2018
     | 775 views

    The most important choice we'll ever make in life is the choice between life or death. When we choose Jesus, we choose life. It's always the best choice.

    We’ve journeyed five weeks together exploring some of the choices we have to make in life. The choices we’ve explored are purpose or popularity, surrender or control, discipline or regret and important or urgent. Each are important choices, and the one we choose ultimately determines the course and ...read more

  • Choices: Important Or Urgent

     | 1,420 views

    All things urgent are not necessarily important. If we don't know what is important, everything will seem urgent.

    We’re winding down our message series entitled Choices—only this week and one more week to go in the series. We’ve explored the choices of purpose or popularity, surrender or control, discipline or regret and next week, we’ll talk about the choice of life or death. But, today, we explore choosing ...read more

    One significant choice we must make in life is to choose discipline. Otherwise, we'll live with the regret of that decision.

    We continue our message series entitled “Choices” this morning. We said as we began this series that we are the sum total of all the choices we’ve made in our lives until today. Going forward, the choices we make will shape the person we become. We’ve looked at choosing purpose over popularity and ...read more

     | 1,869 views

    We can choose to control every aspect of our lives, or we can choose to surrender that control to the Lord. The choice we make will determine our eternal future.

    We began last week by saying that we are the sum total of the choices we’ve made in life until today, and that what we will be in the future will depend on the choices we make today and subsequently. Last week, we looked at choosing purpose over popularity. This week, we’re going to look at the ...read more

  • Choices: Purpose Or Popularity

     | 883 views

    Will we choose purpose over popularity. The answer makes all the difference in the world.

    Who are we? Basically, we are the sum total of all the choices we’ve made in our lives up until this point. Granted, when we were children, there were choices made on our behalf, but since we’ve become adults we have to own our choices. Who do we want to be tomorrow? The answer to that question is ...read more
