    based on 3 ratings
     | 6,719 views

    This is a sermon that focuses primarily on Amos 8, looking at how a deficiency of the Word of God plays out in our lives individually and as a culture.

    Amos has always seemed to me like a man I could enjoy being around. He was plain spoken, and to the point. He was the kind of guy who appreciated hard work. Amos was a shepherd. He didn’t shepherd those pretty, fluffy white sheep. Based on the word used, he worked with a really ugly, ...read more

    This is an expository sermon based on John 5, utilizing a narrative style. Sometimes we seek out fake solutions to our problems because perhaps we don’t like the implications of what being healed might require of us.

    Everybody likes to hear stories about people like Dustin Carter. Dustin was born a normal, healthy baby, but when he was 5 years old, he suffered a bacterial blood infection. As a result of this blood infection, most of his limbs had to be amputated. Like anyone else would feel, Dustin first ...read more

    This is a short devotional talk beginning with the Greek god Kairos, who represents the fleeting nature of opportunity, and using an understanding of Kairos to inform our reading of Ephesians 5:8-20 where Paul presents several things that are urgent for C

    In Greek, there are at least a couple of different words that mean “Time.” - Kronos – This is the word you use when you talk about the clock. It is a sequential word, where we get words like “Chronology” or “Chronological”. It’s a word about Order. - Kairos – This is the word I want to examine ...read more

  • Bowing To The Great Idol Of Self

    Contributed by Mark Adams on Jan 13, 2007
    based on 4 ratings
     | 3,173 views

    The OT has a lot of interesting stories about idolatry, but is that really just a problem of the past? This sermon addresses the very real problem that our culture has in worshiping our own desires above all else.

    To the reader: What inspired this sermon was a quote I read in R.C. Ortlund’s book, When God Comes To Church, p. 194. "Self is the great idol standing at the center of our conceptual world, to which all bow low. We even have a duty-to-self ethic, as if self-denial were harmful, immoral, and ...read more

    based on 24 ratings

    This sermon relies heavily on a visual illustration. It is based on the passage in 2 Cor. 3 which says we are letters from God. It calls for serious dedication to living for Christ.
