  • What Does Jesus Want Us To Remember?

    Contributed by Mark Haines on Sep 11, 2011
    based on 20 ratings
     | 11,543 views

    The phrase "in remembrance of me" is familiar to Christians everywhere. It is carved into most communion tables or altars. It's repeated as often as our churches observe the Lord’s Supper. But what does this phrase mean?

    Text: For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you: The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, “This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way, after supper he took the ...read more

  • Trust Above Your Circumstances

    Contributed by Mark Haines on Apr 22, 2011
    based on 5 ratings
     | 2,355 views

    Our faith tends to rise and fall based on our circumstances. The more pain we feel the more doubt we express. But Jesus, even as he died on the cross, rose about his feelings of abandonment and entrusted his spirit into the Father’s care.

    Introduction: I saw an article recently entitled, “God’s Friday.” That makes far more sense to me than “Good Friday.” There is nothing good about what happened to Jesus in and around Jerusalem about 2000 years ago. 1. Jesus’ Circumstances • Satan and ...read more

     | 1,518 views

    Sometimes you may feel like there's no hope of ever enjoying life again, but God’s grace provides more than enough life and blessings for you and for all people. There is hope and restoration because of Jesus' death on the cross.

    Series Introduction: We are counting down to Easter. It’s the highest day in the church year. However, there is only one way to arrive at the empty tomb of Easter Sunday. We need to travel to Jesus’ cross. As we look at the cross and the blessings Jesus made possible by his death, ...read more

  • Eating At The King's Table Series

    Contributed by Mark Haines on Jan 20, 2010
    based on 8 ratings
     | 10,201 views

    Many of us willingly choose to live in spiritual, emotional, and physical poverty, but we are heirs to a great covenant between God and Abraham.

    Series Introduction: Middle Eastern people in the Bible, from Abraham to Paul, were as acquainted with covenants as we are with weddings. The Greeks and Romans did not have covenants. In fact, when the Jews translated the OT into Greek, they had to use the Greek word for “will” or ...read more

  • Restore My Soul Series

    Contributed by Mark Haines on Oct 16, 2009
    based on 14 ratings
     | 7,513 views

    We often seek restoration for our weary souls in the very things that tear us down but we need the Lord to restore our souls.

    PATTERN: PASTORAL CARE INTERVENTION THIS IS OUR PROBLEM: Everyone in this room has seen someone with a worn out, dried up, caved in, torn down, burned out soul this morning. Perhaps you woke next to him. Possibly it was the guy who cut you off in traffic on the way to worship. By chance it ...read more

  • Our Great Command

    Contributed by Mark Haines on Dec 5, 2008
    based on 4 ratings
     | 1,142 views

    We tend to view love as a warm fuzzy feeling reserved for a select few of our friends and family. However, God calls us to a life of holy love – a love founded on His love for us and built with decisive actions instead of feelings.

    Introduction: When I was in school studying to become a pastor, a fellow student said, “Church work would be a lot easier if it weren’t for people.” Me (my dilemma or question) I laughed at my friend’s statement – church work is about people. Pastors work with people day in and day out. Here ...read more

  • Behold Your King

    Contributed by Mark Haines on Dec 5, 2008
    based on 6 ratings
     | 1,798 views

    It is time to trade in our childish view of Jesus, meek and mild, for the adult vision of Jesus the conquering King.

    Introduction: The last book of the Bible, called the Revelation of Jesus Christ, is a beautiful and dangerous book. It always has been. It still is. The original author was Jesus’ closest earthly friend and perhaps one of his cousins. His name was John and the visions recorded in this book are ...read more

  • Faith Is More

    Contributed by Mark Haines on Mar 12, 2007
    based on 27 ratings
     | 1,632 views

    I’m calling God’s people in my care to develop a faith in Jesus that goes beyond mental assent (belief) to include emotional reliance (trust) and active obedience (loyalty).

    Introduction: The Bible tells us that "without faith it is impossible to please God" (Hebrews 11:6). The Bible says, "The righteous will live by faith" (Romans 1:17). That makes me think that faith is very important -- even vital. But what is faith? The Bible commands us to "stand firm in the ...read more

  • Dead Mules Don't Work

    Contributed by Mark Haines on Jan 12, 2007
    based on 11 ratings
     | 2,014 views

    Too many Christians settle for being forgiven and fail to recognize that dead sinners do not disobey God. We can live in obedience because we are alive to God and dead to sin.

    My purpose is to be the Holy Spirit’s second witness calling God’s people in my care to surrender their lives to Jesus and to live in obedience to him. Response Goal: Individuals prompted by the Holy Spirit will surrender their lives to God in prayer – at the altar rail if they want to prayer ...read more

  • Getting The Spirit Of Christmas Series

    Contributed by Mark Haines on Dec 17, 2006
    based on 5 ratings
     | 4,790 views

    The essence of Christianity is this remarkable truth: Christ came from heaven and died for us on the cross and rose again so that, in the person of the Holy Spirit, he might dwell in our lives.

    Response Goal: Individuals prompted by the Holy Spirit will join me in starting each day by saying, “Behold, the servant of the Lord. Be it unto me according to your word. Fill me with your Holy Spirit. More than anything else, I want Jesus to show up in my life. I’m available to ...read more
