    based on 11 ratings
     | 2,054 views

    Addresses the world-wide financial crises and how to deal with it.

    Your mind is a powerful thing isn’t it? A single thought can cause a smile to come sliding across your face; a single thought can wipe that same smile away. A Single thought, mulled over in the mind can disturb your days and ruin your nights. Our thoughts have a powerful influence over how ...read more

  • The Truth Of The Good News

    Contributed by Michael Trask on Jun 13, 2007
    based on 5 ratings
     | 1,125 views

    In a general way, compares Christianity with all other relgions in the world and demonstrates the uniqueness of the Gospel.

    What if its not true? What if everything that you have learned about the Lord Jesus and the Salvation he provides is a combination of wishful thinking and fantasy? What if you have been programmed, duped, hoodwinked, and otherwise misguided? This thought has most certainly crossed your ...read more

  • Restoring The Cars

    Contributed by Michael Trask on May 17, 2006
    based on 7 ratings
     | 3,486 views

    This wonderful section of scripture on the Love of God and our Love for others is explained by way of an extended analogy. God is like a "car guy" who sees a "classic" in a rust bomb. We must have the same eyes when we consider others.

    Have you ever known one of those guys who are into restoring cars? Most of us do. They scour the junkyards and the abandoned farmsteads of the midwest looking for old wrecks. When you we see a dilapidated old rust bomb sitting out in a field with weeds growing through the rusty ...read more

     | 6,794 views

    The cleansing effect of having a dumpster in your driveway is a amazing. You can get rid of a lot of clutter in your house. In a simlar way, "junk" can gather in each of us who are called to be the temple of the Lord. Jesus cleanses us.

    Every so often, as you drive around the various neighborhoods in these parts, you will notice the presence of dumpsters. Sometimes they are there to collect the waste from construction; sometimes reconstruction; but other times, the dumpster seems to be just for junk. I find this ...read more

  • The Gestation Of Sin

    Contributed by Michael Trask on Mar 7, 2006
    based on 22 ratings
     | 4,449 views

    This sermon gives "ultrasound" picture of the development of life-controlling sins and shows how God has given us all that we need to overcome them.

    The Gestation of Sin James 1:12-18 So, how far along are you? I know, that’s not really the kind of question you would expect to hear a pastor utter at the beginning of his sermon. It’s really the kind of question that one pregnant lady would ask another as they wait to see the ...read more

  • A Specific God In A World Of Options

    We are the Burger King generation. We are used to being told to "have it your way." But if we are going to be saved or helped by the Lord, it will be in his way.

    Day after day we are confronted with a vast array of options. So many options that it will make your head spin. A question as simple as, “How do you want your hamburger?” can be quite a challenge. According to Burger King, the home of the Whopper, there 1024 different ways for a customer ...read more

  • We Can Fly!

    Contributed by Michael Trask on Feb 10, 2006
    based on 23 ratings
     | 5,104 views

    The "gravity" of life often seems to hold us down. But no problem that we might have is bigger than the Lord himself. He wants us to see things from his perspective and thereby raise us up on eagles wings.

    Ever thought about how cool it would be, to be able to fly? And I don’t mean with the aid of one of those noisy mechanical contraptions we call airplanes. I mean you with just your body, soaring above the earth; you, banking over the forests; you skimming over the rivers; you ...read more

  • New Clothes/New Image

    Contributed by Michael Trask on Dec 13, 2005
    based on 26 ratings
     | 3,901 views

    We sense that we’ve got an image problem. Like Adam and Eve before us, we try to fix it with clothing. But it can only be truly fixed with the garments of Salvation which our Lord provides through his Son Jesus

    “I delight greatly in the LORD; my soul rejoices in my God. For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness.” Does this look all right? Do these go together or do they clash? Does this make me look fat? These are the kinds of questions we impose upon ...read more

  • It's Not That Complex!

    Contributed by Michael Trask on Oct 26, 2005
    based on 36 ratings
     | 3,486 views

    We often have a tendency to mask our failure to love others by referring to it as a “complex issue”. It’s not true. Jesus shows us how utterly simple the issue actually is.

    “It’s A LONG STORY; A COMPLEX ISSUE; A GRAY AREA”. You have heard statements like this haven’t you? Perhaps you used them yourself. Phrases like this are often used as a way to bring an end to a discussion. More often then not, those who say them are trying to bring an end to a ...read more

  • The Better Life

    based on 12 ratings
     | 1,099 views

    We Americans have made it our goal to seek "The Good Life". We do that by earning and spending. But God would rather give us "The Better Life" that comes from earning and giving.

    One of the main things I think that we and all other people in America are searching for is the good life. Am I right? I mean, we all want to have a good home, a good car or two, good vacations, good children, good friends, good food, and so on. Who wouldn’t want such a good life? ...read more

  • The Race Of Faith

    based on 35 ratings
     | 2,352 views

    Keeping the faith can sometimes be very much like jogging: its a battle against yourself.

    You’ve see them along side the road. They often wear ragged and loose fitting clothes. Their expression is usually a mixture of pain and determination. You’ve seen them in the rain, you’ve seen them in the snow, you’ve seen them when the sun is blistering hot and the humidity is nearly ...read more
