  • Worship

     | 9,808 views

    When Jesus says, "A time is coming and now has come when true worshippers will worship the Lord in spirit and in truth," he was giving us some insights into worship.

    “Worship” John 4:7-23 If you were to ask 100 people what worship is, you’d probably get 100 different answers. The primary reason for this would be the wide range of backgrounds and experiences. Another reason for such a wide range of views of worship is the never-ending list of “worship ...read more

    based on 133 ratings
     | 11,393 views

    Pew-Sitters are those who come to church, but all they do is SIT and SOAK -- soaking in the goodness of God’s word and the goodness of fellowship. But when it comes to their KINGDOM BUILDING responsibility, their attitude is one of neglect and disregard.

    “Pew Sitters” Ezekiel 34:1-22 Introduction: I want to begin today by quoting the old Gospel Evangelist, Sam Jones. He used to get in the pulpit and tell his congregation that he was running a Gospel Shoe Establishment. That is, he just laid the shoes out there and told the people, “if the shoe ...read more

     | 1,868 views

    Just as Jesus’ parents lost him, we too can lose Christ if but only for a short time. That which we lose is that close personal relationship.

    “Finding Christ” Luke 2:41-52 (Read Text) “Finding Christ” implies that he has been or can be lost. And I want to make clear what I mean by that. I do not mean that a person can lose the grace of God once they have received it, but what a person can lose, because of their actions, is the ...read more
