    Message for graduates about trading good things for lesser quality.

    1 Kings 10:14-17, 14:25-28 – Stolen Gold and Second-Best Bronze Well, let me tell you a story. It’s not for the faint of heart, though. It’s a sad story. A sad tale of a man who was robbed of his gold. The man’s name was Rehoboam. He was the king of the land of Judah, ...read more

    Thomas had doubts, and so do we sometimes. How does Jesus deal with doubters? With much grace!

  • Cross Carrier (Simon Of Cyrene) Series

    Contributed by Pat Cook on Apr 19, 2011
    based on 4 ratings
     | 6,142 views

    #3 in series, about Simon of Cyrene, and about how we all need to carry our own crosses.

    Mark 15:21-24 – Were You There? #3 – Cross Carrier (Simon of Cyrene) The name Simon is fairly common in the New Testament. The name means, “God has heard”, and it’s a fairly noble idea. There was Simon the Zealot, one of Jesus’ disciples. One of the brothers of Jesus, son of both Mary and ...read more

    based on 7 ratings
     | 3,949 views

    Pharoah delayed in getting rid of the plague of frogs; we procrastinate in getting rid of sin.

    Exodus 8:1-11 – Frogs You remember George Burns, TV star of the 50’s and 60’s, one half of the comedy duo Burns and Allen, with his wife Gracie Allen. I heard a story about Mr. Burns. His friends always kidded him about his singing. Burns, a master of self-deprecating humor, ...read more

  • What About Peter? Series

    Contributed by Pat Cook on Jun 9, 2006
    based on 1 rating
     | 1,481 views

    This is a controversial but hopefully delicate sermon about Jesus’ appearance to Peter, and about how some things just aren’t our business to know.

    1 Corinthians 15:1-8 – What About Peter? Tonight we are going to start off by reading our scripture, a very early creed of the church. It was like an Apostle’s Creed, a few brief but clear lines of doctrine about what the early believers actually believed. Let’s read 1 Corinthians 15:1-8. ...read more

  • Behind Closed Doors Series

    Contributed by Pat Cook on Jun 9, 2006
    based on 11 ratings
     | 5,616 views

    This is about the disciples locking the doors because of fear; Jesus showed up, and they were afraid anyway. This deals with fear in our lives and overcoming it.

    John 20:19-20 – Behind Closed Doors Today we are continuing in our series on Jesus’ resurrection called He is Risen indeed. What did the resurrection mean to the original band of followers, and what does the resurrection mean for us nearly 2000 years later? The truth is, the resurrection ...read more

  • Sight Unseen Series

    Contributed by Pat Cook on May 30, 2006
    based on 68 ratings
     | 28,015 views

    When the Risen Jesus told Mary Magdalene not to cling to Him, it was because Jesus wanted Mary to have a faith that went beyond the 5 senses. Jesus asks us to walk by faith, not by sight.

    John 20:10-18 – Sight Unseen Today I am preaching 2 different sermons on the same passage of Scripture. That’s really the power of the Bible – there is so much good stuff in there. Two different people can preach on the same passage and get 2 completely different sermons out of it. The same ...read more

  • Distractions Series

    Contributed by Pat Cook on May 30, 2006
    based on 36 ratings
     | 4,858 views

    Three times people did not recognize the Risen Jesus. This looks at why. There were spiritual reasons, of course, but also real physical reasons too. This looks at what distracts us from seeing Jesus.

    John 20:10-18 – Distractions Today we are continuing our series called He is Risen Indeed, messages about Jesus rising from the dead and what that means for us some 1976 years later. Today we are in John 20:10-18. We are looking at the 1st appearance Jesus makes after rising from the grave. ...read more

  • Fools Rush In Series

    Contributed by Pat Cook on May 22, 2006
    based on 1 rating
     | 1,502 views

    This is about John beating Peter in a footrace to the empty tomb, but Peter going in first. t’s about Peter’s courage, and how we need to live courageous lives, following God’s plans for us.

    John 20:1-9 – Fools Rush In Today, as we are continuing our series called He is Risen Indeed, where we have been studying Jesus’ resurrection and what it means to us, we turn our attention to the men of the story. We have studied Jesus’ female disciples, but now we look for inspiration from ...read more

  • The Carpenter's Cloth Series

    Contributed by Pat Cook on May 22, 2006
    based on 11 ratings
     | 5,867 views

    This is taken from Sigmund Brouwer’s wonderful book of the same name. This speaks of the cross being only part of God’s plan of salvation for us, the empty tomb being the other. Jesus the carpenter wants to complete His work in us.

    John 20:1-9 – The Carpenter’s Cloth Tonight I’m going to share a thought with you that I read several years ago, and it has blessed me ever since. In fact, likely, you remember it since I read it to you on my 1st Easter Sunday message in Doaktown and Blissfield. I hope that it encourages ...read more

  • Calling All Angels Series

    Contributed by Pat Cook on May 2, 2006
    based on 16 ratings
     | 1,796 views

    This talks about the role that angels played on the first Resurrection day. God used them because He wanted to, not because He had to. It’s the same with His servants today.

    Luke 24:1-8 – Calling All Angels Tonight we are continuing to look at various angles of the resurrection and what it means for us today. Tonight’s message is a thought I have never preached on before, and I hope that it speaks to your heart. I’m talking about angels. Let’s read Luke ...read more

  • God Still Moves Stones Series

    Contributed by Pat Cook on May 1, 2006
    based on 5 ratings
     | 4,481 views

    This speaks of the guards and the rolled-away stone from Jesus’ tomb. It basically says that God’s plans cannot be stopped, and we can trust Him with the things that seem to block His will for our lives.

  • Hope Is In Bloom Series

    Contributed by Pat Cook on Apr 18, 2006
    based on 6 ratings
     | 2,258 views

    Easter morning sermon on the hope that Jesus gives us. Also the start of a series on the Resurrection.

    1 Peter 1:3-4 – Hope is in Bloom Let’s read our passage for today, 1 Peter 1:3-4, paying close attention to the idea of life in v3. As I was preparing for this message last week, I was thinking about this Easter lily that I bought Michelle. We both love these flowers. They are really ...read more

  • Picky Picky Belief Series

    Contributed by Pat Cook on Apr 14, 2006
    based on 6 ratings
     | 1,589 views

    The religious leaders were selective about which laws to follow and which ones to ignore or defy. We are too. The point of this is to expose our own double-standards and lead us to show mercy to others.

    John 19:31-37 – Picky Picky Belief Tonight, in our last message of The Life of Jesus before Resurrection Day, I’d like to point out an interesting characteristic about the religious leaders that really bears hearing. Just to let you know: likely something I say tonight might make you angry. ...read more
