  • You Are Not Just A Number To The Lord

     | 11,479 views

    The Story of Philip ministering to the Ethiopian eunuch teaches us the value God places on each human soul. The world might not treat us as anything special, but we are precious to the Lord.

    Easter 5 Acts 8:26-40 4**-2*-85*5 is a very important number to me. Can you guess what significance there is in those numbers? It’s not a phone number…it’s what Uncle Sam calls me. You see, there are a lot of Peter Schmidts living in the US, and so when I fill out official documents like tax ...read more

  • Entrust Your Time On Earth To The Triune God - Confirmation

    This focuses more on the Confirmation aspect of this Sunday than the Trinity aspect. The basic thrust is how much better it is for these confirmands to follow the Triune God than the devil.

    Confirmation – Trinity Sunday II Corinthians 13:11-14 Did you know that there were confirmation classes in the Bible? Of course, they didn’t look exactly like ours. They didn’t have a blue book filled with a lot of “What Does This Mean’s” and “This Is Most Certainly True’s.” But even in the ...read more

    A Time of Freedom 1. We are free from sin’s condemnation 2. We are free from sin’s control

    Lent 4 Romans 8:1-10 Perhaps you saw last weekend that the serial killer known as BTK was finally caught after eluding police since the 1970’s. His three-letter name was one that he had given himself, those letters standing for what he did to his victims, “Bind, Torture, Kill.” Now that he’s in ...read more

    A Time of Trust 1. Trust God in his promises 2. Trust God in your setbacks

    Lent 2 Genesis 12:1-8 Human beings generally are pretty picky about whom we place our trust in. We don’t give away our trust too easily; it often has to be earned. And once our trust in someone is gone, it is extremely difficult for them to ever earn it all back. We are continuing our series as ...read more

  • Christianity Makes No Sense!

     | 1,576 views

    Christianity Makes No Sense to our Human Way of Thinking. 1. It’s good to be poor and sad? 2. It’s good to be submissive and oppressed?

    Epiphany 4 Matthew 5:1-12 Have you ever been talking to a fellow Christian, and, as they were telling you about something that had happened to them, you made the remark, “Wow, you’ve really been blessed”? What situation could occur that you would call another person “blessed”? Maybe if the Lord ...read more

    If you’ve ever bought a used car, you have illustrated this truth. Someone got rid of that car for whatever reason: they got a new one, they wanted something bigger, or they simply just got tired of it. But that old car that they wanted to get rid of was just what you were looking for. It was trash ...read more

    Maybe you remember the end of the movie Braveheart. William Wallace, the Scottish hero, is being tortured. The king wants him and his people to give into his power and rule. But Wallace suffers through it. He won’t give in. And the very last word that he shouts as he marshals all his strength is he ...read more

    Too many Christians today pray what I call “soap opera prayers.” I used to watch a little Days Of Our Lives back in college, and usually when a character would pray on that show, it went a little something like this: “uh, God, I know I haven’t been much of a church person. But I really need you to ...read more

    We use lures when we go fishing. A lure is something that is supposed to look good to the fish you are trying to catch. When I was growing up, I had a lure that looked like an injured fish. The fish was bent a little, right at the bend there was a reddish spot that was supposed to look like a ...read more

    Sadly, we are sometimes ashamed of Jesus. I’m guilty of it, and so are all of you. Sometimes we might not hide our faith, but we don’t go out of the way either to let people know that how much Jesus means to us. “Oh man, my friend will think I’m nuts if I tell him about the Savior. I don’t want to ...read more
