    HOw will we approach the new year? What if this is the year the Lord returns?

    What are our goals for 2014? 1 Thess 5:1ff Remember those videos of returning heroes? The ones where a loved one was deployed away from home and returns unexpectedly to their family? Some of my favorites are one called “The Poppies.” The girls are a British group and sing their more

    Samson was a mighty man of God, but he took small steps that finally leads to his destruction, so it is with us. Small subtle steps can bring the strongest Christian down.

    One Small step to destruction. Judges 16:1ff We have been examining the Life of Samson. We have been seeing steps to bring down even the strongest of people. Samson was set apart by God at birth, he was the son of the Promise, a deliverer of the people, taking a Nazirite vow; yet he was more

    based on 3 ratings

    The effective church praises God no matter what the circumstances.

    Is it Worth It? Psalms 118 and Romans 8 This week all we heard in the news was bad. Japan has been overwrought with a devastating Earthquake and Tsunami.

  • Practice Hospitality Series

    Contributed by Richard White on Feb 4, 2011
    based on 6 ratings

    Looking again at the First Church, another aspect that made them so effective was that they practice hospitality. It is more than sharing lemonade and cookies.

    Practice Hospitality Acts 2:43-47 Heb 13:2 Matt 25:31-46 The effective church practices hospitality. In Romans 12 Paul commends the Roman Christians to practice hospitality. Yet what is that exactly how do we practice hospitality? Do we: 1. Open our homes to take in strangers? 2. Do we more

  • Choices

    Contributed by Richard White on Oct 30, 2010
    based on 3 ratings

    Everyday God allows us the freedom to choose. I wonder sometimes what makes two people for the same background, upbringing, moral values, choose totally different.

    Choices Luke 23:32-43 Life is full of choices, we make some everyday. We choose to get up; we choose what we will wear, what we will eat and what we will do for the day. We choose right or wrong everyday. Isn’t amazing how two people with very similar backgrounds can make totally more

    Like Mephibosheth we were crippled, expecting death, but we come to the presence of the KING and receive mercy and grace. Come and Eat.

    Come to the Table 2 Samuel 9:1-11 1 John 3:1- “How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!” The Bible seems to abound in difficult names- names like “Ne-bu-chad-nez-zar” and more

  • The Reality Of Hell Series

    Contributed by Richard White on Apr 30, 2010
    based on 7 ratings

    Thanks to the book "The Christian Atheist" I gleaned ideas for this sermon. Hell is real, do we care enough to warn others so they do not have to go there?

    The Reality of HELL Rev 20:4-15 As a preacher and chaplain, I’m often confronted by death. One thing I’ve observed is that when someone dies, that person’s loved ones want to believe their relative went to “a better place.” We’ll say things like, “She more

    Before His ascension, Jesus gave his disciples marching orders. These protocols are ours to follow.

    The last words of Jesus Matthew 28:18-20 Luke 24:46-49 Acts 1:8 Mark 16:15-18 We call these the Great Commission, it is our marching orders. In EMS we call these protocols. It is what we are to follow, no questions asked, just do it. Whenever we are in a situation, all we need to do is more

    These 72 hours would change the world, spiritually, religious, and physically forever. Jesus did what only He could do, pay the price for all of our sins.

  • Jesus Lord Of The Impossible

    Contributed by Richard White on Feb 20, 2010
    based on 3 ratings

    How easy is it for a cripple to get up on his own? How easy is it to love our enemies? How easy is to forgive someone who hurt us deeply? Jesus commands us to do all this.

    This morning we visit a place called Bethesda. An invalid, crippled, lying on the ground waiting for the miraculous. Jesus says "Do you want to get well?" Some people do not want to get better, they like the attention they get, or possibly the thought of doing anything different scares them. more

    Many go through life spiritually dehydrated. Rituals, creeds and the like do not fill us. Only Jesus can give us this fulfillment when we learn to worship in Spirit and in Truth.

    Living Water John 4:4-26 Recently one of the major denominations met in Columbus to debate, of all things, whether or not Jesus Christ is the one true Savior of the world. Is he the universal Savior or might there be several? What about the other world religions and their claims? Some people more

    based on 4 ratings

    WE must become living sacrifices. Our life should be one sacrifice of Thanksgiving after another.

    Living with Thanksgiving Psalms 100 What Do You Think of When You Think of Thanksgiving? Eating, Football, Long Weekend, Shopping, History, or Family? Thanksgiving is much more than any of this. True thanksgiving is not just a day for food, football, and family. It’s not just a holiday every more
