  • Passionate Series

    Contributed by Rick Duncan on Dec 8, 2005
    based on 25 ratings
     | 7,117 views

    Let’s get rid of some misconceptions of God. What if you knew that God really loves you? What will happen if you let that touch your heart?

    God gets bad press. And I’m not so much talking about in Newsweek or in the PD or on NBC, ABC, or CBS. I’m talking about in your mind… and mine. Some of us think that God admits us begrudgingly into his Kingdom. That Christ found a loophole in the law. That He did some fancy ...read more

  • The Win Of Worship Series

    Contributed by Rick Duncan on Sep 15, 2005
    based on 16 ratings
     | 3,713 views

    Worship satisfies. It gives us right priorities. More joy, peace, hope. When your blessings go up to God, His blessings come down to you.

    We are wired for worship! Several years ago a businessman here in Brecksville said to me, “I don’t like that word ‘worship.’ Sounds soft. It’s not for me.” Well, last week, we learned that worship is why we were created. It’s what gives us fulfillment. It satisfies. It gives us right ...read more

  • Caution: Watching Out For Wrong Way Worship Series

    Contributed by Rick Duncan on Sep 15, 2005
    based on 31 ratings
     | 5,151 views

    The issue is not: Will you worship? We are wired for worship. The issue is: Who will we worship and how will we worship?

    You are wired. Wired for worship. Lots of people are walking around our city day-after-day and don’t know it. Wired for worship. Some of you are thinking, “Come on. A series on worship? Man, why do I need that? I’m a business person. I’m a teacher or homemaker or student or carpenter. ...read more

  • Audience One Series

    Contributed by Rick Duncan on Sep 15, 2005
    based on 4 ratings
     | 2,862 views

    You’re not the audience. God is. We are all players, performers who live and worship before Him.

    Today, we are wrapping up our series “wired for worship.” But how do you worship God in a world of pain and suffering? The problem is huge. And on August 29, indescribable suffering showed up again as Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast. Some say that we can still worship God because this ...read more

  • Unshakable

    based on 23 ratings

    Life change happens best in a community group. It’s the best thing you can get involved in to have an unshakable walk with God.

    I’ve had the privilege of helping two teenagers learn to drive. Both of our oldest sons had the same habit. They loved to drive waaay right. As a passenger, you thought, “If he swerves to the right just a little, I’m going to be wearing a mailbox.” I’d say things like, “Whatever you do, don’t ...read more

  • Help@home Series

    The Bible word for helping is serving.

    Does anything like this ever happen at your house? Anybody there ever start throwing a pity-party? “I’m the only one doing anything around here. No one really appreciates me.” The attitude has kicked in. Someone finally notices that you aren’t very happy. “Hey! What’s wrong with you?” ...read more

  • Food For A Spiritually Fit Life Series

    based on 6 ratings
     | 4,653 views

    To be physically fit requires proper nutrition. The same is true spiritually. The proper nutrition for us as believers is the Word of God.

    “Get fit.” That’s the lead story in this month’s Cleveland magazine. Are you in shape spiritually? “If God had intended for us to touch our toes, He’d have put them on our knees.” “I’m in shape – “Round” is a shape, isn’t it?” But getting fit is really not a joking matter. I like the idea ...read more

  • Where Your Treasure Is Series

    Contributed by Rick Duncan on Sep 7, 2005
    based on 13 ratings
     | 18,244 views

    Your heart moves toward what you cherish, and God wants you to move toward Him.

    Sometimes we’ll hear talks on stewardship that basically try to guilt us into giving. That’s not our intent today. I want to follow the example of Jesus and remind us how to increase our joy in giving because we know that we are getting more and more for our future. Do not store up for ...read more

  • The Spiritually Healthy Heart Series

    Contributed by Rick Duncan on Sep 7, 2005
    based on 8 ratings
     | 6,142 views

    The heart of the human problem is the problem of the human heart.

    The heart of the human problem is the problem of the human heart. That means that the heart of my problem is the problem of my heart. And the heart of your problem is the problem of your heart. Jeremiah 17:9 says, “The heart is deceitful and desperately wicked…” Watch over your heart with all ...read more

  • Every 6 Steps...joy! Series

     | 10,490 views

    Worshipping the right God the right way gives us joy.

    Everyone is wired to worship. Last night, 160,000 people came together to worship. Where? At the Bristol Motor Speedway. Every August, the Sharpie 500 takes place in Bristol, TN, a town of only 25,000 people. Just across the state line is Bristol, VA, a town of only 18,000 people. But 160,000 ...read more

  • How Change Happens Series

    Contributed by Rick Duncan on Sep 4, 2005
    based on 8 ratings
     | 1,722 views

    You can try to change God’s way or you can change the world’s way. You can change with the help of God or you can try to change with the help of self. You can try an inside-out kind of change or an outside-in kind of change.

    I grew up in the church. My dad was a pastor. I can remember people in those churches he pastored who attended services every Sunday morning, Sunday night, and Wednesday night, who knew their Bible, who taught classes, who gave money, who led committees, but who were also mean as snakes. ...read more

  • Where Change Begins Series

     | 2,627 views

    Frankly, some of us are stuck. The same arguments with your wife. Trying to break the habit of cursing and can’t. Computer pornography is choking out your spiritual life. Your kids can predict when you are going to start yelling at them. There’s no mo

    I’ve lived here in NE Ohio for 18 years. I’ve never been stuck in the snow… until December. I was in a hurry to get to the office. And got stuck just around bend from our house. Being stuck was definitely not OK. I walked back home to get Ryan. I asked a neighbor to help. Before it was all ...read more

  • What Change Loks Like Series

    Contributed by Rick Duncan on Sep 4, 2005
    based on 4 ratings
     | 1,270 views

    Think about the one thing in yourself that you would most like to see changed before you get too old. Or better, what would those closest to you say that they would like to see changed in your life?

    About 30 years ago, I started to see poems and prayers pop up on my mom’s refrigerator. They read something like this: “Lord, don’t me become a mean old woman. Help me become sweeter and sweeter as I grow older and older.” I called her yesterday and asked her about those poems and prayers. My ...read more

  • Power Unleashed Series

    Contributed by Rick Duncan on Sep 4, 2005
    based on 64 ratings
     | 6,484 views

    We need Him to open doors for us. We need Him to lift the weight that we can’t lift. We need Him to do things for us that we can’t do for ourselves. A simple question: Has the power of God been unleashed in your life?

    What if God showed up in ways in your life that simply defy human explanation? What if He did for you something that you could not do for yourself? What if the stamp of the supernatural was such a part of your life that everyone around you said, “Look at what’s happening for him. Look at what’s ...read more

    Howard Hendricks said, “If your faith doesn’t work at home, it doesn’t work."

    Hey big guy, practice what you preach. Walk the walk, don’t just talk the talk. Three Reasons to believe that computers are female: 1. Even your smallest mistakes are stored in long-term memory for later retrieval. 2. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending ...read more
